    Great day with Walter. He was super friendly and knowledgable. Made the day really enjoyable. Very patient with all the questions from the group.

    An excellent trip- staff were brilliant- providing warm waterproof overalls, sick bags and peppermint tea! We saw 6 whales and lots of seabirds. I loved the fact our guide was a marine biologist as the commentary was really informative. I am not good on boats but I’m glad I went! They email you all the photos from the trip too so you can enjoy watching properly rather than through a phone lens!!!!

    This was the most amazing tour - awesome sights, great value for the money (especially considering how many admissions it included), and the best guide ever, Siggi. He was knowledgeable about all things Iceland & was hilarious! We had a very cold & rainy day, but he kept us energized & laughing the whole time. He went above & beyond in several ways; he even let a woman borrow the coat off his back because she couldn’t keep warm. I can’t say enough great things about Siggi or this tour!!!!

    Amazing trip with a fantastic driver/guide. Aevor kept us entertained throughout the trip with his love, knowledge of Iceland, humour and wit, not to forget the music. We thoroughly enjoyed the excursion and highly recommend it. Wild and beautiful landscapes, such a rich history.

    This was a great experience which I recommend anyone should do. The guides were excellent, knowledgeable and very friendly. Horses were well behaved. Beautiful country. Icelandic horses have unique gaits as well.
    We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and it was raining when we went.

    Unfortunately our trip on the speedboat was cancelled twice. The weather this week in Iceland was quite rainy and windy, so the trips were cancelled almost everyday. Luckily the tour operator was able to get us on a whale watching outing on a bigger boat. If you like to be busy all day, its probably best to have a backup activity in mind…just in case!

    Despite being quite late in the season at the end of April, our driver found us a great spot to have an excellent Northern Lights viewing. He had done all the preparations and knew to take us 1.5 hours north of Reykjavik. He took excellent photos of each of the group making a lovely lasting momento. Highly professional andrecommended

    Very well organized tour and Michał was such a great guide. He adapted to the weather changes seamlessly, kept everyone on track at all times, shared some interesting insights and knowledge, and of course took us to some great spots while also offering a couple of bonus events. We had the perfect amount of time at the stops and even though we did quite a lot, it didn't feel exhausting. Michał was calm and nothing felt rushed. I definitely recommend the tour and I hope you get Michał as your guide.

    It was cold overcast day. Our tour guide Kristina did an amazing job telling us the history of each stop! The views were magnificent. The recommendation for lunch was delicious too! Glima. The bus was also comfortable with wifi.

    Comfortable little bus, with good commentary from Magnus and well spaced stops. The 2 highlights in a great day of natural wonders were Gulfoss -well worth walking down to the edge of the falls and getting soaked - bring waterproof trousers as well as top! And finally the Sky Lagoon’s dramatic setting and swim up were perfect for easing down after a hard day’s sight seeing and we enjoyed getting to know some fellow passengers we bumped into. The Sky package and 7 step ritual worked well despite being pretty busy: the whole thing really did leave you feeling relaxed and tingly.
