What a great trip! Not only was the guide fantastic but it was great to see Iceland and its nature. I felt there was enough time for each activity. So much information was given at each activity and during the busdrive. I liked the fact that the tour was in a minibus as it made it more personal.

Great day and tour. we wanted a shorter duration tour and 6 hours seemed to fly by. We spent enough time at each location and despite the weather we really enjoyed what we saw. Our tour guide was excellent and kept us safe even though the road conditions were horrendous. The only thing I would say was that we wasn't aware that we had to pay 400ISK each to get into the volcano crater which is only like £2.50 so nothing and the experience of walking around the crater and down to the lake at the bottom was well worth it!

We went in January and it was a very bad weather that day. Some other companies cancelled the tour and we have people from other agencies join us. The tour was very organized. Puntual. The driver/tour guide Makram was very kind and informative. In the middle of the tour some other people driving a rental car had problems with the car and the snow blocking the road so we had to stop and our Guide was working in the cars outside in the brutal weather, trying to keep us Dave and moving. He was very experienced and made sure we were save and protected. It was a good day. Beautiful places and great food in the stops.
