Great trip all the way around- The tour guide was excellent knowledgeable, friendly, and eager to please. The sights were well planned for comfort and excitement, even on a cold and rainy day. Snowmobiling on a glacier was definitely a bucket list MUST! Iceland is expensive, but well worth it.
My only suggestion is to update your booking site so that my situation could be avoided. I booked on a Sunday for a Tuesday excursion. I never received a confirmation. Emails are answered within 24-48 hours and there was no telephone number to call. I finally reached an operator at 8:00am on Tuesday morning who told me that I was not confirmed but she would attempt to help me out- There was a cancellation and we were grateful to have been able to participate. Thanks for an exciting adventure!
This is a must do! Stop looking around and choose this one for the golden circle expeiance. The snowmobiling on the glacier was amazing. Thor our giude and driver was great. Best tour of the week in Iceland. The monster truck was fine and more comfortable then the buses we took.

This was our favorite tour of all the excursions we did! It was so much fun and our tour guide, Oscar, was amazing! So funny and led us to some really cool spots throughout the day. Definitely a must and worth the cost!

Very short time at the sights, not enough to enjoy, a big rush.
Helpful guide, great car, professional snowmobile.
A great tour that includes all of the best Golden Circle sights but with added adventure and fun from the snowmobiling. You do need a good level of fitness as the jeep drive is incredibly bumpy and snowmobiling is much harder than it looks! We had a lot of fun!!
Absolute highlight of the holiday for me, well organised and great fun too. Make sure to dress warm though
Excellent. We have been to Iceland 4 times before and visited all the places on this tour many times so maybe we weren't so amazed at some of the sights as the other people on our tour. But the snowmobiling was amazing. Lucky we did the tour in reverse though as wouldn't have been so good arrving later at the snowmobiling equipment hut. Only thing is it was really pointless going in the super jeep as there wasn't enough off roading to make it exciting. We picked up many leaflets of other companies who did off roading combined with the snowmobiling so we would do that if we came again.
We had a fantastic day out, the tour guide was excellent and friendly and very informative and no communication problems. The tour itself was just as good beautiful sights and scenery. The snowmobiling was excellent if not a little scary. Would recommend this trip and country to anyone.
We did this on 11/11/12 which was my birthday and had an amazing day! The snowmobiling had to be my favourite. I recommend this tour 110%. Enjoy!
It was great...guide was informative and funny!! Loved all of it....a must for anyone..enjoy
More driving than I thought but I really enjoyed this. The snowmobiling was hilarious and even in the summer when the glacier is slippery and melting, it was still spectacular.

This tour was the absolute highlight of our trip! The guide was excellent, and we spent plenty of time in each place, before heading on to the snowmobiling. I highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see all the best bits of Iceland in a full day trip, and a bit of adventure!
Outstanding day (9am-6pm) packed with very interesting sights and the snowmobiling was extra special due to our guides special passion for the glaciers. Well worth the cost.
One of the best tours I've taken. If you have one day in Iceland, this is the tour to take. Not only do you see all the incredible sites but you learn so much (perfect for those Geology geeks out there!) about the science behind what you are viewing but also you learn a lot about the culture/people. You also will not have any more fun than riding a snowmobile on a glacier!!
This trip seems expensive but was definitely worth the money. Without the super jeep and snowmobiling I think the Golden Circle tour would've been a little boring, I would recommend going for this one rather than the standard coach trip. Gulfoss waterfall, the Geysers, and Þingvellir were really beautiful places to see, a shame it was raining but that was to be expected in October. The jeep then took us to Langjökull glacier, there wasn't any snow on the ground and it initially didn't look that nice as it is covered in volcanic ash, however once you get going on the snowmobile they take you further onto the glacier and all you can see is ice around you, and it started snowing. Our tour guide was very informative and friendly, he seemed to know a lot about each of the areas we visited. Overall I would say this tour is worth doing, probably the best thing I did during my visit to Iceland.
Out tour guide/driver was outstanding! He was funny, entertaining and full of information. The snow mobile ride was a blast and the rest of the sites we visited were beautiful. Thanks for a great time! Highly recommend this tour.
This was an excellent day out with a guide who cared that you had a good time. Full on fun packed day. Be ready to rock when you go off road they like to get in the spirit of the event by playing heavy metal music. Good fun dont go with anybody else book with these guys. Biggest company in Iceland and booking with Viator was cheaper than direct. The snowmobiling was brilliant. Dont worry about your clothes all is provided for you.

This tour really made our weekend away. The waterfall took my breath away, the geysers were amazing and the snowmobiling was the icing on the cake! Our guide was so informative and made the trip even more special. We'll be back to try a few other tours with you!
