Small group golden circle- fabulous day out!
, Dec 2021
Ian was our fantastic tour guide who is a fountain of knowledge - I cannot recommend him enough! The time spent in each location was plenty to soak in the beautiful sights and the secret lagoon was absolutely wonderful! Also the people on the small bus tour were so lovely- so all in all a fantastic day out!

Golden tour with golden memories

Our driver Jakob was very informative and fantastic the entire trip! He even stopped specially for my daughter to see the Icelandic horses. Would highly recommend this trip.

Thank you for your review. We always try to do something special for the children too. We like to see them happy enjoying the tour too. We wish you well.
Great tour- loved blue lagoon
, Nov 2021
This was a smaller mini bus style tour, and felt a lot more personal than some of the bigger coaches offering similar tours. Tour guide was very knowledgeable, and ticked lots of the golden circle bucket list things off, including a few extras too like a visit to a small stable to see horse, and scenic view over lakes. Only criticism would be that the lunch was extremely rushed, so we had little time to eat lunch and see the waterfall. After a busy day, it was great finishing in secret lagoon, and we got over an hour in there to relax. Would recommend.

Hi Alex! Thanks for your review. Sorry for the quick lunch, but we're glad you were able to see all the sites. Things get a little rushed in the winter with the shorter hours of daylight. Hope you get to see some Northern Lights on your trip here.
Great tour just need more time at Gulfoss
, Nov 2021
We enjoyed our tour and the information given to us by our guide. The only thing I didn’t like was we were not given near enough time at Gulfoss. One hour to walk to see the waterfall, order and eat lunch and then try to buy a souvenir was way too short. An hour and a half at that location would be much better.

Hi Mary! It is tricky to get all the sights in with the shortening daylight hours. Thanks for your review! Hope you enjoyed your tour with us and your time in Iceland.
An excellent, informative trip
, Nov 2021
Ian was an excellent guide, so knowledgable. There tour was really fascinating and didn't feel rushed. The cafe at Gullfoss was a lovely place for lunch. There were so many amazing sights and ending with the secret lagoon was perfect.

Thank you for your review. Ian is an excellent guide, knowledgable and we are proud to have. We are happy that you liked our tour and the arrangements.
A great tour and great tour guide
, Nov 2021
I think the Falls were probably my favorite. Beautiful views and nice visitor center/restaurant. Our guide, Ian, was very knowledgeable and going to the secret lagoon was apparently better than the blue lagoon according to the locals I talked to. Overall, a great day.

Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the tour with Ian. He is knowledgeable, kind, and great fun to be with. Hope to see you again someday.
An informative and enjoyable tour

Our guide, Ian, was very knowledgeable and friendly, sharing lots of great facts throughout the day. Pick up was on time and the timings for the day worked well. It is difficult to choose a favourite part of the tour as we really enjoyed it all! Thank you for a brilliant day!

Great Golden Circle Tour

Gummi(sp?) was a great guide who kept us interested the whole tour with Icelandic history and folklore. The last stop at the Secret Lagoon was a fitting way to end the tour.
