    This was by far the best tour I did in Iceland. I honestly wish I had known about Troll tours before so that I couldn’t have booked all my tours with them. Our guide Michael was very nice and entertaining and made sure we had enough time to go see everything on the south coast. The glacier hike was also beautiful and the highlight of the trip and something I recommend everyone do!

Our tour guide, Jo un (sorry, idk how to spell his name; he is from Portugal) was very knowledgeable and very funny. He makes the whole day trip so much fun. He also have us learned about the name and the meaning of each place we were going. He also made sure over and over that we’re safe on the glacier hike, and we’re happy: enjoying it. We also get to try the Viking pushups haha. I’d love to take another tour with him next time.
