We did this tour with Reykjavik Excursions. This was a long day tour leaving at 8am and arriving back to Reykjavik around 8pm. We did this on our last day in Iceland and I would highly recommend this tour. The coach made a half hour stop at Ytri Tunga which is a well known seal colony. The seals weren’t far... More

Perhaps this place would have been best suited in summer. When we visited in late January the weather was miserable. Rainy, cold and with very poor visibility we hardly saw any of the sights as advertised on the website of gateway to Iceland. On hindsight this tour should have been cancelled as we didn't enjoy it as compared to our... More

We had a lovely tour guide who told many Icelandic stories and gave us the history of each place we visited. It was a long day with many hours on the bus, but a worthwhile trip.

This was my favourite day tour, worth every penny. It was the longest tour I had booked; 12 hours. There are many stops on the way but absolutely breathtaking and I actually felt like I was in another planet.

I travelled on this day tour on the 23 Nov, expecting to see the wonderful sights of west Iceland. It was quite a huge disappointment.... perhaps it was the winter season, but can't emphasise how disappointed I was. Didn't even get to see Kirkjufell. West Iceland is probably more spectacular in spring/summer as mentioned by one reviewer. Otherwise, don't bother... More

I'll preface by saying that this was an amazing excursion that I loved and the views/stops were breathtakingly beautiful. However, the roads were very icy (tour was 11/23/16) and there were a few potential stops that could not be accessed due to the recent weather. It seems to me that it would be best enjoyed in spring or summer, but... More

The is a long day of driving but we loved it. The scenery is amazing and there are a lot less tourists than other tours. We were lucky enough to be on a small bus uncrowded bus for our day. Our guide Svana was entertaining and knowledgeable. The cafe we stopped at for lunch was tasty but expensive, bringing something... More

This is a 12 hour trip. About 8 hours are spent sitting on the bus. About 2 hours are spent at gas stations for bathroom breaks and snacks. Only 2 hours are spent walking around and taking photos. The lunch break restaurant is okay but the entrees (meatballs or fish stew) cost about $25 U.S. The food at the gas... More
