We had a fabulous time in Iceland even though the weather was quiet windy and probably the rainiest day in Iceland we managed to cover most places and well in time

The tour guide was also our driver and he was amazing, very funny, knowledgeable, helpful, everything! As for the lagoon itself.... Oh boy.... truly nature's masterpiece... This is definitely one of my highlights during my trip to Iceland. Mind you, the trip is very long (4-5 hours) but I tell you, it is very well worth it. I'll definitely visit Jökulsárlón again when I come back. I just know I will never get tired of this massive beauty! As for bathroom and food breaks, I assure you it is all well planned into smart stops along the way. This is definitely a trip you must not miss!

The guide is nice. The glacier lagoon is very worth to go although the long travelling time.

Tour guide keep checking the weather for us, introducing all beautiful waterfalls & offering help :) super nice :)

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.

Excellent! Although it's a long time travel, the glacier was quite worth to have a look!

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.

It was a really long day and the tour guide provided many info. In general the trip was good. Yet in the morning when the minibus picked us from the hotel something unpleasant happened. We were on time (7;00 am) when we went out the hotel but the driver was really grumpy and shouted that he had waited for a long time. Then on the way to picking other passengers he drove extremely fast and applied a lot of emergency brakes, besides that he also shouted to other passengers to "just go and sit inside" when they tried to ask something, which really left an unpleasant start for the tour. I sincerely suggest the company to pay attention to the service since Icelandic people are very nice in general. If it was not the driver in the morning the tour would be great. Also I understood that within one day we have a lot of plans so the time schedule seemed quite tight, but that's the same to all travel companies. If you want to explore the glacier lagoon and had an unique experience on the boat with the wonderful guide on the boat and try the one thousand years old ice, it will be the suitable tour.

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.
