Stop At: Thingvellir National Park, Thingvellir, South Region

Continue on to the impressive Gullfoss waterfall, widely considered to be one of Iceland's most beautiful sights. Gullfoss is fed by the Hvt River, which tumbles down dramatically over a series of rocky steps into deep plunge pools below. Marvel at the falls power and perhaps take a moment to capture the views on camera.

Duration: 1 hour

    We are currently on five day Holiday and today we went on the Golden circle tour. Our tour guide for the day was Darren with driver Herman, who were both truly exceptional and a true asset to this tour company. Darren started the tour off by requesting all on board if comfortable to do so turn to each person next to them and say high and find out from what country the originate from, this then started a very friendly and good atmosphere on the bus, his knowledge of the country and local ways / sites was second to none and myself and my wife learnt so much about Iceland in one day not only on the sites planned but I Iceland in general. This tour was 100% worth every penny spent and would highly recommend to anyone wishing to pre plan trips, even better if you get Darren and Herman 👍 Thanks both for making this day most memorable and the Lamb soup at the waterfall restaurant recommendation spot on 👏

    We did the classic golden circle tour. It was an excellent experience. The sires are all beautiful and fascinating, and our guide was really knowledgeable. The bus was comfortable and we were given just enough time at each of the sites. We started the tour at 10am. That was about right as I think if we went any earlier it would have been too dark to see anything.

    So glad we went on this trip, the guide was helpful and friendly, Even lent me his phone charger, the driver was chatty and friendly also, made the trip feel very personal, enjoyed going round Iceland to see its amazing landscape and beauty!

    The tour guide was excellent. Very informative. The length of the tour was perfect. We left at 10am and saw all the sights in daylight. The beauty of this country is breathtaking. And feeding the horses at the end of the trip was a fun way to finish the tour. Would highly recommend this Golden Circle tour.

    What an amazing experience! The tour was well organised and enjoyable for all. Our tour guide was very chatty and informative, he had lots of info to pass on during the long drives. We had plenty of time at each place and thoroughly enjoyed the trip! 💫

    This is the perfect trip if you do not want to do the 10-12 hour options. We picked the early morning tour, however, during this time of year it was hard to see some of the sights as the sun was not up yet. The Gullfoss was spectacular, pictures don’t do it justice! The Geysir was fun, I recommend taking a bit longer hike to see it from a higher point! We even had enough time to stop and see some Icelandic horses!

    Excellent trip I would totally recommend the Golden circle tour. Our tour guide Darren was very informative with good humour, he made the trip more interesting and enjoyable. Darren and the bus driver, who's name I can't remember, beginning with H worked well together and made a great team. The trip was well timed visiting 3 stops. Just wish we could have had 10 mins longer at the Geyser

    Oliver was our guide and he was calm, knowledgeable and friendly. The tour was organised and on time. The coach was really warm and comfortable. The locations were fantastic. I can see why this tour has such great reviews. It is a well oiled machine but you don’t feel the staff are jaded. We are all able bodied, but I noted that despite the wild locations, Iceland has enabled people of any physical capacity to visit as there are car parks and toilets and easily accessed viewing platforms everywhere. So impressive!

    The Golden Circle Tour from Reykjavik is a a must. Our private shore excursion through FAB travel included Gullfoss, Geysir, and the national park where you will stand between the North American and Euro-asian tetonic plates. Presuming all non-ship excursions will provide you an experience that will be most memorable with wonderful commentary. Avoid the big buses and book a small tour, it will not be regretted.

    Excellent intro to the surrounding natural features around Reykjavik. A busy trip but also excellent.
