Customer reviews
Miss Pamela J Blake

Been on Hop-on, Hop-Off Tours in many major cities and was disappointed with this one. Reykjavik is a small place and lots of the sights were within walking distance. The city bus day ticket is better value and includes discounts/entry into museums/galleries etc. Very little interaction with the drivers and no clear indication of which stop you were at unless you were listening to the commentary. Vehicles were clean and smart and staff polite.
