Our guide was great. He met us at Keflavik Airport at 4:50 AM in his 17 passenger mini-bus, showed us a lavafield on our way to the Blue Lagoon, and took us to a very nice breakfast at a small café in Grindavik, before taking us to our hotel in Reykjavik which had a great fish and chip on the menu.
Iceland was a great trip and our guide was a great guide for it. We were a family of 5, ages 16 to 85, and Our guide was able to accommodate all of us. My wife and mom were not up for the more challenging hikes, so he got them to lunch and a museum. My son wanted to get the morning light for his camera, so he was in the lobby on two mornings at 3 AM. My other son forgot his toiletries bag in one of the 8 hotels we stayed in, so our guide coordinated with his niece to have the bag delivered to us before we got on the plane. Lastly, I have an interest in the sagas, Njal's Saga in particular, so our guide got me to the site of the Njal burning (which was not easy), the saga museum, and various landmarks along the way. Also, waterfalls, a hike on the glacier, a hike in the glacier, in a cave, Thingvellir, Thorsmork, Geysir, Guilfoss, Reynisfjara, Jokulsarlon, and more. Stops at Bonus, souvenirs, the new Iceland Costco? No problem!
It was also a great help to have him as a driver. If you want to see the scenery, you're going to have to drive out, in a country on the metric system, where you might not see another car for an hour. Our drivers knew which one lane road or dirt road was the right road, and that is tricky if you're not a native.
Gorgeous, gorgeous scenery. Being in a different part of the country every day. Immersing yourself in a different culture and way of life. Being in a country of 340,000! Also, everyone spoke English.
I'd probably spend another day in Reykavik, but there will be other opportunities for that. We spent one day in Reykavik and 7 days out side of it. If you want to take in the scenery, you have to go outside of Reykavik.
