Owner description: Operating only a few select daily scheduled tours which are always in small groups, Iceland Horizon is a small, family run tour operation with no intention of becoming a large bus company. Our philosophy has always been that you are travelling on a guided tour and the bus is just a means of transport, keeping the experience more personal, friendly and fun for both travellers and guides. We also arrange tours for groups wanting a private or individual arrangement.

This was our second trip with Iceland Horizon, and first time with David the owner (our previous guide had been excellent). We were on the Golden Circle tour and were given lots of info by an obviously knowledgeable and enthusiastic person about the spots we were visiting (he's lived on the island for 13 years): and we had lots of extra tidbits about life in Iceland as well. I will be returning to Iceland and will hopefully have time to go on one of his more specialised natural history day trips.

Thanks in part to our tour guide David. Not only was he was a joy to listen to and have as our guide but also provided us with some very interesting facts and information about Iceland in general. Gave us also plenty of opportunity to explore each of the stops on the tour.
And the places we visited on the tour were just amazing.
A definite recommendation.

I did the Golden Circle with Iceland Horizon back in 2009 with David. This time around (February 2013) I was a little disappointed not to have David because he was so great. However, our guide Jon ended up being fantastic. He had a nice balance of talking during the ride and just letting you enjoy the landscape. I appreciate the smaller group of about 15 since you don't spend most of your time waiting for an entire coach bus of people and can instead spend more time enjoying the scenery. My only suggestion would be to have more time for lunch at Gulfoss- we had about 45 minutes to see the falls, eat, go to the bathroom, and get back to the van.

Be prepared to do a bit of walking.
