If you are looking for a Golden Circle excursion when we are in port on August 12 at a reasonable price and one that picks us up at the ship and makes sure we are back in time, check out GEOIceland.com. When you select the tour for Aug 12 and enter the discount code KONINGSDAM you will get a 10 percent discount and picked up early at 8 am and back at 4 pm. So we won't miss our departure time. I checked quite a few tour companies and this is the best price and time. They take us in a 19 passenger Mercedes van. They also get great reviews on Trip Advisor.

Absolutely loved Reykjavik! I think I could live there. We had an overnight here so we did an excursion the first day and just enjoyed the city the second day. The excursion we did, Glacier Walk and Waterfalls was unbelievable - driving on a glacier and going into a glacier - amazing! The tour was in monster SUVs with special tires which could go on any terrain - which we did. I won't spoil the surprises. Great guides! Another community wide event was going on the second day and we fully immersed and had a great time!

Iceland is beautiful. This was where our cruise started and we went in 2 days early. We went to the Blue Lagoon just after we landed (we had booked it ahead along with the bus into Reykjavik. We stayed 3 hours and it was so relaxing! We also booked the Golden Circle Tour through GeoTours and it was incredible. Small group of 10, stopped and petted the horses, saw the Geyser, several beautiful waterfalls. The whole tour was about 8 hours. Iceland has terrific cell coverage, you rarely go below 3 bars.

Big city. Fun to walk around the town. We did the HAL excursion, Best of the Golden Circle: Thingvellir, Gullfoss & Geysir, which was excellent. We saw a lot! The overnight stay permitted us to take another excursion with HAL called Glacier Safari by 4-wheel Drive & a Walk in a Glacier Cave. It was such an unusual excursion. We saw snow falling on the top of the glacier. You need warm clothing for this tour.
