The knowledgeable guide was there when promised, and escorted the group on a very good walking tour, pointing on the most important buildings and location of things in a short period of time allowed. He was a graduate student, working on his Master's in History. Easy to understand, added some humor to his presentations, and answered any questions intelligently. I highly recommend this walk upon arrival, so you get a good overview of where different places of interest are located, for future in-depth visit.

We enjoyed our 2 hour intro to Reykjavik with Erikur. He was humorous and energetic, and—as we were exhausted after a long flight and waiting to check into our guesthouse—we appreciated his personality. He kept the large group moving, answered questions from finance to history to culture and made an effort to interact with each of us. This was our first experience with CityWalks and our first visit to Iceland; a fine introduction! We loved his follow-up email as well...lots of great info.

My wife and I had the privilege of spending an evening in Reykjavik with Magnus on City Walk's Money Talks tour. Over the course of the evening, we visited three off the beaten path bars in three different Reykjavik neighborhoods and had the chance to talk about a host of issues, including Icelandic history from its initial settlement to the recent tourist boom and a condensed version of the 2008 bank crash (which Magnus offers as a separate walking tour for those looking for a more in-depth look at this issue). Magnus was a fantastic, friendly guide who made sure we got a chance to try a number of uniquely Icelandic drinks, including "Black Death" and "Like Beer" which were popular before Iceland legalized the drinking of beer in the late 80s / early 90s. All in all, a highly recommended way of having a great night out at local bars and also learning about Iceland's unique history and culture!

Our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable, which was not surprising given that he was in graduate school getting his history degree!
