Great Guide

Luca was a great guide. Prior to us arriving, he provided us with his cell phone number in case we had any problems. When our flight was hours late, he let us reschedule the tour to the following morning. During our 2.5 hour tour we saw all the sights of Reykjavik and learned a ton about the history. He also brought some local delicacies that we were able to sample. Following the tour, Luca sent us a bunch of recommended restaurants as well as recommended sights outside of Reykjavik for us to try on our own. Overall, we were very happy.

We loved our Reykjavik city tour with Luca. He is very knowledgeable and plans sites based on the small groups that he usually arranges. Both my husband and I learnt a lot, enjoyed the history of Iceland. He took us to some secret locations that we wouldn't have explored on our own. I can highly recommend this tour, if you wish to see the best, take recommendations for Iceland, restaurants and what best to do with your time during your visit.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Luca and were very lucky that it was only our family so we were able to ask lots of questions. Luca was very knowledgeable and we could see his love for Reykjavík and giving tours. He also gave us a suggestion for a fish and chips restaurant in Kevalik which was perfect en route to the airport. We had perfect weather and had a nice laugh when Luca mentioned he wasn’t sure how to dress for such a perfect weather day.
