          Perfect tour of the sights from Akureyri Port.
          This was the best and most flawless booking experience I have had with Viator booking. The guide was at the port and in the location he described. We saw so much on this tour and the guide was wonderful at describing the all the sights and geology along the way. I highly recommend this company if you are on a cruise that stops in Akureyri. The day was so much better than what we expected, so thank you Imagine Iceland Travel.

          Very well informed guide and bus driver. They showed concern for the group and made sure all went well. The tour was exactly as described!

          Great day
          Another great day thanks to Viator. The scenery was wonderful and all the stops were interesting. Iceland does have a problem though with the amount of tourists it receives and the lack of washroom facilities to accommodate them. There were long lineups at each stop.

          Fantastic Tour
          I booked this tour with FAB and was nervous when I check my reservation to find out that FAB Tours no longer existed. I immediately called the number for FAB, but got Iceland Guided tours. I was informed that Iceland Guided tours would be the tour company to pick me up at the port when my cruise ship arrived. I was still nervous about the arrangement, but as soon I got off the ship there was a guy with a sign for Iceland Guided tours waiting for us. It turned out that we were the only ones who booked the tour, so it became a private tour. Our guide was Jonathan. He did a fantastic job driving us to all the sights and the Nature Baths. I could't ask for a better tour or guide. I was impressed with Iceland Guided Tours.

          Wonderful experience
          Simply a great and enjoyable tour, and our guide Daniel was exceptional. Funny, friendly, and entertaining as well as informative which was all a bonus on top of the spectacular scenery all along the way. Not only were we treated to many great photo opportunities, but we also learned so much about Iceland in general from Daniel -- its people and their history, their values, and their way of life.

          Not great for me
          The guide was ok the tour was ok but 7 adults (inc guide) in one Jeep was not ok two in the back was fine one in the front was fine three in the middle was very uncomfortable The largest member of the group was in the middle and his partner was probably not bothered being scrunched as it was their honeymoon. It was not good for me though by the end of the tour I was aching all over. I would have given two stars based on my experience but I appreciate that for those with more room at the front or back it would not have been as bad.

          Cruise Day Tour
          Was the favourite tour of all our time cruising with Norwegian Prima. We booked all our tours privately, price difference to those sold on the cruise was ridiculous. Imagine Iceland Travel met us at the port where the cruise docked. We had Norbert for our bus driver and guide for the day. They waited a while at the dock for a couple booked that didn’t show, however despite the delayed start we had a massive day with lots of extra little stops added in. Norbert was full of local information and fabulous stories of history in all the areas we visited. Norbert phoned ahead to make sure those who wanted to could go into the Nature Baths, we simply paid the extra on arrival. Constantly checked with all of us on the tour time needed to be back on the cruise ship making sure we were back well & truly before departure times, while still adding extra stops so we got the most value for our tour. Goðafoss waterfall Lake Mytvan Hot Springs Dimmuborgir - home of the Yule Lads Underground Hot Springs (used in filming of Game of Thrones Tectonic Plates. Mývatn Nature Baths Norbert also took time at each spot to take photos for all those attending. Was a fabulous day!

          Non talkative guide and windows foggy
          The guide was not informative, and the van window was permanently foggy because moisture was trapped between window panes. The waterfall was nice and the baths were lovely.

          Incredible Iceland
          This trip was amazing! So many beautiful sites! I know the locals probably did not like the recent snow storm but for us with all the snow peaked mountains it made it all that much more spectacular! Norbert was exceptional and a great guide - 5 stars!

          Simply excellent
          Booked this tour for our final full day in Akureyri, and we were so glad we did. Prompt pick up from our hotel, in a very comfortable mini bus, a nice small group of seven people. Our guide, whose name I can't remember (apologies,) was very welcoming and informative telling us that due to the terrible weather conditions some of our stops may not be possible. What lay ahead for just was an excellent day with breathtaking scenery, the spectacular Godafoss, the imposing Dimmuborgir and plenty of other interesting places. Our guide did get us to all the places, which is pretty incredible as some parts of the day he was driving in almost total white out. Our final stop was a relaxing dip in the Lake Myvatn nature baths, it's an extra cost, but well worth it. This is a great day out, well worth the money. Special shout out to our guide, who was knowledgeable, funny and engaging, and who got us there and back in one piece, no mean feat in, at times dreadful driving conditions.

