So happy we did the ice cave tour. Our tour guide, Andrew, was the absolute best! He got us to the caves before the crowd and went above and beyond to show us amazing spots that were not a part of the tour but he knew if because of his experience with the cave. Very funny and cool guy too! We were very happy with this tour.

AMAZING and a MUST BOOK!! Dani was our tour guide and he was nothing but amazing!! Everyone was so helpful and knowledgeable from Veronika who answered any and all my ridiculous question prior to the tour and Dani for taking amazing pictures throughout! This cave is breathtaking! My husband and I drove from Laugarvatn which is almost 5 hours away to see this cave, but it did not disappoint! If your wondering what cave or company to use THIS IS THE ONE!!

the tour guide is nice and friendly, although the crystal cave is small this year and the cave is crowed of people, this is the easiest cave to get to. But if you have plenty of time in Iceland, this is not the best cave to come to.

Excursion géniale

Nous avons adoré cette excursion, c'était magic. Cependant nous avions réservé en amont avec un guide français que nous n'avons pas vu.
Muy bien

Nuestro guía en español Endika fue muy simpático y atento, también otro guía hizo un montón de fotos. La cueva alucinante, aunque la esperaba más grande. El super jeep en el que nos llevaron chulísimo. Muy recomendable.
