Luca was very knowledgeable in sharing Icelandic history with our group. He answered all our questions and brought Icelandic treats for our group to try (dried fish, a drink, and chocolate). He even shared restaurant recommendations, including vegetarian options, with us.

Roy_B

Reykjavik is a wonderful city for a walking tour. Luca was a great guide. Very personable and knowledgeable. We had children with us and he made the tour enjoyable for all of us. We felt like the tour gave us a great view of Icelandic history, culture, economy, and politics. Could not have been better. We now have a great understanding of Iceland. Luca also gave us recommendations for restaurants and places in Reykjavik and rest of Iceland to visit.

Walking tour worth the time & money

Our tour guide Luca was fabulous. Knowledgeable, professional & kind. Went above and beyond texting tips for restaurants and activities after the tour. Also gave us a little taste of Icelandic alcohol and chocolate. Had we wanted some fish he offered a taste of that as well. Pointed out the sites and explained the history. A real gem. Tour was 2 hours although it said 1.5 when booked, which was fine for us.

Thanks a lot for your great review, Denise!! It's very much appreciated! I'm very happy to hear you enjoyed the tour and the local little "delicacies":):) It was great to meeting you and to have you on tour!! ohh...so strange that you got only 1.5 hours as tour duration when you booked it on Viator. I've set the tour duration to 2-3 hours long in the tour details on Viator/Tripadvisor
