My wife and I took the "Hot Golden Circle Tour" [the Golden Circle with a final stop at the Secret Lagoon for an hour's swim] on a beautiful October day. We were picked up right on time at our hotel, with our tour guide Bjorn driving the minivan. Only fourteen of us on the tour. Bjorn outlined the day's events... More

We did the Hot Golden Circle tour today. We were picked up promptly at our hotel and even with terrible weather we had a great time. The three sites were all beautiful and the tour guide, Andre, did a good job driving safely in the windy, rainy weather. The stop at the Secret Lagoon was a good way to end... More

This was a great all day tour from Reykjavik. It was in a minibus so there were only about 18 people. We went to all the major sites on the Golden Circle tour plus the Secret Lagoon hot spring which was wonderful. It was not crowded and a very nice facility. Our guide was terrific. I highly recommend this tour.

We booked the Golden Circle and South Shore excursions with Gateway online and they were excellent. A small van of 15 people arrived on time both days. The bus driver was also your guide, he tells you the history, and points out happenings along the way. Good timing at intervals to stretch your legs, take a bathroom break and take... More

We booked 3 tours with Gateway to Iceland, and enjoyed them all. We first went on a Northern Lights Tour, and were lucky enough to see a great show! Our tour guide even offered tips for photographing the lights. Don't forget your tripod. If you go to Iceland during Northern Lights season and don't even try to see them, you... More

But well worth it seeing the waterfall and Swiming in secret logon in the rain and cold winds was certainly... More

Our Experience with GTI was AMAZING! We had Tord...or Torud. He was so warm and friendly, an amazing story teller and also gave us rich tidbits of Icelandic history. I felt as if I was riding with an old friend rather than a tour bus company. I would recommend GTI Small group tours to everyone, especially if it's with Tord!... More

My friends and I really enjoyed our tour with Gateway. Fun and flexible tour guide, smaller group, and helpful context provided by the guide at each stop!

We choose GTI as it fitted in with our stay. There were only 7 of us on this tour, mini bus was ok apart from the constant squeaking/rattling noise which after a while became very irritating. Amazing scenery you can't fail to be amazed. The glacier lagoon is awesome. It's a long day take snacks with you as some of... More
