We had a fabulous trip. Our tour guide Tanya is superb. Her knowledge and history of sites along the way and at our destination was excellent. Two thumbs up for Tanya and our bus driver Bart.

Ildy our tour guide was the best from the start to the finish. What a fun knowledgeable guide. She took care of each and everyone of us. You will be so lucky if you tour with her. EF Tours is lucky to have a person of her quality!

Trip of our lifetime

From the time we got off the plane to the time we left, we had an absolutely fabulous time. Our guide and driver were absolutely the best on the island, in my opinion. We couldn’t have a better time.

I have been thinking of going to Iceland for quite a while and finally!! EF Go Ahead Tours took care of all my desires. This trip was awesome from my initial deposit to the finish! This country was amazing, yet so different than any I’ve visited before. Don’t miss this trip!!
Iceland: The Golden Circle & Ring Road
A Most Amazing Tour
10/16/21 by 7th-time traveler Linda
I can barely put into words how wonderful this trip was... From touchdown in Reykjavik, to the Golden Circle and the Black Beaches of the South Coast then on to The Blue Lagoon, everything was stunningly beautiful. This may be my favorite tour with Go Ahead.
Iceland: Reykjavik & the Northern Lights
03/30/2018 by First-time traveler Sally B.
I loved our experience when we went to Iceland. Everything about our trip was fabulous; no complaints. If you are planning on a trip, this trip was so far the best trip ever I have been on.

waterfalls, glaciers and 1 lane bridges

Our one regret about our recent trip to Iceland is that it only lasted 10 days. There is so much to see and learn about this fascinating country we would have gladly stayed longer. Anyone who gets off a plane in Reykjavik and spends a few days has not really visited Iceland; it is so much more.
