Great trip, did the three main golden circle stops plus extra stops, one for for ice cream, one to visit an area where new hot springs were currently forming and also one to see some friendly horses. The secret lagoon at the end was fantastic. This is far better than the big busses you see doing the tours, the guide was local and really interesting, giving lots of tips on each stop. It leaves at 10 giving you time to have a big leisurely breakfast so you don’t have to spend time getting lunch during the stops at inflated tourist prices. The guide also decided to change the order of the stops when he saw how crowded the car park at the geyser was. Lastly it picks up from your hotel door if you are outside the very centre of town, all the other tours wanted us to walk and wait outside at a bus stop in the wind and rain.

Ian our guide was so informative about everything to do with Iceland. Excellent personality and went above and beyond to make sure everyone had an excellent experience. Also as our cruise had to change the itinerary at last notice the company changed everything to accommodate us without us even having to get in touch. So professional and efficient. We would definitely book again with them.

Date of tour: March 10th 2022 I was attracted to this small group tour because it starts a little later (10 a.m) than the myriad others on offer. And good job I did! This later start means that most of the crowds had moved on. Gummi owns the company himself and is a brilliant guide - an absolute mine of information. The tour rounds off with a visit to the secret lagoon (more authentic and less crowded than the blue lagoon). When next in Iceland I’ll be using the same company - I can’t recommend them highly enough.
