Amazing tour with Maria of nice tours. Awesome all day adventure - with lots of information and humor to go along. Kept us entertained all day. Saw all the amazing sites. Never made us feel rushed but was able to see everything promises and more. Highly recommend this all day tour if staying a short time in Iceland and don’t want to drive.

Our guide Nikola was fantastic. Great fun and very knowledgeable. The tour was the highlight of the trip. Every stop was better than the last. We had plenty of time to explore each place. The bus was very comfortable. Would recommend anyone book this.

The whole trip was great, sites were awesome! Our driver and guide provided many great details and information about the sites that we visited with addition to the Icelandic culture, history and preserving of the environment. Highly recommend!
