    Mother Nature blessed us tonight!

    This was an excellent tour with super, friendly guides/driver and a sight to behold. It was worth spending the extra money to get a luxury coach too - more leg room and general comfort with less passengers. We were picked up from our location on time (BSi Bus Terminal). We stopped at one location, saw subtle evidence of the lights after about an hour and then got driven to another area close by where the magic unfolded. Spectacular "dancing" aurora! Hot chocolate, prosecco/water and a special Icelandic doughnut with smoked fish was also provided. The guide took pictures which she plans to email to everyone, so don't worry if you don't have a decent camera. Well worth it, the best tour so far!!

    My daughter got motion sickness and got ill on the bus twice. The driver was so kind and cleaned it up. :( We had champagne & 5 hrs of hunting for the Northern Lights and they didn’t show up. The driver & guide talked to us about Iceland & allowed us to try fish jerky & chocolates. Both delicious. We were told we could come back for free and we did but, didn’t get the Deluxe tour as before. No restroom on the tinier bus. A tinier bus but with a great female guide. Within 20 minutes we saw them and then stopped at a second stop and saw them again!!! We felt so lucky. They were amazing. Definitely worth it just know if you pay for the deluxe and don’t see the lights - you are not guaranteed another deluxe bus.

    Our guide was the best!

    "Mr. A" did everything he could to make this an enjoyable evening, from providing treats to bringing along a photographer who took time exposure pictures to show us the aurora activity that was hard to discern with the naked eye.
