The snorkelling was phenomenal! Though I was initially afraid of the cold, it wasn’t near as bad as I thought it would be! Our guides Anna and Victor were so awesome! They always made sure we were okay and taken care of! Silfra was beautiful and very surreal! We even got hot chocolate and a chocolate bar after! The Golden Circle was amazing as well! Our tour guide Tasil was so knowledgeable, friendly and funny! He even made some extra stops to make the experience that much more special! I would absolutely recommend this to travellers of Iceland!

Our guide Carlos was amazing! Super friendly, felt like you could’ve asked him anything, gave little stories/anecdotes about places we drove by. He made sure we were all comfortable and clear about the planning of the day. He left us just the right amount of time anywhere he stopped, he gave us options and let us choose what we liked to do the most (ended up doing both haha), and even stopped for surprises for us (feeding horses, …). Only reason I gave a 4 out of 5 stars is because the pictures of the snorkelling were super dissapointing (extremely blurry, probably won’t use even half of them…). But everything else was exceptional :)

We had a great time, Ronan was an excellent guide! Snorkeling was amazing as well as all of the other stops on the Golden Circle tour. We had ample time at each stop to take pictures, etc & never felt rushed. Lunch at the farm was delicious as well. I highly recommend!!
