What You Can Expect
Visit the presidential residence at Bessastadir, built between 1761 and 1766 and home to Iceland's president. You’ll also stop in the town of Hafnarfjordur, famous for having one of the largest settlements of elves and other mystical beings known as the "hidden folk." You will also visit the old fishing harbor and when possible, the famous fish market.
In Reykjavik you'll go to the Perlan building, which was built on water tanks that hold the city's hot water supply. Here you can enjoy the spectacular view over Reykjavik and its surroundings from Perlan’s top-floor revolving restaurant.
Explore Hofdi House in northern Reykjavik, where the all-important summit between President Ronald Reagan and Secretary General Mikhail Gorbachev took place in 1986. You will also visit Hallgrimskirkja (the largest church in Iceland and one of its tallest structures), the University of Iceland area and the old town center, where the Icelandic parliament Althingi and the town hall are situated.
End your day with a tour of the sports and recreation center in Laugardalur, where you’ll find a geothermal outdoor swimming pool and sculptures crafted by Asmundur Sveinsson.
This tour is great with those with mobility issues and provides a great chance to see Reykjavik and the surrounding area. The guide spoke excellent English, was friendly and answered all questions asked of him. Great value for the money.
Wonderful guide. We would never have learned so much history and seen all the sites had we not done this tour. Excellent
Really enjoyed this trip on our first morning in Reykjavik. Friendly guide and a great introduction to the city. Some great photo opportunities.
We have Seen a lot
The tour guide was friendly; knowledgable and had very good English. The only downside was the lack of alternative timings and the duration which could be longer!
very good !! highly recommend
This was an interesting tour of Reykjavik and surrounding areas, which proved a good introduction to Iceland. The tour guide was friendly and very informative. From this, we were able to work out the areas which warranted further exploration. Most enjoyable!!
Great value trip, a chance to see all the main highlights of Reykjavik in one morning!
Guide was informative and plenty of opportunities for photos. Great view from the top of the pearl.
If you only have a short amount of time this is a great tour to take! Just wished that we had more time at the church to go up the elevator to the top as the view is supposed to be spectacular on a clear day.
Very good - saw all the main attractions and was able to leave the tour at the Cathedral to explore the main shopping street.
