Choosing Extreme Iceland was the best decision for our trip. We booked all our tours through them, including a private 2 day tour to Jokulsarlon, private day tour to Arnaker cave, Reykjanes peninsula, hot springs of Seltun, Golden Circle tour on Gray lines bus, and Viking horse riding tour from Ishestar.
Our tour guide for our 2 day tour, Ingolfur Bruun was AMAZING!! He was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, funny, professional, and mindful of safety. He far exceeded our expectations for a guide, bringing us to see more than we even requested, amazing sight after sight--he definitely has pride in his work and wanted us to have a wonderful experience. I can't praise him enough, he is THE BEST tour guide I've ever met.
Our 2nd guide, Ragnar, for the private cave tour was very nice and patient. His personality is quieter, but once you start talking with him he is very willing to talk and share. He has extensive experience with cave guiding (even for companies), and is very comfortable leading in the cave.
This company has helpful staff and answered over 30 of my emails before I booked my tours. I am very pleased with their service.
Some of the earlier reviews on TripAdviser had complaints about the guides not knowing what they are doing or being unfriendly etc, so I was a bit nervous booking, but we really won the lottery on this one.
Only one thing to keep in mind is for the private tours the guide will tailor the trip to your interests etc. If you want to stop for full meals, you can do so, but you will have less time to see things, so it's up to you. But they will stop if you want, just ask.
Best trip of my life, most beautiful place I've ever seen!!
Thank you Extreme Iceland!!! I will book through them again, highly recommend.
