  • Tour guide was great, very friendly and helpful. More detailed historical and geological explanation at each site would have been appreciated.

  • Great tour. Highly recommended. Marvelous tourguide. Nice stops - The secret lagoon was very special.
    The pick-up however, was a bit stressfull because there was no Viator logo on the minibus. The bus was late and had a strange time schedule.

  • The small group golden circle and secret lagoon tour was the best of the three tours I took on my Iceland stopover. It was the only tour I took on Artic Adventures. I think if I could only go one place in Iceland it would be Thingvellir National Park. The combination of history and natural beauty was amazing. Ending the day at the not-so-secret lagoon was a treat. I enjoyed it far more than the Blue Lagoon. Our guide Finn was also terrific! Informative, helpful, humorous, and outgoing. He made the tour great.

  • Excellent tour and great tour guide

  • Absolutely amazing and I would totally recommend this, especially for people going to Iceland for very short trips. A lot of great landmarks are covered and the trip to the hot springs is such a different and nice experience. The trip is very well planned, which makes it very efficient - no rush, but no time wasted either. The driver was very knowledgeable and friendly and made the trip even more fun despite the terrible weather we had.

  • This small bus/group tour showed us a lot of Iceland. The guide/driver was well informed and gave us a lot of good information and history. For my daughter and I the highlight was the Secret Lagoon hot springs. I had been to the Blue Lagoon a couple of years ago and felt that it was just a big commercial zoo when compared to this experience. Sadly we had a cold and wet sometimes VERY wet day but we still enjoyed the tour and the smaller roads and places the small bus was suited for.

  • refreshing for body and relaxing experience especially after a 8 hours flight

  • We enjoyed our golden circle tour and the secret lagoon hot springs. It was a fun day and the sites we saw were all very worthwhile. We also really loved our guide, Yannis, who was informative, patient, and overall knowledgeable about the history and geology of the sites we visit. The reason I'm giving 3 stars - and maybe it should be lower - is because we signed up for a tour that was supposed to be small group and it was supposed to be 9 hours, with an 8:00 but possibly delayed until 8:30 pickup. In actuality, they combined our tour with another tour group that signed up for an 11 hour golden circle plus rafting trip. We were picked up a little after 8:30 and ended up getting back to Reykjavik at 8:15 - so closer to 12 hours. And the rafting group was an additional 10 people - so it was sort of a small group tour but larger than we expected, and it was definitely NOT a 9 hour tour. To make matters worse, we had made dinner reservation at Fish Market for 8 PM, had to move it to 8:30, showed up in our ratty clothes and holding wet bathing suits, and finished dinner around 11 PM. This could have all been avoided if the tour company delivered what was described in the brochure and on the website. Oh, and we had a 30-40 minute drive to drop off the rafting group at their rafting site and then another 30 minute trip back to pick them up. So the 12 hour trip wasn't all site seeing. SO - to recap - we had a very nice day with a great guide but were stressed about the time - which all could have been avoided if the tour company were more up front and honest about exactly what we signed up for!

  • I would highly recommend this tour. I only had two days in Reykjavik and this tour allowed me to see many places that I did not have to navigate on my own. We did the hot springs first before the crowds arrived, had a bonus stop at Faxi Falls, then on to Gesir, Gulifoss and Thingvellir National Park. We were in a smaller van and that was great rather than a huge bus with lots of people. Our guide was great. It is a very full day with lots of driving but so worth it! Exceeded my expectations.

  • Made sense doing both in one day. Our guide, Finn, was funny and made sure to show us even a few spots not on the traditional tour.
