Pickup begins 30 minutes prior to the tour start time. Please be ready and on the lookout for a green Smartbus.

Pickup is available from most hotels, hostels, and guesthouses. In the city center, some areas are restricted to buses, and therefore buses can only stop at nearby bus stops.

Really good day out! A lot of driving in between each place you visit but the view on the other end is well worth it. The only negative I would say is that the drivers are not very informative when you get to the bus station especially when you’re swapping over to go to the lagoon. The tour guid on the tour was amazing, she really knew everything about each area and the surrounding areas.

This was such a great tour! I had Karen as my guide and she was awesome - knowledgeable, funny, and super nice! There was the perfect amount of time at each stop to take pictures, get souvenirs, etc. I would have preferred a little bit more instruction as to actually getting on the bus - I didn't get an email or anything saying that pick up would be on a transit bus and that I would change to a tour bus afterwards (same with the Blue Lagoon - I thought that I would be on the same bus the whole day).

We travelled as a couple on this trip and loved it. It was an early start but this just made sure we got to see the sights at the best times. Everywhere we went was just before the busy period so it was relatively quiet at each stop. Our tour guide was really nice and let us know exactly when to be back on the bus to go to the next place. They told you where food was available and recommended dishes. There was enough time at each stop to admire the views and such which meant the day never felt like it was dragging. They drop you back at the terminal but then go straight to the blue lagoon from there - bring your swimwear with you at the start of the day as we thought there was a break back in town where we could get this - there was not, we had to hire swimwear from the blue lagoon which was fine and surprisingly affordable. The blue lagoon pick up was 15 minutes past every hour so you could choose when to go. Overall, the day was organised well and enabled us to see a lot in a day!
