This tour was amazing. Could not have asked for much better in 3 days. When I had booked I was not too certain of what exactly the trip consisted of, but the experience was awesome and the guides were even better. The pickups were easy and on time, everything was very coordinated, the hotels were extremely nice, overall everything was worth the money. We got to see northern lights multiple times due to the assistance of our guide when we did the tour of the south. And all in all it’s been one of the best experiences I’ve had. Christina as a tour guide could not have been better. She was very interactive and passionate about it and gave a personalized experience that was tailored to what our group wanted with the extra time.

Great 3-day excursion that allows you to discover many sites in South Iceland, as magnificent as they are varied. Everything was perfectly organized, and special mention for our guides who accompanied us very well and were able to animate the many bus trips with all their anecdotes and information on the country as well as on the places visited. Finally, the accommodation offered was very comfortable. Only downside: the visiting times were sometimes a little too short on certain sites, but that's the game with this type of excursion.

David was an amazing tour guide and he spoke to us the history of all the sites as well as bringing us to all our check points on time. He was taking care of the group well especially during the glacier hike. Lots of places visited and he included appropriate rest stops during the way!

We had a nice and informative day! Christian was very friendly, attentive, sociable and he spoke German :)! Our wishes were always taken care of, so that we took a lot of nice memories with us! Many thanks and again at any time!

Christina is a wonderful tour guide. The plan is well communicated throughout the day, and she’s very attentive. We enjoyed the trip and would highly recommended it
