Dear Sunna, I just wanted to write a quick email to thank you and your company for providing a great experience for our group. When I contracted with GJ Travel, I was a little uneasy because I was not sure exactly what I was getting. But after this past week, I am very happy with the decision that I made. Our guide, Klaus, was a very professional and congenial man that had a great rapport with our students. He was amiable and was bursting with interesting information as well as great anecdotes that filled the time. The meals were extraordinary. All three dinners were fantastic, allowing our students to experience Icelandic cuisine, all the while providing ample sustenance after long days of touring. The hotel, though not luxurious, provided exactly what we needed in terms of a clean place to lay our heads as well as an expansive buffet to start our days off. The buses were large and clean and allowed our students comfort while traversing the Icelandic countryside. Lastly, every email encounter I had with you was comforting as you continuously solved any issue, answered any question, and provided thorough details as we moved ever closer to our departure date. In closing, Iceland was the zenith of natural beauty that I had heard it to be, but our Icelandic experience was made all the better because we were provided that experience by GJ Travel. Thank you again. If I make it to Iceland again, it most certainly will be with your company and, hopefully, Klaus Jenter.

Dear Petur, I just wanted to thank you and fisherman Petur for a fabulous trip - I think this particular trip was my absolute favourite of the 5 school trips I've done. You and Petur were my favourite guides and I really enjoyed talking to you both and learning more about my favourite county on the planet. Thank you for taking care of us all - especially when the weather was scary and for taking us to see places I hadn't been before. I really hope you and Petur can be our guides next year when we come again - I am going to ask for you both (I hope you're happy about this!). Loads of parents have been emailing me this morning to say their children cant stop talking about the amazing things they saw on the trip and that they all want to come again - so a success all round! And I bought a great retro 66 North T-shirt in Reykjavik yesterday so I'm delighted with that as well! Enjoy your next school party! Thanks again for everything - really hope to see you soon.

Hi Dilja and Norbert,
I just wanted to personally reach out and tell you how grateful I am for all of the work that you put into our program. I know that our debrief wasn't until next week, but I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything! The program was great and the students had a wonderful time experiencing your incredible country.
I know that the timeline on this program was ultra short and we came to you with a pretty impossible itinerary, but you worked with us to make it incredible. Thank you for dealing with all of the last-minute issues that came up with this group and with inconsistencies on our end. You have all far exceeded our expectations time and time again! I also would like to recognize how amazing Haldór, Emil, and Hólmfríður are for being incredible, knowledgeable professionals and people in general! Just know that we appreciate that you all really put a lot of effort behind this trip and we cannot tell you how thankful we are for that!
Have a fantastic week and I look forward to speaking with you more next week!
Mariah (Expedition Leader on the trip) / Dated 27.03.17
