We had a fantastic time on the tour. It was a full day and I was worried it would feel long but we got off the bus often and got to walk around a lot. Breaks were just the right length. We loved all of the info that our guide shared. He was really amazing. He was so informative. My son said it felt like we had the "inside scoop" over the other people visiting the same sites.

The Golden Circle with Secret Lagoon was an excellent day. First the weather cooperated and we had sunshine. At each stop there was ample time to see the sights. Food was sold at all three sites on the circle and snacks at the lagoon. Our guide was friendly and answered questions An enjoyable day Well organized as well
