Hop on board a minibus for the essential Iceland experience: a tour of The Golden Circle. This journey will take you on a ride to Iceland’s most famous attractions, without the rush and hassle of the big buses.

This tour is for those who wants to immerse themselves in Icelandic culture; you will not only see main sights, you will also get to know Icelandic music and cuisine.

The tour starts in the morning when you are picked up by a small but comfortable minibus. You’ll then be driven to the south of Iceland to a little, hidden treasure called Faxi waterfall. Nestled in a quiet spot, not visible from the main road, Faxi is a low but wide waterfall, named after the mane of the Icelandic horse.

From the little Faxi, you’ll head towards the enormous and mighty Gullfoss. The glacial river Hvítá takes a dramatic 32-metre plunge into a canyon, creating this stunning and beautiful waterfall, one of Iceland’s most iconic attractions.

Next, you will visit the Geysir geothermal area. Located in Haukadalur valley, the ‘Great Geysir’ is a hot spring that’s been active for approximately 10,000 years.

Although Geysir is now mostly dormant, nearby is another geyser called Strokkur, which spouts water 10-15 metres up in the air every 10 minutes or so, giving you plenty of opportunities to capture the perfect photo.

The last part of the Golden Circle is the Þingvellir national park, a place of great historical and geographical significance. Þingvellir is where Iceland’s parliament, the Alþingi, was founded in the year 930, making it the oldest running parliament in the world. It is also a place where two tectonic plates are drifting apart, which can be seen in the cracks and rock fractions which traverse the region.

Along the way, your tour guide will not only tell you everything about the places you'll be visiting, he will also introduce you to Icelandic culture through music and give you samples of traditional Icelandic food and beverages.

You’ll listen to some of Iceland’s best musicians while travelling the Golden Circle. If you like the music, you’ll be able to find it right away on Spotify with the free wifi on board the minibus. This way you can relive the experience when you get back home.

Don’t miss out on a unique and first-hand introduction to Iceland through this fascinating day tour! Check availability by choosing a date.

Awesome tour. Tomas knows quite a bit about the city. Was very informative and fun. Lots of history and tips about and for Reykjavik. Highly recommend!

Your Day Tours was an excellent company and I had a great experience. The tour guide Avur was so friendly, and despite a bus stop mishap, the company was so accommodating in making sure we got to join the group. Would definitely recommend!

We really enjoyed the Golden Circle Tour with Bara. One of the highlights of our trip. Getting to sit back enjoy the beautiful countryside while hearing a mix of Icelandic history and music is such a great introduction to Iceland. We took some amazing photos and really enjoyed our lunch stop mid day. Highly recommend this tour!

This Golden Circle Tour (led by Siggi) in March 2018 was well organized and went to each of the sights listed with ease. While I understand the need to stay on schedule, it felt a little rushed and we were given constant reminders about the time we are meeting and to not be late. There wasn't flexibility at all, which for me personally is a downside of a guided tour. Siggi was very animated and told stores, gave lots of info, played Icelandic music. With that being said, we realized we totally could have driven the Golden Circle sights on our own with our car rental. Directions are simple, parking is easy, roads are in good condition, and you can have more flexibility. However, if you don't want to make all that effort, then this tour is good! Beautiful sights! Nice touch at the end that Siggi offered to drop each passenger at a location of their choice.

This tour was perfect! Aevar our guide was really funny and full of nice stories about him and Iceland. Sometimes he let the icelandic music talk...magic moments! The landscape was amazing and we had enough time to discover by ourselves. Our guide showed us a farm with horses and sheeps (it was a bonus.) Our 7years old boy loved it! I warmly recommend this tour!!!

We had a great time with our tour guide Kevin who was funny and knowledgeable ! Great sights and a fun day seeing Iceland! Strongly recommend this tour!!

