Covered in 7 hours the three siggts well. Did not have time for all day tour. But we were on tour bus 1.5 hours after tour trying to get dropped off at hotel in center of city. Finally after 1.5 hours were transferred to smaller bus. Should've known big bus could not go down narrow streets earlier. 4 people in our party of 6 missed the tour due to bus from Blue Lagoon not able to get down street to drop off at hotel. So lost 4 people's price of ticket already purchased. Was very disorganized pickup & drop off.

We are well aware of large coach bus capabilities in Central Reykjavik, and have this shuttle service in place for all tours; our apologies if this information was missed or not presented clearly during the tour. We have alerted out staff in Iceland to your comments about the guests going to the Blue Lagoon, and they will investigate the matter further.

Although the weather was foul, Christine - our guide kept spirits up and was knowledgeable and friendly. A delay at the start with some confusion over a baby seats meant we had less time but couldn't be helped.

In one afternoon, this popular Golden Circle tour allows you to visit some of Iceland’s most famous natural and historical attractions including Thingvellir National Park where the Viking age Icelandic parliament, Alþingi was established in the year 930 AD.

In 2004 Thingvellir National Park was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List and is now one of eight hundred places in the world that have been honoured by UNESCO. Take some time here to explore the natural beauty of the area.

From there the tour continues to Gullfoss waterfall and the Haukadalur geothermal area, home to the famous Geysir and Strokkur hot springs.
