    This tour is probably the best I’ve done yet! It was amazing! A little bit too long but loved it! We saw an Arctic Fox too it came close and allowed us to feed it! Our tour guide was called Siggi and he was brilliant, really informative and taught us many things about Iceland. The tour allowed us to see the sun rise and the sun set again due to the short hours of daylight this time of year! Highly recommend this tour, we saw sooo much more than we thought!

    Very nice excursion with a great guide in a small group… If you are a fan of Game of Thrones, don't hesitate!!! However it is preferable to do it in summer because in winter the days are very short (4 hours of light)... which forces us to speed up the pace a little... But the winter scenery of the peninsula is magnificent... Our guide stopped us in an excellent restaurant for lunch where the dish of the day is always fresh fish caught in the morning… To be tested!!!

    This was fabulous! Due to a canceled flight, we lost a whole day on our Iceland trip and had to make some tough decisions on what plans to keep and what plans to cancel. I am SO glad we decided to keep this tour. Our guide was Simon. He said that Snaefellsnes is his favorite (easy to see why) and it certainly seemed that way. Simon was genuine, friendly, professional, and helped us make the most of our day. Though it was a long day with lots of driving, it was worth it for the beautiful scenery. Just magical. I think I would say to anyone visiting Iceland that Snaefellsnes is a must, and this was a great way to see it.
