My wife loves to ski and her fondness to ice drew us to Iceland this summer. But I have never thanked her much than this time for taking and convincing me on the Iceland tour this time. It was she who had directed us to Leisure to get some excellent itineraries. One week travel itinerary to Iceland was the best thing I had ever seen. Leisure also provided us with travel agents who just made our day while touring. We had a fantastic trip thanks to this travel agency who went above and beyond to ensure our happiness.  It was tough to plan a family outing because of the age and gender gaps but our travel agent was an expert in this. Our itinerary was well planned and all activities and lodging were just as planned.  Our trip was a combination of private tours and joining in on group tours.  These were selected by our travel agent based on our interests and all were amazing. 

We met 3 guides from our travel agency.  All were extremely personable, knowledgeable and flexible. You could tell that they genuinely cared about the well-being of their guests.  They knew my son had a particular interest in soccer so they arranged a few local activities for him.  Likewise, there was a major cultural event in Reykjavik and our travel agency emailed us the schedule of activities so that we could schedule our free day around them. We enjoyed all the activities but each of us had our own favorite.  My son loved all the waterfalls.  My mom's favorite activity was dog sledding.  I liked the challenge of ice hiking up the glacier.  For me, the most enjoyable part was learning about Iceland and seeing new sights with my family.  The intimate tour, which often was just the three of us with a guide, allowed us to truly experience the country together.
