Hey Vignette, We're very sorry to read this review. We will definitely try to find who was your guide that day and ask why they were driving so aggressively! We apologize for your ruined experience and If you do come back to Iceland, I hope you'll give us the chance to make it up to you as small groups are definitely much better! :) Kind Regards, The Gateway Team.
