“non stop natural wonders”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

The golden circle is essential especially if you only have a little time. The guide keeps you company all the way with interesting information about iceland. You get to walk right up to the geysers and waterfalls so it is an amazing experience. The South tour is also wonderful. Iceland is an incredible country and well worth a visit. We went with Reyjavik Excursions.

“Amazing day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

The guide was great, we learned so much. What an experience to see a Geyser.

However, on the downside its all very rushed to fit in as much a possible. But I say leave out the Cathedral which looked like a church and give more time at the other attractions.

“Gateway To Iceland Tour company - brilliant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2013

Brilliant - the natural highlights of the geysirs and waterfall with Oli the driver and guide, a great way to see Iceland's highlights and only about an hour and a bit from the capital so not too long in the coach. Great day out.

“Superb trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2013

Excellent day out, taking in the stunning scenery and 3 particular highlights - the National Park, Gullfoss waterfall and the Geysers. A very well-organised tour from Grayline and a "must" if time and funds permit.

“Fantastic tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

I was on a tour from a cruise ship, and it was the best tour of the whole cruise. We actually had time at each stop. The stops included Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss, the geysers, a geothermal plant and the Pearl. If one has limited time to spend in Iceland, or in Reykjavik, doing the Golden Circle certainly gives you a solid taste of the diversity of the country.
