Subject: Query From Website

I just wanted to send a belated thanks to one of your bus drivers, Ollie (?). During my honeymoon in September, we took the northern lights tour, and he was very dedicated to finding a place for us to see them. We stopped once for a long time but could not see them due to clouds. Everyone had given up and we were on our way back when he found a better spot. Because of him, we were able to get some once-in-a-lifetime photos. And it was the only day on our honeymoon that we could spare to see them. So thank you for helping to make it a special trip!

Hi there,
we have just returned from a trip with yourselves and Discover The World.
Our tour guide was John Spencer and I wanted to thank him for everything and say that we had an amazing time. We seen the most amazing Northern Lights last night on your tour and as our last night in Iceland it was brilliant. Well worth the wait to see them.
Thank you again to John.
Take care.
Karen from Scotland.

Last Friday my husband and I went on your South Coast & Waterfalls excursion AH34.
We just wanted to say what a lovely time we had.
The guide, Silke, was excellent - so knowledgeable, helpful and friendly.The places we visited were stunning and we would thoroughly recommend this trip. This was our third trip to Iceland and we plan to return. Next time we're hoping we'll be able to visit the Vestmannaeyjar islands (we were unable to this time due to problems with the new harbour).
Once again, thank you for such a wonderful trip and would you please pass on our thanks to our wonderful guide.
Kind regards,
Mrs Helen Evans

Dear Otto,
on behalf of the festival I would like to thank you for the cooperation, your patience and the kind assistance. You and your team supported RIFF 2010 in various ways, and all our international guests enjoyed their stay very much.

Without the support from Iceland Excursion we wouldn't have been able to provide so many attractive tours.
Therefore I would like to say THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

With kind regards,

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen!

Now that my mom Sylvia Vandre, the winner of the Iceland roadshow in Berlin in 2009, and I are back in Germany, we would like to thank you so much for that fantastic time we had! We absolutely enjoyed the incredible nature of Iceland! We were able to see during of course the hours in the blue lagoon!
Once again thank you a lot for making that possible for us!

We will definitely recommend a trip to Iceland with your agencies and hope to see Iceland again!!!

Ämne: Island

Hemkommen efter islandsresan "Land o Saga" 15-19 aug. vill vi bara meddela, att vi hade en synnerligen bra guide/chaufför! Så kunnig, påläst om allt, trevlig och hjälpsam! Vad vi inte fick  höra om Islands historia, natur, sevärda platser och kultur, skrönor och verkliga personer är nog svårt att komma på! Guiden heter Solveig (Solla) - henne ska ni vara rädda om!  Enda lilla anmärkningen på resans upplägg  är, att man gärna hade velat stanna litet längre vid tex Thingvellir och Abarjarsafn, det sistnämnda  i synnerhet. Vi hade gärna startat litet tidigare på dagen, om det hade bidragit till litet längre uppehåll.Muséet i Borgarnes "Settlement Center" var en positiv upplevelse.
Att dessutom mvh

I had the opportunity to attend some your trips while i was travelling in Iceland. I went on the Snæfellness and the Glacial Wonders trip. I had a wonderful vacation in Iceland and I really enjoyed the excursions.

I wasn't lucky with the weather, it was very foggy and rainy. In spite of that, the guide Jon managed to make the trip  to Snæfellsnes interesting. He had a great knowledge about Iceland, and an outstanding  warm and kind personality.  

I would also like to thank the wonderful crew at "Glacier guides" for giving me a memorable tour on the glacier.
Thank you very much!

Good Evening Iceland Excursions!

I like to send a great Thank You! To the bus driver/guide Bjarni on the tour to Jökulsarlon the 23 of July. This man was fantastic.
It didn't feel at all as a 14 hour tour! The mix he told me during this excursion was a good blend of Icelands history, politics, nature,
wildlife and points of interest. This made the journey very pleasant. I'm glad I wrote down memos and notes during this tour otherwise most of my photos
had been labeled "somewhere in Iceland".
I hope I have the possibility to come back sometime in December or January, love to see what you can offer me in the winter.
Thank you all!

Dear Sirs

My wife and i returned on Friday to the UK after spending 6 days in Reykjavik during our visit we took advantage of 2 of your tours, The Golden Circle and The Saga Trail. We also used your services to visit The Blue Lagoon, all three were booked on line.

We would like to place on record our total enjoyment of you tours and the brilliant staff at your office, also the extreme courtesy and great knowledge shown by the tour guides and drivers.

It is hoped that we can return next year in anticipation of seeing the Northern Lights.

One again thank you to all your staff for making our vacation so memorable.

Dear Sara Kristin,

Maybe you remember that I contacted Grayline Island (see enclosed e-mail) as I had plans to travel to Iceland beginning of June. In the end I came to Reykjavik last days of June and the beginning of July. I really enjoyed my stay, I’m really happy that I have visited Reykjavik, very interesting and I have had great excursions with the Grayline, thank you for that.

