Toured the perimeter (mostly) of Iceland with a Globus Tour. It was fantastic!

Thor our guide did a wonderful job telling us about whatever we saw or went to. Arni our driver also did a wonderful job keeping us safe on the road. Both Thor & Arni are professional, polite and knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour to anyone thinking about going to Iceland.
Tour guide, bus driver and all the people on the bus were wonderful.

Globus took care of all of our needs which made the whole experience great.
This tour was truly magnificent, all we had expected and more. My wife and I traveled with two grandchildren (ages 14 and 16) and two long-time friends, along with five... read more others for a total of 11 in our group. Our guide, Thor Ostensen, was outstanding -- very knowledgeable, attentive to the diverse needs of the group, and often taking us to special places off the stated itinerary, and with a great sense of humor. For the grandkids especially this was an amazing experience that they will treasure for years. My wife and I have been to many places around the world but this trip was truly special, and we have no doubt we made the right choice in selecting a tour of Iceland. We are still trying to absorb all that we saw and did on this trip. The fact that we were fortunate to have almost perfect weather was an added bonus. More
I recently finished this GJ Travel tour of Iceland, and as much as I generally dislike organized tours, I loved this one. It hit all the high points, all... read more the spots I wanted to visit. We had a congenial, international group of 13 people on a small bus and had a great time throughout the tour. But the highlight of the tour was our guide, Ingimundur. In fact, I wonder if the tour would have been quite so fantastic without him. He spoke perfect English, had a great sense of humor, knew all the Icelandic myths and sagas, shared Icelandic jokes and culture with us, and was flexible with the itinerary when some small changes in the order we saw things made sense. I recommend this tour for anyone, but also recommend finding out if Ingimundur will be your tour guide. He's the best! More
