Traveler Tips

Wear a waterproof coat and you'll be fine) and the famous black sand beaches and rock formations in the cliffs AND GLACIERS!
Far safer on a large coach than hiring a car it was pretty windy but was told this is the norm here Thanks also to Magic our coach driver.
You gotta try this if you have limited time in Iceland so it is not wasted.

Great Trip!
Lori_V, Aug 2022
God is such an artist. Amazing scenery and the weather cooperates!! Tour guides friendly and kept the trip lively!
Matthew_A, Aug 2022
The tour was awesome! The guide monika was so thoughtful and knowledgeable. She was able to explain everything and help with taking pictures. The driver Tomik was awesome! He got us there and back safely and his driving skills might be out if this world. Overall it was a great experience ans I would recommend anyone to do it.
The trip was breathtaking and well worth it!
Kathy_G, Aug 2022
All of them, especially seeing a rainbow over the waterfall and Black Sand, really Black Sand at the beach!
Spend the extra money on small group tour you will be happier
Mike_K, Aug 2022
Great scenery and natural beauty. Great waterfalls, interesting glacier and black sand beaches…. But……spend the extra money to take a small group tour with max of 18-20. Bus with 61 was absolutely terrible. Took forever to load and unload. No personal interaction at all with tour guide. Day before we were on small group tour that was much more personalized and guide was very interactive
This tour packs it in
Walter_M, Aug 2022
Long day but well worth it if you want to see the true beauty of Iceland. The guide and driver were awesome and really packed in a lot in one day.
Do it!
Jill_J, Aug 2022
Wonderful tour! We had plenty of time at each stop. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and enjoyed sharing facts with us. Overall, the best tour we were on!
Many exciting stops
Linda_N, Aug 2022
Many exciting stops during the day and many exciting stories from our guide Rose and the driver was also awesome! (sorry i forgot your name guy from Poland) Big tour group though. A full bus with many people
The Black Sand Beach-worthy a visit.
Mona_K, Aug 2022
The Black Sand Beach with its spectacular view to the formation in the mountain, the life off the puffins and the formations in the ocean.

Christopher_L, Aug 2022
Jona our tour guide and Tomkin our driver were excellent. We had a great day touring the Southern Coast.
Love it
Lady_N, Aug 2022
I was lucky to have such a great and very knowledgeable tour guide, Yona. She told us everything there is to know about every site we went and more. If we could choose our guide, without a doubt I would choose her each time. I highly recommend this tour, you will not regret it. The landscape is breathtaking!
Must see!
Heidi_A, Aug 2022
This tour far exceeded my expectations! We saw two waterfalls, a glacier, the black sand beaches, columnar basalt formations, and a couple small caves. All beautiful! And we got a little bonus stop at a rocky oceanside viewpoint to see puffins. Our guide Jona absolutely made the trip! I was concerned about the amount of time on then bus, but Jona gave us fascinating information about the geology, history, and culture of Iceland along the drive. I learned so much! I definitely 100% recommend this tour.
Fabulous excursion
Doreen_S, Aug 2022
Wonderful guide and driver Made the trip even better The tour was interesting and scenery superb Thank you
Overall a very good...
BichThuy_D, Jul 2022
Overall a very good experience, our guide Geri the Wolf even added an extra stop to see puffins. A big thanks also to Michal the Gladiator for driving us everywhere! A suggestion: maybe shorten the break times a bit (by 5-10 min) in order to extend the time spent at the landmarks?
Benjamin_W, Jul 2022
Loved our tour. Mikael and Genri have a comedy act going. Made it a fun experience. Of course, Iceland’s landscape is stunning…
Waterfalls!!! Book this tour!!
Joey_B, Jul 2022
Tour was a full day! Great way to see this part of Iceland. Plenty of time given at each stop. Highly recommend. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful.
Absolutely amazing experience, everything was first class!
Cameron_M, Jul 2022
Absolutely everything was memorable, this was certainly the best excursion ever! It felt like dreams do come true! Our Bus Driver Tomek and Guide Karolina, we’re absolutely amazing very informative and helpful!
Day excursion
Kathleen_B, Jul 2022
Excellent day excursion Katherinna as a very good guide very knowledgeable Highlight of the day was seljalandsfoss waterfall an experience never to be forgotten.
Every stop was beautiful...
Ramona_C, Jul 2022
Every stop was beautiful and lunch had many options including grabbing something from a grocery store and having a picnic on the black sand beach. The only reason I gave it a 4 star rating is because we were told we would be dropped off where we were picked up and they decided to drop us off “close” to our original pick up point. This isn’t what was originally communicated and we had to adjust our plans slightly to accommodate the change.
