A Recent Review of this tour

Bjorn picked us up at the airport at 8:30 on the morning we arrived in Iceland. We started with a quick tour through the former US military base and some background of the area. Then we headed to the amazing scenery of the Reykjanes Peninsula, including the Bridge between Continents and the amazing sea cliffs. He told us Icelandic stories along the way, including Gunnuhver's ghost. At the end of our tour he dropped us in Reykjavik and recommended several restaurants and activities near our hotel.
