Jon make sure we got to see what WE wanted to see! If I could give 10 stars I would.

The only way to see Iceland in a few days

We were extremely happy with the high quality service provided. He made our experience truly magical by taking us to sites not commonly known.

Amazing Tour

Our family had the most amazing trip with Jon as our tour guide. I cannot say enough about our day and a half. We will never forget the wonderful time we had in Iceland.

Amazing Trip with Jon Through Reykjavik and South

This tour was the centerpiece of our trip, and Jon made it the most amazing vacation of my life. If I were to do it again, I would have added a 4th day to the tour to see the Northern Fjords. The tour was so very worth it, and beyond my expectations. Thank you, Jon!

Made Our Trip The Most Incredible Experience Ever!

I would definitely recommend this company.

Amazing and Memorable

Couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

Fantastic Personal Tour

Jon gives 100% effort to ensure that you leave Iceland happy.

Fantastic and Memorable Trip

The tour was awesome….Jon is a very knowledgeable and wonderful guide.

All Praises for the Guide

Hopefully, we will return to Iceland. We would look no further than Jón for our next trip!

Exceeded Every Expectation

Jon took us to some of the most incredible scenery we have ever experienced.

So glad I chose this tour company for our Iceland trip

The entire group had an amazing time exploring the beauty of Iceland with Jon.

Highly recommendable tour guide!

If you want to see Iceland, do yourself a favor and call Jon.

Amazing Adventure!

As a family, we have traveled all over the world and always hire guides for our trips. Jon was the best guide we have ever used. He was professional, highly knowledgeable, nice, and really tried to make the trip fun and exciting for all of us.

Best Tour Guide Ever

An excellent tour provided by Jon. A truly memorable trip, nothing was to much trouble.


Jon is a guide who actually cares about your experience and not just someone who is going through the motions.

Jon is best tour guide in Iceland!

We were grateful that we choose BR Tours. We had never planned to visit Iceland – but they made it a great trip.

Great Three Day Stay

During my planning stage, Jon was very helpful and provided a lot of ideas to help me work out a rough itinerary.

8 Days Round Island Tour With an Impressive Guide

Jon was the nicest, most knowledgeable and accommodating tour guide we have ever had. He went over and above our expectations! You won’t be disappointed!

Best Tour Guide!

Jon took us to more places in the 4 days that we were in Iceland than we could have possibly imagined. We also got to see so much that you just wouldn’t see on the main tours. I can’t recommend this man more.

Best Tour Guide you can ever have

Dealing with Jon was wonderful, throughout the whole process. He is responsive and very helpful.

Great Experience!

I would have absolutely no hesitation recommending Jon to anyone traveling to Iceland.


Had an unforgettable time, can’t wait to go back and see more of this beautiful country!!

2 Great Days Discovering Iceland

Jon arranged for us to celebrate our second wedding anniversary. He bought us a champaign and let us enjoy it in a wild hot spring. This was an wonderful experience that we had never been so close to the nature in Hong Kong.

Excellent 6 Days in Iceland

Best tour company we ever had – Iceland cruise Reykjavik port:   We (12 of us) were on the Holland Prinsendam, July 2013 and had a 2 day tour of Reykjavik lined up with Jon of BR Tours. Our ship got stock in Amsterdam for several days due to mechanical issues, so Holland rearranged our schedule and now only had one day in Reykjavik. Jon arranged a 14 hr tour (which included a box lunch as we requested so we ate as he drove to save time). We did the 2 day tour in the one day and saw all the highlights: Thingvellir National Park, Waterfall Gullfoss, Kerid, Eldhestar horse farm, Hellisheidi Geothermal Power Plant, swam in Blue Lagoon, Reykjavik City Tour, hot spring Gunnuhver & of course the Geysir. I can’t rave enough how accommodating BR Tours was to our change of schedule – Jon did an EXCELLENT job! We’re coming back to Reykjavik in Sept 2015 and planning a South Coast of Iceland tour with them again – I know we won’t be disappointed!

Best Tour Company We Ever Had!

Can’t recommend BR Tours highly enough.

Two Exceptional Days

Here is a guide who know and loves his country. Thanks Jon for a fantastic four day trip. See you next time! Need we say more?


Thank you Jon for making our trip to Iceland so memorable! It was the highlight of our Viking passage cruise!

Wonderful Tour of Reykjavik!

What a wonderful two days in Reykjavik spent with BR tours. Can’t recommend this company highly enough!

BR Tours are the BEST

We had a fabulous time and were treated to the beauty and wonder that is Iceland. It was the highlight of my cruise!

Wonderful 3-day Tour of Iceland

I would recommend Jon as a guide, because he is knowledgeable, friendly and very accommodating, always offfering us options and taking us to places we thoroughly enjoyed! What a wonderful introduction to Iceland, ’cause we are definitely going back! Takk, Jon!

Can’t wish for a better host and guide to Iceland

You can’t go wrong booking Jon Thorisson as a guide.

