Okay, so I’m a teacher and so is the tour guide and I have to believe he is the funniest teacher ever. He’s gotta be one that his kiddos remember forever because he is so smart and hilarious. Perfectly dry delivery combined with historically accurate...More

We were good with the history and not the scary. Olí our tour guide seemed to have created this tour with a friend. He had done good research and narrowed down the stories to fit into a tour that combined the locations with good stories...More

I'm really glad I took this tour - while not as scary as say, the Jack The Ripper walking tour in London, I learned a lot about folklore and several stories were shared about Reykjavik. The tour guide is a historian and really knows his...More

Considering Iceland’s lack of crime and also its short history relative to the rest of Europe, there wasn’t really much to be discussed. Our guide made the most of it, and gave us some history about the town that included the cemetery. There were a...More

I only had one night in Reykjavik. A friend recommended this and I am SO happy we took his advice -- we could not have spent our time in any better way! This is the best "haunted" tour I've ever been on and a great...More

We went on this trip on our last day in Reykjavik on the 4th of June 2018 - and we were not disappointed. Our guide Oli brought us around town for about 1,5 and told stories with such a great sense of humour and insight...More

Olli is funny and engaging, but this is not a ghost-haunted tour. There were a total of 2 ghost stories during the tour. Mostly it is jokes and information about iceland and reykjavik. The information is very interesting, but the name of the tour is...More

Iceland has a lot to offer, but I think this was the best tour we did on our trip. In fact, I think it was the best ghost tour I've ever done. We learned more about Iceland's culture and folklore from Oli in 2 hours...More

Hi there. I usually do the walk every day, except Friday, to mid-September. When are you planing on coming to Reykjavik?
