We had a fantastic trip to Iceland with our agent and guide. He is a true professional, but also fun and adventurous and was a great fit for our group. His sense of humor entertained us throughout the trip and especially on some of the long car rides. Every recommendation he made was spot on and I especially liked that he was constantly pivoting the itinerary based on weather, crowds, road conditions, and accommodating our last minute whims and requests. He toured us around in his personal, off road modified pickup truck, which although was a bit cramped for 4 of us - it would have been 100% comfortable for 3 - turned out to be an esssential part of our trip and was well worth the slight compromise of space. The truck allowed us to access remote areas where few others could tread. It also (not so subtly) added to the spirit of adventure we hoped for in our trip to Iceland. As the owner of the company, he is not able to guide every trip personally, but after spending 9 days with him we got to witness him supporting his other guides via phone and at times even in person and it was obvious that he was going above and beyond for every group he had visiting. Zicasso’s past recommendations have been outstanding as well, but our trip to Iceland with our agent leads the pack in terms of overall planning, professionalism, and execution.
We most enjoyed our glacier hike, which included visits to multiple ice caves. The views and scenery were unbelievable throughout the trip, but we especially enjoyed the agent’s selection of small family run hotels, which included a stay at mountain cabin like rooms at a working cattle farm near Myvatn and a stay at waterfront cottages in the East Fjords.
Nothing. The trip was planned an executed perfectly. I’m especially happy that our agent talked us out of self driving, which we initially set out to do.
