I booked last minute but I did not regret at all. We were 6 so it was kind of private tour in cosy and comfortable van. We visited a lot of amazing spots. Ian is very polite, patient, knowledgable and informative. He kept talking along the way giving info on the places that we passed by or visited. He also... More

This was excellent from the moment we were picked up from our hotel to when we were dropped back there. The tour was in a small bus, so no big coaches, and the guide chatted all the way, informing us about Iceland geography, culture and heritage. We visited the Secret Lagoon first which is so much better than the more... More

Went on this tour as a solo traveller. I liked the small bus/group size (we were only 10 people) making it a nice way to meet new people. The late start time was nice (especially considering the sun doesn't rise until 10am!). Our guide was okay - he was difficult to understand and he made more jokes than information about... More

Like others, I checked out TA reviews before choosing Gateway to Iceland for two tours (Glacier Lagoon and Hot Golden Circle). Both were outstanding. It's interesting that reviews all note that their guide was excellent and so were ours (Benedikt and Andres F.), although not mentioned by others - my conclusion is that Gateway has an incredible group of guides......

Firstly, I went to Iceland on a site visit tour for our company and am reviewing multiple tour operators. I was highly impressed with the knowledge of our tour guide. He was personable and provided us with the most information I have received on a tour while I was in Iceland. He provided anecdotes, historical information, and an explanation of... More

Brilliant guide Stephen. Well worth going on the tour including the secret lagoon. Amazing experience swimming in the warm pool with snow falling around.

My friends and I did the Hot Golden Circle tour with Bjorn and it was AMAZING! This company and guide are outstanding. We had a tour with a different tour company and it was terrible compared to this experience. I would highly recommend this company to anyone going to Iceland. Wonderful experience and wonderful guide!!

Thank you so much for your review! We'll make sure Ian knows how happy you were with him. Our vision is to have our tours small specifically to make it more personal as we think that adds to the experience. Unfortunately, we can't control mother nature but we're happy to hear you did get a glimpse of the Northern Lights.... More

We did the Hot Golden Circle Tour with Gateway Tours, Iceland and had a wonderful day with our guide Bjorn. He was excellent and his commentary was interesting throughout with lots of entertaining stories, facts and information on Icelandic history, culture etc. He did a few extra stops which were lovely treats and the highlight at the end of the...
