Our tour around the south coast was on a less than favorable day weather-wise (plenty of wind and rain!!) but it did give us a great experience of winter in Iceland. The scenery was amazing and the locals were really friendly and accommodating. The one down-side was the bus itself - the passenger door was ill-fitting and we had to stop on a number of occasions to "re-seat" it so that the wind blowing through the gap didn't drown out the commentary. However, our driver Devin took this in his stride and maintained his calm and humorous approach through-out.

This trip was amazing , our tour guide HBO was the best . Very informative and educational . He took us to a spectacular spot for pictures which was extra , he allowed ample time for us to enjoy the scene . Loved his energy , would highly recommend this tour for anyone going to Iceland . Ofcourse the Icelandic music he played for us in between set the mood for the lovely journey . Highly recommend the tour guide .

Spent a lot of time trying to find the best tour for our budget. Weren’t fancying a large group and were looking for a personalised trip. And that is what we got! A small group, comfortable transport and an extremely friendly guide. We got to see the glacier, black sand beach and waterfalls! Asgier (guide) absolutely made our trip with all his funny stories and he absolutely went above and beyond to make our trip very special! The weather was incredibly snowy and wild. Asgier was not only a fantastic guide, but also a great driver! The journey looked treacherous at times! But he managed to get us everywhere safely and with good humour too. Absolutely suggest booking this trip.
