|Address:||Aðalstræti 6, Reykjavík, 101|
|Directions:||We meet up at Ingólfur Square in the center of Reykjavik by the two stone pillars (They are over 3 meters high with smoke coming up from the top). The Square is in front of Center Hotel Plaza, Aðalstræti 6. The Square is at the beginning of Austurstræti (Austurstræti 1) and is squared off by the streets Aðalstræti, Hafnarstræti, Veltusund, and Vallarstræti. If you walk down Laugavegur (The main shopping street) please just continue all the way down until you come to the square always walking straight down until you can't continue further. Don't go to the statue of Ingólfur Arnarsson or the statue of Jon Sigurdsson at Austurvöllur as that is not the starting point. We recommend using Google Maps or something similar because the Icelandic street names can be a little tricky.|

We sincerely hope you will enjoy your walk with Your Friend in Reykjavik and please don't be afraid to ask any questions during the tour.
Please dress according to the weather, because it can change very quickly in Iceland. We have a saying here that: If you don't like the weather, wait five minutes.
Please be at Ingolfur Square at least 5 minutes before the start time of the tour. It's very hard to guide people to where the guide is located if you are late and the tour has started.
