What people are saying about Eyjafjallajökull Volcano

Myself and my partner had a brilliant time on this guided tour. We saw more than we thought we would from the description, had multiple breaks to stretch our legs/go to the toilets/get something to eat which was needed as it involved a lot of driving but so worth it as the views were amazing. Our tour guide, Ingo, was very friendly and talked about his experience of living in Iceland throughout the day along with interesting facts out Iceland. We would completely recommend this tour (we went in June 2022)

Super nice tour and great glacier hike! All guides from Nicetravel went out of their way to create a unique experience and show the beauty of the island, including stops at places that aren't the typical "tourist waterfalls", the 12 hours are used! The guide Jonas was very nice and helpful and we had a very good and fun return trip with Nikola. I would book the tour again in a heartbeat!

Our guide, David from Nice Travel, was great. He was very knowledgeable and his passion for Iceland shone through. He was very supportive of my wife who was nervous of the glacier walk, which was kind. A great tour, would highly recommend - especially the glacier walk!

The best guide ever ☺️ Mika was just amazing ☺️ it was such a beautiful day that we will never forget. Thank you for everything.

I would recommend this activity. Our guide Jonas (not sure how to spell) was amazing! We really enjoyed it!
