Nothing but praise for Anton and his company! Having never been on a tour before, my husband and I didn't know what to expect. But this exceeded our expectations on all accounts. Anton was very punctual, picking us up right on time. The minibus was perfect and well maintained. He was very knowledgeable, easy to talk with and had us laughing. He made it personable and tailored the trip to what we were interested in. He took us to some spots not on the tour since we had extra time. He truly loves his job and Iceland and it is contagious. We loved every minute of the tour with Anton and hopefully, we will be back to explore more areas. So glad I stumbled upon BTI.
If you're thinking of booking this company - don't hesitate, do it! They were everything I was hoping to get when I booked our tours in Iceland. Our guide, Tommi, was an Iceland native and was so passionate about his country and sharing it with us and I felt this made an enormous difference to our experience (compared with our other tour company we went with where we didn't have a passionate guide). The best thing about the tours with this company is that you don't just stick to the standard itinerary, they will tailor the tour to your group and the weather conditions to give you the fullest and best experience they can. They also look after you really well and they taught us so much about Iceland. Read on Tripadvisor
On this Golden Circle Tour for Cruise Ships, you will experience all the best that Iceland has to offer. Everything between the mountains and the ocean: glacial rivers, beautiful landscapes, waterfalls, geothermal areas and wild Icelandic scenery.
We set off on this tour by traveling through mountains that separate Reykjavik area from the south. The drive itself will be a feast for your eyes. Lava fields, distant summits, geothermal plant spitting out huge columns of steam. Simply stunning!
Our first stop would be in Hveragerði when you can get some freshly brewed coffee and Icelandic sweets at a local bakery. In the same building, you can visit Earthquake Museum which simulates the earthquake that rolled over (under:) the south of Iceland in 2008.
Now we will be traveling through fields, meadows and be crossing few glacial rivers until we stop at beautiful Kerið, a volcanic crater lake. You can have a walk around the ridges or even go down and touch the gleaming surface of the water.
Travelling further on the Golden Circle route we will pass through few small villages like Borg and Reykholt and stop at first waterfall – Faxi. This not so famous waterfall is truly a gem of Icelandic nature. Here you can walk down to the river and forget yourself admiring the natural spectacle.
At Geysir, you will witness an eruption of hot water going almost 20 or so meters up into the air. The whole area is a geological wonder covered in steam coming from the geothermal activity – an experience you will never forget!
When visiting the Gullfoss waterfall you will be stunned by the scale of this famous waterfall. Many cascades of fast pacing water dropping down to a canyon while producing amazing rainbows (with the right weather) is just a jaw-dropping experience! This is also a great place for lunch and for shopping. We can recommend the traditional Icelandic soup (there is always an option without meat): it will keep you full and warm for the rest of the day.
Our last stop on Private Golden Circle Tour would be the famous Þingvellir. This is the oldest working parliament in the world. There you will walk on old battlegrounds where the Vikings fought among each other in countless battles. Þingvellir is also a place where 2 continents meet. Imagine yourself strolling through a canyon which walls are made from 2 tectonic plates: European and American. A truly remarkable experience!
After the last stop, we will drive to Reykjavik ( around 60 mins) and drop you off at the harbor.
