City Tour of Reykjavik
Jerry_S, Aug 2022
The guide DeeDee was humorous and informative. The sites visited were relevant and gave us a good understanding of the Reykjavik scene.

I have used this company many times during this 26 day vacation in June 2022. On time and very good tour guides.
A quick look at Reykjavik

Excellent tour. It covers the highlights of Reykjavik if you have limited time although this tour covered a lot more than what I expected to see which was a bonus. The driver / guide was extremely informative and very friendly and made the tour very enjoyable

The tour was excellent and the driver/tour guide were great. It met all of our expectations. The length of time was just right and he got us back to the ship in plenty of time.

In winter time the day light is shorter, so moving around in the dark if you book the morning tour is
not recommended. Overall we had a glimpse of the beautiful city.

The tour itself was excellent. The guide was very informative. We got a good feel for the city, and made several stops along the way. However, the trip almost did not happen. On our confirmation we were told who the local contact was. When we got off the ship, there were many tour operators with signs waiting for passengers, but nobody from the local tour company. I finally asked the driver of another local tour company van for help, and he called his central office. He brought us to his terminal in town and they issued us a voucher for a Peninsula Tour ending at the airport. Finally, the manager arranged for us to get a city sightseeing tour which ended at the cruiseship pier.

A good walk around this city can get you the same information. It was short and I wish it had included more. I also thought the pool was part of the tour but we simply drove by. It was a nice way to spend the morning though!
