A huge thank you to our magnificent driver Mikael for the wonderful service he gave as part of our Golden circle tour with Nice Travel.

All the main sites of the Golden Circle tour were visited, but due to our party being much smaller in number than usual due to the current travel restrictions then Mikael was able to allow us longer time to take in their sights and sounds aswell as stop at other locations. Our mini bus was also very comfortable, modern and had free wi-fi.

However, these alone were not the main reasons why our tour was so enjoyable. Throughout the day, Mikael gave great commentary over everything we saw and we learned so much about Icelandic history, culture, geography and modern life. He also always obliged and helped with our own questions and was clearly very passionate about the country. (We also shared a love of Eric Cantona and British football !!)

We highly recommend Nice Travel for anyone wanting to do the Golden Circle Tour and feel that if the level of customer service offered by all drivers is half of that what Mikael provided to ourselves then you are in for a great day.

þakka þér kærlega fyrir Nice Travel and Mikael !!

My adult daughter, wife and myself enjoyed the well organized trip. Our guide for the day David really made this a memorable experience with his insights into the geology, history and culture of Iceland. The weather on the day was very changeable and he allowed everyone to view the sights at their own pace allowing extra time or moving on as the group needed. He advised at each site the best way to get the most from the location including keeping everyone safe. This is the MUST DO tour in Iceland. We thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend Nice Travel and David. He went out of his way for us making extra stops when there was something worth seeing. The Waterfalls, national park, Geysir, Kerid and Icelandic horses are all memorable experiences. As an enthusiastic fisherman I was enthralled by his tails of fishing the rivers and lakes of Iceland and being shown where David caught his first salmon.

To be honest, I don't remember much of my trip around the Golden Circle (I spent a week in Iceland and did a bunch of tours), but I do remember that I had fun! We went to the crater and the lake at the bottom was frozen and snowed over and there were hilarious graffiti written on the ice by clearing away the snow. Someone even cleared away enough to make a slip-and-slide using the ice underneath. It ruined the natural beauty somewhat, but it was way too funny for me to care. 100% worth it.

It has been a lovely day. The beauty of the landscapes was literally stunning and it has been increased by the puntuality, kindness and competence of my guide Einar. By accident I fell off and cut my hand on the lava rock: he drove me to the nearest pharmacy on our way back home, even if the time of the tour was clearly already finished. Truly appreciate the 'small group' system, eay more enjoyable than crowded turistic buses and more 'free to mind your own business' than private tours :) Higly recomended!

We were picked up by Andreas from bus stop 1 on time with a big smile :)
He was very informative about where we were going, explaining all the aspects of each destination. Giving us plenty of time for each stop, We didn’t feel rushed at all. Lots of time for bathroom stops and snacks on the way.
You stop for a lunch break, we took a flask and sandwiches but also tried the lamb soup (delicious)
We even got to stop to see some horses which was a lovely thing to do as it was not in with the trip!
We would have no hesitation booking again with this company. Great trip from start to finish, thank you so much for an amazing day out! Andreas was fab!

Our guide was Christina and she was excellent.
We were picked up on time. It was very cold and we had snowstorms but this added to the enjoyment for us. It was like fairyland!
The snow, which was quite deep in places, did restrict us in places (as in my friend and I) but we are seniors and I have a sore hip. We didn’t mind though.
We wore thermals, crampons and waterproof coats. Warm hats and gloves were essential.
Thingveller national park, interesting info and view of the site of where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates met. Very deep snow and a challenging but splendid walk through it (optional).
The geyser. Bizarre seeing hot springs surrounded by snow and it was snowing heavily when we were there. The Strokkur eruptions were exciting. Lunch was available in any of 3 food outlets. We had soup and bread in Supa. Very reasonable and delicious.
Gulfoss Waterfall. Amazing. Iceland’s Niagara and beautiful. There is a choice to climb up to view it from further above that we declined because of the conditions. We loved it though.
We loved seeing herds of Icelandic horses that stay out in any weather, also the chance to get close to some.
Kerid Crater. Never seen anything like it. There is a lake at the bottom that was frozen when we were there and the opportunity to walk round the rim.
I totally recommend this tour. We would love to go back in the summer to see what was underneath all that snow!
Thank you, Christina.

Great excursion. I liked that the group was small and that we had time at each spot to explore. The driver was very knowledgeable and friendly and funny. I cannot spell his name but it was Max- something sounding. It was a relaxing way to see some beautiful places without driving on your own in the crazy icelandic winter weather (snow, sun, wind, rain, rinse, repeat).

This was an awesome day tour! The drive was not very long and our tour guide was awesome! His name was Ingo. We saw all of the major golden circle stops, as well as Fontana Hot Springs, greenhouses, and a bakery. The bus had wifi, which was wonderful! Everything about the day was fantastic! I highly recommend this day tour during your trip to Iceland!

Had a great day with David our tour guide/minibus driver.
He made it great fun with lots of funny stories, history and tremendous knowledge of Iceland and its history. He made everyone feel at home and part of the day. He clearly loves Iceland and projected that to us all.
