What people are saying about Geysir

The Golden Circle Tour is amazing and the northern lights speak for themselves!! The guides are knowledgeable and provide heaps of information about Iceland and the surrounding area, which is awesome. The place you stop on the Golden Circle are beautiful. We had a such a great time!

Nice helpful guide and a beautiful tour. I wish there would have been a restroom stop at the Secret Lagoon. We were stopped long enough there to have been able to go. 2.5 hours with no restroom break is much too long (trip back to Reykjavik from Gullfoss). Otherwise all was good.

Tour guide was very fun, knowledgable, told us great facts/stories. The drive was very smooth and safe. The sites were great, could have done with a little more time at each place as at times felt very rushed.

It was a really well organised day. Every stop and visit had breathtaking scenery and photo opportunities. We were giving sufficient time at each location

Plenty of time at each site to fully appreciate it, take photos and have snacks. Beautiful views!
