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.

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.

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.

We had a private tour of the Golden Triangle, and it was quite good. We left at 9:00 AM, ahead of the tour busses and other major traffic. Excellent views of waterfalls and geysers.
