  • Great experience! Absolutely recommended in order to get a walk over the city. Additionally they offer ideas about where to go and do. You can’t miss it!
  • We had Sarah today and she was both knowledgeable and very funny. There were frequent stops on the tour and it wasn't hard to hear or understand the information. WeveW been on two day trips and only a bit of the information was repeated, so it was very interesting and there were plenty of jokes thrown in. People could ask questions while we were walking between stops, and when a few people wanted coffee or a hotdog we waited for them or Sarah told them where to meet us so they could catch up. You have to book this in advance and arrive ten minutes before the start time. At the end you give whatever you want as a donation. I would definitely recommend, maybe better at the start of your trip but still good nearer the end.
  • A fantastic tour of Reykjavik from Tomas. He was knowledgeable, funny and generally a great guide. We found out lots of things about Iceland that were very interesting and we are incredibly glad we did this tour. Its advertised as free but it's easily comparable to many UK tours that are costly. We'd strongly recommend this to anyone going to Reykjavik (and would even if it wasn't 'free'). Our biggest concern was that we'd given less money than the tour was worth!
  • A must do tour in Reykjavik. Our guide Jo was awesome! We learned a lot of history and interesting/funny stories of Reykjavik. A nice 2 hr walk around the city center. Don’t forget to book your slot at the city walk website and be there 10minutes before your tour. Tips/donations are welcomed in any currency and even credit card so don’t be shy to reward the fantastic guide of a great city tour.
  • It's one of those must do things when you start your trip in Reykjavik. It will give you a good feel on how to plan your next few days. Tomas was very charismatic and friendly. Arrived a little late but was all ok as I caught up and signed in. Do book online for them to be expecting you. The tips were generally very useful and nothing pushy or trying to take you to a tourist trap.
