tour guide was fantastic, covert informative and funny. Blue lagoon in the morning then back to the station, had lunch next door then the golden circle in the afternoon. Amazing tour, so much to see. Highly recommend Gray Line. We had a mix up with our drop off but they got us a seperate coach home.
Loved a relaxing afternoon at the Blue Lagoon.

The tour company that runs this trip - Grayline - is extremely well organized and punctual. They picked us up at our hotel and dropped us off there at the end. The Blue Lagoon is a must see when visiting Iceland. It was a rainy and windy day that we spent there and still enjoyed every minute.
This tour was really good. It gave a totally different experience in Iceland. Relaxing in Blue Lagoon without any time limits was awesome, especially after my muscles ache from the horse riding, which was lovely and picturesque by the way. I was a complete newbie at horse-riding, but I found myself staying on my horses. The guides are also distributed evenly to ensure that everyone is safe. I would recommend this trip to everyone.
Tour was amazing ! Long day but well worth it to get everything in you need to see, blue lagoon was most definitely the highlight
We visited the Blue Lagoon in late September. The weather was cold but the water in the lagoon was great. It is a big sprawling place so you didn't feel crowed. The free silica mask was nice. Very relaxing and we stayed for three hours. The Grayline bus picked us up in Reykjavik at the main bus terminal. You can take any bus back whenever you are ready. A must do thing.
You could spend a whole day here! Amazing sight to see. We spent the morning and afternoon at the blue lagoon then took the included transport right to the airport.

Very happy with all aspects of the trip. Great value with lots of Icelandic exposure. Blue Lagoon was streamline, modern and exceeded my expectations. Golden Circle Tour Guide was informative and humorous. Buses were clean and comfortable. Wish that Blue Lagoon came in the afternoon and Golden Circle 1/2 day tour in the morning but there's probably a good reason for the order selected.. Thank you.
WOW. Best tour ever. Blue lagoon so relaxing an unique. in fact everything was unique. the geyser, and the waterfall incredible. but most of all the best part was out tour guide Swan. he was incredible. very knowledgable. recommended to everyone. do not leave Iceland without doing the tour.
Excellent time at the Blue Lagoon. Better than expected!
Enjoyed the Blue Lagoon, but it is expensive so make the day of it.
Well organized by Grayline of Reykjavik. Only negative is that you are transferred to a bus terminal to transfer to 2nd bus to take you to the Blue Lagoon.
We came off Oceania cruise ship, and the bus came right to the ship to pick us up and returned us to the ship.
The Blue Lagoon is a must see, although it is very touristy.
The Blue Lagoon Is not The Best Place in Iceland but its ok to visit if you have time. The Place is crowded and expensive. There are many Geo Thermal pools in Iceland which can be enjoyed.
I would give this a 3 1/2.
It was a long day! I would have loved more time at Blue lagoon soaking under the bright sun!
The Island tour was informational, but we did not get to spend time with horses . There were stops to pick up other passengers en route which wasted time.
I loved the geysers and waterfall we saw and the landscape where the tectonic plates merge was amazing!
The Blue Lagoon itself was fantastic!
We were collected by a Grayline mini bus from our apartments, and taken to central depot to board a larger bus to the lagoon.
But on our return journey with Grayline we were dropped off just on the edge of Rekjavik, this meant we had to walk 15 minutes back to our apartments. Not what we expected to happen.
We had a lot of confusion with setting a pickup location. Nobody ever contacted me about this, so I reached out after being contact by my other 2 tours, saying we couldn't be picked up at our specified location. And good thing I did, because, of course, they said they couldn't pick up there! What would've happened if I didn't reach out?
Once we settled on a location, I realized they didn't give a time, either, so I reached back out. And when they emailed back a few days later with the time confirmation, the pickup location was totally different--and half an hour away! But it was now the day before the tour, no one responded to my email, and we had no cell phone call abilities--so I had to use wifi and ask a relative to call Gray Line to settle this. Talk about inconvenience and disorganization.
