The Golden Circle is probably the most popular route of tourism in Iceland’s South country side. This tour includes stops at the National Park of Þingvellir, Geysir Geothermal Area, and Gullfoss waterfall.

This area is known for its warm and creamy blue waters. Area is world known as a geothermal must-visit pool since it´s silica works medical on skin.
The south coast of Iceland provides an amazing array of fascinating natural attractions that will be etched in your memory. In this tour you will have a chance to stop and see two waterfalls, the black sand beaches around Dyrhólaey and Reynisfjara and Vík.

The winter travel season is heading up next October 2022 until April 2023 and is mostly based on the Aurora borealis better known as Northern Lights.
Can you imagine the New Year’s Eve with the skies colored with green? In fact, the months with stronger activity and light are February and March. As most of the travelers know already, aurora isn’t promised on any way, but we are trying to do our best if needed to reschedule days or other variants to catch that phenomena.

Andres is simply the best! My mom and I were seeking a personalized tour of Iceland, so we took private tours to the South Coast and Golden Circle. We saw... read more waterfalls, geysers, craters and volcanos, but the tours were so much more than that. Andres went above and beyond to provide knowledge and Icelandic history, a perfect way to learn more about the country in the four days we visited.
Also on our first evening in Iceland, Andres made a point to call and let us know that the Northern Lights were visible if we were up for it. An unforgettable moment! We would highly recommend Mercury Grail tours to any travelers interested in a more customizable experience.

Andrés was a fantastic guide. Our first night was cancelled as Andres advised there was no chance of seeing the lights. The second night, Andres talked us through the likelihood... read more of seeing the lights and we decided to go for it. We didn’t have to drive far from the city before we saw the lights. We stayed out for a couple of hours, having taken Andres advice and saw the most amazing colors and show. I would and have recommended Andres as a great guide.

My group of 5 had a great trip with Andres. We left at 10 am from Reykjavik and hit all of the Golden Circle stops with a trip to the... read more Secret Lagoon. We arrived a little early for our Secret Lagoon reservation but he spoke with the staff and they let us in early. It was an enjoyable trip and Andres filled us in on what we needed to know and see at each stop. Coming back, he dropped us off at our dinner location and also helped us figure out luggage storage at the bus station. Thank you, Andres!

We took a 1 week tour across western and southern Iceland with Andres. Part of that tour included an overnight stay in the south coast and stops by glacier lagoon,... read more diamond beach, black sand beach, Dyrholaey, black waterfall, and foot of one of the glaciers, amongst other beautiful/scenic stops (i.e. Golden Circle, Snæfellsnes)
Easily the best private tour we have done throughout the different countries traveled to. You get to see all the regular known destinations and Andres also goes a step further to stop by some quieter and less common destinations. On the way to glacier lagoon he asked if we wanted to stop by a glacier that was on the way [Svinafellsjokull] which of course we said yes, and it was an amazing sight -- less people too. And then on the way back to Reykjavik, he took us to another glacier [Fjallsarlon] which wasn't originally planned on the itinerary, but he made the effort to stop and show us the beautiful glacier (which was highly appreciated because we got to hear the glacier ice cracking, which was amazing to witness)
Andres is also highly knowledgeable, very friendly and down to earth. If you're ever going to Iceland, even for just a few days, highly recommend Mercury Grail /Andres. You'll have a great experience and won't be disappointed.

Andres was amazing, but it wasn't just the actual tour that was so wonderful, it was also his help in building the perfect day for my wife and I. ... read more Our cruise ship was arriving in Reykjavik at 10:00 AM and departing the next day at 2:00. We wanted to do as much as possible in our first day with the limited time we had. We reached out to Andres for help. He worked with us to build a day trip that included everything we wanted to see including recommendations and insight for a spa experience. With his input we decided on a 7 ritual spa experience at the Sky Lagoon instead of the more touristy Blue Lagoon. It was a perfect way to end a wonderful day.
Adres was on-time, knowledgeable, and his sole focus was insuring we got the most value and enjoyment from our time together. If you are looking for a great private experience that will be stress free and perfectly and professionally delivered, Andres, owner of Mercury Grail is the way to go.

This was our first time in Iceland and... read more it was super nice to have a private tour to go outside of Reykjavík. We also were able to stop by a local ice-cream shop on the way, which was the best ice-cream we have ever had. Would totally recommend this tour and appreciated everything Andres did for us!
