An excellent experience! An amazingly interesting topic and location. The presentation was engaging and entertaining, like a good novel with multiple story lines being woven together in intriguing ways. Presenter and owner were friendly and fun. Highly recommend, if you like history, James Bond, or spycraft!

Ótrúleg saga Ég vissi ekkert hverju maður átti von á, en eftir sýninguna situr maður dolfallinn yfir ævi þessa manns og skilur ekki hvernig fyrirlesarinn hefur náð í allar upplýsingarnar um hann. Hvergi dauður þráður í fyrirlestrinum. Mæli sannarlega með þessu.

True Spy - frábær og fræðandi sýning. Var James Bond íslenskur? Maður er ekki í nokkrum vafa eftir að hafa hlýtt á frábærlega útfært erindi Huga, annars aðstandenda sýningarinnar segja okkur allt um William Stephenson, spæjara af guðs náð. Við fengum erinfið á íslensku, einnig í boði á ensku.

A highlight of our trip! Loved this! Fascinating account of the life of Sir William Stephenson whose mother was Icelandic. Who knew that James Bond was partially based on fact and not entirely fiction? Highly recommend this to anyone visiting. A definite highlight of our trip. David was a great storyteller. A 65 minute lecture lasted 2 hours. David extended it because we were so interested. ❤️

Amazing discovery of the true James Bond What a great spot for not only informational but interesting way into the world of James Bond. The lecturer was amazing and he was truly passionate about the history. Everything from the beginning to his end really open your eyes to the working in the shadows of WW2 but even some of your favorite movies. I would say more but you'll have to find out. Truly an amazing stop while in Iceland.

Very Interesting Talk I won't give away any 'surprises', but the lecture details the very interesting life of William Stephenson, and possible/probable links to the James Bond stories. The host was very knowledgeable and this is obviously a passion project. I have a keen interest on some subjects which are within one degree of separation, and the hosts knowledge extended well past the lecture and they were happy to answer related questions. I highly recommend the experience for anyone with an interest in the history of intelligence, WW2, or history in general - there are a number of interesting links to Iceland. If you have a low attention span the lecture may not be for you.

Great Experience! We really enjoyed the lecture; it was rich, relevant, and served as a comprehensive introduction to William Stephenson. The setting was perfect for this type of activity, bringing a lot of authenticity to the experience. David managed to draw us into the story while maintaining our interest, even with a presentation that lasted approximately 1 hour. If you love James Bond, spies, or have a nerdy inclination towards these types of things, this is the activity you should try in Reykjavik

Life is Stranger than Fiction! The setting for the lecture was perfect. The presentation takes place in the basement of a house where Mi6 had their offices during WWII. The presentation included pictures and videos. The stories they told about the spy master William Stephenson were bizarre and fantastical but apparently all true! I was skeptical going into it but it was a lot of fun. The presenter kept my attention the whole time. I didn’t look at my phone even once. I won’t soon forget this experience.

Secrets revealed in the secret basement. Fascinating and crazy story meticulously and lovingly researched by two Icelandic brothers. One of the brothers, Hudi, welcomed us to the secret basement and did the multimedia presentation. He’s lovely. Great way to spend an hour on a rainy Reykyavik afternoon.
