What Things Cost in Iceland

Typical Prices for Common Items

The Traveling Professor just got back from running two small group tours to Iceland.  We spent 5 nights with each small group.  Our itinerary consisted of visiting Reykjavik, a tour of the Golden Circle, a tour of the dramatic South Coast, a walking tour of the city, as well as a visit to the famous Blue Lagoon.  Touring Iceland with a small group makes sense money-wise since we take advantage of sharing transportation costs.  But what do things cost in Iceland if traveling on your own.  We visit that topic today in our blog post.

We're Off to Iceland

Northern Lights Tour

small group tour iceland and northern lightsOn Tuesday I board an Icelandair flight from Boston to Reykjavik, Iceland.  We will meet 13 travelers there for a small group tour of Iceland and the Northern Lights.  Although I have been to Iceland several times, never for the Northern Lights.  We hope Mother Nature cooperates and gives us some cloud-less days.  I've also been answering a lot of questions on Iceland, mainly about how cold it will be.  I'm anticipating temps in the 30's and maybe the 40'.  Take a look at our blog post to see what will be going on on our small group tour to Iceland and the Northern Lights.

3 Elegant Lunch Spots in Paris

small group tours to ParisWe just completed 2 small group tours to Paris.  Each group had 7 travelers and we completed our "Paris Beyond the Eiffel Tower Tour".  Our guide, the well-known Michael Osman, took us past the typical tourist destinations of Paris and opened our eyes to lesser-known but wonderful sites like the Musée Jacquemart-André, Musée Nissim de Camondo, Parc Monceau, a walk through the passages of Paris, and the Musée National Eugène-Delacroix.  An important part of each day on our small group tours of Paris was lunch.  In today's blog post I will point out 3 bargain lunches in Paris, 2 of them at some of the most elegant locations to be found.

Normandy Invasion Beaches Tour

Normandy Invasion Beaches TourToday is the 74th anniversary of the Normandy Invasion.  The Traveling Professor just completed a small group tour to the Normandy Invasion Beaches with 12 travelers.  There are quite a few ways to do a tour of the Normandy Invasion Beaches.  Some people do it as a one-day big bus tour from Paris, some people do a self-drive tour, some people hire a private guide.  Then, there is the issue of how many days to spend on the beaches and where to stay.  The Professor gives his opinion on all of this with today's blog post on how to do a D Day tour of the Normandy Invasion Beaches.

Enjoy the tastes and culture of smaller authentic cities. Avoid the crowds and long lines, eat real Italian food, see amazing sites, and stay at outstanding hotels all less expensively than can be done in the large cities.
