This group does a great job of introducing you to Iceland, where to go and the history of this country. Tour guide Thor was excellent. Icelandic people are great story tellers.

We had a great time on this tour even though it was a little chilly. I've looked at their website and want to do some of those other tours they offer (which are not free) the next time we are back in town.

We did this free walking tour our first day in Reykjavik. The guide was very interesting, humorous, and knowledgeable. The tour helped orient us to the city and gave us some basic information about Iceland’s history and Iceland today. I would definitely recommend this tour.

This tour was the first thing we did. Eyvindur was our guide. The weather did everything including hailstones but it didn’t matter- his blend of history, politics, architecture, survival tips and jokes were so entertaining that we hardly felt the time pass. Thoroughly recommended
