This tour was amazing from beginning to end! All of the guides were extremely knowledgable about Iceland and not to mention friendly. The tour of the geysers was especially exciting, as well. The pungent smell of sulfur certainly made it memorable ;)

This was a wonderful tour both on the horse at Laxnes Stable and the Geysir /Gulfoss tour. All of our guides were experienced and really fun. The horse ride was amazing and the horses were gentle and very easy to handle. I would absolutely take this tour again.

This tour was amazing, they came and picked me from the hostel. The horses were very friendly and really knew what theory were doing, they all kept in track and speeded only when there is a gap to catch up with the herd or when asked to. Everyone was so happy by the end of the ride. The people in the farm were very friendly too, I didn't have comfy shoes for riding so they gave me a pair for the ride, they also fitted all our helmets and helped up get on the horses. They also gave up cakes at the end. The Gold circle is a must, there was enough time for photos. The only negative point i'd mention, was that the tour didn't start at 9 as mentioned, it started at 12, so i called the number Viator recommended at 9am and they said the tour will start at 12. Maybe i should have called the day before to clarify.

Great combinations of the tour. The horse-riding activity was exciting. The icelandic horses were loyal and easy to control. It took us about an hour to wait for the coach but complimentary food and coffees were served, so it wasn't a problem at all.
The landscape of Gulfoss and Geysir was awesome.

The people at Laxnes (the stables) were the nicest people I have ever met! They went above and beyond to give us a good time. They even sent an extra rider to accompany our daughter, to lead her horse since she was a bit young to control the horse. Amazing time, simply amazing...the views, the beautiful and gentle horses, the people, etc! The bus trip afterward was good, but paled in comparison to the morning adventure. :)

This tour was the best one we have ever experienced. The Viking horse-riding will live in our memories forever. The Laxnes farm was wonderful and the home cooked lunch (1,000isk) was just what we needed after riding. These horses were the kindest, most patient horses we have ever ridden, and the scenery was breathtaking. The Gulfoss and Geysir tour afterwards did not disappoint. Our photos do not do justice to the Iceland scenery. I highly recommend this tour.

Even though it was pouring rain, I had a wonderful time! The trail was beautiful and the horses were so much fun. The farm had all the rain-proof coats and pants that we needed and it kept us warm and comfortable. After the ride we warmed up with some delicious soup and hot coffee. The tour bus part was a little rushed and I would have liked to explore some of the locations at a slower pace, but since I only had a few days in Iceland, this was a nice way to see it all.

Best, most comfortable and most well behaved horses we've ever been on. Also the horse farm was very pleasant to visit and the hospitality and warmth of the owners was incredible. Would definitely do it again.

We had a fantastic time and the folks at Laxnes Horse Farm were wonderful. The horses were very safe (I had a broken wrist and still managed to ride) but we also were able to trot and canter a bit on the trails. I might even suggest trying to squeeze two horse rides into your trip.

It was great! Very friendly staff. The trail was about 2 hours long, well worth your money. It rained on and off and they gave everyone water proof gear. A lot of celebrities have visited the place.

The Viking horse riding was so much fun. I recommend having lunch at the horse farm after the ride. The soup and breads were amazing.
Great guide on the Gulfoss and Geysir tour. I learned a lot about Iceland, both historically and geologically and saw 2 beautiful places..

Absolutely fantastic from the driver to the lunch. I am afraid of horses but these horses are very easy to ride and the scenery is spectacular. If you aren't a rider, wear thick jeans or your thighs will bruise. Exceptional and plan on going again

I give this trip five full stars plus! The horseback riding hosted by a small family farm provided the most fun of the day. My husband, a very beginning rider, said it was the best part of the whole day. I am an experienced rider and really enjoyed the small group, riding these wonderful small horses at their special 'tolt' gait, and the incredible staff at the Horse Farm. They provided a delicious soup, breads, strong coffee, and pastries as well as answered my many questions about the kind and very willing Icelandic horses. Seven thumbs up on this part. The trip by bus to the Gulfoss waterfalls and the 'Geisers' were great. The driver was very safe and the guide provided rich information about the history and the geographic of the countryside and the places we visited. This was a well-organized tour. We saw everything promised with good time at each place to enjoy what we came to view. We were back in the city on time having learned about and seen some of the natural beauty outside of Reykjavik. Thank you Viator!

Knowledgeable and patient, very attentive as to matching the skills of the rider to an appropriate horse. The ride itself is a wonderful trip out into the countryside and the dogs are absolutely delightful. I have never seen a happier dog than the one that trailed after our group of riders running merrily through the fields. The simple lunch offered after our ride ( consisting of soup and bread ) was the most delicious meal I ever had. A perfect excursion.

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!

We had a brilliant time on this excursion. I've never ridden before and survived smiling. The visit to Gulfoss and Geysir was breathtaking, especially in the winter conditions.

Definitely a tour worth doing and you do hit all the main spots as well. My only concern or rather wish is for smaller groups. Those big tour buses are not my favorite.
