Discover the best sights in and around Reykjavik city by booking this four-hour private guided tour. Those eager to enjoy a fully customizable experience visiting the top attractions of Iceland's capital should book this tour now.

Your private driver-guide will pick you up from your Reykjavik accommodation in an Audi Q8. From there, you can choose the attractions you visit or let your guide offer their recommendations. On today's tour, you'll also have the choice of a guided hike in Reykjavik's outskirts or a tour of the National Museum of Iceland.

Reykjavik is a vibrant city boasting many noteworthy cultural, historical, and modern attractions. You won't run out of inspiring sights to see with galleries, theaters, iconic churches, beautiful city parks, and several top-rated museums.

Hallgrimskirkja church is a must-visit attraction. With its 240-foot (73-meter) tower and striking modern design, it commands quite a presence in the city center. Hallgrimskirkja is the tallest church in Iceland, and you can head up the church's observation tower to enjoy sweeping panoramic views of the city.

The National Museum of Iceland houses historical artifacts from settlement to the modern day. Those interested in learning about Iceland's culture and heritage will enjoy having the option of a private guided tour here.

This picturesque city offers beautiful green spaces and scenic waterfront areas for relaxation. Tjornin park is next to the National Museum, so you can take a moment to enjoy some city-center serenity here before heading to the harbor area.

The Harper Concert Hall and Conference Center, the Sun Voyager sculpture, and Hofdi historical house are three of the noteworthy waterfront attractions you can enjoy. Ensure you've got your camera handy as you walk along the waterfront path and enjoy the views.

Don't miss a stroll down Laugavegur shopping street during this tour. Beautiful street art adorns colorful houses in this shopping street full of cafes, bars, and restaurants. Your friendly guide will highlight some local favorites you might want to visit after your tour.

Those who enjoy walking and nature may choose a guided hike outside the city instead of a museum tour. Breathe in the fresh air and take in your gorgeous natural surroundings, just a stone's throw from the city.

The choice is yours regarding your itinerary on this private, guided city tour. Perlan museum has a fantastic observation deck for panoramic city vistas, so you might ask your driver to take you there. 

Or, you could visit Nautholsvík geothermal beach with its golden sands and warm-water lagoon. Your driver will take you back to your Reykjavik accommodation after the tour.
