Beautiful tour with Magnus despite the morning fog. He was extremely friendly, full of information and was very thorough in making sure everybody was accounted for, knew the timings and locations of pick ups and reminding us of the best places to take bathroom breaks. pick up snacks and when to take our naps for the longer parts of the drive. The sights were incredible and he assigned the perfect amount of time for us to see everything but not be standing around for too long in the cold. Highly recommend this trip and it's value for money. The blue lagoon was a highlight and you receive quick admission and clear instructions. Can't recommend it enough.

The tour guide was informative, interesting and amusing. The sights were spectacular even when it started off pitch black and raining! We had time to do everything and the Blue Lagoon was a relaxing way to end the day.

The bus was cramped. The seats were very close together so your knees were pressed on the back of the seats in front. We sat in the back row which was a mistake as it was uncomfortable. As the bus was full there were four of us on the back row and we had to squeezed in. I had sore hips the next day from being so squashed. The bus journey was very uncomfortable. They need a more spacious bus. We did a south coast tour with another company the day before and I thought their bus was much better. Some stops felt like we had too much time, and others not enough. For the above reasons I would not recommend this company. I was disappointed but rate it average as did enjoy some of the stops. Regarding the stops themselves - the blue lagoon was the highlight. I liked the crater and the geyser. I found the stop for the tectonic plates boring and the gullfloss waterfall was ok but there are better ones in Iceland.

The trip was great, the host was knowledgeable and friendly. The day was slightly tainted by losing Bruno who failed to follow the clear instructions of when and where our pick up was! This cost us valuable time subsequently and is something to bear in mind. The Blue Lagoon is a perfect way to end the day.

Christina our tour guide was amazing. This was an experience I will never forget. She surprised us by visiting an ice cream shop and also a farm where we could see horses! She was super informative and tried to help us see the northern lights. Glad we did this and the blue lagoon was so relaxing. My husband had to go to the bathroom and she stopped for him. He also lost his phone on the bus and getting it the next day was such an easy process.

Fantastic trip and a fantastic guide Yonas ( i think thats how you spell it) was fantastic and really made the trip even more special than it already was. We went on a day when there was a thick layer of fog but even with low visability the sights are fantastic. The golden waterfall it one of the highlighta of our whole trip. And the blue lagoon at night is a once in a life time experience! However the real reason the trip was as good as it was, was purely down to our guide Yonas hes fantastic really nice man with lots of knowledge about the local geology and just a great guy and excellent at what he does a good tour guide really does make a good trip and he was fantastic! Thankyou Yonas!

We wanted to do a trip that covered most of the main sites and this one was absolutely perfect . Well organised comfortable and the driver Christina was one of the loveliest people we’ve met so far . She made sure everyone was looked after very enthusiastic and proud of her country and full of interesting facts. The places visited were all interesting and the time just flew by. We really made the most of the limited day time and even snuck in some extra spots thanks to the wonderful Christina . Everyone got to see and do what they did . Would recommend this tour.
