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!
Loved this tour. I had originally thought it would be the same as a Golden Circle tour but it wasn't. The landscape is amazing and it was nice to go to places where there weren't a bunch of other buses. Went with a non Thrones watcher and she enjoyed it as well.
Guide was great unfortunately I don't remember his name
Only complaint was that the group was quite largewe were told that the group we were on was especially large but everyone was great getting back to bus when they were supposed to.
This tour was fantastic. The locations were beautiful and the tour guide was both friendly and very witty! They were very considerate of all passengers, ensuring every one was accounted for and able to do any hiking elements before relocating the coach. I would highly recommend this tour, even if you do not watch the programme because the stops are incredibly beautiful and worth seeing on their own! Without a doubt, this is the tour to go on!
Our driver, Petra, went out of her way to take pictures of my husband and I so that we had some pictures together. Our guide, Swan, was and extra in a GOT episode and he had lots of fun facts about the different locations and places along the way. A must do tour for any GOT fan.
Ok, this tour was awesome. Sure it's a lot of driving. So is any day trip where you have to see multiple locations. The guide was fun, the stops were unique, and if you have any enjoyment of this show then you will not regret coming on this tour! A couple of added bonuses thrown in too.
This was a great trip! Our guide and driver were great and we saw a lot of cool things. Our guide, Swan, was very informative and interesting - some of us had never watched the Game of Thrones but the tour was interesting enough that it didn't matter! Swan told us a lot about Iceland, the country, its culture and folk tales. It was nice to sit back and enjoy the tour and not have to worry about navigating, too. Highly recommend this tour.
