* A traveler said: "It was worth every Euro we spent for it. We got a lot of interesting information and got a great impression of the glacier."
* A traveler said: "Excellent tour - very exiting and a must do during your visit in Iceland. Being taken inside a real ice cave from the biggest Iceberg in Europe is an amazing experience. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, the information provided during the tour helped to appreciate it even more. I would do it again without a doubt."
* A traveler said: "What a fun trip!! The ice caves are just amazing the colours, the structures and all the shapes they carve out. The guide was very funny, he let us stay as long as we wanted. We got some great pictures and got to experience a true wonder on this trip. Would highly recommend this one it is worth it!"

* A traveler said: "This was THE highlight of our trip to Iceland. Please do go on this tour and support the Hali farm business and family, who have been farming for 3 centuries and now also add local, high-quality tours to their farming and hotel. Versteinn was our guide and he is part of the family, very knowledgeable and experienced. A few tips: a. Bring your own crampons if you have extra large feet as they only have one size. My partner is a size 15 and we brought our own. b. Try the food and local Vatnajokull beer at the Hali hotel - the food is from the farm and the beer is made from iceberg water and local Arctic thyme and is only available locally from Skafatell to Hofn. c. Consider staying a couple of nights in the area, there's a lot to do and you maximize your chance of getting to see the ice caves. We only stayed one night and were fortunate because it started to rain and we had the last available tour. The next day's tours were cancelled due to rain. d. There were two tours this year, one at the Crystal ice cave that we went to that is very easy and a more gruelling one that consists of a one hour glacial hike to the cave. The tours change every year as the ice cave formations change yearly."
