Informative tour with an informative tour guide. It’s pretty immense a must do tour in Iceland. I mean it’s rare to see a cave that was once occupied by lava and was formed by an erupting volcano all those centuries ago. Very immersive experience and great.

Very safe, accessible experience. Tour guide was friendly with some hilarious "dad" jokes along the way. Would definitely recommend to anyone in the area!

It was an fantastic and unique experience. Our guide Ilva was so fun full, energetic and quite informative as well. I definitely recommend to everyone.

Absolutely worth seeing - is worth the money - the guide or guides do it with pleasure and fun and out of conviction ... you learn a lot ... just great

Great guide! Small excursion of 1 hour which is worth the detour
