We had a great time, Ronan was an excellent guide! Snorkeling was amazing as well as all of the other stops on the Golden Circle tour. We had ample time at each stop to take pictures, etc & never felt rushed. Lunch at the farm was delicious as well. I highly recommend!!

Ronin was an awesome guide. We started having fun from the moment we got on the bus. The stops along the way are amazing. Everyone was so happy and helpful, especially when getting all of gear on for snorkeling. The morning stop at the bakery and the lunch stop at the farm were so good!!

We had two guides, Hallur and Ronan. It was because of them that this trip was so enjoyable! The waterfall was majestic and extremely windy. The geysir was tiny but still worth a visit. Then Hallur brought us for some delicious ice cream. It shocks the body to enjoy ice in the cold but the texture was just too good to put down the ice cream. Then, we went snorkelling with Ronan. Right off the bat, he was friendly and most kind. He got to know each one of us personally. He was a diver in the navy so you can rest assured that you're in safe hands! Ronan made the snorkelling experience like a party. We had so much fun. The waters were clear and mesmerizing. And the hot chocolate that comes after was the best thing ever. I was nervous about the cold before, but the cold didn't cross my mind at all while snorkelling. It was an awesome experience. Ronan was amazing too, as he always went out if his way to help us. Amazing trip overall! Highly recommended! The guides should get a raise too ;P
