Rarely when we travel do we take actual tours, but this time with limited time in Iceland, we felt these tours would be the way to go. We booked two tours on two separate days with Get Your Guide, East West Tours, and they worked out perfectly. We definitely saw more than we would have done by driving ourselves, and we were given adequate time to do what we wanted at each place. Each location was certainly worthwhile, and beauty abounded everywhere! Our guide, LeRoy, was affable, knowledgeable and quite entertaining! Thanks for helping make our visit easier and memorable.

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!

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.
