Omg this was the most amazing trip! We were lucky with snow the day before and sun on our trip so the views were incredible. Rega was a brilliant tour guide and Jack great as driver.

Although it was raining most of the day (we're bound to get wet anyway since we're visiting gorgeous waterfalls), the experience was great! The views and the destinations were spectacular, but they were made even more awesome thanks to our excellent tour guide/driver Bo! He clearly know iceland's history, lore, and attractions by heart and is always responsive and accomodating to our questions and requests throughout the whole trip. Would definitely recommend this tour to family and friends! Thank you again for the amazing trip!

Going on the South Coast tour in December was much more fun than you might imagine. Yoav (YoYo) was our guide and kept us very well entertained with stories and insights for the drive. It was really fun to hear the stories and legends to go with everything we were seeing along the way. He is a great storyteller. The drive is long but totally worth it to see everything. I especially loved the black sand beach and being at the ocean in the middle of winter. You can't go behind the waterfall in winter -- it truly would be dangerous with the ice that forms -- but it is still beautiful to see. We arrived when it was getting dark. The waterfall is illuminated and it makes for a beautiful experience. Our driver, RaffRaff, was great. I felt very safe on the whole journey. You could drive to all these areas on your own but I highly recommend taking the tour -- having the stories to go along with everything you're seeing makes it much richer.

Thank you very much, Carolyn, for taking time in writing us a feedback. We are pleased to see that one of our best tour managed to impress you. We have a feeling that Yoav weighted a lot in this too! And yes, Iceland in winter has it's own charm. We hope that after a full day around the scenic South Coast you gained a lot of nice memories and we are looking forward to have you back on board to explore even more of Iceland!

Our South Coast day trip experience was one I won’t ever forget. From waterfalls to volcanoes, we saw a wide variety of amazing sights.

BG was our host, and we were very lucky that on our tour there were only 8 of us so the whole day felt much more personal. BG, like all other Icelanders, was friendly, very knowledgeable and willing to answer questions.

The day is long, and starts early morning (we were picked up around 8am) - but it was more than worth it!

It was a great experience and tour with many highlights.

I had my prejudices about big group excursions by bus but I was very surprised how nice the participants and tourguides was

Our guide Ralph and Max were so incredibly nice. Ralph was highly knowledgeable and fun to listen too. I really enjoyed this tour with Max and Ralph. Thanks for the great time in Island.

Beegee was fantastic in showing us all the south coast highlights. He was incredibly nice and even watched a sleeping baby briefly while we explored the black beach. Tour was great and he was highly knowledgeable and fun to listen to. I would recommend the south coast over the golden circle any day of the week!

An incredible experience. My tour guide Sarah was amazing and very knowledgeable. She even went out her way to advise me to do the northern lights tour the following night as she said it was looking promising and it did not disappoint. I would highly recommend doing this trip to anyone visiting Iceland.

It was a long but interesting day! Many of the key highlights were included and there was a lot of information given about the tour en route. The only down side was that the glacier walk was described as easy and ten minutes. It wasnt. It was at least 20 mins walk on ice and deep snow which was very hard going, Had elderly people attempted this I think they would have given up. People were clearly slipping and struggling with this part of the tour. It was not as described!
