Once again a trip advisor triumph, not in a million years would I think on a three day break in Reykjavik in the middle of march I would be taking a bike tour , as really not my scene or so I thought, any way clicked on trip advisor then on to activities and these guys came up , so read the reviews and thought we will give it a punt , and so glad I went against my initial instincts as everything about this tour was first class. As we only decided when we woke up to book we got our hotel to phone for us , I spoke to who I later found out was stefan, who explained how to find them on the old harbour and he looked forward to meeting us. We walk down and arrived at 9,55 stefan was already there , what a friendly guy which put my girlfriend at ease as was a bit worried about cycling around a strange city with all the traffic , but it seems the drivers of Reykjavik are very courteous to bike riders plus the tour doesn't take you down any busy roads. Before the tour started of which there were seven of us , we were given our bikes really well maintained inner city bikes comfy and easy to ride we were give cycle helmets and offered extra warm clothing eg hats gloves ect which I thought was a nice touch , stefan explained he wanted everyone to be comfortable and warm so they could enjoy the tour, after a little practice on the bikes to get use to the gears and brakes which I must warn you are opposite to home .
The tour it's self was about two and a half hours long which seemed no time at all and in the end I wished was longer which is always a good sign , I won't spoil the tour by telling what we saw and did but what I will say is a bike is the perfect way to do it, as it would be impossible by coach and to far to walk . Stefans knowledge of his home city is massive and he delivers it with humour and passion that makes the time fly and the information stick, you can tell this guy has 25 years experience but even after 25 years he still is so enthusiastic about what he showed us and such an eclectic mix and at no stage was I a little bit bored .
Once again this is another triumph of small company over large . If we ever return I deffinately would book another tour with these guys oh one last thing on my return to my hotel I received an email from stefan with an attachment which was a group photo from the tour , what a great touch . So if you are young or old and want to see a proper snap shot of a city you have travelled so far to get to book now you will not be disappointed
