We had the same experience as so many others with David as our guide on this wonderful day tour. It was the perfect combination of organized and efficient, yet leisurely and spontaneous. The weather wasn't the greatest and David rearranged things to make the best of it, which I really appreciated. We had ample time at each stop and learned... More

My brother and I signed up for the Golden Circle Tour with Iceland Horizon and we were not disappointed. The day started off with a morning pick up from our hotel. We spent the next 15-20 minutes picking up other passengers from various hotels and guesthouses around Reykjavik and were off to the Golden Circle by around 9AM. Unlike another... More

What a fantastic tour. Geyser, Gulfloss and Thingvellir all in one day. A small(ish) coach and absolutely brilliant guide really made this a fantastic way to spend a day outside of Reykjavic.

We were so happy to see Iceland outside Reykjavik, and this was the perfect company to go with! They only take small groups, we only had 6 people in ours! I think this was an unusual day to have SUCH a small group, but it was definitely a perk. I can see how some reviewers would have been uncomfortable if... More

Excellent trip. We would highly recommend this. Our guide was really interesting and informative as well as showing us all the beautiful and amazing sights on the golden circle. We even stopped to see some gorgeous icelandic horses - they were so friendly and gentle. A must trip with an excellent tour company which gives u personal service.

We booked this tour with Reykjavik Excursions via the Icelandair website. It was brilliant and a must do if you are in Reykjavik. The scenery is amazing, helped by the lovely sunny weather we had last week. We also had a very good guide. The first stop was at a tomato greenhouse which was a bit strange. I think it... More

Our group of six friends booked Horizon for the Golden Circle tour. We wanted smaller minicoach and group. Our group was around 20 of us. Our guide was Arthur who is a PE teacher and does these tours at weekends and during the summer. He was very knowledgeable and gave us a regular and informative commentary throughout the whole day,... More

We took the Golden Circle Tour with Iceland Horizons, & being a small tour, only 15 of us on Thursday 20th March, it was so much more personal than the big tour companies. Gerta & her husband gave us all the information that we could take in, took us to all the main sites plus two others. We were very... More
