The tour was excellent. David, our tour guide, was very informative. Besides his extensive knowledge of Iceland's history, he also gave some tips for exploring Snaefellsnes. The black beach was gorgeous, and it was different from the other black beach in Vik. We are glad we booked this trip. I thought it was well organized. David chose a restaurant with really fresh cod, and we really enjoyed our lunch there. We have several opportunities to use the restroom as well as plenty of time to enjoy the scenery. I recommend this tour. Despite the long travel time, the experience was worth it. David mingled with all of us. It's hard to remember his last name, but he's an excellent tour guide and an original from the UK. Our tour was made even more enjoyable by the beautiful weather that day!
Our guide who went by the nickname “Iceman” was a wonderful guide. He was very knowledgeable about the geology and provided excellent information about the landscapes and the history of the area. He made the tour special by stopping by places that weren’t listed on itinerary and gave us plenty of time to explore the stops. Having a great tour guide makes the experience better and we were so lucky to have him as our guide. The tour is definitely worth going on as you will see another side of the country.
Simon was a great guide. Normally when you are shunted to "special" places for coffee or lunch it is subpar, but his choices were fantastic. He could not help the poor weather, but I felt confident in his driving during the rain/windstorm. Still got to see many sights. It's a long day, but worth it.
It was a amazing tour We really had a great time on the RIB boat seeing whales and dolphins really close. Must do in reykjavik.
Given the distance involved, taking these tours is by far the easiest & most worry free way to see Iceland.
