After a morning pickup from your Reykjavik hotel, you'll travel in style on a bus with Wi-Fi access and GPS sensitive tablets with audio commentary. A guide provides commentary during the bus journey. 

The tour starts at UNESCO World Heritage Site, Thingvellir National Park. Here you can see where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates have pulled apart and created a rift valley: its an amazing place to take photos of Iceland's largest lake and enjoy panoramic views.

Next you'll stop off at Geysir Hot Springs, where you'll witness the world-famous erupting Strokkur Geyser. If you're hungry, you'll be able to pick up snacks and drinks from shops here.

Finally, you'll head to the stunning Gullfoss Waterfall. The two-tiered waterfall cascades down 104 feet (32 meters) and roars as the water hits the glacial lake at the base.

Your day finishes with a drop-off at your hotel.

Tour not the length we expected

Although the tour was ok, we thought it would be only 6 hours, but that tour no longer existed. Local guide was great. We especially enjoyed the discussion about the Teutonic Plates. Unfortunately it was rainy and foggy for the second half of tour.

Our guide Marco was great!

We were lucky to have a small group for our tour. Our guide Marco was very interesting and informative. The sights you see on this tour are awesome. It took 7.5 hours, but it went by fast. I highly recommend this tour!
