We spent the day being looked after by Jens on a golden circle tour finishing at the blue lagoon. We were a group of 4.
Jens took excellent care of us and gave a good amount of information and had answers whenever needed. He was very patient and flexible and I would recommend his services to anyone. A small private group is a much much better way to see the sights than on a big bus- don't be a sheep! If there are 8 of you it works out the same price anyway i believe.
Many thanks to Jens

Definitely look up Jens and FunTravel when in Iceland. He exhibited nothing but patience and professionalism with our group - which was a feat I likened to herding squirrels. Very knowledgeable and accommodating - to the point of organizing extra buses with another company when our numbers grew. Also, turned out to be a very inexpensive option when we filled the bus of 16. (about half the price of the larger coaches!) I would absolutely use Jens and FunTravel again.

The tour of the Parliament where the America and European plates unite, the crater, the fumaroles, Icelandic coastline and country side was a big hit.

Our guide Orvar was FANTASTIC! He was very entertaining the whole trip with stories, history, facts…. More facts and the grand finale…. serenading us with a children’s lullaby and his grand voice!

Orvar planned quick rest stops that had snacks, and sandwiches available. Some brought along a lunch, both allowed us to see as much as possible rather than spending time at a sit down lunch.

The Blue Lagoon was wonderful, allowing us just enough time to get a beer as we got there before the pool bar closed to swimming for a while then shower and on our way.

The brief tour of the city was enough for most. Some would have liked a quick stop to shop but the stores were closed. In the future a stop would allow more time in town to wander around when the stores were open.

There is so much to see and do, in a wide spread area.... time does not always allow for everything. Just need to return to see the rest!

I highly recommend this tour exactly as we did it as an alternative to the traditional Golden Circle. We will return again one day, and hopefully see the waterfalls and geyser. We have been fortunate to see many geysers and waterfalls… but the Blue Lagoon is unique to Iceland.. the one and only!!!!

Jens was quick to respond to every email, any question… no matter how big or small. This is very important to the comfort factor that tourists/cruisers have with private tours.

The buses were comfortable with enough space for everyone and bags we were carrying.

I would highly recommend a Fun Travel tour to anyone visiting Reykjavik.

While on the Emerald Princess transatlantic cruise I arranged the Golden Circle and City tour with Jens at Funtravel. What started out as a small group grew to 67 people which were accomodated on 4 small buses. The tour was very enjoyable and Jens arranged to get to most places when there were not a lot of Cruise Ship buses, so we were able to enjoy the sights without fighting crowds. I would highly recommend this company and will use them again if I get back to Iceland. We did have opportunites to use restrooms on a regular basis and also had several opportunities to get refreshments. Jens was quick to respond to inquiries and accomodated the many changes I made in group sizes.

I had arranged for 3 busses with 16 persons per bus for the Golden circle trip while we were in port from my cruise.
Fun travel (Jens) was terrific to deal with. Very easy to email and on the day of the tour showed up right on time.
His tour was the best. We started with a short tour of Reykjavik and then headed out to Þingvellir, the geyser, hot spring and to Gullfoss, the Waterfall. Jens gave us a choice for lunch, wether we wanted to eat at the geyser, which would be cheaper, but where they serve more fast-food kind of food or at the waterfall where they have the traditional lamb stew but where it would be more expensive. We choose the waterfall and lunch was terrific. We had the lamb stew and it was delicious.
On the way back to Reykjavik we stopped along side of the road where Jens called over bunch of the wild horses. They were all very friendly and came right up to us and gave nuzzles . From there we stopped at the volcanic crater Kerid and at a local bakery.
Overall this tour was the highlight of my whole cruise. The beauty of Iceland is beyond words. After the tour Jens dropped us off right at the ship. His tour took the entire 8 hours and was well worth the every penny.
