Wake Up Reykjavik Tour Review by Cindy C

Loved it! Loved it! Loved it!

Wow - there’s no better way to dine like a local but to be with a local! Our guide, Ben, was that perfect local who gave my family and I a taste of Iceland that was packed with fun, laughter, and of course, food! We had such a wonderful time spending the evening meeting and dining with 8 other strangers who became more like old friends as we “restaurant-hopped” our way around town. Ben is equally personable as he is knowledgeable, and his humor kept us laughing throughout the entire evening! The food selection was authentic and delicious. While the Arctic char was my personal favorite, tasting fermented shark alongside my fellow adventurous foodies was the most fun for sure. Thank you, Ben, for making this a highlight of our first visit to Iceland! Can’t speak enough about this tour. Sign up for it if you’re in town and you’ll see for yourselves!!

Finally got my dad to enjoy a food tour

I am someone who generally loves food tours and this one did not disappoint! Our guide Thor was absolutely amazing and made us feel very comfortable and relaxed. Fantastic food, you will be full for the rest of the day after the tour. My dad who hates the idea of food tours begrudgingly came with us on this tour. Afterwards he raved about it and said it was amazing! I have two kids approximately 10 years old, they both loved the tour!

Fun and YUM!

Dagurlar was a wonderful guide! He was both funny and informative. We enjoyed both the food and the information he provided. The food was so good we actually went back to two of the restaurants we visited. We take food tours quite often and we have NEVER gone back to two restaurants before! We highly recommend this tour and especially our charming guide!

What can I say / this food tour is honestly one of the best I have ever been on! Our fabulous tour guide Dagur made the whole experience a strong 12/10. The restaurants that we went to was a perfect way to have a taste of all of the fabulous local cuisine Iceland has to offer (including fermented shark haha). Would definitely recommend booking in for this food tour / it is a lovely way to start or end your time in Reykjavik!

Wake Up Reykjavik Tour Review by Helen_B
Fantastic food, great guide and value for money

What a great tour with an amazing guide, Ben. There is quite a bit of walking but we got a breather at each stop to taste some amazing food and drink. Ben was just great from start to finish, we were part of a small group, just the 4 of us and Ben but this made it even more enjoyable getting to know each other and share this amazing experience. All the food was lovely, we even did the fermented shark which was not as bad as expected so give it a go if you can. The tour lasted approx 3 hrs and was definitely worth the money due to the amount of food and some drink included, the rest we brought ourselves. A great tour with a great guide, well worth the money and definitely recommend.
