TripAdvisor comments

  • Amazing Experience! Premium whale watching tour from Reykjavik

    So happy we booked the Premium whale watching tour from Reykjavik. So worth the extra cost! Even just riding the fast boat was worth the cost, we were able to get so close to the whales. We got lucky and saw different kinds of whales and a baby porpoise. The Tour Guide was so informative and fun to listen to. I really recommend this company, they were professional and we felt safe.
