What an awesome day, a long day but so worth it. The glaciers and icebergs were fascinating, displaying different shades of blue, green and grey/black stripes. Diamond beach was stunning. Lots of stops, great food stops too. This trip was the highlight of my visit. Highly recommended

It's been a long drive, but the guide has always been entertaining^^ Thank you so much for Tom and Albert! Iceland's nature is great, but Glacier lagoon is especially recommended. It's far and cold, but you should go!

This is a long drive but very worth seeing the black sand beaches, waterfalls, glaciers and Diamond Beach. Our tour director took many fun stops to show us the most we could see. We appreciated the diversity of the South Coast!

Long trip

This is a very long trip. The glacier was spectacular and if you absolutely want to see it take the trip. It is over 9h drive all together. The guide had very bad accent and it was hard to understand her. She wasn’t very friendly either. The bus was cold. If you want to go to the glacier maybe better choice is to drive.

Didn’t get pictures with waterfall which is what we really wanted. Sat waiting for guests over 30 minutes so got late and ran out of time it was too dark and late. We were rushed due to this. Boat rides were cancelled not their fault but overall just rent car.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Dear Reanna, Thank you for taking the time to give us some feedback! This tour takes you to the Seljalandsfoss waterfall, one of the most spectacular ones, that we have in Iceland. Can you explain why you were not able to take pictures of it? Have a wonderful day and we hope you are enjoying your time in Iceland!
