This is truly the best way to get a nice overview of the city. I do it in every city to which I travel. The bus was warm and the windows were clean, so great for pictures!

Interesting commentary and an enjoyable bus tour. We got off at Perlan which was good and would recommend. Only downside is the 45 mins between buses and no specific timings shown at stops, which means it is a bit difficult to judge when to get to a stop, particularly if you walk between them to se something else. Also makes it more difficult to see all of the places as have to do everything on the 45 minute schedule. Also, quite short “24 hour” day as the last bus leaves Harpa at 1615. We got this on our last day as a 24 hr one, but I think a 48 hour ticket would be better if you want to “hop off” everywhere. Nice view of the city when it is cold or rainy though and good to see things that are a little further outside the city.

Unfortunately due to arriving late I could not activate the tour and so lost both days!
Deeply disappointed as I have a leg injury and was looking forward to seeing the city via the tour.

This clearly lays out the city. Good to Oreo t yourself for all the museums and hot springs, etc.. it’s about $30 US. 24 hour ticket. Can’t say it is like most cities, but you have to take the tour to see what the city is. No Westminster or Eiffel Tower, but if you want to learn about where you are it’s great and necessary. Comfortable seats with all the languages on earphones.

This was a great way to get a feel for Reykjavik. The bus driver was nice and commentary was well delivered. I feel like we hit the highlights and I knew where I wanted to explore when done.
