Full description
Take a full-day tour of the Golden Circle to discover Iceland’s most iconic sites, then enjoy a relaxing dip in the Blue Lagoon. Travel in a comfortable bus with Wi-Fi connected tablets for each guest providing a continuous stream of relevant information via a GPS synced audio guide.

Depart from Reykjavik and drive for about 45-60 minutes to visit the Thingvellir Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage site home to the largest freshwater lake in Iceland.

Great day out. In hindsight I would have preferred to have done the Blue Lagoon on a separate tour as we felt pretty tired after being out on the rest of the tour for 7 hours. We then had an hour’s wait back in Reykjavík until our coach departed for the lagoon.

Fantastic tour. Although self guided with a tablet the bus tour guide added lots of interesting information too and was really funny too. Sights were stunning. Coach comfortable with USB ports for charging phones. A word of warning - although there is an option for hotel pick up, CHECK, as some streets in Reykjavik don’t allow even mini buses to go down them so you may have to go to a numbered pickup point which are generally not far. You should get an email stating where pick up will be from. Do check. We didn’t realise so missed the tour on the day we booked however they were brilliant at rebooking it for us so we ended doing the Blue Lagoon on one day and the Golden Circle the following day.

you have got to be outside the hotel when they state. I was, then i had to pop to the loo. Bus arrived my friends told the driver but he drove off. Had to get the Hotel reception to call the company and another mini coach came to pick us up. Bit traumatic. Few people didn't understand what the courier said and missed the coach at a place called the drowning pool. We had to go back and collect them. After the tour they drop you off at your hotel and collect you later for the Blue Lagoon visit
