We enjoyed our walking tour through Reykjavik. Unfortunately it was drizzling the whole time, so make sure to bring your jacket and don't trust sunny skies! The tour had a nice balance between Icelandic history, mythology, and interesting insights into current Icelandic culture and attitudes. There were a few points when it was difficult to hear the guide as he would speak in another direction, and that's my only complaint. The pace is good, especially because you don't want to stand in one spot for long when the weather is cold or rainy.

Stephan was our Viking guide for the two hour tour. He was on time, took his time & did not rush through the tour. He was knowledgeable and had recommendations for places to see & eat. Was also helpful to other lost traveler’s who were looking for places. Over all great experience.

The four of us had an interesting city tour with our guide from Getyourguide. She was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Iceland and also about the Iceland of today. We saw many interesting landmarks and some cool architecture.

Super nice Viking! was also able to answer all of our questions, it was a really successful tour, relaxed, funny. We even got a "private concert" at Hallgrimskirja. 5x thumbs up.

Thor was a great guide. We ended up having a private tour- just the four of us in our family on the day we arrived from the US. A great way to get acclimated to the city and the history.
