The typical itinerary includes all the major highlights and attractions in southwest Iceland, known as the Golden Circle. Drive through the Thingvellir National Park, site of the world's first democratic parliament during Viking times. Stop at Geysir, the origin of the term 'geyser' in English, and the often-erupting Strokkur. Strokkur erupts every few minutes, ensuring a great photo op of the bright blue spray. 

Visit Gullfoss, the most famous of Iceland's many impressive waterfalls, and return to Reykjavík through Skálholt, the site of the country's first Episcopal See, dating from 1056.

Stop at the Fridheimar greenhouse for a delicious restaurant lunch (not included) and conclude the day at the Kerid Crater, for the possibility to walk around the dead volcano.

Perfect way to tour the Golden Circle
, Aug 2021
This is absolutely the best way to do the Golden Circle Tour! Wonderful guide promptly met us at the hotel and made us feel like VIPs. Guide had lots of information about Iceland's history and culture that was very interesting and useful. Hotel pickup and return were perfect. Our guide had wonderful recommendations for stops and for lunch. Tips: This tour is a long day but getting an early start worked best for us.

We booked a private tour for six. Eigo was our tour guide and we could not have been more pleased. He was so knowledgeable and pleasant. We saw everything we had planned to see. He timed it so we got to see the geyser explode. We had ample time to see each venue. Our lunch was a wonderful unique experience. We ate in a tomato greenhouse restaurant which was a pleasant surprise. I highly recommend this tour.

We had a fabulous experience. Our guide, John, was wonderful. We saw the sights on our terms and in a super comfortable vehicle. A surprise highlight was lunch at a tomato greenhouse. Can't recommend highly enough! We loved it. All ages.

Our only complaint about this experience is that our driver was very reserved. He was professional and timely, but offered little information. We, at times, asked questions to obtain additional information, but received minimal feedback. If someone is looking to be driven to all the sites without wanting to hear about history et al this is a very well run excursion. However, if you are comfortable renting a car with GPS, you would easily have a similar experience and save considerable money.
