Great Choice
We visited Iceland as a stop on a cruise and I had booked this tour for our party of 6.
We were picked up at the cruise terminal gate by our driver/guide for the day, Denis.The transport was a Volkswagen multivan and was just right for us. I am no longer nimble but Denis gave me a hand when needed.
We had a wonderful day enjoying a little of this beautiful country. Denis was very informative and passionate about his home. We had a number of stops and great photo opportunities. We also stopped at a tomato greenhouse restaurant and had a delicious lunch. We added The Secret Lagoon to our tour as an extra. The time passed too quickly but the day has given us fantastic memories.
Sergei, who runs the company answered my questions pre-visit promptly and the booking process was simple.

Truly wonderful tour
Feb 2020 • Family
We had a brilliant tour with Sergei yesterday. He was waiting for us outside our apartment at 9am and dropped us back at 5.30pm. The minibus was clean and the roads good. I am a bad traveller( travel sickness) and didn’t feel ill at any point- a huge bonus. The sights were spectacular, the landscape like nothing I’ve seen before and Sergei at all times informative and helpful. Yes you do some of the same sights as the big buses but we were never rushed and felt the tour was personalised to us as a family. Sergei was knowledgable and entertaining. Truly loved our tour- think it’s the best thing I’ve ever booked. Well worth the money. From my mum in her 70s to our teenage kids all would rate tour as 5 star!!

"Awesome experience. wonderful guides"
Jul 2019
Denis and Maria were our guides. They picked us up at the airport and our tour began immediately. They were both so friendly, knowledgeable and fun. By the end of the day, we felt as though we were real friends. We are an active mid 70's couple traveling with our grown son. All three of us enjoyed everything about this tour. They even showed us some hidden treasures that most tourists do not get to see. They are absolutely the greatest.

Amazing Golden Circle Tour and New Friend
Apr 2019 • Friends
We booked a private small bus tour with Sergei for a group of 6 to do the Golden Circle. Sergei was our guide and driver and we had such a great time. He was very informative and really knew the landscape, the history and culture. He also was a kind and considerate person. One of our group was limited physically and would not be able to hike for long distances. Sergei was always thinking of ways for her to get the best experience and would stay with her or drive her to meeting points with the rest of the group walking. He also made extra stops and was always willing to answer any questions, even with humor. He even shared some of his photos with us. Loved it all. Would highly recommend Top Iceland and Sergei. In fact we met up with him for additional services over the course of our stay because we felt safe and comfortable with our new friend and with our time together.

Trip of a lifetime
Denis was an AMAZING tour guide and we left calling him a friend. He went out of his way to show us all of the best parts of Iceland. He was able to dodge the crowds and knew exactly when to take us to each stop. He showed us many hidden gems such as hot springs, one of a kind restaurants, and waterfalls that were not part of the tour. He was a wealth of knowledge about all the sights and went out of his way to make sure we left with amazing photos and memories. I will recommend this company to all my family and friends planning a trip to Iceland. Truly a one of a kind experience. Denis was even able to schedule us for a second tour of the southern coast. I cannot say enough of what an amazing experience he made it. When you make it to the USA we will be sure to return the favor.

Perfect day trip from Reykjavik
Sep 2018 • Friends
We took a private tour (8 people in a minibus) with Sergei from Top Iceland. We only had a short weekend in Reykjavik and this was the perfect way to easily see the sights outside the city. We visited some beautiful views on the Golden Circle and enjoyed Sergei's great knowledge on everything we saw. It was a really special experience and the day had some very special touches. Highly recommend!

An incredible day!!!
Aug 2018 • Family
Our family of four (with two boys, 12 & 6) booked a private Golden Circle tour with Sergei and had an incredible day! He picked us up at the port and we spent the next 7 hours seeing some of the most amazing sights we've ever seen. He was even able to accommodate our travel times, as our cruise ship didn't dock until 12:30pm. He took us on backroads that bus excursions wouldn't have gone on, and stopped and walked in amazingly beautiful lava fields, and explained about the geothermal power facilities. We then went to Thingvellir National Park and explained all of the history and geology with detail. Next up was Geysir Hot Springs area, and knew exactly where to stand to get the best views (and not get too wet when Strokkur went off). We drove to Gulfoss Waterfall, but he made a quick side trip to this little farm that had some delicious ice cream! (great for the kids!) He always made sure we were comfortable in the car, gave us time to walk amongst the sights just the 4 of us, to soak it all in, and got some great photos of our family. Memories we will treasure forever! We got so lucky with weather, and rainbows followed us every where we went!! He then took us to a "secret" waterfall, next to a salmon run, that we could stand right beneath and reach out and touch. It was a truly wonderful day. Sergei is so knowledgeable, thoughtful, willing to switch up the itinerary depending on your needs, and was a pleasure to spend the day with. Thanks so much, Sergei!

Made our holiday, awe inspiring!
Aug 2018 • Family
Sergei picked our group up straight from the cruise ship and was happy to accommodate our unusual sailing times. The scenery was dramatic, beautiful and intimidating all at once. Sergei explained the history, geology and culture in faultless English and kept the audience (ranging from 11 years old to over 70 years) audience fascinated for over 6 hours. Thank you for instilling your enthusiasm for your home in us, it made our holiday.

Spectacular Sights and Amazing Commentary!
Jul 2018 • Family
Our family of four took two private day tours with Sergei - one to the Golden Circle and the second to the Southern Coast. Loved these tours!! Sergei hit all the high spots as well as several hidden gems. He picked us up at our hotel right on time and provided a roomy luxury vehicle where we could spread out and relax while he pointed out and described all the sights. Sergei is an encyclopedia of information on Iceland and I am convinced he knows about every square inch of the country. The facts and color he provided were fascinating and truly enhanced the experience. He was entertaining and accommodating. I HIGHLY recommend Sergei and Top Iceland Tours. AWESOME!!
