The guide, Lalli, is a local and he had lots of funny stories to tell. You get to see places you probably would have missed because they don't look like it from the outside. I also recommend taking this tour at the absolute beginning of your stay in Reykjavik, because you get a lot of practical tipps and have way better orientation afterwards.
