Very, very nice and competent tour guide. New car, comfortable. Great knowledge, completely open to all your wishes John made our stay in this incredible overrated and expensive country which to our opinion doesn't live up to expectations.

Jon with BR Tours was Amazing. He took us to the Secret Lagoon which is a natural geothermal heated pool. The geyser that heats the pool is visible & makes the water extra warm. Especially, for a late night swim! You can buy beers & have a drink as you float around on a pool "noodle". So relaxing & beautiful.... More

I reached out to Jon to arrange a tour for our Iceland vacation this winter. Although he was already booked, he spent so much time with me recommending the places I should visit and places to stay. He really went out of his way even though clearly he had nothing to gain from it.

We, the seven of us, took a nine day private grand circle tour of Iceland with Jon in August. The places we covered were Snaefellsnes Peninsula, North Coast, East Coast, South Coast, Golden Circle and Reykjavik. We went for Vatnshellir Lava Tube Cave tour, whale watching, zodiac tour on Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon and geothermal pool in Myvatn & Blue Lagoon... More

From the very first email, requesting information about touring with BR Tours, Jón showed flexibility and understanding of our needs. He knew that seeing the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon and the South Coast of Iceland were must see sites or us. Given our very limited amount of time in Iceland before we started our cruise and the very long summer days... More

Jon picked us up at Keflavik airport at about 6:00 in the morning after an overnight flight from Boston. He had planned out a day of sightseeing, and what a full day it was as he didn't drop us off at our guest house until nearly midnight! Iceland is a lovely country with some amazing scenery and natural attractions. Jon... More

Jon took our party of 6 around the Golden Circle area for two days in late June 2016 for what was the highlight of a very enjoyable short stay in wonderful Iceland. I can only endorse the 5* rating given by so many previous reviews. Two days is quite a long time to spend with someone so you want things... More

Jon is a super cool guy. We met him through the Arctic Trucks Experience, and we used his services for a day to take a Toyota Hilux down some F-Roads for a magazine photo shoot. Not only did Jon know just about everything having to do with Iceland, but he was incredibly knowledgeable about driving in snow, mud, and rivers,... More

Jón guided and drove us around Iceland for 5 days with his powerful and comfortable and luxurious 4×4. He was explaining to us the geographical and historical background of each place we visited as well as showing us all those maginificent volcanic mountains, glaciers and lava fields. I was travelling with my elderly parents who were happy with Jón for... More

The first and foremost thing I remember from this trip is Jon's big and comfortable Chevrelot. We are a family of 6 and all of us feel very comfortable in Jon's car. Jon is very friendly and approachable. Just tell him what you need(eg "I need to dip in a hot spring") and he knows where it is. Thank you... More
