We chose Iceland Guided Tours for our Golden Circle tour after reviewing TA reviews. I can only add what other reviews have said, it was a first rate tour, well organised and the guide, Odin, was the perfect host.

I recommend this tour operator. Our golden circle tour picked us up at our hotel on time but the driver /guide apologized for the mini bus being a bit cramped due to a breakdown. I thought this was an excuse but, sure enough at the first stop off another bus was waiting for us. We went on to have a wonderful trip with loads of information from our friendly, well experienced guide. We learned a lot of Icelands' history and culture as well as seeing the amazing sights. Superb!

The Northern Lights trip with IGT was fabulous! They only use a small minibus so the max size of group is about 16. We were so lucky to have Johann who even helped us set up our cameras and then he took one with his super camera/tripod and emailed it to us. The larger tour companies can have hundreds of people out if the weather has been poor and trips cancelled on previous days. Johann found a secluded spot off the beaten track and we were the only people there - perfect! Even more special when my boyfriend proposed under the northern lights - something he probably wouldn't have done if we had been in a large group.

We also used IGT to get to and from the airport and the Blue Lagoon. The driver was always exactly on time and very reliable.

To summarise a very reliable company with a personal touch, and good value too!

After comparing various tour companies we chose Iceland Guides Tours. They had been recommended to us by fellow travellers. For the Golden Circle Tour they were about 2000 ISK cheaper than some of the larger coach firms, and visited a couple of extra places that the larger firms don't seem to visit. For example the coffee shop at Hvergaerti, which has an exposed section of fault line under a glass walkway and the volcanic crater at Kerid.

The use of minibuses does mean that a smaller group is easier to talk to, get on with and you don't get the impression of being herded around like cattle from one place to another. That personal touch makes all the difference. The knowledgeable drivers share their love of their native country with humour, but also give you an insight into the history, culture, geology sociology, biology, geography and mythology of Iceland.

I used tripadvisor to find the right tour company for us to see the best of what Iceland has to offer. I chose Ig tours aka Iceland guided tours. We were not disappointed. Booked online before we left uk but paid on the day to the driver , no problems. Picked up promptly from the hotel both days. We chose the golden circle tour and the south coast tour. Two different guides for each tour but both were very knowledgeable. The drivers did there best to avoid stops with the big coaches or if weather was bad at that moment - but chose to visit the same places later in the day.
Would recommend
