What to expect
Be ready for convenient pickup at your Reykjavik accommodations. Board a comfortable bus and find your seat, equipped with Wi-Fi and a USB charger. Each seat also comes equipped with a tablet, which provides GPS-sensitive audio guides in several languages.  The UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park is the first stop. There, learn about the Althing, one of the world's oldest parliaments. The park is also home to the location where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates have been dramatically pulled apart; the rift makes great photos.  Continue to Geysir geothermal area, where you visit the very active Strokkur geyser. Take a walk around the Gullfoss Waterfall, where runoff from the Hvítá glacial river drops over two levels into a canyon.  To keep exploring the rugged terrain of the central highlands, hop aboard a custom super-truck bound for the snowmobile base camp at the foot of the Langjökull Glacier. There, transfer to a snowmobile to ride across the snow and ice fields of the white wilderness. After a day of adventure, relax onboard the bus as you're whisked back to Reykjavik and dropped off in the evening.

Golden Circle and Snowmobiles
Feb 2020 • Family
Booked the golden circle with snowmobiles. We were picked up from bus stop 3. The information on the intinary was pick up 7:30 30 mins before the tour commenced at 8am. The bus was usually 30mins late and you have to be viglent if you get local pick up as it sometimes not clear which bus you need to get on. Sometimes it was a coach and other times it was the smart green bus. This time it was the smart green bus.

The coach we travelled in was warm, had WiFi and USB charging ports, perfect when travelling with kids. The tour guide was really informative for adults.

You got enough time to wander around each site, although the first one we popped to the loo and ended up being the last on the coach. At the 2nd stop we had slightly longer to accommodate lunch. We ate at the cafe and it was expensive but the soup was delicious.

We had to transfer to another bus that took us up to the snowmobiling centre. Kids loved the huge wheels and the slightly bumpy ride in places.

At the snowmobiling centre we were handed warm overalls suitable for the conditions, helmets and you could borrow gloves. We drove for approx 30mins had a stop and then drove back.

Overall a really enjoyable tour, it was 11 hours in total and we took lots of snacks and drinks with us.

We went in the winter and I would definitely recommend waterproofs. We packed a rucksack with waterproofs and we are glad we did as the weather turned at the last stop.

Tour was really well organised. Thank you very much.

Golden Circle and Glacier Tour
Feb 2020
Pick up direct from the Hotel - Just brilliant!
Coaches were clean, tidy with USB when things need recharging and also WiFi.
Our tour guide Karen was great, friendly, fun, helpful and very informative!
Our tour was seamless, no issues all day just a passenger that was late back!
National Park, Geysir, waterfall.........
And the best thing....snowmobiling on the glacier, just such an awesome thing to do!

Disappointing customer service
Jan 2020
When we booked the tour, it didn't include a hotel pick up so we added this on via the company - Reykjavik Sightseeing. We booked the pick up for 7.15am to make sure we were there and on the coach by 7.45 as advised. A pick up bus turned up at 7.50am and we assumed it was ours, however, the bus driver did not have our names on the list but after we showed our confirmation he let us stay on...thank god!! We got on the coach at the bus hostel and set of to Thingvellir National Park but it was pitch black when we got there so couldn't see anything which they don't tell you until you have set off.

We then travelled to Strokkur to see the hot springs and Strokkur Geyser, this part was amazing and the tour guide for this part was lovely. We were here for 1hour and 30m as this was our lunch stop too. We headed for Gullfoss waterfall where the group was split into 2, 17 of us went off to snowmobile and the others were looking at the waterfall and then heading back to Reykjavik. We got on a monster truck to take us to the glacier, about 1 hour from the waterfall. When you arrive, you put the gear on, watch how to use the snowmobile and get around 1 hour on the snowmobiles and can alternate drivers. This bit was incredible!! The sights were amazing.

We went back to the waterfall and were told we will arrive back between 4.15/4.30 and to be back on a coach by 5pm. It was a different coach but had our sign in, so all 17 of us were there at 5pm only to be greeted by a very rude and unpleasant driver who wouldn't let us on the coach until the first group had got on and there was room for us. We had paid £190.00 each for this and we were being told there might not be room for us to get back!! The tour guide then turned up at 5.15pm after we had waited outside the coach in -8 temperatures and told us not get angry. We were eventually allowed on the coach. You can do the same tour with the snowmobiling with a company called Reykjavik Excursions who we did other tours with and they were fantastic, always on time and easy to get in contact with so I would recommend to go with them instead.

