Had an amazing time! Cora - our guide with Troll Expeditions was very patient and outgoing with the group. She gave a lot of great insight and information to the areas that we were visiting. You can tell that she is very passionate about Iceland. I also particularly enjoyed eating the Traditional Lamb Soup to keep me warm on the tour. It’s is a 3 day tour slammed together into 1 … so you see a lot in one day, which was great for someone who is time-poor, such as myself. Highly recommend as there are some awe-striking sights that you don’t want to miss!

I was picked up about an hour late , the weather was miserable and the drive super scary but let me tell you, the driver john was impressive , it took a lot out of him to drive us around and he did an amazing job getting us safely to the destinations and back to hotel

This was the best among the day tours! We have experienced the Blue Lagoon, Golden Circle, South Iceland but this tour toped it all! The tour guide/driver really took his time and very informative. He also made extra stops for taking photos. The way to the western coast was amazing!! From lava fields, to mountains, to fjords, random waterfalls and rivers and to the main sight-seeing destinations.. The best untouched nature we have ever seen.
