Great trip made superb by our guide Hildi - was like a day trip with a friend rather than a guide! Went to all three spots as advertised and Hildi walked round with us giving us a different insight and additional information. She also did two impromptu stops so we could see bread baking in the ground in the geothermal area, and the Icelandic horses! Fab end to the day with the Secret Lagoon, and yes you do need to shower naked. Just drop the towel and go for it. Thanks Hildi, you were amazing!

A must-do tour of Iceland

The Golden Circle tour is a must when visiting Iceland! We visited in December and were very lucky that the weather was clear and sunny, although cold of course. Our guide Jakob was extremely knowledgeable. He did a great job of going over the history of Iceland and every stop. Jakob also did a great job of sharing tips to get the most out of each stop. Highly recommend this tour!

Thank you for your good review. I´m glad to hear you enjoyed Jakob as a guide, his knowledge, and expertise.

Ian was our fantastic tour guide who is a fountain of knowledge - I cannot recommend him enough! The time spent in each location was plenty to soak in the beautiful sights and the secret lagoon was absolutely wonderful! Also the people on the small bus tour were so lovely- so all in all a fantastic day out!

Great tour- loved blue lagoon
Alex_H
, Nov 2021
This was a smaller mini bus style tour, and felt a lot more personal than some of the bigger coaches offering similar tours. Tour guide was very knowledgeable, and ticked lots of the golden circle bucket list things off, including a few extras too like a visit to a small stable to see horse, and scenic view over lakes. Only criticism would be that the lunch was extremely rushed, so we had little time to eat lunch and see the waterfall. After a busy day, it was great finishing in secret lagoon, and we got over an hour in there to relax. Would recommend.
icon Response from Host , Nov 2021
Hi Alex! Thanks for your review. Sorry for the quick lunch, but we're glad you were able to see all the sites. Things get a little rushed in the winter with the shorter hours of daylight. Hope you get to see some Northern Lights on your trip here.
