We absolutely loved this tour! The bus was large and comfortable and our tour guide Petur was excellent! We were picked up right across from our hotel which was great. I was initially worried about being on a bus for so long, but the stops are frequent and we never felt cramped, etc. There was sufficient time at each location to wander a bit and take plenty of photographs. Definitely recommend!

Matt was an excellent tour guide with lots of information on what we were going to see on the tour. I especially enjoyed the fun facts and myths and folklore. He also gave us a lot of safety tips and told us why the signs are at the locations. Thanks for looking out for us! Also, Tomak was a very good driver. This was my first trip to Iceland and I would definitely recommend Viator.

Stina and Gummi were amazing tour guides! She told the best stories throughout the day and he kept us safe even in a windy rainy Icelandic adventure. I was traveling with my teen son and we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

This was such a great tour to see sights and scenery that you wouldn’t necessarily see on the golden circle tour. The company were prompt and very informative, the guide made the whole trip very interesting, funny and informative. We would thoroughly recommend this trip as we felt we got a whole round view of the beautiful sights Iceland has to offer.

We were picked up from the hotel the guide Matt was very friendly and had a great sense of humour. Magic the driver drove so well it was hard to believe that all the roads were covered in snow. We had plenty of time at all the stops for photo shoots and toilet breaks and food. Every stop was breathtaking I would definitely recommend this trip.

The best tour I've had in Iceland. Our guide Flosi was so knowledgeable, told us lots of stories, incorporated music, and we went to more places than I ever thought possible in one day. We were given 40 or so minutes at almost every site and it's amazing how much those 40 minutes flew by. I highly recommend this tour for your trip to Iceland

A great tour. The timing was well planned to give breaks to walk around and explore these exciting sites. The volcanic beaches were quite a sight to see. Lunch in Vik was one of my favorite meals of my whole trip recommendation - get the Icelandic Meat Soup at the Ice Cave Restaurant The bus was very comfortable and the tour guide was very informative.

Really enjoyed our trip to southern Iceland. We saw many interesting sites. The guide's narrative made what we saw much more meaningful. Weather was nasty, but wasn't the fault of the tour.
