We booked the golden circle tour with these guys. Our guide Johan was ace. Funny. And had some good anecdotes. Not like the bigger companies in the area that are sterile and corporate. We enjoyed so much its a shame we missed the south coast trip. My advice is use these rather than the big companies in the area.

We booked the Golden Circle Tour through Icland Guided Tours, and were impressed with every aspect of this well organised and knowledgable tour.

Our tou Guide Odin was incredibly knowledgable and was happy to answer any question raised. The tour was really well organised and adaptable to try and avoid the 70+ coach load of other tourists who had gone with Reykjavik Excursions. Our group was 20 people on a minibus and this was explained as a big group. Saying that every piece of the commentary was heard and the group developed to give a really nice atmosphere.

The additional stops were also excellent as were section of the country that you would not know about and were not even included within any of our guide books.

The scenery through the tour was fantastic and Iceland guided Tours made that whole day incredible.

Whilst we were at Gulfoss one of our party got injured and Odin was nothing but perfect with the situation. Not only did he adminster first aid, but when the person was unable to leave the minibus at the geysirs, Odin thoughtfully positioned the coach with a perfect view of the geysir to ensure no-one missed out. It was thoughtful touches such as this that show the care.

Also the tour did not stop at the Geothermal Tomato plant, which i for one, was incredible pleased about. So often on organised tour you have to take in these commercial aspects. With Iceland Guided Tours you dont which means you get more time to see the natural beauty of the country.

No-oe can go to Iceland without doing the golden Circle TOur and i would recommend that they use no other company than Iceland Guided tours. As a result we booked a further excursion with them and wished we had used them for everything

Iceland has been on my 'bucket list' for a long time, and I really never thought I'd get to see it, but a short city break offer on the internet gave me the chance. I was determined to make the most of it, so took a couple of tours (plus one included in the break price). I booked the Gulfoss Geysir tour (operated by Reyjavik Excursions) via the hotel. You are picked up from your hotel, and then the experience begins! A really good driver plus a guide who seemed to be a cross between Stephen Fry and a 1970's DJ! Fantastic knowledge on the history of iceland as well as historic pop music! Very entertaining, never boring, an excellent Ambassador for Iceland. The incredible image of Gulfoss will stay in my mind for ever, and the 'explosive' Geysir will always intrigue me. Definitely 10 out of 10 for the whole experience!

I would just like to echo a lot of the reviews re IGT, the service from 1st enquiry thru to airport transfers and the tours were all 1st class. We did the Golden Circle, Southern Coast , Northern lights and Snaefellsness all of which were great. The guides were really good friendly helpful, even going so far as to help with settings on cameras for capturing the lights. They also went out of their way to make sure that arrangements were made for our Northern lights tour to meet us out of town as one of our other tours were running late in getting back to Reyjkavik. All in All a very good experience well done Odinn and your team.

Excellent booking process via the internet before we arrived. Emails very informative and prompt. Pick up very prompt and minibus was roomy and comfortable.
We did three tours – Golden Circle, South Coast and Northern Lights. The guides were very friendly, helpful, and Johan in particular deserves special praise for his skill in negotiating the mountain roads in a white out blizzard, getting us all back to Reykjavik safely.
Odin, our Golden Circle tour guide was very informative and both he and Johan made our tours very enjoyable with their knowledge and humour.
We managed to see the Northern Lights on our one and only evening tour attempt. We really appreciated the fact that IGTours have a photographer who will take your photograph with the lights in the background and email it to you as part of the trip package. No hesitation in recommending IGTours to anyone. Would definitely use them again when we return to Iceland.
