          Everyone was pleased.
          We took a tour with Beyond Reykjavik in the Summer of 2022. Our group was 9 people ranging from age 9 to 81, including four kids under 18. Jon arranged a customized five-day itinerary for us that included Snaefellsnes, the Golden Circle, the South Coast, and the Westman Islands, and he even let us explore Reykjavik on our own (with suggestions, of course). Along the way took many stops, and each one was more incredible than the last: waterfalls, glaciers, icebergs, and Diamond Beach. etc. We hit everything you would want, and Jon had all of the pertinent information about each site. From the time he picked us up at the airport, until the time he dropped us off at the end of the week, we felt like Jon made us a part of his family, and we had the time of our lives.

          4 dayr Iceland Tour
          Jon was fantastic. He listened to our desires during many planning discussions and recommended places and activities accordingly, for our 4 day tour. His discussions on Iceland’s history, as well as present living, brought true meaning to our visit to the beautiful country. Jon knew how to fill gaps in between any planned activities and kept us continually enriched with Iceland’s varied terrain. We highly recommend BR Tours !

          Custom Family Tour
          We had an amazing trip to Iceland!! And using BR Tours really made the experience special and easy! Siggi picked us up at the airport and took us to the Blue Lagoon, gave us an overview of Reykjavik and got us settled at our Air BnB. We then spent the next 8 days with Jon travelling around the country. Our family of 5 saw amazing sights, learned about Iceland and participated in a variety of activities. We did everything from mountain biking to ATV rides to kayaking to snowmobiling! Jon did an excellent job of coordinating our itinerary without ever making us feel rushed or completely locked in to the plan. He would shift timing of stops based on our interests, who was hungry, or just how we were feeling. He kept this family of 5 happy and interested the entire time! Not always easy with 3 teenagers in tow! We would definitely recommend BR Tours and we would hire them again if we make it back to Iceland!

          My Family's Amazing 4 Day Tour of Iceland's Highlights with Jon and BR Tours
          My family of 6 had the most incredible trip together in Iceland this past Easter weekend(2023) and we have Jon of BR Tours to credit. We decided to spend quality family time together without any other tourists to interfere in our experiences. This was the first time our family had a private tour guide and we do not regret for one second our decision to see Iceland this way. We are thoroughly pleased we choose Jon to take us on a 4 day tour of the beautiful sights and thrilling experiences in this must see country. Jon tailored our tour plan exactly to our liking leaving just the right amount of time to never feel like we were rushed or cut short. His expertise of having done so many successful tours with other groups/families was evident. He took our requests and removed things he knew were not worth the time or expense. He added other sights and experiences that worked perfectly with the timeline we were on - Golden Circle, Geyser, Waterfalls, South coast, Black Sand beach, Glacier Lagoon, Ice Cave Tour, Diamond Beach and the new volcanic flats. The hidden gems(lava field walk, glacier walks, water springs, and others) were extremely enjoyable and interesting to my family. His knowledge of the landscape, geological facts, and history of Iceland and its people kept us engaged during the drives and the stops. His warm, welcoming, friendly and relaxed personality was exactly what my family needed on this trip. We were able to completely chill out in his luxurious and roomy Mercedes Splinter Van. Without us having to drive and navigate the roads, we could sit back and take in Iceland’s amazing scenery. The van also allowed us to comfortably change in it as the weather switched from site to site(rain, sun, wind). As you can see, Jon beautifully captured our time together with picturesque photos that we will cherish. A once in a lifetime trip with a great guide and true gentleman. My boys called him the G.O.A.T. Thank you Jon!

          BR tours is the best for a reason
          BR tours is the 100% the absolute BEST tour company in Iceland. There is a reason Jon has only 5 star reviews on google and trip advisor and that's because he does things that no other company can offer. Right from the planning stage, Jon will be working with you hand in hand setting up the perfect vacation for your travel group. He will take care of everything, and of course you have the option to tell him what sites to see, and he has connections with all the best people from the snowmobiles, to ATVS, to the ice caves. From the minute you land, until the time you are dropped off at the airport, you truly are a VIP, with Jon making sure you are having the best time of your life. Not only is he a local who works with the best of the best people, he will take you off the beaten path, and you will see things you cant find on google or that you couldn't even dream of. In addition to that being what separates him from everyone else, Jon truly cares and his sole mission when you are in Iceland is to treat you like a VIP, make sure every need is met, and to make sure you have the best vacation of your lifetime. We traveled in November of 2022 and it was a magical experience and exceeded every expectation we had. Since the weather is constantly changing in Iceland, Jon also always had a backup plan just in case the weather didn't cooperate. If you have read this far, it is clear I would give him a million star review if possible. You are in the best hands in Iceland the minute you contact BR tours and Jon. He is quick at communicating as well, and I could go on and on about how great of a vacation we had, but I don't want to spoil all the surprises Jon will have in store for your party. Its just amazing. WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW

          Amazing experience in a beautiful country. Very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. Easy to work with and a friendly guide. We got to see waterfalls, tectonic plates, northern lights, among other wonders in nature. Jon was amazing to travel the country with. Set us up with other guides to enhance our experience. Highly recommend!!!

