We can provide information on areas and building types ahead of your walking tour. For example a group of architects interested in Reykjavík office buildings could be provided with information allowing a tour programme to be agreed before their visit to Iceland. Visitors can be met from their accommodation or at the starting point of their Icelandic walking tour.
