I cannot recommend this tour, or this tour company, more. Jens was a terrific driver and wonderful guide, with exceptional knowledge of the history and mythology of the country. The itinerary took us to all the incredible sights and unique locations including many which you would not likely consider when planning a visit to Iceland.
The accommodation was varied, as is consistent with Europe, but in all cases was clean and comfortable. Special mention to Guesthouse Fjalladyrd, which provides a perfect setting for the Northern Lights (if you are so lucky).
The included meals were always good and perfectly showcased the region's produce. Just note, if you don't eat lamb or fish, make sure you inform Jens early, as the farm stays were able to make suitable arrangements.
The bus was exceptionally comfortable and allows Jens to take you places that bigger tours could not reach.
I had a wonderful time in Iceland and i cannot wait to return for summer.
A wonderful time to go to Iceland, and I highly recommend Fun Travel to it for you. Jens was a great driver, in whom we had every confidence especially in icy conditions. The accommodation was good, although a double room would have been nice, as we had twin beds the whole time, with the exception of the first night at Hotel Klettur. Although when we returned to this hotel at the completion of our tour, the room was very poor and not as spacious and was quite shabby. The other guesthouses and farm stays were varied and comfortable. The breakfasts and dinners were always good and the options for coffee stops and lunch was also adequate. We were able to stop at one liquor store, which helped our budget, as Iceland is an expensive place to visit. Jens gave great commentary and we never felt bored or overloaded with the information. The sights we saw were sensational. The inclusions on this tour made the trip even more enjoyable. It was a small group, with only our family of 4 (Couple and 2 adult offspring). Most tours wouldn't offer a tour unless the bus was full, but this was one of reasons we chose Fun Travel, we could plan ahead, knowing the that tour was going, despite the small number. We were lucky enough to see the Northern lights on 2 occasions. It got very cold and we had to walk on icy tracks. Consider buying crampons if you go in winter. They would have been a good investment for us, as we did a bit of slipping and sliding on some walks. All of which were well worth the struggle, as the scenery at the end of these tracks was breathtaking. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed this tour and I can't speak more highly of Jens and his commitment to his clients.
I have just returned from doing this tour and didn't want to come home! One of the best holidays I´ve ever had. Jens was wonderful - very knowledgeable, professional and an excellent driver. Enjoyed hearing about the myths and fables of the trolls and hidden people. The landscapes were amazing - we saw waterfalls (and more waterfalls!!), glaciers, ice, volcanoes, wildlife and much more!
This was a small group tour and so much more personal than one of the larger coach tours, and we were able to access areas that weren´t possible with a larger bus. Accommodation and meals were excellent.
A truly unforgettable holiday in a truly unforgettable country. Highly recommend this tour.
AMAZING! Best tour I have ever been on. Would recommend this tour and our tour guide Jens. Accommodations were much better than I expected. The sites were breathtaking, the people kind and welcoming. If you are planning a trip to Iceland Fun Travel is a must. You will not be disappointed.
It was a great experience. 8 Overnight stays were in lovely comfortable former farmhouses most of them recently renovated with nature views. Hikes were planned to give good landscape views. A few of them were steep or slippery (some level of fitness and warning ahead needed). Being 8 travellers in the van, felt like a private tour. Jens is a skilful driver and tells you about local life, habits & myths...
The trip I recently had the good fortune to take around Iceland was fabulous! Jens was a tremendously professional and extremely knowledgeable guide. Traveling with Jens and the group around Iceland was such a joy! There were so many wonderful sights- Volcanoes, Glaciers, waterfalls, geysers, black sand beaches, cliffs with puffins, arctic foxes, seals, and so much more! The farm stays each evening and food were phenomenal. This is a trip of a lifetime. Don´t miss it!
I took this tour with a friend and had a great experience. Jens, the owner of the company and our tour guide was excellent, providing new experiences everyday and sharing stories about Iceland. The group was small, only 8, and the van very comfortable. We saw so many amazing sites and loved Iceland. All our breakfasts and dinners were included as well. Highly recommended.
My husband and I just came back from a trip with Jens around Iceland. We had a small group - 6 people on the tour. (The bus would hold up to 12). The others on the tour really added to our experience! Because the group was small, we were able to see so much more. Jens was wonderful and knowledgeable about the area. (He can be quiet, but will answer any and all questions).
There was definitely some walking that you can do, but they´re short hikes and take you to beautiful views. You'll see glaciers, geysers, mud pots, waterfalls, lava formations and fields, and much more. Bring some sturdy, waterproof boots. Also, pack layers -waterproof short and long-sleeved clothing. Pack a waterproof jacket, hat, gloves, and water bottle! The water is amazing, it´s so clear and fresh. If you don't feel like taking a hike, there are always places to get nice views with shorter walks. Or, just rest a bit and take in the sights.
Breakfasts were buffets where we were staying, and dinners were delicious! During the day Jens would stop along the way in a town, and guide us to some delicious places to grab lunch. Our overnight stays were pretty amazing. They were lovely little places, with accommodations/dinners/and views that will really impress you. Jens took any worries away about renting a car, directions, tickets, meals, or reservations somewhere to stay overnight. This was a great way to get to see such a magical and beautiful place, and to spend some time with some really nice people. If you´re thinking that you´d like to go someplace really memorable, this is the trip and the guide for you!
My wife and i just completed a trip with Jens. We have done tours before and were disappointed with the "herding of the group". This tour was a very intimate experience. Jens was able to take us to may places that the big tours just could not even get to. We were very busy and saw a lot more than we had anticipated.
