This combo tour was a great way both to see major sites like Gullfoss and experience the snorkeling, which was the highlight. If you have ever experienced Yellowstone National Park USA geysers and hot springs, be prepared to be underwhelmed. However the hike to the hilltop overlooking the geyser field and The Valley behind it behind it was worth the stop itself.

Overall this tour was great. It really boils down to who your tour guide is to make or break the experience. Our driver/tour guide ( don’t remember his name) was more on the quiet side and didn’t really talk much. When he did talk, it was really hard to hear him on the bus and he didn’t really give a whole lot of information about the the places we stopped at. The highlight of this tour was snorkeling between the tectonic plates. Our guide David was very energetic, fun and knowledgeable. He and his crew were very helpful and efficient with putting on and taking off the dry suits and making sure everyone was comfortable. He also took tons of photos and sent them the same day. As a side note, don’t wear jeans if you are planning on this excursion. Thermals and leggings are a must. The water is cold but you will get used it. This was so worth it.

We had a great day with Sven driving us around and Xavi guiding us in Silfra. The tour is very well organised and is definitely a must-do in Iceland! Silfra snorkeling in a dry suit is amazing, I hardly doubt you would have such experience anywhere else in the world! Don't be afraid: it's not (that) scary, not (that) cold and not (that) wet as you would imagine!
