Owner description: BTI travel is a family owned tour operator in Iceland. We specialize in the tourism in Iceland. We have a great variety of regular day, private tours and airport transfers. You can choose from and once you have booked a tour we can guarantee that there will be a professional driver/guide. We use only brand new comfortable Mercedes Sprinter small buses from 9 to 18 seats and therefore never take a larger amount of people on tour then 17 and try to keep the number as low as we can.

We used Back to Iceland for all 4 days on private tours and transportation. We did roundtrip airport and Blue Lagoon transfers and the Northern Lights and Circle tour.

The Mercedes Sprinter was a nice new bus and has good wifi and comfortable seats.

The tours were good, of the guides Hawk was our favorite of the 3 and wish we hade him he entire time but the other guides were fine.

For the prices they are competitive and little cheaper than the other private options.

Would recommend.

Tour guides were knowledgeable and did good job but they swap drivers on you a lot after driver says he will take you next day. One promised to show my son some stuff and then didn't show. He was disappointed by this badly.

One driver had great knowledge but talked about a lot of items that meant nothing about the country. Spent 30 minutes talking about elfs and most of time didn't get out of the van or guide us at all at the sites.

The sprinter door didn't close tight so had 7 hours of air coming in the door and he driver spoke so quietly and with a thick accent hard to understand much of what they said.

Also driver made much bigger deal about seeing the northern lights. Acted like had secret location. Just side road they parked on. No big secret location at all.

Overall not bad but nothing incredible compared to other guides tours I have been on.

Dear scott r,
In the tourist business things change very fast. That is why we needed to swap drivers, that is also why the driver did not show and could not fulfill his promise and we are sorry for the inconvenience.
Regarding the private Golden Circle tour, we got the one of the best guides in the country to service you, complaints about him are non existent. The stories about elves and trolls are a huge part of Icelandic history, you where lucky to have his vast knowledge in your tour. We received another comment from your own group, no complaints, that is what we find confusing.
About the Northern Lights and „secret location“, like explained to you on that tour there is no secret location, it was a question of finding a good location away from the large buses that we ahead of us. We picked a private spot away from all that, and also yes it was by the side of the road, you may have noticed we could not stop anywhere else due to the amount of snow.
You where on a brand new Mercedes Sprinter, the door has not been a problem for any tours and transfers and same goes for the microphone used in the vehicle.
Thank you for taking the time to write your review, we truly appreciate it. With kind regards from Iceland.

We used back to Iceland for all our tours, we were picked up from the airport and brought to the blue lagoon where the guide showed us around and said no rush with time. She was waiting for us afterward and brought us to our apartments. The following evening our guide Anton brought us to to a spot where we could see the Northern Lights. The highlight of the trip was the golden circle tour. Anton was very informative and gave us loads of time and options in the day. Bus was warm and comfy. Highly recommend booking with back to Iceland!

Back to Iceland Travel is a must for seeing the sights. Our driver Anton would frequently stop at unscheduled spots just to enhance the experience of seeing and enjoying Iceland. He also provided information on places to dine. Excellent choice.
