Our final stop is at Gullfoss Waterfall, where you can go for an easy walk down to the edge of the waterfall, an unforgettable sight to behold. Here the powerful glacial river flows down 32 meters on two levels and into a narrow canyon with a thunderous roar.

  • The guide didn't talk or explain anything. He relied entirely on the information from the tablet given to everyone. Access to waterfall was dangerously icy.

  • Loved this tour, excellent coach with commentary and fabulous stops. Plenty of time at each stop to look around, grab something to eat or use the facilities. Highly recommend this tour

  • Highly recommended tour ! All three stops Pingvellir, Geysir and Golfoss Waterfall were awesome. Very comfortable bus and our guide Siggy was funny, entertaining and informative.

  • The trip was fantastic even though we did not get to go on the Northern Lights tour due to bad weather not sure if we can get our money back for this, will have to check but apart from that the trip was most enjoyable even with the wet weather, the transfer from the hotel was with Greyline and we had no problem with they were most helpful and on time. The hotel was okay for us the room was clean and tidy and the staff were most helpful in making calls for us to the tour operators. We should have been on the Golden Circle Tour at 9am but due to high winds it was cancelled until 12 Noon so we just had a walk around the area to kill some time. The tour was fantastic and good value for money,the tour guide was first class and he was full of information about Iceland. The only down side was that everything was very expensive even the tour guide said that it is getting hard for them as well with everything going up. Anyone going there should take an everyday item in the U.K and multiply it by four that would be the best way to judge how much spends you would need. I would certainly go again as it is a fantastic country and very friendly people mostly. If when you are leaving and want to change your leftover Krona at the airport be sure to take a number ticket or feel the wrath of the woman behind the counter.

  • An awesome day visiting 3 natural wonders and learning so much about this amazing country. Reykjavík Sightseeing was a wonderful company to deal with and their guide Johanna very friendly and knowledgeable.

  • Took us to the 3 spectacular stops as promised. All good didnt really use the iPad commentary but a useful aid for some. Long enough at each stop. Though use the toilets before the last stop which was the waterfalls or you have to pay two hundred krona.
    Well worth doing if youve never been to Iceland before. Only marred by the half an hour delay whilst waiting to pick up a passenger from the secret lagoon else it would have been 5 s

  • Beautiful sights. The tour guide was funny and had great energy. She also shared lots of great information. Bus trip was comfortable and we had enough time at each stop.

  • great tour, it rained and some stops could have been shorter.

  • Great trip, weather was bad so all the accesses to the National Park was closed. The guide, driver were brilliant and made the trip interesting, saw some magnificent sites, plenty of stops to eat and shop. Fully recommend this trip.

  • The guides were friendly and knowledgeable. I really appreciated the iPads provided while on the bus, as this allowed us to hear detailed information about every area of the circle.

    My only complaint is that they didnt guide us during the actual tour. They gave us detailed information while on the bus, but when we arrived at different locations, the guides stayed on the bus. I noticed other tour groups had a guide with them as they explored areas. I found myself following other groups to learn more about the areas. Perhaps the express tour doesnt not include this type of service, but I did read this in the description.
