We booked the special that included airport transfers, Blue Lagoon transfers and a Golden Circle tour. We were picked up on time for each leg that we booked. The Golden Circle tour was excellent and very informative. We went in a small mini van which was excellent compared to the large tour buses that we saw. I can recommend this... More

We bought a round trip ticket from the hostel in Reykjavik to the Blue Lagoon. Everything started out okay but when we decided to return home the bus left us. We wanted to catch the 7:30pm bus back to the city so we went and waited at the Parking lot where we were first dropped off earlier that afternoon (we... More

First thing, if I had my time in Iceland again, I wouldn't book one of these trips, I'd hire a car and travel at my own leisure, stopping to take what would probably be 1000's of photos. But, I was only in Iceland for three days, so if I wanted to see as much of the country as I could... More

Booked a package deal with Bustravel our plane arrived late into Reykjavik and when we made it through customs and got our bags the bus had left. We called them and were told that there would be no more buses coming soon and to arrange our own ride into the city and they would re-pay us on our tour. We... More

We took the trip to Glacier Lagoon - a 13 hour day. The guide was very well informed, the scenery is spectacular and we stuck to the timeline very well. A minor concern is that where we stopped to buy a to-go lunch was extremely limited (bring your own is better.) The biggest issue is that they assigned a 10... More

From reading, there seems to be mixed results. I had no problems with my booking/experience. Had the special booking of to/from the airport, return transfer to Blue Lagoon and the Golden Circle. Was picked up on time leaving and coming back to the airport as well as the Blue Lagoon. I had Ingvar as my Golden Circle guide and he... More

There's many things I could say. But I'll make it short, BusTravel should rename itself VanTravel. Nothing wrong with the driver, he was nice and helpful. The van was however old, beat, and sounded like it was in need of repairs. You would think a bus or transport to the blue lagoon would be of decent condition because it's such... More

We took a Golden Circle day tour and enjoyed it a lot. The driver/guide was funny and intelligent and made the trip interesting. The rates are cheaper than those of the two big bus companies (especially if you book online) and the advantage of the minibus is that your own group doesn't create a big line to the restrooms. We...

Did the Golden Circle afternoon tour. The tour itself was great, with amazing scenery, although it would have been good to have slightly longer at the waterfall and rift valley. Then again, it was the afternoon tour, not the full day version. However, the reason for this review is the behaviour of the driver. As soon as the tour started,... More

I went on the glacier lagoon tour and golden circle afternoon tour with this company. Both tours were very enjoyable. The guides were great and had lots of interesting & funny stories to tell. Transport was done in a minibus and the overall experience was more personal than travelling with a big company. (And bustravel is cheaper too!)
