City Walk

History and Culture Walk

The famous two hour walking tour focuses on the history of Iceland, the evolution of Reykjavík as a town and Icelandic culture in general, laid out in an informative and comic way by either Marteinn (Martin), Eiríkur (Eric), Sara (Sarah), Jóhannes (Joe), Tómas (Tom) or Þórdís (Disa) english speaking Icelanders and history majors. This tour has no fixed price, instead it runs on the great Free Walking Tour model found allover the world where each participant sets the price of the tour afterwards instead of in advance. As a result, the guide relies solely on your contribution and works hard for his share in the donations. The „Free“ classic tour departs multiple times a day all year around. Occasionally on holidays we take a day off.
