Excellent once again after 4 yrs
Jan. 2020 • Family
Did the tour yesterday 1/20. Our driver/tour guide was Baldwin...he was fantastic. It was snowing but we covered every site of the tour. Very safe driver, thorough explanation of the sites we visited, and very knowledgeable of his country and its history. Very pleasant, funny and respectful young man. He also had crampons available in different sizes for us...another big plus. Did the tour with Iceland Horizon 4 yrs ago and it was as good. I most definitively recommend them again for the Gold Circle Tour.

Brilliant Day on the Golden Circle route
Berglind, our driver/guide for the day, was so engaging and informative that you didn't want to switch off. We learnt so much about Iceland's history, landscape, education system, geology, weather.
Due to there only being 11 in our tour group and keeping good time throughout the day we were able to schedule extra stops into the tour- an icecream farm & horse feeding.
Where as the larger company's tend to complete the golden circle in a particular order, thereby causing congestion at most sites, Horizon iceland work in reverse , so it felt like we had the Kerid crater all to ourselves.
We've booked 2 out of our 3 tours with Horizon Iceland and we highly recommend them. Small group touring in a minivan is definitely the way to go

Excellant tour of Golden Circle
May 2019 • Solo
This small tour of the Golden Circle was fantastic. We stopped at an amazing bakery along the way which also had a exhibit on an earthquake which struck there in 2008. On the ground through a glass display you could see the American and European faults seperated by a narrow chasm which was very cool. We had about 12 people in our group which was perfect. The tour guide was extremely friendly and super informative on everything Icelandic, from Icelandic names, to the history of Cod, animal life, the cost of living there, etc. He also was extremely knowledgeable about the different sites were stopped, and was able to answer every question thrown his way!

The Kerid Cater Lake in an extinct volcano was very impressive, as was the the Gullfoss Falls, which was like a screen saver and looks way better in person than in the pictures. The Geysir Geothermal Area was interesting to see and there was a fantastic, huge gift shop there. Thingveillir National Park was our last stop and was enjoyable both due to its historical significance and the Game of Thrones scenes filmed there.

At the end of the tour our guide drove us through Reykjavik and pointed out the Prime Minister's House, house where Gorbachev and Reagan met, and other spots. I would highly recommend taking the small group tour with this company!

Awesome Tour
I took the Golden Circle small group tour with my friend this April. We had a great experience. Our guide, Berglind made this the first tour not to put me to sleep. She was very knowledgeable of the landscape of Iceland and it's history. Her humor and welcoming spirit allowed us to really embrace the different sites. We had ample time at each stop to take pictures. There were even short add on stops at a waterfall and a bathroom stop at a museum of an earthquake exhibition. There are outlets to charge your phone on the bus so you don't miss any IG worthy pics. We had another tour scheduled that evening. Berglind made sure we made it back on time for it. For that I call her Queen Bee. I learned many things that day, but most importantly not to step on the moss. Thanks Justin Beiber.

Loved Iceland and this tour
Jul. 2018 • Couples
For our port of call in Reykjavik, we pre-arranged a Golden Circle tour with Iceland Horizon. Email communication was excellent. Individual payments were easily handled during the trip via credit card or cash. Our driver and guide was Christine and she was excellent. The van was easy to identify at the port entrance and once we were on board, the trip was comfortable and informative. We hit all the expected locations and had plenty of time for photos and lunch. I would use Iceland Horizon again.

Great & Informative Tour
Oct. 2018 • Couples
Small hiccup at the start where our documents gave the pickup time as 8 AM, however the actual time was 8:30 - no big deal. Our driver/tour guide was a 30 year old girl who I would rate as the best tour guide I have ever seen in 15 years of travel. We we were in Iceland on a cruise ship and did the one day Golden Circle Tour. This tour was super great and we would recommend Iceland Horizon Tours to all. Thanks to our lovely guide who took us places a lot of people don't go as she grew up withing the Golden Circle.
Keep up the excellent tours.

Hi dear Rock Man and thank you so much for the review. It make a big difference for us when our guests give them selves the time to write us a review. We are sorry about the confusing pickup. But at the same time thrilled to read about the guides performance. We are almost sure this was Berglind our guide :-) Best regards and hopefully we will see you again. Hordur.

Beautiful Landscape but Terrible Driver
Jul. 2018 • Couples
We booked the tour with Iceland Horizon but they sub-contracted the tour to GeoIceland who sent a nice van with Oskar as our driver and guide. Oskar was knowledgeable and gave us a lot of good information but he was a terrible driver, he tailgated cars even though it was raining, he also passed vehicles on blind curves. Needless to say we were very nervous. Iceland Horizon sent us an email the night before letting us know that GeoIceland would be picking us up so we knew which van to look for. We loved the locations we visited, they were all beautiful and interesting! Highly recommend the tour, but let Iceland Horizon and GeoIceland know that you don’t want Oskar as your driver.
