Overview
The Golden Circle is a must for anyone visiting Reykjavik, but a DIY trip means going guideless and navigating public buses or a rental car. This tour lets you focus on the scenery without transport or parking worries, and provides full lowdowns on the sights of Gullfoss, Thingvellir, and Geysir. A stop at Kerid crater lake, which isn't included on some similar tours, and hotel and port pickup and drop-off are included.

What to Expect
After pickup from your central Reykjavik hotel or Reykjavik cruise port, settle into your comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle with a guide and travel into Iceland’s countryside to see the Golden Circle sights. First up is the near-neon blue Kerid crater lake. Continue to Gullfoss, whose name means 'Golden Falls,’ and take in this stunning, tiered waterfall as it plunges 105 feet (32 meters) into the Hvita River. From there, travel to Geysir geothermal area, an expanse of bubbling pools, vents, and geysers. Explore here and see the most active hot spring, Strokkur, steaming water 98 feet (30 meters) into the air every eight minutes. From here, visit the UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park, home to a rift between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Learn how the plates are slowly moving apart, and see their exposed ridges. After this final stop, travel back to Reykjavik where your tour concludes at the original departure point.

This is a great tour. The route is excellent, the bus was comfortable and spotlessly clean, and our guide, Ásgeir, was ace - a man with an obvious natural talent for his work. If you can't drive or are simply pushed for time, this is an excellent way to spend a day and feast

Everything was fine, including the pick-up, interesting facts about Iceland, beautiful spots themselves that were included in a tour and the weather. But I would suggest spending more time at the spots in order to enjoy the beauty for longer. Thank you anyway!

It was a good trip!! Good guide! I WAS told that it would be a big group and that's what it was. Guess what I got from it is that I should have gone with a company that did smaller groups. No complaints with this company.

Thanks for taking the time to leave this nice review. We do offer big coach tours, small minibus group tours (no more than 18) and smaller private tours for all group sizes. We hope that when you return to Iceland you'll take a small group tour with us!
