Excellent tour!

Had a great helicopter tour of the volcanic area outside Reykjavik. The guide was knowledgeable and attentive. After landing at a spot to checkout the geography closer, he helped by 86 year mother around. Felt very confident he wasn’t going to let her injure herself. He really impressed me!
