It worked smoothly from beginning to end. Thank you Nordic Visitor and in particular Dagny. The overall experience exceeded our expectations.
We loved the attention to detail. Annie obviously understood what type of planning we wanted. We were able to be spontaneous if we saw something that we wanted to include. Many of the owners of accommodations told us how happy they were to be working with Nordic Visitors. The travel guide was sturdy, survived the trip in one piece, even served as a plate for our lunches eaten in the car as we would return from a walk.
We took scotch tape along to mend the map, it's pretty big to handle in the car. And a highlighter to add stops and reminders to help us when we start putting our pictures together. But, the travel guide will be the most helpful when it comes to putting our travel album together. The places we stayed at were so very nice.
I don't know how we would rank them. The owners were so very nice and helpful. Giving us directions and making recommendations on dinners and even making reservations for us. The locations of the accommodations were usually within walking distance of village centers. Picking up our rental car was speedy and well organized. A new car was ready for us and they took the time to go over key points of the car. Excellent service and a well organised trip. The ease of getting about was further helped by the amazingly good English spoken by almost everyone we interacted with, even in the more remote areas of the country.
I'd happily travel with Nordic Visitor again, and indeed hope to at some stage.
We really loved this trip and all your help. Your suggestions were always great. The fact that you called a hotel to make last minute arrangements and then called us to explain, was so appreciated. I can't say enough about our trip, all your help, and of course the country of Iceland. We are so looking forward to coming back after October. Did Iceland Full Circle in 2015 and Hidden Gems this year.
Will book with you for sure if and when we go on anorher Scandinavian tour. Have recommended you to multiple friends already. The trip was superb and the redoing of our itinerary because of the weather was seamless which we appreciated greatly. I would highly recommend Nordic Visitor to anyone traveling - they were professional, and so very very helpful.Something that was out of your control but played an important part in our unforgettable adventure was that the weather was sunny and warm everyday.
We have experienced Iceland in all types of weather and it didn't stop us from enjoying ourselves immensely but the sunshine was an added bonus. Very quick to answer all of my questions with friendly informative replies Choices of varied accommodation was wonderful - loved the guesthouses. Daily driving time was perfect between destinations- not too long or too short. Excellent planning - well done.
We had a wonderful time. Our accommodations were very good and loved the wonderful breakfast every morning. We didn't feel rushed and people were so willing to help us and give us advice. We greatly enjoyed the tour and have specifically recommended it to friends already (to see if they want to join us for another one. I've already recommended Nordic Visitor to two friends. My husband and I will be using Nordic Visitor when we return to Iceland in the future.
I couldn't be more pleased with Nordic Visitor. On both my tours with you Iceland and Norway the service was absolutely perfect. I have been travelling for 31 yrs and I have to say the service provided by Nordic Visitor (through Sindre) was exemplary!. And they went beyond perfect in Norway when I came down with pneumonia. I have never had such good service from a tour company before ever.
If not for the fact that I have been to all the other destinations on their list I would have no hesitation in booking with them again. Your company is terrific. Everything was thought of and documentation was great.
We loved Iceland We were very impressed with the whole trip. The hotels were great. Travel documents all ready at the train station for us. Really enjoyed the trip and look forward to doing another one in the future. I was just so impressed with everything.
From the minute I made my first enquiry, till the point I was dropped off at the airport on my return, I felt that I was important to Nordic Visitor and nothing was too much trouble. Can I pay particular tribute to Karolina our tour guide.
She is an absolute credit to your company. She really went out of her way to ensure we all had a wonderful holiday. She was professional, diligent, so hardworking and we all fell in love with her. Everything about this trip was so easy and Thor did an amazing job at assisting with all aspects, adding and changing our schedule and providing us with all the information necessary for an amazing trip.
Both my girlfriend and I were delighted with every aspect of the trip, from the booking, all the way through to the accommodation, transfers, and activities. Utterly perfect The overall experience exceeded our expectations and was a truly wonderful experience. The husky sled transfer from the airport was amazing.
Every trip we did had helpful, happy and informative staff.Mid-way on my trip my travel consultant, Larus, called me on the cell they had provided just to see how things were going and to make sure I was aware of the weather warning that had been issued. I never had a minute's concern or disappointment in any of the arrangements. My wife and I tend to be pretty independent when it comes to travel but for our honeymoon (Iceland, December-January 2014-2015) we decided a little help would be a nice change of pace.
I'm really glad we wend with Nordic Visitor. Not only was our representative helpful and knowledgeable in the planning, he saved us a considerable amount of money on hotel and rental car rates. Having a phone (included with rental car packages) and a local advocate was especially handy when our car broke down 10 miles from the nearest town and more than an hour from Reykjavik. Overall, we love our trip and really appreciated working with Nordic Visitor.
You made my visit to Tromso two years ago amazing and this visit to Iceland, as well. I'm so glad I found your company. I've told friends about you.
I can't wait to return to Iceland when the landscape is green, to see it as a completely different country (and vacation). Nordic Visitor handled our enquiries very promptly and brilliantly.
We were very impressed by the services and every other little things that truly showed a high demand of care and consideration. We will definitely return to Iceland with Nordic Visitor. My Travel Consultant Ms. Cecilia Markov was extremely helpful and professional in all aspects of dealing with the customer.
Her invaluable assistance allowed me to choose, modify, and combine the existing tours to fulfill all my needs. The hotel locations were excellent and the arrangements made by Ms.ma bete ka atut rista - ma ne bete k liye kar diya apradh - kise hogi jurm ki saza -dekhiye 2020 HD
Cecilia Markov ensured that everything worked perfectly well without any glitches. I would strongly recommend such excellent services to anyone who would like to have an unforgettably pleasant holiday.
I highly recommend booking your nordic trip with Nordic Visitor. Gudrun and her colleagues provided exception service from my very first email inquiry. I was kept informed of the status of my booking and complete details were emailed in plenty of time to review and ask questions prior to my departure to Iceland. My only regret was that I didn't stop by their office in Reykjavik to say "hello" and thank them for a job well done.
All of the tours that were part of the New Year's Eve package were great. The guides were are very warm and friendly and really wanted their guests to feel comfortable and have a great time. I'm so looking forward to visiting Iceland again and will definitely book my trip through Nordic Visitor.
We have just returned from Iceland where we enjoyed a self drive tour arranged by Nordic visitor. Our advisor listened to our requirements which included the better hotels and included the golden circle tour.
We especially enjoyed our trip to the glacial lagoon at Jokulsarlon. A pretty long drive from Vik where we stayed the night before and on fairly tricky roads as there had been a good snowfall but worth the trip. The hotels were of a good standard generally especially Hotel Borg in Reykjavik a delightful Art Deco hotel.
Iceland is expensive but we thought the tour good value for money with good information packs and also a mobile phone provided for our use while in Iceland. Reassuring with the snow. We appreciated the maps and materials provided by our travel agent. The maps of the area made our drive so easy and uncomplicated.
Her outlining of the itinerary both on the map and the spiral book made our trip uncomplicated and relaxing. All materials provided in our travel bag were used daily, and the big Iceland Road Guide was a great addition.Helpful Joan of Breezewood, PA Verified Reviewer Original review: Dec.

