Full description
Discover the extraordinary sights and natural wonders of Iceland’s geothermal Geysir area, and see active geysers and cascading waterfalls along the way. The tour starts at Geysir where you can see spouting hot springs, including the most active geyser in Iceland Strokkur. Continue across the torrid landscape to Gullfoss, where you can stand next to an amazing waterfall as enormous quantities of water tumble violently into a deep, meandering gorge. Spend some time exploring a cross-section of Iceland's natural wonders and geological phenomena at Thingvellir National Park, an area of such historic and geological significance it was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004. Learn about the open-air assembly of Althing and how the landscape was husbanded over 1,000 years. See the dramatic fissures and rifts in the landscape caused by dramatic volcanic activity throughout history.

I had an ankle that needed babying so signed up for an express tour rather than a longer one - it did not disappoint! Comfy coach transport with big windows and usb chargers, a great driver, and a guide who was both informative and humourous. Enough time at each stop to view the site and amenities, and back in time for dinner. Perfect!

Amazing excursion! Our tour guide Jona was very informative, funny and energetic. Driver Mikael (spelling?) did a superb job keeping us safe and ensuring we get to our stops on time. We visited all the sites promised in the tour's description, plus a bonus stop. Sufficient time was given at all stops.

We had an amazing time on our half day golden circle coach tour. Our guide Herschal was kind, funny and gave the best tour I've been on in a long time. Told us lots of random facts about Iceland and facts about the volcanoes, geysirs and the waterfalls. Very knowledgeable. I would love to return and have him as out guide again!
