Read all the guidebooks as you want. Then read all the online stuff you can find. You still will not be much closer to the nicest places in East Iceland.
For this you need local knowledge which is why Total Iceland is offering „Eastern Iceland like a local“ tour package. These are small-group fun tours. By fun we mean not getting a butt-ache from sitting in a bus all day, not getting dry and uninteresting lowly-paid guides, not getting what you paid for.
On the contrary, team Total Iceland is the only party in Iceland flexible enough to invite you to another tour or prolonging each tour if somehow the local weather, local road conditions or local anything does not cooperate. Which, incidentally, does happen.
