Great day at Golden Circle and Secret Lagoon. Our guide Kat was great, gave us lots of tips and taught us a lot. The audio guides are very interesting too. The landscapes are beautiful and we enjoyed it very much. On the way back, the guide, Marina, explained a lot to us about everything we saw on the road, which was very interesting and very appreciable.

Great way to see the country, understand it's peculiarities, experience different sights and of course swim in hot water whilst the air temperature is below freezing. Pick up was on time and transfer at the bus terminal was organised to perfection. Our guide was very informative and always on hand to answer any questions, time at each site was just enough allowing time for comfort breaks and drinks.

We had a great time on the tour, our guide Ralph was very friendly, funny and informative. Unfortunately the day we went the road to thingveller park was closed because of bad weather so we didn't get to go there but Ralph brought us to see and pet some Icelandic horses on a farm which was actually the highlight of my day!