I would highly recommend this tour . I visited Iceland in late February and done the golden circle tour. Our guide was gusti who was an excellent driver and very funny. His knowledge of Iceland was excellent and the way he done the tour from start to finish was very professional. Thank you gusti for a fantastic experience. Hope I spelt your name correctly. Scott

We did the Golden Circle tour with GtI. It was amazingly customer oriented, as the tour folks had to pick us to catch the tour bus because we missed the bus by a few minutes. With family, it was great to see such a hospitality. Our tour guide/driver was extremely passionate about Iceland and very knowledgeable with great sense of humour. He explained the sceneries, spots and history with great panache. I strongly recommend GtI tours. Have a nice time!

Our tour guide for Your Day Tours which is a new company was phenomenal. The guide was safe and knowledgeable and enjoyed being our guide which made our trip enjoyable. We had our trip the 13th of February and there was a great deal of snow that day, nonetheless we covered all the places to see and had an explanation of what we were seeing as well as the countryside. The bus was comfortable and did indeed have free wi fi . Would highly recommend this company.

What a glorious, sunny day we had at the Golden Circle! There was a lot of snow due to a blizzard the day before. The guide Lasma was lovely and very informative on the nature and culture of Iceland. The Gullfoss waterfall was particularly impressive. Our guide gave us some traditional Icelandic food and drink which was a nice touch. I would definitely recommend travelling in a minibus rather than a coach as it was much more personal and intimate as well as faster. Thouroughly enjoyed it!

We joined the golden circle day tour, it's an amazing well-organized trip.

Our guide Garpur was amazing. He took us to cool places in Iceland and provided us with good insights and facts about the country. The weather cooperated with us so we were able to go through all the mentioned destinations plus, we also had a tase of Icelandic food. I would totally recommend this tour if you want to do the Golden Circle tour minus the big bus groups.

The tour was amazing!! Our driver/guide was so knowledgeable and made all of the information extremely interesting and relevant. It was a mini bus, so not a huge group which was extremely nice. The sights were beautiful, the bus was comfortable, there was free wifi, a taste of Icelandic food and Icelandic music, and just all around a great day! Would highly recommend this tour and company!

We went on the golden circle tour on Tuesday. Our guide was Ævar and he was excellent. He talked to us throughout the journey and provided us with plenty interesting facts about the places we were passing through as well as Iceland as a country. The weather was particularly bad on the day we went on this tour but the guide got us around safely in the heavy snow and strong winds. We went on several tours during our stay in Iceland with various tour providers (the others being much larger companies) but this one was by far the best!

This was a great tour. Our guide Maki was really great about filling us in on the spots we were visiting and what we were passing by along the way. We made all the big stops and had plenty of time to see and take pictures of all we saw.

An amazing tour. Our tour guide and mini bus driver Magnus was warm, funny, incredibly knowledgeable and first class. I cannot rate the tour we had highly enough.

Such an awesome tour! Our tour guide with Your Day Tours was amazing. Lasma was so sweet and gave us some traditional Icelandic food/drink and we listened to Icelandic music. We ended up being in a snow storm so our tour went for quite a few hours longer than it should have but that was no fault of the tour guide and she was so good through the whole ideal. I’ve never experienced snow or a snow storm before so I actually enjoyed the whole experience! The sights were great and would definitely recommend!

Our experience was amazing we loved the whole tour. Guide/driver was so nice and knowledgeable we learned so much about Iceland and the people nothing was rushed and everything explained. We even got a little extra by visiting a farm to see those wonderful Icelandic horses and sheep which was awesome. The sights where breathtaking, the National Park just amazing covered in snow. Definitely recommend doing this tour. We loved every moment in Iceland and will be back to do this tour again....

The tour was amazing. Tour guide was very informational and made the experience enjoyable. The views were outstanding and breathtaking. Absolutely recommend this tour

tour guide has been very nice, and given us attractive introduction to each sightseeing; also shared us icelandic traditional food and drinks and liquorice candy; patient and controlled time very reasonably. We got a sunny day luckily, and the waterfall, snow mountain, geyser and national park are amazing in sunlight. Great recommendation!

