Established in the summer of 2014, The City Walk Agency swiftly grew into a very busy tour operator that had more guests participating every month along with a growing staff of wise and witty Icelanders. Our primary focus today is still the “Free” classic tour, a free walking tour in Reykjavík which is so characteristic that is has been featured frequently in blogs, on TV, in newspapers and across all types of social media. What’s more is that we have been rated as the best tour in Iceland based not only on quality but also on price. In addition, we run a pub crawl, a tour that explores the financial topics that made Iceland famous, and we also receive many private inquiries for custom tours. Our team of welcoming local guides, have been highly evaluated and recommended by other travelers on TripAdvisor because of their professionalism and attention to detail. Each one of us knows quite well that we are representing our country, and we always make sure to choose our words with care and to show all tourists the utmost respect and admiration while still being able to crack a joke and use humor to bridge our cultures together. We are all looking forward to seeing you in Iceland soon!

Sara was very enthusiastic and has opinions of her own to share with the group including good place to dine, or shop local establishments that aren’t tourist,trap, and ways to save money as tourists . She is a resourceful person being long time local resident in Reykjavik I enjoy her presentation and the walking routes.. I can’t think of any suggestions of topic to be discussed more than what she did

The tour was very interesting and informative. Thomas managed to tell us so much about history, culture and local customs. It took about 1 hour and 45 minutes and after that Tomas also answered many questions and provided recommendations for further exploration.

Today I did the citywalk tour of Reykjavik. Our guide was Asi. The tour lasted 2 hours from 10:30am to 12:30pm. During the tour we visited the Parliament, Laugavegur, City Hall and alot of Statues of prominent Icelandic people. Asi was engaging, informative and funny. The only minus was the Rain. I would recommend this walking tour to everyone.🙂
