Small group tour was perfect!
Lori_K, Mar 2023
The small ground tour around Southern Iceland including our 4 people and one other couple. I was like a private tour. Chris, our guide, was wonderful! He took very good care of us and stopped for bathroom stops, food. He asked if we wanted to see another waterfall and it turned out to be the most beautiful one we saw on our trip. He had many stories to tell on the ride too. We would recommend this tour.

Great South Coast Day Trip
Chad_R, Feb 2023
From start to finish this day trip was exceptional. My wife and I travel alot and this day trip was full of great activities. Our driver was great and full of knowledge. He allowed us to call the shots on the trip as it how long we wanted at each activity, when we wanted to stop for breaks and extra time at lunch. I would highly recommend this travel co and this day trip.
Our best tour in Iceland
John_B, Feb 2023
We enjoyed it all. Waterfalls, black sand beach, glacier. Great intersesting guide Anton who did not rush anyone on the tour. He was a lot of fun.
A fabulous day - whatever the weather!
Matthew_J, Feb 2023
If you find yourself reading reviews trying to find the best your company to book your Iceland trips with look no further! The weather can be very unpredictable in Iceland causing plans to change suddenly. We had booked the South Coast tour and Golden Circle tour via Back to Iceland tour company. Thankfully Back to Iceland were very accommodating and changed our tours around to different days so that we were still able to do both. We had tour guide Antanas for both trips. A great guide - funny, informative, flexible with time if able. There was the odd snowy blizzard (with very poor visibility on the roads!) during our trips and we always felt safe thanks to Antanas’ experienced driving. He was also prepared with crampons and ponchos should they be required. The tour itself is quite long approx 9 hours but we enjoyed every minute! Thank you 😊
Informative Tour
Natalie_B, Feb 2023
The tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. I learnt the most on this tour compared to others I had in Iceland during my stay.
Amazing experience - breathtaking places
Ariela_D, Jan 2023
Anton was a great guide. He gave us a lot of information about the places that we were visiting and Iceland in general. We were the only people in the group and he gave us a private tour without extra charge The places that we visited are breathtaking and probably the best things to see in Iceland
Excellent trip at Winter south coast day tour with Anton
flc754, Jan 2023
Excellent experience with Anton who was very nice and knowledgeable. He brought crampons for us to use and be safe. He was funny. It was a small group and that gave us more time to ask questions and explore the different places he was showing us ( so many and so hard to pronounce that I couldn’t remember the names but awesome places). Highly recommended.
So helpful to have...
Erika_M, Jan 2023
So helpful to have crampons provided for us. Our guide was prompt, helpful, and friendly. It was really nice being with a smaller group too. The waterfalls, black sand beach and glacier walk were great!
My best activity in Iceland
Jnis_G, Jan 2023
Even though the tour was limited due to closure of roads, it was the best experience during our one week visit to Iceland. Guide Anton was incredible.
Appreciate it very much!!!
Manolet_S, Dec 2022
Thank you Anton. Tour is excellent and always safety first! Iceland on a winter can have weather that changes dramatically. Our tour guide driver made sure that we get there and back safe. In the end we had a wonderful experience! Must do this trip with this company when in Reykjavik. Yes, Anton we were infected with your warm hospitality and kind personality. Thank you!
Incredible tour of Iceland
Nicholas_A, Dec 2022
What an incredible tour! Anton was an exceptional tour guide - providing such interesting information in a way that was easy to listen to and including many laughs! The car was very comfortable and of course the sights were out of this world - from waterfalls to the glacier , we enjoyed every minute. Thank you very much for this wonderful experience!
Awesome day trip

South Coast Tour
Deb_K, Dec 2022
Since we were the only ones signed up for the tour on a Monday morning, we had a private tour with Anton. He was very informative, full of facts and stories. We saw several different waterfalls, the black sand beach, and a glacier, as well as several small towns. It was a long, enjoyable day! We'd recommend Anton--he was a great tour guide.
Highly Recommend
Alexander_R, Dec 2022
Very good tour. Sounds a long tour but time flew with all the amazing sites. Tour guide was very knowledgable, kind, flexible, and gave lots of tips. The bus was immaculate with USB ports to charge your phone and Wifi. We had a small group who all spoke English and fantastic weather which was helpful. This was our favourite tour of the trip.
We had a great time...
We had a great time visiting Iceland ! Anton was very friendly and told us a lot of stories about the culture of Iceland! We had an absolutely great time!
We loved this tour!
Clare_A, Mar 2022
We loved this tour. our guide Anton was brilliant, he really went out of his way to personalise it and look after us. The minibus was really clean and comfortable. The stops got more amazing as the day went on with the waterfalls getting bigger each time. The Black sand beach and the glacier were also amazing too. A great day!
Great experience!
Nicole_F, Mar 2022
Amazing tour and tourguide! Anton knew everything about Iceland and gave us amazing stories and information. He took us to amazing places and was fully prepared for any weather condition (brought ponchos and crampons for our safety and comfort). All around amazing, I want to come again and use his services for all tours!
