    Wow, Iceland is incredibly beautiful. This tour covered all the types of geological areas; waterfalls, hot springs and the amazing lava formations at Lake Myvatn. There is a decent amount of bus travel to get to the sites, but worth it. Our guide was very informative and walked some of the sites with us to explain things in detail. He was always eager to answer any questions. There's some walking, but not too difficult or far.

    Great trip and the organisers stayed out longer than expected to make sure we saw the whales. There were 4 or 5 whales in one group and probably up to 10 in total.
    Everyone was very friendly and our spotter made sure that we were all aware of the whales around us before there were so many we could all see where they were !

    Well worth the money.

    Advice - we didn't need to go to the top deck for the first 30/45 minutes as it took some time before sighting whales and it was pretty cold.

    Although it looked a bit pricey it was worth every cent we paid!
    The merit of my high vote is our exceptional guide. I’d be happy to share with you his name, but unfortunately, we forgot it.
    His knowledge was, naturally, huge and he was accomplished as a guide should be. It was his fantastic sense of humor that won us! Other people in the van did not have the same taste, but the two of us were enjoying the tour better than any other tour in many, many years of traveling.
    Well-chosen itinerary, amazing sights, excellent guide... All that cruise passengers can hope for when getting off the cruise ship wishing to learn something about the country visited.

    RIB across the fjord was an absolute blast, and the whales were amazing. We saw several whales and one was really close. The guides were terrific too!

    Professional from start to finish. On time, easy to locate at the port, no worries about getting back to ship in timely manner. Dabba, our guide & driver, was very knowledgeable and was very clear about meet times and places at each stop. 100% recommend.

    Very small and worry free group going to the beautiful Godafoss. Tom was a very pleasant and knowledgeable guide. It was almost like having a private taxi there.

    So good to travel with a small group & go to so many places seeing all the waterfalls, geothermal area, lava formations etc, etc. The driver/guide made it so interesting & gave us some good explanations about the formations we were seeing. It was a very busy schedule but we would have not seen as much on any other tour. It was pretty late by the time we got lunch at 3pm, which was very welcome after a freezing cold, wet day.

    Driver was on time. He did his best to find the lights and explain the science behind them which was great. We saw the lights after the driver made an extra effort as the trip was about done when he spotted them over the water. We hightailed it to a bridge where the city lights were a little less intense. The Northern Lights were beautiful. My only gripe was that the driver wouldn’t put heat on in the van. Sure, we expect cold in Iceland when standing outside. Why no heat in the van is the big question.

    We have just completed a fantastic 8 day trip around Iceland. Our guide Gylfi did an amazing job at showing us around this most beautiful country.
    All the excursions were exceptional- ice caves, glacier hikes, Vok baths, lava caves,whale watching.
    We were busy every day and I feel we’ve seen the best of Iceland.
    Our bus was comfortable. Gylfi was an excellent driver. If we wanted to try an Icelandic dish he’d tell us the best place to try it!
    I can highly recommend this tour. Our group size was small enough to stop at small cafes etc.
    We have many great stories to tell!

    Our ship sailed here and couldn’t pass up the opportunity to see Godafoss. Beautiful scenery and views on both sides of the waterfall.

    We had a great full day on this tour. Our guide was fantastic and provided a ton of great info and stops along the way. She continually made recommendations on where to go to get the best views and on a couple of stops would drop us off and pick us up at another location so we wouldn’t need to walk down and back again. The guide even had time to make a secret stop, and that’s all I’ll say about that. Great day and we’ll recommended.