Hello there,
I have just returned from a fabulous trip to Iceland of which one day was spent on the Jokulsarlon tour you organize.  We had Silka as our guide and she was brilliant.  We couldn't have asked for a better guide or a better way to spend a long day!  The day was informative and we saw many spectacular sites.

Subject: about my reservation

Dear Sir/Madam
I'm writing to ask my pick up and drop off point.
I've just booked your tour "AH35 South Coast & Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon".
Pick up point is your office, Hafnarstraeti 20, 101 Reykjavík. That's fine for me. But if possible, I want to change the drop off point to "Pávi Guesthouse". Is that ok?
Actually, I used your tour in May. Tours were Whale watching & Golden Circle, View of the Volcano. What an exciting and fabulous tours! Thanks indeed. This time I hope I can see spectacle scenery.

I'm looking forward to going to Iceland and seeing your guides.

Good morning,

All too often, letters and e-mails are sent due to displeasure with service or goods received. That is definitely not the case here. I had scheduled three (3) tours with a competitor. The competitor failed to pick me up for a scheduled, Monday morning, tour. Needless to say that this left me with great frustration at the beginning of a vacation. I then went to your office and was greeted by Sunnefa Burgess. She was simply amazing. Not only did she ensure that 3 tours were booked through Iceland Excursions, she went over and above to make sure that the previous tours were properly credited accordingly. Sunnefa deserves much credit for making my week in Reykjavik one that I will never forget.

Rest assured that I will be promoting Reykjavik and Iceland as a whole and especially Iceland Excursions. Iceland is a beautiful country filled with very caring and wonderful people. I had the good fortune to meet many.

Thank you so much for the past week and especially having talented and caring people like Sunnefa work with all people who walk through the front door. If you need any additional information, please feel free to contact me at your convenience. Until then, I remain

Best regards,

Thank you to the guides and the bus drivers that took us safely on two tours on June 1 and 3rd.  we took the Golden Circle and Reykjanes Peninsula as well as AH35 South Coast and Jokulsarion.  Both of the tours were amazing and the guides and drivers were wonderful.  Also we had a tour with John in the morning before the Golden Circle whcih was also great and interesting countryside.  He taught us a lot about the Reykjanes and  the Blue Lagoon.

We loved Iceland and certainly would like to come back one day. We highly recommend Grayline Tours.

Best of luck for a great tourist season.

Good Evening,

I have been in Reykjavik for the past 6 days on vacation and went on 4 of your tours: Whale Watching, Golden Circle Classic, Silver Circle, and South Coast/Thorsmork.

My wife and I would like to personally thank one of your tour guides for his outstanding services.  We had Matthias as a tour guide on the Silver Circle on Tuesday June 15 and on the South Coast on Friday June 18.  He was very excellent and he explained a lot of interesting things about Iceland along the way.  I feel that I got to experience Iceland with someone with an absolutely large amount of knowledge while at the same time dealing with someone who was polite, focused on customer experience and very socialiable.  Thank you very much to your company and especially to Matthias for making our vacation extra special.

Thank you,

Dear Sir,
            we have just returned home after our first trip to Iceland during which we took part in one of your excursions. Last Tuesday evening we went around the golden circle and our driver/guide was a lady called Lena who was brilliant. Her knowledge of Icelandic history, literature and geology amongst other subjects was superb as were the personal anecdotes she told us about recent earthquakes and volcanic erruptions. Her commentary was worth the price of the tour alone. Please would you pass on our thanks again. However, I have one last question I hope she might be able to answer. In Halldor Laxness' book Independent People was the character of Bjartur based on a real person?
       Thank you for an exceptional evening once again.

Dear Sir, Madame,the last three days we have done three tours with your company (volcano, blue lagoon and golden circle tour). We just want to say THANK YOU. Everything was very well arranged by you: very professional and interesting guides, sharp pick up from the Foss hotel baron, tours well arranged. Thank you for all this and making our trip to Iceland a one we will never forget. We will certainly visit again as there is much more to see and certainly book with Gray Line again on our next trip. Good luck with your activities and keep doing what you are doing!

I visited Iceland with my family just over a week ago and took three tours with your company, the most memorable being the visit to the volcano. We thoroughly enjoyed each of the tours and found the staff really friendly providing lots of interesting information both about the areas we visited but also on Iceland in general in the wake of the economic crisis and developing volcanic action. I've edited the video and photography footage I made into a short film which is now on youtube so please check it out and feel free to pass the link on to anyone else -

Who'd have guessed that the volcano would develop so quickly after our visit but for us this makes the trip all the more exciting.

To Whom It Concerns,
I would like to sincerely thank you for the efforts you went to ensure that our group made the tour last Wednesday. We had 4 children from our school in Ireland and when asked what the best part of Iceland was, they said it was the Geyser exploding into the air!
It was a thoroughly enjoyable trip and we will all be left with wonderful memories of your spectacular country.
I will have no problem recommending your company to anyone travelling to Iceland.
