We had two guides, Hallur and Ronan. It was because of them that this trip was so enjoyable! The waterfall was majestic and extremely windy. The geysir was tiny but still worth a visit. Then Hallur brought us for some delicious ice cream. It shocks the body to enjoy ice in the cold but the texture was just too good to put down the ice cream. Then, we went snorkelling with Ronan. Right off the bat, he was friendly and most kind. He got to know each one of us personally. He was a diver in the navy so you can rest assured that you're in safe hands! Ronan made the snorkelling experience like a party. We had so much fun. The waters were clear and mesmerizing. And the hot chocolate that comes after was the best thing ever. I was nervous about the cold before, but the cold didn't cross my mind at all while snorkelling. It was an awesome experience. Ronan was amazing too, as he always went out if his way to help us. Amazing trip overall! Highly recommended! The guides should get a raise too ;P

This was by far the best tour I did in Iceland. I honestly wish I had known about Troll tours before so that I couldn’t have booked all my tours with them. Our guide Michael was very nice and entertaining and made sure we had enough time to go see everything on the south coast. The glacier hike was also beautiful and the highlight of the trip and something I recommend everyone do!

Unfortunately we didn't get to see the northern lights, but we were offered a free ticket that we will use next time we go to Iceland. Crew were extremely helpful ans the board was also a nice one as well as drinks purchased on board

This tour was well worth the money, the guide “God” was amazing and really made this tour what it is, from the humour to the very cool facts about Icelandic history. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

An exceptional tour through a magical landscape delivered by an incredible guide (Oliver)! 5/5, I can’t recommend strongly enough, thanks so much! Dominic, London
