After doing some research before our trip to Iceland, I booked the South Coast tour based on the overall brilliant recommendations from fellow TripAdvisor users. The South Coast tour is 8-9 hours long: starting from around 8:30am hotel pick-up to drop-off at the hotel around 5:00pm. But if you are in a hurry or have other schedule straight after the tour, just let the guide know! The pre-trip e-mail communications with Gunnsi who I believe owns or co-owns the tour group was very clear, making my trip arrangement much easier.
Alexia was our guide. There were only 2 couples in this tour, so we had a really good time, customized to our needs. Alexia is very knowledgeable and professional. We talked about many topics, from Icelandic history to language, politics, to food and lifestyle in the car. We learnt about which town has more teenagers who have bleached-hair and drive fancy cars.
The weather in Iceland was really changeable. We started off with a snow storm and ended in the south coast with brilliant sunshine. Around the waterfall that we can walk behind (Seljalandsfoss), I was so frightened by the slippery icy walkways. But Alexia was there to literally hold my hand! The walk on glacier experience was once in a lifetime. The wind and waves in Vik on the south coast was also an experience - hold the cover of your camera tight or it will be blown away! We learnt that if you drop anything in the sea at Vik, the next stop is Antarctica!
I strongly recommend the south coast tour and you have to do it with Season Tours to get this personalized and relaxing service. The scenery is important, but it is the people who made it a memorable experience.
