I never saw a landscape alike! I am totally touched when I saw the mountain, the glacier, the spring during the tour. The guilder is a gentle, nice and good at talking.

I went on this tour with two friends in September. The bus was a good size and they didn't try to cram too many people in. The tour guide was not only friendly and professional, but was a wealth of knowledge and did everything he could to make us feel comfortable. Some people on our tour were a bit difficult but our guide handled it wonderfully and they did not disturb the rest of the group. The guide went out of his way to try to avoid rain to the extent that he could. As a result we ended up having blue skies for each stop on the trip - all beautiful/breathtaking. We tried two other tour companies and preferred GeoIceland. Highly recommended.

many views on the way and the Jökulsárlón is awsome

This was an amazing experience. The seals swimming around the bay were so cute. My luggage was delayed so the nice people at the tour lent me a warm jacket from the lost and found :) Let's prevent global warming and preserve the beautiful Icelandic nature!

The landscape and the boat tour were magic! We came from Costa Rica and the glaciers are not commun in our country. The sense of humour of the guide was a good sample of Icelandic philosophie. We recommend this trip to all visitors! and hold your camera ready to shoot every little detail you could see when the bus are driving.

I never saw a landscape alike! I enjoyed the trip a lot and met nice people on the tour, which is great when traveling solo. One advice: try to pick a seat on the driver's side on the bus. The view is better there ;)

this tour was great, we had limited time in Iceland but really wanted to see the glacier lagoon. this tour took us there in one day, and it was amazing. the most beautiful place i have seen. if you have the chance, go there.
