A great way to see in dramatic fashion the magnificent nature that Iceland has to offer. In 8 short hours we saw shooting geysers, one of the world’s most magnificent waterfalls, a fissure in the ground created by the separation of two tectonic plates, and a lake in the mouth of a volcano. A pretty incredible day.

The whole trip was excellent our guide Iga was brilliant, the geysers, the Thingvellir National Park with tectonic plate shift evidence and the Gulfoss waterfall were all highlights and the Kerid Bolcanic Crater were all done at a leisurely pace

The waterfall, the crater and the rift were all spectacular. Was a long day but worth it. Only downside was the pickup process.

Our guide, Jona, was excellent. She spoke fluent English & her knowledge of everything Icelandic was excellent. She also had a great sense of humour. We were given an extra treat for getting back to the bus on time which was going to see some Icelandic horses. Overall, a long day but very worthwhile & great if you don't have a lot of time in Iceland.

It was a pretty good tour for the price. The amount of people on the tour was a little much. We chose small group tours for everything else we did while in Iceland, and those just seemed to be more comfortable. The stops on this tour were great. Be prepared to be tired at the end of the day.

One day in Iceland

We booked this day trip as we were visiting Reykjavik for one day as part of a cruise holiday to Greenland. The Golden Circle trip is a classic and shows many of the incredible features of Icelandic scenery: the great rift, waterfalls, geysers and a water-filled crater. We would recommend this tour and add that it represented very good value compared with the cost of a cruise ship's excursion. The online booking process was easy and pick-up from cruise terminal (although a little later than advised) was as described.

Great tour with BusTravel Iceland
Sarah_M
, Jul 2022
This was an excellent tour. Our tour guide Jona, and driver Thor, were both fantastic. Jona had interesting and intelligent information to share throughout the day and she did a great job of keeping the tour on time. And Thor was an excellent safe driver including through big rain showers. Really appreciated that the tour operator - BusTravel Iceland - also had really clear communication ahead of time; we received an email from them the day before the tour reconfirming all the tour arrangements. They also had excellent free wifi on the bus. Really our only suggestion would be to allow for more time at Thingvellir Park - it was the shortest stop of the day, but one of the most interesting and it took longer to walk around the site than at other locations. Please add just 15-20 minutes to this stop and the tour would be perfect. Would definitely book with this company again.

The tour was very informative. The guide and driver did a great job. It is good that the guides adjust the order of the itinery according to the predicted weather for that day.
