We used Bustravel on our trip to Iceland this past week and everything went very smoothly. They showed up at the airport exactly 30 minutes after we landed. (you walk out of the airport near the bus pickup and go straight along the covered walkway, and they'll pickup on the left side.) It wasn't anything fancy, but it was reliable... More

I found this provider only by chance doing search due to being lazy to remember the bus companies operating from the airport. They should definitely get more customers! Everything worked out exactly as stated on their website and after my private communication. In short, it was basically like a taxi from the airport to the Blue Lagoon (picked me up... More

I was recommended by my hostel to try out this company and I am so glad I did. The pick up was right on time at my hostel, had a small van for the tour and a very funny "tour guide". I did different tours throughout my three weeks in Iceland and I must admit I really enjoyed this day... More

We booked the special offer + Glacier Lagoon package and actually I'm quite happy with the tours. The bus aren't the most modern ones, but they are quite comfortable and in opposite to what other travellers said, it had enough space for passengers and luggage. Of course it was only a mini bus, but there was space for putting some... More

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
