    I loved the tour. The water fall was my favorite. It was a lot of walking, but well worth it. I loved how much time they gave you to see each attraction.

    I was never picked up from the bus stop. I never received a call from Viator. I Lost my money for the tour.

    I loved this tour. The tour company was Bustravel and they really are great. The tour guide was Jona and she was amazing. She had a great personality and was so friendly and knowledgeable. I would definitely use this company again and I would highly recommend it.

    This tour was AMAZING. This was my second time doing a Golden Circle tour first time was through another supplier, so I feel that I can fully appreciate how great this tour was compared to my previous experience. Although we were on a large bus, it was not fully packed and the entire tour was in English last time, we were crammed in like sardines and the tour was in multiple languages. We were able to do basically everything we did on the last tour, just in 6 hours instead of 10 although, on the other tour, I went to a church instead of Kerid. It was very action packed and fast, but I liked that. I felt that there was just enough time at each stop. Our guide, Iris, was incredible. She was so sweet and her voice was very soothing. You can really tell she cares about Iceland and she wanted to share her love for Iceland with all of us she shared stories about her family in relation to Icelandic history, and at the end of the tour, she sang a lullaby. I also asked her if we could make a stop at a stable to pet some Icelandic horses, and she made that happen even though it wasn't on the official itinerary!

    This was my first time travelling with the supplier and I found them to be reliable and responsive to my emails.

    The tour was the perfect amount of length and we got to see all the main stops along the Golden Circle route. Our tour guide Flossy was incredibly knowledgeable and knew a ton of facts regarding the stops and landscapes as we passed. Highly recommend.
