It was my first time visiting Iceland and I was so happy with this excursion! This excursion was booked the day before because the original Golden Circle day trip that we booked got cancelled but this tour ended up being cheaper than the other Golden Circle tour that we booked! And it included all the same stops!
I was a little nervous about the pick up because I was scared that we would be forgotten but the bus was right on time and came to pick us up right at our apartment/hotel! I was also worried about the weather, because the weather can be a little unpredictable especially in October but we got a beautiful day, it was cold but it did not rain which i was happy about! The bus was big and I was happy because I get car sick easily and I did not feel sick during this trip! There is wifi on the bus which was great because as you take the pictures of the places you visit, you can share them with your friends and family!
Johan and Frosti, our guides, were amazing! They told stories, talked about the history and geology of Iceland so we learned a lot about Iceland and the places we visited! And because we were right on schedule, we got to take an unplanned stop and pet some horses!! Also, you will never be forgotten at a location because they always do a head count of the people on the bus before leaving. One of the people on the tour got lost at one of the locations and Frosti went to find him. The person that got lost emailed the tour guide company Island Travels and they got into contact with Johan and Frosti and we made sure to wait for them to come back which made me feel safe.
Thank you so much for the wonderful experience! I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Iceland for the first time because it was fool-proof and so easy!
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!
