We were scheduled to visit Iceland the first week in July but had to cancel due to COVID restrictions of USA residents to the country. I was dealing with Jon from BR Tours, who had coordinated 5 exciting days of private tours throughout Iceland. He is accessible, organized, knowledgeable, professional, and an absolute pleasure to deal with. Upon postponed of the trip, Jon immediately cancelled all of the excursions, activities, refunds, and took care of everything in the best way possible. I truly look forward to visiting Iceland when things return to normal and I will absolutely be using Jon and BR Tours for all arrangements.

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.

BR Tours is excellent..Jon help us plan the trip..we collaborized and he provided us with a detailed suggestion and summary,it was a holiday week (christmas,its when we usually do our trip and only time we are available) not a lot of tours are available, thank God Jon endorsed us to Siggi as our tour guide/driver..Siggi is the best..he knows all of iceland as well as the people..iceland can be very unpredictable with weather conditions and a lot of people warned us on going there during winter season but no regrets despite the changes in weather Siggi is an expert driver,never did we experience any turbulence in the car no matter how strong the wind or how dark the area..Siggi even provided us shoe crampoons which really help a lot walking in the ice..he scheduled all the sightseeing in time despite the short daytime during winter..we saw a lot of beautiful places because of Siggi,his timing and knowledge..the only thing we missed is the aurora and ice cave due to unpredictable weather nevertheless maybe next time again,surely we will go for BR Tours all over gain..highly recommended..thanks Jon and especially Siggi for keeping us safe,letting us see a lot of places and spending christmas with us..your the kindest and best.😃

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.
