TripAdvisor reviews

Great agency! We booked a few different excursions through Hey Iceland. If I could do it again, I would book one of their driving tours. The are very easy to work with and have many options. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the response time was incredible. If you are not sure where to start in planning your trip to Iceland, start with Hey Iceland.
