    We enjoyed a wonderful Tour in the Silfra rift with Ronan. We got a good instruction with no questions left and always a safe feeling at the Tour. The Equipment like the drysuit was good and seemed to be not often in use before. The Pictures are awesome!! Thanks for the cool guiding Ronan :)

    It was nice when it finally did start after 2 hours waiting in the cold and wind. Too many chinese people going first and before all the others. Why? We paid the same price i think. If Icelanders want to keep tourists from all other the world and not only chinese, they have to manage this much better. The leader Marita was great and very smiling.

    With one of the best tours we have ever done. We were on December 26th. and it was cloudy which didn't matter much. Our tour started at 9.30 a.m. and we were the first in the water, but it was still a bit too dark for photos, but you could still see everything well. David was a great guide and with 4 people we were a very small group. After the snorkeling experience, which was not as cold as feared, there was cocoa, coffee or tea with cookies and chocolate candies. The "Camp" was decorated with fairy lights for Christmas and the guides wore Christmas hats
