It was perfect! Everything you could dream of seeing on a full day out sight seeing in Iceland. Our tour guide, Dave, and driver, Mario, were top notch- superb knowledge of the area and wonderful to listen to. The secret lagoon was incredible, the actually unbelievable sights of the waterfall and what’s more- being proposed to on the top of the volcanic crater Kerid!

Amazing trip, bus number 611! Jennifer our guide was so good at explaining the beautiful sights of Iceland , has a great sense of humour and is very patient. The driver was kind and patient too! Can’t remember his name . Only downside is that the wifi wasn’t working! I highly recommend this tour

We really enjoyed our trip with Mario and Dave, they had such an amazing energy with them that really excited everyone and got everyone really involved with the history of iceland and the amazing views. I highly recommend booking this activity, the most lovely tour guides and company.
