5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

Despite the wind slicing blizzard, my partner and I had an amazing day. Staff were very friendly. A minibus picks you from your hotel and takes you to the tour company's main quarters where you check in and collect your tickets for you to get onto the coach. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. Our heads were overfilled with information about Reykjavik and Iceland. We made a couple stops throughout the tour to take pictures of great architecture but not as many as we hoped due to poor weather. The wind was very strong! The Blue Lagoon was a winter paradise. You had to pay for the type of luxury you wanted to experience. The most popular choice was the premium. With a cost of only 65euros, where you were given a dressing grobe, slippers, a towel, free face mask, fa couple of free drinks and a reservation at the top notch restaurant that weas adjacent to it. Highly recommended.

Good, quick trip to get to know Reykjavik and its suburbs. This is a fast trip and I wish we had more time in some of the stops but if you want to get a general overview of the city it is perfect.
