The tour guides are really good, pointing out where to look, you need a good camera as an iPhone doesn't pick the lights up! The driver also stopped on the way back so we could see a great view on the lights!

It was too cloudy. Could not see the lights. Was told tickets was good for two years if you don't see the lights you just have to rebook. your name is in the system. Nice ride out, could see the John Lennon light from Videy Island.
We had an excellent guide. We didn't get to see the lights on this tour but are rebooking for another date. Our hotel informed us that you never have to worry about the tours filling up when trying to rebook, because they just add more buses and guides, which is a huge relief to my partner and me.
The tour was great! It was very organized and the guide was knowledgeable and friendly!
AMAZING TOUR. A must when in iceland. Went out first night unfortunately only seen Ñorthern lights faintly. Was told we could go again the following night free of charge. Glad we did had the most amazing display. Female tour guide arga ? Was amazing. Very knowledgeable. Loved this tour. Well don
Great tour guide Anna and we luckily got to see the Aurora borealis.
Seeing the Northern Lights is not a given. I would suggest booking this tour for the first night and then keep trying on other nights if you don't see the lights. At 4pm each day, you'll find out if the tour is going that day. If the tour does go out and you don't see anything, you can go another night for free. If you don't see anything while you're there, the ticket is good for two years.

tour was fine. We did get to see the northern lights. My only problem with all the tours is the tour guides. None of them had a good handle on the English language. In most of their sentences, there long pauses trying to find the words necessary. I believe a tour guide must be able to speak clearly , making the tour much more enjoyable.
We were picked up from our hotel and the tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. She showed us the best place to see the lights and what a show it was too! We can't thank you enough for making our trip perfect. My fiance proposed on this trip and it was magical. Thank you!
Excellent tour and professional guide!!!!! I should have joined one more day. :)
We went on a Wednesday night and the weather was overcast and we were not able to see the lights. They offered to let us go again on any other night we wanted until we saw the lights. So, we ventured out again on Thursday night to a different location by the lighthouse near the village of Gardur and we saw the lights dancing across the night sky. They were spectacular to see in person! The tour operaters were kind and informative and just as happy to see the northern lights as we were. A great experience!
It took two attempts, But well worth every minute. Try to book the excursion on your first full day in Iceland.
We had the chance to see northern lights (beginning of October) !! :) :)
It was great. At the beginning, we had to wait 2 hours before some lights appear. We took some hot chocolate to warm up !
This is something that I have wanted to do for years now and I can finally say that I got to see the northern lights. It is and awe inspiring moment when you get to see them. Our guide and the whole trip was great
Went on this twice as the first time it was cloudy, they did show for a very brief time, the second time and our last night there was a beautiful clear evening but they did not appear. good thing about this tour is that you can go as many times as you want in two years until you see them without having to pay each time.

the best thing I did on a 6 week Europe holiday. tour group was huge over 800, but were transported to a very remote area and move people staying in the buses. fantastic views of the lights, great photographic advise given by our bus leader. Despite the massive numbers on the tour, everything went on time and smoothly. couldn't praise the team more. will definatelly do this tour again.
True to its word, we were EASILY on for a second opportunity when the trip was determined to fall short of satisfaction for the client. We had good drivers on both occasions, enthusiastic, informative and patient guides on both outings and the Northern Lights did not disappoint. The only problem was that I was not sufficiently prepared on photo taking, so I was disappointed more with myself than with anything that was offered by viator. Thank you for great service and a wonderful experience. The Northern Lights show was spectacular!
Take very warm, waterproof clothing and be prepared to hang around in the cold, but truly unbelievable and worth every penny when you see the lights. Take a tripod for the pictures... amazing
Excellent experience! We were lucky enough to see the Lights very early on and got a second, even better showing at the parliament field. Obviously, not guaranteed to get a showing but you can't go to Iceland and not do this trip
