A fantastic day! The guided tour was interesting and took us to some stunning places. The scenery is unlike anything we'd seen before. Then on to the Blue Lagoon, which is the most amazing place. It's fairly pricey, but well worth it. We also had massages, which I would highly recommend!!

Delightful guide. Great way to spend half a day before a flight home. They were very helpful with our luggage.

I booked this tour for my husband's family as well as my family and they enjoyed it. It was nice to see the sea birds and the varying landscapes. The Blue Lagoon is nice, but take an early bus back--we spent about 3 hours there for lunch and swimming that was plenty of time. Most of our group promptly fell asleep on the bus ride back to the hotel from the Blue Lagoon.

Very good tour. I liked the coffee and restroom stop at the airport as I didn't realize how quite and rural the area we were going to was! The scenery was very interesting--very much like a moonscape with the occasional town or geothermal spring. There were some beautiful views of the ocean and lighthouses/churches as well.

We planned a 10 hour layover in Iceland and filled it with this tour. It was very easy to do and the tour operator assisted in making sure we were on time for our flight. We managed to tour the peninsula and also spend an hour at the Blue Lagoon.
