Overall, we had a great day out. The guide was very welcoming, funny and engaging, and the other staff (both the bus driver and snow mobile guides) delivered a safe and enjoyable experience. It was a very long day (10-11 hours) but even so we had a lot to cram into the journey. Sadly we had a very short time at some of the stops which meant that in some cases we didn’t go to fully explore the sight because we were concerned that we would miss the stop or the refreshments. I’m not sure if there were trips which perhaps didn’t include the snowmobiling but I would perhaps split them up next time in favour of getting more time to explore the sites. But other than that, I couldn’t fault it.

Overall a great experience. There was enough time to enjoy at the geyser, but we would have liked a little more space in the national park and at the waterfall - everything was a bit rushed here, a pity. But our guide Stefan was great - gave us a lot of information. And even partly in German - especially our youngest made a lasting impression.

Our guide Höskuldur Frímannsson (the only reason I write his name correctly is because I asked them for a ticket!) Was fantastic and very enthusiastic, informed us well about the country and its secrets. Visited a few highlights at the golden circle. I like a quick schedule. And then on with a gigantic truck bus to glacier and over an hour with a snowmobile over the snow and jjs plain. In a word! genius!!
