We had Stefán as our guide on the ircle tour... It was like having Sean Connery narrarate THE entire time. Very informative and knowledgeable. We had great weather and were able to see everything. Especially loved the rainbows at Gullfoss. The shuttle was comfortable and the large windows made it easy to see. For the Northern Lights we had Gummi.... More

We had very limited time in Iceland as we were there for a wedding so I decided doing small guided tours was a better bet than renting a car and trying to figure out the roads. We had Andres on both days. His voice can be a little monotone which sometimes lulls you to sleep (not his fault) but he... More

Beautiful tour at relaxed pace. The stops at the parliament canyon, falls, geyser, and secret hot springs were perfect. The coach has very comfortable seating. Check out the Supa restaurant for a nice lunch... tomato basil... wow. Kudos to our guide Andres A. who was very knowledgeable and made the journey a memorable day🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟. Thank you!

We took 2 tours, the Hot Golden Circle & the Northern Lights. The Hot Golden Circle tour was on our first full day. We really enjoyed the trip. I won't go into too many details about the tour as the Golden Circle tour will have been written about extensively. Our guide Andres F was fab, his knowledge & passion for... More

I joined the Glacier Lagoon Tour with Gateway to Iceland and was unfortunate to have Stefan as the tour guide. After visiting the Turf church, Stefan said the bus will be on the way back to Reykjavik. I was puzzled because the Seljalandsfoss waterfall was not yet visited. I asked him about this and he said this waterfall was not... More

Hello! We are very sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your experience. Please allow us to address some of the issues you have stated. Seljalandsfoss has been an optional stop on our Glacier Lagoon tour for the last couple of years. Our guides were often stopping there on their way back, but because the tour is 14h long,... More

We had a great day. Our guide Stefan was very knowledge and had a great sense of humor. The secret lagoon was very clean and comfortable. I recommend this tour if you're in Iceland on a short visit.

Had a fantastic day on the tour with a small group and an expert guide (Bjorn) who told great stories, was so expertly informed and introduced us to some great Icelandic music on the way home. Fantastic way to celebrate my birthday. Highly recommend these guys if ever you visit Iceland.

We took the Golden Circle with Secret Lagoon with Gateway to Iceland -- by all accounts on TripAdvisor and from conversations with the locals the best option in the mini-bus price range. Sorry to have to disagree with everyone. It was just OK. The sights are pretty -- the National Park very nice, the waterfall spectacular, the geysers, eh --... More

My spouse and I did the Hot golden circle tour. It was booked through I Heart Reykjavik, which was very easy. The highlight of the trip was going to the Secret Lagoon and stopping to see some Icelandic horses. The sites were overcrowded with tons of tourists, which can't be avoided. We went during the low season so I can't... More

We did the Golden Circle Tour with an informative driver who introduced us to the snowy mountain tops, waterfalls, geysers and ended the day at the Secret Lagoon.
