This was a wonderful tour. The sites were beautiful and beyond anything I have ever seen before.
The motorcoach was extremely comfortable and even had Wi-Fi available. You could walk as much as you wanted or you could stay on the bus and still take in most of the sites. What made the tour even more special was our bus driver Piotr S. and Boi the tour guide. Both of these men were so personable and friendly and it was a pleasure visiting with them and hearing many other stories about Iceland.
I would recommend this tour to anyone as a preview of what all there is to see and do in Iceland.
Piotr was also able to show us where to leave the tour to save us having to take a taxi back to our hotel.
For some reason when I made the reservation we were told we had to pickup the tour at BSI bus terminal which was a 15 cab ride.
They then made other stops to pick up more people that were much closer to our hotel. That was the only beef I had.
Thank you Piotr and Boi for a great day filled with wonderful memories!
The sights themselves were great - despite the freeing cold - and overall it was a day well spend, managing to see a number of Iceland's natural attractions. The guide was informative and the stops reasonably well timed for morning coffee and then lunch. The collection and bus transfer process in the morning is less fun, you feel a bit like cattle and may get separated on the bus from your traveling companions. Some of the sights were busy, including the lunch spot at the geysers - in general our main concern for Iceland tourism is that they need to manage the volume of people better. The risk is too many people taking away from the natural beauty. Plus everything is so expensive...
If you are visiting for a few days only as we were then this is a good option to see a lot of the sights in one day.
If you only do one trip in Iceland this is the one!!! Not sure if it was luck, but the coach was extremely comfortable, which for the amount of time you spend on there is very handy. Our guide for the day was Artis, who was brilliant! Very knowledgeable, funny, and very good English. The sights of Iceland are breathtaking, the landscape and beauty of the county is something to behold. I would thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone that goes to Iceland. Don't forget a warm hat, it can get very cold at the waterfall!!
