The tour begins at the old Höfði house where the historic summit between American president Ronald Reagan and Russian president Mikhail Gorbatsjov took place in 1986. Höfði house is also believed to be home to a ghost known as the White Lady.

Next up is the city centre where we will see the infamous Hallgrímskirkja church, whose unique design was inspired by the basalt lava columns—a common volcanic rock formation in Icelandic nature.

I originally booked for 5 of us friends. Very easy to book online. One friend had to cancel- I only emailed Grayline and I got my refund. I also booked the other tours- Reykjavic City tour, South Coast/Glacier Lagoon tour and Golden Circle with Grayline- all with no hassle.
Easy, once I found your specific webpage.
Prompt hotel pickup, small group city tour. Tour guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable and humorous. A good way to get to know the city of Reykavic.
