When we booked this tour I made sure that I could reschedule or get a refund if the Northern Lights were not visible- said so right on their website. Our flight to Akureyri was canceled because of a storm. I called this tour company after our flight was canceled the first day and rescheduled the tour for the next day.... More

Jon was the best guide ever! He shared so much knowledge about the filming of game of thrones in iceland. We visited the sites where they filmed Jon first meeting Mance Rayder, Sam running through a blizzard and being grabbed by a whitewalker, the cave where Jon Snow breaks his oath with Ingrig and many more! We even got to... More

This was a great all day tour from Akureyri. Lilji relayed many esoteric nuggets of information that we wouldn't have gotten on our own. Such as her father blowing up a waterfall during the coldest winter, and what constitutes a forest in Iceland. Although our tour was combined with a game of thrones tour to keep the numbers up, it...

I took the GOT, with Myriam if I am not mistaken, she was such a great tour guide! I would highly recommend TTV

We arrived in Akureyri just as the first storm of the year did. There was significant snowfall the night before our Lake Myvatn Tour and we were concerned that the tour would not go. It did, however, even though there were only two of us and we had not paid for a private tour. Our guide was Lily and she... More

Christian was an amazing tour guide. He took us on the Game of Thrones tour but really it was an all encompassing Icelandic extravaganza. The nature, the culture, the food, and the film history was fascinating and thorough. We learned so much, saw familiar scenes and locations and had one of the best lunches of our trip (The Cow Shed... More

My husband and I had an amazing day with Kristian two days ago. There was only the two of us on tour and the tour still ran. Kristian was informative and very easy to talk to. On time pick up. Treated us exceptionally well and restored our faith in Icelandic tourism in general as we had been experiencing a very... More

This was the one tour company that picked us up on time in Iceland. Yay! Lilija's stories about her life in Iceland were very interesting and really helped us understand Iceland's culture more--the Christmas cat, how they live by the weather etc. We were given plenty of opportunity to stop for bathrooms but wish we had a bit more time...

Booked tour with Jon and was able to customize so we could see just the sights that we were interested in. 4 person SuperJeep tour allowed us to have a very personalized experience. Evelyn was our tour guide and she was truly the highlight of the tour for us. She was very responsive to our requests and went out of... More
