What a great tour of the Golden Circle. Magnus our driver and guide picked us up at the Cruise Terminal right on time & following a full day tour dropped us off on time. It was simply the best! I highly recommend this tour company.

We were there for about 45-60 minutes. You can stand between the plates on a walking path with the plates towering above you on both sides.
