    The tour director was professional, respectful, organized, knowledgeable, and had a great sense of humor. The accommodations were sometimes a bit different that what I have at home but I could adapt. An example was small size of a couple of the bathrooms in our hotel rooms. I liked that the tour inclusions were diverse including museums, time spent outside in nature, stories and information shared with us during bus transportation between various sites, and some free time to do some shopping, resting, or choosing our own other activities.

    Arrangements were well-planned and thought through carefully. Leadership was flexible when flexibility was needed. I enjoyed so many aspects of the trip — the museums, boat trips, national parks, the knowledgeable guides, the thermal pools and city walks. I am a lifelong learner and this trip provided the opportunities I needed to grow. I came home with Covid, which wasn’t a bonus I had hoped for, but it’s a risk of living an active life nowadays. I recovered quickly.

    Probably the best vacation trip I've ever had. Iceland is a super place to visit. Our Collette Tour was excellent. Our Tour Manager, Luciana Belviso was super and provided us with on-going information about the area we were traveling through, including information about the history and geology of the area as well. Enjoyed her narrations during our trips very much. Our driver, Arnar was excellent as well. Felt like we were in very good hands with his driving capabilities. Appreciated his insights during the trip, including his tips about the Icelandic language as well. We had a super time. My most memorable experiences were our visits to the glacier in the higher lands and the black diamond beach as well as the area with the tectonic plates division. I think everyone of the areas we visited were not only very beautiful and excellent experiences. Thanks Collette Tours and Luciana and Arnar for a super trip.

    I was grateful for our bus driver because she was a native Icelander and could answer questions about life in Iceland. Our tour manager was Italian and had only been in the country 1 1/2 years. I would have valued being offered a map or a phone app right at the start that helped identify where we were. Names were very confusing. I realize I am a map person but the names are long and difficult to pronounce. The bus driver was able to answer questions about family life, education, religion etc. She converted wind speeds from Celsius to Fahrenheit for us one afternoon when we were confined to the hotel due to high winds. Weather is unpredictable. Can you have a short program or something when weather changes tour destination plans? Destinations are far apart and it is hard to pivot to something else. Hotels were fine. I appreciated being downtown in Reykjavik for ease in walking and shopping.

    The poor airline performance (cancelled flight, not accommodations and having to spend the night in the airport, seats in next flight were not together, lost luggage upon arrival) colored the tour and caused a loss in a day on the tour. The first two of the three hotels were good. The third was poor and had food to match.

    We chose this tour as it seemed to include a nice balance of outdoor physical activities, history and culture, and unique experiences. We were so right...the pacing of the activities was also good. No long hours spent on the coach in necessary transit from one location to the next...instead such transits were built around activities on the way from place to place. Also enjoyed the opportunity to spend more than one night in the same hotel... The tour included much more than we expected, including a chance to "bond" with our fellow travelers...the smaller group was great.

    One problem is the inclusion of mobility challenged participants on a tour that requires mobility and balance. Makes it difficult for your manager and those who can move without assistance. I think its a curse of the industry.

    Their Web site was good and warned us of the weather. I followed their recommendations in cloths and was very happy I did. We had lots of rain and strong winds and so happy we took appropriate cloths, water proof rain pants and heavy coat! Diamond Beach was my favorite experience, gorgeous place!

    Visiting Iceland was a once in a lifetime experience! The scenery was stunning, people were friendly, and almost everyone spoke English. Each day outdid the previous one! The boat ride on the glacial Lagoon was fantastic. A visit to the Blue Lagoon is a must!

    The tour covered enough points of interest to fill up each day without rushing through each stop giving enough time to appreciate each point of interest. Enough time was provided at the end of each day to enjoy a meal and interact with other tour members.

    Our tour guide was very good. However she had to pick up from the airport and no one was available at the hotel where we were taken regarding the tour until she returned about 1 1/2 hours later. There was only 1 optional experience and it was our least favourite activity.
