Hi, I was impressed with a richness of your tour, so many places to be seen and you also took into account dinners and grocery purchases, very thoughtful! Unfortunately, I cannot give an expert advise, am novice myself, sending my folks (husband and 22 y.old son, big guys both of them, right?)  to Iceland in the mid of August for a week, the same length like yours. I wonder, where did you get your  tour from? (I assume it is a self-driving one?) I was thinking to get daily tours for them from Reykjavik but your tour seems to be so exciting that I am kind of leaning toward something like yours.
Thank you.

Hi Yevgenia,
You are right, it will be a self-driving tour based on our research. We will consider organised tours for whales and puffins watching only.