This is NOT a full-day tour it is two separate experiences. You get tickets for Blue Lagoon transport and have two times you can make it back by in time for the Golden Circle Afternoon portion. This means you have either 1 or 2 hours at the Blue Lagoon. But with the 2 hours, we did not feel rushed at all. And we absolutely loved the Blue Lagoon!!
The Golden Circle Afternoon portion? Eh. It was rainy and windy and kind of cold, so that was a big part of why it wasn't great. We still went to the sites, but it was hard to enjoy them when you're cold and wet and trying to keep yourself from blowing away.
But it was our guide who made it less pleasant. He meant well, but instead of focusing on the positive, all he seemed to talk about was all the beautiful, wonderful things we were missing out on.
On top of that, we were not allowed to eat or drink on the bus, but did not have enough time to grab food or coffee at any site because our guide cut them so short due to weather. So we're freezing and wet, but can't have hot coffee on the bus while we shiver. And all the bathrooms cost 2 euros to use throughout the day!
So, to sum it up, there are many good tour companies in Iceland. Gray Line is not one of them.
Our total experience with Viator on this tour was very frustrating, starting before we booked, when we sent questions about pick up locations and return times. The response did not answer the questions, just referred us to the website which also did not answer those questions - thats why we had asked them in the first place. Resending the questions finally got a response to the return times, but not the pick-up location. We then booked the tour. Our voucher stated, Directions: Tour departs from your centrally located Reykjavik hotel. Important Information: Your local contact is Gray Line Iceland. So we emailed Gray Line asking about the pick-up location, but got no response. Two weeks later, as we left on our cruise, we emailed Viator again, saying we had tried contacting Gray Line with no response, really needed to know where to meet our tour, and pleading for help in getting us this information. The response was simply that Gray Line did not pick up from the cruise port and that we needed to go to departure point listed on our voucher. We repeated that our voucher did not contain that location, which is what we were requesting help in ascertaining it, but it was quite obvious by that point that Viator had our money, and had no interest whatsoever in helping to ensure that we got on our excursion. Fortunately the afternoon before our trip over 3 weeks after emailing them, we finally received word from Gray Line that they would be picking us up at the cruise port, which Viator had consistently told us would not happen. So we did make our tour,and the Blue Lagoon was wonderful We definitely recommend going if at all possible - just find a different way to get there. But between this experience and a second with a Viator-booked tour on this same cruise see our review on Giant's Causeway Guided Day Tour from Belfast: IT-84912488, we will definitely NOT be using Viator again.
The trip was great. Good value for money. Not much more for the transport to and from than it would have been just to get in to the Blue Lagoon. The Blue Lagoon itself is a must see if you go to Iceland.
The tour started on time.
The bus was very comfortable.
We enjoyed the Blue Lagoon.
I loved the day. The morning at the Blue Lagoon was fabulous. The water and total experience were wonderful. they are very well organized there and being able to get a drink in the water was just so civilized. The afternoon tour was great. Gullfoss was incredible and the geysers were exciting - I recommend it all to everyone going to Iceland.
Highlight of our day in Reykjavik! The bus met us at the cruise ship dock,made a stop or two and then drove us across the volcanic landscape to Blue Lagoon Spa. We upgraded to get a towel, facial mask and drink. The facility was clean. The baths were a great way to spend a couple of hours in hot waters and brisk air.
Great tour, very off beaten path. Leaves lots of time at blue lagoon. Was nice to have entry included,
We really enjoyed The Blue Lagoon. We had heard it was a huge tourist attraction and we were afraid that it was going to be just crammed full of people. Luckily we did not feel that way at all. It was windy and rainy and we still enjoyed it. We were there on a Thursday at 2:00 p.m. Would definitely recommend it.
Blue lagoon is amazing but it's not a good idea of you to put this as first stop - only one hour to stay in the warm blue lagoon to leave and go to the other places. Blue lagoon should be the last stop. Overall is an amazing trip. Thanks Viator.
Highly recommended for your first day in Iceland as it really helped us get over jet lag. Very prompt pickup from our lodging and waiting for us when we were through soaking. The Blue Lagoon was very relaxing and something every visitor to Iceland should experience.
