The trip to Kayla glacier was amazing and one of the best days of our trip to Iceland. The off-road journey to the glacier was great fun and the cave itself was special. Our guide was knowledgeable and engaging and added to the experience! Would recommend this type of trip to anyone visiting the island!
My parnter and I visited Iceland for the first time recently and this was a real highlight of the trip. The ice cave is truly stunning, the staff are friendly and knowledgeable and the whole excursion was a lot of fun!
Just a fantastic trip with Vala. I have spent a really good day with Vala and I am the only tourist with her. The glacier hiking is spectacular and all the waterfalls are amazing. During the tour, Vala told me a lot of things about Iceland, she made the tour so interesting.
This was a really great tour, experiencing such special places of Iceland. Our very nice Norwegian guide was experienced and helpful.
It was one of the best moments of our life which we would never forget as Mr Jon took care of us like a special guest .He was really a fabulous human being we ever met. The best part was we enjoyed every sight seeing with him as he educated us about the place history and the true culture of Icelander.Viral Shah India
From all the touristic attractions, we found this one as one of the best. We highly recommend it.
Even though the weather was very bad, our guide Jessica managed to make it a very enjoyable hike. She is skilled and very knowledgeable that we decided to put a review for the first time just to thank her for this beautiful experience .
Thank you Jessica.

Just finished our glacier hike and ice cave tour with Boris that we only booked the night before. We loved it. It was chilled and informative and we enjoyed it very much as a couple. Boris is attentive to the group and there are so many amazing views (and thus photo opportunities!)
ery friendly and professional Samantha was able to explain everything with details about the Glacier Skaftafell hike how to walk and how to use the equipment correctly, me and my group we really enjoyed this experience very much and also visiting the Ice cave.
We just finished our experience with a big smile and this will be an incredible memory.
Thank you Samantha for being our great guide, was nice to have conversations with you!
I really raccomand this great experience!
Wake Up Reykjavik has been a solid company to work with. Since booking, April has done an excellent job in communicating everything I need to know to get to where I needed to be. Our tour guide was Daniel. This was a great experience, because it did not feel so much like a tour, but just some people out for drinks. We went to 4 separate bars. The beers were delicious and the bars chosen were great. The "sample" size in Iceland was a bit more than I was expecting which was a nice surprise. Daniel had a great knowledge of the beer history and was very open to questions. Overall awesome experience from the company all around.
Best Bar Crawl in Reykjavik!
Had so much fun on the Wake Up Reykjavik bar crawl!! All of the included bars and clubs were really cool and unique and the drinks were great. We had a really great group and mix of different people and even after the bar crawl ended, we all stayed together and partied the rest of the night. Thanks to Egill for being an awesome host and making sure we had a great time. I went as a solo traveler and it was a great way to make friends. Would do it again in a heartbeat!!
We had so much fun on our food tour with Agnes. We were able to visit many of the restaurants that we wanted to try on our trip, all in one night. We had delicious fish, lamb soup, the famous Icelandic hot dog with all the trimmings, cheese, cured meats and rye bread ice cream. Agnes was a wonderful host and she was very knowledgeable about Icelandic food and Iceland. We had a very good time walking around Reykjavik and hearing her stories. She is a pop star and her music was playing in the bar we visited to sample Icelandic beer. I would highly recommend this tour.
We did a good tour with Agnes, it isn’t everyday that you get an actual musician to show off her home town and food. We had a great time and the food was all really good. The fish, meat and cheese and the hot dog and ice cream were all very good. Agnes is very proud of her beautiful country and is very in touch with the local scene. She gave us a surprise treat at the end of the tour. She was a great host. She even gave us tips on the local music scene. You must do this tour.
Eyglo walked us through town with 5 very different types of restaurants. This was a great way to kick off our vacation as we quickly learned what types of food we like. Eyglo made sure there was a great vibe throughout our time with the group and couldn’t have asked for a better food tour. Cheers.
We took two back to back day tours with Your Day Tour. Gusti was our guide for the South Coast Tour and he was simply amazing. We lucked out with good weather that day so he made some extra stops that were not on the itinerary including the Sólheimajökull. It was a long day but we saw a lot and had plenty of time at each stop without feeling rush. I highly recommend Your Day Tour. Their vans are really comfortable too. You will not regret it!
