  • Excellent for the knowledge and the travel represents everything was very good in all ways and always seemed interested and answered all questions we asked, would recommend him highly

  • I loved this walking tour, the guide was so much fun. The weather was really cold and windy but our guide made sure we had some 'inside' stops to refuel and get a coffee. He took us across the city center and provided very thoughtful commentary along the way with some fabulous Icelandic dry humour. I highly recommend this tour as it shows you parts of the town you may miss if you were to do it on your own.

  • A list of what would be seen would have been helpful.

  • I enjoyed it but I also did a food walking tour, the city is so small that there was lots of overlap so i'd recommend doing the food one because you get food too but the tour itself and the guide were very good.

  • A very good walking tour of the city. Slow paced and well explained.

  • Excellent went to some places we wouldn't have known about and the young Icelandic guide was excellent

  • Our guide was very patient and keen on Icelandic history and key point that are relevant to today's issues climate, ecology, conservation, social, arts, and political issues. He was very kind stopping several times to accommodate the pacing of my aunt who just had femoral surgery a year ago. He was just a wealth of information that gave us a unique insight into a typical Icelandic day - for babies, kids, and adults. If you want to learn about the non-touristy facts that make Iceland what it is today...join this tour. This is not your run of the mill tour that you can read in the web...

    We actually went out and followed his advice to dine at the Place with No Name for pizza! Awesome!

    I'd go out with him again!

  • My girlfriend and I am so happy we booked this tour. Loved every minute of it. Our guide was hilarious, smart, spoke clearly and gave us incredible insight into the history and culture of this beautiful country. I strongly recommend anyone to do this walking tour.

  • Our tour guide Hilli ? was great. We saw all the quintessential tourist spots Hallgrim Church, Harpa, Parliament House, etc. plus some not-so-famous places with a bit more local flair. Our guide was friendly and informative. We loved learning some Icelandic history and culture. We'd definitely recommend!

  • Great value for money. We had 3 and a half hours with Haffi who was funny and very knowledgeable. Packed in lots of sights, got a massive amount of info, not just about the places we visited but also about Oceland generally and the Icelandic language. Would not hesitate to recommend this tour.
