What if I have dietary restrictions or allergies?
We do everything we can to accommodate all dietary restrictions and/or allergies 🙂
We can easily arrange alternative options for our vegetarian and pescatarian guests and for gluten & lactose intolerants. Nuts, seeds, fruits & shellfish are also easy to avoid.
If you have any dietary restrictions or allergies, please let us know in the comment section when you book and we will accommodate you the best we can!
Vegans are more than welcome in our tour but unfortunately, the traditional Icelandic cuisine is not very welcoming for a vegan diet. Vegans can unfortunately not enjoy 90% of the cuisines in this tour.
Is everything included in the tour or is the food cost separate?
Of course! Everything is included in our fun local foodie tour. All you have to do is to show up hungry like a wolf and we will take care of the rest!
Included is the guided food, history & city tour, visit to 5-6 of our favourite restaurants and tasting of over 10 amazing local cuisines 🙂
How much walking is involved in the tour?
The walking distance in our Reykjavik Food tour is approx. 2 km or 1,2 miles but it can vary between tours 🙂
The tour is really easy as we are always just walking to our next restaurant where we will sit down and enjoy a delicious local cuisine. Furthermore, the walking is usually slow paced as we are exploring the city as we go!
Does this tour include sight seeing as a city tour? or is it just food?
Absolutely! In our Reykjavik Food walk we visit our favourite restaurants, try all our must try local cuisines and we also walk around all of down town Reykjavik to explore the highlights of and the hidden gems of the city.
We explore the main landmarks, beautiful streets and see great street art. We also learn about our Iceland history. This is the perfect way to make the most of your Reykjavik experience in one day. You will hear fun stories and have your local guide show you the best of our hometown – we are also happy to give you any local tips or recommendations you might need.
You can book your foodie experience here.
How far in advance should I book?
We are thrilled of how popular our Reykjavik Food Walk is – but for that same reason, we very often get fully booked far in advance.
Therefore we encourage our guests to book in advance when possible, to ensure that you get your perfect date and time. We accept bookings 1 year in advance 🙂
Can we do a private Food Walk?
Yes, it is of course possible to arrange private foodie tours!
For groups of 8+ there is no added fee for a private tour. For private groups smaller than 8 persons, we charge the minimum off 97.300 ISK (or for 7 guests).
Contact us to get more info or to book your tour 🙂
What is the tour duration?
Our day-time Reykjavik Food Walk tours are approx. 3,5 hrs - but it all depends on how fast you walk & eat! 🙂
For our 5pm evening departures there is slightly less history and sight seeing and we focus more on creating a fun local dinner experience. The 5pm tour is closer to 2,5hrs.
Where does the tour begin?
Our delicious Reykjavik Food walk begins right in the heart of Reykjavik and the exact meeting location is sent in a super secret email after booking 🙂
The location is easy to find and very central. It is in walking distance from most hotels, hostels and apartments in Reykjavik.
Is parking available nearby?
For guests driving their own car, there are multiple paid parking spots nearby – and in a parking garage underneath the building.
Is the tour suitable for children?
Absolutely! Our Reykjavik Food Tour is specially created to accommodate everyone!
Foodies of all ages are welcome. Children under 12 years old get a brilliant 50% discount but still get all of the same cuisines.
In regards of infants, if you as a parent are comfortable with bringing your child, then we will welcome you with a smile 🙂
