Reykjavik: Sightseeing Walking Tour with a Viking

1. Reykjavik: Sightseeing Walking Tour with a Viking

This walking tour is your introduction to Reykjavik. It will help you get your bearings and make the most of your stay in Iceland. Your guide will be your friend in the city with the goal to make sure you have the best time while in Reykjavik. This family friendly tour brings the history of Iceland to life with interesting stories and Icelandic mythology. You’ll visit all of the famous landmarks in the city center such as Harpa concert hall, Hallgrímskirkja Church (your guide will teach you how to pronounce that) and the Reykjavik pond. Your guide will also share hidden, local spots with you; things you’d miss if you didn’t know what to look for. Your guide will show you their favorite places to eat, drink and visit plus insider info on the best happy hour deals, should you be interested. The tour lasts approximately two hours and you’ll walk around 4 kilometers. This is a small-group tour, meaning there will never be more than 12 people on a tour at a time so that your guide can answer all of your questions and you can get to know each other a bit better. The aim of this tour is for you to experience the unique, friendly atmosphere of Reykjavik, not just to see the most popular tourist attractions. You'll even get a small lesson on the Icelandic language from your guide so that you can not only walk like a viking, but talk like one too.

We enjoyed our walking tour through Reykjavik. Unfortunately it was drizzling the whole time, so make sure to bring your jacket and don't trust sunny skies! The tour had a nice balance between Icelandic history, mythology, and interesting insights into current Icelandic culture and attitudes. There were a few points when it was difficult to hear the guide as he would speak in another direction, and that's my only complaint. The pace is good, especially because you don't want to stand in one spot for long when the weather is cold or rainy.

Stephan was our Viking guide for the two hour tour. He was on time, took his time & did not rush through the tour. He was knowledgeable and had recommendations for places to see & eat. Was also helpful to other lost traveler’s who were looking for places. Over all great experience.

The four of us had an interesting city tour with our guide from Getyourguide. She was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Iceland and also about the Iceland of today. We saw many interesting landmarks and some cool architecture.

Super nice Viking! was also able to answer all of our questions, it was a really successful tour, relaxed, funny. We even got a "private concert" at Hallgrimskirja. 5x thumbs up.

Thor was a great guide. We ended up having a private tour- just the four of us in our family on the day we arrived from the US. A great way to get acclimated to the city and the history.
