Overall just a great trip. Guide was very informative, friendly, and helpful. Anton kept us informed us what was coming up made a few extra stops and adjusted as there were only 2 of us onboard. Even gave a few tips on eating places in Reykjavik. As well as along the way.
Patiently waited as i am a smoker so needed a few extra minutes here and there to have a smoke.
Thanks again Anton...

We must have looked at dozens of tour operators prior to our trip, and I am so glad we settled on BTI Travel! Our day touring the South Coast with Hawk was perfect! We also thought long and hard about whether to tour the Golden Circle or the South Coast, and I am very glad we decided to avoid the crowds and do the south coast.

I could rave about the beautiful scenery, waterfalls, beaches, wildlife but everyone already knows about all of that or you wouldn't have chosen to go to Iceland, right? Instead I'll mention what set this tour apart.....

We were first off our ship (literally) and Hawk was already there waiting for us. He spent the extra time telling us about Reykjavik and stopping for photos until it was time to pick up the other two couples on the tour.

We had a set itinerary which wound up taking almost 12 hours, but Hawk still included many extras. He was always extremely clear about what we were seeing, where to go, and when to be back at the mini bus. At some stops he went with us to guide us, other times we explored on our own. During down time while we were driving, he gave us an in-depth view of life in Iceland and answered our millions of questions. I think Hawk responded to the fact that we aren't "typical" cruise ship passengers (we want to go places the rest of the ship doesn't) and wanted to give us the most thorough experience of Iceland that he possibly could in one day.

I had some specific things on my list I wanted to see and photo and I was able to get them all:
puffins - ✔
Icelandic horses up close - ✔
rainbow after a brief shower - ✔

There were rain ponchos in the vehicle, but bring a raincoat and jacket along and wear good walking shoes. Weather is famously changeable in Iceland, so it's good to be prepared. If you do the South Coast, you'll get wet going behind one of the waterfalls (don't miss!) but that is planned so you'll know ahead of time.

Since we were on a ship and didn't have time to look around Reykjavik on our own, Hark wanted us to see the city so he took time after dropping the other couples off to show us around. He stopped at the Hallgrímskirkja church and gave us time to go inside before taking us back to the ship. We really appreciated this little extra tour around town, because Reykjavik is a lovely city and I would have hated to miss it.

For the length of the tour and the places we went, the cost was very reasonable and it was like a private tour since there were so few of us. We are already talking about a return trip to Iceland and there is no doubt that we'll contact BTI again to take us the places we weren't able to go this time! Thank you so much for such a perfect day!

Visiting the South Coast with Anton as our guide was great!! The waterfalls were amazing, the sun shone and we got to see double rainbows. The lava formations and black sand beach were other-worldly. Anton was a terrific guide — providing lots of information, great sense of humor, excellent English and even understood our sarcasm. Took us to a great restaurant for lunch (delicious Arctic char), and is an excellent driver. He gave us as much time as we wanted to explore each of the sites. We highly recommend this tour.

My family of 9 booked a private tour with Tomas. We had a fantastic day seeing the sites on a tour that was personalized for us. Tomas took our interests and activity levels into account and made stops that were so special. We never felt rushed. Tomas also shared interesting facts and stories about Iceland.

I highly recommend this company! We were only two passengers but the company went ahead with the tour anyway without cancelling, which shows how much they really care about customers. Anton went the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable during the whole tour, stopping for breaks and also driving us to less know spots to help us take beautiful pictures. He shared very interesting facts about Iceland and sagas, which made this tour so enjoyabl and the best we had in Iceland. Anton also helped us book an evening tour for northern lights with Siggi which was also brilliant. Don't think twice and book this company!

Our family (kids 14 and 11) took this tour when our cruise ship docked in Reykjavik. This was easily one of the best decisions we made on our entire trip. Even before we arrived, BTI was easy to communicate with and promptly answered our questions. Once we got there, our driver was Anton, the owner of the company. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and most importantly flexible. The four of us were the only ones on the tour that day, so he treated us as a private tour. At every stop he was willing to give us the time we needed to fully experience the beauty and wonder of Iceland and often told us to come back to the bus when we were ready. As a result, our 10 hour tour wound of taking about 12 hours and we loved every minute of it. While we were driving he gave us loads of great information about what we were seeing and the history of Iceland. At several of the stops he got out with us and took a pictures of our whole family together, which was a really nice touch. He even took us out of the way to show us some of the even more unique sites (they grow bananas in Icelandic - who would have guessed). Anton told us when we started that we would get the Icelandic virus and need to come back and he was right. When we do come back, we will definitely be using Back to Iceland.

Last week my friend and I went on the South Coast & Glacier Lagoon tour with the Back to Iceland Travel tour company. This small family owned business offers wonderful tours at reasonable rates.
The owner, Antanas, was our tour guide. He offered a wealth of information about many aspects of Iceland including, geothermal energy, farming, animals and more.
The tour included stops at interesting sites with time to explore. Antanas even offered to take pictures of us!
We were happy to have plenty of bathroom, coffee and meal breaks!
This tour was a highlight of our trip to Iceland, a beautiful country!
