Golden Circle
, Jun 2019
Our guide Sergio went out of his way to make sure we saw the many sites, kept us on schedule to get as much seen as possible. We wanted to visit the Secret Lagoon and he fit that in our tour. Picked a wonderful place for us to have lunch - introduced us to a lovely dairy farm with fantastic ice cream. He included a great deal of Iceland history and geography as he toured us - patiently waited for us to capture all the pictures we wanted. A memorable trip made even better with this tour.
Very disappointed in Viator

Having used Viator in Europe, I expected excellent communication, especially with a price tag of $1,000 for a one day tour of the Golden Circle area. Our guide was 5 stars. However, again, for the price of the tour, I expected someone from Iceland who would give us more cultural insight, and a little more accurate information, than a person in the country for only two years. That was a huge disappointment. Worse, though, my attempts to communicate with the Viator staff in Iceland went completely unanswered. No, I was ignored. We didn't even receive any email messages or phone call to our hotel prior to our tour, nothing! I sent emails and phoned the numbers I was given starting about two weeks before our arrival in Iceland with very specific questions about the tour. I also called and emailed Sergei the day before and the day of the tour. He has never responded. Inexcusable! I will certainly think twice about using Viator in the future for any of our travels. Again, our guide, Paul, was a very charming and accommodating fellow. Except for the knowledge base we expected and paid for, he gets 5 stars.

Great trip with the most beautiful scenery imaginable. Kiddi was our guide and he is a very knowledgeable, pleasant Viking. We had a great day!

I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. Our tour guide, Sergey, was terrific. He knew so much about everywhere we went and made the tour so incredibly convenient. I was a total goober and overlooked our pickup time on the voucher and he patiently responded to me like 5 inquiries the night before. He was on time to pick us up and is just a really nice guy in general. He also taught me how to work the panorama function on my phone. The stops on the tour were a lot of fun. The geothermal station has a lot of really pretty views and it's cool to learn how Iceland gets its heat. The geysers are neat and the crater is very pretty. Thingvellir Park is really cool and has a lot of neat history. The greenhouse with the tomatoes where we went for lunch was probably my favorite food stop the entire time I was in Iceland and I don't even usually like tomato soup. The whole day was just really amazing and my friends and I had a great time. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Enjoyed the privacy of the tour for just our family. Sergei the guide was extremely knowledgeable and informative. He educated us with rich history of the region and personalized the whole experience for us Although it was a long day of touring, the frequent stops and walks and hikes to beautiful locations made the day interesting and not at all tedious. Highly recommended

We enjoyed a great day. Sergei, our guide, was friendly, informative and efficient. He provided lots of facts and figures regarding Rekjavic and tried to ensure that we found the best spots and took photos of our group. All the sights were fascinating . It is difficult to select a favourite but the Gulfoss Waterfall probably has the edge simply for the 'wow' factor. I would thoroughly recommend this trip.

This is by far the best way to see The Golden Circle. Sergei was a fantastic guide, knowledgeable and great to spend the day with. I did not feel rushed as you do with so many other tours and he was continuously giving us history of the country and points of interest. We loved seeing all of the falls and scenery. One of our favorite points of the day was lunch at a tomato greenhouse. It was absolutely fantastic. Don't go to Iceland and miss this travel adventure!!!

It was a wonderful experience. We had already spent 10 days in the north of Iceland on our own birding and hiking and whale watching so we had seen a lot of Iceland. Our guide went out of his way to take us to many places that were never on a regular tour so that we got to see parts of Iceland that the general tourist never sees. At one particular spot we took a walk through an area filled with hot steam fissures. It was very beautiful and totally empty of people. Even when we went to the site of the founding of the Icelandic nation, where hundreds of tourist were, he managed to drop us off near the entrance park and then meet us and then go back and get the car and pick us up in a different place far away from the crowds. We had time to visit sites at our leisure including a waterfall where we were the only people. It was magical. When we wanted to take a picture, he would show us the very best angel. It was worth every penny we paid!!! Lovely! My only suggestion that on the lake near the site of the power plant with a great view is a spa We stopped for a quick visit. If possible, I would recommend stopping for tea and taking a swim in the hot pools. It was very beautiful! I will certainly go to that site again on my next visit and spend an hour or two there before going on t other sites.

Despite our ship arrived Reykjavik late and forced to start our tour at 5:30pm , our guide showed us around beautiful places with such enthusiasm. Took extra effort in showing us best vantage points. Never took short cut despite the late hours. We finished tour at midnight!

Had a terrific tour with Sergei! He paced the tour perfectly for our group and is a fountain of knowledge. This was our first exploration in Iceland and he was the BEST guide! We covered a lot of territory and enjoyed every bit of it.
