Owner description: Operating only a few select daily scheduled tours which are always in small groups, Iceland Horizon is a small, family run tour operation with no intention of becoming a large bus company. Our philosophy has always been that you are travelling on a guided tour and the bus is just a means of transport, keeping the experience more personal, friendly and fun for both travellers and guides. We also arrange tours for groups wanting a private or individual arrangement.

We took this trip on 27th May. We chose the company on the strength of the reviews we had read and were not dissapointed. In total there were 11 of us in a virtually brand new Mercedes minibus. Gerda our guide was extremely knowledgeable and informative and really made a huge difference to our experience. The small party size also meant we were able to detour from the usual route and to stop wherever something attracted attention. This included stopping beside a field of Icelandic horses where we saw a newborn foal attempt its first steps......

The other advantage of a minibus is it minimises the amount of time waiting for other passengers to board or disembark.....

The sites were stunning, of course. I was especially impressed at Thingvellir where we were able to and stop at several places along the edge of the lake.

Overal highly recommended - probably the most enjoyable organised excursion I have ever taken.

We went on the evening tour of the golden circle, and because the midnight sun was around it was amazing to be looking at the geysers and the landscape at midnight whilst still looking like it was daytime, the guide was excellent even treating us to her opera singing on the way back.

Early start, still dark in February, but long way to go.
Amazing sights all around the island, with a very experienced guide/driver. Stopped at many sights with plenty of time for photographs and taking in the breathtaking views.
Brilliant tour and highly recommended

Took a day your to see the golden circle . Loved the tour guide... Arture... And the tour itself. Interesting with enough time to see each place but not too much time. Small van like bus was ideal for the 11 people on the tour . Would highly recommend them

We selected the Iceland Horizon tour for a couple of reasons. The first is I try to avoid those big coach tours were you are shuttled around with no personal experience & feel like a number. The second was all the great reviews on tripadvisor.

Our tour guide for the day was David. Even though he is from England he has lived in Iceland a very long time & knows the place so well. Along the tour he gave us interesting facts about the country & its people. As the weather forecast wasnt looking so great he actually moved around the stops of the tour & luckily this worked out with us only getting 1 downpour at the national park.

He also spoke about other tours he does, not to sell them to us but because some people asked if this was the only trip he did. The other tours sound great & when I go back to Iceland for the northern lights i'm going to make sure I try out his other trips.
