Really enjoyed the tour. Climbed a waterfall and went behind one. Also black beach was very interesting. Lots of time at each stop. Stopped at Vik for lunch. Lots of places for bathroom breaks. Driver Miko was very skilled and our guide Jano (probably spelled wrong) gave us lots of interesting info. She was able to avoid the rain most of the time.

Our 2nd bus tour of our one week stay. We were delighted to be able to see Vik and its black sand beaches with this tour because we had given up on it to get there on our own without a permit. In addition to that, our guide, Geri, warned us well against the rogue waves and the dangerousness of these beaches. I would have paid less attention if I went there alone. The other stops we made, in particular the Skogafoss waterfall, were really impressive and completely blew us away. The information given by the guide was very interesting and despite tight timing for each stop, we took advantage of every second. I really recommend the tours available on Get your Guide. Very easy to book, and allows peace of mind of organization and the assurance of having information from Icelandic with our guides.
