    Had an incredible day with our guide, Petra. She was very knowledgeable, friendly, and even gave us Icelandic language lessons! The tour was well-paced, even with the short December daylight hours. My partner and I loved every minute of it: small groups, beautiful scenery, sagas, and more. At the end of the tour, Petra even offered restaurant suggestions for the rest of our visit. We followed one of her recommendations and it was FANTASTIC! Thanks for such a great adventure!

    A shame the weather was not brilliant so felt very reluctant to get out of the bus! Also felt that the windows steamed up so visibility was very poor from inside the vehicle! It was not until we did half the journey we realised why small buses were being used fir this trip. Also found the sound system very poor as could not understand nor heard the guide clearly

    Good tour but not the tour we had thought we had booked due to a breakdown of communication. Apparently East West had changed the itinery since we booked to include an extra two stops ( with increasing daylight hours). This was good but the home cooked diner which had had such good reviews had changed to a bread and soup lunch with a bit of swiss roll (not home made)...not that great and quite disappointing. I wish we had been informed about this beforehand as this was our last day in Iceland and would have been a nice end to the holiday. The 12 hour tour was completed in 10 hours probably due to the quick lunch .
