Excellent trip with great guide
Nov. 2021 • Friends
Jacob was an excellent tour guide, very knowledgeable, interesting and witty. He kept the trip to schedule and provided a depth of information about Iceland and the places we visited. The bus was comfortable and the trip was the right size to allow everyone to mingle. I would highly recommend this trip.

Fantastic tour
Fantastic trip- all was true to what was advertised. I just wanted the world heritage site and waterfall, so the geysers were something amazing I hadn’t considered before going. And the secret lagoon was a perfect cherry on top- best photos of the family yet:) Ian was our guide and did a fantastic job- friendly and informative.

Great way to see Golden Circle highlights
Oct. 2021
I booked this tour as a solo traveler on a short Iceland getaway in order to see some highlights of the the Golden Circle. I liked the small group format as it made everything more approachable. I had been at Thingvellir the day before for a snorkeling trip and was not sure that going back with a tour would be worth it but guide Jakob was informative and funny, providing both the historical context for the sights as well as some challenges to preconceived ideas. Gullfoss was beautiful and it was fun to see Strokkur erupt. Ending the day with a soak in the Secret Lagoon was perfect! Well paced tour with time for self-exploration at the stops as well as shopping at Gullfoss and Geysir, for those who want that.

Once in a lifetime stuff
Oct. 2021 • Couples
A wonderful day that included everything we wanted to see in a small group of 5 travellers. The golden waterfall was our most breathtaking bit and it was lovely relaxing in the secret lagoon at the end. Jakob told us stories to keep us entertained on the drives and we couldn't have asked for a better guide. Great day.

Excellent in every way
Very welcoming knowledgeable guide- Gummi. Learnt a lot about the country.Mercedes mini bus, just 10 guests on our trip. Day was well paced and you never felt part of a crowd. Secret lagoon watching the sunset was the perfect way to end the day.

Amazing sights
Oct. 2021
We had about 16 people on the tour, which was via a minibus that was comfortable and warm. Our guide, Inga, was very knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating.

The tour included some amazing sights, including the geysirs, the Gullfoss waterfall and the secret lagoon. It is definitely worth doing the tour to ensure you see all of these amazing sights. It is a long day but also very relaxing by finishing with the secret lagoon.

Splendid experience!

Could not have asked for a more perfect experience as provided by our tour guide. Gummi's patient and heartfelt narrative throughout the day made the incredible sights even more incredible. The itinerary was expertly planned. Will never forget the beautiful memories that Gummi gave us that day. He made awe-inspiring Thingvellir and Althing come alive!

Frederick was fabulous
Our guide Frederick was fabulous. We couldn’t have had a more knowledge, flexible guide. I learned so much about Iceland just as we rode through the countryside. If I could I would have kept Frederick for the week as my guide

Not to missed
Oct. 2021 • Couples
Fantastic tour. Gumming, our driver and guide, was a fountain of knowledge and the intimacy of small group (only 10) made it all the more enjoyable. The scenery and activities were well covered and the transport very comfortable. Would recommend this tour for anyone looking to get a glimpse of Iceland, 10 hours on bus but did not feel that length of time and to finish with a dip in the secret lagoon was very relaxing.
