    This was a really nice way to get a sense of Reykjavik and the surrounding area. Although it rained for much of the trip, the sights were amazing, and, most importantly, authentic. Seeing the harbor as the sun came up, the glass dome atop the water towers in a driving rainstorm, the magnificent church, and the home of the prime minister were highlights. The guide was very pleasant, very helpful, and accommodated our request to drop us off at a location other than the one that was scheduled with advice on what else to see. Advice: the guides are very prompt in their pickup times - and they are most grateful for people who are where they are supposed to be when they are supposed to be there. Very pleasant, but also very efficient.

    Pick up and drop off on time. Guide very amusing and very knowledgeable, worth doing the tour as you find out loads of useful information about Iceland and a good way to find your way around- would recommend doing tour on first day if possible
