The "total" experience was awesome!!!
This is really set out as two tours. The Reykjavik Sightseeing portion of the tour, in the morning, was really good, and was an excellent way to see the sites. Our guide was very friendly and very knowledgable. In the afternoon we went to the Blue Lagoon, which was very good. The tour company provided the flexibility of various return times. An excellent day and I would thoroughly recommend the tours.
The sightseeing was excellent, a lot of which was down to the guide. The tour is a little within the city but also surrounding areas. The Blue Lagoon is a must see. To be in a naturally hot lagoon, steam rising around you, while the air temperature is 2 C is amazing. Both tours well organised.
Fabulous day. The tour is worth a visit to Iceland
Well informed Guide. Enjoyed the Tour.
This trip was about 2.5 hours...just enough time to see things on a smaller scale. I hate all day excursions, so this fit into my personality.
This is one of the best city tours.

Doing what: Reykjavik Sightseeing including Gullfoss and Geysir Express Tour
A really good trip to help us get our bearings, make sure we didn't miss any of the main things there are to see. We could then wander on a different day and see other things in our own time. Gulfoss and the geysirs were magnificent. The guide was also very good.
It's worth it just for the Blue Lagoon, highlight of the trip and highly recommended.

Doing what: Reykjavik Sightseeing and Blue Lagoon Tour
Great tour, Blue Lagoon is a lot of fun. Not really what we expected, I guess we had low expectations of a tourist trap but it wasn't at all. Beautiful scenery, even in the winter temperatures. Made the warm water all that more appreciated. Definitely recommended if you're in Reykjavik.
Blue lagoon was absolutely breathtaking! Even in frigid temps!
The tour guide was brilliant, driving safe and considerate. Weather bright and dry, slightly colder than UK, but good for photos of which we have many. We would travel again when we return to Iceland which we hope to do in the very near future, although the country is VERY expensive.
Unfortunately our driver had to leave early to attend to a funeral and the relief driver did not appear to be to pleased with this as he was distant and not so flexible or understanding when we said we wanted to go to the shopping area.
It is a really well organized tour. We enjoyed it very much instead of the bad weather conditions.
The Perlan was the best.
It was still dark until 11am as it was December but I still enjoyed learning about different places including where the elves live which is taken into account in city planning-it is more like a friendly large town and the lagoon was good for my skin
