Good balance

The expedition to the caves was exciting and both tour guides were friendly, experienced and informative. A unique experience. Doing a condensed golden circle tour was perfect and the balance to the day stopped the teens getting bored. The Greek tour guide was very knowledgeable and I would definitely recommend this trip. Doing both in one day reduced the amount of driving around and still saw the major land marks

Brilliant experience!

Myself and my partner went back to Iceland to do the things we didn’t get to do on the first visit. It was my partners birthday and I knew he wanted to do the golden circle and be a bit more hands on with activities/experiences and loves caves and anything to do with volcanoes so this was perfect! The driver and the tour guide were both very pleasant and helpful and would answer anything you needed to know. They were patient with us tall (perhaps unfit) people trying to crawl through certain parts and would offer a choice of two routes back. The driver led us back the way we came in and the tour guide would take the others on a slightly more challenging route. It was fascinating learning all about the lava trails and forming of the caves and an amazing sight. The storytelling was fun too (troll myths) The golden circle was amazing and definitely worth a visit the experience and the photo opportunities at the geysers is worth every penny! The only thing (and I don’t want to be negative about this trip) was just that they won’t agree to pick up in outskirts of Reykjavík, what would’ve took them 5minutes we had to walk 30mins to meet. Definitely recommended as a tour though and these tour guides and arctic adventures are very good at what they do. We did have a tour with another company and the guide was terrible.

Awesome experience! The tour guide/driver was a little late coming to our hotel because the tour company office gave the wrong hotel information. Otherwise, the tour was perfect!

I found with most things in Iceland they over-priced, and over-promise and under deliver. Unfortunately this was no different. The driver/guide use the word guide loosely was friendly, but we had to ask her questions, pry for information about Iceland and the places we were visiting. She was also a reckless driver - to the point where quite a few passengers made comment. The sights themselves were great - however my partner and I felt quite rushed on each of the Golden Circle stops - and we were constantly waiting for the same couple to return to the bus the guide didn't hurry them along.

Tour guide, Sveni?, I think, was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful with all aspects of the tour. Totally enjoyed all sights and the approx. 1000 meter lava caving was GREAT! Highly recommend.

Fuer das Wetter kan niemand etwas aber das der Guide immer im Auto sitzen bleibt und nur sagt: wir sind jetzt ..., ihr habt so und so viele min Zeit dann treffen wir uns wieder hier, war schwach. Jeder Audioguide gibt mehr information. Auch die 1,5 Stunden Wartezeit im Industriegebiet war deutlich zu lang, vorallem wenn man bedenkt das die Dunkelheit so schnell kommt. Die zwei Sterne sind fuer die Lavatour.
