Testimonials of our Photo Tours

“We plan on repeating it every year!”

Last year we went on the Huaywash trip in Peru with Ice Monkey Tours, a trip that’s hard to top. The experience was incredible, with excellent organization. The photographers are of the highest level and manage to transmit their knowledge in a simple way to help us achieve our photographs. We plan on repeating it every year!

“You will discover unique places.”

If you want to visit stunning areas of the world without spending a lot of time searching for the best spots, Ice Monkey Photo Tours definitely makes it easier for you. They take you to the most iconic places of each location, as well as lesser-known ones, offering photographic advice and even alternative options based on the weather. I went to Iceland with Jose D. Riquelme, and it was an experience worth repeating, without a doubt.

“You will enjoy joining an Ice Monkey tour”

The dream tour for any photographer

For years, I had the idea of traveling to Iceland. As a photographer, I not only wanted to make the most of my time there, but also learn some landscape photography tricks, so I set out to find tour guides who had designed a photography-focused itinerary showcasing Iceland’s main natural attractions and hidden gems. Luckily, last year I came across Ice Monkey, and after reviewing all the information about their tour, as well as the portfolio of the Ice Monkey team, I knew immediately that I had found my guides.

The tour was everything they promised and more; they proved to be not only knowledgeable and professional, but also very friendly and fun. The choice of accommodation and restaurants was also spot on. Even if you are not a photographer, you will enjoy joining an Ice Monkey tour, but if you are, this will be one of the best experiences you have ever had.

“I will definitely return to Iceland with them”

Visiting Iceland was one of my dearest dreams. Choosing to take this trip with Ice Monkey was the best decision I could have made. The place is infinitely beautiful, like another planet, and finding the best spots to capture the most stunning photos is quite a challenge that can only be achieved with the help of experts like the Ice Monkey team. While seeing the auroras cannot be guaranteed, the chances multiply when your guides know how to spot them beyond the naked eye. I will definitely return to Iceland with them.

“I am forever grateful to Icemonkey for this remarkable experience”

At the age of 65, I had the privilege of participating in a Photography Tour in Iceland to capture the stunning beauty of the Northern Lights and iconic landscapes. It was a truly unforgettable experience, thanks to the exceptional professionalism, dedication, and local knowledge of our guide, José David Riquelme. His unwavering commitment to ensuring our tour was nothing short of incredible was evident from start to finish. Not only did he expertly navigate the area, but he also generously shared his expertise by teaching us simple and practical photography techniques that have reignited my passion for the craft. I am forever grateful to Icemonkey for this remarkable experience.

“Taking my trip to Iceland with Ice Monkey Tours was an excellent decision”

Taking my trip to Iceland with Ice Monkey Tours was an excellent decision; I went with just one purpose: to see the Northern Lights, and I received much more than that. The tour was very well-planned, with exceptional beauty in the places visited, beautiful and comfortable hotels, a relaxed and well-utilized itinerary. The treatment was very cordial and friendly, from the airport reception, the transfers handled by the Ice Monkey team, the breakfasts, the photography classes, the tips… all made this an unforgettable experience that I would repeat again!!!

“A dream come true!!!”

The tour to Iceland was incredibly beautiful, a dream come true!!! We arrived on time to all the places and when there were fewer people to take mega photos and enjoy better!!!! The hotels were super clean and comfortable, and they took us to the best places to eat and for everything we needed!! The professionalism and dedication of Ice Monkey Tours is incomparable, they are amazing human beings!!! I will return to Iceland and other expeditions with Ice Monkey Tours ❤️❤️
