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
