My partner and I booked the Food Walk for our last night in Iceland and we are so glad we did! Best decision! We met Heidi (our tour guide) at the concert hall, very easy to locate the meeting point. She was wonderful, very chatty, happy to answer any questions we had about Reykjavik and had some brilliant jokes/one-liners.

We were in a group of 12, 6 Brits and 6 American, all very lovely people and it was easy to mingle with everyone.

A table was arranged for all of us at each restaurant, the food at each place came very quickly and the service was great. After about 20-30mins at each place we'd move on to the next. There was no rushing.

All of the food on offer went down a treat, a great variety of foods, portion sizing was decent, by the end as far as I'm aware we were all pretty stuffed! It is certainly worth the price - food generally in Iceland is crazy expensive (beware!)

We will be recommending the Reykjavik Food Walk to any friends and family that are going to Iceland.

Fantastic food tour with Stevie. Great variety of food from savoury to sweet Icelandic dishes. Great value for money, each dish was a good size and spread over a good timeframe so that we walked away feeling very content but not uncomfortable. Stevie was very knowledgeable, engaging and made the tour funny and interesting, stopping to tell anecdotes and bites of history along the way. Good size tour, great introduction to downtown Reykjavik, Icelandic food and culture. Highly recommend!

This was a wonderful, well thought out food/walking tour. Our guide Ben was outstanding and made it quite fun and very educational. I would highly recommend not only booking this tour, but to book it at the beginning of your stay in Iceland. It introduces you to not only the interesting foods unique to Iceland, but our guide offered lots of historic knowledge, fun facts about Iceland culture and people as well as insider tips. Was great to get acquainted with the city this way and make note of the landmarks and their history as well. The food was very good, but make sure you come hungry. There is a lot of food and even if you think you'll only eat a little of each, you'll be tempted to just go ahead and finish each plate. A note - there was water provided at each location other than the hot dog stand and one sample beer was also included at one location. You also had the option of purchasing alcohol to pair with your food at each sit-down location if you desired. I went on this tour by myself since my husband is not a foodie, but it was nice to talk with our small group and compare travel notes. This tour is excellent for most people, although not fully wheelchair/scooter accessible if anyone is wondering. They may be able to make accommodations for a special tour however. Worth checking! As for price, I thought it was incredibly fair considering if I had to research, then visit all of the restaurants on my own for a full meal at each, it would have cost way more and I wouldn't have had the added experience of getting to see other people's experiences and the opportunity to ask questions and get the good insight into the city that Ben provided. It checks a lot of the boxes of "must try foods" while in Iceland as well. The weather in Iceland changes quickly so a few layers including a light rain shell and a small bag would be a good idea along with decent walking shoes, although the walk itself was well paced and not terribly taxing. Save room for dessert! The homemade rye bread ice cream was really something to write home about!

We were on a mission to try all the big Icelandic foods and this tour helped. Tinna was an AMAZING guide - she was fun and bubbly, joking with us from the very beginning, keeping the entire group engaged, sharing knowledge about the food and city whenever she could. We had about 18 people in the group and she did a great job building camaraderie - we all had so much fun together!

We expected that we would try small samplers of food, but we received BIG portions at the 5 restaurants we went to. We were pleasantly surprised!

The fermented shark … what can we say. It was not our thing, but everyone in the group tried it and many chased it down with a shot of Brenevin.

The highlight … rye bread ice cream. Holy moly was that delicious!

Take this tour specifically (I looked at other group itineraries and this one is so much better) and ASK FOR TINNA!

