Wake Up Reykjavik Tour Review by Natasha L

Outstanding tour!

What can I say? It was fantastic the whole way through. We were picked up on time, the minibus was comfortable, our guide was fun and informative. She didn't just give us facts, she told us interesting stories about Icelandic culture.. In one day, we saw a volcano, a waterfall, a geyser and a national park. What a fun day! Loved this tour so much that we booked on to the south coast tour the day after.

Wake Up Reykjavik Tour Review by JaneB89
Highly recommended day trip!

Fascinating 8 hour tour of several beautiful Icelandic sights. This tour is a small group tour of no more than about 19 people. Some other tours have buses carrying 40 - 50 people. There were frequent stops, so you’re only driving for about 45 minutes at most between stops. Plenty of time provided to explore at each stop. Our guide was Baldwin, the best tour guide during our time in Iceland. He explained each sight we visited, and welcomed questions from the group. The experience was great. In the winter, dress warmly. Warm water-proof foot wear is a big plus. In winter, do not try to drive this tour route on your own. Go with a highly rated tour company for safety reasons

Wake Up Reykjavik Tour Review by Davidveld
Most memorable tour ever!

The Golden Circle Day Tour was a great experience! Berglind was a very funny, knowledgeable and enthusiastic -but very safe and smooth- driver and tour guide. She showered us with interesting stories about the politics, history, and geology of the island.. But best of all were the stories of her and the people's life on the island. My trip to the island would not have been the same without this experience. Looking for a tour? Look no further!