You won’t be disappointed. Golden Circle tour was fantastic. It’s comfortable informative and the scenery is breathtaking.

The tour was fantastic! Amazing landscapes in the most wintery experience ever (it was December). Our friendly guide Brahim provided very enriching explanations about the geology of the area and also about Icelandic history and culture. I learnt a lot from him that I cold tell back home ;-). I can definitely recommend this tour

Phenomenal ........ Our guide was amazing and so knowledgable. We learnt so much about Iceland. We were travelling with our 8 and 10 year old so the bus was perfect for them to nap along the way while we enjoyed the commentary. Our guide even let them stay on the bus while we walked for 20 mins at 1 of the stops. The Icelandic Lamb soup was absolutely delicious

This was a wonderful trip, although daytime was pretty short when we got Iceland in December, our tour guide "Soldier" ( Sorry I don't know how to spell his Icelandic name) gave us exceptional experience through 8-hour bus trip. Highly recommend this trip to everyone!!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our very COLD day touring this gorgeous area! Our guide, Brahim, could not have been nicer or more informed about everything we were seeing, and we learned a great deal from him. We did not miss a site listed on the itinerary, and we even stopped to pet and feed treats to a group of adorable Icelandic horses. I loved that!! We had plenty of time at each stop to take photos and explore a bit. Our mini-bus was comfortable, warm and cozy, and that was most appreciated on such an unusually chilly day. My husband and I loved the smoked lamb treat and the malt beverage offered, and we were inspired to eat and drink both again during our week in Iceland. Thanks for nice perk! We can highly recommend Your Day Tours and this experience!

I would highly recommend booking Iceland tours through Guide to Iceland. The Golden Circle minibus tour was incredible with amazing sights at every stop! Even with the limited daylight, we were able to have enough time at each location. Our guide was very knowledgeable about Iceland and was at our pick up spot right on time. Iceland is an amazing place to visit with some of the most beautiful sights, especially in wintertime. I would recommend this company.

The coach picked us up at the correct place, However there's so many companies so be aware of which one you book through to get on the correct one. The experience itself was incredible and the guide/ driver knew exactly what to say and when. He made us laugh and told many stories to us too. A great trip

Brahim was very prompt, cordial, respectful, and very knowledgeable. He provided us with engaging facts and historical accounts that make Iceland what it is today. He obviously care about his job and our satisfaction as tourists - when 2 in our group went "missing" he literally spent about 30 minutes looking for them inside the restaurant and around the geyser area. He was also very considerate of those that threw up in the bus as well as those who could not walk to the beautiful sights - he would park closer to the scenic wonders just to make the distance of the walk shorter!

Our tour guide was Ævör, he was fantastically funny and had us laughing a lot. He's full of entertaining tales of growing up in Iceland, the local quirks and history of Iceland. The minibus was comfortable (I'm 6'3" and had no complaint), the wifi was a nice bonus. Ævör gave us some local drink, Malt. It's a rather odd taste but liked it. The local music was great, Ævör and I had a good chat about Sigur Ros at one of the stops (any Sigur Ros fans will notice the ágætis byrjun tattoo on his forearm). The tour has amazing stops and staggeringly beautiful scenery. Especially Þingvellir, we could have spent hours there. We used three companies for four tours during our holiday, Your Day Tours is undoubtedly the best by miles. I can't recommend them, and Ævör, enough!

Gusti, our tour guide, was excellent - he provided a wealth of information about Icelandic culture and history, as well as life for the locals - I highly recommend this tour!

Amazing tour, amazing day. The drive through the Golden Circle was very comfortable; our guide, Lasma, is an amazingly kind person, giving a lot of information and useful tips. Words cannot describe the beauty of the Golden Circle landscape. A great experience!!

