Fascinating tour, with a very well put together audio guide provided by Karen and a comfortable drive provided by Gregor. Came away from the tour much more informed about Iceland, the Icelandic way of life, its people, history, geology...the lot! The sights on the tour were amazing to see and experience and well worth the money. It was a shame about the cancelled snowmobile tour, but we received a partial refund so not out of pocket.

Unforgettable experience, fantastic guide and a professional set up. Wish we could do it all over again!

Great experience, nothing felt rushed, transportation was seamless between both activities.

Excellent tour, viewed great places and the snowmobiling experience I would recommend.

Great trip!! amazing views and the tour guides were lovely
