What people are saying about Geysir

This was a cool day trip! Definitely recommend, the snorkelling was a highlight and such an amazing experience. We were even provided with chocolate bars after which was a lovely surprise. We had Kevin as our guide - he was very patient and kind, he's a 10/10 Our driver (I think his name was Johan?) Was so lovely and insightful. the van was very comfortable (with charging capability) and we even had a small ice cream break which was delicious.

The trip was amazing, Gretar was a fantastic guide. He was very friendly and taught us a lot about each stop of the tour. We were free to walk about each stop by ourself with directions from the guide. The snorkelling was an unforgettable experience and was the best part of the trip. Highly recommend this trip.

An experiential day to see a few sights and sledge to the Longjökull glacier. The break at the Geysirs could have been a little longer and we would have had time to eat. Now I had to buy bread in a hurry and eat them in a cramped bus. The guide JoJo was a professional guide with a good sense of humor.

Great value for the cost. It is an easy way to get a good look at what Iceland has to offer.

What an amazing experience. Magnus, our guide was also wonderful.
