Excellent Tour Guides and Very Nice Visit into the Caves

The tour van was slightly delayed getting to my stop for pick up. But then I can understand as they have to pick up various folks at multiple stops. One person delays it affects all others in the chain. The tour guides were very friendly, knowledgeable and did a fantastic job of getting us to the spot and helping get into the cave and complete the tour successfully. It does have some spots inside where you have to crawl and for younger age folks it should be fine. My knees not being in greatest shape, I had a little difficulty getting past these tough spots. Overall, the tour was very educational and really enjoyed this unique experience. I'd definitely recommend this to any one seeking an experience seeing inside an actual cave created by the process after cooling of the lava from volcanic rocks.

A little bit extreme tour becouse of Icelandic weather

Experience in the cave was very interesting, but some places were very narrow, so this tour doesn't fit very tall and big persons:) The golden circle was quite extream because of Icelandic weather (Guide said: "Enjoy the weather!"), but everyone should have good clothes for the windy and rainy weather. It was a combo tour. So a lot of time spent in pick up / drop offs (at the morning, at the middle of the day, in the evening) - so actual time for the tour was shorter.

Interesting excursion. Took their time. Did not rush.

It was a nice excursion. The pick up and drop off was convenient enough (the guide dropped us off at our hotel). The activity is interesting and informative. The only thing I would improve is for the guide to fully wait for everyone to arrive at the next stop before they start talking and explaining and also to let anyone who wants to, to take pictures. We had a couple of ladies that took too many pics and by the time they finished, we mostly had to continue...

Wilmer did a great job, was very knowledgable about all the sites.

Great tour. We didn't read the description well enough so the cave was a bit more adventure then we'd planned on, but would not have missed it. Wilmar was great! He knew everything on the tour, but also was willing to answer every question about Iceland, from education to cost of housing, history to culture. Weather was terrible, but we still had a great time. Will recommend highly, but dress for cave and weather.

Great full day tours, should not be missed.

The guides for the lava caving excursion were fantastic, making it an unforgettable experience. The Golden Circle is definitely a ‘must’ not to be missed. Unfortunately the gUide for this tour hardly provided us with information.