I really enjoyed this tour, despite it raining quite hard throughout the whole day! The stops were breathtaking and so unique. Our guide Bjorn was fantastic. He was funny and fun and his love of Iceland showed throughout the whole tour.
Just finished a wonderful day with Sif on a journey to the southern most city in Iceland We saw waterfalls Walked behind waterfalls Walked to a glacier. And learned so much history and culture about Iceland. The stops allowed plenty of time for each experience without being rushed. Plenty of time for snacks, lunch, and bathrooms. Then the ride home with soft Icelandic music, drink and snack! Wow Thank you, Sif.

I took the Southern Route tour from Busta travel with Julia. Not only have i taken many single day trips in different places around the world i myself am a former tour guide and professor of world history. So in that context let me say Julia did a wonderful job! She has all the skills necessary to be a great guide.
We got to see so much! My highlight was the glacier as I had never walked on one before. The waterfalls were impressive and the black sand beaches gorgeous. The shapes lava can take on are endless.
Had a really nice time one the Sailing boat out of Husavik, even got to help put up the sails which was a treat. Got a great view of the whales they came really close to the ship was a truly enjoyable experience. The crew were lovely explained lots about the whales and provided Hot Chocolate and cinnamon buns on the way back to help keep us warm.
IONA. Her name is Iona, our guide for our whale watching voyage. Iona (yes, purposefully saying it one more time) was the trip. As my wife said, "Iona is our memory of the trip to Iceland..."
The schooner, the rough seas, the winds, the exceptional captain and yes, Iona made the trip nothing short of perfect.
Yes, we saw some whales. The bow of the schooner dipped deep, spraying us along the way, the whales came up for air and dove deep into the Husavik bay, and the winds blew. We were just 20 miles south of the arctic circle. It was magical.
This was a wonderful, fabulous, tour. We visited the Golden Circle sights and also a wonderful working farm and greenhouse facility. The food was wonderful, the conversation inspiring. We finished the tour at farm that teaches visitors how Icelandic rural families lived. The hosts in every site were gracious and welcoming. The tour guide was knowledgeable and provided a thorough overview of this interesting locale.
Our tour guide and driver were absolutely great - they made a huge difference as the weather was not great. The tour guide ( his name was Day ) had plenty of stories, jokes, information and even a song at one point! The sights were great and the service was very efficient. I can definitely recommend this company.
I went on the Game of Thrones tour, there were 10 of us including our tour guide, Armund, who was very friendly and knowledgeable about both Iceland and Game of Thrones.
Saw some wonderful sights that were involved in the filming of Game of Thrones, as well as a few others. In terms of sights seen, many of us on the tour actually preferred this one above the Golden Circle tour.
Would thoroughly recommend to anyone visiting Iceland, whether you are a GoT enthusiast or not! (you will enjoy the sights regardless)
Pick up on time from hotel. Comfortable smart bus. Funny,informative and interesting guide Gathspurr. Great sites. Waterfalls. Geysers.Tectonic plates. Plenty of time to view/visit each attraction. Well structured day. Never felt rushed. Fantastic day ended with swim in the secret lagoon.
Visited the secret lagoon and golden circle for my 50th birthday. I had an amazing day, lots of fantastic things to see and enjoyed finishing the day in the secret lagoon.
Thoroughly enjoyed the tour, especially the secret lagoon! Ivor (?) our guide and driver was an absolute hoot and made a good tour great. Would recommend this company to anyone wanting to book a Golden Circle Tour.
While the sight of the whales was amazing.... and the 50+ dolphins were enjoyable, it was the sound of the whale taking in a giant breath of air before doing a deep dive that mesmerized me. The creatures are massive, and North Sails from start to finish tried their best to make our trip comfortable, enjoyable, educational, and adventurous.
We were lucky and had fairly calm seas, saw multiple whales, enjoyed the cinnamon buns and hot cocoa, and we had an absolute blast.
This is one of those tours where you likely need the weather to be in your favor, but for us, we loved the entire thing. Highly recommend North Sails and their incredible crew!
Fantastic experience , hump back whale gave us a fabulous show ! Very knowledgable guide and so passionate about the environment and well Being of whales
Great ethical company. Enthusiastic host. Lucky enough to see a minke and humpback whale. Great overalls that kept us warm. They moved away when other boats followed our 'spot'. Recommend this company.
