A coupe of points to have in mind before you book: 1. Exhausting bus trip (14-16 hours day trip from Reykjavik). 2. Landmarks full of other tourist groups arriving simultaneously. Made the whole experience feel very much like you're in a low rent film. (Wouldn't surprise me if

This tour is a must do. The South Coast was in my view, the most scenic part of the country. This tour includes sights of volcanoes, waterfalls, glaciers, boat trip (additional cost but worth it), black stone beach, puffins and much more. Its a long day but the sightseeing is

Tomas our guide from Poland was fantastic. He was very well informed and friendly and had a great sense of humor. The tour was so much fun. We saw the waterfalls and black sand beach and went to a glacier. Everything was incredibly gorgeous. Freezing cold but worth it.

The excursion scenery itself is fantastic and great. We could not have asked for better sights. However, my husband and I booked this Small-Group Day trip where they crammed 20 people into a tiny bus. They should have only allowed for 15-16 max so people could sit comfortably.
