Amazing experience some thing that you have to do once in your life time
This was a great tour. On the way to the glacier we got to stop at a couple geothermal sites which were beautiful and awe inspiring. When we got close to the glacier, there were beautiful waterfalls, and volcanoes that kept you wanting more. When we actually got to the glacier it was absolutely stunning, and getting to go inside the glacier was an experience I will never forget. This tour was educational, beautiful, fun, and adventurous. Worth every penny.
This was an absolutely awesome experience. And to think it took 14 months to create this ice tunnel inside the glacier after several years of planning. I was grateful that Viator was able to pick me up at our cruise ship even though it was not the norm for this excursion. A friend booked us with Viator to the Blue Lagoon on this trip, too. Another awesome experience. Iceland is such a beautiful place.
Excellent tour. Wear warm clothing or the company will provide it for you--no problem. The walking is not strenuous at all other than being careful since you are walking on ice.
This was one of the most exciting tours I have ever been on. It was hard to believe that I was walking inside a glacier. Plus, it was so beautiful! Driving up the glacier was incredible -- the driver was excellent. All the guides were helpful and courteous.

Stunning, once in a lifetime experience! First class tour guides
This tour was the highlight of our trip. Even though we went in July, I would advise dressing warmly and wearing comfortable, sturdy shoes. You will receive crampons to walk through the ice caves. I wore sneakers and was fine -- but there are puddles you might have to maneuver through. The trip is well paced our guide was very knowledgable. Be aware that there are individual drop-offs at various hotels at the end, so you may have a little bit of a longer ride, depending on where you're staying.
I had booked the tour Inside Langjokull Glacier and Ice Cave tour from Reykjavik plus Thingveller National Park,Hot Spring and Hraunfossar Waterfall via Viator I have no problem with Viator prior to leaving my home country. This tour is supplied by Reykjavik Excursions. I had booked this tour because I needed pick up and drop off to hotel and this I had no problem with. The problem with this tour is that it is misleading in the title because of the points listed below
1.The Hot Springs are pointed out if quick enough to see as the bus returned to Reykjavik
2.Thingvellir National Park is only a loo stop 15 mins and then you have to pay 200kn this should be included in tour cost
3.Lunch stop at Husafell there for an hour there is nothing here but holiday rentals and the hotel
4.The stop at Hraunfosser Watefall again paid loos should be in tour price
Yes it is a 10 hour day and you can only do so much in a day but I think that the cost of the loos should be included in tour price and if not, listed as what is not included and that more thought be given to the description of the tour.
For the reasons listed I rate Reykjavik Excursions an average as I felt the tour as described was not what was given.
The Ice Cave tour on the other hand is amazing I have reviewed separately but that is provided separately, Reykjavik Excursions just deliver you there
On the positive side the coach was very comfortable, free WIFI, pick up was on time but the tour guide I found a bit disinterested and was just going through the motions.
The ice cave tour rates a 5 star but the overall day rates a 4 star for the reasons listed
The glacier and ice cave were thrilling...a great adventure. I gave only 4 stars because we di not go to THINGVELLIR National Park, waterfall,etc. the guide said the road was bad...did not say why.
Into the Glacier did a great job. The rest of the tour felt tacked on.
Skip it....the most interesting part is the crevasse but it's a man made tunnel you walk through. Takes a long time to get to. Most of your time is spent in transit. Small bus takes you to larger bus depot where you transfer to large tour bus that take you out to your actual tour area where you get onto yet another bus that takes you up the mountain.
