I Heart Reykjavik is a small family run company in Reykjavik that specializes in one thing: making your stay in Reykjavik the best it can be. We do that by offering unique and interesting experiences and partnering with companies that we know will take good care of you. Our main product is the I Heart Reykjavik Walking Tour that has been featured in publications such as the New York Times, New York Magazine, Irish Times and on numerous travel blogs. If you need a bit more flexibility or you just want to keep your guide to yourself you can also look into booking our Private Walking Tour. Finally we just introduced a great new Crash Course in Icelandic which will be available from May 2015. We care about social responsibility, honesty and integrity and we try to reflect that in everything we do. We also love what we do and count our blessings every day. We heart this city and we want you to heart it too.

Are iPads allowed as carry on on flights into Iceland from US & then from Iceland back into US? I'm afraid it will be stolen in checked baggage. Thank you kindly for your response and please tell me how recently you flew.

Hi! We have an 8 hour layover in Reykjavik in May and would like to know the times this walking tour of the city is offered. Can it be booked at the airport or should we book ahead of time?
