Golden Ring in June....small tour options?

I'll be in Reykjavik for an entire day and then at least Saturday morning - the airline keeps moving our flight out - and am wondering if anyone can recommend a small group tour? I'd prefer something smaller than about 12 people. I've also heard about a Whale Safari and wondering if anyone has taken it?

Thanks!

I just booked the golden circle tour with this company Reykjavik Sightseeing, through expedia. They did have a smaller group one however it was double the cost so I opted with the regular tour.

Can I ask what airline you are flying with?

Lisa,
We did a Golden Circle tour with GeoIceland in Sept 2016. (We had a 19 hour layover due to poor flight scheduling on my part) They picked us up for the tour at the bus depot in a mini bus. Other passengers were picked up at various other locations. The driver/guide was excellent and the group was small. We even stopped to photograph some Icelandic ponies that were next to the road.

The tour was a great way to see some of Iceland's beauty.

I have to say we thought the Golden Circle was a waste of time with the exception of the falls. We were there in August and the weather sucked. We are from the Pacific NW and are used to stormy weather but it was horrible. Probably just bad luck for us. Lots and Lots of tour buses on the Golden Circle road though. enjoy
