You haven't done Iceland until you do the Reykjavik Food Walk! Great guide, great food, great company. You probably will go back to at least one of the establishments after you have done the tour.

We had a fantastic time on this tour! Our guide, Guðný, was wonderful and we tasted things we would never have ordered off a menu. All were delicious! It was an easy and fun way to get acclimated to Reykjavik and well worth the cost.

About the cancellation policies, I did book a beer tour through them that was cancelled and I received a full refund. As for the maximum number of people... I can't say, there were 6 in our group with room for maybe 2 more?
