Our guide Omar was friendly, fun and full of knowledge about the area. He is obviously very proud of his island country and loves to share stories. My only complaint, and it’s a small one, is they we would have enjoyed another 10 minutes in the geyser area. Overall a great tour and an excellent experience.

Brilliant experience, the weather was against us but Devin (not Kevin lol) and HBO made it an amazing adventure. My only gripe is the fact they ask you to be half an hour early for pick up but then turn up late anyway. Nevertheless wouldn’t hesitate to use them again

Lots to see . Amazing landscapes. Our guide Devon akka kevin was great fun and very well informed on all things Icelandic. Cant pick a highlight as each stop was amazing.

Very beautiful tour... In 10 hours you can experience a lot of natural beauty

Perfect, organized, great adventure, first class services
