Overall great experience!! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and definitely added a great deal to our day! The sites visited were absolutely beautiful and I’m very pleased that we were able To experience them. My only displeasure was that I chose the tour with the higher price because it included hotel pickup. After booking, I was advised that the bus wouldn’t be able to pick up and drop off at my hotel. Instead, I needed to meet at a bus stop to picked up by a bus, then transferred to another bus. Thankfully, it wasn’t a long walk to the pickup/drop off spot, but if I would’ve known beforehand, I would’ve selected the less expensive option that didn’t include hotel collection. Other than this, the tour was wonderful!

Overall enjoyable but I did not know what to expect at the destination and at the first park we were left on our own so I had no direction and did not know where to go or what to see. Aa a result I do not think I got a good experience and did not see much. Also had to use the restrooms and did not have enough time to see what I wanted to see after I figured out where to go.

It was very good and the tour guide was excellent.

I was disappointed that Grayline could not arrange pickup at the Keflavik Airport. I received this message on Sept. 24: “Dear passenger, We regret to inform you that we are unable to pick you up at your preferred pickup location. Given your location it might be best if you could meet us at our main terminal, located at Klettagarðar 4, 104 Reykjavik. Please check in at our desk there fifteen minutes prior to your listed departure on your day of travel.” There was no mention of any Grayline transportation from Keflavik.
