This is by far the best way to see The Golden Circle. Sergei was a fantastic guide, knowledgeable and great to spend the day with. I did not feel rushed as you do with so many other tours and he was continuously giving us history of the country and points of interest. We loved seeing all of the falls and scenery. One of our favorite points of the day was lunch at a tomato greenhouse. It was absolutely fantastic. Don't go to Iceland and miss this travel adventure!!!

Despite our ship arrived Reykjavik late and forced to start our tour at 5:30pm , our guide showed us around beautiful places with such enthusiasm. Took extra effort in showing us best vantage points. Never took short cut despite the late hours. We finished tour at midnight!

Had a terrific tour with Sergei! He paced the tour perfectly for our group and is a fountain of knowledge. This was our first exploration in Iceland and he was the BEST guide! We covered a lot of territory and enjoyed every bit of it.

This is definitely the best way to tour the Golden Circle and our most interesting day in Iceland. Our private guide, Dennis, was great. He showed us places that the tour buses don't go to, up close and personal, on our own timing. He also adjusted and took us to places that interested us specifically and kept our 18 year old highly entertained! Highlights in addition to Gullfoss, Geysers and east/west tetonic plate divide, were the amazing lunch at a tomato farm, visits to some off the path steam pools, the collapsed volcano crater and the lava fields.

This was a wonderful experience and we were so lucky to have Sergei take us around Iceland. We really only had one full day in and around Reykjavik, and he knew exactly where to go. He also knew the history of Iceland, and was completely fluent in English, which was an extra treat. He was kind and patient, and put up with three women regularly needing bathroom breaks! At several locations, the parking would be a 5 or 10 minute walk away. When we were freezing, he would very kindly go get his comfortable jeep, and come pick us up, at one point with yummy, hot chocolate! Terrific tour with a knowing, tour guide!

This tour was by far the best adventure we had in Iceland. Denis was amazing from pick up to drop off! He was full of energy and very knowledgeable about each stop and Iceland in general. He was so great answering all of our questions and providing background on each place. The Frioheimar Tomato Greenhouse was one of the best highlights of the trip and was a spot we definitely would of not found on our own. On our drive we even stopped to feed some of the local horses and learn more about day to day living in Iceland. I highly encourage spending a bit more and having your own guide with undivided attention-as an added bonus Denis was wonderful taking our photos and making sure we had a wonderful time!

Just returned from Iceland 2 days aga and what an amazing country - especially this tour! Four friends on holiday had a fantastic with guide Sergei. It began with Sergei arriving at our hotel on time, with a smile and made us cormfortable before journeying out to the sights. This is so much better than on a bus tour. Sergei kept us informed prior to each stop with the history and facts of the sights. We started with Thingvellir Nat'l. Park walking through the canyon formed between 2 tectonic plates, North American and Eurasian. Other sights included: Gullfoss waterfall, Strokkur geyser and hot springs, Faxa Falls, Kerid Crater, lunch at Frioheimar Tomato Greenhouse with delicious homemade breads and tomato soup - a basil plant is on the table with herb shears for adding to your soup, and the special stop along the roadside to photo, feed, and pet Icelandic horses. Sergei was thoughtful to bring both treats for the horses and hand cleander for us afterwards. A funfilled full day with a very informative accomodating guide. Maybe you, too, will be lucky to have Sergei.

We had a fantastic day with Sergei. He was very knowledgeable about the Golden Circle as well as Iceland in general, and we enjoyed visiting the wel-known sites as well as some hidden gems as well. Very highly recommended!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

Our guide Sergei was brilliant from start to finish. He chatted along all day and informed us of so much information to the area and the stop of points. Lunch was at the Frioheimar tomato greenhouse with fabulous buffet tomato soup and bread for 2300isk. He happily took photos for us whenever asked and made impromptu stops whenever something suggested it, like at a group of ponies on the roadside. We also stopped at the Laugarvatn Fontana geothermal baths and tried their very fresh Lava bread , the Faxa falls and a walk round the Kerid crater. Nothing was too much trouble for him and this seemed an expensive day tour but no regrets and definitely worth doing.
