Great tour! Plan to get off the bus and go on an adventure (in other words make sure you dress for it). Our tour guide, Astor, was very knowledgeable and interesting. The bonus stop was a nice added bonus!
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour but would advise anyone taking it in the winter to make sure they have waterproof jackets and trousers as the weather was extreme. The locations we were taken to were amazing and we saw beautiful waterfalls and scenery. I travelled with my daughter who is a big Game of Thrones fan a she thought the locations were fantastic, especially the area between the tectonic plates. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and we would definitely recommend this tour.
Our tour guide was awesome!!! He was an extra on the show and was really into the show. It was great to hear all the stories!!! Thanks for all the memories!!!
this is a must tour for everyone visiting Reykjavik! doesnt matter you are a fan of GOT or not myself only watched 1st episode from season one, the locations covered under this package was BREATHTAKING!!! this was one of the highlights of our trip to Iceland!
Great tour to go on! A not so often explored side of Thingvellier park with fantastic views and actual filming locations seen in the show. Our guide was an extra from the show and he was very funny and great to your with. One of my fave day tours in Iceland so far!
What a great tour! Theo was our guide and had us in stitches the entire time. Being an extra for the show was an added bonus. His insight into both the scenery and filming was excellent. This tour will be loved by any fan of the show. However, even if you do not know about the show you will still love the tour. The scenery is breath taking. Can not recommend this tour enough!
Had an amazing time exploring all the locations. The tour guide was great, had a good sense of humor, and was very knowledgeable. Would recommend this trip for any traveler. The sights were absolutely stunning, and it did not feel overcrowded at all.
Did this Nov 2016. Our tour guide was awesome, especially since he dressed up as a Night's Watch he's a legit extra from GoT show and chopped my head off with his sword! Even if you don't watch the show, I imagine you'd be impressed by Iceland's natural beauty that was on display. Waterfalls, volcanic rock, homes made of earth and soil, up close interaction with their distinct horses and more! If you're not put off by somewhat crude humor, you should love the tour guide - if you're a bit of a prude go on the other tour bus maybe lol. Even as the sun was setting, our tour guide popped by another waterfall that wasn't scheduled. You don't feel rushed at the sites, but at the end of the day - you do feel like you saw a lot! I went in winter so if you do that, make sure you wear shoes that won't slip so you can climb some things if you want optional to get a better view. Thank you so much Greyline and the Sword Biter! Now my watch has ended. Get your geek on and book this. p.s. don't expect to see the geyser and a gulfoss - book the specific Golden Circle tour for that for another day. Fun Game of Thrones tour!
We loved this tour. The sites and the landscape were breathtaking, whether you are familiar with GoT or not. We loved seeing the locations for some of the show's scenes in season 4, although they were different ones than what was described in the tour literature. Our guides were great and loved that they had still images from the show to jog our memory. Excellent tour.
This was easily the highlight of my entire week in Iceland. Worth every single penny/Króna. Even if you don't watch the show, this is 100 worth doing.
Some context: It's a mostly all-day trip if you go in the winter time. Get on the bus at 10am, finish the tour at 5 or 6pm, get stuck in windy/snowy conditions, back at the hotel at 9 or 10pm. Honestly, though, it's still worth the trip but keep that in mind and bring extra water and snacks to avoid spending too much at rest stops, and also bring a warm wind-proof coat. You'll stop at 3 locations, maybe a 4th with a cool view unrelated to the show if the group is making good time. Definitely try to go on a clear and rain-less day so you can actually see the sights.
Our experience was a great one, and 90 of that was from the host / tour guide. We happened to get one who: 1 is an extra on the show, for reals 2 Does viking battle re-enactments and makes his own viking clothing which he wears on the tour 3 Is super funny and has literally an entire day's worth of entertaining stories to tell, which is what will be the highlight. Seriously, that tour guide deserves a promotion and a 6-figure salary.
One of the sights you stop at, if you have the tour guide we did, will pose with you in his cool outfit and pretend to stab you with his sword in a photo. Very cool and fun.
Bottom line, you should do this tour if: You want to see the beautiful countryside of Iceland but don't want to bother driving to the sights yourself, love Game of Thrones even if you don't you'll still have fun, and enjoy hearing many interesting stories. 1000 worth your time and money. Do it!
