    What an amazing...
    Deirdre_M, Mar 2023
    What an amazing experience. I can't recommend highly enough that you book this trip. Our guide Borgi(apologies if spelt wrong!)was excellent. He only takes max 7 on each tour and at different times to other companies so we had the caves to ourselves which was extremely special. He provided all the safety gear that was needed. He was informative and fun. One tip though is please make sure you are correctly dressed. Proper warm clothes and shoes. Excellent experience.
    Don’t hesitate to book this tour!

    We learned that the tour operator’s company is called Ice Caves in Iceland, and that is not just a description of the experience. Google the name and you can save some money by not paying the additional fees that Viator/Tripadvosor charge. I would recommend this. It was one of the most memorable excursions that I have taken while traveling. The operator was kind, courteous, and truly wished for us to have an amazing experience, as opposed to being money to fill a seat. We saw the experience of other companies while at the ice caves, and everyone in our group was eternally grateful that we chose this one.

    Thanks for that and for going with us this is special and for me I want it to be just that so people can have the best memories from the cave. Best regards Boggi
