Wake Up Reykjavik Tour Review by Mark E

Incredible experience!

We had an amazing experience. The South Coast is a natural treasure chest of gushing waterfalls, shrinking glaciers, sleeping volcanoes and pounding ocean. Our guide was great, very knowledgeable and made us feel safe at all times. It was incredible to see and walk on the glacier and we’d recommend this trip to everyone. Unforgettable!

I had such a great experience. The sites were amazing and all a must see. The tour guide Julian was awesome. Great company to tour with. I also did their northern lights tour the night before and it was amazing.

Wake Up Reykjavik Tour Review by SusaDogue
Terrific Tour Company and Great Tour - Best We’ve Found in Iceland

We are spending two weeks in Iceland and have booked several tours. These guys stands out as the very best - small, clean, comfortable vans, small groups, and great guides. Julian was the best - engaging, perfect English, knowledgeable, and made the day very interesting and entertaining. We did the Glacier hike & Waterfalls with him on August 7th and wish we had booked other trips with this company and this guide. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
