this guy is awesome!! as he puts it in his information:
"Being informative is important to me, as well as delivering the history in a simple manner. The tour mustn‘t only be constant history and numbers of years to remember, it has to be about modern facts and has to have a fun side too. I will give life to the dead buildings around you and tell you the story behind every statue we see on our route. Then there is also the funny facts you didn‘t know about Iceland.”
and i will have to say that its exactly how his tour is! he is an easygoing genuin guy describing the history of iceland and reykjavik informatively but in a fun an interesting way. it didn’t even matter that it was a cold and a bit rainy day!

i really recommend taking this tour!

Don't miss this.....entertaining, informative, creative and meaningful....

Martin is passionate about his city and his country and provides a wonderful introduction to its history, both "ancient" and modern. It's is so worth the two hours to acclimate yourself to the city and gain insight and perspective...not to mention you will smile and laugh along the way; Martin has a unique style well suited to adults of all ages.

Enjoy!

Took the morning tour with Marteinn on 8/22/2014. We are an active couple in our early 50s and had my 80 year old mother-in-law with us. It is a walking tour of the downtown area and we covered about a mile or so of walking. The pace isn't fast as there are lots of stops.

Marteinn is very passionate about sharing the history of his country and its capital city. He keeps the conversation light and has a great way of presenting the information to make it interesting. He also has a good sense of humor which he leverages frequently during the tour. We learned quite a bit about Iceland and Reykjavik during the tour and highly recommend it. During our tour of the city Marteinn guided us to major points of interest and also showed us things that spoke more to the local culture and day to day life in Reykjavik. As others have mentioned he does also provide info on places to eat and reviews/links to other attractions in Iceland.

Take the tour... it's free so what have you got to lose :) But I can guarantee you will want to leave him a big tip at the end as you will be impressed by Marteinn and his tour.
