An excellent trip. The guide was really friendly and good. The whole trip had stunning views even though it was raining the whole day. I do have to mention that whatever the weather this is a must do trip. We were very satisfied with this day trip. Exhausting but very rewarding!

The guide spoke both German and English, and gave us plenty of time to enjoy the trip in addition to providing us with an overview of Icelandic history.

You must get a seat on the left hand side of this bus so you can take pictures on the way out, as all the best photo ops are on this side and by the time you head back from this 16 hour trip, it's dark and the weather has deteriorated. Loved the iceberg lagoon! Don't miss that!!!

Fabulous. It is a long journey but well worth it. The tour guide explained all the logistics well to ensure everybody was on time. Would have loved to have spent more time there.

We were hesitant to take on a 14-15 hour coach tour, but this proved our best option, rather than staying somewhere on the south coast. The tour gave great insight into the attractions of the Jokulsarlon glacial lagoon, the waterfalls at Selgafoss and Selgalandsfoss, Vik and the black beach.
It seemed odd, at first, that we drove past Selgalandsfoss in late morning, but it was a real highlight to see the vertical rainbows there with the sun on our backs in the evening. Our on water lagoon experience was memorable.
Our guide Christina was very informative and did a good job keeping the mood cheerful as the day got longer. Her advice re available food at meal stops was valuable.

I think this was our favourite tour even though it was such a long day.
The waterfalls and lava flows/remains were good but the glacier lagoon was the highlight.

Congratulations to your coach driver on this trip he did very well and had our complete confidence.

This tour was awesome. Highly recommend it. Our tour guide, Louisa, was fantastic and told many of the Icelandic saga's to keep us entertained on the long bus trip. They don't mention that there is little south coast visible and you only visit one beach - with black sand on the tour, however the mountain ranges, glaciers, lava fields and waterfalls make up for it. The lagoon cruise was amazing and definitely something I would love to do again.

Such a great tour, it was a long day but so worth seeing Jokulsarlon Lagoon and the boat ride was spectacular with an awesome guide. Along the way you saw so much of south Iceland's landscape, it was perfect.

One of the most spectacular sights I've ever seen. A mountain backdrop, reflective water, black sand and white/blue icebergs. Photos don't so it justice.

The tour was amazing! I liked that it was a fairly small group and the guide was very knowledgeable. The guide shared information not only about places that we've visited but culture, people, and life in general in Iceland which was very interested to hear. I would love to come back again.

Loved the sites, the bus ride, the ability to walk about, and most importantly, the terrific knowledge and cordial demeanor of our tour guide, Brandon. Long day, but oh so worth it! Be sure to bring rain gear for the boat ride....cause you never know what the weather will bring.

Wonderful, informative guide, incredible scenery and so much fun!! It's a long day, but worth it if you want to explore the south, and the scenery all the way is so lovely you won't even notice the time !

It's totally worth coming to Iceland just for this trip - wow, what a day! Be prepared, it is a very long day but there are frequent stops of interest along the way as well as simple restroom breaks so the time goes quite fast. Getting to take the boat onto the glacier lagoon is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Our guide was very knowledgeable, personable, and funny. All in all, absolutely recommended and great value.

This tour was fabulous. It was a long day, but it was worth it. The glaciers were really cool in fact if you walk under the bridge to the ocean there are ice blocks that have washed up on the black sand beach which make for some great pictures. A must see!

This tour was worth the trip to Iceland! It was on a Saturday and had to cancel a different tour booked on the same day so we could see the icebergs, so glad we did. It was a very long day but there were several stops along the way to break it up. The icebergs were absolutely beautiful and amazing. The weather was great with the sun out so the pictures are terrific and would recommend this tour regardless of the weather.

Long day although trip broken up with frequent stops there and back. Guide was great, Jokulsarlon took our breath away was so beautiful. Even saw the Northern Lights on the way back which the driver stopped for us to get out and ooh and ahh at, so can't complain about a thing! As time was short we did this on our first day and the Golden Circle the day after. Would perhaps have been better if more days available to spread them out as we were so tired what with getting back late and two early mornings!

(+) excellent tour, you can see the amazing landscape that's changing eg the fields, the sea, some waterfalls on the way to the glacier, and the glacier itself is amazing, breathtaking. The illuminating waterfall was a nice touch at the end. The guide (Mattias i think) is the best guide ever. He is really knowledgable and you the stories/info he is telling are very interesting.

(-) be prepared it's the longest tour, about 14hrs, you can't see that much of the south coast, except the waterfall Skogafoss, another glacier (from far away) and you will be at Vik in the afternoon were there's no day light (i'm guessing if you do the tour in the summer you will have plenty of it) to walk to the beach.

Excellent trip - amazing landscapes, I took it in early October and the fall colors were beautiful.
It was a bit rainy and it is a long trip but it is definitely worth it!
