“Excellent day out.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

We were picked up from the hotel (Klettur) at 8.30 in the morning by Flybus and taken to the terminus, where all the coaches departed from. First we stopped at a tomato farm, if you go be sure to try the mug of tomato soup with bread. Next stop was the Gulfoss and visitor centre. The stop for lunch was at the Geysir and hot springs area and visitor centre. last stop was at Pingviller National park, where a short walk took us through the the ancient cliffs of the rift. The courier was very good and talked non-stop! (For about 8 hours quite an achievement).

“Must have the soup in the cafe...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

really worth travelling to see Gullfoss. We saw it as part of the golden circle tour and were not disappointed.
there is a cafe on site and you must try the Icelandic meat soup - it is superb particularly on a cold day.

“Must see when in Iceland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

This is a must see when in Iceland. Especially when the sun shines, you get some excellent scenery with the rainbow. The surroundings are very nice and the Geysir area is just about a 15 minute drive away.
