Well, this has been a long time coming…
Today I am extremely proud and happy to tell you about my new little project: I Heart Reykjavík Tours. I’ve been working on it almost non-stop since December: jumping through Icelandic bureaucracy hoops, trying to teach myself accounting, reading 100 year old news articles and history books, figuring out the appropriate price points and how to set up a payment gateway and all kinds of other things I never knew I would have to know. Starting a company is hard work, ya’ll, especially when you don’t really have any money to spend on it and you have to rely on yourself for most things.
I almost feel like an over-protective mom about this whole thing. I gave birth to this idea and nurtured it to the point where it’s now ready to leave the nest and take on the whole wide world on its own. All I can hope for now is that the world is ready for it.
In the walking tour I will take you around the city and tell you a little bit about its history and famous landmarks along with showing you where some of my favorite places are located. If you ask me nicely I might include a secret spot or two that you will not read about in any guidebooks. It’s going to be small and intimate, with max 12 participants, and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to ask me any questions you might have about Reykjavík. The tour will go daily from April 1st at 10am from Hallgrímskirkja church.
I decided to add the Photo Session to the selection simply because lately I’ve been contacted by quite a lot of people, mostly couples, asking me to take their pictures during their visit. So I thought I’d make it easier for everyone and make a bookable tour out of it and include a private tour around the city. You learn a little something and you will bring home beautiful memories of you and your loved ones.
So, I hope you will come on this journey with me by booking my tours and I will do my best to make it worth your while. The first person to book the I Heart Reykjavík walking tour will get a great prize on the tour they book so hurry up and make a booking!
