Amazing tour!
Kostakis_I
, Mar 2022
That was a great tour !! We went everywhere as the Itinerary describes except Skogafoss due to lack of daylight ( we went at mid of March). It gives you enough time to take photos and walk around and we saw amazing landscapes! You should go for sure !! Great!

Very very very long day - but nature at its best
Charlotte_B
, Mar 2022
This is a very very long trip so be prepared as it totalled 17hrs. Wouldn’t recommend it for anyone with young children as there is a lot of time spent on the bus (14hrs of the 17hrs) You do get to see some great locations and a whole load of Iceland along the way, which you probably wouldn’t unless you do a trip like this. Lunch was had at the Black beach cafe which was nice, albeit a little rushed and dinner was at a service station that was also rushed which was a little disappointing as we presumed it was going to be at some nice Icelandic restaurant along the way. (Note to self: don’t presume) If you don’t mind travelling for hours definitely do it, but be mindful that it might not be all that you hoped it would be.

Stunning but long journey
Marie_C
, Feb 2022
Amazing scenery and this trip stops at some breathtaking places. Our only reason for only rating this a 3 star was the length of the trip. It’s a very long journey and much of your time is spent on a rather cramped bus with only brief visits to each location. However it is stunning!

The journey is worth it for the scenery but not on this bus.
Yvonne_C
, Feb 2022
This is a very long trip, the sights are amazing and makes the journey worth while. Unfortunately the transport on the day was not adequate, it was a small bus, no Wi-Fi or chargers aboard and the air conditioning was not working. Although the guides were friendly and informative, this company need to improve the working environment for their team and their customers

Too long and wrong bus used
William_G
, Feb 2022
The bus was not fit for the journey. 15 hour trip with no air conditioning no WiFi no charging sockets for phone. No leg space in out seat with a box in the way. Eventually stopped for dinner but restaurant closed. Told on the trip to go and buy lunch and eat it on the bus. Only 5 20 minute stopes over a 15 hour trip.

The journey is long but the destinations were worth it- absolutely beautiful! It would have been good to have had more interaction and information about the areas from the two drivers.

Stunning South Coast
Tracy_G
, Dec 2021
This tour gave us the highlights of the South Coast with our guides G and V ensuring we got to see as much as possible in the limited December daylight. The South Coast is stunning with spectacular coastline, glaciers, and glacial flood plains. The only downside is there is so much to see in only one day - I would recommend booking a 2 or 3 day tour if you have the time. If you only have one day, then this is the tour to book.