          INCREDIBLE 3 Day Adventure with BR Tours, Highly Recommend!!!
          I booked 3 Private Day Trips through Jon (Golden Circle Tour, Thorsmark and the Glacier Lagoon) and he knocked it out of the park on all 3 excursions. He is incredibly responsive, and tailored the trips to my teenage boys and their need for adventure. The two tour guides he arranged for us were superb. Lena took us through the Golden Circle and she was knowledgable but also so much fun to spend the day. Siggy then took us on our tour of the south coast and took us to places we never would have been able to experience if not for traveling with him. He also entertained us with stories of the country throughout our time with him. The next day we drove to the Glacier Lagoon, and experienced an incredible Zodiac Boat Tour which Jon explained was a MUST SEE (and boy was he right). Book him and explain what you are looking for in your vacation and he will do the rest. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

          Wonderful Time With Jon!
          We had an AMAZING time with Jon. We did a week-long trip with Jon and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a personalized tour of Iceland. Jon was very flexible and accommodating and an overall great guy. Jon was great at recommending activities that were perfect for our group of 4. The ATV rides and Ice Cave tour were a fan favorite in our group! 10/10 would love to come back in the spring for more adventures with Jon!

          Exceeded Expectations (which were high!)
          Jon was a tremendous guide from our first contact (7 months prior to arrival) through pick up and our day long tour. Inquisitive clients like me can (I’m told) get annoying with many question. Jon handled each question like a pro, providing clear answers each time. We made a few stops off the regular tour—he is very open to customizing. He maximized our tour to take advantage of the light (sunrise at 10:30) comfortable ride, incredible insights and memories!

          Great four days in Iceland
          We gave a lot of thought to what we wanted to see in Iceland so we booked four days with BR and an excellent guide, Siggi. The first day was a tour of the Golden circle where we walked between the European and North American tectonic plates, saw an erupting geyser, thermal pools, and the amazing Gulfoss falls. The second day was our best weather and we used it to go to the Snaefellsjokull peninsula where we saw amazing vistas of the peninsula, fishing villages, a hidden black pebble beach, sea cliffs, a glacier, lava fields and waterfalls, including one not visible from the road where we were able to take pictures from behind the falls. On the third and fourth days we went to the south coast. On day three we saw more amazing waterfalls, walked to a glacier and took photos under an ice bridge, saw basalt cliff formations that looked like something from a science fiction movie, walked on a black sand beach and went to a spot looking into a deep gorge with, of course, another huge waterfall. The final day we got up close to the huge Vatnajökull glacier including a boat ride on a lake at the edge of the glacier where small parts of the glacier were floating all around us, a visit (accessible by a super jeep with huge tires) to an ice cave formed by run off from the glacier where the sun shines through the ice making the whole cave shine white and blue, a visit to another black sand beach where pieces of the glacier that had washed out to sea by a river were washed back up by waves. In addition doing all of the driving, Siggi was great in arranging the trip to maximize the use of good weather days. He also explained the natural and human history of Iceland during the long drives. What we appreciated most was his ability to show us different approaches and sights that would have been impossible for us to find on our own. For example, he suggested we walk along the edge of a creek behind a 50 foot rock. It looked like nothing special from the outside. Inside was a small canyon into which a waterfall poured. There were so many more. We really enjoyed our trips with Siggi and loved the sights we saw.

          5 ⭐️- 3 Day Private Tour Golden Circle and South Iceland
          Highly recommend Beyond Reykjavik Tours. Our family of 5 (2 adults, 2 teens and a tween) took a private 3 day tour of the Golden Circle and South Iceland with an overnight in Vik. We opted for the 15 passenger van and it’s was 100% worth the extra cost. The owner of BR, Jon, was so helpful in creating an itinerary that would best suit our family. He also advised us on clothing needs (bring full rain gear and waterproof hiking boots). We had multiple phone calls with him prior to our trip and he used our input to shape a FANTASTIC experience for our family. Our tour guide, Arni, was INCREDIBLE both with his knowledge of Iceland and his love of adventure. We saw the most amazing things on our 3 day tour that we absolutely would never have known about doing a self guided tour. Arni arranged a zip lining tour for us in VIk and took us to several off the beaten path places including a canyon and a working dairy for ice cream. Would highly recommend adding the zodiac tour in glacier lagoon. We had the most amazing time and the tour was worth every penny. Arni packed our days with fun and adventure showing us his beautiful country. We are so grateful to BR, Jon, and Arni for making our trip so spectacular.

