We had a fantastic day yesterday (Thursday 21st April) on the South Coast Classic day tour. We had been on the Golden Circle and Northern Lights tours with your company the day before and whilst these were good today was made awesome by our very informative, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and approachable guide BG! He really made the day special and despite our original coach overheating we as the guests weren’t inconvenienced in any way as they had seamlessly organised a replacement coach to meet up with us at one of the stops. All in all a great day and I would heartily recommend both the South Coast tour, Reykjavík Sightseeing and our tour guide BG! Thanks

This day trip was absolutely amazing with seeing the black sand beaches and 2 waterfalls with an unexpected detour to a glacier which was much appreciated! Yoyo the tour guide was extremely friendly and had a plethora of folk stories and a vast knowledge of the areas we visited as well as advice for the best restaurants to go to as it was mine and my girlfriends 2nd anniversary. Vicek (V-Dog) the driver was also extremely friendly and got us to the locations without any trouble. To top things off, we unexpectedly saw the northern lights while driving back to Reykjavik which was absolutely breathtaking. Couldn’t recommend this trip enough!

We really enjoyed the south coast trip. It was approx 10 hours. We were given ample time to explore at each stop. There was a lot of driving (minibus) but there were regular toilet breaks and the stops were spaced out well. Paul was our driver and guide. He was friendly, entertaining and knowledgeable. He was also an amazingly skilled driver - the weather conditions suddenly changed but he dealt with this really well. Would definitely recommend the trip!

We had the most amazing day with Bo, our guide. He was very funny and knowledgeable and very organised. We saw some great waterfalls, glacier, volcanic beach and had plenty if time to ourselves.
Norbert the driver was great, very punctual.
The whole thing was great- pick ups on time and the office extremely helpful by email when I changed pick up location. (Thanks Matteo) !
We also did Northern lights and were very fortunate to see some, and the Golden Circle tour, again with Bo and had a great day.
Very clean coaches with WiFi on board and iPads for non English speakers which seemed to work well.

This tour operator exceeded all expectations. We did five excursions with Reykjavik Sightseeing and they provided both our airport transfers. Everything worked perfectly. The drivers were courteous and the guides personable and knowledgeable. As guests we quickly trusted the tour operators implicitly and felt able to totally enjoy the splendour of our surroundings without worrying that anything would go amiss or that the icy road conditions would be a worry. Tour prices were very reasonable and enough time was given for comfort breaks during the day. I would highly recommend.

We were standing outside waiting for the tour bus when a green bus drove thru the pickup/drop off lane at the hotel with out opening the door to see if anyone was here for the tour. Upon calling they gave us the run around and said they tried to call us, when I asked what # they used they changed their story. We are rescheduled for tomorrow. Since we bought as a package they would refund. Complete joke! Never again!

Wally, our tour guide, was very enjoyable and knowledgeable about this area of his beautiful country. It was obvious he cared deeply for his country and he was also very open and honest when answering ALL our questions. I couldn’t imagine a more enjoyable way to spend a day and we look forward to a return visit in the warmer months.

An incredible experience. My tour guide Sarah was amazing and very knowledgeable. She even went out her way to advise me to do the northern lights tour the following night as she said it was looking promising and it did not disappoint. I would highly recommend doing this trip to anyone visiting Iceland.

A combination of lack of WiFi on the tour bus and an ill informed and uninterested guide meant that we didn’t learn anything about Iceland on our day trip, which was highly disappointing. The glacier tour which was with a different company was thankfully wonderful and their guides excellent. A good guide makes all the difference and for this reason I would highly recommend against using Reykjavik Sightseeing if you have the misfortune to get the guide we had today.

I booked all our trips through Reykjavik Sightseeing. The booking team (Daria and team) were fantastic at rearranging my tours when the weather resulted in some cancellations. We managed to fit everything in that we had initially planned. This tour was my favourite day trip - big thanks to Bo our tour guide! Beautiful waterfalls. The northern lights by cruise was phenomenal too. Highly recommend. Thank you team!
