Fantastic tour of Reykjavik

We really enjoyed this tour. Lalli, our guide, was very friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The history was very interesting and the route included some places tourists might not usually go. Brilliant- thank you!

One of the highlights of our trip

We went on the history tour with Lella and enjoyed every minute of it. I am usually not a "history buff" but we decided to book the tour as my husband is. In the end, we both could have spent an entire day with Lella....More

Tour guide Lolli was excellent

Appreciated the knowledge and humor our tour guide Lolli had. He made the dark history not as depressing and was really engaging. He was also patient in answering everybody's questions. Like the small and interactive format. Definitely recommend this!