Dec 2019 • Family
The things you don’t get told about this tour ! The first stop in national park they drop you off for 40 minutes and it’s pitch black ? The guide was left uncomfortable dropping a bus full of people of here. Next stop geyser this you can see. You then join up with lots of other people to get another bus to the snowmobile. It is not just your bus there are lots and lots of people and this bit takes about 4 hours. Snowmobile is also in daylight unfortunately it was a white out and we could only see a few feet in front of us . If your lucky you might get back to Gullfoss before it’s to dark to see again. We had 5 minutes here before it became to dark . Then you have. 2 hour trip back on the bottom of the golden circle tour and you can’t see anything. This is a geyser and snowmobile tour. You will not see the golden circle in December. I emailed the company asking why they put this tour on they haven’t responded. It was disappointing.

Dear Trebor3017, We thank you for your review. We are sorry to learn about your experience with our company. Our goal is to provide an unforgettable experience to our customers and therefore we value every constructive comment that we receive. It is true that in the winter time, we do have a short window of daylight to work with. When residing on the Arctic Circle, life must go on. We feel this gives an authentic experience to what life is really like here, but can definitely understand the frustrations of the dark. This is our life 5 months of the year. We hope your stay in Iceland was otherwise enjoyable. Kind regards, The Reykjavik Sightseeing Team

I didn't know what to expect when i had to wake up at 6am to get ready and get picked up by 8am but the service came earlier than the scheduled time which was ok, they made sure that we was on the coach, the sites were amazing once we got to the Þingvellir National Park in the early hours of the morning, it was beautiful because we got to see the sun rise and the view is amazing and learning the history of the park also.. we then took another trip to the Geysir hot springs which was amazing seeing the hot water and all hot springs too, then they took us to Gullfoss Waterfall but for us we had to wait to see the waterfall because we had the snowmobiling experience in our package so mountaineers took us to the high snow mountains which were beautiful in the sunlight and there we had the snowmobile ride which was amazing seeing the Iceland and its beaut. we took some amazing pictures and there was no problems with the staff, they were all friendly and willing to help. i took some pics of the whole group which i will share with them. i would recommend this package to anyone who wants to visit Iceland, Thank you Rejkjavik Sightseeing and Mountaineers for a wonderful experience

Unforgettable tour
It's hard to find any fault at all with this tour. Picked up in a mini bus and dropped off at the waiting tour bus, ran like clockwork. The driver was capable and the tour guide was speaking in perfect English with an Icelandic twist, he was funny and knowledgeable, couldn't have asked for anything more. The golden circle tour shows you some great sights, plenty of time for photos. The snowmobiles, although an expensive addition to the tour was incredible, how often can you snowmobile over a glacier? Absolutely worth it. It was a long old day, but the memories and photos will last a lifetime. The way back was as expected, and a waiting shuttle bus to take us back to our stop. Extremely highly recommended.

Golden circle and Galacier Snowmobile trip.
Jan 2019
The Golden Circle is a must do trip. If you are travelling in the winter months you will have to go on an organised trip because of the snow on the roads. But it is very accessible at other times in a hire car. The natural views ( national park, water falls and Geysers ) are a must see in Iceland. The snowmobile adds another £110 to any organised trip. You are taken by Monster trunk another hour away from the Water falls onto the Glazier. You get all the gear ( gloves, suit and a free Hot chocolate ! ) You ride the Snowmobile up onto the glazier in 25mins stay for 20mins and them ride back. Fairly difficult the steer if heavy snow but a great experience. Then taken an hour back to the Falls to finish your trip.

Dec 2018 • Friends
The golden circle is fabulous! We did the tour which included a snowmobile ride - totally worth the extra money! The views were unparalleled and to be on top of a glacier was just incredible! The snowmobile ride was so thrilling. So much fun! Highly recommend doing this when in Iceland!
