One of the best days of our trip and my husbands absolute favourite! The whole day was amazing from start to finish. Our guide Niki was brilliant witty informative and very accommodating answering all our questions. She also had great taste in music! A lot of guides bombard you with too much information all at once she told us as as and when we needed to know which was great because that way you actually listen. She made a few extra stops because the whole group was always back at the times she gave us. A farm where we had freshly made ice cream was a nice addition. One lady was quite ill at the waterfall instead of having her walking down some very steep steps not a good idea when your feeling sick and dizzy to the the pick up point she drove back up to the where the rest rooms were to pick her up. The Blue Lagoon was the perfect finish to a very long but amazing day.

It may seem a lot of money for a day trip but it was worth every penny. We had a fab day, never felt rushed in any of the places we stopped. The bus was comfortable and our tour guide Reynir was lovely and very knowledgeable. He kept us entertained with stories about Iceland and their way of living as well as pointing out points of interest. Would definitely recommend

Third and final tour we did in Iceland and this time with Nice Travel. The collection was easy, although we were surprised to be wearing face masks on the bus when the previous day with a different operator we hadn't, but it was no problem. I also contacted Nice Travel to confirm how much cash would be needed; however, none is needed and it is GYG error that needs updating. The tour was great, it wasn't always clear what we were doing at each stop but we followed the crowds and always ended back at the coach at the right time. The guide was great, really informative but spoke the whole time so after a while it just became white noise. Everything on this tour was amazing to see and would highly recommend it to anyone. The Geysir, Kerid Crater and Gullfoss were all stunning but finishing our holiday at the relaxing Blue Lagoon was perfect! Amazing facilities, helpful staff and a lovely experience.
