    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 .

    The landscape of the tour is simply uniquely beautiful. Sometimes it would be nice to have a little more time at the locations, but with the tight schedule on that day, this is probably not possible. We had a lot of fun, the places we visited are simply great and the break including lunch at the horse ranch was also a highlight. The comfortable minibus wasn't that comfortable though, at least when you had to sit in the back row. Almost no legroom and one seat was broken, so my girlfriend had to lie in the seat. The other seats were obviously better, so hope that you don't have to sit in the back row;) Otherwise the tour was really great. Snaefellsnes is an absolute must on any trip to Iceland
