We participated in a group tour with Gateway Tours in Reykjavik, Iceland from our cruise ship. One of our passengers arranged this custom tour via Cruise Critic. Our group had 3 minibuses and we were in bus # 3. [The other 2 buses were going to combine this 8 hr tour with a Northern Lights tour and remain out until... More

I booked the Golden Circle and Northern Lights tour for a group from a cruise ship. Elna from GTI did a super job keeping all the names and bus assignments straight. She was there to welcome our group and send us off to the buses. The tour itself was one of the best on our trip. The guides were very... More

My husband and I recently visited Iceland and were torn between hiring a car to see the sights ourselves and booking onto guided tours. In the end, we decided to go on tours through Gateway to Iceland and we were so glad that we did! We went on the Golden Circle and Glacial Lagoon tours and had Gummi as our... More

There are lots of Golden Circle tours but I was so glad to have gone with Gateway to Iceland. There were just 6 people on the tour, and Gummi was a font of knowledge on Icelandic history, culture, geology and legend. His stories and insight into his amazing country really brought the tour to life.

My husband and I did the South Coast tour with Gateway to Iceland this August. It was an excellent tour. Our tour guide was knowledgeable about the sights, but also shared with us his opinions, thoughts, and insights to other aspects of Icelandic society and culture. The tour was also small-- 7 people (including ourselves)-- which made for a very... More

We are very glad that we found this company to take our tours while we visited Iceland! We did the "hot golden circle" and "glacial lagoon" tours and were lucky enough to have "Gummi" as our guide both times. Our tour sizes were four people large each time and Gummi was able to take us places that large bus tours... More

I traveled with my two kids to Iceland in March. For reasons too complex to get into, this was a rather last minute trip, but also pretty long at ten days. Since it was the off season and the weather is so variable in Iceland, I didn't pre-book excursions, but waited to do so after we arrived. I knew I... More

Gateway to Iceland was a fantastic and sensible way to explore the far-flung corners of a truly unique and wonderful country. The guides are friendly, warm and entertaining, providing an engaging stream of stories, history, local lore and opinions as they take you to sites both on and off the beaten path. Many spots we visited would have been inaccessible... More

We were very happy with GTI. Especially because we got to go on a small bus, our group was apparently quite large for this company at15 people but felt a lot better than being on one of giant buses. And it was a beautiful way to get acquainted with the Golden Circle. We even stopped at an old church and... More

The "South Shore Adventure" day trip fromReykjavik is a great introduction to this part of Iceland. Better with sunshine I am certain but adaptations were made by our guide to mitigate this. Our guide, who's name I shall not try to spell, was knowledgable about anything one could imagine asking about. The smaller size of the vehicle and group was... More
