“Useful info and helpful staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

We went shopping on our last couple of days and wanted to find out a bit more about the local culture so among others we looked at around Iceland. The staff advised us on products from Iceland and were very helpful... Not your typical tacky tourist shop

“Expensive!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

Like all good native products, those sold here are excellent quality but extremely expensive- maybe only for Americans and Russians wallets!

“Excellent services and unforgettable attitude”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

We booked a third-party tour to the South Coast and Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon at Around Iceland office but something went wrong and on the day of the tour nobody came to pick us up. We were very upset because it was our last day in Iceland and we wanted to see glacier and icebergs very badly! We called to Around Iceland and then something unbelievable happened! Helga Ólafsdóttir, director of Around Iceland and, jumped out of her bed and came to pick us up as soon as she could! She drove us approximately 1.5 hours to the next stop of the excursion bus, so we didn't miss anything! We are still very amazed!
The tour was wonderful but an incredible help of Around Iceland was no less impressive!
I strongly recommend this travel agency to everyone!

“LOVELY SPOT that has-it-all!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

Some friends that we met introduced us to this place. It is super clean, has Icelandic products, features different parts of the country in a mini-retrospective, and there is a lovely cafe in the back.

In fact, if you are daunted by the cost of simple items within the city, your BEST brekkie will be in the cafe. I think the price for an ample breakfast (there are two choices) is around $12. This may sound steep, but it is the deal-of-the-century in Reykjavik!

Although, I would've dove into that special, I already had breakfast by then. [Our male friends devoured the breakfast specials!]

There are many places to pop-into in Reykjavik and this should be one of the first that you go to!

“Neil was a very helpful fella”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

Popped in to find out info and book our excursions. Neil a very helpful fella. Then ended up eating there as we were all shattered. The soup was delicious. An Icelandic soup, with plenty of ginger in. Really warmed us up. Fantastic service
