We got the Grand Golden Circle and the Southern Iceland Tour. The minibuses they used were quite old but they're one of the cheaper options out there. The Golden Circle tour was nothing really special. But the Southern Iceland Tour guide, Omar, was actually very informative and entertaining. He cracked some jokes and even commented on some Icelandic social issues... More

We booked the special offer package which included Airport transfers (return to airport via the blue lagoon) and a golden circle day tour. The transfers were well organised and punctual, and the golden circle tour was fantastic. The tour was on a small bus (15 people) which was ideal as it had a more personal touch instead of 'coach trip'... More

An excellent experience. I booked this trip direct via the internet following recommendation and we were delighted that the trip was by minibus with just 6 guests. The driver/guide was very knowledgeable and clearly knew the ideal route to take in all the attractions whilst avoiding the masses on coaches. We had the right balance of stops throughout the day.

I booked airport transfer, Blue Lagoon Shuttle and Grand Circle Tour. The airport and the Blue Lagoon transfers were OK, they arrived at the time they promised, but I expected an enthusiastic guide for the Grand Circle Tour, and I was disappointed. During the ride, the driver told us some info about Iceland but when we arrived at the attraction... More

It is definitely recommended to travel with this tour company. If you book online through the websites, it is much cheaper than other competitors. The mini buses are old, but still ok enough. They pick us up approx. 10-15 minutes after departure times. If you are not sure they are coming or not, just call. The drivers/tour guides, in my... More

We did the Golden Circle afternoon tour with Bustravel and we had a thoroughly good time. We were picked up on time from our apartment in a minibus and a had a very smooth drive to our first stop at Geysir. I loved it here, Strokkur was very lively and I could have stayed here mesmerized for hours. We then... More

I love everything about this company. Right from the start I harassed them with emailed questions about my changing travel plans before booking and the responses were always speedy (sometimes instantaneous) and informative. Airport Pickup: Found the van in the location described on their website. Yes it was a bit old but it was comfortable and warm and got us... More

I've used this company for all my tours and airport transfers on both of my trips to Iceland (staying in Reykjavik & Hafnarfjordur) and they are amazing. I first booked with them in November 2014 after searching loads of tour companies and discovering that they did everything I wanted to do and at very competitive prices (I'm a cheapskate &... More

I had a very negative experience with the tour company. I cannot rate the service, as services were never fulfilled. I will preface this to explain that we are partially culpable. We were 10 minutes late for our scheduled pickup to Blue Lagoon, because our other tour was late. We attempted to contact the company to let them know we... More
