We had booked the tour with two adults and a 12 year old. We all love food and thought this tour would be a good first day on vacation in Iceland.
With the energetic and fun Bara as our guide and some other fun people from other countries around the global be it proofed to be just that: fun, entertaining and yummy.

If you are into food in general and want a walking tour of Reykjavik, you should take this tour. Our favorite was Apotek with its incredible desserts.

Thank you very much for a fun tour....

If you are going to spend any amount of time in Reykjavik, this tour is a must. Pur guide, Bara, was amazing. She is knowledgeable, personable, and has a ton of great energy.

We were able to go to a few places we would not have ventured into on our own. We were able to experience Icelandic food in a relaxed and fun atmosphere.

This is one not to miss.

This was a great tour! We had so much fun walking around, eating and talking with the other guests on the tour. Bàra, our guide, was so friendly and very accommodating of any food allergies or if there were certain things you don't eat, she would order something else for you to try instead. Our group had 10 people including our guide, which was a good number! Everything went very smoothly and we had time at a few of the places to buy things if we wanted. Never rushed! I highly recommend this tour if you're in Reykjavik as she also gives you some great history during the walk and you get to see a lot of areas and other places you might want to see during your stay. Two thumbs way up!!! Thank you for such a fun and delicious tour!

The food tour was absolutely amazing, definitely one of the highlights of our trip! Our tour guide and also founder of the company Egill was very charismatic and passionate about sharing his love and knowledge of food with us. The tour was a nice balance of walking and eating around the city center and also learning fun facts about the history and culture of Reykjavik. We went to 6 places ranging from small local gems to fine dining and also got Icelandic Skyr and chocolate to take home! Quantities were generous and Egill was very accommodating to any dietary restrictions within the group. Overall it was a lovely tour and highly recommended!
