Vom Anfang bis zum Schluss gut organisierte und gut durchgeführte Tour! Anna hat uns perfekt durchgeführt und betreut- ja sie hat uns sogar ein Lied in echter „Wikingersprache“ vorgesungen Die Locations waren wunderschön, einfach nichts zu meckern und nur zu empfehlen! Ich habe vor dieser Tagestour einen Reiturlaub auf Islandpferden gemacht, also hat mir das Sitzen im Bus sehr gut gepasst nach all den Tölt- Strapazen

What people are saying about Eastern Region, Iceland
Our guide Matt was amazing! The most intelligent and funny guid that we have had in Iceland so far. Our bus driver Kal was also amazing. We chose to skip coffee and see some extra sights and it was sooo worth it. It’s a long day but I learned more in this trip than any where else while in this country! The lagoon boat is a must don’t skip it. The waterfalls are also incredible! All the glaciers were more exciting because Matt knew everything about every single one. I appreciate that he enjoys his job so much. His passion is intoxicating.
Our Guide Gud was very friendly and had a very calm and knowledgeable attitude.!He guaranteed a safe environment for the whole group and at every stop. The scenery was stunning, but be prepared for a long journey! There have been enough stops for supplies and pictures. Insider: I have never been called pretty boy that much in my life. (I hope you guys read the reviews!)
Informative. Well organized. But if u have a child, it will be better to book another one. There is a lot of tours where u shouldn't pay for children.
This was a great tour. Our guide Rok had a lot of interesting information to tell and the glacier lagoon was pretty amazing.
It was amazing to see the icebergs and the glaciar, although it is really far away!!
