Once in a lifetime experience

Rose was a wonderful tour guide and was helpful answering questions, taking pictures etc. The black sand beach, glacier and both waterfalls were gorgeous. The only complaint I have is the time issue (I've seen this addressed in other reviews). The first restroom/snack break was not really necessary, we were only a short time out of Reykjavik. The time at Skogafoss was way too short --- many wanted to climb the stairs to the top, but we were told there wouldn't be enough time. Leaving out the 1st stop and adding that time to the Skogafoss stop would have made it perfect.

This was one of the best tours we did in Iceland. We got to see so much stuff and our tour guide and driver even stopped at a few extra spots. Our tour guide Iga made this such a fun experience and we would highly recommend taking a tour with her.

Every part of this trip was beautiful and well planned. Our leader Perl was fabulous. We had more than adequate time at each stop and information about the walk was explained. Everyone could decide how easy or difficult the walk would be to be safe

Great trip to the south of Iceland
Maria_G
, Jun 2022
Great relaxing trip. We saw some breathtaking waterfalls. We also visited the black sand beach and one glacier. We felt the trip was a bit rushed but it may have been due to the fact that some people delayed the trip in the morning. Definitely recommend to see the south of Iceland. Make sure to take raincoats for the waterfalls.

Fantastic day tour to Iceland’s south coast

We had an amazing experience in our full day tour to the South Coast. Our tour guide Monika was beyond amazing. Helping everyone to get pictures and showing us some Icelandic music. She was also very knowledgeable about Icelandic culture and kept us fully entertained and engaged during the whole day! Also a special mention to our driver Sewerin that even made some extra stops so that we could enjoy further this amazing day 😊

Very fun trip! Funny tour guide. Not enough time at Seljalandsfoss though. We felt like the time wasn’t divided well per spot, for instance we’d suggest a slightly shorter lunch break.

Last minute east coast day trip
antonia_r
, May 2022
Booked as a last minute thing and we were so amazed on how good the day was. Everywhere we went was so pretty and had enough time to see things properly but not too much that would get bored. The guide was also very funny. If I don't make a mistake his name was Iosif.
