Difficult review to write. The morning started by arriving at the bus stop as indicated by the email. Waiting 40 minutes and no one showed. Called the operator Iceland Site seeing. They stated I was at the wrong stop. Explained I was at the stops they emailed. They came back on the line and agreed I was at the right stop. They sent a separate van to pick us up and catch the original bus of which we did. Tour guide was nice enough but we were not afforded the options that the rest of the group. Was never given the option of the hot spring or the lava cave. Now for the snowmobiling and ice cave. Because they were with 2 other companies they were great. Highly recommend. No back to the bad. On our way back the guide asked us where we wanted to be dropped off as we told them the bus stop where we were suppose to be pick up. He stated it was out of the way and we would be dropped off at another. I would not recommend ICELAND SITE SEEING.......

It was a very informative tour given by the guide, we learnt so much about the Ice Glacier. The snow mobile was quite an adventure, although I wish the guide would pay more attention to the slower drivers, instead of speeding off all the time with the ones who knows how to ride already.

We had a great time- snowmobiling on a glacier was definitely a first for us. The ice cave tour was fun and informative. Safety and comfort were a priority for the tour provider. We would definitely recommend this tour to others.

Incredible sites. Tour was on time and comfortable bus ride. The ice cave was great to see and experience and the snowmobiles were fun but too short of a ride and follow the leader was slow and boring. I was expecting that we would ride around a bit on the glacier and have the opportunity to enjoy the snowmobiles a bit more. Additionally, it would have been good if they allowed us to get closer the the blue part of the glacier so we can see it up close and take pictures.

We had a great time. You have that out of this world feeling as you drive up the glacier and the wind is blowing so hard and the surroundings are just stark white for miles. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and kept us safe.
