Tasting it is. Dont expect a meal .6 different dishes a spoonful of each. Plenty of beer to get you drunk .I would do it again, but dont come too hungry .
This is a great way to get to know other people who have traveled to this country. The beer and the food were good and our host Candy was nice. We were expecting more information regarding your country so that was the only thing missing from the evening.
We had an amazing time on the beer and food tasting tour. The amount of beer you get is well worth the price you pay. The information you get from the host and just by conversing with her is also unmatched. This was one of the highlights of our trip.
We had a wonderful experience on this trip. Candy, our guide, was knowledgeable and exuberant as she helped us all become acquainted both the beer and our fellow tasters. Thoroughly enjoyed this tasting tour!
the best part about this tour was that i met some amazing people!! the food and beer were great but the woman running the event was i believe filling in for someone else and didn't really have time to explain the beers and pairings to us. all in all, great time however she did not check out vouchers so we kept joking we would come back another time! -
This was great! We had quite a lot of beer and the sizes of the glasses surprised me.
The lady who lead it made everyone socialise with each other and me as my partner actually ended up going out with another couple the night after.
We arrived at meeting place Mar Bar to be told that we had to go to the Bryggian Brewery which was about a 10 minute walk. This tour takes place in the Brewery so it is rather misleading. However we had a good time along with about 14 others and our hostess was very good. Overall we had a fun couple of hours but the meeting place instructions need to be amended and Tour removed from description.
Not a brilliant start - the address for the venue wasn't clear on the booking. We ended up quite lost and arrived late.
The bar / brewery weren't expecting us, as they hadn't been informed of the booking - slightly awkward.
We were sat in the restaurant area, which was a bit odd, but the atmosphere of the restaurant is lovely. There were only two of us on the 'tour' but the guide was friendly and informative. Generous samples of beer, and really nice tapas-style food.
We stayed afterwards for dinner because we loved the atmosphere of the restaurant.
Good value considering the cost of alcohol / food in Iceland, but the organisation / communication let it down somewhat.
