It was an awesome experience , I still have another 4 days in Iceland but I’m worried that I did the best first ;) was beautiful , some of the videos I took is like a nature documentary I booked this tour and was super excited. But it managed to beat my expectations. The diamond beach , the glacier hike and the boat tours were amazing as well the canyons and waterfalls Our guide David was super awesome, he did bunch of Extra stops as well just for us. He was very professional during the glacier hike and it was super smooth and amazing . I can’t say enough good things about the tour and the guide. I liked nicetravel so much that I canceled one of my tours and I booked another tour with them Also the minibuses are modern and they all have usb chargers and wifi I’m a solo traveler so I was a bit worried about the shared bed and breakfast situation , it turned out that getyourguide didn’t update their website and you just get a single room with private bathroom covered

It was an incredibly beautiful and fascinating tour! Our guide was very funny and told us a lot of interesting stories about Iceland and the places we were! There was no mass processing and you always had enough time to explore everything in peace! I can only recommend it!