We really enjoyed this tour. The guide, Siggy, was really fun, with great stories. He was also very knowledgeable and gave us an insight into lots of interesting subjects about Iceland generally and the places we were visiting. The tour was very well organised too. Missing as much of the crowds as possible. Overall the day was a great experience. I wish we had done all the tours with Your Day Tours

We had an absolutely excellent tour of the Golden Circle with Gusti of Your Day Tours. We were picked up promptly and the entire tour was very well organized as well as slightly adjusted to accommodate the threatening rain. Gusti was not only very informative but also engaging, friendly and entertaining. He kept the tour running smoothly and on time while allowing us adequate time to view all of the sights and have time for a lunch break with advice on the best foods available at each stop. We were also treated to an extra stop, an amazing panoramic mountain top view which he said he hoped would compensate for the dismal weather at the beginning of the tour. I cannot recommend this tour enough. The small tour bus was comfortable and we were well informed of not only the sights, but also many aspects of Icelandic culture as we travelled. I am so happy that we chose Your Day Tours as our tour provider for not only this tour, but also the South Coast Tour which we will be taking tomorrow.

Our guide, Ivan, had a very pleasant voice and I enjoyed hearing stories from his Icelandic upbringing, from the uniquely strange festivals that occur, to the story told to him as a boy of the baby that was swapped for the elf husband. I only wish that there was a bit more information given at Thingvellir park, as far as the science behind the plate tectonics. The mini bus was a bit cramped for my liking, as my knees were pressed into the seat in front of me (I'm 5'6"). The tour had a lovely, smooth, gait (like your horses!) and the Icelandic music made the drive so enjoyable. It was an authentic Iceland experience through and through and will certainly look up Your Day Tours for subsequent touring in the future!

Tour guide is fun and full of ancedotes. Pick up is on time and the schedule is well planned, not too hurried but still gives us ample time to fully appreciate the spots. Highly recommended tour!

Amazing tour, everything was great , I recommend it

Your Day Tours is amazing. And our guide Ævar was great. My girlfriend and i got to see the sites at the Golden Cirlce tour without feeling rushed. We enjoyed every minute of it, when we weren't taking photos and looking at beautiful places and landscapes, we were laughing a lot with Ævar's jokes. He made our trip unforgettable. What else can i say, if your going to Iceland and you're looking for the best Golden Circle tour, this is the one.

Great tour! Great tour guide! Didn't feel rushed at all. Very knowledgeable.

Amazing! Siggi was absolutely the best- hit all of the high spots in a brief amount but yet just enough time - answered our questions added some humor and gave us a great experience- I strongly recommend this tour

Amazing! Ingo was extremely knowledgeable about the glacier and the cave! The whole day ran very smoothly, proper equipment was provided, the truck ride up to the cave was exciting, and the cave itself was a great adventure. Amazing for pictures!

Very good tour! And "Addi", our guide was the best guide ever! She was very clear (easy to understand), told us a lot of interesting stuff, and she had a wonderful humor! Very informative and interesting tour, I Can recomand this tour for everyone, Heidi

I booked this tour thinking it went to the crater, so was initially disappointed (it was my mistake)- however, the small bus & informative / entertaining guide made it well worth it. It was also neat to have music playing on the bus and I appreciated the taste of traditional icelandic food & drink (although I had accidentally bought a bunch of smoked lamb two weeks prior, so that was no new taste... still good). I would definitely recommend this company for tours.

Just wonderful. Informative and with humor. The sites are magnificent and having Gusto show us around and tell us about life in Iceland and its interesting history was a treat. This is a must do tour! Also liked the smaller bus.

Good tour. Our tour guide was fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Gullfoss and Geysir/Strokkur. It started raining by the time we went to Thingvellir, but otherwise the tour overall was quite memorable. Some of the other tours we went for were more exciting, I must say, such as Snaefellsness, South Coast and Jokulsarlon. Nonetheless, Golden Circle is a good way to start seeing Iceland. Certainly worth the price paid, especially with such a great tour guide.

