Great tour to see all the highlights in one day
Feb 2020
The guide is very friendly as any Icelandic people we have met.

We are able to see 4 attractions in one day with sufficient time to take some photos and walk around.

The price is very good as well!

I will definitely recommend this tour :)

Afternoon golden circle trip!
Dec 2019 • Friends
Excellent trip, wouldn't change anything. The day was well spent seeing all the beautiful sights. Our driver and tour guide where amazing couldn't fault them. (Can't remember their names) The tour guide provided us with very good information all throughout the tour, which was amazing. The bus had wifi which worked at all times. We stopped for some food after we visited the geysir hot springs and the food was lovely i ate the fish and chips and my mum ate the tomato soup. We had more than enough time at each stop to admire the sights. Me and my mum would 100% recommend this company.

Good introduction to Iceland, but recommend doing other tours too
Jun 2019
This tour is a good introduction to Iceland, but is massively touristy and not as enjoyable as some of the other tours I went on, such as the Snaefellsnes Peninsula tour (also from Bus Travel Iceland). Our tour guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

Great Tour, Excellent Driver and Guide
Mar 2019 • Couples
Great tour of the major highlights on the Golden Circle. The guide was very knowledgeable, the bus was comfortable and they picked up and dropped off at our hotel. It was nice to relax and let someone else do the driving in March weather. Plenty of time at all the stops and lots of great info along the way. Highly recommended.
