Awesome tour
Oct 2021 • Solo
I loved this tour so many breath taking destinations. The tour guide was great I can’t remember her name but it started with a P. She took us to an extra stop one of her favorites a little farm with an adorable sheep dog. Was able to get a lucky horse shoe too there. Another secret stop she took us but this one is secret can’t tell you. She was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of information on the history in Iceland. Kept everyone on the bus entertained. I miss her and I miss Iceland.

Perfect Day Tour around The Golden Circle!
Perfect experience all around! Our guide Gusti was very knowledgeable and funny and played Icelandic music when we had some dead time in the bus and mixed in stories about the history, geology, and other interesting facts. The stops were really great! The waterfall is huge and a site to behold. The Geyser was fun and cool to see and the surrounding bubbling area was very cool too! We had a nice chance to see some Icelandic horses a long the way. Lunch at the geyser restaurant was fast and lots to choose from. Clean and nice bathrooms at every stop The minibus was fun too! I highly recommend this company and Gusti!

Excellent tour with Baldwin
Aug 2021
Highly recommend this tour - beautiful scenery and lots of time at the stops to view the waterfalls, geothermal area or National Park at your own pace. Our guide Baldwin was excellent! You will be very lucky to get on one of his tours. Gave us the history of Iceland and answered all our questions about Icelandic culture and customs. He helped us appreciate what we were seeing. He also pointed out good places for photos and is an excellent driver.

A Day Out with Magnus
Aug 2021
The only way to tour Iceland's many spectacular sights is in a small group with Your Day Tours. You'll never feel rushed; you'll have more than enough time to look around, take pictures, and just enjoy the breathtaking Icelandic countryside. Of course it helps when you have a great guide like Magnus. He's charismatic, knowledgeable, friendly, and funny. His bus was spotless, his commentary was brilliant, and he was always on time. (During the pick-ups he even doubled back to check on a no-show.) You should definitely do this tour. Do it now!

Awesome day tour of the Golden Circle
Aug 2021
It's not very often you head out on a day trip and the the owner of the tour company is your guide for the day. I got the chance to go around the Golden Circle with Bodi and that was a real treat. His enthusiasm for Iceland was contagious and I really enjoyed the stories and history he shared while we saw some gorgeous sites. He played some really great Icelandic music while we drove around which introduced me to some new artists. Had an awesome day!

Great Day!
Jul 2021
This tour was great. They were organized and timely with our pickup. Our driver was very energetic and we learned so much history about Iceland and the places we visited. I picked this tour because it provided more time at each of the sites than other tours. I'm glad we chose this tour over others. We were able to really enjoy each stop without feeling rushed. The Geysir Park stop was exceptional. We had enough time to see it erupt multiple times and also some time to walk around and look at the other boiling spots. We also got to see and pet some Icelandic horses at one of the stops! I would definitely recommend.

Tour of Golden Circle with YourDayTours
Aug 2021
Fantastic tour to beautiful and fascinating sites (Gullfoss, Geysir, and Þingvellir) with excellent guide (Gusti), a fount of knowledge and information about the history, geography, even modern technology (the harnessing of geothermal energy) of Iceland and very personable.
The touring was also well-paced between visits to site and time in between. I'd book YourDayTours anytime.

A Day out with Logi !
My wife and I had a most excellent experience and Day out with Logi , There was plenty to see from the National Park and Waterfalls to the Geysers. Our driver and guide Logi was full of knowledge and gave very interesting insights to the history and places we saw. I would whole heartedly recommend this tour without hesitation and you should request Logi !! Charming ,funny and extremely knowledgeable.