The tour is very enjoyable. Whether you are in Iceland for only a few days or a week or more, it is a must-do, perhaps the first tour you should do after the Reykjavik city walk. It gives you a good feel for the Icelandic landscape. While Geysir and Gullfoss will be highlights for many, Thingpellir state park was also fascinating for its historical roots and symbolism, as well as being a place to observe the separation of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Our guide (sorry I cannot remember her name) was very knowledgeable and kept us informed throughout, but also had the good judgement not to overload us too much!

The tour guide is very nice. Know a lot about Iceland from her presentation. The tour covers major tourism spots. Highly recommend.

This tour with Your Day Tours was wonderful! Got to see all the major sites and we weren't rushed. The guide was funny, accommodating and knowledgeable about both Icelandic culture and the sites we were seeing. Would highly recommend for those looking for a great time in Iceland!

It was enjoyable tour , but our guide was very strict about time so i got some pressure but the journey itself was amazing

We did the Golden Circle your with the company, Your Day Tour. The trip was great and our guide, Gusti, was knowledgeable, informative, and great to have. Would recommend it to everyone.

Good tour and our guide was awesome. And he even got us some Irish snacks and drinks!

This was a fantastic way to see the Golden Circle in 1 day. Taking the minibus makes it so much more manageable and personal. This made it easy to gather everyone at certain times so we can timely get to our next destination. We got a great tour by Isor who was knowledgeable and quite funny. He took us to two waterfalls, a Geyser, where the tectonic plates of Eurasia and North America meet and beautiful Icelandic horses. Great day.

Despite being quite well-travelled it was my first proper tour ever and I only took it because I don't drive and public transportation would not really work with these locations so I had to succumb. I'm really glad that I chose this tour though because the minivan really makes a difference, despite all the beautiful places we went to it would not have felt half as nice had it been a big bus full of tourists, this felt more personal. Our driver/tour guide was a cool chap related to a bunch of royals including the Queen (!) who cracked some nice jokes, made the van roar with laughter at his American impressions and told us quite a bit about iceland and played some nice icelandic tunes. We got to drink some non alcoholic icelandic drink which was quite nice and there was also some infamous lamb to be eaten as well. Had a lot of fun, thank you, your majesty!

Marvellous way to get a taste of the beauty of Iceland, its waterfalls, hot springs and fascinating geology. Our guide kept us entertained and well informed throughout, and also gave us some insight into the character and lifestyle of the Icelandic people. Highlight for me would be the incredible Pingvellir national park, the geographical and historical significance of which is awe-inspiring.

The must-see tour when in Iceland and Your Day Tours is certainly the best company to choose for it. Your Day Tours is a young, family-owned company which makes the tour more special and intimate. Our guide (one of the founders) was very entertaining and knowledgeable, we learned so much about Iceland and its people during that day. We also made some additional stops on the way, and overall just a stunning landscape - definitely recommend.

This was an amazing way to see some of the great natural beauties of Iceland! Our tour guide was very informative and funny, this tour is a great value for the price. I would recommend this to anyone visiting!

This tour had a very personal feel - our guide, "Kevin" (I don't remember his Icelandic name) provided a nice overview of information about Iceland, but also personal details about his family and Icelandic culture - which were quite fascinating! I'm so glad we were on a small tour vs. a large coach - made the experience enjoyable. We had plenty of time to explore, never felt rushed or like we were part of a herd... lol

Really great tour! We went on a few different tours on our trip and this was our favourite. Nice balance between fun and informative and no rush at each stop. Siggi the guide was fab!

Great tour. Picked us up at our guesthouse without a problem. Guide/Owner was amazing. I thought maybe my 18 year old daughter would not be as thrilled as I was about the tour but she loved it. I would highly recommend this tour.

