Product delivery

The customer(s) will receive by email a booking confirmation and a receipt for the purchase of the tour booked on goldencircledaytours.com or any Golden Circle Day Tours-affiliated sites. Customer(s) are required to present the receipt on an electronic device or print out when boarding the local operators’ buses. The customers will also receive a booking number that is required to change or cancel a booking.

It is the customers’ responsibility to contact the local operator’s Customer Support team regarding the details of their booking(s) - the number of passengers, contact details, pickup time and location. Should the customers fail to contact the appropriate Customer Support team in due time, we will not accept any liability for losses or mistakes.

Cancellation right / right to return and refund

For rescheduling, rebooking and canceling please contact via e-mail the local operator in charge of your tour and include your booking number.

All cancellations from customers should be notified via email to info@goldencircledaytours.is at least 24 hours prior to pickup time.

  • if a cancellation request from a customer is received with more than 24-hour notice, a full refund is given.
  • if a cancellation request from a customer is received with less than 24-hour notice or if the customers are a “no-show”, the trip will be charged full price.

Guests who are unable or unwilling to finish their tour due to their own personal decision or due to unforeseen circumstances such as sickness will be considered as a late cancellation and as such will not be automatically entitled to any refund either in part or in full. Based on availability the local operator may offer the guest to reschedule but this decision is made entirely at the discretion of the local operator and will be taken on a case by case basis.

Price and Payment

Please note that prices online can change without notice. The relevant price for a tour booked through our website(s) is always the one displayed to you during checkout when you enter your name and contact details.The official price catalog is always the one that is published in our brochure. For the duration of the validity of the brochure, a customer can request to book for this price. The price on our website(s) can differ from the official price catalog.

Passport, VISAS & Insurance

It is the responsibility of all passengers, regardless of nationality and destination, to check with the consulate of the country they are visiting for current entry requirements.

As visa and health requirements are subject to change without notice, we recommend that you verify health and visa requirements with the appropriate consulate prior to departure.

As a customer of Golden Circle Day Tours, it is your responsibility to contract a personal health and travel insurance. Iceland is known for its ever changing weather and unforeseen cancellations due to weather can occur with very short notice. The local operators will not be responsible for any injuries, losses or theft while on their tours.


Golden Circle Day Tours does not operate any tours but directs you to tours operated by operators and service providers in Iceland. Neither does Golden Circle Day Tours charge users any fees, and as such, can not be liable for any accidents, losses, injuries, damages, delays, expenses due to any action or inaction on the part of the operator, guide or his/her services.

The same goes with our locals. Anyone knowledgeable about Iceland can maintain a blog in Contact a Local, provided they have a clean criminal record. Locals agree to blog and offer services under their own names and/or companies, and as such, Golden Circle Day Tours can not be liable for any infringement of copyright, accidents, losses, injuries, damages, delays, expenses due to any action or inaction on their part, services or product.

If you have any complaints about a tour or a local you were directed to through www.goldencircledaytours.com please let us know so we can help you address your grievances.

The email info@goldencircledaytours.com directs to our project manager.

As the terms and conditions of each tour operator may vary, please read the terms and conditions of each operator you have purchased a tour from.
