Ms Denise A Wilson

You just have to go there its brilliant

Mrs M Harvey

So glad we decided to choose the Hop-on, Hop-off tour in Reykjavik. It was interesting, particularly good value and, because our time was limited there, a really good way to see the highlights of the city.

Colin Short

We have used this method of sightseeing in many Cities, not as much to see here but still very good method for getting around. On the 15th November we were at the first stop at 10.00 but did not see a bus until 10.45 with no reason for delay, we were very cold by this time and my party of ten people were very unhappy. There were othergroups of people also left stranded I hope they also submit a review

Dr George Hunter

I thought this tour was a bit over priced for the length of the tour. I stayed on the bus for the full trip which takes roughly an hour. I wanted to assess firstly what I would return to visit. The bus is pleasant enough with interesting commentary but for the price it's not good value.

Colin Jenson

We took the Hop on Hop off bus on the first day that we arrived in Reykjavik. I wouldn't say that it was a great tour however it did give us a better idea of the area
