The tour guide was exceptional. He was very knowledgeable and fun. I lost one of my gloves at the Globe and he offered to try to get it when he went back with his afternoon tour. Well he did find it and personally dropped it back at my hotel. I don’t remember his name but my tour was on Wed morning on March 11. He was also multi-lingual and gave his tour in several languages accommodating everyone by speaking their language. Whoever gets my tour guide will be blessed.

Thanks for the sightseeing experience. I thoroughly enjoyed being able to do this in a small group which made it more personal and easy to ask questions. I recommend this activity to anyone who is interested in understanding and knowing more about Iceland beyond the usual and common adventurous activities. Thanks Eve for being professional and a great tour guide.

The sight seeing activity was fantastic. Just felt that we got less time at Perlan because we could not cover that at all. A little bit more time would have been great. However, the bus driver/guide was good. He provided us with city information was very helpful. Would definitely recommend.
