Bargain Iceland Tour

An Exclusive High End Iceland Tour at a Bargain Price

small group tours to IcelandThe Traveling Professor has been running his exclusive small group tour to Iceland for several years now.  Iceland has a lot to offer in terms of natural beauty.  There are volcanoes, geysers, glaciers, black sand beaches and breathtaking waterfalls. There is the unique geothermal bathing experience at the Blue Lagoon. However, Iceland can be expensive.  It has been ranked as the second most expensive city in Europe. The Traveling Professor is introducing an exclusive bargain Iceland small group tour.  But don't the the words "Bargain Iceland" scare you away. Everything about this tour is top-notch in terms of lodging, private guided tours, and a premium Blue Lagoon experience.  See the blog post for more.

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.

The Joy of Inexpensively Flying Premium Economy Overseas

Flying Premium EconomyIf you are like The Traveling Professor, you abhor those overnight coach class trans-Atlantic flights from North America to Europe.  They are jam-packed, cramped, and they are practically impossible to get any sleep on.  You could always book business or first class, but that will probably cost about $3,000 or more.  But on a recent small group tour to Italy, we took an overseas flight from New York to Italy, I flew in comfort with a good 6 hours of shut-eye, for less than a coach-class seat.  See why Premium Economy is the only way to go to Europe.

The Professor just returned from a small group tour to Italy.  We saw a lot of great sites like the David at the Accademia and the classic Renaissance Italian art at the Uffizi Palace.  We enjoyed the charm and history of this great Tuscan city.  But when it came time to eat, we took advantage of the bounty of wonderful Italian food, Tuscan style. The best restaurants in Florence feature fresh vegetables, aromatic herbs, home-made pasta, organic beef.  Don't forget about the pizza, cheeses, fruits and of course the best gelato in the world.  Read about The Traveling Professor's ppicks for some of the best restaurants in Florence.