Excellent! A great way to see some of the fabulous highlights of Reykjavik! Garpor was an amazing guide and provided lots of great information and funny stories. I would highly recommend this tour

We had a great time on our Golden Circle Tour with Garpur/Kevin, and they handled a slight hiccup with the van with great aplomb, getting us onto a replacement bus asap and hardly any time lost. We had just enough time at each stop, not too long and not too short, and were well entertained and informed along the way. We were very glad to be in a minivan, which was so much nicer in all ways compared to a big bus.

This was an amazing tour. YourDayTours is a family run business of father and three sons. Bothe (sic) was an excellent tour guide who was very passionate and knowledgable about Iceland. He taught us a lot about what we were seeing but also very interesting facts about Iceland, Icelandic people and life in Iceland. We were a small group on a small, comfortable bus that had Wifi and even USB ports to charge your phone (we were on the newest bus they own). We listened to beautiful, relaxing Icelandic music and were even given a sample taste of an Icelandic drink and snack of smoked lamb Icelandic butter and bread that his father made for us that morning. The views from the bus and the sites we visited were breathtaking. . Keep in mind that you are on a tight schedule so there is limited time at each stop. Our tour guide was kind enough to add a stop so that we could pet Icelandic horses for five minutes. Even though we had a car I couldn't imagine trying to figure out where all those places were but esp not having a someone to give us such rich, helpful and interesting information. I would strongly recommend this tour.

Wonderful tour! I our guide was hilarious and had so much good information about the country. The bus was clean and comfortable enough. Very nice that it was a small one as well.

Amazing tour, highly recommend this tour. Nice small bus which I think makes the experience better. Picked up on time and loads of time in each stop, great day out and learnt loads of interesting information about Iceland.

I did this tour with the Your Day Tour Company. The driver was awesome, dont remember his name, i just know that he's from a island in the south. Its a must do tour in the iceland. I think we spent 6 hours and totally worth it.

I looked at other websites, tour companies and booking companies and decided on Your Day Tours for the Golden Circle. Our driver, August, who had just started with the company, was wonderful. He explained the areas we drove through, Icelandic history, Icelandic heritage and was entertaining. From the Owners to August, they made sure that we were taken care of from start to finish. Being a family run company, we like to support small business and they did a great job. We didn't have time to book other excursions, but when we return to Iceland, we will book with Your Day Tours again. Thank you for a memorable 14 year Anniversary trip!!

Ævar provided a full day of entertainment with lots of jokes, fun history, and brought some really good Iceland food samples. We rented a car and did everything else on our own but we heard this tour was worth it and it had such high reviews we decided to try it out. It was nice being able to sit back and enjoy the ride. Each location has the perfect amount of time to relax, take in the beauty, snap a few pics and explore. The onboard wifi was really nice to have as well. Book this tour!!!

We used this travel agency for Golden Circle tour. An amazing experience. Thank you for the wonderful day. Thank you to our tour guide Bára for having us called and picked up elsewhere in the city due to our delay in transfer from Keflavik to Reykjavik, Center Plaza Hotel. So we did not miss the tour. We appreciate your sympathy! Maria Vitoria Silva. Portugal.

The tour was amazing. Excellent guide, plenty of time, and pick up is just Perfect start. Will recommend this trip to anyone visiting Iceland :-)

The tour was great! Highly recommend for this small group minibus tour. Adequate time for each spot. The minibus was comfortable. The only thing was the lunch break was too short. The tour guide (I forgot his name, he said he's a film-maker) was very nice, though his English was not very good, and not very familiar with the places, at least he's nice and trying to help everyone of us, and leading to this wonderful tour.

This trip is so wonderful!! Highly recommend!! Our guide bára (I think) is very humorous and knowledgeable. She shared lots of interesting things about Iceland with us. Our group is very punctual, so she gave us two extra stops to see horses and cows. If you plan to visit golden circle, this tour definitely is the best.

