    Very friendly guide/driver. Explained many details about nature, society, history. Very good timing, we never had any pressure.
    Altogether, an excellent and enjoying one day outing. Would always repeat it.

    Seeing the humpback whale, a magical moment. Also got to see minke whales and dolphins. The puffins are fun.
    The guides were very friendly and so knowledgeable.

    An excursion with a passionate and professional team. Thanks to their efforts we saw several Humpbacks and Minke Whales. Also very nice that they take free photos during every trip

    This was our last day in Iceland and this tour was a fantastic end to the holiday.
    Our tour guide Cristina was such a great guide, so informative and knowledgeable and went through extra mile with the details of local information about life, history, nature, geology and so much more.
    It is an action packed tour, lots to see at the visits as well as during the coach journey.
    We did have a beautiful sunny day which helped with the scenery and the visits of course.
    We learned a lot about this beautiful and fascinating country and we would love to return.

    Nice Daytrip to the golden circle. Everything just in time. Very kind and nice guide. Highly recommended trip.
    But the coach on this day was much to small!

    Great tour, Iga guiding and Tomek driving are really great combo. We were able to see and learn a lot about Iceland, Icelanders, history and culture. Iga used few personal stories to draw a nice picture and present us not only with facts, but also personal insights.

    I did this tour on my first night in Iceland, and even though we only caught a glimmer of the Northern Lights about halfway into the tour, it was a fantastic evening nonetheless. The sky was really clear and there was a full moon out, so even simply being outside in that kind of beautiful quietude, with the moon shining on the snow on the ground and nobody else around (at least until other tour groups showed up) was its own kind of magical. The bus was well heated, with USB outlets above each seat, and was not completely full, allowing for social distancing between guests. The tour leader did his best trying to find us good places to catch sight of the Northern Lights, but it just wasn't our night; the company even contacted me the next day to reschedule another Northern Lights tour for an evening later that week, but then that evening's tour was canceled due to cloud cover. Still, I appreciated the gesture, and don't consider my money to have been wasted; I would gladly travel with this tour group again on my next trip to Iceland. A note for travelers in general that even though it was November--so not quite yet the dead of winter--it was still really cold out, so wear proper cold weather clothes otherwise even being outside for a couple of minutes will feel miserable (I was all layered up because I grew up in Canada and knew that kind of cold, but others weren't so ready and I could tell by the end of the tour they were kind of over it for reasons not the tour guide's fault.). Thanks for a great trip!!

    It was fun to leave the driving to someone else while getting to experience the Golden Circle. First stop was Thingvellir National Park. Our second stop was Geysir as wella as lunch. Third stop was Gulfloss (Gullfossi) waterfall. Fourth stop was the Kerid Crater. Last stop was the Blue Lagoon. All of the sites were amazing and our guide, Oskar, did a great job of directing us and highlighting things for us. They Geysir/lunch stop was a bit rushed as there were long lines to get food. We (my 13 year old grandson and I) appreciated the unplanned stop between the crater and the Blue Lagoon where we got to a) go to the bathroom, b) see 2 tectonic plates up close and personal, and c) get tasty treats from a great bakery!

    The Blue Lagoon was a great way to end our tour. The 11 hours flew by and we really enjoyed ourselves.

    Suggestions: it was a rainy day and I recommend wearing rain gear. I had a rain hat and jacket but not rain pants. Big mistake! My pants got soaked at our second stop and I ended up buying rain pants at Geysir. They're fabulous and an expensive souvenir!

    Blue Lagoon: this has nothing to do with the tour but with the visit to the Blue Lagoon. I recommend bringing a hair brush (for afterwards) and flip flops or water shoes. Also, you'll want to keep your hair out of the water. Oskar recommended putting conditioner in your hair which was an excellent suggestion. Also, bring something to transport your wet swimsuit.

    Tour suggestion: our hotel pick up was rather convoluted. Interestingly, we tried to board the bus with Oskar but we were not on his pick up list. Another entity/driver picked us up and eventually delivered us to Oskar's bus. I don't understand why this happened but it was a little strange.

    Absolutely amazing experience, I would recommend to anyone traveling to Iceland! The staff were friendly, helpful and informative. I had no prior riding experience and they made me feel so at ease! The horses were beautiful, it was a one of a kind experience.
    My favorite activity of our entire trip - it was such a wonderful day all around!!

    This is a long tour at 14 hours and most of it is in a bus. Trip is a total of 800 kilometres but it’s worth it. Plenty of stops to see waterfalls and sights, but the lagoon with the icebergs makes the trip worth it

    This was a fantastic afternoon. It was all really well organised, the guides were really brilliant and even had a snowball fight with our kids. I would definitely do this again if I came back to Iceland-so much fun

    Don't expect too much like a bunch of whales jumping next to the ship. The whales are wild animals and not tamed dogs that rush to you as soon as they see people. You'll be lucky if you see a couple of dolphins, a few water sprouts and a bit of a whale tail. Expecially if the ship is crowder also because there is a full class of british kids on school trip since the place for standing on the front or on the end is not unlimited. However cool experience if you have never been on the sea yet.

    Tip#1: If you want to visit the "Whales of Iceland" museum, go there first - they will give you discount for the whale watching.
    Tip#2: You'll almost definitelly see also puffins on the sea so I'm glad I didn't buy also the "Puffin watching Tour" as I planned because it would be senseless
    Tip#3: If you are at least a little motion sick, don't be ashamed to really take the sickness pill, it is really not pleasant the first half if you're not used to it

    AMAZING!!!
    Cannot say enough great things about this experience. We were able to see so many incredible landmarks in one day. Gustav our tour guide was so kind, knowledgeable, and helpful. The home cooked meal was a one of a kind experience that I would recommend to anyone visiting Iceland. You will not be disappointed with this tour!
