This day trip was worth every penny. Igor, our tour rep, was amazing! Had so much knowledge about Iceland, and showed how much his country meant to him. He even threw in a few extra stops on the way! I loved this tour and highly recommend to anyone considering it!

This trip was amazing. Our tour guide Reynir was very informative and we had a great laugh along the way! You stop at the Golden Circle and see the Tectonic plates! I would say wrap up well as it was very cold and windy! Reynir provided ice grips for our shoes which I would recommend wearing! We then stopped at the Geysir which was amazing to watch and then onto waterfall. We had a few pit stops along the way which we got to see Icelandic horses! You finish off in the Blue Lagoon which was an amazing experience! 100% worth the money, it is a long trip so bring plenty snacks and water. There is also plenty toilet breaks along the way!

One of the best days of my life!! Iceland is absolutely beautiful and the day tours are the best way to see all its beauty. I loved every minute and felt that I had already got my money’s worth after the first two stops but the day kept getting better! My only advice is that we didn’t get to the blue lagoon until sundown so I’d recommend visiting the blue lagoon during the day to get to enjoy the color light blue water.
