We had a great day out. The smaller group tours are better we think, more personal and our guide Odin (apparently not named after the god of war) was Brilliant . Very knowledgeable, helpful and good fun. Well worth doing and we recommend to everyone.

Learned a lot about Iceland while seeing a lot of the countryside. The guide was excellent and kept us entertained the entire day. The time at each of the stops was just right to take a few pictures before moving on. Very informative day out.
