Our guide Höskuldur Frímannsson (the only reason I write his name correctly is because I asked them for a ticket!) Was fantastic and very enthusiastic, informed us well about the country and its secrets. Visited a few highlights at the golden circle. I like a quick schedule. And then on with a gigantic truck bus to glacier and over an hour with a snowmobile over the snow and jjs plain. In a word! genius!!

This tour and activity was truly fantastic. Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. Each location and activity were great. The only downside was the weather was not great and the time with each activity can seemed a bit rushed.

Golden Circle and Glacier Snowmobiling was once in a lifetime adventure to remember. I never even imagined snowmobiling on a glacier. Iceland is filled with natural beauty and we loved every minute of being here.

Margaret ourguide was so lovely. So many stories and information. So many amazing sights in one day and so handy, all you have to do is sit on the bus and enjoy each new place.

Excellent tour from start to finish. I would highly recommend this tour. Both the Guide and Driver were top class.
