Great tour with spectacular sights and experiences. The short stop by the geothermal plant was surprisingly exciting as it provided a chance to walk on and among moss covered lava, which is spongy and very soft to walk on, completely unexpected. Gulfoss and Geysir are the main events and did certainly not disappoint. We went on a day that was quite cold and very wet as it was raining the entire day, but still it did not dampen the mood or detract from the experience. The chance to walk between two major tectonic plates (where the American and the Eurasian plates meet) was also a once in a lifetime experience. Overall, the tour reminds you of the enormous power of nature and how Icelanders have settled in a balanced lifestyle accepting that these magnificent forces are beyond human control. Highly recommend the tour!
This was a wonderful day trip. We learned so much about Iceland and the thermal heating systems and really enjoyed our tour guide. And even though it was a large group,it was a wonderful day.
The trip was very good and we had a very good guide. Thanks for giving us this opportunity.

This tour is outstanding, Iceland has so many beautiful things to see.
awesome tour of the golden circle at half the price from shore, but you need to overnight to take this at it lasts 8 1/2 hours or more. great guide, lots of information and well worth it. on your own for food, so don't expect a feast.
we had a terrific trip, besides the tour it was also/mainly our guide linda. she was/is a "hell of a person", funny, informative, a great communicator.
As a first tome visitor to Iceland, I highly recommend this tour. It gives you a taste of everything from geysers and hot springs, to Iceland's viking history with a bit of the city thrown in for good measure. I particularly wanted to see where the country is spreading along the mid-atlantic ridge. Our tour guide was fantastic. She kept us informed and entertained between the various stops. Great tour
A great day out about with so many fabulous sights to see. Very knowledgeable guide, thank you we would love to visit again sometime.
Being an "urban jungle" type of girl, I was surprised that I even signed up for this tour. But it went by so fast and our guide was really good. Her voice was so soothing and put me to sleep during one part of the trip so I missed something about some elves or trolls....can't remember. Overall, had a great time!
Gullfoss was magnificent. The guide was wonderful. She had a beautiful singing voice and sang to us several times during the trip. When she took us to this old church, her beautiful Icelandic voice filled the church and was so moving and unexpected.
In spite of the cool, sometimes rainy weather, the Golden Circle Tour was excellent. Our guide's English was easy to understand. She was knowledgable, whitty and charming. We'd done this tour before but found the sites and stories continue to amaze us. The final stop at the hydroelectric plant, while still interesting, it was not as good as the previous plant four years ago.
Superb tour, Willy the guide was knowledgeable, funny and enthusiastic. Gullfoss and Geysir were the highlights, but the whole day was one to remember. Cannot rate it highly enough
