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.
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.

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.

Make sure to soak in a geothermal spring...out of this world! We rented a 4x4 to avoid the crowds and be able to see more than just what the tours offered

Really enjoyed Reykjavik, we had two days in port and we had booked the second day for our trip, which worked out very well as the organisation for getting off the first day left a lot to be desired. We nearly has a fight in the queue to get off as people were trying to push in the ONE line to get off... The port is well worth a visit and you must do at least one trip (we did the golden triangle) - just make sure you take something waterproof with you.

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!

Be sure to do the Best of the Golden Circle, which for me included Thingvelir, Gullfoss & Geysir. You see a lot in 8 hours. It is quite comprehensive and worthwhile. The Geothermal area is awesome. Gillfoss is Iceland's most beautiful waterfall. You see it all ion one tour.
We boarded a 4-wheel drive super truck and drove to Thingvellir. We visited Langjokul (long) Glacier. We drove over the ice and snow to the Ice Cave. It is located about 100 feet below the glacier. Walk through the man made cave in an icy underground. See the color of the ice change to blue. Wow
