Reykjavik Sightseeing including Gullfoss and Geysir Express Tour

Gulfoss Waterfall, Iceland

Highlights of your morning include:

  • The Presidential residence at Bessastadir home to Iceland's President.
  • Visit the town of Hafnarfjordur, famous for having one of the largest settlements of mystical beings known as the "hidden folk".
  • Restaurant Perlan is built on water tanks that hold the city's hot water supply. Enjoy the spectacular view over Reykjavik and its surroundings.

In the afternoon, your tour continues with the Gullfoss and Geysir Express half-day trip. The tour begins with a visit to Thingvellir, a geologically unique place where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet. The Icelandic parliament Althingi was established here in 930, and in 2004 Thingvellir was added to UNESCO's World Heritage List.

You will also see the majestic and beautiful waterfall Gullfoss, the incredible spouting hot springs of Geysir and Strokkur. After a visit to the village of Hveragerdi, with its large greenhouses cultivating all manner of fruit, vegetables and flowers, the tour returns to the capital.

Lovely tour, cheerful guide and refreshing experience. This is the safest place in the world. We actual stood in front of the president's home. No security just the welcoming coastal waters welcoming you. Amazing!

It was a very informative tour of Reykjavik and attractions around the area. I found it to be very good for a our short stay in Iceland and it gives you a good impression of the main attractions of the city and its surroundings.

This tour was fantastic and you get to see the main tourist hotspots in one go. It is a long day with lots of time on the coach but there is so much to see that it isn't boring and the stops make it well worth the trip. Would definitely recommend.

Despite doing this trip in the middle of winter it was well worth doing and a wonderful way of seeing the landscape outside of Reykjavik. The guide and driver were excellent and very informative. Would highly recommend

We got a great feel for 2 different areas all in one day. Combining both for same day was perfect for our time frame.

Tour exceeded our expectations. The people of Iceland are extremely gracious hosts and are willing to share their history, culture, personal opionions.
In fact the locals have convinced me that elves exist!
The true measure of a successful tour is whether one will spend the time and money to return and invest in other Viator tours of Iceland. I will.
A travelor of 100+ countries.

This was a great way to see parts of Iceland. The your is broken up in that the iTunes tour is on a separate bus and does allow for at least 1.5 hours to go get lunch before the second half of the tour gets started.

This was excellent. In the morning we were the only two on the tour and had our own personal guide. The guides are very good and speak perfect English. The company is very well organised and we were picked up at our hotel on time and dropped off again afterwards. The tour itself was very interesting and informative.