Great introduction to Iceland and all it has to offer!

This tour was wonderful, very knowledgeable guide, gave so much good information during the tour. Loved all the stops, and was able to make an extra one to see Icelandic horses. The guides positive upbeat and greetings with a smile were contagious. Highly recommend!

We loved this tour. Addy was a great guide who's knowledge of her country and passion for her it really came through making this trip delightful. She prepared us well for each place we visited and gave us good advice on do's and don'ts. Her enthusiasm was contagious, I am so happy that we signed up for this.

Brilliant tour. Addy was a lovely guide; she had a wide knowledge base and answered stuff about everything! Her perpetual smile and handy tips on the best things to see made it super enjoyable. Would definitely recommend!

I had a great time on this tour with guide Peter- he was informative and the whole tour was both fun and relaxing! The small bus and the way the tour is constructed are both a big plus. Would definitely reccomend!!!

Very nice vehicle, great guide, informative and timely. Highly recommend this company. Our guide Lasma.

A great tour led by Bara on 22/2/17, friendly and knowledgeable without bombarding us with information. Picked up from the hotel on time. A mini-bus of tourists, rather than a huge bus made it much more friendly. The drive away from Reykjavik over the mountains as the sun rose was spectacular. Faxi waterfall was followed by Gullfoss - wow. Geysir was next which included time for lunch. We had soup from the vegetarian soup café which was really nice. Loved watching the Strokkur geysir erupt regular as clockwork. Our walk through the national park on the mid-atlantic ridge in a snowstorm was brilliant .

It was amazing!! We had just to wait a little more than expected (30 minutes instead of 20 minutes) but it was still great.

Professional guide, awesome trip!

I really enjoy this small group tour. This was fantastic! Our guide Poára was nice and helpful. She recommended us to join the Aurora tour after this tour because the weather was good that day and have higher chance to see it. We saw the Aurora eventually and it was absolutely amazing. Big thank you to Poára :) and I love the Icelandic music and snack and drink. Really had a good time in this trip. Highly recommended!

From start to finish this tour covered everything they said they would. On schedule to every stop to allow us to have a good amount of time to take in the breathtaking views. 'Kevin' (Icelandic name I can't remember, but told us his name was Kevin in English lol) our tour guide for the day made it very enjoyable and had a great sense of knowledge of the areas we visited and a very good personality to make us feel welcome onto the minibus. Made it very personal being in a smaller group excursion to interact with us all and made sure we were ahead of all the big tour buses and that we were comfortable. He was on time with picking everyone up and getting us back safely and even had a few extra stops due to us being on time back to the minibus which meant we could stop at 2 farms, 1 with live cattle to pet and feed (sheep and horses) also another farm to taste some Icelandic ice cream with a greet and meet from the farm dogs who were not scared to jump onto the bus and say hello! All round great trip and will leave a smile on your face at the end of the day. Wifi on the bus and a beverage/flatbread to try out to! Worth every krona! Highly recommended!

I was in Iceland two years ago and took a Golden Circle tour with a big tour company. With the big tour companies, the tour was good but it seemed very impersonal. That is not the case with Your Day Tours. The tour guides were personable and with the smaller bus and smaller group, there were many places we were able to stop that the big bus tours couldn't go. The tour bus allows you a good vantage point from any spot in the bus. The tour guides were approachable and very helpful. I would highly recommend Your Day Tours to anyone going to Iceland and looking for an informative and thoughtful tour.

Our guide was great and we got to see some beautiful waterfalls! It's a long day but definitely worth it!

What an amazing trip we had! Logi was our very entertaining tour guide/driver with a good playlist. My husband and I really enjoyed this tour, our minibus was completely full, we were sitting way in the back, it did feel a little cramped at times. There's free wifi on the bus, and plenty of bathroom breaks -- I'm 6 months pregnant and had no issues. I would defiantly recommend this tour to all. Although my husband and I packed sandwiches for lunch, there are plenty of options for lunch -- a soup place, nicer sit-down restaurant and a fast food (burgers & fries) option. All of the sights were beyond beautiful, despite the crazy weather! We were able to take some really great photos, that we'll always have to remember our trip by.

