Essential Reykjavik
Our guide, Erik, was the best! He showed us all of the essential spots in Reykjavik while providing stops in City Hall and Harpa to warm up. Best tour in town and a must to complete your visit.
Reykjavík “Free” Walking Tour
10/10!
I was just in for ten hours on a layover and decided to go on a tour to get to know the city. I was presently surprised about the guide (Sarah?) and her great enthusiasm and I enjoyed getting to know more about the silly and inspiring history and present of Iceland.
Reykjavík “Free” Walking Tour
Amazing
We are a family of 5 travelling with a 10 year old daughter and grandma and grandad in their 70’s. We have just been on the 1 hour buggy tour with Toni. He was a fantastic guide. Very knowledgeable of the area and extremely personable. The trip was amazing the views and terrain was varied and we stopped at the top of a mountain with amazing views over Reykjavík. I would highly recommend this to anyone. A big thank you to Toni for making it so enjoyable.
1-Hour Buggy Safari in the Icelandic Nature Outside Reykjavík
Incredible Experience
AMAZING! This experience was wonderful. The company was very organized and professional. I loved that they split the group in two: one for the more advanced riders and the other for the beginners. Beginners could also join the faster group if they felt comfortable trying it out. I was a beginner that tried the faster group and the experience was unbelievable! The horses were so beautiful and it was incredible to experience their different gaits. I felt very in tune with the horse in different parts and the scenery was beautiful. If I had had time I would have booked another trip! Highly recommend this experience :D
Horse Riding Tour in a Lava Field near Reykjavík
Brilliant - would do it again!
This horse riding tour was fantastic. We went on the 2 hours lava field walk. They break you off into experienced and beginner groups. Beginner group goes at a nice walking pace so you can take in the countryside views. They do break off again if you gain confidence and want to move a little quicker. We chose to stay on the nice saunter pace walk and thoroughly enjoyed it. By and large the horses follow each other but some of the naughtier ones are more fun to handle. The guides seem to know which ones those are and keep a good eye on you without following you everywhere you go. Guides are really friendly and take photos for you half way around which was a nice added bonus. There is a coffee / tea / very light snack selection there for afterwards if you're so inclined. Would definitely go back again and again, really enjoyed it.

Iceland South Coast Day Tour from Reykjavík
Excellent. Highly recommended.
Oscar, our tour guide, was very informative and friendly. The tour took us through beautiful sites and explained the history and interesting facts about each place. He even sang us an Icelandic lullaby on the way back! Great tour, highly recommended!
Iceland South Coast Day Tour from Reykjavík
Fantastic tour
Erik was a great guy, positive, enthusiastic, intelligent, and with very interesting information about places we visited. I learned about Reykjavík history, anecdotes of streets, neighborhoods, houses, natives. After the tour, I could explain to others (foreigners and natives too) what I learned about the city. Highly recommended!

Reykjavík “Free” Walking Tour
Excellent tour
We decided to take this tour on our 1st morning in Rekyajavik...and very glad we did. This was a great way to see most of the city's highlights and plan where to go and what to do for the rest of our stay. Pace was comfortable for all. Our guide (sorry, it was 6maths ago and i can'take remember his name) was very friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. I highly recommend anyone to take this tour - and please tip as you see fit.

Reykjavík “Free” Walking Tour
Superb Walking tour
We went on the Reykjavik 'Free' Walking Tour in Feb 2017 and were so pleased that we did. Joe was our guide and he really made the experience very enjoyable. He was extremely knowledgeable, witty and made the tour very interesting. We attended the Tour on our first morning in Reykjavik which just happened to be the day when over 80 cm of snow had fallen during the previous night! The tour still went ahead (other tours by other companies got cancelled) and was fun with all of the snow. We learned such a lot from Joe that morning and this saved us loads of time during our holiday as we could put our knowledge to good use. I would thoroughly recommend to anyone visiting the beautiful city of Reykjavik to book up for this tour.
Reykjavík “Free” Walking Tour
Amazing
An amazing way to start off our vacation in Reykjavik. Met some cool people from all over the world that my wife and I continued to hang out with after the pub crawl was done. You will not regret Lebowski bar by the way. "E" was a phenomenal host and he introduced us to the beautiful city and bars of Reykjavik in a way that left us in awe, and yearning for more.

