Tour description provided by Viator

This grand Golden Circle tour takes you to the most popular sights where you can experience the three highlights of the South West of Iceland: Geysir, Gulfoss Waterfall and Þingvellir National Park. Plus you will visit the volcanic crater lake Kerið.
This grand Golden Circle tour takes you to southwest Iceland's most popular attractions with the help and knowledge of a local guide. Begin your day with pickup from your designated pickup location in central Reykjavik. Visit Geysir geothermal area, where the most active hot spring Strokkur spouts steaming water up to 30 meters high into the air every eight minutes. Then see Gullfoss, or the 'Golden Falls,' an iconic waterfall located in the glacial river Hvítá. Watch the water plummet down into the 32-meter-deep crevice. Afterward, make your way to the historical and geological wonder of  Þingvellir National Park, where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart from each other at a rate of few centimeters per year. Þingvellir has sat proudly on the UNESCO World Heritage list since 2004. Top off the tour with included entry to Kerið, a volcanic crater lake roughly 890 feet (270 m) long and 180 feet (55 m) deep. After a full day of sightseeing, you will conclude with drop-off at your original departure point.
