Although cold and a little rainy I give it top ratings. Guide was very excellent.

Reviewed by: Michael B, Australia, June 2014

This was also a rerun of a trip we did 6 years ago. The half day city tour is a good introduction and an easy way in after travelling all the previous day(s). Although we had done this tour before the route this time was quite different and very interesting. It still starts with a visit to Hallgrímskirkja, which is the most amazing place, photo's make it look good but the experience is mind blowing.
It makes for a very good start to any time in Iceland.
