This was an excellent tour which i can't rate highly enough. If i am honest, out of all the tours i had booked, this was the tour that i wasn't expecting much from and wasn't as excited about. However the tour was so informative and made so fun and entertaining by our lovely guide Silvia. Compared to other brewery tours i've been on, this one gives you lots of booze so i recommend eating well beforehand!
I had booked the 3.5 hour trip believing that the 2.5 hour trip meant that you spend a lot less time looking our for whales however its worth noting that you actually spend MORE time watching the whales on the 2.5 hour. This is because its a smaller boat almost like a speedboat and you get to the area for whale watching in about 15 minutes as opposed to 45 minutes on the 3.5 hour tour which goes very slowly!
On the first tour i went on, we had no luck in seeing any whales but we were given a free ticket to go on the tour another day. I went on the tour the following day and this time went on the 2.5 hour trip and saw a lot of Minke whales!
I'd definitely recommend the express 2.5 hour tour to anyone!
The Northern lights is something ive always wanted to see and i was so amazed to see them on this trip. At first we had no luck in seeing them but our tour guide and driver drove us somewhere else where we were only waiting about 5 minutes before seeing them dancing across the sky.
The only thing i'd say is that it was a very late finish, we weren't back in Reykjavik until about 01:30am but seeing the northern lights made the whole thing worthwhile.
