I can't recommend this tour enough. As a first-timer to Iceland, this is pretty much the absolute best way to see the country! The itinerary is jam-packed and that's a good thing because there is so much to see!

Our guide/driver, Ingo (his nickname) was incredible. He was like a human wikipedia page for Iceland! He's an expert at the geography, nature, science, culture, philosophy, religion, food - everything Iceland. We learned so much from him and he made the hours in the minibus fly by.

Every stop we made was a jaw dropper. From waterfalls to black sand beaches to icebergs on beaches to blue ice caves - if Iceland had a greatest hits album, this tour would be it!

I also want to give a huge shoutout/thanks to our guide for the Blue Ice Cave. His name was Reiner (sorry if I spelled that wrong) and was a true adventurer! He was so patient with the slowest in our group, had an amazing knowledge of the area, and was always pointing out the best places for photos. Great guy with an awesome appreciation for the natural world.

All in all, this 2-day tour was one of the best ways to experience Iceland! I'm so glad we did it!

Ice cave and diamond beach sightseeing made me memorable, and the rainbow with ice glacier that Mica took us to see was really grand.

There were so many beautiful sights, our guide Christina took us to stops with really good views, and also stopped for us to see the northern lights. She's friendly and engaging, and had a great music selection as well. We had Benny guide us through the ice caves, he was fun to talk to and very knowledgeable, and helped take pictures for us. All in all, amazing tour.

The destinations are one of the best! The distance and travel is a bit long but all worth it. We were amazed with the falls, diamond beach, ice cave (of course!).

The guide, JK, was also very patient and accomodating.

I'm totally satisfied with my Iceland travel because of this tour!!!

This is the only tour I booked while in Iceland. I had a couple days to kill before my friend arrived and saw pictures of this blue ice cave. Based on reviews I selected NiceTravel and I'm so glad I did. Communication regarding pick up was clear and easy to follow. Our guide was full of great information and an absolute pleasure. I've waited too long to write this review and cannot remember his name. I can't count how many times I've shared tidbits of information with friends and family that I learned from him. Accommodation was nice. They did a nice job making the long drive interesting with beautiful waterfall stops along the way. The Blue Ice Cave hike had a different guide who was all so lovely. The cave in person and the cave and pictures are different but both breathtaking. In-person expect a milkier blue than what you see in pictures. Highly recommended.

Unbelievably AMAZING experience!!!! This was, by far, the best part of our Iceland trip. Our guide, Christina, was THE BEST! She was so fun, played great music to fit the mood and made extra stops at viewpoints and for ice cream. She made an already unforgettable trip even more fantastic.
The scenery was STUNNING! Despite the cold and windy weather, we had a blast. Wonderful photo opportunities, Wi-Fi on the van and great stops for food. The hotel was super cute and quaint and we were even able to see a reindeer. Our favorite part was the journey to the ice cave and Diamond Beach. By the end of the trip our entire group became great friends. This trip far exceeded our expectations; it's a must for any Iceland trip!!!!! We would definitely recommend!!!

David is my lucky guy. I finally got to see northern lights this time 🥰

I've been to Iceland before, but David and Nicetravel gave me the best experience thus far. Most of the things I saw were new to me 🤗

There is no doubt that the mother nature in Iceland is amazing itself. Our 2-day-long travel in southern iceland was even more fantastic thanks to Christina. Throughout the whole two days, Christina has always been caring, funny, friendly, and passionate. She definitely took the best photos ever. She filled up the bus with perfect music when we are excited and was kind enough to play some soothing songs when we need some rest during the ride. We had a great deal of fun and unforgettable experience thanks to her. If your guide introduces herself as Christina in the bus, I guarantee that your tour will be just as perfect as ours.
