We went with Rekjavik Excursions and thoroughly enjoyed the visit but, as others have said, felt we were a little rushed and would have liked to have stayed longer in the greenhouse and geysirs in particular. It is very interesting to see and learn about how the family-run Fridheimar green house is heated by geothermal water, see the bees they release inside every few weeks and enjoy the excellent tomato soup. The family have horses which our 4 year old enjoyed seeing. We would have liked to have stayed longer and had a full lunch there since the tomato-based menu looked intriguing. We were blessed with 22 degree C sunshine so saw Gulfoss waterfalls in all their glory but the visitor centre & large shopping area was busy and we needed longer to queue for the cafe and enjoy our lunch. The geysirs didn't disappoint and we saw them shoot into the air every few minutes, and Pingvellir was very atmospheric. Walking along the Almanaggja fault where Europe and North America are separating at about 18mm a year was very atmospheric and like nothing else you will ever do. All too soon the trip was over and we had to be back at the coach at 4pm. Our guide worked very hard and was informative and amusing, dealing well with a difficult customer who complained he was too hot and couldn't hear properly (why do the hard of hearing never sit at the front?)

The Trip was great. Easy to book, pick up locations straight forward. Plenty of time at each of the destinations on the your. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful, the driver was great in very testing winter driving conditions.

This was not my favorite Iceland tour, but it was a very enjoyable one. Highly recommend that everyone consider it (weather will affect the experience, of course, but on the day I did the tour the weather cooperated). Tour was well paced with sufficient bathroom breaks; all sites worth seeing (especially geyser and Gullfoss); and guide was great (dry sense of junior). Pick up and transportation back to hotel area also worked out quite well. An added plus was that bus wireless was reliable. Hint: make sure you have good walking shoes that can get dirty and waterproof pants might be worth buying depending upon the season that you do this tour.

Boarded a bus at our designated pickup. Large letters across bus entitled Reykjavik Excursions. Got on bus, 15 mins later bus departs for a 10 drive and stops near a hockey arena in Reykjavik where everyone apparently exits to a private event. Ask driver what was happening. Says we are in the wrong bus. But how is this possible? Another individual who appears quite flustered gets on the bus and says we must exit the bus immediately as they are on a tight schedule. I along with four of my friends ask where do we go for the tour. Individual says he doesn’t care and tries to push me physically off the bus. I am shocked by his aggressiveness. We exit bus and another bus pulls up. We explain our predicament and he radios Reykjavik Excursions. A Sprinter bus shows up 10mins later and transfers us to the large bus several miles outside of Reykjavik. Tour went smooth after that.
Solution: check people as they board the bus to ensure they are on the correct bus. That other individual who got on the bus to physically remove me is in the wrong industry. Should work as a prison guard

We loved the trip from seeing the sights to hearing our guide giving informative talks along the route. A relaxed day out where there was no rush and plenty of time to see the sights at each stop. Able to get food on the way so no need for a packed lunch. Clean comfortable coaches. Recommend using this company for any tours you may wish to take.

We had a great time on this tour - I'm not a huge fan of being ushered around with large groups but this was the best tour we found of the Golden Circle and it was great to visit the greenhouse on top of this and have the opportunity to try the fresh tomato soup which was very tasty! The sights were great, in particular I loved the walk through Thingvellir National Park in the snow which was so different from anything I've ever experienced! The bus was comfortable and had USB charging ports which was really useful, pick up was prompt and our guide was very nice. A downside was being unable to eat on the bus. We had brought food with us to save money and had to eat it outside in the cold. Sometimes having a time limit at these great spots is a bit disappointing but we didn't feel too rushed and really enjoyed seeing the Golden Circle. I'd definitely commend the driver's skill too as we were driving back in a blizzard! I felt in some of the stops we could have done with crampons as there was thick ice on the paths at the Geysirs and the waterfall and not everything was gritted (myself and some others did stray from the path at the geysirs so fair play that was our fault) but even the normal paths were extremely icy. Bring your own crampons I'd say! There are also plenty of opportunities to use the toilet on the tour which can sometimes make me anxious otherwise so this was good. Sometimes it felt a bit over-structured but I know that's just the nature of larger tours. Overall we had a great time, and if you're looking for an affordable way to do the Golden Circle this was a really good bus tour!

A truly fantastic day! As expected the sights were awesome. The tour guide we had organised the day perfectly in terms of timings and he was extremely knowledgeable and informative. I would recommend the Golden Circle tour with the Fridheimar Greenhouse visit and do try some of the tomato products.

Booked the 8 hour day trip which included four stops. Local shuttle pick up worked fine as was a fine day but with a 30 time slot prior to 09:00 departure from bus terminus so if weather poor wrap up well. Duration at stops enroute other than Gullfoss were fine, which was too short to visit both viewpoints. Disappointing as dropped off back in Reykjavik well before 17:00.

Best if take own food, as stops tight on time to both enjoy the sights and order / consume a meal.

Our tour guide was okay in providing bits of information whilst driving but nothing when at destinations. Gleaned more by eaves dropping on other tour groups who interestly contracted to same company.

This is the classic tour of Icelandic sights within a day tour from Reykjavik, with the unusual addition of a tomato greenhouse. The Gullfoss waterfall was most impressive, even after I had seen several others in Iceland. Þingvellir had strong historical resonance and although the geyser at Geysir was not the most impressive in the world, it was the area from which all other geysers take their name. All these sites had gift shops and cafes, they are definitely part of the standard tourist circuit. As for the geothermally heated greenhouse, and its use of boxes of bees, well, it was a bit different. It was the guide who made the trip above average for me, for example telling me that the famous Blue Lagoon was a failed means of disposing of the waste water from the nearby power station was one of those facts that do not make the glossy brochures.

future generations will look at the effort to turn greenhouses green, few places in the world can do this and iceland should continue their efforts . Green Hydrogen can be made for european consumption without producing any hydrocarbons. tomatoes is actually quite complicated to achieve
