What people are saying about Vik

One of our highlights in Iceland was this tour, the glacier lagoon and the boat ride was a dream. Diamond Beach was also stunning. The tour was customized to our needs and all of our requests were met. Our guide was very nice and very informative. The Black Beach was an adventure and we were more than enthusiastic about the Yoda Cave our guide suggested. The Yeep ride is a lot of fun! It was more than worth it :-)

This was my second visit to Iceland. This tour was the best one I have been on between the two trips. Our guide Valthor was amazing. Great driver, knowledgeable and patient. Highly recommend!

Great service and contact information. Went with South coast tours and balloon tires were heaps of fun and smooth
