Golden Circle tour was great
From the pickup to the drop off the tour guide/driver was very friend extremely helpful and genuinely interested in ensuring we enjoyed the trip and gained as much information in the time available. The whole Golden Circle tour was good but we enjoyed the Secret Lagoon in particular - it is well worth a visit too experience swimming in the hot pool.
Gullfoss: Gullfoss, the golden waterfall is one of the three sights of the Golden Circle route. This great waterfall attracts thousands of visitors every year and for a good reason – According to the World of Waterfalls, it is one of the top ten best waterfalls in the world.
Geysir: Here you will have the opportunity to walk among the bubbling hot springs that surround the great Geysir, but make sure to stay within the restricted area for your own safety. Strokkur geyser is a site that you should definitely not miss before heading to your next stop, spouting water sometimes up to 40m high!
Þingvellir National Park: Thingvellir National Park a UNESCO world heritage site. Here the Icelandic history and great geological wonders come together, making the place one of Iceland‘s most interesting sites.

Yes, we do. Langjökull Ice Cave is a magical experience, the tour has no minimum age and is a wonderful option for the whole family. Whale Watching with our partner company Elding has been a favourite with families traveling with young children, these guys have a great success rate in seeing whales (upwards of 98% in the summertime).
Another option would be the Landmannalaugar Safari on this tour you get to explore parts of the Icelandic highlands and bathe in natural hot springs. Most of our super jeep tours are also suitable for children over the age of 6 years old. If you would like a nice and relaxing experience we would also recommend the Golden Circle & Secret Lagoon tour.

tour Guide Helga was lovely and so knowledgeable on this trip. It gave a great insight to Iceland and was well planned. Just enough time at each stop.
