“Reykjavik City Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2013

If you think you have seen it all just by walking the heart of the city, you will be surprised by this tour offered by Icelandic Excursions. Not only do you get to see the city centre with a whole load of interesting buildings, but also a trip to the president's house, a lot of gossip (purely based on facts) la perla and a short tour outside town. the guide was very informative and entertaining making what we thought would be a rather dry trip a very funny tour.

“Unique”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2013

If you have a chance to go to Iceland then visiting the capital city centre is a must. No other capital will give you such an experience during the day or during the nights. You should definately visit the city centre by foot and try to understand the historical background of some buildings. Take the opportunity to try the local pastries in any of the bakaries, have a delciously fresh fish for lunch (why not sushi) and enjoy the nighlife (on weekends) as it is highly sought after accross europe.

“OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2013

It's a good way of getting your bearings, and the guide we had was good, unfortunately when you set off at 9.00am and it doesn't come light till about 10.30ish you can't see a lot to start with.

“Sightseeing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2012

A City tour is a one of the best ways to get to see the sights of this friendly, safe city. We visited on a Sunday when it was very quiet. Probably because the day before had been gay pride so everyone may have been recovering. Lots to see here and time to go back to spend more time at any highlights seen during the tour. Pity the weather was not so good but this is Iceland and we did see the sun. Great place to be.
