I recently took a walking tour of Reykjavik with Luca, and it was fantastic. Luca’s deep knowledge of the city’s history and culture, along with his engaging storytelling, made the tour truly enjoyable. We visited major landmarks, as well as hidden gems like local cafes and street art. Luca’s passion for Reykjavik was evident and made the tour special. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to explore the city!

It was nice and relaxed. We were a small group of 7 people and I learned a lot about the different sights in the city. It was more like a getting to know the neighborhood type of tour. I was hoping to learn more about Reykjavik's history through the sites and I learned a bit about it. The food tasting at the end of the tour was particularly fun for me.

Fantastic! Our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining throughout the walk. It was the perfect way to get a feel for the city and we capped it off by taking our guide’s suggestion for lunch. Excellent sushi 🍣!

Excellent information on Reykjavik. Tomas was friendly and extremely knowledgeable and gave great insight on so much about the history of the city and answered all questions. Highly recommend!

Very informative. The guide whose name I can't remember was very engaging and explained things very well and answered questions and overall was a fun time.
