What to expect
Meet a driver at your centrally located Reykjavik meeting spot, or at the cruise port, and then leave the city behind as you head into Iceland’s rugged, mountainous interior. The first stop on the Golden Circle route is Thingvellir National Park, where Iceland held its first parliamentary assembly. Hear guide commentary about the site as you admire the pristine beauty, and peer into the Thingvellir Rift, two tectonic plates joined by a narrow valley. Next, head to Gullfoss Waterfall, double-tiered cascades that send up spectacular mist and occasional rainbows. Continue along the Golden Circle to an area simmering with volcanic activity, hot springs, pools, and steam vents. Keep your camera ready at Strokkur, a powerful waterspout that erupts 98 feet (30 meters) in the air. This Golden Circle tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

Uncomfortable bus spoiled the day
Jun 2021
The small group bus lacks legroom. Knees are crushed into the next seat. Humps under foot cramp the legs further. The guide conscientiously pointed out interesting sights along the way but his commentary was inaudible. Badly fitting front door made lots of noise. Too hot throughout the bus so we had to put on and take off jackets outside in the cold. Altogether the discomfort made the tour much less enjoyable than it should have been.

Thank you walkersadventure for writing your review. It is truly regrettable that your comfort was compromized during the tour. I do hope that the several stops along the way to view the sites made up for the bus ride discomfort. Your report will be put forward to our coach manager. Normally we would have large coaches for excursions of several hours, the number of passengers may have been low on the day not to justify a larger coach. I do hope that your visit with us in Iceland was otherwise pleasant

Awesome golden circle tour
Matthias was an amazing guide. If I use this service again I hope to have him as a guide. It was his first day back after the past year due to the pandemic so I wish him and the business all the success looking towards a busy summer 2021. He is very informational and made the journey very enjoyable.

Dang, that was cold!
Mar 2020
I was ready for the tour, I was ready to be taken around by a bus, I was ready to see a bunch of Iceland, I was NOT ready for the cold.

Our first stop was Thingvellir National Park for about an hour of hiking, second stop was Golden Falls with high winds and lunch, and the last stop was Geysir. If you're going in March, the bus is well heated, make sure you have enough warm clothes on when you're getting out to explore.

Sights OK, tour guide GREAT
Jul 2020 • Couples
Even though I’m giving this 4-stars, I’m giving our tour guide DeeDee 5 stars! She was great! Funny, excitable and of knowledgeable. As an American i really loved all of her American references and “valley girl” accents 😹.

I’m giving the overall tour 4 stars Bc of all the sites we’ve seen (this being our last full day inc iceland), the three on this tour weren’t that great and didn’t even make our top 5 list of places we’ve seen. This of course may have not been the case if we’d done this tour the first day arriving vs our last day.

All in all, it was a good tour. We were most excited to see the geysir! It was really cool, but everything else didn’t quite meet our expectations— since it feels we’re now seasoned Icelandic adventurers 😂😂

My advice is, if you want a break from driving, this is a good tour for you AND to do this tour early on in your trip here..so you won’t be underwhelmed like us. I definitely think it’s WORTH taking the tour, just learn from our mistake. Also, bring your lunch, as many other people have stated. You’ll save money and time!

We love you DeeDee, keep being your unique ball of energy!

Thank you GorgoTravels for your very positive review of our Golden Circle Classic tour. Glad you enjoyed the Geysir area and the ever active Strokkur geysir. Seems you have been to Thingvellir and seen Gullfoss waterfall before that are also some of our best loved natural attractions on this tour. Your compliments for DeeDee have been delivered, she certainly is a unique ball of energy. Thank you for sharing your photos

Corona Virus Cancellation? No problem!
Mar 2020
A pleasure to deal with, cruise cancelled and I had booked independently of the cruise company for half the price. No quibble refund, unlike Titanic Belfast (who admittedly do state Not Refundable but made No exception for these extenuating circumstances). In fact EVERYBODY refunded except TB.
Definitely will use Gray line when/if we can eventually travel again

Golden circle classic tour
Mar 2020 • Family
My daughter and I went on the Golden Circle tour yesterday with Gray Line Tours. What an experience. You get to see the true beauty of Icelands dramatic landscape .. with a few hidden gems along the way. What absolutely made the tour for us was our driver and tour guide Baldur and Darren who were so friendly, informative, engaging and even entertaining. They lifted the tour to an even better level and anyone lucky enough to have these 2 as their guides will take away an unfogettable memory. Thank you Gray Line and thank you Baldur and Darren.
