Well Beyond Five Stars

Not enough superlatives for our tour guide Christina (sorry if misspelled). We were a family of six adults, and we all loved her wonderful sense of humor, vitality, wealth of knowledge, and overall just a lovely person. She made sure we were safe at all times, and was very encouraging. Nicetravel is an A+ tour operator. They are very well organized. Their bus was immaculate and very comfortable. Next time, we will book all our tours with them.

Amazing trip with our tour guide, Mika, from Nice Travel

We had an amazing trip with our best tour guide, Mika, from the Nice Travel agency. The trip was much beyond NICE. The landscape in Southern coast was amazing. We got amazed by the beautiful nature with mind-blowing waterfalls, cliffs, walking on a glacier, black sand beach. We were also lucky to see puffins as well! We heard from our tour guide group that the guide didn't even leave the bus. Our guide was extremely patient with us all the time. He was truly passionate about giving us the best tour and explaining a lot of interesting stories. Mika made the true different how we could experience the beautiful Iceland. We definitely recommend to take a day trip to South Coast and try with Nice Travel. Your one day trip will have a life-time memorable experience.

We had a great time. Our guide Eagget (if I remember correctly) made extra stops. He made trip more memorable and fun. I will recommend Nice Travel to other tourist. Small bus tour is the only way to see Iceland. During this trip we took 2 tours with big bus company and it was a disaster. Nice Travel has tours all over Iceland.

This was a great trip and our Guide, Magus Gunnerson made it even better with his knowledge of the area and the Island. Even though the weather was not the best, Magnus took us to the locations in the best order for the conditions, and also got us back safely in very difficult driving conditions. Highly recommend this tour

It was all amazing, the tour guide Brian was fantastic, keeping us entertained the whole trip with his knowledge, we loved the whole day. I would highly recommend this trip, the waterfalls are something else, the black beach spectacular (the waves were huge). This trip is a must

This is one of the best trips we had in Iceland. The tour guide Eidith (hope I spell this right) was amazing and knowledgeable. If you are looking to book a trip, we would definitely recommend going for a smaller tour like this instead of a big bus. It made a big difference (saying this from experience). Our highlight of the trip is the amazing sunset at Black Sand Beach! Just stunning

Perfect Day Top to Bottom

The glacier hike was one of the most incredible experiences. Our guide teamed up with the 2 day South Coast trip and having an extra guide with us gave us an opportunity to lean over the edge at the glacier. It was all challenging and yet, we never felt like we couldn’t handle it. While driving home, we stopped to watch the Northern Lights which was an incredible added bonus! Our guide was great with offering restaurant recommendations and must try ideas!

Amazing day trip with enough time to see the waterfalls. Great guides that provided us with insightful Iceland tips. The great weather was included ;-) I can definitely recommend this day trip to everyone. Walking on a glacier, enjoying the time at the black beaches, seeing puffins, watching several waterfalls and having a great time in no shorter than 24 hours, indescribable beautiful and recommendable!

From pick up to drop off, it was an amazing experience. Very well planned out. David, our guide, was excellent and "focused on the mission" all the time! Hes very enthusiastic and energetic, passionate about his work. The 4 falls we visited were breathtaking. The glacier hike was such an adrenaline rush! And the city of Vik with its black beach was very nice.

This trip is fantastic. It's long but totally worth every moment. You get to check so many things off your bucket list on one trip. We loved every moment. Our guide, Peter, was absolutely amazing. He made the experience even better for us, we didn't want to leave him! I would highly recommend this trip and this guide to anyone visiting Iceland who wants fun, adventure and a trip of a lifetime.
