    Howser was our guide and wow! His stories and knowledge was excellent. He made the 11 hour trip go very quick and we were sad to get off the bus. Kirkjufell mountain was stunning, we would go back to Iceland just for that. Lunch stop was nicer than expected, delicious fresh fish in a great restaurant and a stop on the way back to the city for the best chocolate cake. Trip was well worth the money.

    I am so glad and feeling so lucky to have booked this day trip. I had an amazing experience. The place itself speaks everything. Apart from that I would say I got super lucky because I got the guide named Howser. I cannot express how glad I am to have gotten the guide like him, one of the best days in Iceland. His passion towards his country, his stories and his wisdom and wise words was tremendous. He is super funny, kept the journey Alive, an hour seemed like few minutes. Best part is , I was asking him where we can see the horses since it was my first travel to Iceland, we were not only on time, to and from , he took to so many secret and additional stops and he showed the horses on the way. It felt surreal. I have to mention this - on the way I had my jacket greased on the road because of the wind, it was no one's fault, he took an initiative to get my jacket dry cleaned and drop it back to my hostel, he's an angel! Thank you so much bus travel for the most beautiful memories.

He will show you hidden gems, he is a great driver, he is funny and he knows so many stories and sagas, you will never be bored for a minute during the 11-12 hrs tour. It was the absolute highlight of our Iceland trip, worth every penny.
