Duration: 7 hours
Stop At: Thingvellir National Park, Pingvellir, Thingvellir 801 Iceland
Learn about some of the thrilling and somewhat gruesome history of Iceland at Thingvellir National Park. It’s significance is so great that it is a designated UNESCO world heritage site. You’ll walk the grounds where Icelandic democracy began and visit sites where Viking-era justice was carried out including the Drowning Pool and the Gallows Rock.

Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: Geysir, Haukadalur Iceland
The Great Geysir, the first of its name, resides in Haukadalur in the Geysir Geothermal Area. The entire area is bubbling with geothermal activity from steam vents to boiling mud pits and the real stars of the geothermal show, the geysers. All other geysers, the world over, are named for Geysir.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: Strokkur, Haukadalsvegur, Geysir Iceland
While the Great Geysir erupts only occasionally these days, the last time being in 2016, nearby geyser Strokkur erupts regularly delighting onlookers by shooting hot water high into the air every few minutes.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: Gullfoss, White River, Blaskogabyggd 801 Iceland
The most popular waterfall in Iceland is, without a doubt, Gullfoss (the golden falls). And that is saying quite a lot in a country that is home to thousands of waterfalls. Gullfoss is also considered by many to be one of the most beautiful in Iceland and it is certainly one of the largest. Hearing the roar of the Hvita River as it plunges 32 meters over two tiers into the gorge below is exhilarating. On sunny days, rainbows are abundant in the mist rising from the falls and there are several paths available around the waterfall including one leading down to its bottom so come equipped with your raincoat and have your camera at the ready.

The views were breath-taking and there are not enough adjectives to describe how beautiful the Golden Circle really and truly is.
If you have limited time this tour hits the highlights. Comfortable transportation, friendly driver, amazing landscapes.
It is so much better in person than the picture which gives a glimpse of these falls and the gorge below. Plus our guide explained how we were amid the North American and European tectonic plates which joined in the area and showed us how the land had subsided and where the junctions were. Stopped by Geysir as part of the tour which erupts every couple minutes but need to be quick with the camera
We had an excellent day! The trip covered all locations as advertised, as well as much more information. Our guide was very good and able to answer all questions. The entire tour was very interesting and I would highly recommend it.
Our tour guide Holli was great. Dad jokes and all. Very knowledgeable in Icelandic history. Our weather was spectacular and the scenery speaks for itself. The waterfall with the mountains and glaciers in view was amazing. We had plenty of time at each spot and really enjoyed the gift shops. Marek was an excellent driver as well.
Tour bus was not there when got off cruise ship . Many of us looking for the bus all over the lot. Other buses pointing in all different directions. After tour bus got there, everything went fine. Tour, driver and guide were excellent.
I loved every minute of this tour. We visited many interesting sites which were great to see. I recommend this tour. Here are some suggestions: Take a water-proof jacket or raincoat. If you want to get close to the waterfall, you should be prepared. The right shoes are important for this tour! I brought along my hiking, sturdy shoes. The way down to the waterfall might be slippery, so I was happy to have the proper shoes. Time for lunch is quite tight. I suggest you grab a quick sandwich and enjoy the view instead. We had a bigger lunch and then had to rush to see the waterfall.
The tour was well organised. Our guide, Yakub was knowledgeable, funny and interesting. The driver, Onskitn(can't remember his name properly) drove well through icy and snowy roads in Iceland
Very pleased with the attractions we saw and lunch options during the day was better than expected. Our guide was very good and taking care of us, assisting with questions and queries. We were back later than expected due to an unscheduled stop which worked out fine in the end.
This was an amazing full day trip which included visits to various sites. The scenery was stunning and the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. The coach was warm and comfortable which you need as it was -8 outside!! Plenty of great opportunities for the budding photographer!
Very good with knowledgeable tour guide. Pack your thermals as very cold in January. Suitable timings for stop offs to see sights and to eat. (If you’re into pokemon go, plenty of stops on the way) :)
Great tour despite the weather! Guide was very good Would highly recommend Good Value for money, all day tour
Tour was wonderful! Our guide was fantastic and was available for questions throughout the tour. The sights we were taken to were very beautiful and interesting. Would certainly book another tour with them. Only negative was that we were not dropped off at the same location that we were picked up from. Not a huge deal, but not being too familiar with the city, it just made us navigate a new area.
We took the tour on 1/1/19 and had a wonderful time. The service was extremely professional and our tour guide Simon was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. I HIGHLY recommend this company.From the beginning when I called to book it the sales agent was courteous handling the reservation.I look forward to booking my next excursion!
