    This was my favourite day out in Iceland. The tour was really interesting, giving the opportunity to see some amazing sights including icy mountains, frozen rivers, hot springs, geysers, waterfalls etc. However the only disappointment was the tablets they handed out, which provided information on 34 points along the route. We were given one to share and unfortunately ours had a flat battery after 5 minutes and both charging cables in the seats were broken.

Our guide BG was amazing. You're lucky if you get him! He was full of cheeky, witty jokes, and he is extremely knowledgeable and insightful. To be honest, I was feeling under the weather. Everyone else in the trip was pretty hyped about everything and so BG was keeping up with their energy. But when he spoke to me, he matched my energy, and treated me kindly with respect. What a great guy! The trip itself was amazing too. We got very wet at the locations, from waterfalls to the black beach. So be prepared for that! It was truly awesome and inspiring. Highly recommend!

Very varied tour, thanks to the audio guide in the bus, also very suitable for non-English speaking guests, we were lucky that our guide even spoke German. The stays at the individual stations were chosen not to be too short, so that it was not hectic.

Hi! That was better than I expected. Big thanks to our guide for taking such excellent care of a group and being super helpful. The route itself is definitely must see. The best part of it were black sand beach, waterfalls

We had an amazing time during this tour! Our guide (BG - sorry if misspelled) was absolutely helpful and knowledgeable. We highly recommend this tour!

Easy to book. Comfortable bus. The guide was knowledgeable and had good stories.
