Absolutely AMAZING, tour guide was BRILLIANT
This trip was a fantastic day out, from start to finish! We only booked this about 2 days before the travel date, due to life generally getting in the way, and so didn't have an enormous amount of time to research different companies, etc. Thank god we didn't, as we will never travel around Iceland with another company again! Antanas was absolutely phenomenal!

We were picked up shortly after 8am, by him in his lovely comfortable car (a luxury SUV), despite thinking that we would be on a minibus tour with other people, it was just my husband and I. We were a bit hesitant at first, as it really wasn't what we expected to happen, but we soon got into the swing of it!

Antanas was SO MUCH FUN! He was considerate, engaging, funny, helpful, knowledgeable, and so, so lovely to be around. We honestly felt like we were out with a friend for the day. He kept us entertained on the drive by sharing information on Iceland, everything from information on the Icelandic horses (don't call them ponies!) to the landscape, and how it was formed, etc.

Antanas really went out of his way to make sure we saw the best sites, and he made sure we had ample rest stops and food breaks.

Antanas took us to so many amazing places, including several waterfalls, the black sand beach, and a glacier...the sights just kept getting better and better!

I would honestly say it was the best trip I've ever been on. We learnt so much, and had the best time! Antanas mentioned on the way back that it was his wife's birthday that day, and was so gracious about us having gotten him back to his family later than planned, due to my husband wanting to stop off to see a Viking "B&B" (an ancient hut built into the side of a mountain/cliff).

If you only do one tour in Iceland, I would 100%, wholeheartedly recommend Back To Iceland Travel, as you will not be disappointed! We are already planning another trip back, and will absolutely be contacting Antanas for another trip!

Comfortable and intimate
Oct 2021 • Couples
We did this tour with Anton on 10/25/21. This was by far the best experience for traveling in Iceland especially since the bus was not overly crowded and very comfortable. The group was small and intimate, and of course, all the stops were majestic. We ended up using a different service, bustravel for two other trips (due to being unfamiliar with the different companies) and regret not doing further tours with back to Iceland as the other company was over packed and uncomfortable. Highly recommend back to Iceland.

Great day
Mar 2020
We had a brilliant day out seeing the sights of the south coast with Kris as our driver/guide. The minibus was new and comfortable, kitted out with power sockets and usb charging points for phones as well as good, strong wifi connectivity. Kris's commentary was very informative and his delivery of local folklore stories and facts about each location was perfect. He took great care of his customers, accompanying us at each of the stops to explain more about each place and to make sure we stayed safe.

Sadly we visited just as Covid-19 was starting to bite but it was reassuring to have a bottle of hand sanitizer available at the front of the bus for using whenever we wished. Europe was going into lockdown as we flew home,here's hoping that Back to Iceland can survive the lack of tourists and still be in business for when the world gets back to normal.

Great trip, I'd definitely recommend it and would use Back To Iceland again if I'm lucky enough to be able to return.

The best day!
We were picked up on time from our hotel, with only 1 other couple on the tour.

The guide was knowledgeable, funny and gave us as much time as we needed at each location.

The WiFi and charging points were very useful. We were super lucky with the weather to see the waterfalls and glacier, however when we got to the black sand beach there was a hail storm and the beach turned white! Still spectacular!

Thank you for a wonderful day 😁

And as if our day couldn’t get any better, my now fiancé proposed under the Skogafoss waterfall 😁

Must see

We were incredibly lucky with the weather and got the chance to enjoy some stunning views. The tour felt a bit rushed but not too much and it's definitely just because there is a lot to see on the way.

Amazing scenery with an eclectic host.
Feb 2020 • Couples
This tour was breathtakingly beautiful and probably the best scenery in iceland. The tour operator was humorous and had some very random facts and interesting opinions. There was a running commentary throughout the drive ranging from agriculture, politics, nature, economics, commerce and pondering the future of iceland.
The beach was fantastic if a little dangerous...
The waterfalls were a spectacle and phenomenal!
The tour was quite quick with a prompt arrival and departure from each place.
All in all this was an excellent hilarious tour and really enjoyable if you don't take life too seriously and want a bit of true icelandic flare.

Excellent day trip!
Feb 2020
We had a stress free and enjoyable day! Our driver was Anton and he had loads of knowledge and a great sense of humour. There were warm jumpers and crampons provided and he ensured that everyone was comfortable. The sights were beautiful and breathtaking, a must see for anyone! Do wrap up warm if you go in winter and wear suitable footwear, some places are bit slippery. We had lunch at the Black beach and would recommend the Lamb soup - you even get a second helping free of charge.

Excellent day trip with our guide Antanas. He was enthusiastic and took good care of us. They even provide crampons and warm jumpers, if needed. We definately would use this company again.
