Had a wonderful experience. The best tour in Iceland. David was a fantastic guide, friendly, cheerful and knowledgeable. Luckily there were less participants therefore we got to see some extra places as well. Also witnessed northern lights. Transportation, accommodation, meals and schedule, everything was quality and nicely organized. Will recommend everyone to choose this tour.

This tour was the perfect two day tour for our limited time frame. It was set at a good pace but we weren't rushed through anything, the tour guide was really knowledgable and nice, and it allowed us to see so much in a short amount of time. Even though we had a semi-strict schedule our guide still pulled over and allowed us to get off the bus to take pictures of a group of wild reindeer which was so cool to see! There was a lot of driving but that is to be expected on a tour that covers a large distance. The hotel we stayed at was very nice, overall we had a great experience and came away having seen and learned many amazing things about Iceland! I highly recommend going during the week as we saw almost zero crowds during our Tuesday/Wednesday tour.

Very good but cancellations due to bad weather

David was great as a guide and did his best to satisfy us despite the snowstorm that prevented us from doing the Blue Ice Cave and the Jökulsárlón glacier. In fact, the roads were closed and our guide had to look for B plans. Disappointments at not having pushed as far as the Jökulsárlón and having suddenly missed the Northern Lights because of the storm. Otherwise the geographic location of the hostel was ideal for seeing the dawn. Visit of another ice cellar with a long jeep ride as plan B, it was very significant.
