The problem is you are returning Iterator object from reverse() method. To the for-each loop you have to provide collection, which in this case List.

foreach syntax:
for(variable:collection)

works for Collections and arrays

Look at the bold lines in the above code. The return type is Iterator which is using to traverse the list, but for-each construct only allows collection or array.

There is no problem regarding traverse in a reverse order in this example.
