Guest Review

"Hi to everyone at All Iceland I just wanted to write and thank you for an excellent service and a wonderful and most amazing holiday. I shall be writing on tripadvisor my comments but safe to say - everything was wonderful ! We had a great time - got to see the Northern Lights and enjoyed wonderful food and great knowledge. It most definitely WAS 'Iceland in Style' and I cannot express how great the experience was. We are turning into holiday snobs in our old age - but also due to the fact that we manage to come across excellent companies such as yourselves ! Watching the masses from our lovely minibus and exclusive super jeep - no more coach tours - thank god !..... Thank you again Claire & Guy"
