Excellent Tour Guide
Such a great tour. Tour guide (Inga?) so good. Included commentary on sights, as well as deep dive history of Iceland. Attentive, engaged, and always explained what we were doing and seeing in thorough detail. Couldn’t have asked for a better tour!

Golden Circle and Secret Lagoon Full Day Tour from Reykjavik by Minibus
Baldwin, our tour guide, is knowledgeable. The sights speak for themselves, awesome landscapes, absolutely mesmerized by the hot springs over the place, other than the volcano eruption risks, this country is blessed Roth lots of geothermal energy, clean spring water, simply lovely.

Golden Circle and Secret Lagoon Day Tour with Kerid Crater from Reykjavik
From the moment I was picked up the energy was great. Its nice that they pick you up from your stay and bring you to a meeting point with a bigger bus. The bus has wifi. Our tour guide was on his first day (I can’t remember his name ) but he was amazing ! He gave us tips on how long each stop would take and what to actually walk. We stopped at the secret lagoon and it was an amazing experience. He also made a stop to horses that we were able to feed !

Small-Group Golden Circle Tour and Secret Lagoon Visit from Reykjavik
The most memorable visit of the trip was the Gullfoss Falls. Words can not adequately describe the experience of sight and sound as the water pours kver and into the gorge. You have to see it in person. Our driver and guide Doolui was shared great stories of all the sites we visited.

Golden Circle and Secret Lagoon Tour from Reykjavík
Axel was a knowledgeable and capable guide who ensured understanding about what was going to happen at each stop. Comfortable van and limited number of participants added to the experience. Lunch stop at the Tomato Farm was incredible and delicious. The final stop at the Lagoon put the exclamation point on a full day out of Reykjavik.

Northern Lights and Midnight Sun

While the geothermal area around the Secret Lagoon is a prime viewing spot for the seasonal phenomena of the Northern Lights (winter) and the Midnight Sun (summer), the swimming pool itself is only open until 8pm in winter and 10pm in summer. Many tours combine an atmospheric evening swim in the lagoon with a Northern Lights viewing safari or a tour of the Golden Circle beneath the light of the Midnight Sun.
