Iceland west coast & golden circle - 5 days, Iceland - Aug 6 - Aug 13, 2019

Traveler: John B. - Local specialist: Emanuela Grieco

I appreciated the detailed itinerary and arrangements that Emanuela prepared for our Iceland trip. She had lots of activities and suggestions for how to make the most of our time there, visiting Reykjavik, the Snaefellsnes, Thingvellir, Golden Circle, and southern coast. As we travelled at a self-pace, we were not able to do all the suggestions, but I think that we got the highlights. The recommendation for the Iceland Lava Show in Vik was great, the show is informative, entertaining and interactive!

One suggestion that I have is that while the rental car (Kia station wagon) was fine, there are many places where the roads got a little rough (pot-holes in gravel). Having a little more ground clearance (such as an SUV) would have been better. Also, we didn't use the GPS much, and opted for an in-car WiFi hotspot and used our phones for navigation.

Thanks for your feedback, John.
I am very glad to hear you had a perfect time in Iceland and I hope you enjoyed your Ed Sheeran's concert, too.

Thank you very much for your suggestions. I find them very useful and I will definitely keep them in mind for my next trips.

I also would like to take the occasion to thank you once more to have booked your trip with me. Please feel free to contact me again, should you decide to come back to Iceland for a visit.

All the best,
