What to expect
Begin your tour with pickup from your Reykjavik hotel or at a centrally located meeting point. Meet your local guide and settle into the comfortable air-conditioned bus for the journey to Thingvellir. Set in a dramatic rift valley between cliffs, where the American and Eurasian continents meet, Thingvellir is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and original setting of Iceland's parliament, the oldest in the world. Enjoy ample time to explore the area. Head next for the world-famous Strokkur Geysir and admire its hot water shooting into the air every few minutes. Afterward, drive on to the dramatic Gullfoss waterfall where water plunges in two stages into a 105-foot (32-meter) crevice. Finally, enjoy entrance to the Secret Lagoon. Don't forget your swimsuit and towel so that you can enjoy the relaxing waters of the natural hot spring. Take advantage of the bus' free WiFi to upload and share photos on the way back to Reykjavik, then finish with a drop-off back at your original departure point.

Be careful with pickups, cause they won't bother to check if you're there
Mar 2020 • Business
We bought the tour and were at the pickup place on time, but taking shelter from the wind about 20 metres from the actual stop. No one got out of the minibus to check if the 3 people on their list are there (even though other companies do that and you leave your contact for that reason as well). Also can't get a refund, cause they will say that you didn't show up. Oh yeah and it is ridiculous how much confusion is caused by using similar names for tour companies as well as having 3 different logos on the bus. The tour itself might be okay, but I have no way of knowing, cause I didn't get to take it. In fairness, they offered to reschedule the trip for another day, but we were leaving the next afternoon so that wouldn't have been possible. Anyway, I recommend using a smaller company who still care about personal service.

REYKJAVIK SIGHTSEEING BEST TOUR OPERATOR EVER
Emilia (tour guide) is amazing! Very informative and accommodating!

I dropped my gopro at Thingvellir National Park and someone surrendered it to the visitor centre and Reykjavik Sightseeing Tours ensured that they retrieved it for me!

Highly reccommended!

Great job guys

Cancelled due to bad weather
Jan 2020 • Couples
Unfortunately our tour had to be cancelled due to extreme weather, but the company were very quick to refund when we informed them that we would not be able to rebook this tour with them. Can’t predict the weather but it’s reassuring to know that the company did not drag their heels with a refund.

Great day tour.
Family visit to Iceland and this tour came with secret escapes package. Our group was 6 which consisted of ourselves, 2 children (4 and 7 year old) and grandparents. The pick up and transfers were on time and easy. Our tour guide Kollar was great, very knowledgeable and perfect English speaking so didn’t need to use the tablets. Very informative about all the sights as we went past them and all the areas we stopped at. The overall tour duration is a full day and won’t be back to Reykjavík until around 7pm. Definitely recommend if you want to see varied places.

Amazing!
What can I say, a fantastic company. We actually did two trips with them and both where spot on and well organised. The Golden Circle trip was breathtaking and our tour guide was excellent telling us sagas from Icelandic history. All the stops were well timed and not to long in the cold but long enough to see what was needed and take some great photos. Pick-up was spot on and never waiting to long. Would highly recommend using them!

Pickup Nightmare
Oct 2019
My reason for giving a rating of three is because they tried to rectify our situation and we ended up going on a tour, but not the one we originally booked and wanted. Our hotel booked us on the Golden Circle and Secret Lagoon from Reykjavik. We were at our pickup stop 20 minutes before the scheduled time. Many buses came and went, with the drivers coming out of their bus and calling the names of the booked passengers. We waited and waited and never saw a Reykjavik Sightseeing bus, no less anyone call our name. Finally I showed one of the bus drivers my confirmation and they tried to call the company for us, no answer. He then left and as he turned around he called out his window pointing that "there was our bus". The bus he was referring to was an orange Airport Direct bus. How on earth were we supposed to know that that bus was picking us up, when our confirmation receipt said pickup was by SmartBus (which has several company names on it, one including Reykjavik Sightseeing). We got on the orange Airport Direct bus to the terminal to see what they could do as our tour had already left the terminal. We were able to book a Golden Circle tour that was leaving in 30 minutes, but without the Secret Lagoon stop. I asked for a refund on that portion of the tour then and at first they refused, saying no refunds. I argued saying that they did not pick us up in the bus the confirmation stated and had no earthly clue who Airport Direct was. They finally did concede and refund some, but it was not the full cost of the Secret Lagoon. You will never win with this operators. Our time in Iceland was short and I was at least thankful we were able to take the tour as it was the only day we could go.

Golden Circle and Secret Lagoon
Jul 2019 • Family
Great guide, good value for money and brilliant itinary. Would have been 5 stars but they changed the time of our trip from 9am to 8am at the last minute and had I not checked my emails just before going to sleep we would have missed it.

Secret Lagoon is lovely.

We really enjoyed all the sites on this tour, the coach was very comfortable and the on board tablets with information to listen to as you travel were really interesting. I would book more through this company again if we return to Iceland. The guide was really helpful and looked after us all very well. We were all doing different activities and she made sure we were kept informed about what was happening throughout the day.