We had a fantastic time on the tour. When you go somewhere new there can always be a bit of hesitation to try the local cuisine, so booked this tour.
Met our guide Oddur (Clutch) and instantly felt in good hands. He's was incredibly welcoming and knowledgeable about the history of the city, the restaurants, the food and some Norse mythology for a little extra.
Tasted some amazing dishes in a variety of Icelandic restaurants. They were so good we even revisited a couple of the restaurants a few days later for a full meal. I definitely recommend doing this at the start of your travels find out what you like

We had an amazing experience and would highly recommend! The meal was great - they offered a wide array of plates, cozy restaurant atmospheres, and overall very well planned out itinerary. While the food was not to be missed, the company was without a doubt the best part. Our guide, Mundi (Minty), took a group of hungry strangers and engaged us all with his stories, humor and charm.This made for one of the most pleasant and interesting meals which we would gladly relive if we could.
Thank you Minty for such a fun evening and for introducing us to Icelandic remolade which we will definitely be purchasing upon our return! :)

Highly recommended

I highly recommend Wake Up Reykjavík for two reasons. First, the food tour itself which was wonderful but more about that later.
The second, and more important reason, is the problems we faced with our flight being cancelled and their response in helping us reschedule the tour. It all looked bad to start with some miscommunication on both sides, going to their office address to find it didn’t exist and writing a disappointed review on Trip Advisor before writing off the tour and our money. However, at that point Wake Up Reykjavík contacted us by phone and e-mail keen to sort out what had happened and offer us a discount and a reschedule. We were thrilled with this outcome and appreciated their efforts. The true heart of a company is known only when things go wrong and Wake Up Reykjavík showed their tenacity to solve the problem and their generosity of spirit in offering a discount when the fault was not completely theirs.

And that food tour I promised to talk about? Wonderful. Our guide was Sindri, a young delightfully engaging and informative young man who ensued everyone was included in conversations and helped the group to relax and enjoy the experience. Our group dynamic was lovely as we got to know where everyone else was travelling and exchanged favourite places to visit as we enjoyed an interesting and varied mix of foods. Personal favorites for me included the lamb and arctic char at the first stop. The arctic char cooked differently at the second stop, the hot dog and rye bread ice cream. The surprise entree at the fourth stop was fun and character building. It was a delightful evening.
We found this tour on YouTube and that shows a true idea of what the tour entails which I’d advise a look at as well even if only to whet your appetite.
Well done Wake Up Reykjavík and thank you. You really epitomise the kindness and generosity of Icelanders that we’ve found throughout our stay.

We had an amazing food tour with Wake Up Reykjavik! The food selected for the visit was top notch and with Ben as our guide, we had an informative, entertaining and simply enjoyable tour of food and the city. I highly recommend the Reykjavik food Walk to get a sample of Icelandic cuisine (lamb, fish, and other treats - my favorite was the dessert at the very last stop) and tour some wonderful sights around the city- an easy way to kill two birds with one stone! If the price of the food tour is at all a deterrent, don’t let it be, you will get enough food to fill you up and I’m sure you would not be able to get this variety at this cost in any other way.
I like doing food tours as a way of getting acquainted with a city, and this is one of my absolute favorites after the many I have been on - we had a great guide and food!

We booked this tour on our first night to give us a real insight into life in Reykjavik- and were not disappointed.
Our guide Stevie met us on time at the Harpa centre, then spent the next 3 hours leading our group of about 16 around the streets of Reykjavik entertaining us with the history of Iceland, and the culture of the people. He had a great sense of humour and made it all very entertaining and friendly.
We visited 5 different places, trying different Icelandic specialities - it gave us a real taste of the local food and drink. It was also a great way to find your way around the city centre which put us in good stead the next day. Chatting to our fellow travellers was also useful, hearing their experiences.
We'd really recommend this food safari - we thought it good value.

My friend and I booked this fun tour at the last minute when our original plan to tour the south coast fell through due to bad weather. I was hesitant to book initially based on the cost, but I’m glad we went for it since the value of the experience was well worth it! Heidi, our guide, made us feel welcome from the start and gave us bits of history and stories along the way to 5 delicious spots. Each of the places had delicious food and the opportunity to try new things, and the quality was beyond what I had expected. The tour was a group of 10, which was a great size to engage with other tourists and also small enough to chat with our guide. What could have been a lost day with the last minute cancellation by the other tour, ended up being a great day in Reykjavik due to Heidi and this walking food tour!
