What people are saying about Reykjanes Lighthouse

Very nice tour, lovely guide. Tommie and his driver mister T are well educated and made sure everyone was having a good time with putting safety first. When needed they acted seriously but for the most part they were joking and laughing around with all the people who joined. Saw more than just the volcano which was an extra plus. Definitely recommended for everyone who want to see the volcano, since it is not too pricey and you get more than just a volcano hike. Thanks for this simply lovely trip!

Tommy, our guide, was great! Very knowledgeable and cares for the safety of his group. We didnt have the best weather but it was still a great time and we would do it again. We didnt have great visibility seeing the volcano so he cut that short and let us add a stop or two on the trip. Very worth it!!

Our driver was amazing. Informative, engaging , responsible and considerate. Could have asked for a better day!

It was very good tour. Unfortunately the volcano had stopped erupting for 5 days so we did not see it erupt.

The tour was organized and flexible at the same time.
