Traveler Tips


It seems expensive but this trip is the best value for money you will ever spend on a trip, do it, you will not be disappointed.
It's a very intense trip and requires a reasonable degree of fitness as there's a bit of walking involved especially at the Volcanic Crater and Waterfall.
Remember to bring swimsuit and a hairbrush for the Blue Lagoon.

Great tour of the Golden Circle
Sheila_P, Aug 2022
A great trip that covers Iceland's Golden Circle highlights close to Reykjavik. The 19 passenger van was the perfect size for a focused tour. All of the sights and activities were spectacular, and we were able to enjoy them even on a drizzly/rainy day. Gulli, our driver/guide, was great.

Fantastic Tour With Christina
Julie_G, Jul 2022
Fantastic tour! Christina was amazing. She went far beyond to make sure we all had a great day. Waterfalls were beautiful. She took us to a second waterfall that wasn’t on the description, brought us to pet the Icelandic horses, took us to a farm to get Icelandic ice cream, described the geology of everything we were seeing, and for those of us who wanted, showed us around the city of Reykjavik as well. The sites of the tour itself were fantastic too. My favorite was walking to the bottom of Kerid crater. Do not miss that. Many tours don’t go there. Christina showed us the lava flows from last years eruption (would have loved to see that) as well as many other places. She stopped for bathroom breaks and made lunch recommendations by the geysers. We even stopped to see how bread was made in the geothermal lake. National park, geysers, waterfalls, crater and Blue Lagoon were all amazing too! Do not miss this tour, if at all possible. Small group, minibus tour with Christina, through Viator, with Nice Tours, is an absolute must!
Great value for money
Saffron_C, Feb 2022
Our tour guide was lovely and very welcoming. He was very easy to talk to and it was nice to see how passionate he was about Iceland and it’s history. He was very informative and funny which made the tour really enjoyable. There were plenty of stops and opportunities to get food and drink. I recommend the restaurant at the Geysir; I had the tomato soup there which was amazing! The sights were astounding and Gullfoss waterfall was just incredible! If you’re doing this tour in the winter time you’ll certainly want to wrap up warm because the winds can make it very chilly. Unfortunately, due to the high wind speeds and snow, we couldn’t get up to the Blue Lagoon. However, our tour guide did everything in his power to try to get us there, but eventually we had to head back to Reykjavik due to a road closure up to the lagoon. Despite this he was very upbeat about the situation and I think this just goes to show that Viator and Nice Travel really prioritise the safety of their passengers. We did get refunded for the Blue Lagoon element of the tour. I had never used Viator before my trip to Iceland so I was worried about how trustworthy they are but I truly think Viator is brilliant. They’re extremely reliable, they answer any queries promptly and all the staff are lovely. I highly recommend this tour. Yes, it’s pricey, but considering the once-in-a-lifetime sights you’ll see, along with all the included travel, Blue Lagoon admission, and a knowledgable tour guide, it’s great value for money. I will certainly be using Viator again in the future!

Great day - Magnus was great
Lewis_P, Feb 2022
Professionally ran tour to the main tourist attractions near Reykjavik. Magnus was the perfect guide, providing interesting info and some laughs along the way without trying too hard like some other guides can do.

Amazing, must do trip!
Erin_C, Jan 2022
Our tour guide Christina was amazing!! We were collected directly from our hotel and brought to the National Park, Gullfoss Waterfall, Geysir Centre, Kerid Crater & the Blue Lagoon, and then dropped back to our hotel. She gave us many recommendations of what to do in Reykjavik, how to get the best northern lights experience and also she made extra stops on the way such as petting & feeding some Icelandic horses. She stopped many times for us to grab food or use the toilet. The overall experience was fantastic and definitely worth the money for a jam packed day of exploring!! Oh like definitely recommend.

AMAZING experience
Ella_S, Nov 2022
An amazing experience, we saw the golden waterfall, a geysir erupting, the crater and the blue lagoon was absalutely stunning. Tour guide was amazinf unfortunately forgot his name but he made extra stops along the way at farms and so we can take photos. If I could give 6 stars I would. SOLO TRAVEL FRIENDLY
Fantastic tour
Maria_F, Nov 2022
The whole trip was fantastic made even better by our guide, Elias. His colorful commentary was informative and lively. He even went out of his way to keep an eye on my 82 yo mother who didn’t join the longer walks. The golfoss waterfalls was breathtaking. Wished we could’ve stayed longer in Blue Lagoon. Definitely a place worth visiting again.
The Strokkur Geyser and...
Peter_F, Nov 2022
The Strokkur Geyser and Gullfoss falls were a real highlight. Took your breath away . Finishing at the Blue Lagoon was relaxing end to the day. A informative and humorous tour guide made it all the more enjoyable
Lifetime Experience.
lynrichashworth, Nov 2022
The five main visit locations were outstanding with a good balance of walking and sightseeing. The extra visits to the sheep and horse stables, the additional waterfall and seeing the glass houses were bonus stops. What away to finish the day...The Blue Lagoon didn't disappoint, made all the more special by being in the open air in the dark.
Great trip to see Iceland treasures
WilliamJ_B, Nov 2022
Golden Falls and geyser was cool. Most impressed by the lava landscape. Also side trip to see how bread is baked in hot springs soil.
Magical end to an exhilarating day!

Fabulous
Ac_J, Nov 2022
We had a fabulous day picked up from our hotel by the very friendly and informative Vlad the mini bus was really comfortable with Wi-Fi and charging points . The scenery was spectacular and we had lots of time at each drop Vlad even took us to a couple of extra drops the ice cream farm and to feed the horses . Vlad was really helpful as he knew we had a trip to see the northern lights at 2030 so had us back to our hotel for 2000 hrs we actually saw the lights that night which topped off a great day

Amazing trip - the waterfall is absolutely breathtaking. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and gave us a valuable insight into the geology and history of Iceland. Having a relaxing dip in the blue lagoon was the perfect end to the trip!

Outstanding trip viewing the Iconic Sights of Iceland
Alison_D, Oct 2022
This trip was amazing - it captured so many landmark Icelandic sights. I think Strokkur (geyser) and Gulfoss (waterfall) were my outstanding delights but we loved the whole day. Magnus Gunnarsson was an exceptional guide who included facts, jokes, Icelandic music and kept us to time all day. Would thoroughly recommend.
Excelent tour!
AnaIsabel_A, Oct 2022
It was a wonderful tour, with wonderful stops to see the perfect views and finish on the best spot the Blue Lagoon to start the evening more relaxed.
