We had an incredible time. We were incredibly lucky with the weather, the beginning of the day was a little windy but the sun was out the entire day and by after lunch the wind had died down. We had enough time to enjoy every site and each was incredibly enjoyable. At the stop with the geysers, there is a place to get some lunch but we found it to be a little expensive and we were glad we brought some of our own snacks along. The blue lagoon is the last stop and we got there with just over two hours which was just enough time to enjoy much of the pools and surrounding areas. Lastly, our tour guide was great. I admit to not knowing his first name, but his nickname we're told is Thor of Iceland. He was so friendly and so funny, constantly teased us in a friendly manner and answered all of our questions. He took us to a small area where we were able to meet Icelandic horses as we had a small bit of extra time between stops. Would highly, highly recommend to anyone visiting Reykjavik.

This was the best trip we took by far! The volcano hike is not for the faint of heart, but I managed it despite never hiking before. (I’m in my early twenties though). Really enjoyed the sites and we even got see a few extra things with our guide. Going to the blue lagoon after was super fun, and saved us a ton of money. You get both excursions with this package, whereas the blue lagoon alone would cost more. You only get two hours at the lagoon, but I felt that was a good amount time. Highly recommend!

The hiking on volcanoes was phenomenal, we stopped also another 3 fantastic places before heading to the Blue Lagoon and spent 3 hours there. Definitely recommended!

We didn't know exactly what to expect but what an experience right from arrival it was extremely well organised. the staff were extremely helpful and courteous.

Flott tur med veldig kunnskapsrik guide, som med engasjert fortalde om dei naturfenomen vi fekk sjå. Oppholdet i blue lagoon far fantastisk.
