This was my fourth tour in Iceland and by comparison I have to say that I liked the other tours better. The group is very large with about 50 people. You are very anonymous and contactless on this tour, which I personally think is a shame. The timing was far too tight for the geyser, the time was reasonable for the other sights. During the trip, there was a lot of information about Iceland and sights. I would recommend this tour.

Overall great experience!! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and definitely added a great deal to our day! The sites visited were absolutely beautiful and I’m very pleased that we were able To experience them. My only displeasure was that I chose the tour with the higher price because it included hotel pickup. After booking, I was advised that the bus wouldn’t be able to pick up and drop off at my hotel. Instead, I needed to meet at a bus stop to picked up by a bus, then transferred to another bus. Thankfully, it wasn’t a long walk to the pickup/drop off spot, but if I would’ve known beforehand, I would’ve selected the less expensive option that didn’t include hotel collection. Other than this, the tour was wonderful!

Overall enjoyable but I did not know what to expect at the destination and at the first park we were left on our own so I had no direction and did not know where to go or what to see. Aa a result I do not think I got a good experience and did not see much. Also had to use the restrooms and did not have enough time to see what I wanted to see after I figured out where to go.
