    This tour was really enjoyable. The stops were at great locations and me and my partner really enjoyed them all. My only criticism would be that sometimes, more specifically at Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss we didn’t really have enough time to do everything we wanted to do there. Particularly, at Seljalandsfoss we didn’t have time to go to another waterfall at that stop that was 500m away.

    Really fantastic tour around south iceland. A 1.5 hour bus journey to reach the first stop but completely worth it as the glacier is phenomenal! Our favourite experience in the three days we spent in Iceland. All other attractions are extremely beautiful too. The tour guide was a lovely young lady (I’m sorry I can’t remember her name!!) and she was so informative, enthusiastic and the love for her country shone through. We loved the tour and the thick snow made it even better

The sights are absolutely breathtaking and the guides are extremely helpful and friendly, and made the trip even more enjoyable. I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Iceland!
