What You Can Expect

Reykjavik Sightseeing including Gullfoss and Geysir Express Tour

Gulfoss Waterfall, Iceland

Start with a hotel pickup and then travel into downtown Reykjavik by coach for your city tour. The route takes in places of historical interest as well as some of the modern and quirky sights around the city.
Stop at Bessastadir, the stately residence of Iceland’s president, and then continue to Hofdi House where the historic 1986 summit took place between Ronald Regan and Mikhail Gorbachev. Have your camera ready for the futuristic Perlan restaurant, which is built on tanks containing the city’s hot water supply, and admire Hallgrimskirkja, a Lutheran church that’s one of the country’s tallest buildings.
Other highlights include the geothermal Laugardalur pool with its Sveinsson-designed sculptures, and the nearby harbor town of Hafnarfjordur, home to a mythical community of ‘hidden folk.’
When your morning city tour ends, head out on your express Gullfoss and Geysir excursion that handily takes in Thingvellir, too. Visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site and learn about its ancient parliament that was established there many centuries ago. The spot is also home to the intersection of the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates, and your guide will explain the area’s unique geology.
Continue to the thundering waters of Gullfoss, one of Iceland’s most impressive falls, and then on to the bubbling hot springs of Strokkur and Geysir.
Your tour then ends with a hotel drop-off back in Reykjavik.

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.
