Absolutely gorgeous tour!! So many incredible views, all the waterfalls, the black beach, the rocks, everything was so picturesque and beautiful. It was also a very peaceful and relaxing tour. We got to see everything and had enough time at all locations. Our guide and driver HBO was very nice and entertaining. He played amazing Icelandic music during the drives to the locations, and it was a very nice touch! Would 100% recommend!!!!

This trip is exactly what it promises to be: a well-planned and well-executed full day excursion to a beautiful place rich not only in breathtaking sceneries but also in culture and history, all of which are extremely enoyable in the company of all the nice people and the friendly, funny, smart guide I met. I can only recommend it to anyone interested in Icelandic culture, nature, and the stories they still tell - either in the form of the unforgettable saga-sites or as some notable places for film-shootings recognized by many people all around the world. All the stops are valuable (with context provided by the guide) and there are never too great distances between them, which makes this trip perfect for all ages. The bus gives enough comfort to enjoy this trip even in bad weather, but nothing is comparable to the minutes when the sun comes out every now and then to accompany the travellers on their magical journey through one of the most astonishing places of Earth.

Die Tour kann man nur empfehlen. Bei der Tour ist alles geboten -Fjorde, Vulkane, Gletscher, schwarze Sandstrände, Seerobben- Wir hatten einen super einheimischen Guide "Simon", welcher uns während der Fahrt und an den Haltestellen viel Info's gab. Wir waren eine kleine Gruppe und die Atmosphäre war lässig und unkompliziert. Wir hatten an den Haltepunkten genug Zeit alles anzusehen, die Landschaft zu genießen und Simons Erzählungen zu lauschen. Das ganze wurde noch mit eine Kaffeepause und einem leckeren Mittagessen abgerundet. Einfach super :) :)
