TripAdvisor reviews

Fantastic Trip - Highly Recommend. My family and I did the 10 day vacation with Hey Iceland, and I would highly recommend it to anyone. The entire trip was incredibly well-planned and convenient, and all the lodgings were comfortable and fun. Hey Iceland booked us a shuttle from the airport when we arrived and took care of the rental car and all the lodgings during the rest of our stay. The morning that our trip began, someone arrived promptly from the rental car agency to pick us up and get us started. The tablet that they provide with a suggested itinerary was very helpful for directions and as a framework for us to base our trip around, but we still had the flexibility to add or remove destinations. Our vacation wouldn't have been as fantastic or easy without their involvement.
