Very professional tour operator. Very punctual. Also if you are unlike (like me) who wasn't able to see light, they offer you service coupons that you can redeem anytime during the same year for another northern light tour.

This can be a long night but it’s absolutely worth it! The small cabin offers decent hot drinks and some shelter from the cold. It is VERY cold and windy so dress up super warm! We got lucky with an amazing show too!

Laters evening trip to try and see the lights. Great guides. The whole thing was fun. Just go. You’ll have fun even if the lights don’t appear. More if they do!

Guide, Darren, knowledgeable and friendly. Not just someone who does his job. He actually took the time to make conversation. Hopefully if we do the Golden Circle tour on Tuesday he can be our guide. We got a 9 out of 10 on the Northern...More

The service itself was really good - the bus was comfortable, the tour guide was very informative (on both attempts to see the lights) and the price was certainly acceptable. The bus was left accessible during the stop so that you could have a break...More

Whilst the trip was good it was dissapointing that we didn't see the lights. The company make no guarantees obviously and we were able to re-book but again despite going to a different location were out of luck. Whole trip took 3 hours with pick...More

My review is not a reflection on Reykjavik Excursions - they were very professional and everything about the tour was well organised etc. Looking back I wouldn't book a tour to try and see the lights again - I just wasn't too bothered whether we'd...More

I would most definitely recommend this trip it was amazing. It was something I wanted to do for the longest time and can finally tick it off my bucket list. Although I couldn’t see the northern lights clearly with the naked eye. I could see...More

Hi, it’s a night tour and they start grabbing people around 8-9pm depends on the capacity of people booked. Because the ride takes about 45mins bus ride then all depends on the season of the lights how long you will stay out... More
