We did the food tour with Bardi and loved it! A brilliant introduction not only to everyday Iceland food - hotdogs, lamb, lobster and fish - but access to the unusual - puffin, shark and whale - that we could not have found on our own. Bardi was a wonderful host and a very nice person and also helped us get the feel for Icelandic culture in a very short time.

This tour was a lot of fun. We tried food that we never would and probably will not try again such as rotten shark , fish jerky whale and lamb hot dogs. We small group of 4 with our guide and a guide to be. Great way to get a sense of Icelandic faves We loved the Skyr desert and have bought Skyr since returning home.

We were a party of three and were joined by one other person. Our guide was Solvang and she was very personable, informative and open to answer our many questions. I really enjoyed our time with her! The food was plentiful! Definitely come hungry! It was a mix of traditional and more modern foods found in Iceland, which was exactly what we were looking for. I highly recommend this tour.

We booked the 11:30 am tour and received written confirmation with time and location of start of tour. We arrived early as we wanted to ensure we did miss the tour. We waited until 12:15 and NO ONE else arrived and no guide. We tried the phone number on the voucher and no answer, no messaging capability. 1/2 hour later my phone rang and the called asked if I had just called his number. It was an Iceland number calling me so I thought Maybe it was the tour operator. After much back and forth he said we were booked on the 5:00 PM tour, there was no 11:30 tour. The 5:00 tour was with 4 other people. We decided to do the 5:00 tour but Viator document definitely had wrong timing, the caller even confirmed that when he checked into the system. A big waste of our morning. We were at the designated spot at 5:00 pm and the tour guide showed at exactly that time. Solvay was her name, a lovely Icelandic gal, there were no others on the tour and so we had an exclusive private tour. Tasted a variety of Icelandic foods in 6 different restaurants. Lots of food, arrive with an appetite. Learned lots about the Island and the people, food and customs. Great tour but a very rocky, disorganized waste of a day start. We could have been on another tour earlier in the day but the mixup wasted hours of precious time in a beautiful once in a lifetime visit to Iceland. Our time was limited to three days here so we were trying to do as much as possible.
