Take a bus tour of the Golden Circle from Reykjavik for eight hours to see the best of southwest Iceland. Go to the Gullfoss Waterfall's cascades and the stunning Geysir area. In Þngvellir National Park, you can see where the tectonic plates of North America and Eurasia meet.

Go to the Geysir geothermal area. Wonder as the dynamic natural aquifer of Strokkur rambles steaming water 30 meters high up every 8 minutes like clockwork.

Continue on to the Gullfoss Waterfall (also known as the "Golden Falls"), one of Iceland's most famous landmarks. As the glacial River Hvitá descends into a 32-meter-deep crevice, feel the spray of its waters.

Enter Þingvellir National Park, where the tectonic plates of North America and Eurasia are separating at a rate of a few centimeters per year, is the next step.

In 2004, Þngvellir was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its cultural significance. It is home to the Rock of Law, which served as the first Viking parliament, as well as a stunning rift valley.

On your drive around the Golden Circle, take in the volcanic crater at Lake Kerið and the Icelandic farms in the south before returning to your starting point in Reykjavik.

We were picked up at the bus stop near our hotel and went to the petrol station where the main bus was waiting for us that we had to change into. the tour guide was lovely and explained everything to us on the way along with Icelandic traditions and stories which was good. Everything was timed well and the tour finished on time.

We had an amazing day with Monika, our tour guide, and Andrew, our driver. The day was well spent and it was so nice to let someone else do the driving for us in case a little napping was needed. Monika put a lot of time and energy into sharing great information about each place we visited. I liked her spin on incorporating local music into her presentation. Overall, it was a great day with incredible sights I'll always remember.

Our guide Geri and driver Pietr were lovely. The whole experience was on time, and both Geri and Pietr made the whole group feel at ease and we set off our journey with positivity. There was lots of information to take in as Geri was very knowledgeable The places we visited were astounding and worthwhile; definitely worth doing the tour!

Monika and Kalaman gave us an amazing day. My only criticism would be time given at the crater was too short for anyone less than the supper fit to walk round top and bottom of crater an extra 30 to 45 min would have given most people chance to do this once in a lifetime experience again the waterfall another 15 mins would have made the world of difference

It was a wonderful experience. Our guide Perla and driver Magic did an excellent job. I enjoyed very much Perla's commentaries which were interesting, funny, informative, and sometimes including her personal episodes. Good balance between commentary time and tranquility (music) time. And many thanks for the small additional stops by a beautiful river, ice cream farm, horse farm.

Leona was fabulous. Very organized. We saw so much; it was mind boggling. My only criticism was the boarding process. Chaotic and very frustrating. Multiple buses parked in several places. Hoards of cruise ship passengers trying to find their tour. It was a real mess.

The tour is exactly in line with the description: so the expectations will be satisfied during the trip! The different stops allow the participants to see spectacular views and attractions of Iceland, furthermore the cherry on top is the clear explanations and kindness of the touristic guide

This tour was great to see all of the main stops on the golden circle! It included the national park, the golden waterfall, and the geysir. Each stop has bathrooms and food options as you are on the bus for a good bit in between. I forgot our guide’s name but he was hilarious and very thorough. I recommend this tour!

I spent an amazing day discovering the Golden Circle in Iceland ! Our guide was really nice, with a lot of explanations (but not too much !) in the bus. The time spent in each place can be short, but it is the main and classical inconvenient to do the Golden Circle in 1 day. I recommend this excursion to enjoy Iceland nature in one day !

We enjoyed how the tour guide added two stops to the tour because we were doing so good on time. She was very informative and really wanted each person to enjoy their time. While tours like this can be rushed she understood that people do want their time at each place. Great experience!
