This was a fantastic way to spend the afternoon while visiting the island of Iceland. Not only to see the Gulfoss Waterfall, but the Geysir and Thingvellir National Park all in the same day, was an exhilarating experience. I would definitely book this trip if you have only a short time in Iceland. You see an awful lot in a relatively short period of time. Our guide, John, was humorous but not over the top funny and extremely knowledgeable.

What a wonderful day! The organization was perfect, our guide was funny and well prepared. We first had a very nice horse ride crossing small rivers and enjoying the landscape. Just one note on the ride, they could have divided the group in 2 smaller groups, one for beginners and one for advanced. While we waited for the bus at the farm, we ate a good soup and had a chat with the locals. The tour continued to Thingvellir, Gullfoss and Geysir, amazing places and nice weather. We could have had a longer break in Gullfoss. Highly recommended tour!

This was a nice and easy trip for evening. However, we took on August 20th which was the last night of the season it was being offerred. As such it was really too dark by the time we got to the Geysir (final stop). While we did get to see the geysir blow several times, it was disappointing that it was so dark and we didn't get any good pix. Thingvellir was great and Gullfoss was spectacular. If doing late summer, skip the evening trip and do during the day.

The Gulfoss and Geysir express worked well, because we saw Thingvellir as part of our snorkelling tour. If you book the horseback riding, know that it's quite a long trek. My friend thoroughly loved it, but as an inexperienced rider I would have been much happier with just an hour's ride.

Loved the Blue Lagoon - such a unique setting, and we loved swimming around in the hot water. Gulfoss is impressive. We saw Niagara a few years ago, and it's hard to top that! And the thermal area around Geysir is fascinating. Geysir itself only erupts once or twice a day, so we weren't lucky enough to see that, but Strokkur erupts every five minutes or so, and is impressive enough by itself. The trip also takes in the Thingvellir national park and lake, and shows you the join between the European and American tectonic plates - not something you see every day! The guide gave us lots of commentary on what we saw and the history of Iceland in general, and if his English wasn't totally fluent it was still a lot better than my Icelandic or any other European language.

A lot of driving to get to just two locations used in the show, though if youre sat at the front of the bus as we were you get a fantastic view of Thingvellir National Park as youre going to them. Our guide was excellent but he didnt have much to work with. I preferred the rift that was the location of the Bloody Gate to the village that was attacked by the Wildlings.
