Great way to see the country, understand it's peculiarities, experience different sights and of course swim in hot water whilst the air temperature is below freezing. Pick up was on time and transfer at the bus terminal was organised to perfection. Our guide was very informative and always on hand to answer any questions, time at each site was just enough allowing time for comfort breaks and drinks.

We had a great time on the tour, our guide Ralph was very friendly, funny and informative. Unfortunately the day we went the road to thingveller park was closed because of bad weather so we didn't get to go there but Ralph brought us to see and pet some Icelandic horses on a farm which was actually the highlight of my day!

What a fantastic experience! Our tour guide, Wally, was a lovely bloke who mixed cheesy jokes (at his own admission) with really interesting historical facts about everything from Iceland's Volcanic activity to the pride shown for it's unique Horses that roam the farmlands. We had enough time in each location to take photos and immerse ourselves in the moment whilst the bus was very comfortable and cosy when reboarding. The Secret Lagoon is simply amazing too! Absolutely loved how relaxing it was and the natural surroundings. Overall, a great trip worth every penny! :)
