I marked this excellent because of the guide we had who was very helpful in letting us know how to deal with the short time we had. However, we lost an hour because the website said 10:30 but the bus was actually scheduled 15 minutes earlier. We arrived early (we thought) so stopped to take a bathroom break since we had 15 minutes to spare. We saw the bus leaving when we were less than a minute away from the bus stop.

The city is small but overall it was great tour. The bus came +/- on time every time and the arrival time is indicated at each bus stop. It was cold but thankfully the bus was covered and warm. Beware that the last bus is quite early so schedule your tours accordingly if you’re visiting an area outside of the city center.

Great tour, really easy to use and covers most of the city. On the bus there is an audio guide so you learn a lot as you drive around. The stops are easy to locate and the driver was very kind and helpful. I would definitely recommend if you want to see Reykjavik.

A great way to orientate yourself around the city. Takes you to all the main spots and provides a commentary with useful information.

Wonderful driver that told memore on my second ride at the end of the day.
