Darin and the driver (I am sorry but I do not remember his name) were excellent. We were a little late as the result of our driver being given the wrong location by our hotel. We called and explained the situation. We were about 15 minutes late. They waited for us, which they did not have to do. We very much appreciated their kindness! They provided great information about the country and very clear directions about the tour. They were very kind and considerate to all! Excellent tour guides! I highly recommend the company and them!

We had a fantastic day. The weather was against us on our drive out of Reykjavik. Our driver was cautious and we felt safe being passengers. The tour guide was excellent, she had so much information to share, which we enjoyed. It is true, some of the tour is a little rushed but necessary. We enjoyed the golden circle tour so much, everything is just breathtaking. Our mountain coach ride to base camp was incredible and the view’s were astonishing. Sadly, the visibility once at the snow mobiles was poor, but we still enjoyed it. This is not for adrenaline junkies as it caters for all. We still enjoyed the experience very much. We took snacks and there is enough time to purchase food and eat at lunchtime, we ate on the coach. It is stipulated no smelly food to be eaten. Overall this day was fantastic, the Geysers and the waterfalls being something that you must see and won’t forget.

Really enjoyable trip although it was dark when we arrived at the National Park. The Snow mobile part on the glacier was amazing. Only downside was that the instructions tell you to bring headphones. We didn’t bring any with us and went out of our way to buy some in Reykjavik beforehand. Waste of money as they were not needed.
