I loved the two tours I booked specially the second one to schnaffels peninsula. The cook of the restaurant was wonderful as well as the food...so delicious!!!The landscapes are amazing. I don't mind about the weather. The worst for me are the high prices of your country.

I ended up not having a chance to use the card but I would absolutely buy it again. Free admission to museums, free bus fare, discounts on restaurants, it’s an amazing deal. My only complaint is that I was never able to find a list of the restaurants.

The city card is the best option to explore Reykjavík, you have free access to some museums and discount in others. Also you can use some buses for free. A great experience buying this card!

The city card is the best deal in Reykjavík! We went to six museums, got discounts on food, and explored Viðey Island.

I had an amazing time solo traveling in Iceland! I did a few tours, which all exceeded my expectations. I used the city card two days. It is good value for the money. I wish they would make the restaurant discounts more clear and which restaurants you need to make a booking for. The only problem I had was the bus system was quite confusing. I was able to make it out to videy island with the ferry. But I took a long walk back into the city center bc the buses were not clear or convenient for that location. Other than that, I had a marvelous time and everyone I met was quite friendly. Also, highly recommend the thermal pools with or without the city card! I went to the Reykjavik “indoor” pool and it was so relaxing after walking all day
Edit review
Hotel was great (Semari), very cosy and clean. the 3 day bus/attraction pass was great value for money. the maritime museum is very interesting so is the restaurant in there which serves traditional food which was very tasty. Was very disappointed with our tour operator GrayLine. no e mail off them to inform us that they had changed the pick up point for the norther lights tour, went to original pick up point, spotted notice and phoned Grayline only to be told the tour was cancelled after spending time to get there, never even got a cutesy e mail or phone call off them, called the next day to re book for that evening and was told that was cancelled too. spent 3 days and nights in Iceland which was a very interesting place but did not get to see the main thing I went there for and that was to see the northern lights. well worth visiting The Harpa, the museums, the Old Harbour, the Recycled House, City Hall. the Gullfoss waterfall, and a visit to the Blue Lagoon
Edit review
Amazing, only 5 days but Reykjavik and Iceland offer so much variety it was too short. The Northern Lights was the main reason I decided to go to Iceland, they duly showed up with an amazing display watched on a Northern Lights tour. There is so much to see in Reykjavik, especially walking. The Harpa, the weekend Flea market, the museums, the Old Harbour, The John Lennon Peace tower, the Recycled House, City Hall and the buzz of the shops and restaurants. A full day tour took us to the North Atlantic Rift, Game of Thrones location, the Gullfoss waterfall, an Icelandic horse farm, the Geysir, an extinct volcanic crater, and an unforgettable visit to the Blue Lagoon, driving back along the South coast through lava fields and a line of volcanoes. An amazing few days , I can only say I will have to return

I'm so glad I got the City Card. It was a great value, especially since I used the bus system a lot during my stay. The museums were great, and I learned a lot about Iceland.
Edit review
The City Card is an excellent purchase! It allows access to a multitude of museums, exhibitions, shops and more for free or for a discounted price, and was definitely worth the money that we paid for it. If you are looking to cram as many things into your stay in Reykjavik as you possibly can, it's a must-have!
Edit review
The city card is a fantastic opportunity to explore Iceland's capital - it is value for money and there is quite a bit of flexibility (the 24, 48 or 72 hours start on the moment you use it for the first time). The card offers free entry to all the main museums plus the geothermal pools and a ferry trip to Videy island, which is worth a visit.
