My friend and I visited Reykjavik this March/April, and while we were there, one of our main goals was to see the Northern Lights. We did a boat tour one of our first nights there, but the lights were very dim, so we decided to try again the next night. We booked our tour with Gateway to Iceland with the... More

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and kind. Two of us joined 6 others for a fun and memorable day. We started as strangers but ended as friends. We chose the "hot" option and so enjoyed a pleasant warm water soak at the end of the day.

My husband and I took this tour on Tuesday and can highly recommend it! Having a small tour group was great, as we all got to know each other. John our tour guide was very knowledgeable and I enjoyed listening to him discuss everything from the landscape to tourism, etc.

They were always in contact with myself in regards to tours and if you book three tours was offered a discount. Even though one of the trips was cancelled due to me being the only one they did offer alternative tour. Also it was a small tour so everyone got on well as guides were extremely knowledgeable. Will use them... More

Have you ever wanted to really know the history of a place you're visiting? Gateway to Iceland is probably the closest I have ever been to feeling like I was actually a local. I was lucky enough to get Gummi as my tour guide on multiple tours and this made my trip to Iceland significantly better. He shares stories about... More

Small group tours to major attractions was our goal - and successfully met. Each guide was personable, well informed, responsive to questions and situations, as well as safe drivers on roads that can be narrow and curvy. Our tour numbers were between 5 and 9 allowing for bus camaraderie and a set trip that felt flexible to individual needs without... More

Thanks Hoogi for a great day viewing the sights of Iceland's Golden Circle. It was great to be in a small group (maximim16 per bus) and the trip to the hot pool at the end was a perfect end to the day.
