Even with the terrible rainy and foggy weather, we were still able to really enjoy this tour. Our tour guide, Dee Dee was not only informative but very entertaining as well. She sang some of the local historic songs for us and possesses a terrific voice. The highlights for us were the rift and the Geothermal Power Station... very interesting.
Highly recommend this as opposed to driving because while I found the roads were quite good, there were not many signs. It would be easy to get lost and people are so sparse and spread out that it would be tough to find help should you need it! The tourguide was great--a real local. So we got a taste of Icelandic humor and stories and the inside scoop. Would definitely recommend this tour. High yield. Efficient use of time. Great stops and explanations.
TOURING THE GOLDEN CIRCLEIf you only have time for one tour on your trip to Iceland make it a tour of The Golden Circle. Why this tour? You'll experience three forces of nature in one unforgettable day Gullfoss, geysers and geological rifts. The Golden Circle route in Southern Iceland, covers about 186 miles starting in Reykjavík, before panning into central Iceland and back again taking in en-route the rugged beauty and power of mother nature in all her Icelandic glory.
Great tour that took us to all the highlights around Reykjavik. Our guide was knowledgeable and personable. If you have just one day to spend in the area, this is the best way to see the countryside.
It was fantastic and we had a wonderful guide. Would recommend anytime. Thank you.
Great tour! Excellent guide. Would highly recommend this one for a first time visitor to Iceland. Scenery amazing!
what a great tour!!!
everything from the communication, booking, pickup, the scenery and especially the tour guide was fantastic
we would definitely recommend this tour
This tour was pleasantly satisfying. The guide was knowledgable and informative.
I have just recommended this tour to a couple traveling to Iceland this year.
Excellent trip, amazing tour guide . strongly recommended in general
Outstanding tour experience with a knowledgeable, professional, friendly tour guide. We highly recommend the Golden Circle Classic Day Trip for those on a limited visit to Iceland. You'll enjoy the most amazing natural elements of Iceland outside of Reykjavik in one day.
I put my comments for this trip under the Blue Lagoon by mistake. The Golden Circle Classic Day Trip was a great way in which to see some of Iceland. Tour guide was very informative bus driver was very good.
Blue Lagoon comments: It was nice but did nothing for our aches and pains. When first entering the water, the lava was hard on the feet. Everyone who visits Iceland needs to visit the Blue Lagoon one time
Excellent and knowledgeable guide with a great sense of humour and wisdom
Tour was professionally run and the sights were absolutely breathtaking.
Absolutely phenomenal tour. The tour guide, DeeDee, and our driver, Norbett sp? were amazing and kind. DeeDee taught us so much about Icelandic history and the sights that we saw, as well as was very funny and personable. Wish we would've spent more time in Thingvellir national park, but I understand that we had things to see in order to make it back at a reasonable time. Could've foregone the exhibition at the end on geothermal heating. I don't even believe it was the listed power plant. Otherwise, 10/10 and would highly recommend!
Great tour of the Golden Circle. We loved out guide, Jacob. He was funny and knowledgable. Would definitely use this tour company again.
Really good trip. Saw all the sights and appreciated been given free time at each site. The guide was great. Would recommend.
It was totally awesome despite the off and on rain. The tour guide Brandon was fabulous! Gave us a nice idea of what Iceland was all about. Would highly recommend this bus tour particularly if you only have a short stay.
Although the weather was truly lousy, this tour was fantastic.
This day trip was very interesting. Thank you for including all the sites and explanations en route.
We had a wonderful day trip! Our guide was funny and personable but not overbearing. You can't beat the sights! The day was planned out very well. I don't think there is much need to stop at the geothermal plant and would've loved more time at the other places instead. The coach bus was well equipped with USB charging in the seat but the wifi didn't work too well, which wasn't that big of a deal since we were stuck to the windows looking at the gorgeous landscape!
