This was the best among the day tours! We have experienced the Blue Lagoon, Golden Circle, South Iceland but this tour toped it all! The tour guide/driver really took his time and very informative. He also made extra stops for taking photos. The way to the western coast was amazing!! From lava fields, to mountains, to fjords, random waterfalls and rivers and to the main sight-seeing destinations.. The best untouched nature we have ever seen.

This was a great tour. The sites and views were amazing. Also, our tour guide Gummi was fantastic! The only problem with the tour is that it got us back 40 mins past the tours stated end time. This caused a problem with our booked dinner reservations. Other than that, everything was great.

Positives: Excellent day trip. It was very cold and icy which added to the experience. Great scenery. Efficient and professional service. Negatives: There were no USB charge ports on the bus although I was able to plug in a charger at the lunch stop. The windows of the bus were quite dirty so photography on the bus was a bit tricky. The heating on the bus could have been a bit better but it was a particularly cold day. But all round superb day out!
