Всё очень понравилось. Удобный микроавтобус, мало людей, всё по расписанию, довезли бесплатно до дома. Экскурсовод Jon (возможно, имя следует писать не так?) отлично рассказывал и давал достаточно времени на изучение всех мест. Спасибо ему и большой привет из России:) Водитель тоже отличный, хорошо и спокойно водит. Экскурсия на полуостров Snaefellsnes - очень удачная (и маршрут, и время).

Guides were really good, informative, funny, well organized and responsible. The tours I took were really beautiful and detailed enough. There were enough breaks and stops.

Snaefellsness Island Tagestour - tolle Naturerlebnisse


Vom ersten Kontakt bis zum Ende der gebuchten Tour klappte alles perfekt. Mein letzter Tag in Island war durch den Ausflug nach Snaefellsness ein schöner Abschluss einer tollen Reise.
