  1. Chance of a lifetime!! Do not miss!!

    Cordelia was an amazing tour guide!! Very informative and so friendly!! She was very patient with our 16 y/o who was a little overwhelmed with the thought of this tour!! Lol
    All of us had a wonder time, it’s so amazing!! Highly recommend!!
    We are a family of 4 with 2 kids aged 12 and 16 and this was the most affordable option we found as well!

  2. The *free* pics and guides MAKE this tour!

    We booked this tour on the afternoon of our first day in Iceland for 9am the following morning. There were still a few spots open even with the late booking and the followup from Troll expeditions was pretty immediate! They gave great instructions in order to find the correct meetup location and how to dress. Upon arrival, they patiently suited up everyone (another reason we were so happy they offer smaller group sizes as this is not a quick process!) and then they split the 8 people into two groups of 4. My group’s guide was Cordelia. She is warm,easygoing, and funny! She was very thorough and enthusiastic as she explained what we could expect on the tour and sprinkled in some hilarious experiences of her own. This tour was breathtaking and a once in a lifetime kind of experience-this makes it all the more worth it that they include pictures for FREE! We had the pics back to us same day even (earlier than quoted on site!). At the end of the tour, we received hot cocoa and cookies and our group of 4 lingered because Cordelia had such great stories, recommendations, and information that she passed on. We are already looking into another Troll expedition while on our trip 🙂

  3. Cold Silfra water heated by warm care from our great tour guide. Love it!

    I went to Iceland in a group of 9 with friends from Hong Kong and stayed last 2 weeks. Then we joined the trip of Snorkeling in Silfra and met our excellent tour guide, Christina.
    Christina gave me a very good first impression during introduction. She was funny and detail-oriented at the same time as she could give us a detailed explanation of the trip with making jokes. She also took care of us very well.
    I had never tried snorkeling before and this was my first time to try it. I had not been swimming for quite a long period and found myself difficult to swim in a heavy suit. Whenever I think I need help and feel helpless as i cannot ask for help directly in water, Christina would come to help me at once without hesitation. She saved me several times in the whole trip. This was really impressive and I would like to think her once again here. I think this would be one of the most unforgettable experience in my life ever.
    Sincerely thanks, Christina:)
