Fantastic trip. This Florida girl was not looking forward to Iceland in February, but the cold was overcome by the warmth and friendliness of the Icelanders we encountered on this trip. It is truly a beautiful and magical landscape. Blue Lagoon was certainly a highlight as was the Northern Lights, which we got to see! We came away with an admiration for their conservation and use of their natural resources to enhance their every day lives. A great cultural, educational and enchanting experience. Can't wait to go back!

Our trip was AMAZING! ... It would be the first trip that my sister and I have ever taken together and I felt, at the time, not knowing about the company- I would be taking a BIG RISK! However...what a pleasant surprise! Our ticket arrangements were accurate and without complications, the hotel accommodations at Hotel Klopp was perfect, location, staff, cleanliness and breakfast was all outstanding! The best part was that whenever I called, and I did so because I was nervous about the reservation being secure, someone personally responded to my call and answered my questions or needs with respect - taking time to ensure I understood the issue. There was never a long wait time, or numerous robot links to get a connection and I felt that the representative was not only patient but wasn't inconvenienced by the call. I now recommend Gate 1 Travel to everyone that asks about my trip to Iceland and I'm looking to book another trip soon! ... I can't imagine why I didn't travel this way earlier. Live and Learn!

Our trip was excellent. This is my second trip with Gate 1 and I am very happy with it. Our hotel was in the Ideal location. We were right in the center of town and could walk everywhere. It was very clean and the breakfast and service was excellent. Our tour guide Guccu was also great. She was very nice, helpful, and very knowledgeable. Overall it was fantastic and I always rave about Gate 1 to everyone I talk to. I have another trip planned with Gate 1 in April and I’m very much looking forward to it.

The trip was terrific. Thanks for asking. We are a family with a wide age span ( 70, 50, 45 and 12). Everyone of us loved the trip. The raw landscape was breathtaking. Our guides were knowledgeable and helpful. The Blue Lagoon, at the end of our trip, was incredible.

My trip was great! Our guide Luvisa was excellent. She was so helpful and informative. The town was very easy to visit and the bus system was so punctual. The water was so good and FREE! I would definitely recommend.

The trip was excellent, I had limited concern as Iceland says they are a bit behind the curve in that the volume of tourists is increasing and their hotels etc are just now catching up , but I saw no lack of facilities. The hotel was good, the restaurants were great, the citizens of Iceland are very welcoming...Nothing could be improved upon , considering the geographies of the country, the trip, for me, was perfect. My tour director , Goodney and the driver, Augusto added very much to the enjoyment of this most pleasurable travel experience.

Our Iceland trip was everything we have come to expect from Gate 1. A fun, organized, informative adventure. No other travel company provides a better value with such a high level of service. Our tour guide in Iceland, Hanna, was amazing. She gave us a better understanding of what it is like to be Icelandic with the perfect blend of history, culture, and personal stories. She made her country come alive for us. We would highly recommend this trip to anyone considering travel to Iceland!

We had a great trip with Gate 1 to Iceland. The itinerary was perfect. We had a wonderful time and a memorable vacation. The tour guide, Hanna, is the best tour guide we ever had. She is very professional, knowledgeable, and entertaining. We would like to go back to Iceland and would definitely consider booking with Gate 1 again for future trips.

Our trip was fantastic. It was the perfect introduction to Iceland, and we're already planning our next trip back. Our tour manager and driver were both great, and really made our trip fun and worry-free. We wish we could have spent more time there, but we have pictures and memories that will last forever.
