Very nice and varied excursion. You see truly spectacular places and the guide and driver cares about visiting all the spaces that are advertised. Totally recommended if you want to know Iceland.

We loved the Snaefellsnes Peninsula tour. The tour guide was great and clearly loved the area. It was also nice to have such a small group, as we were able to make a couple of extra stops.

It was a perfect tour with our Islandic tour guide and his daughter Victoria. We went to many beautiful places, and also spent a very meaningful times together. Thanks for this! Takk
