Thank you for submitting review
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.
Easy, once I found your specific webpage.
Prompt hotel pickup, small group city tour. Tour guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable and humorous. A good way to get to know the city of Reykavic.
On time pickups and great tour guide information
Straight forward easy to use
Highly delighted with grayline from start to finish. We were picked up from the airport & also went on several excursions. Staff were excellent, very friendly & correspondence via email were very prompt. Definitely 5 stars ⭐️
Highly organised and prompt pickup times. Went on several tours and all we’re excellent.Guides are very well informed and have a great love of their country. Have spread the word for family members going next year to use this firm.
Ease of use and clarity of options
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.
Pontualidade no pick-up; guias bem preparados e muito simpáticos; bons meios de transporte.
Everything your driver was very informative and a very nice man and yes I would certainly recommend your company.
Excellent, easy to book.
Ou tour guid was so nice and informative. Unfortunately I can’t remember his name but he was great!
Very easy to book on line.
Loved how knowledgeable the tour guides were!!! The trips were on time and organized very well!!
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.
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.
Very easy to purchase. Clear information and confirmation.
Fantastic service, punctuality at its best! Thank you for an unbelievable experience in a beautiful country!
An excellent tour with a very knowledgable guide
It was a good tour and experience. Guide had good knowledge of the tour, City and needs of the passengers.
Prompt courteous service with few cancellations
Good tour guide!
the driver was on time and very knowledge
Puntuality of first service from airport to bus terminal has been really good, including the conection time at the terminal bus. Besides, wifi service inside the bus has been really good and a added value to contract your services.
Very easy online booking experience!
Appeared to cover everything. Friendly and knowledgeable guide.
Booked quickly on short notice, worked well this time, however not so well for a northern lights tour I booked later that day/evening...
Puntuali e molto professioniste le guide. Sceglierò sempre Gray Line.
The day started out raining but subsided after about 1/2 hours. The guide/driver was very informative about the areas which we were showed. We had a very nice 3 hours tour visiting many of the highlighted areas of Reykjavik. In all a very worthwhile tour.
Pickup on time great guide. Good selection of stops
Great tour, very informative. Excellent driver and guide. I would most certainly recommend Gray Line.
The guide was great kept up an informative dialogue friendly and read his audience well as most tired from long flights Also let us off where we wanted ro at the end of the trip
Great service! Pickups were on time, they had names of passengers on hand!
Golden Circle Tour was absolutely breathtaking. Great host I believe his name is Harley. Very knowledgeable of the landscape enough time to take stunning pictures and videos I will 100% be booking them again on my return trip
The driver he was pick up on time. The driver and tour guide as a same people. He is nice and told about the history in Iceland.
It was very nice to have a small bus and a small group of 8 people. Our guy was informative and we enjoyed his stories of how Icelanders felt about a variety of different topics.
Made a mistake-2 stars. Your site is difficult
Great tour. Very interesting
Excellent guide! Our family enjoyed the golden circle tour.
easy to use no problems
Great tour! Perfect!
Thursday pickup driver was funny and started our day off right. Friday's not so much. Wouldn't let us on with coffee, even though only going a few miles. Online booking was vey easy through Viatour.Some
Excellent guide, wel organized tour
Easy to book online.
Very simple - easy to follow instructions
It was really a great experience. We enjoyed +++ this tour, the guide was absolutely excellent and it was an amazing experience to know more about Iceland and Reykjavik, with so many interesting details and information. So, really thank you for the quality
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!
Very eady to booK online without any problem
Nice and interactive website. Very easy to book.
Tour guide was friendly and enthusiastic.
Our driver (sorry can't remember his name) was very knowledgeable . We really enjoyed and tour. We will use and recommend Gray Line tours for Iceland tours in the future.
Great service and great trip
Easy to find, nice bus, informative 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.
Gray Line est un excellent service, les guides sont très sympathiques. Gray Line est très professionnel et réactif en cas de problème. Très ponctuel également et il ne vous laisse jamais en galère. Je recommande vivement
Quick responses and to-the-point guidance
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.
Grayline is easy and convenient when it comes to scheduling activities in Iceland.
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)
Very knowledgeable guide. Good range of locations with some time to explore.
Great service with all trips punctual and informative. Would definitely recommend.
Punctual, professional yet friendly service!
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.
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
It was very user friendly without any hassles
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
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
Driver was very knowledgeable about the area. Gave us information about Iceland we did not know.
Ok booking experience. No problems with pickups. I have used them for years now and will use them again.
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.
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
Booking online was very easy and straight forward.
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
Brilliant tour . Knowledgeable and friendly guide . Great sites to see . Well organised and good value for money
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!!!
Modern fleet of luxury buses. Great customer service. Reliable. Good English described tour.
They turned up on time to pick you up for the airport and the tours. Told you what you had to do when you needed to change buses
Easy to book. Well organised.
Great Service. Booked this as the Game of Thrones Tour was cancelled due to bad weather.
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.
Their online booking system is super easy to use. Click away for the adventure you want, find your pick-up point and pay. Nothing more complicated than that. All the drivers, guides and customer service agents are fantastic.
Simon was very informative and entertaining
The online booking experience was easy and quick.
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
Smooth and easy - all questions answered promptly
Communicated all important info
It was informative and easy to book. It said exactly what was expected.
Great way to spend the morning before I was able to checkin to hotel
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.
Straight forward process
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.
We actually missed our pick up time, so we called Gray Line and they alerted the driver and guide. We took a taxi to the first stop and met up with the rest of the group. We were so grateful for this company not allowing us to miss out on beautiful Reykjavik!
Easy & straightforward to follow
The guide is very patient
Very easy to book. Prompt reply. No fuss
The driver/guide Roman was very knowledgeable about contry
