We went on the Golden Circle Bike Tour in late August 2012 as part of our honeymoon. Of all the activities we participated in while in Iceland, this was by far our favorite. Stefan, our guide, easily handled our large group. He did an excellent job informing us about the various locations we traveled to, and even kept things interesting between the major sites.

The riding portions of the trip were very easy for us. Our group had a wide range of ages and skill levels, and Stefan waited at several points along the ride in case any one was having trouble. Mostly downhill, the total distance was split in to two separate rides. This allows you to be relaxed about the ride and just take in the amazing scenery. It is easy to stop and take pictures and not worry about falling behind.

The bikes were all pretty new and in very good condition; they are mostly Trek mountain bikes. The provided bike helmets were also very clean, in case people worry about such things.

During the rest of our time in Iceland, we kept commenting that each tour we were on would have been better with Stefan. If we had known this in advance, we probably would have started our trip with their bike tour around Reykjavik, just so we could have learned about the city from great guides.

This family owned tour company is a highlight of my visit to Reykjavik. Ursala, one of the owners was our guide ans was very knowledgeable guide and answered every question.

The tour itself covers much of the Central area of Reykjavik and is an easy paced ride. Frequent stops with interesting commentary at each stop made it a very enjoyable 2.5 hours.

The bikes are in great shape and comfortable. All of the ones on our trip were Trek 21 speed versions.

I highly recommend this tour as a great way to see Reykjavik.

This was a fun way to spend a couple of hours. We had to do a private tour (due to timing) and we got to see some of the city sites, the University and a bit of the coast. It was paced well and not strenuous. Our guide was very friendly and funny. She even did an extra unplanned stop for us at the end as we wanted to see the sun voyager statue. I would recommend doing this tour - especially on your first day in town.

This is a very informative tour of Reykavik, where you just happen to use bikes. Ursula fills you in on everything from ancient history to the recent economic problems, and modern Icelandic culture. Perhaps because she is German (married to an Icelander and living in Icelandnow for many years), she knows what tourists will find particulairy interesting or surprising. My 15 year old son enjoyed it as much as I did. The bikes are comfortable and the tour is not strenuous. It's a great value and I highly recommend it to any first time visitor to reykavik
