very nice tour. i would suggest stopping for lunch (have a hot dog) near harpa. there are some confusing pathways but i found it easy enough to navigate. otherwise keep adding more in depth information and stops. thanks for the tour!

Great tour. Certainly a good first day "intro" as it hit the major highlights. Spoiler alert....the City Hall does have a public bathroom. Thanks for introducing us to your lovely city.

Great tour around the city that covers every place you need to see! Definitely recommend. You can make it shorter by not walking around the lake but rather just going to city centre and then carrying on to the next point.

Great visit, very informative which unfortunately left me a little hungry. There are so many other buildings, streets, squares that I would have liked to discover in this wonderful way… THANK YOU
