Great trip. Lasted for hours so was well worth the money. Several stops as well for toilet and eating. We went with Reykjavik tours and the guides are all lovely.

We did the GC with Fontana Baths. My 8 year old said the Fontana Baths were the best part of the trip. I would have to disagree. I liked the strokkur Geysir better. If you have the time, eat at the Gulfoss cafeteria, so that...More

Totally a must if you visit Iceland. Lots of organised tours but, armed with sufficient guidebooks and a large enough scale map we were confident enough to do this independently. Main attractions, Thingvellir, Geysir and Gullfoss worth the drive alone, but spectacular and ever changing...More

Excellent tour, saw amazing sights and the tour guide was really entertaining and informative. Well worth the £55 pp cost as its a complete day. Some walking/ steps involved so mobility key. Only downside is you change buses at "feeder stations".

We rented a vehicle from Blue Car Rental upon departing our hotel the next morning, adjacent to the airport as well as to the hotel. We DID NOT do the guided tour itself...and glad for that, in fact.

The Golden Circle is basically starting in Reykjavik stopping at Pingvellir, Geysir, and Gullfoss and then looping back. It is a day trip. If you have 7 days, the way better experience is the Ring Road. THAT shows you... More

No, but they help. Some places are slippery and wet. I liked having low hiking boots.
