Finding a reliable tour guide in Reykjavik
April 6, 2007 1:12 PM   Subscribe

I've looked at most of the ask mefi questions on Iceland, but would anyone have good suggestions for reliable tour guides in Reykjavik? My family and I are going for four days, and we want to make the most of our trip without worrying about getting place to place. I'm not a big fan of tour groups, but I also don't want to do the legwork for finding out where everything is and how to get there.

What kinds of tours are you looking to do?

I can't remember the names of the tour companies, but when I visited, I arranged tours through the front desk at the Reykjavik City Hostel. A couple were with tour buses full of people (but to places I wouldn't have been able to visit otherwise). One fantastic tour was in an all-terrain vehicle with just one other guy and a driver who took us up and down volcanic hills.

It looks like Hosteling International Iceland has a Tours webpage, but I think it's geared towards booking through the hostel itself.

I found Reykjavik Excursions to be reliable; they run tours to the main tourist destinations around Reykjavik. They can be booked from the main bus station and lots of the hotels/hostels and pick up from a number of points around the city.
