The Golden Circle Tour

The Golden Circle is among Iceland's most popular routes, and you'll get to experience it for yourself on this scenic tour. Your Reykjavik tour takes you to some of Iceland's incredible natural attractions that will provide you with memories that will last a lifetime. If you want to make the most of your time in Reykjavik, book your tour now.

The popular tourist route needs no introduction. The loop is home to a number of attractions including Strokkur, Gullfoss, and Thingvellir National Park. Strokkur is an amazing sight to behold: The geyser shoots up a water column that reaches almost 100 feet! This occurs every 4 to 8 minutes, so you'll have plenty of chances for a photo. Here, you will have about an hour to relax or purchase lunch. Another stop is Gullfoss, the majestic Iceland waterfall with a drop of more than 100 feet; you can stand next to it for a quick photo. You will also visit Thingvellir National Park, where you'll be able to see exactly where Eurasian and American tectonic plates pull apart little by little each year.

The Golden Circle Tour in Iceland
September 18, 2019
Loved this tour. It is an absolute must for visitors to Iceland. The guide was well informed and easy to listen to. We were told what we were going to see, background information about the site, then we saw the attraction. Upon leaving we could ask questions. Then, the process was repeated for the next stop on our route. The tour went to 3 "don't miss" sites. In addition the guide told us local history and information of places as we traveled through the countryside. I would have given the tour 5 stars had the pick-up bus not been late, leaving us waiting in the rain for an extended period.

Collected at the cruise terminal, so very convenient. The guide was excellent, told us all we needed to know as we travelled to each location, then we were free to view each site at our leisure. Plenty of time at each location, so never rushed. A tour well worth doing, and much cheaper than the ships own excursions.

The guide was excellent, the tour was identical to what the ship offered without a meal, which allowed us more time at the sights. We ate at the "food court" area at Geysir for much less than the extra cost of the ship excursion, and the bus even had WiFi and charging ports. Iceland has some of the most amazing natural sights in the world and this tour takes you to a few of them.

The guide is very knowledgeable and provided a lot of information on Iceland. But shuttle arrived late in the morning which confused all of its customers.

This was basically the same tour, using the same bus company as the cruise line but at a much lower price. The guide was good, we stopped at major sites and had ample time to enjoy. It would be nice if there had been a representative on site to meet passengers and direct them to the bus. We walked back and forth among buses as we were told our bus was "over there". As it turned out, our bus was not there. The cruise people would offer no info and the info desk in the gift shop would only offer a number to call - ok if we had phones that worked in Iceland. They also said that the "8:30 departure time, meet 10 min early" meant that the bus could arrive up to 9:00. Finally, as the cruise tours were leaving,a driver said he called the company and that our bus would arrive in a few minutes. My suggestion to Shore Excursions is to have someone there to greet passengers.There was a lot of stress among a bus full of passengers wondering if we were going anywhere at all.
