Hike & Relax

Our guide, Eddie, was fantastic. He was a great source of geological information throughout the tour. Hiking the volcano was a thrill and was only made better by the 2 hour relaxing trip to the blue lagoon. We also had an absolutely delicious fish & chips meal for lunch. Thanks Eddie!!

David is my hero for being a very fun tour guide, and I got lucky to have a really energetic and engaging group of people on this tour! I didn't get to see active lava flow from the volcano but that didn't quite matter - it wasn't the easiest hike for sure, but it felt like I accomplished something. We did have other stops on the way to make things more interesting - my favorite extra was the beach where we got to be goofy and pretend we were on the Eurovision movie since it had been filmed there. I chose the blue lagoon option for afterward which was by the far the best part of my trip to Iceland this week. A lot of it had to do with how cool my group was - but as I said, the tour guide really set the tone so I give him mad props for doing that. I will have wonderful memories from this trip and some awesome pictures of course to back it up. We did have a lunch stop and David got really excited about fish and chips so we all ended up getting it pretty much - it was rather tasty.

Wonderful experience in Iceland

Even though I was not able to see the volcano, the reason that I gave 5 stars is because Cristina (our tour guide) did an amazing job with the group. She explained everything in detail and since it was cloudy and with few showers, she took us to the volcano lava area and prior reaching the Blue Lagoon, she took us to our parts of Iceland as she know we had not had met all the hours that we would spent on the volcanic area. I appreciate that she was our guide and hopefully next time, we will see the volcanic eruption.

What an incredible tour and incredible guide "Addi." We were so fortunate to be able to see the flowing lava. Our guide was excellent! He took the time to help everyone get up the steep mountain and was very informative and kind. LOVED THIS TOUR!

Christina is such a delight. She's funny, creative and approachable. She shares her Icelandic experiences and knowledge willingly. Even though we couldn't go to the volcano due to smoke and fog, Christina made sure we saw other interesting sites. She took interest in each person and knew us by name!! Amazing!

Excelent tour operator. Unfortunately we were unable to see live lava but Christina tried her best to show us. She is an excellent guide and very knowledgeable, bus was clean and comfortable.
