There are lots of options for Golden Circle tours. We chose Solstice Tours based on the TripAdvisor reviews and are glad we did. Jon was friendly, informative, helpful, and fun as a tour guide. He provided bottles of water for us and stopped for food and bathroom breaks often enough so we were always comfortable during our day tour. We... More

This was our 2nd visit to Iceland and we choose Solstice again for this visit. Jon is friendly, knowledgeable, flexible and goes the extra mile to make sure you all have an unforgettable experience. If we return to Iceland again we would have no hesitation in booking Solstice Tours for our sightseeing. Thanks for the memories.

Jon was simply brilliant. We did the Northern Lights tour with him. Jon went above and beyond our expectations. He explained the existence of the Northern Lights and took us to secret spots to watch the lights. It was an amazing experience being away from all of the other tourist crowds. Jon brought us hot chocolate and took great pictures... More

We did the Golden Circle tour and the Northern Lights tour with Jon. The Golden Circle tour was lovely. We went to all the main attractions and more. Jon is a perfect guide, very informative about Icelandic history and traditions explaining in detail about all the attractions we visited. He fitted crampons over our walking boots which made us feel... More

My family had 3 tours with Jon last week: Golden Circle, Northern lights and the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. Each was just what we had hoped for! Jon is so passionate about his country, and highly informative. But I think it is the way he shares this information that makes him sought after. His friendly banter, story telling, knowledge of out of... More

We were only 7 people on Jon's tour which gave us the private tour feeling. So much knowledge was shared in an entertaining way. Jon never stayed behind but always walked with us to make sure we had the full experience of every site. Jon even brought his own camera to take pictures for us on the Northern Lights tour... More

We are so glad that we booked these tours with Jon whose knowledge gives you a wonderful understanding of how the northern lights are formed, and an insight to Iceland's way of life as well as the history. Being in a small group made the tour more intimate and humorous. I use to work in the travel industry and have... More

A group of 9 of us went on a 7 day private tour with Jon Frosti during the Christmas holidays, and we were glad that we have chosen Solstice tours over the big tour companies. We went around the island (except the West Fjords) in 7 days in Jon's 14 seater van which was spacious, clean and well-equipped. Although there... More

My family spent a day and a half in Iceland. We decided to book the Northern Lights tour and Golden Circle Tour with John from Solstice Tours. John was the perfect tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and personable. Our experience with Solstice Tours definitely exceeded our expectations. We couldn't have been happier!