Jens also made sure that the evening accomodations were special. We stayed at several small places that catered to us very nicely. Several evenings we slept with views of glaciers and volcanoes right outside the window. We also were able to experience foods we hadn´t tried before. Jens made sure we got back and forth to the airport and was very attentive to all our needs. Best tour we've ever been on! Book with him!!
We had always wanted to visit Iceland but the thought of an impersonal bus tour always prevented us from doing it. Then I contact Jens owner of Fun Travel and he offers a small group tour that sounded amazing so we booked. The tour was more amazing than we could imagine. There were 6 people in total and all of us enjoyed each other´s company. Because of the small group Jens was able to take us to places the big buses cannot go.
The accommodations were in country farms and very cozy and friendly. The meals were traditional Icelandic meals that we really enjoyed. Jens also told us some Icelandic folklore tales that we enjoyed. He is also a very good driver as we travelled some small gravel roads. The tour is reasonably priced and worth every penny. I would highly recommend Fun Travel and I plan on doing the tour again in winter.
Jens has put together a fantastic tour which, being in a smaller vehicle, can go to places that the larger tour buses cannot access. Every day brought new sights and experiences and it was great being part of a small group. The accommodations were excellent: when touring we mostly stayed in farm-stay guesthouses, each one being both homely and unique. I can highly recommend Fun Travel to anyone wanting the total Iceland experience. If you love waterfalls this is certainly the tour for you!
This was a brilliant 10 day FUN tour with local man Jens as our great driver, as well as a terrific planner and co-ordinator. Jens knowledge of Iceland, both historic and geological, was fantastic and he was able to give our lovely group of six passengers just enough information so we were not overloaded. His reading of an Icelandic fairy tale was looked forward to each day.
Being in a small bus, Jens was able to take us to scenic places (and waterfalls) that the full size tourist buses could not go. Each lunch stop, Jens would check with our evening dinner venue, and would be able to tell us what the evening meal would be and what we could expect with the local catch of the day or regional speciality. Each day a local dish and never 2 days the same, wonderful!!
The accommodation chosen by Jens were all farm stays or small guesthouses, all very clean, cosy and comfortable. Breakfasts were also very well done with plenty to choose from and to cater for all tastes.
We were just blown away by the fabulous scenery of Iceland and seeing the Northern lights on one occasion was icing on the cake.
We could not fault Jens in any way, not that we were looking for faults, this was a fabulous tour, very highly recommended and would readily do it all again.
I loved this tour. It had the right balance of sightseeing and adventure. And our dinners were delicious, meticulously chosen by our guide, Jens
Our family of 4 travelled from Malaysia with our friends from Europe, also a family of 4. Jens did a great job in remotely coordinating our joint holiday, and all at very short notice as we only decided on Iceland as our destination 3 months before. A couple of other agencies declined our request outright, citing that we were way too late to find suitable accommodation.
We really appreciated Jens' attention to detail re timing, accommodation, pre-planned dinner menus and tourist information. He is a very good driver, and his 12-seater van was more than ample for the whole group.
All in all a remarkable holiday in Iceland - would highly recommend Fun Travel.
A little overdue. We were there in June (which was like 5 minutes ago)! We did the Golden Circle Tour ending with the Secret Lagoon. We were there June 11 and the weather was beautiful. Blue skies, green fields and baby animals everywhere. The waterfalls were perfect. Bjarni is very professional and added a special touch to the end of our tour! Sample some of the local liqueurs, delightful. I will recommend this Tour Group to anyone going over there! Well Done!
I had originally gave up on an Icelandic holiday as most tour prices are quite prohibitively high. Then I chanced upon Fun Travel on the internet.
My family of 4 went on the Iceland Complete tour with Jens in June 2018. We travelled with another family of 4 so the 12-seater van was very comfortable. Jens is a very safe driver and a thoughtful guide. He obliged when we requested to experience the hot baths at the less touristy Myvatn area, and to see the Icelandic horses in the stable.
We particularly appreciate Jens' curation of accomodations and dinner menus throughout the tour so that we get to experience the best of each region. Jens made the tour experience even more magical with his daily and appropriately timed fairy tales.
Overall the tour was very reasonably priced and I would recommend it to everyone considering Iceland. I look forward to seeing Iceland in winter with Fun Travel.
I have wanted to visit Iceland for a very long time but have not been able to find a reasonably priced tour until I found this tour. It is a small group tour. We had 8 people on our tour with the ages of the participants ranging from approximately 12 to 76 years old. The tour includes a centrally located hotel room the night of arrival and the night before departure. We arranged to go directly to the Blue Lagoon on the day of our arrival and then spent the rest of the first day exploring downtown Reykjavik. Breakfast and dinner was included on all days except the day of arrival and departure. If you have researched Iceland you will find that an average lunch will cost $25-$30 not including a drink / dessert/ additional sides. Having breakfast and dinner included saves you quite a bit of money. The tour left from the included hotel the morning after arrival and we stayed at different farms / guest houses / bed and breakfast establishments each night. The guest houses all had very good breakfasts. Only one facility had the typical bacon /eggs American breakfast. The others had a typical European breakfast with meat, cheese, bread, cereal, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, juices, etc. and the one that had an American breakfast also had a European breakfast. The rooms were clean, well maintained, and all of them had a toilet/shower ensuite. The pace of the tour was perfect. Being a small group made it easy for everyone to spend enough time enjoying the sights. We never felt pressured to rush so that the group did not leave without us. We saw geysers, waterfalls, black sand beaches, glaciers, the included glacier lagoon boat ride, seals, beautiful rock formations, an arctic fox, hot springs, mud bubbling up from the ground, sheep, Icelandic horses, quaint towns, etc. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tour and I would love to do it again.
