Astor is the best story teller.
Aylmer_G, Mar 2023
Astor was our guide. Very knowledgeable about Iceland's booze, beer and brewery history. The way he tells his stories and experiences is so much fun you can see it on his facial experessions and the way he acts. Tour feels like you are bar hopping with friends in Iceland. Very fun and highly recommended.
Great Host, Great Beer, Great Time
Chris_J, Feb 2023
I'm a big beer drinker and was curious about the beer scene in Iceland. Our host Stefan didn't disappoint, taking us to three different spots to try a wide variety of great beers. He kept us entertained with great stories about Iceland and Icelandic culture. Fascinating and informative and we all had a great conversation. I'm not normally a tour/excursion guy, but based on this experience alone I would be inclined to book more excursions with Viator. A lot of fun.

Ask for Stephen as your guide!
Stephanie_B, Jan 2023
Stephen was a wonderful guide and honestly a great person to just have a beer with. His personality and stories made the experience feel like you were just meeting up with an old friend. His stories made the experience and really gives you an insight to the local life.

Brooke_D, Oct 2022
Great way to kick off our first visit to Iceland! Our guide was fantastic sharing some history, taking us to places we never would’ve found, and making recommendations for the rest of our stay. The group was small (6 people) which also made it great as we got to know each other and really shared in the experience. Would highly recommend!
Great time, great beer
