“Fantastic tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

We were only in Iceland for two days, and this tour meant that we could do everything we wanted to do over the weekend. An absolutely fantastic day - really enjoyable. I'd highly recommend paying the extra to do the snowmobiling on Langjokull like we did - an amazing experience.

“Excellent day exploring Iceland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

This trip was booked before our trip as we only had a 3 night stay in Reykjavik and wanted to see as much as possible in the available time. We were picked up from our hotel by Helena while it was still dark and after picking up 3 more passengers, set off to Pingvellir. Seeing the valley as day broke was fantastic. After a walk through the park and excellent photo opportunities, lunch at Gullfoss was delicious. We then carried on to the glacier where some of our party went snowmobiling and the rest of us went further up and had a proper walk in the snow. The views were stunning. Driving through rivers was an experience that will not be forgotten quickly. Gullfoss and Geysir were pretty amazing too and the last stop was the volcanic crater. Would highly recommend this tour and would love to do it again in the summer when I'm sure it would be a totally different but just as fantastic an experience. Wear good walking boots and make sure to remember your camera. We did this in January so would say make sure you are properly kitted up for the weather.

“Great day rising out of the gloom”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

Booked this trip before we went to Iceland and it did not disappoint. We were picked up from our hotel in the dark drizzle of the morning and headed out to see the sights of the golden circle. Georg was accompanied by Greta and between them they gave us a fascinating day driving around the various stopping points. This was accompanied by lively, informative conversation ( yes, I will read at least one of the Icelandic sagas!) At all times we were given the opportunity to wander off on our own or with Greta's company. Stopping to take photos, taste fresh mountain water or stroll about on top of a glacier were lovely experiences.The sun came out and really made the day. it was fun in the 4x4 and we experienced what these vehicles were made for. Overall we were very happy that we took the decision to go on the trip and may well return to Iceland as both Georg and Greta opened up so many more avenues for exploring than just the northern lights.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

We used Georg and his superjeep in November for a truly great Iceland experience. The day tour had everything you can ever want and the tour guide (Georg) was not only funny but very knowledgable.
I will be coming back with my family and I will be using discover Iceland.
I totally will be snow scooting and off roading again.

“Wonderful Adventure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

Took my teenage daughters on the Golden Circle tour with Georg as our tour guide. He could not have been any more fun or knowledgeable with the sights. He took us to places that weren't on the itinerary that were of interest to us and offered a lot of local flavor and advice. One of the best tours we have ever taken.. If you really want to get a genuine Iceland experience and have a whole lot of fun, go with these folks.
