These people were completely knowledgeable and 100 professional. Don’t be fooled by other knock offs. These guys were the real deal. It was completely apparent how much they care for these animals. We left there feeling like we made friends. 100 percent recommend.

Do you mean a pick up by the horse owners? They do pick ups from different locations in Reykjavic. Did you mean KEF airport?

You can book a tour that includes the meal or one without. We chose the "horses and healthy food" tour. Hope that helps!
