What people are saying about Northeastern Region, Iceland

This was such a great tour! I had Karen as my guide and she was awesome - knowledgeable, funny, and super nice! There was the perfect amount of time at each stop to take pictures, get souvenirs, etc. I would have preferred a little bit more instruction as to actually getting on the bus - I didn't get an email or anything saying that pick up would be on a transit bus and that I would change to a tour bus afterwards (same with the Blue Lagoon - I thought that I would be on the same bus the whole day).

This was a fantastic, all-day tour that our whole family enjoyed. Ghe bus was comfortable, the guide hilarious, and the stops were exactly what we'd hoped for. The Geysir and ue Lagoon were highlights.

Well worth the money. Our tour guide was amazing. Full of energy, knowledgeable, and most importantly timely! Was probably the best trip we went on for the price! Loved it.

Even on a stormy day our tour guide made this experience fun and the sky lagoon was a perfect ending to the day!

It was great, right timings, funny driver & guide, unforgettable experience
