Full description
Combine the Greater Area Reykjavik Sightseeing and Golden Circle Express tours, and make the most of your day out exploring Reykjavik and Iceland. Start your tour of Iceland's capital city with a visit the Presidential Residence at Bessastaðir and Hafnarfjörður, the town where humans and the "hidden people" of Icelandic legends live together in harmony. Stop at Perlan Restaurant, where you have an incredible view over Reykjavík and its surroundings. You'll also visit Hallgrímskirkja Church, the University area and the Old Town Center, where you can see the Alþingi–Iceland's Parliament. You'll have free time to have lunch and explore colorful Reykjavik on your own before continuing on to the Icelandic countryside and Þingvellir National Park, renowned for its historic legacy and geological intrigue.

Great way to get a taste of Iceland in just one day.

it would have been helpful to have a map for the morning part of the tour. Sometime she was telling us that the building was on the right or the left but there were times when I didn't know exactly which building she was referring to. Also where to originally meet the tour was a little confusing. Other than that, the guides were helpful and friendly. I learned a lot of really interesting information about Iceland and it's history.
