The main highlight is def the snorkelling. The snorkel guide is good and the pics are awesome. The rest of the golden circle tour is however, pretty normal. Our driver is new (he admitted) and all he does is literally just drive us to each location, alight us for pics and onto the next. I was kind of expecting a guide that will follow us and introduce the different places to us but nope, we are left to explore on our own in each venue. The snorkelling made the entire tour awesome! A must try!!!

Det var en fantastisk tur. Guiden vår, Gulli, var fra Island og hadde mye kunnskap om Island som han delte med oss. Vi fikk mange flotte stopp og en sang på islandsk. Da vi kom fram fram til Silfra sto Kevin og ventet på oss. Han var flink til å forberede oss til snorkling. Vannet i Silfra er utrolig klart og sikten var fantastisk. Og vannet var 2 grader, men ikke kaldt når vi hadde tørrdrakt på. Det var en helt utrolig opplevelse og må bare oppleves.

This was a cool day trip! Definitely recommend, the snorkelling was a highlight and such an amazing experience. We were even provided with chocolate bars after which was a lovely surprise. We had Kevin as our guide - he was very patient and kind, he's a 10/10 Our driver (I think his name was Johan?) Was so lovely and insightful. the van was very comfortable (with charging capability) and we even had a small ice cream break which was delicious.
