    Best tour with fabulous guide Baldwin with great tips of dos and don'ts. He was super informative, relaxed and so professional. He also did extra stops and made is all comfortable. Only recommend you use them.

    Perfect!
    I recommend book at least one day before. It's cheaper through TripAdvisor day before than at the desk just before arrived.
    If you are afraid of sea sickness don't wait! Just ask for a pill the crew at the beginning.

    It was such an amazing day with yakob. So well paced and informative tour. The blue lagoon was an out of the world experience. Highly recommended again and again. Please choose this company for a cozy small tour.

    Our guide Svan (I apologise if the spelling is wrong!) was very knowledgeable and he told us really interesting stories about the history of Iceland. We had 3 (actually 4!) stops, and we saw the tectonic plates, Gulfoss waterfall and Strokkur geyser.

    Absolutely amazing tour. We had the funniest guide (shout out to Jojo and Gregor) and were able to learn a lot about the culture of iceland, heard folklores and got to know about the emblem of Reykjavík. Of course the attractions were astonishing and luckily we had beautiful weather as well. 10/10 would recommend to anyone, just make sure to bring raincoats since you can get wet at the Gullfoss.

    Our guide, Egill, is fantastic. He went above and beyond with kindness, extra stops as time allowed, and overall a knowledgeable and wonderful person. The tour hit all the major spots and although the day was long (about 11 hours total with the driving) it was well worth it!

    One of the best days of my life. Such brilliant landscape and variety. Your was very well organised and informative without being too detailed. Fascinating. Waterfalls, glacier, black sand beach, dormant volcano. I would recommend this trip.

    The stable is very well run. The guides were very good about making the tourists/riders feel safe & comfortable. The horses are well cared for.

    Tour guide and driver were lovely. Perfect amount of time in each place and it’s easy to find the BSI bus station. The snowmobiling was great! The highlight of my holiday. If you say it’s too expensive bla bla bla, well don’t do it but you’re going to miss out.

    Says 2 to a snowmobile but after meeting with another group at the waterfall we still only had 45 people, so I and a few other people had one to ourselves.

    Booked up the golden circle tour with 1 hour snowboarding via Reykjavik Excursions, and on pick up they had subcontracted to Mountaineers of Iceland.
    No complaints from my wife and I and our 2 adult offspring!
    "Sniper" was our driver and guide, and what a great guy he was. Picked up in this big boy 4x4 truck and off we went. Sniper was giving us some great information over his mic system. (The mic system would be my only slight negative as it kept cutting out, and we missed a chunk of info due to sitting at the back of the truck). Gulfoss waterfall and Geysir were fantastic to see and learn about. We were then transported in a big boy 4 x 4 coach up from Gulfoss to the glacier. The snowmobiling was magnificent. We were fully kitted out in very warm clothing. Boots and gloves also available. Our adult kids (18yrs and 20yrs) drove myself and my wife and they had a thoroughly great time being in the controls. My wife and I had the ride of our lives.. LOL. - This is a full day out. - Highly recommended.

    An amazing, breathtaking tour of the waterfalls, glaciers and black sand beaches of south island. The whole experience was enormously enhanced by driver and guide Arna and fellow guide Maxim. Simply could not have been better.

    The ride was not to easy and not to hard to drive. Therefore it was a great expirience to ride with the snowmobile on the glacier.

    We took a private tour of the Fagradalsfjall volcano with Gudni who was a brilliant guide.

    Welcoming, fun and incredibly knowledgeable, he held the attention of our group (4 adults, 4 teens - no mean feat) by giving us lots of info on daily life in Iceland, volcanic activity and the geography/topography of the island.

    The hike was 2.5 hrs including stops to explore rock formations, lava fields and the smoking crater (from a distance!).

    It was so worth having Gudni as we learned a lot and he made it really fun and engaging.

    5 stars well deserved.

    What a day! Overall it was sensational. There’s a lot of driving to get to where you need to go but nothing you can do about that. You also stop at the geyser and Gullfloss which I hadn’t realised and we had already done another day HOWEVER, the trip is still fantastic. The snowmobiles on a glacier is once in a lifetime, was well organised and thrilling. The secret lagoon was a fantastic end to a great day. Would recommend.
