Why I think you will have a great time on this tour!

The Golden Circle is the KING of all Icelandic tours. It includes everything you want on a sight-seeing tour. Not only do you get to see the classics as mentioned in the description but you can tailor it to your groups desires, visiting more places than typically on the Golden Circle.

Getting to see the majestic and powerfall Gullfoss waterfall, the world famous Geysir (from which the word geysir is derived), Þingvellir (Thingvellir National Park) where we had our parliament from the year 930, Alþing, until 1800, when it was moved to Reykjavík. The democracy of Iceland was established at Þingvellir in 1944. The place is brimming with history and on top of that, it literally marks the rift between the North-American tectonic plate and the Eurasian one - you can even swim between the two if you like!

Whether you like history, nature, sight-seeing, relaxing or eating, you will find something to your liking on this tour!

A private tour to remember!!!

This was the most amazing private tour and was just perfect for myself, my husband and our twin 11 year old boys who would have no doubt been bored on a normal guided tour with others. Julian was the most amazing guide, and not only was his knowledge about Iceland second to none, but he really went out of his way to give not only ourselves, but the boys a day to really remember!! Nothing was too much trouble, we could stay as little or as long as we wanted in locations, and he took us where ever we wanted to go, suggesting other activities along the way that we were not expecting to see or do! From geysirs to gullfoss, artic horses to an ice cream parlour, Julian really went above and beyond what we were expecting and the boys loved his energy which no doubt matched theirs - snowball fights included!! Thank you so much once again and we will no doubt start planning our next trip with you guys soon!!! Thanks again for a super day!!! ☺️
