About NSAI.Knowing how popular Iceland is as a destination and that there were four of us traveling, I thought that having assistance in setting up our tour from Nordic Visitor would be beneficial.
It proved to be the best decision. She provided a great map with route, hotels and attractions marked and color-coded. She highlighted some special places for lobster, ice cream and pool with a view. Thanks to Nordic visitor and especially Helga for a great trip. It was also very good value and I believe cheaper than had we tried to organise the same thing on our own.
The accommodation all over Iceland was really excellent and some would be highlights or favorites we'll remember a long time Honestly felt nothing was left out and the trip couldn't have gone any better and all 6 of us that were on this are in full agreement on that.
I cant' even express how easy it was to work with your company and how everything was thought out and delivered to us. Even if we didn't know we were going to need it. We thought that Sofia's organisational skills were excellent.
She was professional, friendly and organised some excellent hotels - in terms of location and helpfulness of staff. This was a fantastic holiday. A real adventure that we both thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you for making this possible. The hotels were great, especially the one in Copenhagen and Flam. Everything was so well organized an thought through I. We had enough time in each of the places we visited as well. The night in Flam was perfect timing to slow down the trip and relax a little.

Excellent experience, timely communication. Very easy and low maintenance which is exactly what I want when booking with an agency. We had an amazing experience.Local meat soup, meat products and charr are great. Keep in mind that smoked means really smoked, almost like chewing on a burning stick. Everything worth a try though. Local milk products are flavorful and awesome!. There are many things to see in Iceland and we wish we would spend more time there.
We needed at least couple more days to really enjoy places that we loved. The scenery changes every 100 ft and all of it is beautiful. Iceland is very photogenic!. Renting 4x4 is a good idea, it gets you places easier. The roads are not really what you are used for in the USA. Next to waterfalls it feels like heavy rain. Can get really windy and it blows right through you. All hotels had obviously been well researched and were excellent.
Hotel locations very good. This was an excellent experience and a good way to see the countries visited. If we did it again we would spend additional time in places e. The help and professional manner in which Helena conducted our business was greatly appreciated. All her arrangements proceeded perfectly and we had no concerns or worries during the course of our holiday.
If there were errors or need for clarification, she assisted in a friendly and timely manner. She was easy to reach and connect with and this made our planning from such a distance that much easier.
This was such a special holiday for my family and I, especially my father. We very much enjoyed your beautiful country. Thank you so much Nordic Visitor!. To begin with, Hilmar was extremely helpful in answering questions that I had, via email, before the trip. There were no "surprises" or details left out.

He took into consideration, when booking the accommodations, my mobility concerns. The staff of each of the hotels were friendly and helpful, as was the rental car agent.
The breakfasts included in the package exceeded our expectations. Nordic Visitor made our stop-over in Iceland such a positive and memorable experience. The detail and clarity of your website, your printed materials and the assistance of your agent were top-notch and unparalleled.
We met other tourists on the trip that struggled with their tours and travel issues, and we were so very thankful that we had selected Nordic Visitor.
We both work in a very professional environment where we travel a lot all over the world. The organization of this trip was overall excellent with great attention to detail and absolute customer mindset, e. We were extremely grateful that everything worked very smoothly, without us getting stressed out with organizing, finding things, fixing things, etc. High professionalism and very kind manner talking to us, regardless who picked up the phone and fixed our two requests during the trip.
Special thanks to Fjola for all, she did a great job. Each region we visited was different and each had its own charm and beauty. When we returned to Canada we recommended Iceland as a place to visit, and to contact Nordic Visitor because they offer outstanding service.Your browser isn't supported It looks like you're using an old web browser.
