Really appreciated our guide's commentary (Siddi) he was so informative and interesting. It was an amazing experience to receive the knowledge that had been passed down from his grandparents! I also really appreciated him waiting as I lost my camera and he let me go back and run around looking for it. The trip was well worth it - only complaint would be the bus - a little uncomfortable in the seats, definitely not built for anyone with hips, and couldn't fit a normal rucksack in the space above so I had to keep it on me. Bonus stops: ICELANDIC HORSES - which were so cute and fluffy and our guide (Siddi) even brought food with him so we could feed them! ICECREAM at a little farm where you could see the cows through the window of the cafe!

The best day so far of our trip. Even though the Blue Lagoon was closed, we were given the option to visit the sky lagoon instead. The whole day was amazing from start to finish. Our guide was really friendly and knowledgeable and even took us to extra spots as we had the time. We saw so much of Iceland’s natural beauty. This tour is fantastic value for money. Thank you for an unforgettable day.

We had the best tour advisor, Christina. She called and waited for me and my brother whilst we were at the wrong bus stop. Very informative, friendly and enjoyable full day. She took us to some extra places that wouldn’t have been in our radar! Will definitely request trips lead by her when I visit again!

Kristof was a great guide, full of stories and fun facts about Iceland! The timing at each stop was also fantastic. We never felt rushed, which made the experience that much better!

Really great trip. I think food could be involved for how expensive the trip was.
