A great tour to see the beautiful landscapes of Iceland

A must do tour! The tour guide was excellent. Driving down the South coast gave us a chance to see some of the many amazing sights of Iceland.

A nice day tour

The most magnificent thing about this tour was getting up close and personal with a glacier! The guide, Gusto, was very knowledgeable and I appreciated that he was flexible and rerouted our trip so that we could have the nicest weather possible in each location. He also had a great playlist to go along with our travels!

Great day visiting the main sights of the south coast

We had a lot to pack into our 10 hour tour and with ever-reducing daylight hours we had a busy day. Magnus our guide and driver kept us entertained with information, stories and jokes as well as keeping us safe driving in some challenging conditions. First stop about 2 hours out of Reykjavik was Skogafoss waterfall (45mins), then Vik for a few photos (10 mins), the black sand beach (1 hr 20) where we bought lunch in the cafe, then in the afternoon we stopped at Solheimajokull glacier (45mins) and finally Seljalandsfoss (45mins) . Each stop was just long enough to see the sights and we didn't feel too rushed. November weather meant that we didn't really want to linger outside for any longer anyway! The sun had set by the time we returned to the minibus at our last stop so we only just got everything in. Because this was a small group tour (run by Your Day Tour)we had a bit more flexibility than with a larger coach party and it was a friendly atmosphere on board. Thanks to Magnus who made the day special for us all.

Amazing sights and back in plenty of time to find the Northern lights

Great tour if you’re on a short trip to Iceland- me and my partner had a three day trip to Iceland and loved it- this tour covers so much without feeling rushed. A great one to do if you aren't wanting a journey as long as from Reykjavik to Diamond beach as this tour includes a glacier which is beautiful. Our driver and tour guide, ‘Al’ was amazing, really knowledgeable, funny, and offering to take photo’s as well. This tour is a good one if you’re off to find the northern lights in the evening as we were back to our hotel by about 6pm (most Northern lights tours leave at about 8) giving you time for a quick tea as well. We’re both really pleased we picked this one over any other tour of the South.

Trip was interesting and driver kept us entertained. Driver did not wear a mask nor remind passengers to do so-this seemed inconsistent with COVID-related requirements to enter Iceland.

Siggi our guide drove through snow, sleep and rain and was always cheerful, he told us lots of information about the different areas and funny stories. The rolling huge waves on the beautiful black beach, the amazing glacier and fantastic waters were sights to see. Totally different trip to the Golden Circle and one we would not have missed.

One of the Best Tours in Iceland
Pia
, Nov 2021
This was a great tour made even greater by our very energetic and knowledgeable tour guide Siggy. Our time in each stop was perfect with everyone being able to enjoy the view/s and take photos. At the end of our tour, Siggy treated us to a sample of Icelandic chocolate candies. We thought that was sweet. I highly recommend this tour. All the stops were just so amazing - from the Falls to the black sand beach and basalt formations and so much more.
