What to expect
  • 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.

Excellent Excursions and Service
Feb 2020
On our Reykjavik trip Gray Line provided several excursions. Pick up was always timely at hotel and drop off was back at the hotel. The initial sightseeing tour with host/driver Simon was fun and an excellent introduction to the city. Simon always had interesting stories about the many places we visited. We did not see the Northern Lights on our first try, but Gray Line allows for a second chance and we did see some lights our second night. Be prepared to spend some time outside in the cold to get a glimpse of the lights. We also took the Golden Circe tour with our guide filling in the history and a snow storm adding to the adventure. Geysers, the beautiful Gulfoss waterfall and the geology with the tectonic plates were amazing. And Gray Line got us back to the airport timely to get home.

Everyone except the first driver was very friendly, and our tour guides Christina- Northern Lights guide, Darren - Golden Circle guide and Easter was our second guide for the Northern Lights as we were unable to see the light the first time. All were lovely people and informative and made the tours we took interesting. All the guides are a credit to the company.

Enjoyed the tour
Mar 2019 • Couples
We did the Reykjavik tour first and stopped at Harpa Concert Hall, Residence of the President, Höfdi House, Perlan, Hallgrimskirkja. We always had enought time to take pictures.
In the afternoon we did the Golden Circle with tour guide Darren and driver Ingo. We stopped at Thingvellir, Gulfoss, Geysir / Strokkur.
Darren gave us good information and had a few stories to tell.
On the way back we got into some snow and the road was really bad. I was impressed by Ingo who had this huge bus under control and stayed completely cool on this way back. Thank you for the safe trip back. Would definitely recommend Gray Line.

City sight seeing was on a minibus and felt quite personal.
Golden circle was great and guide (John) very chatty and comical at times. Our driver was also great fun. Very informative throughout.
Ample time at all stops.