          Excellent Tour for experiencing the beauty of Iceland.
          Really enjoyed this fantastic day out on a very cold day. We were picked up from our hotel; before we departed, our guide, Daniel, made sure everyone on the trip was suitably dressed and prepared for the weather conditions. We visited 2 stunning waterfalls and saw some amazing volcanic and glacial landscapes. We were really well looked after on this tour, making stops to purchase drinks and snacks and were provided with crampons for the snowiest path to see Dettifoss There was time for a relaxing dip in the nature baths at lake myvatn too. Although the weather conditions limited the places we could reach even in the 4x4, we felt safe, comfortable and very entertained on this tour. Highly recommend this tour as a great way to go and experience the beauty of Iceland.

          Highly recommendable
          Armann our guide during this trip was awesome! He is a real expert in getting the best pictures of the Northern Light. The knowledge that he shared with us was really interesting and it was fascinating listening to him. He made a fantastic picture with his camera which captured the Nothern Light better than our cameras and sent us the pictures afterwards as a memory of a fabulous trip! Highly recommendable!

          A Magical Day and a main reason to visit Iceland
          This was one of the main areas I wanted to see in Iceland and it did not disappoint. One amazing sight after another. Feels like you are in another world. Lake Myvatn was so clean and clear we drank from it. The Falls were magnificent. Had a nice authentic lunch at the visitor center area. Geothermal features so interesting. This is part of why one visits Iceland.

          Excellent trip with great guide
          We booked a Northern Lights tour with the geo thermal spa through Imagine Iceland Travel. We were picked up from the apartments by Armann who was a very attentive and professional guide. My husband and I were very fortunate as we were the only clients for the trip so we had the luxury of travelling in Armann’s new vehicle. The geo thermal spa was excellent with a view over the sea. During the tour we stopped several times to monitor the lights and we had the pleasure of seeing the beautiful display in remote dark area. Local knowledge is a wonderful thing! We would recommend this trip with Imagine Iceland Travel.

          Nature at her best!
          We had booked this tour and was contacted by the boss the day before as the weather was too bad to go out. We were given two options full refund or rebook. We chose to rebook but would have to reduce the tour again as the weather wouldn’t allow access to certain areas. We went the following day and it was amazing our guide Allam (sorry if it’s spelt wrong) was very knowledgeable and we laughed all day. There was only the four of us on the tour and it was more like a private tour. The scenery in Iceland is spectacular and I would recommend seeing as much as you can.

        What a superb tour this was with the excellent Armann as our guide: so knowledgeable and entertaining; passionate about Northern Iceland, his enthusiasm was infectious. We were a small group of like-minded people; day itself was full of amazing scenery – from the Dimmuborgir Lava field to the geothermal area plus three stunning waterfalls – and lots more yet you never felt rushed. Loved bathing in the Myvatn hot springs, peaceful and less commercialised than the Blue Lagoon. Really recommend Imagine Iceland Travel, such friendly and professional staff with immediate responses to my emails. Cannot wait to go back and do it all over again!

        Daniel ensured that this trip was way above what I expected. He promptly replied to my messages when I booked in Australia. Nothing was too much for him.
        The itinerary was fabulous. The 2 waterfalls were stunning as was the view over Lake Myvatn. Daniel provided home made rye bread as a snack which was very welcome and yummy. The stop at Jardhitabad was divine. We could have stayed longer bathing in this beautiful Lagoon but Daniel assured us it would be bad for our health. The walk through Myndun
        Dimmuborga was breathtaking. Nature truly is beautiful.
        Make sure you wear warm clothing and be prepared to walk.
