Owner description: Operating only a few select daily scheduled tours which are always in small groups, Iceland Horizon is a small, family run tour operation with no intention of becoming a large bus company. Our philosophy has always been that you are travelling on a guided tour and the bus is just a means of transport, keeping the experience more personal, friendly and fun for both travellers and guides. We also arrange tours for groups wanting a private or individual arrangement.

“If you only have one day in Iceland . . .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

Take the Golden Circle tour. Our guide, David, was very knowledgeable, especially with regard to the geology and economics of Iceland. I will never forget the waterfalls and geysers and Thingvellir.

“Spectacular!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

This was an excellent small-group tour. Our guide/driver Jonsi did a great job narrating what we were seeing with humor and knowledge, made a stop so we could drink pure glacier water from a stream, took us to all the usual Golden Circle sights (Thingvellir, Gullfoss, Stokkur) and made sure to give us plenty of time at each stop to marvel at Iceland's wonders. Would definitely book a tour through them again.

“Really great tours!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

We traveled to Iceland in June 2013 and booked two tours with Iceland Horizon -- the Golden Circle tour (GC), and the Snaefellsness Peninsula tour (SP). David, the owner, was our guide on the Golden Circle, and he was excellent -- very knowledgeable and friendly. I'm soooo glad we booked with a small tour bus for the GC, because he'd often take detours and make extra stops along the way, which I'm sure would never happen in a large coach. We had a different guide on the SP tour, a lovely lady named Gerta. It was somewhat rainy and foggy when we first got underway, and Gerta felt so bad that she made a bunch of extra photo-op stops to make it up to us! We had a great time with Iceland Horizon, and recommend them without hesitation.

“Not to be missed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

The tour and guide (we had Dave, but apparently they can't allow you to choose) were both excellent, and this company is cheaper than most! The tour group was about 15-16 people, which is smaller than the big groups. This is a big advantage because it can mean shorter toilet lines and time for extra little stops, plus it's easier to get everyone back on to move along to the next amazing sight.

I will recommend this tour and company to everyone I talk to about Iceland!

“Great tour in small group”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

We were actually "sold" to this tour from another tour company. After some initial confusion at the unanticipated pick-up, we were glad to be traded. Our guide, David, who is also the owner gave us a wonderful overview of the island and it's culture and even it's economy. We had stops which were just right for seeing the sights and eating/shopping/visiting the WC. We even stopped to pet the horses! Overall a great day.
