Overview
The Golden Circle is a collection of Iceland's most famous natural wonders and a must-see for any visitor to Iceland. You will see the famous erupting geyser and hot springs, experience the spectacular Gullfoss Waterfall and walk in the footsteps of Vikings through the lava canyon where the American and Eurasian continents have dramatically pulled apart in Þingvellir (Thingvellir) National Park. In addition to a live guide, the tour also comes equipped with a personal computer tablet in each seat complete with an audio guide in 10 languages.
Highlights
  • Free pick-up and drop-off from your Reykjavik hotel included 
  • Save time and see three of Iceland's most famous landmarks in half a day
  • Visit Thingvellir National Park—a UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • A great choice for visitors with limited time 
What to Expect
After a morning pickup from your Reykjavik hotel, you'll travel in style on a bus with Wi-Fi access and GPS sensitive tablets with audio commentary. A guide provides commentary during the bus journey.  The tour starts at UNESCO World Heritage Site, Thingvellir National Park. Here you can see where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates have pulled apart and created a rift valley: its an amazing place to take photos of Iceland's largest lake and enjoy panoramic views. Next you'll stop off at Geysir Hot Springs, where you'll witness the world-famous erupting Strokkur Geyser. If you're hungry, you'll be able to pick up snacks and drinks from shops here. Finally, you'll head to the stunning Gullfoss Waterfall. The two-tiered waterfall cascades down 104 feet (32 meters) and roars as the water hits the glacial lake at the base. Your day finishes with a drop-off at your hotel.

I wish I could remember my tour guides name but it was 12/4 the 8am trip. He was awesome and very knowledgeable about each site we visited. This covered 1. Thingvellir National Park 2.Geysir 3. Because we were a bit ahead of schedule we were allowed to stop and say hello to

We met the bus at the main terminal which was easy to get to and had free parking. The entire tour was amazing, mostly because of our guide John. Extremely personable and answered tons of questions. For a shorter tour it did not feel rushed at all. Highly recommend

We booked a 12pm tour which the operator cancelled with less than 24hours to go and moved us to the 9am tour. We were arriving in Reykjavik the morning of the tour(which is why we had booked the 12pm tour in the first place) so we had no other option but to spend more money than
