My wife and I just took the Golden Circle tour on our trip to Iceland to celebrate our anniversary. The tour itself was wonderful, as we got to see lots of landmarks in Iceland in just one full 12-hour day. Our guide, Jonas (Sp?), was amazing. He said he thought he may have talked too much, lol, but we loved hearing everything he had to share about the country, it’s rich history, and lots of funny jokes thrown in. He even was able to add in a few extra stops for us since our group was very prompt with our return times at each location. Our specific tour ended at the blue lagoon, which was wonderful as well. All in all we really enjoyed this from start to finish, and although the tour and its locations were amazing, it was really our guide Jonas that made it perfect. We will definitely miss his stories, and hope he gets a chance to see this message and know how appreciative we are of him. Thanks, Jonas, from your favorite New York couple!!

Bus was there on time, 9 o'clock. The small group (?) consisted of 18 people. The driver/guide was easy to understand. There were a few additional short stops, however this time was lacking in hindsight at the actual sights. So you had to rush through the continental plates. There was a longer lunch break at the geyser, so if you didn't go to the restaurant, you had more time to see several "eruptions" of the geyser. Unfortunately, time was too short at Gullfoss. Walk there, photos, back to the bus. It would have been nice to have just been there for a few minutes just to enjoy this mighty spectacle. At the crater, on the other hand, you had enough time. At around 3:00 p.m., the return journey to Reykjavik began. Since some participants had also booked the blue lagoon, the group was split up at a parking lot. There was a longer waiting time because another bus wasn't ready yet. We were back at the hotel shortly after 4 p.m. Actually, the trip should have ended at

So happy that I booked this trip with NiceTravel via GetYourGuide. Our pick up from the port was just a few minutes late as our driver/guide hadn't previously picked up from there, but a quick call to them confirmed he was literally just entering the port so no problem at all. A great group of 17 other folk from various hotels and nationalities filled the minibus. Our guide Jonas (apologies if I have spelt this incorrectly) was excellent, he told us just enough to keep us interested without the boring facts and figures spiel but was happy to answer any other questions we might have. Trip was superb, far exceeded our expectations and Jonas threw in an additional couple of stops/sights as time was on our side. Highly recommend this trip and both companies, no complaints whatsoever and will use GetYourGuide for any further trips.