Touring Iceland The Best Way

My friends and I (total of 5) had a great tour around Iceland with Jon in March for around 5-6 days!

Great Tour Experience!

Apart from being very knowledgeable about the finer details on the attractions such as the best times and best locations, Jon was also very willing to accommodate to our requests. He was also honest and had integrity, he was genuinely interested in giving us the best experience in Iceland.

Absolutely fun and amazing experience. Worth every moment.

All in all we fully recommend using BR Tours to organise your sightseeing as well as Light chasing when in Iceland.

Northern Lights!

I highly recommend taking this tour if you are not renting a car or if you want to avoid the bus. Jon was very helpful and catered to all of our requests and made it an unforgettable tour.

Great Last Minute Tour of The South Coast

I have no end of superlatives to describe my experience with BR Tours. Without question, I would and have recommended the services of BR Tours.

Traveling a Volcanic Wonderland

BR Tours is a grand and dynamic agency. Our 8 days in Iceland was wonderful. Filled with both a specific plan designed for us because Jon spent time understanding who we are and flexible enough because sometimes we didn’t find out what else we could do until Jon lead us to his discoveries.

Time Spent Touring Iceland

Absolutely outstanding 2 day tour with Jon and company doing the Golden Circle, Blue Lagoon, geothermal plant, horse farm, plus. From my initial contact for booking to our goodbyes at the port at the end of two days, this was a most pleasant experience. I highly recommend BR Tours to anyone wanting to do an Iceland excursion.

Want to see Iceland? Go with BR Tours — The BEST!

Best Tour Company in Iceland. We spent two days with Jon as part of a group from a cruise ship. I communicated with him via email to set up two tours to different parts of Iceland. Jon was always very prompt in returning emails, answering questions, being flexible in arranging a tour as we asked and being accomodating with time and price. He is so knowledgeable about Iceland and it was very easy to spend two days with him (12 hours the first day and 8 hours the next).

The first day we did the „Golden Circle“ tour and we then went to the South Shore. This was a long day but we saw more in one day than most people would see in three days of doing cruise ship tours. We had a comfortable mini bus that held 16 people and there were 12 of us.

The second day we went to the Reykjanes Peninsula, Blue Lagoon (visit – no swimming) and back into town for shopping. This day there were 11 of us in the mini bus. Jon took people who did not want to shop back to the ship and then came back at a later time to pick the rest of us up in town and took us back to the ship.

Both days, the price of the tour was very reasonable and we saw so much more than on a typical crusie ship tour. We did not have the same people touring with us both day yet all of the people in both groups felt that the tours were well worth the price and they loved the outstanding customer service that Jon provided. We were able to pay at the end of the tour each day with cash or a credit card.

We have organized other tours in other countries and working with Jon and BR Tours was one of the best experiences we have ever had with arranging a tour. Email Jon at BR Tours and let him know what you are thinking about for a tour and he will let you know what is possible, make suggestions and do everything he can to make your time in Iceland an experience you won’t forget. His personality and customer service is far above an excellent rating!!

Best Tour Company in Iceland!

We were a group of 6 people traveling and we stumbled upon Jon during a quest to book a private tour. He was punctual, accommodating, knowledgeable and overall a fun person to hang out with during the time we were there. I highly recommend hiring him.

Excellent, friendly, professional, everything you look for in a guide

I would have no hesitation in recommending Jon and BR Tours. We felt well advised, well looked after and experienced some amazing and unique sights.

This is the Iceland Tour Company to go with!!

My husband and I, and another couple, spent 8 days in Iceland with Jon as our tour guide. He was a very safe driver, and made us feel comfortable and well taken-care of. We recommend him without reservation!

Best vacation ever! Private tour Iceland

Best Private Guide Service:  We searched the Internet and sent out several requests for private guide services. Bragi responded almost immediately and that set the tone for our excellent tour of South Iceland. Jon Thorisson was our guide and we had a great time. He accommodated all of our needs and requests. After a day in Reykjavik on our own, Jon picked us up from our hotel and transferred us to the Reykjavik airport where we took a smaller plane to Hofn to start out grand adventure.

He hired a nice four wheel drive vehicle and off we went to areas where we saw few, if any people. We saw some amazing sights, including the largest herd of reindeer Jon has ever seen. We climbed up areas in our 4WD until the snow blocked the road. We hiked and stopped to refill our water bottles with fresh spring water from streams. We saw and walked among glaciers and empty glacier beds (that had been washed away by the last volcano eruption). We hiked the glacier and sat in an ice cave.

I can’t begin to write down all that Jon showed us and told us. From the visit to a grocery store, the picnics near the cliffs where puffins fly to eating dried fish with lots of butter. We had meals of reindeer carpaccio, smoked puffin and Minsk whale. We stayed at an amazing country inn, Hotel Ranga, who will wake you up at night to see the Northern Lights (which we didn’t get to see).

Jon took care of our every need. We didn’t have to worry about paying for anything. We payed only at the end. He was personable and friendly and felt as if he were our friend at the end of our four days with him.

We are already planning our next trip back!
