Amazing experience
, Jun 2021
Excellente day trip with our guide Mr Howser from Bustravel Iceland. We were bathing in Icelandic history and Sagas while driving through a beautiful landscape with stops at gullfoss and other waterfalls. Jokulsarlon is an amazing and unique place, what ever the weather might reserve you. And so is diamond beach. I highly recommend this trip.

Another must-do in the land of fire and ice is to see the icebergs floating in Jökulsárlón, maybe a seal swimming or just laying on the ice too and then have a walk on the diamond beach where the contrast of shining pieces of ice glittering on the black sand of the beach will give You some of the best foto opportunities.
Well worth it!

It was a once in a lifetime experience. Both Lasma and Emil were excellent guides, and I appreciated the information they shared during the trip.

Unforgettably !!!
, Feb 2020
Great ride. With lots of stops for review photos. Waterfalls, lava fields, cozy places in the mountains. Well, of course, the Ice Lagoon itself. It is fantastic ! Special thanks to the guide and driver of our trip, Howser. He loves his job and is happy to share his knowledge. You will not regret if you choose this trip. Because the impressions with you will remain for life. And you, I'm sure. fall in love with this country. Vika
The glacier lagoon
, Jan 2020
I listened to the others reviews saying what you see on this tour in unlike anything you’ve ever seen - and they’re right - the glacier lagoon was incredible. However the tour itself was just “meh.” Our tour guide was nice, but constantly repeated the same fact 3, 4 times in a row. It was a long drive one the bus just to see the glacier lagoon. If i had to do it over again I would have gone in a small group or a Jeep. The other tours we did were small groups and we were able to make more stops along the way. This was way too structured for my liking. But if that’s your thing, go for it!

Superb lagoon. Pity about the coach!

The lagoon and the stops on the way were superb, but all this was spoiled by an unbearably hot coach, making for a very, very uncomfortable 10 hour drive. The party on this trip was mainly Asian and apparently the tour staff said they have to keep the heating on for them! Which left the minority of European and USA travellers in melt down. Would recommend the trip if the coaches are not kept like a furnace. I did not think I would be coming to Iceland and be so hot!
Wonder Tour
, Dec 2019
We spent a wonderful day with Bustravel Iceland (booked through Viator) for this Glacier Lagoon tour. The pickup was right on time. Our bus driver and tour guide, Heigi, was well organized and experienced and made our long bus ride very comfortable. In mid November daylight was short. Heigi tried to make as many stops as possible for us to take breathtaking photos while getting us into the Glacier Lagoon in time. The views of the Glacier Lagoon and Diamond Beach were surreal and unbelievable and we enjoyed our tour very much. I would recommend this bus tour service whilst in Iceland.  
Simply amazing

Guide was extraordinary. Weather was perfect. We had an amazing time. Would highly recommend Bus Travel Iceland.
Take. This. Trip!

We loved this tour. Yes, you get up early - but it's worth every second and every penny. The sites you will see are incredible and unlike anywhere else. Our guide was very good - he did talk a bit too much on the way back and wouldn't let us rest (when it was dark and you couldn't see anything anyway) - but otherwise, his knowledge of Iceland was wonderful and he did all he could to make our experience memorable. Tip: sit on the left side of the bus if you can - someone else wrote that and I took that advice and I'm so glad! Also, don't worry about the the time of year you take this tour - your experience will be unique. Even with little daylight, you can still cover so much. Some in other reviews wrote that the shops and foods were nothing to write home about. Well, you're in the middle of Iceland, not New York City - - and just come prepared. Bring snacks or there's plenty at the places you stop at. Ample time to use the washroom and stretch your legs, too. It's a long trip - but as someone else wrote - Just do it!! We're so glad we did!!

Guide was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. Shared his knowledge very enthusiastically. Visited all places mentioned in the booking and the day was very enjoyable. The lagoon and the diamond beach was just out of this world. So beautiful and highly recommend.
