We usually do the hop on hop off bus when visiting a new city to get our bearings and hear some general comments and history and Reykjavik was no exception. This hop on and hop off bus company does provide convent transportation to some of...More

Did the tour today. It was a waste of time and money. Recorded/played information during the tour was very poor. Only few interesting spots. Everything else was junk. They don't tell you much about the town or the history. Avoid them! Try another tour.

This tour is good for a very quick overview of town. We did the whole circuit and found anything worth seeing is within walking distance. At stop #5 we get off for the Maritime Museum and we find they are closed for the Spring season...More

We always book onto the city sightseeing bus when visiting a new city as we find it a great introduction. Unfortunately this was the second worst one we have been on (the worst being Milan). It is quite expensive (4000 ISK) and you could walk...More
