Great tour guide ! We were a few only, really nice not to be in a big bus all day. We went to great location, and had interesting information from our tour guide. Would definitely recommend and come back again !

The tour was nice, the guide was friendly and informative. Our bus was not even half way full which was nice. The locations were beautiful. We did a 3-Day tour prior to this that was full of amazing activities like the ice cave, Glacier hiking, Diamond Beach, etc. so I think after seeing those locations these locations weren't quite as awe-inspiring. However, if we would have gone here first I probably would have loved it. All in all the tour itself was nice and no matter where you go this country is beautiful!

Excellent and highly recommended. First you're on a bus with a few stops to see some nice waterfalls and scenery. Then you get into an repurposed military missle launching vehichle that is used to drive up the glacier. The views are amazing. Once at the top, you are guided through the longest ice tunnel in the world. The tunnel is a man made labyrinth built inside the glacier. It's fascinating. Our glacier guide, Kevin did a great job of explaining and informing the group of every detail the tunnel had to offer, and managed to keep the attention of the group, using humor and wit. Our othe tour guide "Hershey" although a little hard to understand his English due to his accent, was very knowledgeable and overall very friendly. It's a long trip but if you come to Iceland, do this tour.

Awesome trip! Enjoyed the gorgeous nature, vulcano's, mountains and snow. Gus our guide knew a lot about the history and told us nice facts about the island. I would recommend this trip for sure!

It is rainy in the whole day. meanwhile i saw the typical Iceland and tasted the credible fish soup.
