Best tour ever. And our personal highlight of our whole vacation. Our guide, Tom, was utterly amazing. He is a local and didn't just tell us the things you hear on every other tour but what he personally loves about his country. And he provided us with much information about the geological wonders of iceland. We visited Landmannalaugar and i have no words for the hike. I can't describe the sheer beauty. But also the way there throughout the highlands was an adventure and a sight I wouldn't miss for anything. We felt perfectly safe with Tom the whole time. Apart from that, the other sights depended on what Tom found worthy to show us and we were so lucky he did. Haifoss was magnificent, much more beautiful than gullfoss if you ask me! But the last stop just was amazing. I can't remember the name but it was an oasis in the middle of black sand. It really was magical. To end this - thanks Tom for a fantastic day we will remember forever.

This trip is amazing!! The quad tour is a must-do for everyone who wants to explore the nature of the area around Reykjavik away from the main roads, while having fun! Our guide was amazing (and very funny!!). The helicopter tour was about 35min with a landing on a mountain with a view of the area around Reykjavik! The transfer between the Quad-camp and Reykjavik domestic airport (which is very near to the city centre) was very fast and on time. All in all a 10/10 experience!

An excellent day jam-packed with amazing sights and experiences. It is a long day of travelling around but very much worth it. The glacier lagoon was beautiful - I would recommend the boat trip which we could book on the day - then on to diamond beach. The waterfalls later in the day were WOW moments.

Transport was easy to find and absolutely on time. Journey was short. Lagoon was well organised, clean and very modern. Lagoon was super temperature and stunning.

Extremely well organised day. Driver/guide was knowledgeable & gave us lots of information on Icelands history & landscape. A definite must do trip
