Perfect day trip! - Amazing trip from start to finish. We had a perfect day visiting lots of stunning places in the comfort of a smaller group and had a wonderful guide Trond, who brought the area to life with his stories, information and even singing!

Great Tour, worth the money. - Our tour picked us up right outside our hotel. Our tour guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable. She obviously enjoyed her job and like to work with people. I enjoyed being in the bills also and getting to know our fellow travelers. The tour itself was really wonderful also. We stopped and walked at the American side of the techtonic plates, a waterfall, the secret lagoon was wonderful and beautiful. Shopping at the little geyser and we even stopped to feed some Icelandic ponies. It was a great day and well worth the money.

Excellent trip - Trond our driver and guide met us right outside the cruise ship terminal in Reykjavik, which was very convenient and much appreciated. He proved to be an excellent driver and regaled us with interesting and amusing facts and tales of Iceland and what we would see on our Golden Circle tour. Timings were good for the various stops enroute and pace was just right. We felt well looked after. The Secret Lagoon was fun and relaxing and again sufficient time to visit. Booking with Viator was straightforward and they kept in touch via email, including day before reminder of instructions, drivers name and minibus registration. We have booked through Viator before and were impressed with streamline operation. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and would highly recommend. Good value for money.

A wonderful introduction to Iceland! - An amazing trip, worth every penny! Our tour guide was Trond; we were collected from the end of our road ( we stayed out of town in a suburban area) and Trond rang us to give an accurate pick up time so that we wouldn’t be standing in the cold. He was so knowledgeable and we had interesting commentary throughout; the weather was terrible as we approached the waterfall area, but we felt safe with Trond driving! So glad we hadn’t tried to drive ourselves! Waterfall, geysers, stunning views, an ice cream stop, Icelandic horses and a secret lagoon dip to end the day, before returning to town. Trond also sung us an Icelandic song in his deep baritone! Fantastic! What a day to start our holiday. Thank you so much Trond!

A fantastic tour - highly recommend - We really enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend it. Our tour guide, Tron was brilliant - he had such a good sense of humour while also being very informative and interesting. Food We brought our own water with us, cereals bars, and sandwiches. We stopped at a cafe for lunch at the Gulfoss Waterfall cafe so there was the option to buy food. It was very cold up near Gulfoss Waterfall with really icy winds so make sure you’re layered up well. We got back into Reykjavik at approximately 6:30pm. It was a fantastic tour; it was a nice, small number of people so that it felt quite personal and the various sights were beautiful.
