We were so lucky to go on this Snaefelsness tour with Thor!
Thor is the perfect tour guide, funny & incredibly knowledgeable about the area. He shared many interesting facts as well as personal stories that really informed us about Icelandic culture. His description of Seals as black bananas still cracks me up.
I went on this tour with my girlfriend after we’d had several weather related cancellations and this absolutely made up for it.
This tour is less famous than the Golden Circle but it was absolutely beautiful with amazing scenery - I’d recommend it (and Nice Travel) to anyone!
The bus was comfortable and warm, we had plenty of stops to use the restroom and grab food but still managed to spend a perfect amount of time at each of the attractions.

David is a genius. This dude knows everything about everything, not just the mountains, rock formations and volcanoes you'll see on the tour, but every single possible thing that you can think of.

Honestly, the tour was spectacular. We had so much fun. By the end of the tour, David was more a friend than a driver. His driving is great, communication skills on point, knowledge extensive and humor dark :)

The tour started at 8:30, he was there at 8:30. Overall, it was an amazing experience.

I highly recommend this tour. We didn't really want to drive ourselves, and it was nice to be able to just sit back and look out the windows. The scenery along the drive was stunning. The first snow of the season happened last night, and there was a beautiful contrast between the green hills and the snowy mountains. Our guide Egill was informative and kept the tour interesting. He also took us to a great restaurant for lunch where there was fish so fresh it had been on the boat an hour before we arrived. We had such a great time, and would definitely encourage others to take this trip.

Mark was our guide for the Snaesfellsnes Peninsula Tour and was excellent! On our last stop, our bus got stuck in the snow. Two other tour buses came by (different tour company) and worked with Mark to get us out. It took 1-1/2 hrs. but they got us out and on our way. If he was flustered, he never let us see it; he just kept working diligently on the task at hand. It was an excellent day!

Dear guests, thank you very much for your positive review about your tour to the beautiful Snæfellsnes peninsuela. Thank you also for your patiance, the Icelandic winter weather can sometimes be a challenge but our guides are of course used to dealing with this and in Iceland we all help each other in such situations. We hope to see you soon here in Iceland again.

This tour to the Snaefelsnes peninsula was amazing! Our guide Thor was entertaining and gave us so much info on the Icelandic culture. We saw so many beautiful sights.... waterfalls, rugged coastlines, gorgeous beaches with lava rocks/black sand. We stopped for a tasty lunch in a small village. Also.... I left my gloves in the van at the end of the trip.... and they were returned to my hotel! Now, that’s what you call a “Nice” company! I highly recommend this trip!

Travel "the world" in 1 day. This was a great tour that went well from start to finish. Sites on the tour were amazing; breaks were sufficient or had adequate time. for dining/bathroom breaks. Beautiful sites that seemed like western California, parts of Hawaii, and Iceland all together. Guide was excellent despite the exhausting day of driving and talking. Small size of the tour made it even more appealing because there was good interaction among the tour group. Would love to do this tour again...

This trip was a highlight of our five-day stay in Reykjavik. Our tour guide "Thor" was from the Snaefellsnes Peninsula so he knew the sights well, and he also had a magical knack for arriving at locations when the sun was out, and driving us there when it was raining! He took us to a lovely inn where we were able to buy a delicious lunch of fresh-caught fish, and gave us insightful explanations of the incredible coastline/Snaefellsnes scenery we experienced. And he had a great sense of humor! Besides being stunning, the tour stops were far less crowded than what we experienced on a Golden Circle tour the day before. We're so glad we took this tour!

The sites were beautiful but the tour guide didn’t add much to any of our sites. Giuseppe was more like a driver who added a few general things here or there. For example, he would drop us at a volcano and just said it was a volcano and that was it. No other information. When we asked him questions he didn’t seem to know that much. We then used nice travels the next day and had an amazing experience with a different tour guide. The tour guide really makes all the difference.

Dear Eliezer, thank you for posting your review. I am very sorry to hear our guide on your Snaefellsnes tour did not perform like he should. To be honest, I am also surprised because this guide usually gets very good reviews on his tours but clearly he did perform well in this case and for that I apologise on behalf of us here at Nicetravel. Our goal is always to provide our guests with a personal and enjoyable experience. I am delighted to hear that was indeed the case on your second tour with us, thank you for telling us also about that. All the best from Iceland Tryggvi

First - we did not take the tour so this is not a comment on the actual tour. We had a rental car and spent a day travelling around the Snaefellsnes pennisula. We heard there was a seal colony and stumbled upon the Ytri Tunga beach where it was located. Follow your navigation because it looks like a driveway into a home but if you can avoid the giant potholes, you will find ample parking. They have plenty of signs of what to look for and after a short walk to the beach, you should find the seals. Whether you go by yourself or in a tour, this was a highlight of the trip for us and I highly recommend going.