        Had an excellent day tour! Weather was not the best but Jon did really make the most of it by making sure we prioritised the glaciers over waterfalls (which we wanted). Lunch stop recommendation was excellent and just no complaints except for the weather which we can’t control. Car was very comfortable and Jon was very nice and knowledgeable on all sorts of topics. Highly recommend using again!

        We are a family of 4 with 2 young kids (10 and 7) and we had 2 fabulous days with Arni exploring Landmannalauger and Thorsmork. Arni was so knowledgeable about the culture and environment. He was very laid back and flexible and allowed us to explore various sights at our own pace and adapt the itinerary on the fly as needed. We can’t recommend him enough!

        This was the best trip my friends and I have ever taken. The 5 of us are in our mid 20's and we came to Iceland for a quick 3 day winter trip. We did the 3 day South Coast of Iceland Private Trip with Jon! He picked us up from the airport in an extremely comfortable VW van and was a phenomenal driver the entire trip. Jon is extremely flexible with planning your trip before arriving as well as during the tour. He knows all the best places to go to get the full experience without getting stuck in touristy spots. He made all of the accommodation bookings at phenomenal hotels. Honestly nothing could have gone better for us. There's a reason he gets such high reviews! I will be recommending him to anyone I know looking to go to Iceland!

        We did a 2 day trip with BR Tours and we had Arni as our guide. Dealing with Jon to make the booking was stress free and itinerary was left In his capable hands. We got to see and do so much and had the best time. Arni was very knowledgeable and took us to places not included in the itinerary which my girls absolutely loved. We would not have seen hardly as much as we did had we of gone alone. Thank you very much!!

        Our experience with Jon and BR private tour was perfect from when I first contacted Jon until he dropped us off at the airport. Jon helped us craft a personalized itinerary that made it possible for us to do everything we wanted and quite a few extras without ever feeling rushed. We got to do the Golden Circle, South coast, Black Sand beach, Glacier Lagoon & Small Ice Cave Tour, Diamond Beach, Reykanes Peninsula with the new volcanic flats and so much more. We have dietary restrictions and Jon was able to find the perfect place to stop every time. Our trip was fantastic and I highly, highly recommend booking with Jon.

        We had a truly amazing experience with our exceptional tour guide, Siggi. We did the golden circle, south coast, and northern lights tours. Siggi was very friendly and knowledgeable. He went out of his way to accommodate us so that we could see everything during our trip. He’s the best tour guide around. I would highly recommend him.

        We just used Jon from BR Tours for 6 full days touring in Iceland. We were two families of 3 and I must says Jon is the absolute best guide. He knows what he’s doing and all of his recommendations were absolutely perfect. We had an incredibly memorable experience and we know it would not have been anywhere the same had we not used Jon from BR Tours. He took us to incredible off the beaten path places as well as the most popular places. The best excursions he coordinated were the zodiac tour in the glacier lagoon and the kayak tour with the icebergs.

        We are tough people to please but Jon exceeded our high expectations exponentially. Use him- plain and simple.

        I was traveling with 11 friends for a 4-night visit to Iceland, only one of whom had been to Iceland before, as I had. As you can imagine, there was a lot of back and forth about which activities interested all 12 of us, and how we wanted to tackle those activities. Some of us wanted to venture all the way out to Diamond Beach as part of the South Coast tour, but after talking to BR Tours, it became clear that it was too ambitious for a single day tour, especially in the winter with limited daylight. Eight of us ended up on this private tour with Siggi as our driver and guide, which provided great flexibility. He made fantastic recommendations on where to stop and how best to maximize the use of the limited daylight. For example, after a long walk to the Solheimafijara Glacier, we had our lunch at the food truck by the parking lot rather than venturing further east to Vik. Siggi was very patient with us as were able to work in an additional stop/detour to visit the remains of the US Navy Douglas Super DC-3 that crashed in Sólheimasandur in 1973. Siggi also provided commentary as we passed various landmarks, which made the trip educational as well. It was a very long tour, but the van was comfortable, with more leg room than I've experienced in vans of the same size.

        When I first read the reviews I was a little worried because they were all 5 stars. I decided to book anyway and I am so glad I did. Our group (ages 14-61) loved it. Jon was very friendly and informative. He was flexible as to sites we wanted to see and showed us a part of the world we would not have otherwise seen. He encouraged us to do things we might not have done. My sister-in-law is afraid of heights but she climbed to the top of one of the waterfalls because he of him.
        We also toured the Golden Circle with Jon. If you have the time I suggest you do that first and then visit the South Coast. You won't regret it.
