What people are saying about Iceland South Coast

One of our highlights in Iceland was this tour, the glacier lagoon and the boat ride was a dream. Diamond Beach was also stunning. The tour was customized to our needs and all of our requests were met. Our guide was very nice and very informative. The Black Beach was an adventure and we were more than enthusiastic about the Yoda Cave our guide suggested. The Yeep ride is a lot of fun! It was more than worth it :-)

We had a nice and informative day! Christian was very friendly, attentive, sociable and he spoke German :)! Our wishes were always taken care of, so that we took a lot of nice memories with us! Many thanks and again at any time!

Our guide was awesome and the vehicle (new Mercedes van) was extremely comfortable. . It was such a long day and we did the Zodisc boat tour which was the best part of the day!!! I would so recommend this

This was my second visit to Iceland. This tour was the best one I have been on between the two trips. Our guide Valthor was amazing. Great driver, knowledgeable and patient. Highly recommend!

Fantastic trip, nothing was to much trouble for the guide, an amazing experience :) Only issue was the Black Death, blew me tits off!