I really enjoyed this trip! Our guide Bothi (not sure if you write it like that) talked about his country with pride and passion and I learned very interesting things about it. Loved the music, I even follow their playlist in sopotify now and the places we visited were breathtaking, I fell in love with Gulfoss waterfall, I really recommend this tour, I had a great time! Thanks Yourdaytours!

Very much enjoyed this tour! BaÞe our guide was incredibly nice and is very passionate about Iceland! Gulfloss was one of the highlights of my trip to Iceland, highly recommend :)

Amazing trip! Our tour guide was very friendly and well informed. During the trip I learnt a lot about the iceland and its people. I love the fact that this is a family run business with an individual approach. Highly recommend it! Thank you very much for very enjoyable day!

Our guide Magnus was very knowlegable and funny, The weather was nice the whole day (a rarity in Iceland) and we had lots of time at the stops. I liked the minibus compared to the giant buses. It was slippery by the geyser so wear proper footwear.

This tour was fantastic! Our guide Bàra was wonderful, very personable and knowledgeable. The weather was pretty bad but she really helped us make the best of it and made sure we could navigate all the areas safely in the weather. The bus was very comfortable and with the tour being so small there was no waiting around for people to load/unload or come back to the bus so we could move on. We saw everything listed and then some. Would do this again in a heartbeat! Not to be missed!

We had an excellent experience with our tour guide, Bodi! He was so informative and personable, and the minibus was quite comfortable. A highlight, in addition to the beautiful sights, were the traditional Icelandic bites and drink he provided us. The music he played during the drive was also a welcomed touch.

Did the tour on Friday 13th January, was an amazing tour, it felt very personal as it was on a minibus and not a big coach like other tours. Our Guide, Bodi, was brilliant, he gave a very personable talk throughout the day, brought samplesof his dad's smoked lamb and played some of his favourite tunes in the minibus. It was an early start but meant we beat the big groups to the spots and we got plenty of time to explore. Would recommend this tour above any other - I did a big coach tour with a rival which wasn't good - felt like cattle being herded around - and another minibus operator tour - which lacked the personal touch that you get with Your Tours. Don't hesitate, just book this tour!!!

This is an amazing tour!

amazing tour. unfortunately the weather wasnt the best but our tour guide Garpur made sure we saw all the sights. he was very knowledgeable and told us alot about iceland and its history. quite funny too. cant fault the trip. would definitely rebook with Your Day Tours again!

A very good tour indeed! We went on the 12th December to check out what the golden circle had to offer! Turns out there was a lot to see and watch! Garpur was highly knowledgeable, very friendly and kind to all the travellers! He didn't even mind when we were a few mins late at a meeting point to move on to the next part of the tour! I could not fault anything with the tour, it went very smoothly indeed!

Awesome tour! The bus was prompt at picking me up at my hotel and the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. She explained what the day would entail and what she would be discussing. The weather was absolutely perfect! It was my last full day in Iceland and it couldn't have been a better way to conclude my trip. Absolutely breathtaking! I was able to capture the Geysir erupting a few times! Everything was just perfect from the waterfalls to the Geysirs and the landscape that accompanied our journey. Wonderful tour company; personal, intimate, knowledgeable and skilled. Cannot recommend them and the tour enough! I intend to go back in the Spring or Summer at some point and will definitely be using Your Day Tours

A great tour with all the famous views of the golden circle, will definitely recommend this trip and the company.

A great tour with all the popular sights, but much better due travelling on a mini bus. Would have just preferred a little more time at the Þingvellir National Park, up be able to walk all the way to the church. Our guide was informative and drove very carefully in the horrid weather conditions!
