Had an amazing time! Cora - our guide with Troll Expeditions was very patient and outgoing with the group. She gave a lot of great insight and information to the areas that we were visiting. You can tell that she is very passionate about Iceland. I also particularly enjoyed eating the Traditional Lamb Soup to keep me warm on the tour. It’s is a 3 day tour slammed together into 1 … so you see a lot in one day, which was great for someone who is time-poor, such as myself. Highly recommend as there are some awe-striking sights that you don’t want to miss!

Carlos was an outstanding guide! Weather was great and we got extra stops along the way. Never imagined seeing so much of Iceland in a single day! Highly recommend doing this excursion, it’s a MUST!!!
