We've made the Dettifoss Grand Tour a few days ago, the 26th of July. That was our first tour during our week in Iceland, and I bet we'll never forget this 10 hour trip around the North of Iceland. We were four passengers on this tour, which contributed to establish a familial dimension to the trip. Our guide was just... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the Dettifoss Grand Tour and others with SBA. Inga our tour guide was fantastic and told us so much about the places we visited with real enthusiasm. Although this tour is 10 hours the time really does fly past. It is worth it to see Dettifoss as it's so spectacular to experience first hand. I booked a shorter... More

Had booked with Air Iceland so flew in from Reykjavik. Tour was well organised with a good guide, Inga. Saw the sights with not too difficult walking from the comfortable bus - but they ought to provide bottles of water given the long day and so few stops where one could get fed and watered

I got booked on this one when my tour with another company got cancelled last minute, and it was amazing! Tristan was a fantastic guide, and led an incredible tour. Better than anything I did in Reykjavik, and a far better guide. I would recommend this to anyone looking at a trip to Iceland

I booked this trip at short notice following a cancellation by another company, so I was relived to get to Akureyri and find Oskar waiting at the airport as promised. The trip covered lots of highlights around the Myvatn area. I couldn't believe that our group (5 passengers) were the only people at Godafoss when we arrived there! Oskar was... More

This trip was awsome despite the bad weather we had, the destinations are varied and beautiful (my favourite was the new lava field in Holuhraun). The guide, Trausti Bergland, is undoubtedly the best for this job!

We booked a tour at the last minute with SBA-Norduleid after we found out that other companies were full. We had read wonderful reviews about Oskar, and we were delighted when we found out early this morning that our driver and guide was Oskar. He has been with the company for one year. He was a journalist previously. We were... More

We took the day-long Deitfoss Grand Tour on an unusually cold and rainy Saturday in July. The scheduled stops highlight everything that make Iceland so special, from powerful waterfalls to mystical lava formations and bubbling geothermal springs spewing steam. We stopped for a surprisingly good lunch near the pseudo-craters. Unfortunately, our guide, a native of Iceland, seemed to have learned... More

We just spent the day on this amazing tour with SBA. The guide, Oskar, was exceptional! He was very knowledgeable and practical. He took us to all the top places to see around Lake Myvatn, made sure we had plenty of time to take photos, and answered all of our questions. He even took us back to our hotel when... More

Just spent a day trip in Lake Myvatn with SBA. In fact I just booked the trip quite suddenly on the same morning before departure, but SBA was still able to manage it so I appreciate that kind of flexibility. Secondly, this is another main point to bring out, is that the tourist guide Oskar Thor Halldorsson was absolutely helpful,... More
