What an amazing day and an amazing experience!!!
Siobhan was our guide on the Golden Circle tour and was excellent. She was very friendly and knowledgeable. There were only two other people in my tour group apart from me and it was great having such a small group. It made the day feel more like scooting around with friends than an official tour - albeit it one where one of the friends was a very knowledgeable and professional tour guide!!! Siobhan was able to adapt the day to what we wanted - for example, we had a little detour to look at a church and some elf houses!!! It was great having such a personal touch to the tour and I am sure made all the people we saw on the big coach tours very envious!
At Silfra I joined another group for the dive as the other people in my tour group were snorkelling instead. AJ was our guide for the dive and was also very friendly and helpful. Most of my previous diving has been in tropical locations so it was great to have a bit of extra help and advice for adjusting to the cold! The water temp was 3 degrees C and very cold but worth it. Silfra is beautiful and Dive Iceland are a very professional organisation. The briefing was thorough, the equipment was well maintained (I brought my own equipment but everybody else used Dive Iceland's) and most importantly, it was fun!!!
After I rejoined my original group to continue the Golden Circle tour.
The Golden Circle is a must see in Iceland and I would recommend going with Dive Iceland to anyone. If you don't want to dive Silfra you can snorkel and the experience is well worth it and also will ensure that you have a much better experience than with one of the huge tour buses.
I found the entire experience with Dive Iceland to be very friendly, efficient and helpful from the point of my initial inquiries when planning my trip, right up to the day itself.
