Reykjavik: Silver Circle, Canyon Baths, and Waterfalls Tour
- Transportation included
- Duration: 9 hours
Good tour but not the tour we had thought we had booked due to a breakdown of communication. Apparently East West had changed the itinery since we booked to include an extra two stops ( with increasing daylight hours). This was good but the home cooked diner which had had such good reviews had changed to a bread and soup lunch with a bit of swiss roll (not home made)...not that great and quite disappointing. I wish we had been informed about this beforehand as this was our last day in Iceland and would have been a nice end to the holiday. The 12 hour tour was completed in 10 hours probably due to the quick lunch .
Skuli and his partner drove us around the Snaefellsnes peninsula. Everyone was welcomed on board individually, he was open about the rules, which was to enjoy your trip and respect each other. Skuli was very knowledgeable about the whole area and talked about his own love for photography. His sense of humour along the way made the trip enjoyable for everyone. I travelled solo and it made all the difference. Having experience of the other tour companies, I would recommend this one first. If you want to have an enjoyable and memorable experience of Iceland, this is definitely the company. Thank you for a great day.
This was the best among the day tours! We have experienced the Blue Lagoon, Golden Circle, South Iceland but this tour toped it all! The tour guide/driver really took his time and very informative. He also made extra stops for taking photos. The way to the western coast was amazing!! From lava fields, to mountains, to fjords, random waterfalls and rivers and to the main sight-seeing destinations.. The best untouched nature we have ever seen.
The lava tunnel was awe inspiring, with ice forming stalagmites from the overhead drip. The lava formations within the tunnel, were amazing and the guide was extremely informative about the geology of the formation of the tunnel. The waterfalls were breathtaking, with the glacier runoff providing a blue hue to the falls, contrasting the rest of the river they flowed into.
A shame the weather was not brilliant so felt very reluctant to get out of the bus! Also felt that the windows steamed up so visibility was very poor from inside the vehicle! It was not until we did half the journey we realised why small buses were being used fir this trip. Also found the sound system very poor as could not understand nor heard the guide clearly
