So glad that we booked this tour as a package as it was a great day and each stop was amazing, with the highlight ending the day at the Blue Lagoon that was awesome! Our tour guide Axel was a great guide, very attentive and knowledgeable and timed the day perfectly at each stop as did not feel rushed or pressured to move on from each stop at all. Would 100% recommend to anyone thinking of checking out the golden circle tour and blue lagoon together, 100% worth it!

Beautiful trip to the Golden Circle! Met amazing people and had so much fun! Beautiful sceneries and very nice stops! Only thing I would prefer is a little longer stay at the Blue Lagoon. Just did not feel long enough. Other than that little point, we had such an amazing time! Thank you so much!

This was an amazing day trip! The Golden Circle gets its name for a reason and getting to see these amazing sights in person was so worth it! Our tour guide shared information about Iceland as we drove around the sights. Some of the stops were a bit shorter than I would have liked, but I was able to see what I wanted to and get back to the bus on time with a little bit of hustle. The Blue Lagoon was amazing - two hours was a great amount of time to spend there just to get to experience it!
