So much to see and so beautiful
Susan_B

There was so much to see. The trip is simply amazing. Each site was breath taking. Our guide, Mr. Howser, was not only very knowledgeable about the sites, but told us stories from the Icelandic sagas about each one really bringing it to life. I'm traveling with my 16 year old son and he was engaged the whole trip. The lunch stop was delicious food. Definitely worth the time.

If you are dependable on nature views - you should take this opportunity and try this tour. Such amazing views, nice waterfall (we saw at least five) and a famous mountain. Nice driver kept informing us about surrounding. Iceland you are the best!

Excellent trip and guide was fantastic!

What made this trip so good with the guide (I think he said his name was 'Omar' but I'm not sure about that). I really felt like he went out of his way to make the day really special for the tour group. He picked some berries for us, helped us drink fresh water from a waterfall and we went on a side excursion and found a place where seals come close to land (and we saw them!). He was great, the day was excellent, thank you!

I don't remember the name...

I don't remember the name of our guide, but he called himself Iceman, he is really nice, a good storyteller (I loved his stories!) as the day was sunny and we had time he took us to an extra fall. Maybe I would have liked to really learn the names of the places.

Our tour guide HBO was really fantastic and very knowledgeable. The tour was a long day but packed with beautiful sights and Nature's wonders! Very well organised and would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Iceland! I can't say I have a favourite bit because it was all glorious but my partner says their favourite was standing under the waterfall by the Lava Fields! Thank you HBO and Bus Travel Iceland!

Best day in Iceland

We had planned to take two days to see the Snaefellsnes Peninsula on our own with a rental car. When bad weather caused us to cancel, we booked this bus trip for what would have been our second. Not only did it hit all the sites we’d to see, plus a few more, the pace was perfect! Our guide was able to suggest an outstanding fish restaurant and call ahead so that lunch was efficient and leisurely. Best of all, our true Viking guide, Howser, regaled us with stories from Islandic history, myths, and info about contemporary movies and tv shows filmed in Iceland. Most of it was true, and all of it was entertaining. This was our favorite day in a week inIceland.
