OMG….this tour was amazing! Our tour guide, Martin, was incredibly nice and helpful. He made extra stops for photo ops (possibly this was available because we were a small group). He even took photos of us ALOT. He went WAY ABOVE anything I would ever expect and treated us family! The ice cave was just like the photos I have seen on the internet. Absolutely AWESOME!!!
Truly memorable experience
Elizabeth_S, Feb 2023
The glacier and ice cave were the highlights of our whole trip to Iceland, and we were so lucky to have a perfect but unexpected sighting of the Northern Lights. Our guide (Marcin) went above and beyond to be thoughtful and helpful - even stopping for an impromptu snowball fight which my kids loved and broke up the long drive. The food options available were great too.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Thank you for the memorable review! So fun to read that Marcin squeezed in a snowball fight with the kids too!! He really does put in such an effort and truly cares about his guests. And to see the Northern Lights too! What a treat! We look forward to having you back again one day.
Amazing ice cave
Elizabeth_C, Jan 2023
The first day was fun, with beautiful scenery. We enjoyed the waterfalls and the black sand beach.. However, but the second day was truly amazing! Hiking in the ice cave in the glacier was the highlight of our stay in Iceland! !
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thank you for the amazing review, Elizabeth. Glad you enjoyed the ice cave and the rest of the trip.
Best Adventure Ever
Kevin_A, Dec 2022
Awesome tour! Hidden Iceland is a top quality tour company. Van was really comfortable with lot of space, there was enough time for every stop and the guide Max truly cares about everyone being safe and comfortable. Hotel super comfortable and many stops for snacks and toiletes. I completely recommend it.

Thanks for the awesome review, Kevin. Max really is an incredible guide so we're happy to read that he was caring throughout the trip.
A Trip For The Eyes
Elisha_J, Feb 2022
Ingi made this trip memorable, wealth of knowledge. I’d call it a “Trip for the Eyes.” Sites you won’t find anywhere- do not miss this one and make sure to have you phone ready for hundreds of pictures. After seeing the weather conditions (high winds, ice, snow) and poor treated narrow single road lanes- I wouldn’t rent a car, there were many off the road. Ingi was an excellent driver and made everyone comfortable even when it became a white out with little visibility. This tour company was great at scheduling multiple sites within the shorter Winter days and Ingi made sure we had appropriate time spent at each location. If I had gone myself I would have missed out on a lot of sites. The hotel we stayed at was wonderful- clean, spacious rooms and large windows over looking the mountain range in the distance. It was better than our 3 star hotel in downtown Reykjavik- I didn't want to leave. Our group was fun, many from US and some overseas, mostly 20-40 yr olds- but by the end of the trip everyone had new friends. Couldn’t say it enough- do not miss this booking. Safe travels~ Sorry no photos to attached the files are too large for the site.

Hi Elisha, This is such a fantastic and comprehensive review. We appreciate you taking the time to make it. And of course we appreciate you travelling with us. It always means a lot that everyone made friends too by the end. That's something Ingi is great at too (as well as his safe driving). Come again any time!
