Most visitors to Iceland journey around the Golden Circle—the popular sightseeing route that includes Thingvellir National Park, Geysir, and Gullfoss.

Traveling in a group of no more than 12 people ensures a more laid-back experience than some of the bigger tours.
  • Visit the main landmarks on the Golden Circle, as well as some quieter spots
  • Small-group tour, limited to 12 people, ensures a more personal experience

Fantastic trip - thank you Robert our tour guide
Jenni_T, Mar 2023
Brilliant experience, tour guide Robert was fab, so knowledgeable and he spent the whole trip sharing his tips, experience and answered everyone’s questions. Being a small bus was great and we did so much but never felt hurried or rushed. The secret lagoon was a lovely warm start, the tomato greenhouse was also warm with delicious food and that set us up for the geyser, waterfall and National park.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you for the fantastic review, Jenni! Robert is a fab guide as you said and we're very happy to read that you enjoyed the whole day with him. Come back any time!
Highlight of our trip!
Paige_H, Mar 2023
This was a great tour. Our tour guide Robert had great stories and facts about Iceland that really made the trip fun and interesting. After having a tour the day before that had a van with one more row of seats, it was nice being in the clean spacious Mercedes van. Going directly to the Secret lagoon was a wonderful start to the day. It was glorious! Clean, warm and water directly from the earth (no the power plant), proof is in the hot springs bubbling up around the pool. Going to the greenhouse was a pleasant surprise! Not sure how interesting a greenhouse would be, but seeing how they harnessed the earth's energy was fascinating! And the food was fantastic too! (desserts cooked in the terracotta are not to be missed, especially the cheesecake!). And don't forget to try some of the tomato drinks, and the bread? Off the charts! The national park was beautiful too! But what isn't in Iceland! Another thing I liked about this tour was the places weren't too far away from each other, so you weren't in the van for hours at a time. I would recommend this in a heartbeat! It was a highlight of our trip!
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you for the great review, Paige! Robert really is an ideal guide to show you around the wonderful sights of the Golden Circle. We agree, the tomato farm has to be seen to believe how unique and worthwhile it is. Glad you enjoyed the entire trip and thank you for the future recommendations! Thanks again. Thanks
Magical trip in Iceland
Karen_S, Mar 2023
The whole day was truly magical. Straightforward collection and off we went to the Secret Lagoon. We arrived early before the crowds and it was lovely, unbelievably warm water and great fun. The tomato farm was fascinating and the food was all really tasty. We also got to meet some Icelandic horses. It was amazing to see the Geyser in real life and the Waterfall is spectacular. We were lucky to catch a beautiful rainbow there. The icing on the cake to our wonderful day was our guide Robert. He was friendly and funny, and the journeys between the stopping points passed by so quickly with his stories and information. We learnt a lot about Iceland, and I loved his recommendation of the Icelandic composer Ólafur Arnalds. (Takk Robert!). The minibus was much more comfortable than we thought (as we are both tall people) and Robert was a careful driver. I cannot fault this trip at all. I would happily go on it again tomorrow if I could.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Hi Karen, Thank you so much for this magical review. So nice to hear that you got to the Secret Lagoon before the crowds and enjoyed the tomato farm so much! Robert really is a wonderful guide to take you on this kind of trip. He is so fun to be around. I'll need to give Ólafur Arnalds another listen too! Glad you found the vehicle so comfortable too, we intentionally spaced out the seats more than in normal vehicles Thanks again for joining us.
What a fabulous excursion...
Jordan_S, Jan 2023
What a fabulous excursion this was! We booked this trip last minute and so glad that we did! We were lucky to travel in a small group and our tour guide's were super friendly and knowledgeable about the areas we visited. We would recommend this excursion to anybody visiting Iceland. The views of Gullfoss waterfall were out of this world, and the experience of having lunch at Fridheimar tomato restaurant will definitely be one to remember. 10/10!!
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Hi Jordan, Thank you for the fabulous reveiw and for joining us on our Golden Circle Platinum tour. Thank you for the 10/10 mark. It means a lot. See you next time!
