Nanna was a really friendly, knowledgeable guide. We spent about two hours or so covering the city and she did a great job of keeping everyone interested. It was a nice experience and I'd definitely recommend it.

This walking tour was conducted by Na-anna...she was very friendly, knowledgeable and funny. She even gave us a funny introduction to Icelandic language, tips for dating in Iceland and how important football is becoming.

When we did the tour at 12:00 it had about 20 people on it plus the guide Not sure what maximum would be but guess if you tried to book a place on line it would tell you the tour was full if they have a maximum number
