Private tour of Iceland to explore beautiful scenery

  A couple visited Iceland in May 2017

“My husband and I would like a trip to explore the beautiful scenery of Iceland, preferably a private tour or very small group, experiencing off the beaten path accommodations or excursions. Easy to moderate activity levels. We definitely want to bathe in hot springs and see volcanoes, glaciers, and waterfalls. We also want time to relax, so we do not want a jam-packed schedule each day of our trip. We would like about 3 nights in Reykjavik and 4-5 nights traveling in the countryside.”

Traveler Review

Everything was good and we had a wonderful time on our trip. I do feel like a few things could be improved. Kimkim was not proactive in providing itineraries or details. Everything was booked but I didn't receive confirmation number or vouchers with the tour agency. When I asked about this I was assured that everything was all set and I didn't need any confirmation number or voucher.

While everything turned out to be fine I would have felt more comfortable with some sort of voucher. Also, the receipts for payment are not itemized. That would also be appreciated. We did have a couple minor hiccups. Our guide had a hard time locating our snorkel group and the snorkel group had us booked for the next day. It was all worked out and we got to snorkel but there were about 45 minutes of confusion.

On our second day of touring, we had been told that lunch was included. It was not. We had not brought along any food. Luckily our guide shared his extra food with us and all was fine. But had he not we would have gone very hungry as this was an all day tour.

But not to focus on the negatives! We had wonderful and personal experiences with guides who customized our trips. They were all friendly and full of information. We had three days of very rainy weather and they all helped us enjoy ourselves despite that. Booking with kimkim was convenient with the chat function and spread out payment. I would use the service again.
