“Golden Circle Tour”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

The holiday we booked was called the Northern Lights holiday, with the Northern Lights tour expected to be the highlight. As it turned out, the Golden Circle Tour with Reykjavik Excursions turned out to be the highlight of the trip.

It had been snowing the day before, so when we were driving out to see the attractions, the snowscape was magnificent with the fresh fallen snow, and a bright blue sky. We were surprised that the bus was able to drive in the conditions, but the driver didn't bat an eyelid and was obviously used to driving on snow. We soon found out why there are yellow posts on each side of the road - it was the only way you could tell where the road was.

We stopped at a viewing area at just the right time and were lucky to see a beautiful sunrise (at about 10.00am). Got some good photos.

We visited Gullfoss waterfall which was quite spectacular, and then carried on to see the Geysir which spouts every 7 minutes or so. The hot springs on the same site enable you to bathe in the very warm outside pools.

Inevitably on these trips, there were always the shops that were situated at each stop, but that did not detract from the enjoyment of the trip.

It is a full day trip, being picked up at circa 9.00am and returning about 6.00pm. There are stops for lunch and refreshments.

Really enjoyed the day out and would recommend it as a 'must do'

“Outstanding Company!!”
Reviewed February 25, 2014 via mobile

We had a tour booked with them in our package holiday from Iceland Air. We also booked a tour with them through our hotel lobby which was really easy to do. The buses picked you up from your hotel and took you to the main terminal where you would sometimes transfer to another coach for your destination. All the buses were on time and the travel times given always fully took into account other hotel drop offs and pick ups. We had to cancel one of the tours 10 minutes before pick up one night and it wasnt a problem they just let us go the next night and the staff were really nice about it. The guides were informative and funny making the tours really enjoyable. We also used them for our hotel transfer. We bought the tickets onced landed at the airport and hopped straight on a bus. We'll be using them again next time without a doubt. Also free WIFI on every bus and coach!

“Highly Recommended!”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

I took Reykjavik Excursions for two tours in Iceland, the Northern Lights and the Golden Circle with Fontana Wellness. Both tours were brilliant. The guides were great, the Northern Lights guide took us all round searching for the lights until we found them. Success the very first time!

The Golden Circle tour was wonderful, the guide gave us lots of good information regarding Reykjavik and Iceland in general. Simply wonderful!

“Amazing ”
Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

Amazing thank you for making a great holiday an amazing holiday. Saw the Northern lights, the Golden circle trip was brilliant, literally being blown of our feet but laughed so much. Very interesting as well. Then topped it of with a trip to the blue lagoon. (Make sure you condition your hair really well before you get in the water)

“Amazing Iceland”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

We booked 3 tours with Reykjavik excursions (the blue lagoon, the golden circle with skidooing and the northern lights). Each time the coach arrived exactly on time, the drivers were friendly and helpful and the guides knowledgeable and enthusiastic (particularly Marta on the northern lights tour - 22.02.14)

We also booked the flybus which again ran exactly to schedule.

I cannot recommend Reykjavik Excursions highly enough, they added to the magic of our holiday in Iceland

Go on - book!!!!
