We had a great trip yesterday. It wasn’t the best weather but Iceland still looks stunning in the rain. Our tour guide Gummi was a lovely, extremely knowledgeable and interesting. Topping the tour off with the secret lagoon just made it even better. We would definitely recommend.

Amazing day tour around the golden circle.

Amazing day, absolutely stunning sites, good pace, good choice of stops and a lovely cafe stop for lunch where we could grab a delicious lamb soup. Ian (the guide) was very friendly and had buckets of knowledge about everything Icelandic, which he shared whilst driving (via a microphone). The group was very small on the day, which added to the personal feel of the tour. Worth every penny, highly recommended.

Taking a video of the Great Geyser erupting three times in 20 minutes was awesome. Our guide, Gummi, was exceptional. He was quite knowledgeable, a terrific cadence for a guide and even humorous at times.

Terrific Small Group Tour

We had Ian as our guide and he was just terrific. Excellent knowledge about the country. He filled us in continuously throughout our 8 hr day. I liked this tour because it was small group--11 ppl. We did not want a large tour because they can be annoying waiting for everyone, etc. Highly recommend this tour

This entire tour was perfect from start to finish, and Ian was the best driver. We were originally booked on another tour that got canceled and the Gateway to Iceland owner kindly switched us to this one, which we'd planned on doing later. It was incredible. Fresh air, wonderful sights, chill small group, tons of useful commentary and lots of time to stop and enjoy it all at each stop. Walking the rift, taking in the waterfall, eating tomato soup, and most surprisingly of all, the Secret Lagoon at the end was our absolute favorite. It left such an impression we wanted to go back immediately! It is clean, therapeutic, and organized. Plus, no crowds (at least in March). Gateway is a great group and we had such a wonderful experience. Ian also did an unforgettable Northern Lights tour for us that went above and beyond. Highly recommend!

What a fantastic time we had on the Hot Golden Circle tour, our guide Jacob was absolutely brilliant. He was so knowledgable, told us so many interesting facts along they way and was an extremely nice man. We had a flat tyre on the Heath, which Jacob handled so well, we were kept safe and calm the entire time and were rescued by a fellow tour guide. However it wasn't long before we were back on the road to carry on the tour. Excellent service, excellent knowledge and a fabulous day all round. Thanks for making our trip so memorable :)
