Impressive basalt shapes at black beach, 2 wonderful waterfalls, loved going behind one, and sad and frightening to see the effect of global warming on the glacier. Wonderful guide sharing Icelands tales!

Spend the extra money on small group tour you will be happier

Great scenery and natural beauty. Great waterfalls, interesting glacier and black sand beaches…. But……spend the extra money to take a small group tour with max of 18-20. Bus with 61 was absolutely terrible. Took forever to load and unload. No personal interaction at all with tour guide. Day before we were on small group tour that was much more personalized and guide was very interactive

I was lucky to have such a great and very knowledgeable tour guide, Yona. She told us everything there is to know about every site we went and more. If we could choose our guide, without a doubt I would choose her each time. I highly recommend this tour, you will not regret it. The landscape is breathtaking!

This tour far exceeded my expectations! We saw two waterfalls, a glacier, the black sand beaches, columnar basalt formations, and a couple small caves. All beautiful! And we got a little bonus stop at a rocky oceanside viewpoint to see puffins. Our guide Jona absolutely made the trip! I was concerned about the amount of time on then bus, but Jona gave us fascinating information about the geology, history, and culture of Iceland along the drive. I learned so much! I definitely 100% recommend this tour.

Overall a very good experience, our guide Geri the Wolf even added an extra stop to see puffins. A big thanks also to Michal the Gladiator for driving us everywhere! A suggestion: maybe shorten the break times a bit (by 5-10 min) in order to extend the time spent at the landmarks?