Helpful Fred of St Petetsburg, FL Verified Reviewer Original review: Nov. Product reviews by real customers can help other consumers contemplating a product to decide if it is worth buying. If the reviews are positive, this can translate into a big sales lift for the retailer, so it makes sense that a business would want to encourage public customer feedback. Not only is it unethical to pay someone to leave a positive review, but if it's discovered as a fake, your business reputation could take a serious hit.
For this reason, Amazon recently banned incentivized reviews to ensure that all product reviews are authentic and genuine. Letting your customers know that reviews help increase your business, or help you figure out where your product or service needs improvement, will encourage them to leave a review. The point of showing reviews and testimonials is to share your brand with prospects and being genuine is always the best practice.
If you do choose to offer free or discounted products in exchange for a review by an "influencer," such as a blogger or social media user with a lot of followers, be aware that the Federal Trade Commission has a set of detailed Endorsement Guides for anyone publicly endorsing a product at the request of a brand.
According to the FTC's website, these guides are meant to disclose advertiser relationships and "reflect the basic truth-in-advertising principle that endorsements must be honest and not misleading. FTC guidelines notwithstanding, Matt Iswariah of Luxzura said he thinks influencers should always mention if they received a product for free or at a discount, even if they're not doing a full review. I see many blogs that do include disclaimers to show how they received the product," Iswariah said.
If a customer agrees to leave you a review, keep an eye out for it online, Osmond said. When it goes live, you should call your customer and thank them for the review and their candor. If it was a negative review, this is a great opportunity to find out how your business can improve, he added. Looking for more tips on working with social influencers.

