“AMAZING! A must when in Reykjavik”My wife and I booked onto the beer tour in order to get a feel for the good bars in and around Reykjavik. April was in touch shortly after we booked to welcome us with a very nice and friendly email filled with lots of useful information. We asked her a few things about Iceland (good places to eat, drink etc) and she replied back instantly with lots of useful information. Our host was Egill. We were only 3 of us on this tour, we didn't feel uncomfortable at all as Egill is very friendly and chatty. He obviously loves his country and this shows with the passion in which he speaks about it. We enjoyed lots of interesting drinks in bars around Reykjavik including a visit to a lovely micro brewery where we benefited from a personal tour! We discovered some amazing places to drink whilst sampling some of Iceland's interesting tipples, including a vodka beer! We had a free day during our stay in Reykjavik and Egill recommended we should hire a car and explore. Not only did he provide useful recommendations of places to visit, that evening we received a full itinerary which included hidden thermal pools, interesting villages to visit, waterfalls, geysers and an amazing hidden ice cream store! We pretty much followed his detailed step by step plan including maps! Thanks!! All in all, amazing! So friendly and welcoming, a must when in Reykjavik in order to get the 'local' view of the best places to eat and drink.
“Reykjavik Beer Tour”The beer tour was amazing. The tour guide, Egill, introduced us to some great beers and places to have a drink. Definitely discovered some great beers and places we wouldn't have on our own. We got an Insider's look at this great city - and learned some fun facts and trivia along the way. We even went back to a couple of the places we visited and had some amazing meals. Definitely worth every penny.
“Beer Tour and Food Tour: a must go”We did bought tours through Wakeup Reykjavik. We did bought in the same day and we have a lot of fun. They allowed us to know the city in a different way, by its food and beers. The Food Tour began at 12:30 and stand about four hours. Our guide, Kjartan, was very nice and fun. We walk by the most diverse places, tasting unique flavors in cheeses and exotic meat and the ice cream made with some rye bread was simply delicious. But I will not tell everything, otherwise the surprise factor is part of the tour. The Beer Tour, started at 17:00h. Our guide, Egill, was an excellent host, showing us the best places to have craft beer in the city, and also telling us the history of beer in Iceland. We had a small group, but well integrated, which let the tour even more pleasant. Those are two must go tours for everyone intending to go to Reykjavik.
