It was a fairly small group and a comfortable minivan. The driver was also our guide. I thought it would have been better to have a separate driver and a guide so they each could focus on driving and narrating respectively. Nonetheless, the tour took us to main attractions as described. The weather was awful, but every time we got to our destination, it'd clear up and the sun would come out. Very lucky. The sites would have been spectacular in any weather of course, but there is something incredibly special seeing the rainbows glisten in the sunlight. Our lunch stop was at a very touristy place with lots of trinkets and souvenirs. I brought my own healthful lunch and enjoyed it picnic style, getting away from loud tourist crowds. It was lovely. Don't get discouraged if weather forecast for your dates shows unfavourable weather. If one plans his or her trip to Iceland based on weather, he/she will never make it here. Iceland takes unpredictable and ever-changing to a whole new level. Also, Iceland eats umbrellas for breakfast - don't bother.
Really glad we did the tour with this company Go To Joy Iceland They contacted us day before to arrange pick up and were very efficient. Comfortable mini bus with only 6 on tour. Interesting commentary made journey pass quickly and there was just the right amount of time at each stop. The driver and guide, Makrem, was friendly and thoughtful eg. parking in different car parks to where he dropped us off so we didn't have to retrace our steps and offering to charge phones We took a packed lunch, so didn't use the cafe at geysers- glad we did, as it allowed us to make the most of the spectacular sight here probably our favourite stop. There is a small charge 400 ISK per person at Kerid as there is a private landowner. Enjoyed all the stops on the tour, including the chance to feed the beautiful Icelandic horses.The day was perfect in every way. Thank you!
We had a great tour. Just 4 of us in the group and got to see some amazing sights. The driver/guide was very friendly and provided some interesting insights into what we were seeing, but also gave us plenty of time to wander and explore ourselves. Highly recommend this Golden Circle tour!
If you only do one tour in Reykjavik it should be the Golden Circle! And going with GoToJoyIceland is the company to use. The minivan was so much more enjoyable than a large coach. Our driver/guide Makrem was very attentive and professional. I would recommend this tour to everyone.
Excellent tour! Our guide was super friendly, very professional and was always eager to make our experience worth remembering. It was indeed a memorable trip. I highly recommend Go To Joy Iceland for Golden Circle tour.
