Beautiful countryside. Very nice ride. The stops (Thingevellir, Gullfoss, Geysir/Strokkur) are unique and the tour guide did a nice job of explaining the history and significance of the item in Icelandic and world culture. Easy to get to the pickup point(s), very nice bus ride with WiFi. The tourist shops at each stop were warm and well-appointed, with good food.

Tour guide was very fun, knowledgable, told us great facts/stories. The drive was very smooth and safe. The sites were great, could have done with a little more time at each place as at times felt very rushed.

Bus company on time ,so good start, got even better with Devon ( from Arizona) our tour guide being highly knowledgeable, made the tour an excellent choice for visiting for a few days.

Gids vertelde heel veel liet de deelnemers vrij gaf voldoende tijd.

Awesome tour with an awesome guide. Devin was really funny!
