    This is really two tours. The first tour of the city gave a very good overview of Reykjavík. The second tour, the golden circle, gave his good a introduction to the interior of the island Enjoyed both tours and would recommend the tour.

    Nobody told me that tere is a break between Reykjavik Sightseeing and Gullfoss....Tour.

    Do not book this tour - maybe just stick with the Golden Circle and bypass the Reykjavik part completely. I thought this would give me a basiv overview of the city so that I could then go exploring on my own. We actually just sat on a bus for several hours while a couple of things were pointed out to us. At one stage the coach driver attempted to drive into/past an underground carpark with a height limit ...... that was less than the bus height. Much crunching and scraping later we managed to reverse out again ! Then there was an hour stopover at the bus station in between these 2 tours - which wasn't all bad as the food was good - but not somewhere I want to spend my holiday. Tour of the Golden Circle was better - I would recommend this part only. This was also ruined by the fact that we arrived back into Reykjavik in a blizzard. The coach was going to drop us off as near to our hotels as possible ....... unfortunately the tour guide got increasingly vague about which hotels were at which stops and then just announced this was the stop for all mid-town hotels. Seeing as I had just arrived I had no idea if this included me or not. Therefore I eventually left the bus with a vague wave of the hand from the guide that you hotel is in 'that direction'. With the bad weather this didn't make the wandering around for 20 mins trying to find the hotel easy. Was not a great end to the very long day !

    Lovely tour, cheerful guide and refreshing experience. This is the safest place in the world. We actual stood in front of the president's home. No security just the welcoming coastal waters welcoming you. Amazing!

    It was a very informative tour of Reykjavik and attractions around the area. I found it to be very good for a our short stay in Iceland and it gives you a good impression of the main attractions of the city and its surroundings.

    This tour was fantastic and you get to see the main tourist hotspots in one go. It is a long day with lots of time on the coach but there is so much to see that it isn't boring and the stops make it well worth the trip. Would definitely recommend.

    Very interesting tour split into 2 parts first a nice tour around the outskirts of reykjavik very good guide.
    The second part of the day was actually the golden circle tour so all the sites and again very good guide called john

    Despite doing this trip in the middle of winter it was well worth doing and a wonderful way of seeing the landscape outside of Reykjavik. The guide and driver were excellent and very informative. Would highly recommend

  • 30-Nov-2014

    We got a great feel for 2 different areas all in one day. Combining both for same day was perfect for our time frame.

  • 12-Oct-2014

    Tour exceeded our expectations. The people of Iceland are extremely gracious hosts and are willing to share their history, culture, personal opionions.
    In fact the locals have convinced me that elves exist!
    The true measure of a successful tour is whether one will spend the time and money to return and invest in other Viator tours of Iceland. I will.
    A travelor of 100+ countries.