I did the Food and Bar Crawl
I had a great time on the food tour as well as the bar crawl. It was a great way to meet new people who were also traveling to Reykjavik and share stories. The white Russian with Coco Puffs at the Lebowski Bar is highly recommended!

5-stars for the Reykjavík Food Walk and its guide
I was really surprised by how great this tour was. I really just signed up for it to kill a few hours the day I arrived in Reykjavik while I was waiting to get picked up by another tour. I guess I was just expecting to kind of learn my way around the area while sampling some small bits of food. It turned out, we went to seven different restaurants/bars/cafés where they fed us generously and I was STUFFED by the halfway point. I can't say enough about the guide, Egill (pronounced AY-ick), who designed the tour himself based on his own favorite spots around the city. You could absolutely tell how into the subject he was—that this wasn't just a list of places handed to him—and that he truly enjoyed taking us to places where he eats and telling us all about the city and Iceland in general along the way. I am so glad I picked this as the first thing I did when I arrived in Iceland. It was the perfect way to get introduced to the culture, language, and my way around the downtown area so that when I came back later, I could find my way. He made all the little things we learned about the country and city so interesting and with enough variety without just droning endlessly with information. For the rest of my week vacationing here, I recommended this tour to a bunch of people. At first, I almost didn't book it because it looked kind of pricey for what I thought would be just a little bit of food sampling, but I have to say it was WORTH EVERY PENNY (or krona, whatever). Much thanks to Egill for introducing me to some incredible restaurants (one of which I returned to my last day) and starting my vacation off perfectly.
The Reykjavík Food Walk
Expensive (everything in Iceland is), but worth it!
A friend of mine and I went on both the beer tour and the food tour; both were excellent! The beer tour included 4 bars, 3 full-size glasses of beer, 8 tasting sized beers, and a shot of Brennivin. On top of that, we got an excellent history lesson on beer in Iceland. The nerd in me loved it! Our food tour was equally excellent. I think we had 6 different food stops and a lot of traditional food that I would never have found on my own. If you're concerned about the cost, just suck it up and book it, and be prepared for everything to be expensive in Iceland. Iceland is generally kind of like taking a vacation at a ballpark...a $3 beer in the US is $10 in Iceland.

Reykjavik Food Tour
Wonderful way to learn the culture and city through the food. We met Alexandra, our guide, at the Harpa and spent the next 4 hours eating our way through Reykjavik. We ate lamb stew, a cheese shop where we ate cheese and pates, rye bread ice cream at Cafe Loki, fish soup at Kopar, the famous Icelandic hot dog at the hot dog stand, and finally a rich dessert at Apotek. Don't eat a big breakfast before the tour. Alexandra was fun and very knowledgable. If you like food great way to spend 4 hours.

Must do while in Iceland!
I went on the food tour not really knowing what to expect--and it was seriously awesome! You go on a fair amount of stops and eat some seriously delicious food. Thankfully, the portions are really reasonable and you're not left feeling as though you have eaten an entire buffet or two! The walking isn't at all strenuous and you get to see a fair amount of the city on the way. It's a great way to get to know the town of Reykjavik and the culture of Iceland. Our tour guide, Dan, was super friendly and passionate. He was very knowledgeable and was genuinely interested in getting to know about the people on the tour. Not only that, but he has a great demeanor and makes the tour really fun! If you're interested in the tour, make sure you bring decent walking shoes, weather appropriate clothing and a good appetite! While the portions may not be huge, it will definitely fill you up by the end. I also recommend bringing a camera to take photos of the food that you eat--it's plated really well. All in all, 10/10--awesome tour!

We had an amazing time with our guide Egill, who showed us some stops around Reykjavik we wouldn't have been able to see otherwise. We were taken to a great meat and cheese place, tried some amazing rye bread ice cream, had some tasty soups, and tried one of the famous hot dogs. Highly recommend this tour and Egill!!
