We did the tour with Jojo, he was an excellent tour guide, he took us to all of the places. The weather was a bit foggy, but Jojo planned it well, so we could see the waterfall during the sunset which was amazing 🤩 We were mind blown by the south coast of Iceland, highly recommended tour. Our highlight of the tour was the plane wreck, it was something that you don’t see everyday!

Amazing experience!!
Elena_T, Mar 2023
Martin was really nice and he explained to us everything about Iceland... I'm giving 4stars because the seat were a bit uncomfortable due to the lack of legroom...we also had two wait 2h because the people who went to the Glacier started late

Jojo, our guide was lovely! Funny and wonderful blend of energy and very caring! DC3 plane wreckage was a highlight for me, being a aviation enthusiast! Recommended

Great guide and tour but rubbish bus
Carol_S, Feb 2023
Guide good and tour interesting. However the minibus was VERY mini. Everyone complained about the leg room. I am only 5ft 4ins and even I could not sit with my legs in front. I had to sit with legs sideways. My husband is 6 foot - he didn't have a chance. Very uncomfortable for a 10 hour tour.
Doomed excursion
Leatha_G, Feb 2023
This excursion was doomed from the start. Weather was ever changing from tolerable cold to winter storm. Bus was overcrowded & air conditioner was on instead of heater so freezing inside the bus (February) went to black sand beach and daughter & I got caught in a sneaker wave even though we were not close to the water (both knocked down and underwater by the freezing giant wave)soaked head to toe, bought a wool sweater, hat & gloves for my daughter at restaurant but no pants, socks or shoes available, air conditioner STILL ON, still freezing, 6 more hrs to go on the excursion. Dropped off ice cave hikers (the driver did take her socks & boots to dry in the front under the cold air conditioner) not much luck, then stopped by this road and put his coat and hat on my daughter and borrowed boots and pretty much bullied us to get off the bus in the winter storm (even though we both said no as we were wet & cold) we could see he was getting mad so we had to take a different rig which we had to PAY ADDITIONAL $4500 Krona each ($32.00) to drive us in somewhat proximity of the DC Plane wreckage. Nothing mentioned about additional fees to see the plane since it’s supposed to be part of the excursion so it felt like a private deal between him and the other driver) couldn’t see ANYTHING in the winter storm and would of had to hike 45 min into the winter storm to get a decent look and 45 min back but I was not going to let my daughter catch pneumonia to go on the hike. So stepped outside for 2 minutes to see if we could see it and take a pic. Afterwords back to the regular bus, returned the coat, hat & boots. AIR CONDITIONER still on, still freezing, was able to catch a pic of 1 waterfall in this whole trip before went to a little shop that sold sweatshirt & pants and socks that I got for my daughter who was still soaking wet. Then when he dropped us off back at the hotel, he went to back of the bus, grabbed our wet clothes and dropped them in the snow and left. I still have my hat missing (still in the back of the bus) I don’t blame him for the weather changing, or my daughter and I getting caught and pulled underwater from the sneaker wave. But what I do hold him accountable for was his lack of empathy that we were freezing and cold and he could of put the heater on during that time, for offering his coat & hat, boots to MAKE US transfer to the other bus during the storm when we clearly said NO several times because my daughters pants were still soaking wet and his response was “ What do you want me to do about it”. But he chose to keep the air conditioning on, chose to make us leave the bus and transfer to other bus to take us to the plane wreckage, for making us pay a total of $9000 kronas for his side job with the other driver to take us to see a plane that you could not see in the blizzard, for dropping our wet clothes in the snow instead of handing it to us. I would of happily given a 5 star if he would of have turned on the heater and let my daughter & I dried off. By the way the heater worked because he turned it on when driving everyone back to the hotels. Don’t travel to Iceland in Feb as it’s the darkest & coldest month in the year.
Rich travel experience

It was longest, most beautiful day! Driving from the capital to the south coast took about 1 hour and half but it had amazing views. Seeing the waterfalls and the plane wreck was definitely worth it.
Absolutely avoid
innocente19, Dec 2022
1. Pickup was supposed to be btn 8 and 830am, we weren't picked up until 845am. Imagine waiting for almost an hour in the frigid cold. 2. Driver/guide was rude and unpleasant. He insisted he didn't have me on the list. Why would I board a bus I did not belong on? 3. Tour was rushed and a waste of time and money. You couldn't understand the history that was being shared. Tour is combined with people doing a glacier hike so after the ride to the plabe crash site, we wasted over an hour waiting for the hike folk to return before we could move on. By the time we got to Seljalandsfoss Waterfall it was dark and there wasn't much we could see. We also were never taken to the 3rd Waterfall on the itinerary. Skip this tour and save yourself your money and the frustration.
Super nice guide!
