We had a great trip! Our guide, Mika was outstanding. He shared his vast knowledge of EVERYTHING from nature, culture, geology and sports to politics with us. He was humorous, and to that extent was good at giving the experience of a good time despite a tight program with many exciting stops along the way. We definitely recommend this tour!

First time in Iceland and was happy to do this tour at the onset. Magnoosen, was our guide/driver and was very informative. He was good natured and tried to be comical. We were picked up promptly. He drove a minibus that had tight fitting seats and USB ports and WiFi. Sufficient time was spent on each site and there were several stops for bathroom breaks. Iceland is just a geological wonder. I’m in awe.

This tour was incredible the 5 of us really enjoyed it and it was a very special and unique family experience. The weather stayed kind for the most part which was a plus, but the guide was outstanding, his name was Halldor and he was humorous, knowledgeable and very helpful. We learnt a lot about all the different aspects of the tour from him and he really made it very interesting and interactive. Would recommend!
