Our guide was great and it really made a difference having a small group where you could ask questions and get some real perspective on almost anything Icelandic. The snowmobiling was well organized though up on the glacier the ice made it interesting. We hit the top just as a rainbow opened over the glacier just above the cloud line. Perfect. A longer run on the snow mobiles would have been better, but with so many newbies it was just the right amount of adventure.

We took our tour with Hjörleifur Kristjánsson and as it turned out to be a private tour as we were the only ones booked on it for that day. Hjörleifur was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Iceland and what it had to offer. Hjörleifur (AKA Mr Adventure) took us to the waterfall, tectonic plates, geyser and finished with snowmobiling which was excellent. Hjörleifur very kindly took his balaclava off to give my wife who was suffering from extreme cold to her head. Would recommend this tour with this guide anytime and will definitely be booking with them again when we return!

Had such a fantastic day, was travelling by myself but our guide was great and got everyone involved. We did the waterfall, geysers, tectonic plates and finished with snowmobiling! So much fun. Cruising around Iceland in what I called the monster truck was pretty fun as well! Great tour, well run, fantastic guide!

We booked the golden circle & snowmobiling tour. There were six of us in our party. We were collected from our hotel by Kiddi our guide, in a huge black truck. Great fun driving around all day and going off road. Kiddi was an excellent guide - very informative and happy to answer our constant questions. He made every effort to make our day special including adding a couple of extra stops including one at a geothermal vent at near a power station. A surreal experience being surrounded by gases and steam from over 2km down. The snowmobiling was well run and a lot harder than it looks! This tour is more expensive than the usual coach tours but it was well worth the extra expense and I recommend this company whole-heartedly.

Was picked up by Kiddy in his tricked up Ford truck with 4 other fun seekers. Great commentary all the way, saw the sights of Gullfoss en route. Kitted out in warm gear and on to the Langjokull Glacier, given a quick lesson in how to drive a snowmobile then it was off we go. Awesome experience driving around the glacier, stopped and climbed through an ice cave! Back to the truck and home via Geysir. Great day out, highly recommended, top marks to Kiddy, a guy who knows his stuff and has a passion for his Iceland!
