The guide was amazing. Lots of neat little facts as we drove through different regions of Iceland. The only draw back is small group does not mean the same thing I’m use to with other tours roughly 18 or so in the group. The mini bus was nice but the seats are made for much narrower butts. Almost everyone on the tour complained about this (even the really skinny folks). But all the buses there were this way so I don’t count that against the tour company just something people should plan for.

Breathtaking scenery

We took a giant bus tour of the Golden Circle, so I decided on a small bus tour for the Southern Coast. What a difference. Thor, our guide, was informative and funny. His concern for our safety and the weather conditions was welcome. The day was rainy so we were soaked, but it was worth it for the Black Sand Beach, the glacier and the waterfalls. The scenery is otherworldly and unforgettable. Because of the fog, we couldn't see much of Vik, but that was the only loss because Thor made sure we got to everything else during daylight. Loved this tour!

Beautiful landscapes, a must do

Siggi, our guide collected us on time and was very informative throughout the day as well as providing us with lots to laugh about between stops. This is a great way to see more of Iceland's stunning landscapes whilst learning about them at the same time. We would definitely recommend booking as a smaller tour for a more personal experience, worth every penny. Highlights included taking a stroll on the black sand beach, taking in the beautiful sights of the Myrdalsjokull glacier and walking behind a beautiful waterfall.
