Review by

Useful tourist guide - covers the basics, the main attractions and a few other things along the way. No great depth of detail (which can make some of the sights it suggests tricky to find - Iceland isn't awash in sign posts), but more than enough to get by and worth supplementing the good free guides available in hotels and cafes (which are equivalent to What's On in Reykjavik, and mini regional guide books covering sights, activities, accommodation and food - although these are equally poor for wayfinding). Take a good map.
