A great thing! Went to the nearest museum with the voucher on our cell phone and that's where we got our tickets. Very simple and uncomplicated. If you take full advantage of the card, you saved a lot of money in Reykjavik. A must for anyone who wants to enjoy the city to the fullest!

Love the usage of the citycard. It was relatively easy to get it from a pickup point. Didn’t know at first that was necessary so the bus drivers were quite confused. Everyone was nice about it though. Wish I could’ve seen more around the time I went. Would definitely use it again if I decide to travel by bus.

Worth it to take in the city

Used this card to access the buses, the swimming baths and the zoo. It was definitely good value for money but each time we used it we were challenged. However, even though some bus drivers didn't know what the card was, they did let us on! I would recommend getting the printed ticket if you don't fancy debating what it is you are trying to pay with every time you go somewhere though!
