Andreas A has a unique skill entertaining his guests. While driving a bus (which for me is sort of superhuman. I tend to freak out whenever I need to drive anything bigger than a regular car). While they are all sitting behind him (any entertainer's nightmare). While still loading them with information about the country he loves. Even though I'm... More

At least I think that's how his name is spelled - big friendly guy with a penchant for singing on the bus and a great sense of humor and pocketful of jokes! He made the tour so much more fun, to be honest. We had wonderful weather that day (in a week of rain, but what's new in Iceland!) and... More

Today we have been for our trip to the Golden Circle and it has been a fabulous day. Travelling with a two year old we thought the trip may be arduous but it was great. The bus was punctual, our tour guide Stefan was eloquent, informative, friendly and an equally good opera singer (we found!) The trip took in the... More

This was a fantastic trip, the driver was incredible, very knowledgeable and engaging. The lagoon was a highlight, as was the unique commentary. Definitely book with these guys over the bigger companies any day of the week. Thank you for such a great experience that my mother and I will never forget.

I went on the Hot Golden Circle and South Shore Adventure tours on a recent trip to Iceland. Both tours were excellently run. The guides were personable, funny and informative, and went out of their way to get to know their passengers and personalise the tour in any way they could. The Hot Golden Circle tour hit all of the... More

If you want to see the northern lights, I would highly recommend going with Gateway to Iceland rather than one of the bigger tour companies. Our guide, Bob, was friendly and informative. The company clearly puts a lot of thought into the tour, and they know what they're doing to give you the best chance possible of seeing the northern... More

We opted for the Hot Golden Circle tour (Golden circle + pool visit) and were pleased to see that this was being operated on New Years Day (a day when many things are typically closed in Iceland). The journey lasted approximately 8 hours and we got to see a glimpse the natural beauty of Iceland. We were picked up on... More

We went on the Snaefellsnes peninsula tour with Stefan the other day and it was everything I could have wanted from a guided tour. The locations were stunning (he even made an extra stop so we could capture some beautiful scenery as the sun rose), the bus was nice and warm (which was definitely needed), and Stefan was a fantastic...

We had the most incredible evening hunting for the lights. We were lucky enough to see them in a few different spots and it was totally magical. Being a private tour meant we could get off the beaten track and have a really peaceful experience. Ian was the perfect host: his info about Iceland and stories matched with the hot... More

What a stupendous tour!!?!! Picked up at the front door by Santa bearing a gift bag of goodies, then whisked away to a deliciously hot, hot pot. Afterwards, a marvellous buffet lunch... Which was very much a necessity, that hot water seeps the energy out of a person. Lots of trivia and info about Iceland provided by Santa on the... More
