Private vs. Tailor-Made Tours in Iceland: Which is Right for You?

Private vs. Tailor-Made Tours in Iceland: Which is Right for You?

So, on the one hand, er have private tours, and on the other we have tailor-made tours. Before we can start exploring how equally awesome they both are, and which might be best for you, we need to establish what the difference between them is. Here it is, plain and simple: 

Private tours: the tours already exist as part of our standard offering, and you choose the one that is best for you. Private tours mean that the focus is on you, and we can really get off the beaten track and out to those hidden gems. Believe us, iceland is riddled with them!

Tailor made: this is where we build a tour for you based on your needs.  This is perfect if you don’t see exactly what you are looking for. We will create a unique itinerary to suit your individual needs.  

A Fine But Important Line

There is a fine line between the two. A private tour becomes a tailor-made tour as soon as you start to customise it in some way. So you like the look of our Golden Circle tour, but you want to go Snorkelling. If that is the case, you have a word with us, and we will do a custom itinerary for you. Simple as that. 

What if you want to go out to the East of Iceland for an extra two days? No problem!

What about something really out, like sleeping the nigh inside a glacier?! Talk to us, and awe will make it happen!

Any way you like!

Iceland Rovers mostly travel by Super Jeep, with transfer flights to far-flung regions like the Eastfjords. But what if you want a helicopter ride over the highlands?  Or you want to travel by plane somewhere that you don't see on offer: we can charter one! 

Rovers All the Way!

In sum, and to answer the initial query, private tour will be great if you like what you and don't feel that there is anything more to add. A private tour will be better for you if you want to add that little touch of something extra to your trip.

Iceland Rovers prides itself on being able to cater to, meet and exceed the needs and desires of our clients. We pretty much have everything covered, and more. And that is not an exaggeration. 

Does anything in here tickle your fancy? All you have to do is get in touch with us and somebody will be happy to discuss any and all the details of a potential future trip.
