I've been on many scuba diving trips, educational/cultural adventures and international travels. This was the best-organized and executed by FAR. All accommodations were very clean and welcoming. Our guides were knowledgeable and responsive to our individual interests in the natural world. I signed up for trip ONE WEEK ahead and thought--oh, I know what to pack! But, I didn't for THIS trip. Tara's packing list SAVED me. Her careful instructions let me bring all the RIGHT items. Food and activities were excellent. We were taken care of SO very well. Tara kept everything running right on schedule, which is sometimes challenging if cultures run on island time! I have wanted to see Baja and the Sea of Cortez for many years and finally got my wish. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
thank you Cynthia for this rave review. It means to me that you took the time to write for everyone to see. It was a pleasure to meet you and to have you on our adventure. Hope to see you again! -- tara

Most amazing trip I've ever been on and I've traveled to many places! I wanted an adventure and I got it. Plenty of physical activities in the 10-days including hiking, glacier trekking, swimming, horseback riding, and kayaking. All the ladies in our group - along with our two guides - were so much fun! Would totally book another trip with Green Edventures! - Nikki
I can't say enough positive things about this trip! The guide and trip leader were knowledgeable, entertaining, professional, and SO fun to travel with! The planned activities kept us busy and gave us an excellent feel for what Iceland had to offer. I definitely want to go back. The pre-trip information prepared me well for all possibilities of weather and challenge, and I realized that before this trip, I had been missing the camaraderie of traveling with an all-women group. I would definitely do another trip with Green Edventures! Cheryl
AMAZING! Absolutely amazing, from start to finish. The attention to detail and care provided by both Tara and Kristin was above all. I made lifelong friends I didn't know I needed and have unforgettable memories to last a lifetime. It was educational and intimate with just the right number of fellow viking sisters. Between glacier trekking, horseback riding, and the countless waterfalls an adventure is guaranteed. From the fantastic food to the amazing views Iceland provides; everything felt like a dream...but it's your real life! If you're even slightly considering going to Iceland this is the way to do it, you will not be disappointed.
Experience of a lifetime!! A VERY well planned out trip that kept us busy all day. We never had to figure out where to go or how to get there, the hardest decision of the day was deciding on what delicious food to choose for supper. If we ever had a problem or a question, our guides had or found the answer for us. So glad I found this travel group, I'm planning on using it again!!!
