Good, fun guide, great places (except ice cream farm, see below)

It was a very impressive, informative and entertaining tour. I learned a lot about Iceland. The only thing that frightened me and made me negative are very badly emaciated calves on the farm where Icecream is sold, even the advertised chickens with names had almost all bald spots on their backs and breasts. From an animal welfare far from good. I hope the calves get breast milk again, the cows of the farm give milk in rough quantities.

I’m not usually a tour person but I had 2 days in Reykjavik by myself without a car and this was the absolute perfect way to do some sightseeing. Our tour guide was super friendly and knowledgeable and I loved every stop we made, and the added tomato greenhouse and dairy bonus! It was definitely worth a few extra bucks to be in a small van rather than huge tour bus. I had an amazing time and would definitely recommend this tour!

Visited all the highlights plus a lot of bonus side stops, awesome!

Visited Thingvellir (drove through park with stops at waterfall, lookout) Geysir (excellent gift shop), Gullfoss, and Efstidalur ice cream, Laugarvatn Fontana beach (boiling sand), and tomato farm lunch. Great day! Got back to Reykjavik before 5pm. Great tour guide!

Fantastik sites to visit and our guide "the Raven" and loads of stories and facts to tell. We got a great insight into Iceland, history, music, undergrund bread baking etc. Highly recommend EastWest as a touroperator

Super cool

Great insight into the nature of Iceland. Very nice guide who answered all questions. We had a spontaneous rebooking of the tour with upgrade (without additional costs) everything worked out great.
