Everything from start to finish was excellent - the sights were just outstanding and our tour guide was the best.
This tour was amazing, and while the sights would have been amazing regardless, this particular tour was made amazing because of our guide, Bjarki. We did several types during our trip, and Bjarki was the best guide we had - sunshine who truly loved his country and his job! We learned AND saw tons!
This tour was a great way to see the top spots in north Iceland. The guide was very informative and knowledgeable and had grown up in the area. My only criticism is the cost -$250 per person is a lot to pay, even though it is a 10 hour tour.
My friend and I are the only two travellers in this tour, so it became a private tour. But it is really good and the guide, B____forget how to spell his name is really really good. He shows his enthuasiasm answering all our questions. Always has simile and patient. Highly recommended.
Great tour. Great guide who appealed to all members of small group tour. No small feat. The members spanned three continents and ranged in age from 9 to 50.
Great to have a guided tour for the day to see the sites of northern Iceland. Nice small group style tour. Guide was super knowledgeable and fairly flexible with a tour got a few bonus stops since most of the group was quick. Unless you absolutely love 4x4 driving, this is the best way to see the Diamond Circle.
