I originally booked for 5 of us friends. Very easy to book online. One friend had to cancel- I only emailed Grayline and I got my refund. I also booked the other tours- Reykjavic City tour, South Coast/Glacier Lagoon tour and Golden Circle with Grayline- all with no hassle.

Excellent Service!

   

Arrived promptly and on time. Both driver and guide very friendly, kept us up to date with when we were going with timescales. Phoenix the guide was very informative and told us some amazing facts about the Northern Lights and and interesting stories about Iceland, even though it was not her native country. Were fed back information as to where the best place/time was to see the Lights regularly and were successful that evening, which was an added bonus. All in all a very impressive tour. Thank you Gray Line.

Gray line forgot to pick us up even though we received a confirmation the night before. Waited 30 minutes . When I called to complain the agent was rude. I had to rebook for the afternoon. This tour is not worth the money. Walk it yourself.

04 January, 2019 by Ms Ersilia Giordani on Grayline Tour

   

Okay trip if you are looking to kill a few hours. The driver was informative and gave a fairly decent history of Iceland. The locations visited were closed with exception of the Perlan and National Concert Hall. If we are brought to the location then we shouldn't only walk around. More time and access would be appreciated at the Perlan to see its museum. If you go in winter the first 1.5 hours are in the dark.

Well Worth It

   

Perfect way to see the wonderful city of Reykjavík. There’s so much to see and this is the way to do it. I would highly recommend this company as we did both the Lava Cave and the Reykjavík Tour. I learned a ton and our guides couldn’t have been better. Nothing but positive things to say!

Great tour

   

Easy to find, nice bus, informative guide

07 May, 2018 by Mrs Regan Sorensen on Grayline Tour

Friendly, professional guide

   

We took the city tour on a rainy day which unfortunately dampened our enthusiasm. However, our guide made it enjoyable, providing a great deal of information, especially when he wasn't following the script. What I had overlooked was that you initially board a minibus and then are taken to another minibus for the tour. I wish the original driver had told us she was just transporting us. I was waiting for the narration to start. I recommend the tour if you want to see the highlights of the city...and hope for sunshine which came the next day.

Great customer service!

   

Booking was simple and easy online. Unfortunately, due to a death in the family, I had to postpone. Gray Line was incredibly understanding, processing a full refund with just a few quick emails. When I do make the trip, I will definitely use Gray Line for all of my tour and airport transfer needs.

17 April, 2018 by Mr Harry Smith on Grayline Tour

Awesome tour of Reykjavic

   

Grayline is easy and convenient when it comes to scheduling activities in Iceland.

13 April, 2018 by Ms Sheena Sparks on Grayline Tour

Absolutely amazing

   

This tour was incredible, and the tour guide was very informative I remember he said his name meant a deer lol. Lots of beautiful scenery and snack breaks. I would recommend to get plenty of rest on the bus because it will be a long day. The waterfalls were sensational we were lucky with the weather as it was sunny and we got to see a rainbow at the bottom of the waterfall. Black beach was breathtaking! Highly recommend this tour ( travelled in April)

09 March, 2018 by Mrs Lesley Wilson on Grayline Tour

   

We were the last ones on the bus and ended up in the very back. Several people including my husband and I requested the driver use/speak into his microphone since we had a difficult time hearing him. He did not have a clear speaker no voice/diction was poor. It didn't help either that he was both the driver and tour director...while we saw the sights, it felt hurried and not well done.

error in the pickup

   

We were 5 minutes early but the bus didn't come die 25 minutes. So we missed the second bus to the airport wich meant we almost missed our flight. The driver tried hard to get is thee earlier. But we had a lot of stress

03 March, 2018 by Mr Jeroen de Boer on Grayline Tour

   

It was very user friendly without any hassles

Really worthwhile tour of Reykjavik and the surrounding area

   

Really worthwhile tour of Reykjavik and the surrounding area. We were able to book at short notice, and the driver/guide was brilliant - full of local and historical knowledge that really brought the tour to life. Definitely recommend this tour as a quick introduction to the area.

Highly recommended, booked all our trips through Gray Line. Very helpful & informative guides

22 February, 2018 by Ms Clare Shannon on Grayline Tour

Overall excellent Company

   

I had two great tours, The Northern Lights and Reykjavik tour both great with great guides. Excellent pick up and drop off from hotel as well. The only negative is a missed bus pick up on arrival in Iceland. I'm still waiting for a promised refund which isn't going to happen by the look of it. Otherwise a good company to deal with.

We had our airport transfer to and from Raykjavik. The Golden Circle tour and the Northern Lights tour with Grayline. The Northern Lights were cancelled due to snow blizzards. The airport transfers were fantastic and very slic. Our Golen circle tour was fantastic too with our tour guide known as 'Willie' who was great. We thoroughly enjoyed the day. Grayline were excellent and we will certainally be recommending them to friends and family. Thank you

The Reykjavik City Tour was a great way to start out our vacation in Iceland. It gave us an overview of the city and stopped at many of the best places to take photographs.

The tour was great

   

Tour was great - our guide was very knowledgeable- however getting there was difficult- we were picked up on time but our driver got us to the main terminal late & the tour had already left- we had to go in another van to catch up with them

Highlight of our week in Iceland

   

Our city tour on New Years eve day was magical. Our driver/guide (name sounded like 'Greesle' was knowledgable, generous and humble. We felt honoured to get a peak inside of an authentic Icelander's experience as he showed us the sites of Reyjkevik. He knew the organist of the majestic church/cathedral. He dropped us off near our Air B&B and when I got inside I realized I'd left my iphone on the bus. He came back from his home to the bus station with it and graciously returned it. Amazing

Terrible Customer Service

   

I had the worst experience with Grayline Iceland…I was supposed to be picked up from Reykjavik Airport but was told by the Agent at the Counter that Grayline did not pickup from the Airport except for Blue Lagoon Tours…I was then advised I would need to take a Taxi to the Grayline Main Terminal in Reykjavik for my scheduled tour…Once I arrived to Reykjavik I found out that Grayline did in fact pickup from the Airport and that I had just spent 15,000ISK ($150) on a Taxi Ride for nothing…Very upsetting!!!

Très bons services, bien organisés et ponctuels. Il manque juste les temps de trajet à annoncer sur le site ou par les chauffeurs et/ou les guides. Un retard de plus d’une heure au pick-up du blue lagoon aurait pu être annoncé et encore un effort pour les français et tout sera parfait.

Nice half day tour

   

There were many options to choose from. We had limited time for a biz tour, but the Reykjavik tour fit perfectly into our schedule. The only complaint is that they stated this was a two-and-a-half-hour tour. But at the conclusion of the tour they drop each individual group off at their hotels which took quite some time. We had to travel all the way back to the bus depot which was an additional hour

The tour was interesting. It was rainy so the tour guide added in an inside tour of a small museum. Our only issue with Gray Line is that they apparently forgot to pick us up (we had to call twice while waiting); the first time we called they said they were picking up other people and would be there soon. The second time we called they said they were a few minutes away. When they got to us, no one else was on the van; everyone was waiting on the tour bus at the main GrayLine terminal.

Used Gray Line for all our trips.....Blue Lagoon from airport, Golden Circle, SNaefellsnes, NOrthern Lights deluxe and City tour. All our guides were brilliant, particularly Dori and the drivers were great too. Pick up/ drop off right from and to Hotel door. Rearranged our Northern lights trip for us over radio whilst on a day trip. We were late coming back and missed departure of NL bus but they arranged for us to swap buses in a lay-bys so we didn't miss it.
