The tour was wonderful. Karen was a great tour guide and very knowledgeable about the city. It was nice to walk about the city to hear her stories before we Had our tastings. The food was delicious and a very nice variety of icelandic favorites. We highly recommend rhis tour.

Tour was really nice and informative. We had an excellent guide, unfortunately I don’t know how to write her name correctly but remember she told us it sounds like “Good knee”. I was bit disappointed fermented shark wasn’t part of this tour as I was looking forward tasting it. All the food we did taste was excellent. Do take this tour in the beginning of your stay in Reykjavík to get top tips where to eat during your stay.
