Fantastic Day with Hugi. All day he took us to everywhere on the road, towards and from the glacier lagoon. Conclusion: we saw much more than we paid for. The explications from our tourguide were interesting, told us not only the text-book facts but also "the inside" information. 😉 We left Reykjavik at 08:00, and were back around midnight. We... More

We took two tours with this company. The guide picked four of us up in the small bus along with 10 other people. While it sounds like a big group, it's not. The sites were spectacular like most of Iceland and the tour guide, Auður, was so SUPER NICE! Made everyone feel comfortable, and despite soaking rain and wind on... More

Our day out with Börkur, our driver and guide, was a great success. We were picked up from our hotel in a comfortable mini-bus, with 15 others, treated to a knowledgeable commentary on the history, geography and geology of the golden circle and ended it with a swim in the secret lagoon, Iceland's oldest geothermal swimming pool. The timing of... More

We booked the Hot Golden Circle tour the day before we took it and came away from it very happy. Our guide, Fridrik, spoke great English and had many wonderful stories and anecdotes to tell. The places we visited were Thingvellir, Geysir, Gulfloss and the Secret Lagoon. He gave us plenty of time to explore each place giving us tips... More

We were advised by our hotel to take this particular Golden Circle Tour and we were not disappointed in any way. The company uses small mini-buses which makes the tour more personalised.

I wanted my golden circle tour to be a bit more personalized and smaller, and because of this I booked with Gateway to Iceland. They start their tour later in the day than the big bus companies, so when you get to the attractions, the crowds are much smaller. The addition of the secret lagoon at the end is also... More

Ian was our guide for this tour, a Scottish ex-pat who loves Iceland so much that he retired there 5 years ago. He took us on an interesting an entertaining tour that covered many of the must-see places in the southwest "Golden Circle" region of Iceland. We saw Thingvellir Park, Geysir/Strokkur, and Gullfoss. We had to fight crowds, as this... More

Gateway to Iceland was recommended by staff at our hotel as a good alternative to the larger bus tours, featuring smaller groups touring by van. We took the Golden Circle tour with Donna as our guide. Donna speaks English fluently and is quite knowledgeable about Iceland, which made her explanations helpful and easy to understand. Compared to other tours we... More

Our guide (I think his name is Hagar?) was really knowledgeable. He talked about nature, culture, as well as economic issues. I really appreciated that. I am also glad that i booked this tour b/c it is a small van not a big 50pax bus.
