Our guide and driver, Mr. Hjalti Björnsonn was outstanding, really top-top. He took care about us on an excellent way till the very last minute, his knowledge about Iceland was fantastic! He gave us a few extra chances to see even more, than it had been promised. Everything was precisely organised, we were really satisfied. We do hope so, that he will be our guide our next Iceland trip again in sometime next February. The only remark is the overused and that's why a bit uncomfortable seats. After 2-3 hours travelling we were happy to stand up. The hotels were nice, most of them were really excellent.
Nachdem die Tour 2x verschoben werden musste (zuerst mangels Teilnehmer,danach wegen zu hohem Wellengang),wurden wir auf ein kleineres Schiff zugewiesen.Es hat teilweise stark geschaukelt und wir waren um die Reiseübelkeitskaugummi extrem froh.Es hat ca 2 Stunden gedauert,bis wir den Wal und die Delfine gesehen haben.Es hat sich aber gelohnt.Es war ein super Erlebnis!Da die Tiere eine spektakuläre Show zeigten,konnten wir länger bleiben und sind dann erst na 4 Stunden zurückgekehrt.Sehr empfehlenswert die Tour.
Great time had at myvatn and good to have paid in advance. My only niggle is that getyourguide have the impression there were only a couple of places left at the baths and if we didn’t book we wouldn’t get in, but in reality it was really quiet and there was probably no need to prebook! It was a beautiful place and one we would recommend
The guide was terrific, very knowledgeable. We saw multiple whales. Only complaint was the ride back we encountered a lot of waves and the boat was going very fast. Lots of pounding on the seas, with several hits so hard that I injured my back. It’s been a week and I am still experiencing difficulty bending over and walking a lot.
Easy to book online. Warm overalls to wear outside. Bit slow to find whales, about an hour. But then followed a pair for some time as they dived and came up again. 4 instead of 5 as friends saw humpbacks, minke and puffins from a trip in Reykjavik. Appreciate it's the luck of the draw.
