This was fabulous! Due to a canceled flight, we lost a whole day on our Iceland trip and had to make some tough decisions on what plans to keep and what plans to cancel. I am SO glad we decided to keep this tour. Our guide was Simon. He said that Snaefellsnes is his favorite (easy to see why) and it certainly seemed that way. Simon was genuine, friendly, professional, and helped us make the most of our day. Though it was a long day with lots of driving, it was worth it for the beautiful scenery. Just magical. I think I would say to anyone visiting Iceland that Snaefellsnes is a must, and this was a great way to see it.

This tour is probably the best I’ve done yet! It was amazing! A little bit too long but loved it! We saw an Arctic Fox too it came close and allowed us to feed it! Our tour guide was called Siggi and he was brilliant, really informative and taught us many things about Iceland. The tour allowed us to see the sun rise and the sun set again due to the short hours of daylight this time of year! Highly recommend this tour, we saw sooo much more than we thought!

Great tour with Omar Highly recommended, even if the weather was not always gracious to us. There were eight of us, and the atmosphere was great. Great corners and photo opportunities found. The tour was worth every penny.

Its was the greatest tour ever… our guide Omar was so nice he made the tour very enjoyable sneafellness is must see place in Iceland… just amazing i really recommend this tour

The sites of Iceland are all to be seen and those there too. I will not say more to leave the surprise. Have a nice turn
