Great tour all around! Don't drive yourself when you can do this.

The staff at NiceTravel was helpful and organized, and made sure we got off to a great start. The small tour bus was much nicer than a big coach. It was comfortable, let us go places we couldn’t in a coach, and let us to spend more time at the sites. Robert, our tour guide, was great. He made sure we got the most out of each stop, and personalized the tour for each group. The stops were long enough so we never felt rushed, and we had plenty of time to ourselves to explore. Booking a room with private bath, we were the only couple taken to the Hotel Anna, which was a great experience by itself, with a quaint Icelandic feel, and attentive staff. The rest of the group at the guesthouse came back with some great northern lights pictures. The trip from Reykjavik to Jokulsarlon is very long, and if you want to see great waterfalls along the way, stop at a black sand beach, then see glaciers, the Diamond Beach, glacier lagoon, and take a monster truck ride to an ice cave, this is your tour.

Great experience with very minor hiccups

Overall we enjoyed the tour. Our guide, Ross, was amazing, friendly, informative and a very conscientious and safe driver. The activities were enjoyable and was a good fit for all members of our group (with ages ranging from 30 to 65). The ice cave was slightly flooded so we could only explore a small part of it. We did enjoy the ride over with our ice cave driver and guide Ragnor! We had an issue with booking the ticket due to technical issues with the site. They did offer us a discount but we could not use it for the tour that we had already booked. We were quite disappointed that they put our group (6 people) into two bedrooms only when the description said that the rooms would be doubles. It was fine but we would have appreciated being consulted first or atleast informed.

The trip is good as my expectation but there are some suggestions.

Beautiful hotel in countryside. The tour to ice cave is perfect and is a must see and also is the most important thing of 2 days tours. By the way, I suggest that the agency should choose another hotel more far and near the diamond beach, in this case we can save more time driving. Because many driving, we come back very late (about 00:30 of 3rd day). Second thing, i expect more for the hunting aurora. The guide just drive to hotel in country side and tell us to discover aurora by ourself in the night from 10:00. It’s not a part of tour, it’s free time activites. Conclusion: I recommend that you can chooose this tour also the golden circle tour + blue lagoon of this company but have to note some information given above. Thanks.

An excellent once in a lifetime experience I recommend for everyone!

We booked the Wild South Waterfalls, Black Beach & Glacier Hike package as part of our 25th anniversary trip and we had the time of our lives! Our guide, David, was fantastic. From the very beginning he treated us and the others on the tour like family, accommodating all of our needs! He went above and beyond to personalize the tour to our groups interest and abilities. He even went as far as recommending certain items at the restaurant we stopped at for lunch. We felt so comfortable and welcomed by David, and aside from all this the glacier hike, black beach and the waterfalls are once in a lifetime experiences we will never forget. Thank you David, and Nice Travel!

The best tour in Iceland with the best guide Antonio :)

Highly recommend this tour. There were 14 people only and this small party could make me enjoy much more than with many people. And our guide Antonio needless to say knowledgable and make atmosphere friendly and joyfully. The first day weather, there was accident and heavy rain so we couldn't go as scheduled but the next day Antonio showed us other things. And that night luckily we saw the Northern lights after that heavy rain. Glacier cave, Jokulsalon and Diamond beach are the best scenery I've ever seen. Thanks to Nice travel and Antonio for giving me beatiful memory in Iceland.
