You do spend more time on bus than on the sites. I am giving a 5-star rating becus if youre coming from a city like me (NYC), its not everyday that you can experience such landscapes. We were picked up at 7:20AM & dropped off around 9:30PM. We arrived to the lagoon around 1PM after only 2 stops on the way. The 1st stop was 15min & 2nd was 45min. With a departure of 7AM to an arrival time of 1PM, this is what made the ride incredibly long & tiring. However, the scenery you drive through is amazing: lava fields, mountains, glaciers, farmland & more- you won’t be disappointed! We were very lucky to have clear skies w/sunshine all day. The day before I actually drove through same route to take Katla Cave tour & we had rain/foggy skies. So while I repeated the same drive, I was grateful to enjoy the scenery this time. I wish we had more time when stopping at the sites. While I did take great pics, I feel like I didn’t have the opportunity to observe & take it all in. Each stop felt rushed.

This tour packs a huge amount into a long day— from the glacier lagoon to seals to diamonds on the beach ( tiny glacier bits washed up from the seas) you will see and experience extraordinary scenery. Our guide Rock shared anecdotes, history and funny anecdotes that brought the countryside into focus. The boat ride in the lagoon to see icebergs was stunning.

This was perhaps our favorite part of our Iceland trip. An absolutely amazing experience. If you only book one excursion on the island, do this!! Antoine was our guide and we adored him. He was hilarious and knowledgeable. Entertaining in three languages. A great way to see the nature of Iceland.

This tour was amazing! The guide, Matt, and driver, Tomek, were champions and made our experience so memorable and so fun! Loved it!

Tour guide was kind and perfect, too much perfect sightseeing, enjoyed a lot.
