A Must when in Reykjavik!

Luca was Amazing! Our first time in Iceland and our first day and we learned so much. This is a must even if you've been before. He is a wealth of information and makes the tour to your pace. Shows you things you won't find in tour books. Would do it again!

We had a memorable walking tour of Reykjavik with Luca. He met us as scheduled and gave a knowledgeable and detailed account of Reykjavik and Iceland and their history as we toured historic sites of the city. Would highly recommend it to anyone.

Great Guide

Luca was a great guide. Prior to us arriving, he provided us with his cell phone number in case we had any problems. When our flight was hours late, he let us reschedule the tour to the following morning. During our 2.5 hour tour we saw all the sights of Reykjavik and learned a ton about the history. He also brought some local delicacies that we were able to sample. Following the tour, Luca sent us a bunch of recommended restaurants as well as recommended sights outside of Reykjavik for us to try on our own. Overall, we were very happy.

We loved our Reykjavik city tour with Luca. He is very knowledgeable and plans sites based on the small groups that he usually arranges. Both my husband and I learnt a lot, enjoyed the history of Iceland. He took us to some secret locations that we wouldn't have explored on our own. I can highly recommend this tour, if you wish to see the best, take recommendations for Iceland, restaurants and what best to do with your time during your visit.

Absolutely great! Our guide Luca was very knowledgeable, interesting and personable. Walking tour was well planned and gave us a very good idea of the city and its history. My teenage daughter and my senior mother equally enjoyed it. I highly recommend it!
