Frequently asked questions about the Guides


How far in advance do I need to book a tour?

We would recommend booking your tours as soon as possible. They can get fully booked very quickly. Especially in the summer months.

Can I cancel my tour at any time?

You can in fact cancel at any time, but sadly most tour companies won’t refund you if you cancel less than 24 hours before the start of the tours, unless the tour companies themself cancel because of bad weather, then you’ll be fully refunded. You can see our refund policy HERE which is in line with all of the companies we work with.

What is the Golden circle?

The Golden Circle is the most popular touring route in Iceland. It’s a 300 km route containing 3 of the biggest attractions of Iceland, Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir and Thingvellir national park. It’s one of the most popular day-tour routes for tourists. Find more about tours and other attractions of the Golden Circle, HERE.


Is there any age restriction on tours?

Many tour companies do have an age restriction policy, so I suggest you read well over the information about the tours and then book the one that suits you.
