The tour guide was exceptional. He was very knowledgeable and fun. I lost one of my gloves at the Globe and he offered to try to get it when he went back with his afternoon tour. Well he did find it and personally dropped it back at my hotel. I don’t remember his name but my tour was on Wed morning on March 11. He was also multi-lingual and gave his tour in several languages accommodating everyone by speaking their language. Whoever gets my tour guide will be blessed.

It was great to do to see the city and it’s history. It makes it easier to see what sites to stop and hop off. Bus was clean and friendly driver.

The service was wonderful, always on time, we had a guy that spoke 5 languages, Pablo, he was so helpful an nice. I highly recommend this service

Great way to see the highlights of Reykjavik, don't forget to pick up the ear phones as you enter the bus to listen to the audio guide!

The tour was very interesting. German was also offered as the language.
