Booked this through Viator, with tour itself through Reykjavik Excursions. Big bus was clean & comfortable & not full (thankfully). These were the disappointments: We waited at the designated pick-up stop more than 30 minutes, there were numerous pick-up points which seemed to take forever, until all were transferred to the big bus. Twice onward, we had to drop off... More

We done the south shore day trip whilst in Iceland along with the golden circle and I have to say this option is so much better! If you only have the money for one do this! There's many different options for tour companies to do this trip so you won't be short of choice! This trip is stunning, it's a... More

I did this tour by myself as a way to see more sites in Iceland. Highlights of the trip include the waterfalls and the black sand beach. Keep in mind that it is a long day, these sights are spread out, so you will be on the bus for most of the journey. We stopped at a service station for... More

I think first and foremost i would like to say we love Iceland. Our trip was very memorable and the people of Iceland could not have welcomed us more. Now that is said, I would like to say this experience was probably our least favourite. It was a very plain and vanilla experience, by that i mean we were chauffeured... More

South shore adventure was a nice excursion away from Reykjavik exploring the gorgeous waterfalls and the glacier. If people are not too keen on spending time near the waterfalls but want to try a short walk on the glacier, it is a good idea to go for 'walk on the ice side' tour instead of South shore adventure. We had... More

Fully enjoyed this full day trip. You do spend a lot of time on the coach and not always enough time as some areas of interest but thiis is a great way to see a lot in a short time. Good value for money. Interest tour guide. Plenty of pit stops. I enjoyed the mini-bus as much quicker than a... More

This was a wonderful day out and the scenery was amazing. We saw waterfalls, volcanos, a black volcanic sand beach with some amazing cliff formations. It is not a cheap day out but well worth the money. I would take your own lunch not because the food was not good but after you had finished queuing you did not have... More

This is one of the best tours I have ever done. The places we visited and the scenery we saw was by far brilliant. I would strongly recommend doing this. The only thing is to remember is try to take your own food. This is not because of the cost but because time spent queuing for food, takes away the... More

It's a nice day trip outside Reykjavik. Sightseeing stops were made along the way, so the ride didn't seem long. The landscape is beautiful. One tip for everyone, pack your own lunch! The place for lunch stop is expensive and food quality is not good! More important is the line was so long. We wasted half an hour to finally... More
