We spent our first day in Reykjavik on this excursion. Definately worth the money. We tried delicious dishes, AND got a nice walk in the city. Make sure you show up hungry. I learned that Islandic cuisine and Norwegian cuisine is quite similar. Anyway it was a great introduction to Islandic food, and i felt we got many "inside"-tips from our local Islandic guide. I cant remember her name, but it was a proud, blonde, intelligent islandic girl!

This tour was so well worth it! Not only did we get to try 13 different kinds of food, we got to walk some of it off with the walking! Nothing too strenuous though... Anna was so fun and kept us entertained with her history and traditions of Iceland.

Spent a few hours on the food walk with Anna and had a great time. There was plenty of food (we made six stops, as well as some takeaway skyr), good variety, and all of it delicious. I couldn't help but share Anna's enthusiasm for Iceland and it's food despite the terrible weather. Would definitely recommend!!

We enjoyed the tour with Alexandra. We were able to try quite a few dishes, and as the tour guide mentioned at the beginning of the tour they focused on food that most people like and we avoided pickled fish. The tour had six stops and gave you an authentic look at the modern cuisine of Iceland; lamb soup, cheese, meat, rye bread ice cream, fish filet and fish mash, and finished with desert. I do wish we were able to try lobster soup that was mentioned in other reviews. The walk was not strenuous by any means, but be mindful of ice. I'm gad we did this tour and wish we were able to do it on our first day as you learn some locations you may want to go back to.

We are a family of four. This tour was perfect and frankly largely due to Anna. Her story telling, her funny demeanor, her pride in Iceland, her friendly behavior. The walk was great, the restaurant choices were great and surprising like the rye bread ice cream and best hot dog you will ever have will be in Iceland. We highly recommend visitors take this tour and ask for Anna.
