We were there 10 days and did mix of self drive and guided tours.

We did the excellent Gourmet Golden Circle tour with Ymir at Magical Iceland (see maximumhoo recommendation in this thread). This was an all day tour, and I highly recommend it as it hits the big tourist sights, but also a few off the beaten path sights and great food and drink. And Ymir is great ... funny, knowledgable, a great host and guide.

We also did an all-day tour of Snaefelsness Peninsula with a different tour guide who's name and company I do not recall, but he was with one of the big companies. This guy was also very good. In between these 2 tours we drove around the country ourselves. We loved it! Whether you want to do week-plus drive around country or a few days is up to you. If only do a few days, do Ymir's Golden Circle tour. Then maybe a day in Reykjavik. I also highly recommend a day in Snaefelsness Peninsula, especially if not seeing entire country, as this area is somewhat of a "snapshot" or microcosm of the entire country. I also highly recommend Vik area and Jokulsarlon (Glacial Lagoon), but that would be difficult if there for only a few days.
