We booked this tour through IHeartReykjavik based on their glowing recommendations and were not disappointed. Our guide, Hilmar was friendly and incredibly informative. He shared so many interesting things about Iceland and I really felt I knew the country better after our tour. The sights were simply breathtaking and the hot pool at the end was the perfect way to... More

This is a small company that loves their country and loves to show it off. We did two tours with them and had a wonderful time. They know the Island well, they were very personable and professional. This company is the very best way to see Iceland.

No doubt if you're coming to Iceland for the first time, you're going to do the Golden Circle. Hard to pass up Europe's largest waterfall, active geysers, and Thingvellir park. We had lots of choices, and we decided to go with GTI's version of the tour which combines the popular sites with a soak in the Secret Lagoon at the... More

We had a wonderful day with Hilmar as our guide. He was full of information about just about everything we could think to ask! We did the Golden Circle Tour as a private trip (there were 8 of us including several teens). The tour included the hydro plant (which was more interesting than I expected), waterfalls, geysers, a working farm... More

I chose the Hot Golden Circle tour because it was a smaller group, included Thingvellir National Park, geysers, waterfalls and ended with a 'secret lagoon', which was unique, warm and relaxing. Midday we stopped for lunch where we could choose from a varied menu or have the delicious and inexpensive traditional Icelandic lamb soup. The guide was well informed and... More

Went on a tour to Snaefellsnes today and it was amazing. Even though this is a long trip - 10h, it is absolutely worth it and with all the breaks and excitement you get, time flies. The pick up organisation was fast and efficient. Our guide was Baltur and he did a great job! Apparently he enjoyed the tour as... More

Went with Gateway on the Glacier Lagoon tour and very happy I did. I wasn't looking forward to it being such a long day, but our driver Hilmar was amazing and did a great job breaking it up. He is very knowledgable and it was great to hear his stories along the way. It made the time go very fast.... More

Our ship had three stops in Iceland with Reykjavik being our first. Our ship was scheduled to be in Reykjavik for too short a time to be on the normal Golden Circle tour. However, they happily created a custom trip to fit our schedule. Even when the ship was delayed three hours, they were willing, with a day's notice, to... More

Tour guide was hard to understand during tour. Talked constantly and was muffled talking into microphone. Couple only get about every third word he said. Tour guide left without us at pingvellir National Park. Instructions were not clear on meeting point and we were 10 min late. Climbed hill back to information center where national park rep tried calling tour... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about Gateway to Iceland. I'm sorry to see it was a negative one. When on the Hot Golden Circle tour, we visit the Thingvellir National Park. Here you're being dropped off at the viewing platform, where the guide explains the group how you should walk through the park and meet... More
