Our original trip was cancelled and that's how I came across this one. It was a real stroke of luck! Joanna was so incredibly warm and told us a lot about Iceland. Since there were only four of us, we were able to stop individually whenever there was a nice viewpoint. Laufas and its history was very interesting and the visit to the Forrest Lagoon at the end was the crowning glory. Thanks to Joanna for the great day!

Very good time on the calm fjord with the humpback whales. Friendly, funny, attentive, passionate guide. The guide took photos during the outing which we were able to retrieve afterwards which was a huge plus because it allowed us to put away our phone and camera and enjoy the moment 100%. The photos received are magnificent. A big thank-you.

The tour was really great and had everything to offer. From the waterfall to Lake Myvatn to the Mars-like landscape, everything was there and our guide Vicky was very cool. A small lunch snack was also included and the price-performance ratio was also good!

Or guide Kjartan and our driver Soren were amazing. They kept us on time, They shared tons of information and they made this day magical for my family and I. Would travel with them again and again.

Driver and assistant were outstanding hosts! Many local points of interest from a multigenerational resident. Constant quality stops with 30 min drives between. No complaints whatsoever.
