A very good day but very rushed would recommend a full day at the lagoon we barely dipped our toes in the water and had to get out in time for us to continue the tour
This tour was great.
Loved being at blue lagoon in the morning before it got busy however would have been nice to end with the lagoon after a busy day.
Bus was comfortable, no toilet but stopped often enough that it was alright.
Overall great day!
The Gulfoss Waterfall and Blue Lagoon are the two best things to see in Iceland. It's more challenging in the Winter because the sun sets so early, but it was still amazing to see both. You dont need a full day at either, so doing this combination tour is the best plan.
If you're pushed for time this is a great tour to see the biggest attractions in one day. Ideally I would've spent more time at the blue lagoon, but I was still there for a good couple of hours and it's absolutely wonderful. I was so relaxed - it was just what I needed. The tour guide Darren on the Golden Circle part of the tour is a great guy. He knows his stuff and keeps you going on the long drives between sights. The national park is stunning, the waterfall is just amazing and the geysers were also impressive. I'm really glad I booked through Viator - I didn't have to confirm my bookings and they showed up right on time.
This was a great way to spend the day. The blue lagoon was an amazing experience and highly recommended. No one should miss it! The geysers and the waterfall in the golden circle tour are can't miss.
Get ready for the blue lagoon to blow your mind because it's mesmerizing and SO RELAXING. It was our second time there during our trip and we were ready to go back for a third because it's the best way to start your day off. Nothing compares to it. Make sure to upgrade so you get a towel, complimentary drink, and an algea mask. It's only 1500 kronas so it's not too bad. Only thing is that you don't have a lot of time to truly enjoy the trip. I'd recommend to go to the blue lagoon on a separate day to take full advantage of it.
As for the rest, incredibly beautiful. If going in November/December, make sure to bring gloves and PROPER shoes to the Gulfoss. The entire thing was covered in ice and it was painstaking watching people walking to this waterfall in sneakers or boots. Again, were the proper shoes!
The tour guide was beyond amazing- very engaging, funny, and easy to understand. Great trip, highly recommend it!
The Blue Lagoon isn't a natural hot springs, and it's quite busy, but otherwise it's quite lovely there are plenty natural hot springs in the country.
I'd recommend bringing your own towel as they charge rental otherwise. I'd also recommend flip flops as naturally it's FREEZING underfoot outside the water. The snow-covered mountains are a romantic backdrop for the outdoor lagoon. They provide mud for mud masks, plus a fun waterfall to mix it up a bit personally only so much relaxing I can do in a pool of warm water.
If you don't mind paying through the nose, the café is fine, but otherwise bring your own food. You'll be hungry after that hardcore relaxation
The Golden Circle is breath-taking and I'd quite like to go back and see it at my own pace. We didn't have quite enough time at any of the stops still enough to get an idea of them, take pictures.. but.. exploration!! Gulfoss waterfall, the geysers... it truly is the land of fire and ice. Thingvellir National park never gets old, we went back the next day. You just get to drive through it on this trip it gives a taster if nothing else.
This was one Wesome tour. Loved all of the information received on the Golden Half Circle portion of the tour. Amazing photos opportunities. The Blue Lagoon was awesome. The next time I go back, I will spend almost the entire day there.
Excellent combo. Sufficient time to get a flavour of the Blue LAgoon and the golden circle tour was outstanding.
both trips were fabulous, better than we imagined. all the arrangements were simple and everyone was helpful. We couldn't have been more appreciative.
WOW. Best tour ever. Blue lagoon so relaxing an unique. in fact everything was unique. the geyser, and the waterfall incredible. but most of all the best part was out tour guide Swan. he was incredible. very knowledgable. recommended to everyone. do not leave Iceland without doing the tour.

Very happy with all aspects of the trip. Great value with lots of Icelandic exposure. Blue Lagoon was streamline, modern and exceeded my expectations. Golden Circle Tour Guide was informative and humorous. Buses were clean and comfortable. Wish that Blue Lagoon came in the afternoon and Golden Circle 1/2 day tour in the morning but there's probably a good reason for the order selected.. Thank you.
Tour was amazing ! Long day but well worth it to get everything in you need to see, blue lagoon was most definitely the highlight
tour guide was fantastic, covert informative and funny. Blue lagoon in the morning then back to the station, had lunch next door then the golden circle in the afternoon. Amazing tour, so much to see. Highly recommend Gray Line. We had a mix up with our drop off but they got us a seperate coach home.
Terrific deal. Friendly drivers. Our guide for Golden Circle, Swan, was just excellent. Great experience.
Great day though a long one. We really enjoyed the tour, the scenery. The guide who helped us perfect the Icelandic HUH as seen at the World Cup. To top it off the whippy icecream in shop by geysers amazing! Learnt a lot about the history and current economics of the country. It's a trip that has to be done!
To top off we helped to commiserate with Iceland when France won that night. The atmosphere in town fantastic as was the obvious understandable pride they took in their national football team.
A day and weekend to remember!
Blue lagoon is amazing but it's not a good idea of you to put this as first stop - only one hour to stay in the warm blue lagoon to leave and go to the other places. Blue lagoon should be the last stop. Overall is an amazing trip. Thanks Viator.
I loved the day. The morning at the Blue Lagoon was fabulous. The water and total experience were wonderful. they are very well organized there and being able to get a drink in the water was just so civilized. The afternoon tour was great. Gullfoss was incredible and the geysers were exciting - I recommend it all to everyone going to Iceland.
I saw everything I wanted to and there was plenty of time at each stop.
We couldn't have a better guide to the Golden Circle Tour! She was great!!!
Our last day in Iceland was this tour. We should have stayed longer at the lagoon, it was so beautiful, and unlike anything we have ever seen before!
