    The guide was awesome. The sites were stunning. We very much enjoyed all the stops. The farm was delicious and the horses were so interesting.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour (1 senior, 1 adult and 2 kids ages 8 and 11) and visiting all the amazing places on this tour. It was well-paced and we covered a lot in a day. David was our guide and his passion and enthusiasm towards Iceland made our day really awesome! His knowledge about the history and geology of Iceland is deep, he's a really well-read and well-informed person, and loves his work. In talking with him we found out that he has travelled internationally extensively. Highly recommend.

Our guide Mr Hauser was wonderful. He is extremely knowledgeable and entertaining at the same time. He took us to some his secret places like the farm that makes its own ice cream. We had a glorious sunny day which made visiting the beautiful and impressive sites even better. I highly recommend this tour company Get Your Guide and Mr. Hauser when you are next in Iceland. You will not regret it.

The guide was awesome. The sites were stunning. We very much enjoyed all the stops. The farm was delicious and the horses were so interesting. We had some detours on the road due to construction, but we were able to come back to the missed stop later so our time was extended but we didn’t miss anything.
