Reykjavik Tourist Bus
15 reviews | 113 travellers
Reykjavik is a city that can be visited well on foot but there are places to go on this bus, such as the Perlan building, far from the center but almost a must, the Höfði house or the Church of Hallgrímskirkja with its views from the tower in the upper part of Reykjavik. It is not crazy to go to these places on foot but if you find it difficult to walk, you are lazy or it is winter, book it. You can get to everything by bus line and it is easy to know which one to take with Google Maps.
