Rebecca C Washburn

We had a short stop-over in Reyjavik, Iceland so we booked the Hop-On, Hop-Off Tour. This was worth the money if you have a short time or a longer time to see the highlights of the City. The bus driver was very nice and the bus cozy (it was very cold and windy on the day we toured). One advice is to check the output on the bus tour description which is accessed by ear phones which are free on the bus. Some of the plug ins are worn out. The City is beautiful and the Icelanders very nice and friendly. They also speak English and are very helpful in providing directions and information. Thank you.


Very convienance to get around the city for a reasonable price

Mrs Christina A Spence

The Hop on hop off bus in Reykjavik was very useful, not only for allowing us to visit all the sites we wanted to see, but also for the audio of the history of the areas. We are already planning a return visit and will definitely do this again

Mrs C Ballantyne Roberts

We took this tour on our first day in Reykjavik. It was an excellent way to see the city and get our bearings. We hopped on and off that day, and also walked to places that we ran out of time for the next day. Recommended.
