Full description
This full-day tour begins with a stop at Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and birthplace of the oldest existing parliament in the world. This is also the site where the tectonic plates of America and Eurasia have pulled apart, creating a rift valley on the shores of Iceland’s largest lake. Visit the Geysir Hot Springs, home to the original geyser and Iceland’s most iconic natural attraction. Here, the ground trembles and steaming hot water spouts spectacularly skyward from the famous Strokkur Geyser every few minutes. Take a leisurely walk down to Gullfoss Waterfall, an awesome sight to behold. A powerful glacial river cascades down 2 levels for 32 meters with a thunderous roar into a narrow canyon. Board a new bus equipped with WiFi and connected computer tablets at each seat. On the tablet, you’ll be able to use the GPS-sensitive audio guide (available in several languages) to get to know about Iceland and the places you visit on the tour. There will be a host on board, happy to answer any questions you might have about the country. Each seat is equipped with a USB charger.

가이드 분(John) 이 정말 친절하고 영어발음도 알아듣기 좋게 쉽게 천천히 말하시고, 관람포인트들, 주의점들 다 찝어주십니다. 버스에 언제까지 돌아와라 말씀 다 해주십니다. 싱벨리어, 유기농농장, 게이시르, 굴포스에 내려서 한 40분씩(20-40) 보고 버스로 이동하고를 반복합니다. 유기농농장에서 파는 아이스크림 1스쿱에 4500원 정도하는데 블루베리맛은.....먹지마세요...(블루베리요거트 맛인거같기도한데 불쾌한 블요맛입니다...저 불요되게좋아하는데, 암튼) 눈, 비, 블리자드까지 있었지만! 버스로 이동하는 동안 날씨가 계속 바뀌어서 막판에는 날씨가 맑아지더군요ㅋㅋㅋ 저는 9시부터 4시까지 투어했구, 구간이동시간도 생각보다 짧고 아ㅡ주 강추합니다. 한국어오디오가이드 태블릿을 빌릴 수 있고, 유선이어폰이 필요해요!(뭐 블투 이어폰도 되는거같던데..) 가이드가 헤드셋 빌려주기도합니다.

Awesome experience! We had plenty of time at each stop, and the WiFi was fast on the bus so it was easy to upload pictures and videos! Definitely recommend! Only semi-issue was the pick-up time originally said 8:30 but it was closer to 8:50, not a big deal though, we were just the last to get picked up.

The tour was great. The sights were great. You also had enough time to look at everything. We had actually booked a hotel pick-up service and waited 30 minutes before the hotel as described. Then I received the call that the pick-up had been rescheduled for a bus stop and that they had allegedly informed me of this by email. Luckily the guide was in contact with the bus driver who was waiting for us.
