(+) 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!

We greatly enjoyed our trip to the lagoon and the varying landscape enroute. We enjoy mountains and waterfalls and there were many to observe or stop at during the trip. They brrought a small clear iceberg onto the boat and they talked about it and then broke it apart so we were able to hold it. After the boat ride we went quickly to the ocean side and looked at the washed up icebergs on the beach and that was also very interesting. We really enjoyed the trip.

Amazing tour. The drive is a bit long and I wish we had a few more shorter stops along the way to experience walking among the lava fields we passed, however arriving i Jokulsarlon Lagoon is well worth the wait. Several of the waterfalls were spectacular as we'll, but the lagoon with the icebergs and the chance to eat centuries-old pure water ice cubes straight from the glacier was quite a treat!

Do not try to do this tour if arriving on a cruise ship at 0700 that morning. Due to weather, our ship was 2 hours late pulling in to port, an hour after the tour departure time. The company was very nice and was able to get us on a different tour later in the day (which was shorter and the price was just over a third of what we paid for this one), but there was a reason we hadn't taken the shorter one in the first place, and it was a bit painful knowing how much we were paying for it. The weather and our delay wasn't the fault of ourselves, the ship, or the tour company, but in the end, we were the ones who lost several hundred dollars - it's not worth the risk. Only book if staying in Reykjavik. (Note: I put 5 stars because the rating was required and that seems to be the norm for the reviews - didn't want to mess up their average).

It was a beautiful showcase of Iceland. The Jokulsarlon Lagoon was really special and we had sunshinefor that experience. When it is pooring rain these trips should be cancelled, because you get soaking wet with a cold rain and that is no fun.

Journey is worth it. You get to see the beautiful waterfalls and the lagoon.

This tour was a transcendent experience, truly. It moved me. It's also a really nice thing to do if you were, like I was, traveling alone. The length of time was a plus, because we got to see so much beauty along the way -- the horses and sheep, the farms, tiny towns, lupen growing everywhere, glaciers, lava fields, flocks of nesting birds, the sea. And the Lagoon itself will forever remain one of the most exquisite things I've seen in all my travels. I live in the southwestern US; we have a lot of almost otherworldly beauty here as well, so my expectations were high. Still, the trip far exceeded them. I'm so glad that, on a relatively short trip, I picked this excursion for my one big adventure.

It is a long journey to finally get to see the glacier lagoon but it is absolutely worth it. The place is amazing.

This was a very long day but the results were worth it. There were many great views from the bus but unfortunately time didn't allow us photo stops at everything we admired for obvious reasons. Being on the water amongst the icebergs at Jokulsarlon is a fabulous experience. I would recommend this trip.

This was a long trip to undertake by coach, but well planned with frequent stops, and the landscape was varied and dramatic. The tour guide was excellent, providing interesting and thoughtful commentary. We felt we not only saw far more of Iceland than we would have by hiring a car and planning our own trip, but we were given insight into the country's history and culture. The final supper stop at a grill was a little grim, but other wise the rest stops were pleasant and well planned and the coach was comfortable- good leg room! The blue icebergs were breathtaking, as was walking behind a 60m waterfall; and we were entertained by Arctic terns, lava fields, lupins, glaciers, steam rising from hot springs, skuas, mountain caves and icelandic horses along the route. The trip may not be ideal in really poor visibility weather, but otherwise I would highly recommend this excursion, particularly to people trying to cram in as much as possible on a short holiday. Particular thanks to our very well-educated and quietly passionate guide!
