We family of 5 ,booked the Northen Lights private tour + airport transfers with Sultan when we visited Iceland in Feb 2024.Sultan picked us from Airport during our arrival and have been kind enough to make a stop for us to grab dinner and some grocery before we head to our accomodation.Sultan was always in contact with us providing updates on aurora activities possibility.Lucky us that we got to see some aurora activities during our 2nd night in Iceland. While it is cold weather at night while waiting for the aurora, it is very much worth it. And he even took the photos for us with the aurora too!Sultan is very knowledgable while explaining to us about the aurora and remaining info of Iceland itself.A very warm person while he put the customers need first.Overall we are very satisfied with the service and would recommend their private tour for those prefer a customized travelling journey.

We had an excellent experience with a northern lights tour with Sultan. It was relatively short notice due to weather conditions. He made adjustments to time and did a fantastic job finding a good spot to see the lights and capturing some great pictures. Thank you so much!!! (Wish we'd done more private tours with Sultan. Definitely the way to go.)

Our group of 8 recently took a trip to Iceland with the northern lights being at the top of our list of things to see. We had reservations on 3 different nights with 3 different companies but they were all cancelled due to weather (we heard others did see the lights these nights). We reached out to Sultan at Iceland Paradise Tours as a last resort. He agreed to take us out and was determined to do everything he could to help us see the lights. He was extremely knowledgeable and knew the best locations. He had us wait in the van while he tracked the lights outside, alerting us when they became visible. We had a great time and Sultan took a lot of great pics!!! I’d highly recommend starting with this company!

I had an incredible experience on this Northern Lights tour in Iceland. Not only did I witness the stunning aurora, but I also captured amazing photos with their camera. To top it off, they treated us to delicious homemade hot chocolate and cookies, making the adventure even more memorable. Highly recommended for a magical Northern Lights experience!

We highly recommend Sultan. Booking private tours gave us the flexibility we wanted on our trip. We booked the South Coast tour and Northern Lights tour.Sultan was extremely knowledgeable about all of Iceland. On our last night, the lights came out and Sultan provided us with professional photos of our family at no additional charge. He loves what he does and it shows! We were happy to meet him and so relieved we made the right choice in going with Iceland Paradise Tours!

Just back from 4 days in Reykjavik 🥰 we had a few poor experiences with it some of the bus travel tours, but I highly recommend Sultan Mahmoud- Iceland Paradise Tours! Sincerely regretted booking with greyline instead of this guy, as they cancelled our northern lights excursion due to unfavourable conditions and on the same night this guy found them for his group, after travelling to Iceland with hopes of seeing them I should have paid the little extra, however I did use him for the airport transfers as for 5 people he was cheaper than the buses and much less hassle! He kept in contact the whole time and was waiting in arrivals, fast and easy transfer to the hotel and back and loads of great advice about where to eat and things to do on the way. The south Iceland tour I booked was with bus travel Bustravel Iceland and the bus kept overheating so that caused a few issues including my son almost passing out(amongst others), to avoid disappointment next time I’ll will be booking with Sultan for a super reliable, hassle free trip

I booked a private tour with Sultan the Guide for the South Coast waterfalls and beaches. He turned out to be the best tour guide for the trip, arrived for the pickup on time and explained about the places really well. Also offered drone photography & videography. Highly recommended.

Fantastic private tour We went on a private tour with Sultan as our guide. We are a family of 5, with 3 kids (3,8,11). Sultan was AMAZING. He made us feel very relaxed, safe and happy. His vehicle was clean, comfortable and warm. We had wifi and USB cables and chargers in the vehicle as well. We did not feel rushed and he was extremely patient with the kids. I would definitely recommend him for anyone with or without kids. We had enough toilet breaks and the trip was very enjoyable. He also took beautiful pictures of our family and we really appreciate this. His photography skils were amazing. Always a challenge to get good pictures, but he made it so effortless. We wish we could go on more tours with him. Definitely worth every penny.

Sultan , Great guide for our group We had an amazing time in Reykjavík with our guide sultan. We used sultan’s services for several trips and he was always on time and ready to give us any tips he could to make our trip more memorable. I have to give sultan a 5 star rating for our northern lights tours , despite the temperature being a cool -23 degrees he stayed out with us until we got to see the northern dancing in the sky and took a lot of photos for our group, truly a trip to remember.

Fantastic knowledge tour guide Sultan was a passionate guide. He gets very excited about sharing his knowledge of the northern lights. He has he studies the weather map to find a place with low probability of clouds and a high probability of Northern lights. He made sure to get a picture of everyone and send it to them. He instructs you on how to get the best picture with your own phone camera. It was a wonderful experience. We saw lots of lights for about an hour and were allowed to go into the bus for warmth when needed.

BEST EXPERIENCE!! There’s no words to compare the stunning sceneries we’ve seen but we would never have this amazing and more private experience if we didn’t have Sultan as our guide. He’s simply the best! His priority is us (his clients) and he’s very thoughtful and always thinks ways so we can have the best time ever.. and we did! . We did the Golden Circle and the South Coast Tour and everything was just so convenient! He picks us up and drops us off from and to our accomodation every day. He knows when’s the best time to go to places when there’s not much people or tour buses around so we can have better photos. He even made an extra effort and took us to a place that is not part of the usual South Coast Tour and boy, the view there was breathtaking!! He even gave us Icelandic snacks and drinks to try… and I mean, which tour does that?? I can’t recommend Sultan enough. If you’re looking for a more private and wonderful experience in Iceland, book him NOW!

Wonderful Experience! If you want a guide who makes extra effort for you to have the best experience, book him NOW! He brought us to places to hunt the Northen Lights when others are saying it will most likely be cancelled due to the heavy rain. He provided us with the the best hot chocolate and home made cookies made by his wife while we were waiting dor the sky to clear up and eventually, we were able to see it! Though it was hiding beneath the clouds and would’ve been a lot better if it was a clear night sky, we were still glad to be able to faintly see it and made us tick it from our bucket list and he even took nice photographs of us using his professional Camera.

Golden Circle We used Iceland Paradise Tours for our Golden Circle tour. Sultan is a very friendly, professional and knowledgeable guide and went out of his way to ensure we had the best time on our trip to Iceland. Very comfortable 7 seat car (there were only 4 of us). Sultan was always punctual and also he made extra/additional stops if we wanted and there were no time constraints at each location, which you don't get with a big tour group. We also did the South Coast/Diamond Beach Tour and used Sultan for airport transfers.
