      About this trip

      A slower-paced, small group tour through Iceland… There’s so much to do and see in Iceland that it’s tough to fit it all in one trip. Lots of fast-paced tours cram everything into 5 short days but we take our time and travel at a slower pace around the island in 11 days which means no rushing in and out of the bus with only 10 minutes to take a photo at every stop. Our small group size also allows us to experience some of Iceland’s less-traveled spots:


      Hot springs: In addition to the must-see Blue Lagoon, cleanse your body & soul in some less crowded hot springs.


      Secret Iceberg Lagoon: Take a zodiac to a hidden iceberg lagoon where it’ll be just you and the towering masses of ice, up close and personal!


      Beer spa & jacuzzi: Soak in wooden, beer-filled jacuzzis overlooking breathtaking mountain ranges all while sipping on your favorite glass of lager.

      This trip was amazing! Every detail was planned out by Globe Drifters and by our guide, Hany (the BEST tour guide EVER!). Everything ran smoothly. We visited temples/pyramids at times that had less crowds making the visits more enjoyable. Hany took care of all the logistics. All we had to do was sit back and enjoy our time. Egypt was a fascinating place to visit. I never once felt unsafe, even during free time when walking around alone. I have a more positive outlook about Egypt after this trip. The hotels were all 5-star. Some were older hotels, but all were super clean and the food was delicious. The views from my balconies in Aswan and Abu Simbel were picturesque! The Riverboat was also 5-star and very enjoyable. We could see some of the other riverboats were not as well maintained. The hot air balloon ride was one of the highlights as was the dinner with the Nubian family. So many other highlights too! Our group was small, only 8 people, from across the US and also one from London. We were a diverse group and we all got along well. We started out as strangers and ended up friends. Hany started out as our tour guide and is now our friend. I believe this trip would have been good with any tour guide, but it was GREAT with Hany. His knowledge and experience shows when he is telling the story of his country. He also has a great sense of humor which went well with our group dynamic. I spent 15 hours on the plane home trying to decide where I will go with Globe Drifters next. I just hope all the guides are as great as Hany!

      Great trip, with great people! I enjoyed the ease that Globe Drifters offered in doing the trip to Egypt. It was my first time traveling with a group and I very much enjoyed the experience. I would recommend this for anyone trying to get their feet wet in traveling and doesn't know all the spots to go to or hang out. The tour guide was fantastic and the rest of travelers were supportive throughout the trip. Globe drifters definitely took the stress out of planning a trip, would definitely recommend 👍🏼

      So “a trip of a lifetime“ is an understatement! I actually just got home yesterday ! I’m not sure where to begin, however, having Hany as our local guide, made the trip so much more special. Not only did he handle the logistics flawlessly, he is just a wonderful person, and knows his country inside and out. The trip and all the sites were truly spectacular. Do not hesitate to do the hot air balloon!! I was the oldest person in the group by several decades, however, I kept up! I could go on and on, but you’ll just have to go and find out for yourself!!

      The most phenomenal trip EVER! And then some!!! so the trip was absolutely spectacular with highly well educated guides. But beyond this, let me tell you the most unique experience with Globe Drifters EXPERT service… I LOST MY PASSPORT!! This is where Globedrifters as a company kicked into overdrive and seamlessly got me an emergency passport to return back to the United States. I discovered I was missing my passport. Completely my fault. Globedrifters arranged for an agent to fill out all documents with the Ecuadorian government and for me to take to the US Embassy in Quito Ecuador. They even found out that they were two appointments available and sent me the link. A representative from Globedrifters showed up at my hotel room with the completed documents ready for me to sign. And completed a packet for me to take to the consulate. Then the arranged for a driver and representative to take me to the US Embassy. In Quito Ecuador. I had my own private driver, and my own personal representative and all the documents necessary. They basically supplied me with every single document I needed drivers representatives and held my hand all the way to the US Embassy! Within two days of losing my passport, through Globe drifters, highly trained staff, I had a new emergency passport issued, and I was able to travel from Ecuador back to Mexico City, and from Mexico City back into the United States, seamlessly, and without any issue. The trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos was phenomenal. The expert service with retrieving a Passport from me was executed with such precision, I was really taken aback at how credibly organized this company is in the face of a crisis. I highly recommend Globedrifters this is the second trip that I’ve gone on with this company and without fail I am highly impressed.

      The Ecuador and Galapagos trip with Globe Drifters tours was truly memorable! We saw so much wildlife and different landscapes with many hikes and amazing snorkeling. The accommodations were top notch, it felt like 3 separate vacations between Quito, Mindo and Galapagos! Our tour guides were personable and shared so much knowledge, making transitions and experiences truly memorable! Highly recommend this trip!
