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

Hello and thank you so much for taking the time to leave us such a nice review. We are glad you enjoyed our smaller approach to doing tours and we agree leaving later and going into the secret lagoon does make the tour more enjoyable. Glad you enjoyed it! 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.

I took a Glacier Lagoon tour in March and could not have been more pleased with the service, tour value, and overall experience! Since I was online in Iceland a couple of days, they helped me really take full of advantage of seeing a huge scope of things on the one tour. The tour guide was knowledgeable, humorous and very...

Went on 3 tours with this company and received great value for money, loads of local information both historical and geographical. Would recommend the Ice lagoon, Hot Golden Circle tour and the Snaefellsnes peninsula. Would have gone on the other tours but ran out of time.

With just one day in Reykjavik, it was hard to decide how to fill in the day. Eventually, we picked the Golden Circle tour, with tour guide Gummi. It was amazing. He showed us all the pretty places and sights, and his knowledge about Iceland is incredible. Visiting the geysers was one of the highlights, and Gummi knew exactly when... More
