This was such a wonderful experience from start to finish. Each stop was breathtaking and out of this world. We are so grateful to the driver for driving us the whole day and our tour guide as well for providing us with a commentary of the places we visited and the places we travelled by along the way. We stopped for breakfast, lunch and dinner, there were photo opportunities too that they stopped for. We were also VERY lucky to see the northern lights on our way back to Reykjavik which our tour guide and driver stopped for so we could take pictures! 10/10! Thank you Reykjavik excursions!!

This is a long trip but there’s plenty to see and the sights are spectacular. The only down side was some of the other passengers which arrived late at every stop which meant we had less time at Diamond beach and the glacial lagoon before it got dark. Our tour guide was great and we were lucky enough to see seals swimming in the lagoon. Would totally recommend this trip

The tour was absolutely incredible. The tour leader and the Driver, both made our day.
its a long day tour almost 13-14 hours, but both were absolutely brilliant all day.while returning back, they stooped for us to show the northern lights , though it was not the part of the tour. A special touch made our trip so memorable. I highly recommend this tour if someone in Reykjavik.

Recently spent 6 days in Iceland based out of Reykjavik. We booked our tours from abroad before we got there and two of them were with Reykjavik Excursions. The first one was a City Tour which was just terrible. The tour guide was not proficient in English and we only caught about 30 % of what she was saying, plus her commentary was inane and dull and stated the obvious. We did not learn anything about the city from here that we didn't already know. After much deliberation, we complained as we'd only read good reviews about this company. Fortunately we received a full refund so suspect we were not the first to do so. The second tour was to Jokulsarlon. It was a very long day - 14 hours in total and while the locations were very good, you are given very little time at each stop-off point. Iceland is huge and we do understand that it's not possible to spend a lot of time in each place, but think ½ hour would be so much better than 10 minutes here and there. Some stop-off places could possibly be missed in order to spend more time at the points of interest that matter. We were undecided whether or not to do the duck boat at Jokulsarlon and in the end decided to do it based on our guide's recommendation. Unfortunately some people who told him they'd like to do it missed out at the last minute. This aspect of the tour did not seem very well organized - no names were taken down and some people pushed in front of others and took the spaces others were promised. It was a bit of shambles. Our recommendation is to definitely do the duck boat part of the tour and have it booked/confirmed ahead of time. The guide was so so - not terribly engaging - obviously guided it many times so enthusiasm was lost which is what a first-timer wants to hear when traveling. There are many tour companies in Reykjavik - this one seems very visible and large but bigger does not necessarily mean better. Had fabulous tour experiences with East-West Tours so would recommend them over Reykjavik Excursions.

We had joined several day tours with different companies. This one is the only one we were not happy about! It requested us to wait for pick up at 7am but at the end, we start our trip at 8:10am!!!!

We need to change to another bus in the bus terminals. Other tours we joined don’t need to do this. It’s simply wasting tourists’ time. The instructions were not clear. One bus driver asked us to line up in service counter to get a ticket but after waiting for the line, the service lady said we should just get into the bus outside! No visual instructions!!!

It is a LARGE group with around 40 people. The bus was broken and we had to change to a new one! Hello?! Can they do a bit checking before our departure???

Trust me, with the same price you pay, there will be better options in Iceland. Certainly not recommend for all my friends who will come to Iceland.

We took the Glacial Lagoon tour with Reykjavik Excursions and it was one of the best experience we had. Our tour guide Albert was an amazing guy, loaded with information and he went out of the way to make a special stop on the way back for us to experience the northern lights which was not part of the tour. Thanks to him and thanks to Reykjavik Excursions for making our trip wonderful.

I did not actually take this trip from Reykjavik to the Glacial lagoon, but visited it on the way around Iceland. The lagoon is definitely worth even an extra trip. It was magical even in the bad weather that prevented us from seeing the views. But watching the icebergs of all sizes, shapes and colours floating mysteriously out of the mist from the amphicar and being surrounded by them was an unforgetable experience and truly one of the highlights of our round trip. So do take this trip even if it rains...

I really enjoyed this trip in the last day of my travel in Iceland. Tour guide, Mr Dagthor Haraldsson, organised well this tour. He provided us with detail explanation and professional service. Also, driver drove very safely. On the same day I had to take Northern night, they helped me to make it. So I was able to see the light before leaving Iceland. Thank you very much.

Never book anything from this company! They are very bad organized! They forgot to pick me up at the bus stop! I’ve been waiting for an hour and then they realized that they were missing me! I got so cold waiting for them! The weather was so freezing!
I’m very upset and disappointed!!!!!!!!!!!

Runar and Gunnar are our guide and driver. They were fantastic. Driver is courteous and diligent. It was a really long drive, and was foggy and rainy late at night on the way back, he kept us safe, thumbs up! The tour guide is very informative. He spoke for almost the entire trip and pointed out all things we need to see during the drive and at the sights, extremely diligent, the best!
