My trip to Iceland was awesome. We learned so much history and geology. Iceland is beautiful with its waterfalls, hot springs, geyers, horses and black beaches. The Blue Lagoon was a favorite.

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!

The trip was fantastic! We were able to see so many things, learn so much, relax a little, and just enjoy a new culture that was amazing. Can't wait for the next trip!!
