The South of Iceland is a must-do for anyone visiting. I would highly recommend this tour as it took away all the stress of planning it yourself, the sites you see are incredible and it's an added bonus having a great guide and driver (Monika & Michal) who can talk through the history of Iceland. My partner and I really loved this tour and Monika was a great guide! She is really passionate about what she does which brought the tour to life. 10/10

This tour was my favorite experience in Iceland. The sites were amazing, and the guide and our driver were beyond kind and entertaining. To start, my aunt and I misunderstood the meetup time for the pickup stop. On the walk towards the stop, we saw the bus and flagged it down. They stopped and waited, which was so kind. July 28, was my birthday, and I didn't want to miss the excursion. On the ride to the sites, our guide gave informative history lessons, told funny stories, and shared a few of her life experiences. It felt like icing on a cake! When she found out it was my birthday, I received birthday wishes, a round of applause, and an extra stop for the tour. I wish I had asked her how to spell her name because she deserves to know how happy she made me feel. Towards the end, she recommended restaurants, grocery stores, and other attractions we should visit. Overall, this was an amazing tour, and I highly recommend it.

Had a great time, would definitely take this tour again, and would take other tours from this company. We saw a lot but never felt rushed. Sigfus our guide knows his stuff and his love for Iceland is infectious. Got to have a lovely chat with Halldor our driver. The south of Iceland is incredibly beautiful, can't wait to go back.