Before offering your children an afterschool snack, request that they finished their lunch. How many times have you given them a snack and then dumped the contents of their lunch box into the trash.
Ask your child to bring home lunch leftovers. Looking at leftover lunches is a great way to get information about your children's lunch preferences. Find out why certain foods have come back uneaten. Did your child not like it. Was she not hungry enough to eat everything in the lunchbox. Was there a birthday celebration at school that day.
Did she share someone else's lunch instead. Maintain a dialogue without criticizing. Consider making a list of foods that your child likes to eat for lunch and update it regularly with input from your child. You may find that she prefers romaine lettuce to red leaf lettuce.
By making this simple change, she might start eating salads more regularly. Providing a dip for carrot and celery sticks might make eating them more fun. Encourage your children to help plan, prepare and pack their own lunches. They're more likely to eat a meal that they've helped prepare. Involvement in meal preparation also teaches them where their food comes from, and it provides them with the confidence and skills they will need to prepare food for themselves later in life.
Younger children can cut fruit or make their own trail mix from a selection of healthy items such as raisins, dried apricots, sunflower seeds, whole-grain cereals, and pumpkin seeds.

One of the most critical periods of the process is the follow-up after purchase: making your customer feel like they've made the right choice as soon as they've bought from you goes a long way to developing your relationship with them.
In this regard, we have a lot to learn from a service position that you might not expect: waiters and waitresses. Not only do they interact directly with the customer, research has found that their "follow up" (post purchase) actions can greatly effect the customer's perception of their service, and accordingly, the tip that they leave them.
In a study published in the Journal of Applied Social Psychology, researchers tested the effects that mints had against a control group, where no mints were given, in order to measure their effectiveness in increasing tips. The first group studied had waiters giving mints along with the check, making no mention of the mints themselves.
The second group had waiters bring out two mints by hand, and they mentioned them to the table ("Would anyone like some mints before they leave.
The last group had waiters bring out the check first along with a few mints. A short time afterward, the waiter came back with another set of mints, and let customers know that they had brought out more mints, in case they wanted another. At first glance, the last two groups seem very similar: two mints per-person were brought out, and the waiter mentioned them.
In the last test, the only difference was that the waiter brought out the second set of mints after some time had passed, and mentioned that they had done so in case the table would like some more.
The post-purchase follow up with genuine concern for the customer ("I thought you might like more mints. It was the surprise and the perception of the waiter's willingness to follow up post purchase that made customers so happy. That first purchase is especially critical, and the process of creating supporters out of customers doesn't just end with making a great product. Given what we know about the power of following up, what can online businesses do to create a similar kind of customer satisfaction that waiters were able to do with mere mints.
Obviously that follow up freebie (chocolate mint or otherwise) works very well, but what kind of follow-up can be offered. If a simple mint can do this for customers who just paid for a full meal, you can definitely offer some value for free post-purchase, no matter what you're selling.

Helpful Be the first one to find this review helpful Julie of Lincoln, NE Verified Reviewer Original review: Dec. Service was turned off one full day prior. No final bill was ever received.
We received 3 emails telling us equipment retrieval kits were on the way and we never received them. I called DirecTV and after waiting for an eternity, was told their policy had just changed and they no longer send out retrieval boxes.
Instead you are to take all equipment to FedEx and they will know what to do with them. We went to FedEx and waited 40 minutes while the FedEx staff figured out how to go about entering each serial number into their system in the correct place in order to ship the equipment back.
When I called to express our confusion over the matter of returning the equipment, the DirecTV person I spoke with (named Lucas) hung up on me. Now I'm trying to get a copy of our final bill.

After numerous phone calls, I was told eventually that I owed nothing and was actually owed a small refund.
Well, the bills kept coming and I kept calling. Now I'm told they have no record of anyone telling me that I owed nothing. I will pay their bill and hopefully I'll be rid of this company. It is no longer worth the hours I have to spend on the phone to try and rectify the problem. Avoid this company at all costs.
