    Late review as we went in August 2022. This tour was amazing in terms of the distance we covered and the unbelievable sights we saw in a day. Highly recommend diamond beach and the lagoon and so glad we made the trek from Reykjavik. All the waterfall stops were also breathtaking. The agenda was packed but not overwhelming. The guide/driver were informative and I enjoyed the narrative on the bus but there were a few incidents that I felt they were down right rude to guests. Sometimes this was for a somewhat valid reason (late getting back to bus etc) but other times it was completely over the top rudeness that wasn’t warranted in my opinion. Many times it was their own vague instructions that caused this tension. I get that they deal with a lot of problem people and can sympathize but I feel there should be greater consideration to customer service standards and principles.

    Very nice and eventful trip with many good stops and infinitely beautiful nature. The guide very knowledgeable and skilled. He should have been more insistent that people should arrive on time after the breaks, I think. The whole time someone came too late and we were very late. I would have liked to have known a little more about the trip in advance, e.g. that there was an opportunity to buy food. The guide would have liked to have told approx. where the boat trip went from in Jøkulsarlon, because I went down to the pier, where I could see boats, but so far away it was not at all. All in all, a very good experience.

    Awesome Tour / Well Worth it

    Our family had a great day going from Reykjavik. Note: It is a long 4.5 hr drive in the bus. We did stop at a great little road cafe with great food options, including Vegetarian options. The 1-2 hrs at the Glacier and Boat tour were awesome and absolutely beautiful. Well worth the cost of the tour. We must have see near 5-6 different types of landscapes and the pics were amazing. We saw 2-3 beautiful waterfalls on the drive down and back. This tour was well worth it and everyone in our family had a great time
