Simon was our guide and he was super knowledgeable about the volcano, the area and Iceland. We couldn't have gotten any better guide. We had a fantastic day despite the poor weather with loads of rain. He even had a little traditional Icelandic snack for us on the summit which was very welcome. He helped people who were a bit slower and had extra clothes with him if people were cold. This was an excellent tour. We only booked the half day tour and as we were not enough we were upgraded for free for a full day tour. We enjoyed every minute of it.

This trip was amazing, especially our tour guide Omar. He is very knowledgeable about the sites and loves telling stories about the history. He was very comical and had funny jokes on the trip and kept us entertained the entire bus trip. As for the views, breath taking. The hot springs, cooled magma and crater are a must see when traveling.

Our guide Josip was very good, attentive to our needs, very professional. The best of all the guides met

Great day out with our fun,informatie guide.Hike was challenging enough (and weather was fantastic)

Except for the weather, the trip was great, including a picnic at the volcanic crater
