We booked our trip through one of the tourist centers in Reykjavik and are so glad we did. Our tour guide, Stefan, totally made the day. We did one with another company the day before and couldn't believe the difference. Stefan's voice is like a lullaby; think Icelandic version of Morgan Freeman. Many people commented that they want him to... More

We booked the Hoy Golden Circle Tour with Gateway To Iceland via the iheartreykjavik website. Our tour driver Gummy ( pronounced Goomee) was very knowledgeable and made sure that we got the most out if our experience by stopping at unplanned sites like the Faxi waterfall. Swimming in the Secret Lagoon was lovely and a great way to unwind after... More

I booked this tour via Tripadvisor/Viator and realising the Blue Lagoon was fully booked and our only option was to visit the secret lagoon. This tour combines the golden circle tour (which everyone offers) with a visit to secret lagoon at the end of the day. The main advantage you have is that GTI use a mini bus and get... More

Book book book! Don't visit without booking as this was the best thing we did. Our tour guide ( sorry I can't remember his name but he was Scottish) was amazing and I'm sure could beAt most Icelanders on any quiz about their country! The scenery was stunning and I can't imagine how anyone could take a trip to the... More

Another great day out, this time with Gateway to Iceland in a minibus (collected and dropped off at hotel). We did the Hot Golden Circle Tour, visiting the Þingvellir National Park (seat of the first Iceland Parliament, and the site of the rift valley, where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart. Beautiful scenery. From here we... More

We did the Hot Golden circle tour with the voice of God ... Stefan. It was an amazing tour. My favourite part of... More

We did a Northern Lights tour with GtI and it was great! Our guide was a super nice guy and was willing to drive around all night if we had to in order to see the Lights! He is originally from Scotland but has incredible knowledge about Iceland history, culture and folklore. We succeeded in seeing the Lights after about... More

Advertised as 9-10 hours, but ours with pick up and drop off was more like 12. This was an amazing full day tour and the driver was so knowledgeable. Tremendous value.

Went on a Northern Lights tour last night with this company. The driver (didn't catch his name) was very disorganised, didn't seem to know who he was supposed to be picking up and it took forever. The driver spent quite a lot of time using his mobile phone whilst driving which was obviously very dangerous. The rest of the time... More

Dear Delia Thank you for your feedback about your Northern Lights Tour on that night, and we officially apologize for your poor experience with us. Even though the guide you had, is a certified driver/guide, he was only a substitute for us that night and does not normally work for us (we got into an urgent situation to find a... More
