Excellent tour
Oct. 2021
This was an amazing tour and we would highly recommend - Gummi was an excellent tour guide. He really knows a great deal about the sites and the area history. The tour was longer than stated in the description, but that's because Gummi saw northern lights and pulled over so we could all see them and take pictures. This was the first chance we had to see them so really appreciated the extra effort.

Great sights, but would recommend another company that does this tour.
Sep. 2021 • Couples
Pros:
1. Beautiful sights and weather was decent
2. Good story telling from driver - lots of history and knowledge of Iceland

Cons:
1. Trip was actually 15.5 hours, not 14
2. Drive was very cramped! We had 8 people plus the driver in a minivan. There were 2 rows of 3, plus 2 people up front with the tour guide. You’re pretty squished all day. Other companies offer an 18-24 seat bus that is a much better space option.
3. The tour guide was nodding off while driving, which is scary no matter what, but for a 4.5 hour return in Iceland weather and roads, it’s even worse!!!

FYI - it’s not possible to socially distance in this mini van and masks are not required, so if that’s important to you, this is probably not the company to take tours with.

We are glad you enjoyed the sights. Usually, our passengers enjoy the extra hours and extra things done or sights visited during the tours. We have multiple vehicles and assign them depending on the number of individuals in each tour. You are welcome to masks on the tours, but it is not required as there are very few covid restrictions in Iceland right now. Thanks for your review in any case, and we hope you enjoyed your time in Iceland.

A lot of the spectacular South Coast in one LONG day
Aug. 2021
Gummi was a thoughtful and knowledgeable driver and guide. He has incredible endurance. The total time of our tour was 16 hours and included so many beautiful places and interesting stories. This tour is a great way to see a lot of the South Coast in one very long day.

Good guide, interesting program but unfortunately not punctual.
Jun. 2019
Several companies offered day tours to Jokulsarlon at roughly the same prices. Gateway to Iceland offered for 19900 kronor. I chose the tour that the travel Agency only because reopen to the public Fjadrargljufur сanyon was in the program. Otherwise, I would have gone on this tour the day before. I left at night. If the tour had ended as planned, I would have caught the Direct bus to the airport, which I had already bought a ticket for. However, the minibus was already half an hour late in the morning. The clock in the bus was 20 minutes behind and I realized how much Iceland is not Germany. My hopes of making it were fading. I didn't get on the bus. The driver helped me get to Keflavik, but it cost me almost as if I went to Jokulsarlon twice. Summary. If you are not limited in time, then order a tour from them. Good guide, reliable mini-bus, interesting program (Skogafoss-Vik (without Cape Dirholey), Fjadrargljufur canyon (Wow!), Skeidararsandur glacier, awesome Jokulsarlon lagoon, Diamond Beach, Hofskirkja, Seljalandsfoss). If there is no time left, then feel free to refuse. Unfortunately, they are not punctual.

Best trip
Mar. 2020 • Couples
We thought we would be tired after unsuccessfully chasing lights the previous night. Got to bed at 01:00. Woke up at 6:30 for a 14 hours tour.
The soft spoken guide tricked us.
Initially we thought he was going to put us to sleep but instead he hypnotized us! His every word was wrapped in love for Iceland. Such a great storyteller that even the weather calmed down and delivered magnificent views.
It was a perfect day

The Most Knowledgeable and Thoughtful Tour Guide on the Island
Feb. 2020 • Couples
“What could ruin Iceland?”

My tour guide, Gummi of Gateway to Iceland, was extremely knowledgeable about the history, economy, folklore, and everyday life of Iceland. But I wanted to hear something different.

“I cite, from Wikipedia. GDP is $75k, 16th place in the world, real purchasing power GDP 5th in the world, GINI index 6th in the world, HDI (human development index) 2nd in the world. This is practically heaven. What would you like to change about Iceland?”

Gummi thought for a long moment, and said seriously, “Really, nothing.”

“A follow up question,” I was going for the kill now, “what could ruin it for Iceland?”

Gummi thought for a very long moment, deafening silence in the tour van, finally replied softly, “Technology.”

“O.K., should I jump off the car now?”

What ensued was a meaningful, thoughtful, global conversation on the impact of technology on the future of humanity. There were French, English, and German in the tour van, in a tight space, locked up together for twelve hours.

Gummi is super knowledgeable and thoughtful, and super considerate of his customers’ wishes, either for an impromptu stop to take a picture, or an unusual inquiry like mine. We really enjoyed the tour.

Fantastic Tour!!
Feb. 2020
Gummi was our bus driver and guide. He is very knowledgeable. He told great stories. I loved diamond beach and loved lunch and dinner at Vik village. The Lagoon was spectacular!!! The waterfall was beatiful at night!! This tour was my favorite though it was long it was worth it! The only suggestion I would recommend for this tour is having a driver and a tour guide so they can share the driving. By far my favorite tour!!

Recommended; Gummi is great!
Jan. 2020 • Friends
We had the chance to have the owner Gummi as our guide, a wonderful man full of knowledge and anecdotes to share.

It is a long day, that’s for sure, but the drive is smooth and the mini bus is very comfortable (wifi, charging outlets, big windows, heating etc).

We had the incredible chance to witness a polar cloud! Gummi was very considerate and made extra stops in order for us to enjoy this natural phenomenon!

Thank you for the great experience, we will definitely recommend. (:

Wonderful day!
Jan. 2020 • Couples
As many of the reviews say, this is a long day but it is worth it! Gummi, our guide, was excellent. He had great stories that really added to the trip. He has been a professional driver and navigated the snowy, windy roads with great skill.
The timing worked even with the long hours of darkness as we got to the major sites with plenty of daylight except for Skogafoss which was beautifully lighted and was even more dramatic after dark.
Take a book for the drive back if you go during winter and you will have an amazing, memorable day. We highly recommend this tour. Ask for Gummi if possible.

Beautiful spots in south Iceland
Dec. 2019 • Solo
I prefer small group tours because of the personal touch. This was no exception. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the geological history of Iceland, customs and all kinds of interesting facts.
The highlight for me was Glacier Lagoon and Diamond (Crystal Beach) which was the final destination before returning back to Reykjavík. Although it was a tight schedule to visit all the spots on the I tinerary, there wasn’t really any other way to do accomplish this unless it was made into a two day trip.
The scenery during the drive from and Reykjavík and back again was breath taking especially because of the snow. I love Iceland in winter and highly recommend this tour to see some of the amazing sights of Iceland.
I hope you enjoy this tour as much as I did.
