Great value for money! It was my favourite tour, with amazing sites throughout. Driving there takes quite a while, so you do spend some time on the bus. But is it is worth it. We got a van (rather than a bus), which was nice. And the driver / guide was amazing, very nice, shared interesting stories and played nice music on the road. The downside is that I didn't get as much time as I would have liked at each site, but that is what tours are.

Pick-up went smoothly and we were on our way in a few minutes.! Tom was an incredible guide - it was a very long day, so his great sense of humor definitely added color and kept us smiling. He was knowledgeable about the sites we visited, shared some wonderful tidbits about Norse mythology and showed us a few extras along the way. Pride for the natural wonders of his country, shone throughout the trip! Would highly recommend !

Just utterly amazing! We thought we'd see some fantastic things but this exceeded our expectations a million times over! Simon, the guide, was absolutely fantastic - so informative, so much fun and obviously has such a passion for this incredible country. It was a trip that has provided memories for a lifetime. Completely recommend it and cannot wait to come back to Iceland for more wonderful adventures!

The drive was smooth and amazing. Yoav the guide, kept us engaged throughout the trip. Overall it's good and I will recommend

The tour was really well organised, we got to see wonderful places, the guide was cool and friendly!