Amazing day
Caroline_G, Jan 2023
The Secret Lagoon was amazing, we went first thing and it was quiet and very warm. The food at the Tomatoe Farm was also amazing and the bread was lovely. The whole trip was a joy and I would definatley recommend.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thank you for the amazing review, Caroline. We're so happy to read that you had such a joyful time with us. Come back any time.
Highly recommend booking with Hidden Iceland - Exceptional tour.

You've found it, book this one now! This tour with Hidden Iceland was perfect. The tour group was small, the vehicle was very nice, the itinerary was great, the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thanks for the recommendation, Matt! Your kind words mean a lot to us. Come back any time!
Great Winter Experience in Iceland
Sheryl_F, Dec 2022
We had an amazing experience. Fannar was our guide and he was fantastic. We loved his stories throughout the day. The Frioheimar Tomato Greenhouse lunch is a must!! The food is amazing and we enjoyed it very much. The tour itself and the experiences we enjoyed were definitely worth it. Seeing the Geyers, walking on the Eurasia tectonic plate and seeing the North American fisher are truly an opportunity to not miss.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thank you for the great review, Sheryl! Fannar really is one of a kind when it comes to guiding, as is the Friðheimar Tomato Farm and all the other sights. Thanks again.
A lovely way to get a feel for Iceland in a short time.
Wendy_R, Nov 2022
Great guide, small friendly group, really enjoyable trip. The Secret Lagoon was really special. Magic.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thank you for the kind words, Wendy.
A Great Venture out of the City
Peter_E, Oct 2022
easy pick-up at the bus station. Sigrun Sol was a wonderful tour guide. Very knowledgeable, helpful, professional, and kind. Everyone on the tour was thrilled that the Secret Lagoon was the LAST stop on the long day's trip, rather than the first stop, as mentioned in the Tour details. Secret Lagoon would not be a good first stop at all. After a long day of sight-seeing, it is the ideal way to end the tour. Had plenty of time to eat at Fridheimar and did not feel rushed. Great place to eat. Had a good amount of time at the Geysir and Gulfoss as well. I feel like we could have had a better experience at Thingveiller and the tectonic plates. Didn't really get to absorb that all that much. Bus was clean and comfortable; WiFi. Not too many people on the tour, which was good...probably 12. Overall, for folks staying in Reykjavik, it is a great way to venture out of the city center and experience another wonderful location and iconic sites of Iceland.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Thank you for your kind words about Sigrún Sól, she really is a wonderful guide. We are glad you enjoyed eating at Friðheimar, it is a great experience. We do only have a maximum of 12 people on our tours, it really does change the feel of the whole day. Thank you for your kind words and if you ever visit again, please let us know!
A must do tour!
Bernard_C, Oct 2022
Absolutely outstanding tour! Alberto was amazing. Very informative and funny. He provided so much insight into our destinations and on Iceland in general. I would highly recommend this tour. It was also a very small and friendly group.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Thank you for the review, Bernard! We agree, Alberto is a fantastic guide and does so much to enrich each tour. Glad you had so much fun.
Day tour with Atli
Denise_G, Oct 2022
It was a wonderful day, our guide Atli was extremely knowledgeable and shared the experience with us instead of just dropping us off and picking us up. We were a small group of 5, so it was very easy to get going after a hike. The secret lagoon is a must, natural and unspoiled. Go early as it gets busy around 11.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Thank you for the great review, Denise! We agree, Atli is a fantastic guide and really makes all the difference on these kinds of trip. Glad you had so much fun.
Amazing tour
Conrad_H, Sep 2022
We booked two tours with Hidden Iceland and were very happy with both. Beginning with our first contact with him, the tour operator Aaron provided excellent timely communication regarding booking details and answering any questions. Our tour guide, Max, for the Golden Circle tour was amazing. He was so friendly, took such good care of the group, and was a wealth of interesting knowledge. We felt quite fortunate that this tour with Max was our first activity during our seven days in Iceland. The tour itself went far beyond the typical Golden Circle tour - the inclusion of a stop at the Secret Lagoon and lunch at the Fridheimar Tomato Greenhouse was such a bonus. We picked this company because it had wonderful reviews and offered a small group experience, and they did not disappoint. We greatly enjoyed the entire day and would highly recommend this tour.
