I went in the winter where it is dark till 11:30-3 and nothing really opens until 12 pm. So I decided to take this tour that starts at 10 am. Our guide was very knowledgable and loved his city and welcomed any questions. I learned a lot and I did this on my first full day so I got a sense of where things are and what to do. Highly recommend!

We did the small group walking tour - our guide Sana??(sp) was fantastic! She was funny, engaging, and provided a great insight into life in Reykjavik. The smaller group (10 people) allowed us time to ask a variety of questions and made the tour more personable. Highly recommend!!

Amazing place. Such lovely painted buildings and the cathedral was an impressive centrepiece. Rainbow road was great and the Viking sculpture on the sea front was impressive. Lucky to see the Christmas decorations as we
Visited January 2nd and also the Christmas cat who fortunately didn’t eat us. Great shops and places to eat. Inside the cathedral is worth a visit as the organ is huge. Good to walk in daylight and at night as different experience.

Excellent! I highly recommend this tour! If you want to familiarize yourself with the city, learn about the city’s history, in the city’s history, and get a little exercise…then this is the perfect tour! Our guide Erik was AWESOME! He was engaging, funny, and full of information. He made the tour a lot of fun…and they only ask for a donation at the end of what you thought it was worth. A great activity to do when in Reykjavik!

Small group with an intimate feel. We had a younger guide who was very personable and informative. This tour gave us a good feel for the city centre, and how to find nightlife, food, drink, etc. After this tour, we didn't need a map. A lot of information that was very interesting.

Luca was absolutely AMAZING! We booked this tour months in advance and Luca reached out to make sure we that we were all set and if we had any questions to let him know. The tour was on our first day and very of our stay. Luca is very detailed, not rushed but went at a great pace! He brought us local food, drink and sweat treat to try.
I would highly recommend Luca. We even have reservations for one of the restaurants he suggested.
