“Great tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

I had a ball, and got to see a lot of Reykjavik that was off the beaten track. I loved the stories and loved the end of the tour- the graveyard! Oli is a funny guy and gave a great tour. This is a great way to spend an evening in Reykjavik. I'd highly recommend it. Don't go if you're expecting something flashy, this is not what the tour is about.

“Check it out....you won't be disappointed.”

An excellent way to experience Reykjavik-through the eyes of a local historian- Oli-who guides you on a two hour walk/talk about the haunted history of his fine city. Funny, offbeat and completely enjoyable!

“Ver entertaining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012 via mobile

On our last evening I Reykjavik we decided to do this to kill a few hours. This was a blast, not at all scary but the guide oli is a blast.

Right from the get-go you know that this is going to be a very informal tour, with oli admitting he has never seen a ghost, but he had a quirky style and sarcastic sense of humour that worked really well.

He also brought us through the lesser travelled areas of the city and showed off the charm of Reykjavik that could easily be missed as you venture to the more enticing climes outside the city.

The stories were slightly hit and miss, but always came with a good delivery and sharp wit.

To prove how informal the tour was, it ended outside the supermarket with oli needing to stock up on cigarettes!!

Overall, we had great fun on this tour and it had us repeating some of the one-liners all the way home on the plane.

“So fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

Oli is a hoot! We spent a good two hours listening to his vast knowledge about his country, its folklore, and the city of Reykjavik - and enjoyed it thoroughly! It's not intended to be spooky, but it is super informative and super fun.

This was a great way to spend a couple of hours and $20, for sure. Highly recommended!

“Fun and a little offbeat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

A fun tour that takes you to a few places you might not otherwise see. Interesting as much for the historical and cultural tidbits as for the ghost stories.