Response from Host, Sep 2022
Hi Conrad, thanks for the amazing review and for joining Hidden Iceland. Aaron is a great trip planner and Max is a great guide. They make a wonderful duo. Glad to hear it was a highlight of your trip, especially the lunch at Friðheimar. Thank you for the recommendation.
Our tour guide was great,...
Dianne_H, Aug 2022
Our tour guide was great, the waterfall incredible, the geyser and National Park we’re amazing. Early arrival at the Hidden Lagoon was brilliant because our group practically had it to ourselves and huge groups of folks were arriving when we were leaving. Eating lunch IN the tomato farm growing area was a relaxing and delicious experience. The tomato beer was delicious. Very good tour!
Response from Host, Sep 2022
Thank you for the kind words, Dianne. We're glad you enjoyed the tour and the Secret Lagoon. Going in the morning leaves you to have it all to yourself a lot of the time which is always nice. Thanks for joining us.
Awesome Tour
Megan_V, Aug 2022
This was an incredible experience and well worth the money. Our tour guide Alberto was funny and informative. We saw waterfalls and the lunch was amazing. This tour far exceeded my expectations.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Thanks Megan, what an awesome review of our tour and of the always hilarious, Alberto. Happy to hear you had fun.
Perfect Day Trip
Michael_W, Aug 2022
Great tour guide! Very friendly and shared excellent history and stories about Iceland along the way. The lagoon was relaxing and fascinating. The waterfalls and geyser were beautiful. The tomato farm was gorgeous and lunch was delicious.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Hi Michael, Perfect is exactly the type of review title we love to read. Very happy to hear you enjoyed the lagoon, geyser, waterfalls and of course the delicious tomato farm.
The tomato lunch and tour...
Linda_H, Aug 2022
The tomato lunch and tour was my favorite part. Our guide, Snorri was great. He did the circle the opposite way most people do it so we had very few people at the secret Lagoon. He was very laid-back and let us take her time everywhere we went. I really enjoyed hearing the His personal background which is so different from the United States
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Thank you for the great review Linda. It sounds like you had a wonderful time with Snorri on our Golden Circle: Platinum tour. He certainly is a great and laid back guide who really loves to share his unique Icelandic background. We see that you gave us a 4 star. That's great. Thank you. But if you find the time to pop us an email in the future to give us some additional feedback so we can learn how to turn your 4 stars into 5 stars that would be great. And we agree, nothing beats the tomato lunch at Friðheimar tomato farm. The owners are quite lovely too.
Excellent trip!
BichThuy_D, Jul 2022
The trip was great, the fact that it's only small groups makes the experience all the better. Our guide Arna was great and explained many things to us, she was very friendly and it was truly pleasant to talk to her about everything. For the tour itself, everything went smoothly. The Secret Lagoon was not particularly crowded and was a really refreshing (so to say) way to begin the day. The break at the greenhouse was a nice one, especially if you like tomatoes. The various stops through the Golden Circle were really nice, the landscapes are of course breathtaking and all the explanations Arna gave made it all the more worthwhile! Thanks for such a great day!
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Thank you for the excellent review of Arna and our Golden Circle Platinum tour. She is such a pleasure to travel with. So chatty and knowledgeable and just a great companion on any day out. Come again any time.
Book it now!
Bev_B, Jul 2022
Was well worth the time! Max was an excellent guide who made sure our group was able to see the highlights at each stop. He was extremely informative and made the day long trip seem like it was much shorter.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thank you for the great review, Bev. Max is a great guide so we're happy you had such a good time with him.
Fabulous day trip
Gianna_K, Apr 2022
Brilliant! I loved the whole day. Comfy bus, great timings to avoid the crowds at all the sites, superb guides Inky and Etle, etc etc. Really, it's the best way to see the Golden Circle.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Thanks Gianna, we're glad to see you had such a wonderful day. And you're so lucky to have got two guides too. Ingi and Atli make such a good team.
Not to miss.
