Its a bit of a long drive but the scenery is just stunning on the drive which total makes up for it, that and we were on a mini bus and not a coach. It's the only time in Iceland that I heard music from Icelandic bands as the driver made a point to play music when he was not giving us information, I love this so much as every where else was English/ US music. The guide himself knew his stuff, was full of information and stories and talk through wages, Icelandic life in general trolls, geology, geothermal and loads more. I loved how bus travel Iceland deliberately makes a point to take you to a few locations off the tourist trap routes on all my trips with them.

Die Tour kann man nur empfehlen. Bei der Tour ist alles geboten -Fjorde, Vulkane, Gletscher, schwarze Sandstrände, Seerobben- Wir hatten einen super einheimischen Guide "Simon", welcher uns während der Fahrt und an den Haltestellen viel Info's gab. Wir waren eine kleine Gruppe und die Atmosphäre war lässig und unkompliziert. Wir hatten an den Haltepunkten genug Zeit alles anzusehen, die Landschaft zu genießen und Simons Erzählungen zu lauschen. Das ganze wurde noch mit eine Kaffeepause und einem leckeren Mittagessen abgerundet. Einfach super :) :)

This was a lovely road trip style tour, we had a great guide who was really knowledgeable about the geography of Iceland. The bus stop in reykavik was easy to find and pickup was easy, just bare in mind that there are no loos close to the bus stop so make sure you go before. The resturant that we stopped at for lunch was delicious and served fresh fish dishes. Overall I had a really great day and would highly reccomed this tour.

Tom did it! He turned a 12 hour trip into a completely amazing ride. We saw beautiful places always followed by the history behind them. What a great and fun way to end our time in Iceland.

Great tour, very well organised, beautiful places to see, good guide and last but not least we had a very comfortable bus.
