It was okay
, Nov 2021
We did this on our last day in iceland to explore the city and we did see the city and found spots we would like to get off at and explore. Only thing is we didn't realise that the buses did not run for 24hrs as the ticket said for 24hrs so we started around 2 and last bus was 5:30 so had to walk alot afterwards and use public transport at additional cost too to go to the hotel. So start early and you'll be able to see Reykjavik city properly as it is very beautiful and worth exploring.

This hop on hop off bus was very easy to use. It was easy to find the stops. The language of the narrator was quite good. The drivers were helpful. I think the text about the logistics should be updated by removing the reference to tickets at HARPA. They knew nothing about it and sent us outside to the bus stop. Bottom line: you don’t need to start at HARPA. You can start anywhere. Mt suggested second update: If you choose to print the voucher , the driver will give you a ticket which you need to keep track of for your 24-48 hours. If you just show your voucher on your phone, you don’t get a ticket and don’t have to remember where it is.

Nice route, but they need to add another bus as spacing was poor
, Jul 2021
Waiting way too long before the next bus. Buses should run about 30 minutes between. The spacing between these buses seemed quite a bit longer. The automatic narration was good, but additional details could have been provided. There was a lot of dead time.

its very good for seeing the local locations you get headphones and can change to a language you speak that tells you a detailed account of the places you visit

Pick up locations are just not in the right spots. I stayed in the city center at the Camopy Hilton which should have had a stop close by , but the only stop was many blocks away, yet you stop right in front of the other Hilton which is not in the city center!! Not really enough to see from this tour. The driver was very nice.

We have learned to take the hop-on, hop-off bus tours whenever going to a new city. This trip was no different. We got a great overview of Rvk and allowed us to get off after one trip around at the stope we were interested in.

, Jun 2018
The Hop On Hop Off tour bus stops at many convenient locations. However, the hours are limited. Unlike other Hop-On Hop-Off tours I have done in the past, the ticket was not stamped with a time. Therefore, I recommend buying your ticket as early in the day as possible so that you have the entire day to enjoy the use of the buses.

Terrible - do not waste your money. I do the hop on hop off in cities all over the world as I think that it is a good way to get a sense of the city and then decide what to do. This was by far the most boring one I have ever been on - waste of money

Not the best. Only 1 bus running which left 1 hour between busses which is impractical. It was a cold day and you didn't know if the bus was going to come in 55 min or 5 min. Not practice on a cold day. I wouldn't recommend.

, Apr 2018
Caught the bus from Stop 1 with no issues - hopped off at stop 6 whale museum and after completing that I waited outside in the snow for the bus to turn up. Was told they were running every half an hour but after waiting 20 minutes after the designated pickup time I was on a strict timeline as I was flying out later I had to walk to the next place of interest - stop 8, which took about half an hour. I realise I could have waited for the next bus but at that stage I had no idea whether one had broken down, or would even turn up so I walked out my frustrations. The audio segment of the tour didn't work either so it was a very quiet bus ride.
