Adonis was amazing! He was very thoughtful in organizing our tour to keep us dry and also went the extra mile to add an important cultural aspect to our tour by immersing us in Icelandic music and sharing Icelandic traditions with us. It was an excellent day. Thank you Adonis!!

Even on a day when the weather wasn’t amazing we still had a great day. Our tour guide AJ was very knowledgable about everything Iceland and ensured we saw everything we were booked to see had sufficient time to enjoy and get photos. AJ showed a definite passion for his job which made the trip a great day, without this tour we wouldn’t of got all the added information about each area we visited. would definitely recommend

Such an amazing tour!!! Our guide Adonis was so great and was very knowledgeable about Iceland. He told us lots of facts about Iceland and was overall a really great energetic guide! Adonis also played Icelandic music for us during the tour which was great. We were very lucky and had a lovely sunny day, we even got to see a rainbow at Skógafoss. To top the tour off we saw the northern lights on our drive home to Reykjavik. Such a worthwhile tour, would highly recommend!!!
