Was terrible because while it was advertised that one could cancel thru 8/30 I could not do so because they would not answer the phone or my emails. So since I could not take the tour I was charged for something I did not participate in.

We went to visit the cave on a rainy day in Reykjavik- the tour was very short barely an hour, the tour guide was nice, kept raining all the time in the cave- no reason to pay 55-60 USD per person for such an activity!!!!!

Super interesting! Very informative guide; thoroughly enjoyable. So glad we did this! Need to be able to walk on uneven surfaces (stone steps) but the walk is not at all strenuous.

Great guide, funny, informative. I only wished it were longer! If you have trouble walking on uneven surfaces please heed their advice and don’t go! If you have trouble seeing in low light conditions please heed their advice and don’t go. They state it for a reason! Otherwise, a very safe tour.

Love every minute. Only wish that we had known about the extreme tour to do that as it is more active and longer. Anna made the experience great. Sadly we were her last tour. Highly recommend though.
