The scenery was spectacular and our tour guide, Thord, made the entire day special. I would highly recommend this tour.
Black beach, what a treat. If you are lucky and get Andrew F as your guide, you will discover many things and perspectives of Iceland will change for ever.....excellent tour
Bjorn, our enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide, set off with our small group and told us loads about Iceland's past and present and enthused so much about the sights and nature of his country that if you weren't already in love with Iceland you were by the end of the day! He taught us a lot about Iceland and its creation. He managed to get us to all the stops before the masses turned up and before the sun went behind any of the few clouds that were in the sky. We managed to see the waterfalls, the ice glacier, the waves and the black sands, endless icicles and wonderful ice formations in all their splendour as though it was just them and us. A grand day out with the best guide.
This was a wonderful tour! Great sights and a great driver!
We had a fantastic trip. In one long day,we were able to see glaciers, volcanos, black sand, waterfalls and island up close and personal. We had the benefit of an absolutely clear, relatively warm day which enabled us to see sights which may not have been visible otherwise. Andres was an excellent and informative guide and we were well taken care of. The scenery was even more spectacular because of the recent rains and everything was lush and green. The net result was that we saw some of the most beautiful sights we had ever seen. The use of a minibus instead of a large touring bus enabled us to be much more flexible on time and the tour group was able to bond much more easily. Thank you for an unforgettable day!
Gorgeous scenery. Our guide was knowledgeable and shared lots of local info. as well. We were given plenty of time to see each stop of the tour and were not rushed.
Take this tour!!! Really great. We were in a very small group and Erik was the best guide and driver. We made several spur of the moment stops and he was great at addressing our questions and meeting our requests for stops and sites. And he has a great singing voice!
Outstanding. Stefan had to deal with five passengers and my 87 year old mother. He catered to all of us. He was knowledgeable and immersed us in Iceland history with his wonderful personality.
Fantastic all-day trip. We had a great Scottish bus driver who knew tons about the country and the sites we were visiting. Highly recommended!
Really enjoyed this tour. Being on a small mini bus makes the experience more enjoyable and our tour guide was excellent. The waterfalls are amazing! If you are going to walk behind the waterfall I would definitely recommend wearing waterproof pants as well as waterproof jacket as you will get soaked otherwise!! The tour guide gave us plenty of time at each location and we didn't feel rushed at all.

Bjorn was a fantastic guide on this tour, he had so much information and history to share and was very enthusiastic, you can see he loves his country. He even put together a Spotify playlist of Icelandic musicians which was brilliant, i forgot to ask him to share the playlist with me! Highly recommended tour!
Es ist ein MUSS!! Ich habe es am 7 August gemacht, es war mein erste Tag in Island und der beste! Die anderen waren auch super, aber dieser war genial. Tour war sehr gut organisiert unsere Guide war Andres, sehr sehr freundlich, antwortet alle Fragen. Kleine Gruppe, alle sehr nett. Das Wetter hat mitgespielt, es war die Sonne den ganzen Tag. Es ist zu empfehlen auf jeden Fall.
After a late start, a fantastic tour. The horseback riding, the falls the glacier,everything was spectacular. The driver Gummi was terrific. He was knowledgeable, friendly and very interesting. Overall a tremendous day and a great tour.
Beautiful trip with knowledgeable guide. So happy we chose this tour!
Hilmar was an amazing guide. A wealth of information and very funny. I totally enjoyed riding the horse and going behind the waterfall. Sad that there was not a flock of puffins to see, but that happens. He reminded me to go get some lunch when I forgot. Iceland is magnificent, and I will be back.

Our tour guide was Trond, who was informative and funny! You could tell he really enjoyed his job... we got soaked walking up to several waterfalls, learned a bit at the Skogar Folk Museum, explored near a glacial tongue and walked the black sand more like pebbles beach at Reynisfjara! We even enjoyed a beer at lunch and an ice cream stop on the way home! Best tour of my trip to Reykjavik, hands down! Just do it!
Probably the best tour I've ever done. Ian, the tour guide was superb, very knowledgeable and gave excellent recommendations. We even got a chance to go puffin watching which was not originally part of the schedule but he managed to squeeze that in as well. If you ever do this tour, make sure and ask for Ian as your guide!!
We really enjoyed the Small group and I would recommend it over the big bus for this tour. Our guild was knowledgeable and added a couple of extra stops along the way to accommodate the 8 of us on this trip. It is a long drive, but you see many things on the south coast that are not on other tours
There are no words to describe how much I enjoyed this trip apart from these:
When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.
Really enjoyed this tour. We had a great tour guide, Andres, very informative and entertaining. Due to back weather he used his local knowledge to do the sites but in a different order. This meant we weren't at a waterfall in the pouring rain and sure enough when we came back to it the rain had passed. Great flexibility shown. The tour includes a stop at a museum which personally I didn't enjoy. I would have preferred to have spent more time at the waterfall as the last one felt a little bit rushed and we had been at the museum for over 30 mins
Missed a star due to the weather! Torrential rain all day! However, our guide from 'Gateway to Iceland' was great - very fun - lots of information. These waterfalls are a must on any visit to Iceland. Coastline beautiful too despite the weather. Take weatherproof clothes - we were kitted for the winter weather so we were warm but some further waterproofing would have been useful.
