What people are saying about Reykjanes

Cristina, our tour guide was excellent. Even when we could not experience the eruption of the volcano, she tried to compensate it with other sightseeing along our way to Blue Lagoon. She is a knowledgeable person and she entertained us with stories while driving. She behaved as a mother taking care of us in every single thing we need. Also, after the tour finished we asked her for tips on our trip and she kindly took the time to fulfill every concern.The best tour guide!

Didn’t get to see the volcano/lava due to inactivity but that’s the luck of the draw. But our tour guide, Balgur, more than made up for it and was amazing throughout. Took us to numerous great sights and spoke almost non stop about Iceland, it was great! The highlight was the blue lagoon at the end, a truly magical experience.

Our driver was amazing. Informative, engaging , responsible and considerate. Could have asked for a better day!
