MEMBERS COMMENTS ON THE ICELAND TOURS, WINTER AND SUMMER

  • Thank you Jona for such a marvellous Iceland Tour, we saw so
    much – nature, culture, farming, architecture, museums, local
    people, the list is endless. We just loved the scenery and
    enjoyed the great food and good accommodation. I am sure
    we will travel with you again.
    Gina and Peter.
  • Yes we wanted to see the Northern Lights, and we did, but that
    was only a very small part of the holiday, the wonders of the
    island was magnificent!
    Barbara and Terry.
  • We have come back with so many happy memories of a
    fantastic holiday, and it’s thanks to you and your wonderful
    team. Your enthusiasm reflected back to us and we are sure,
    to all the members on the coach.
    Jean and Mike.
  • We would like to say how much we enjoyed our trip to Iceland,
    yes we were unfortunate not to see the northern lights, but this
    did not take anything away from the holiday! It was delightful
    to see the country in its winter splendour, we were amazed at
    the big skies, and the effects of low light on the mountains!
    David and Eileen.
  • I had a fantastic holiday, it was brilliant, the people were
    friendly and helpful, your team, Fanney and driver Siggi were
    very kind and accommodating. I would also like to say that
    the holiday was great value for money. I will be
    recommending your tour to my senior colleagues.

  • Fanney your guide looked after us with great care, she worked
    extremely hard and shared her enthusiasm for her native
    country in a way that made us all want to be Icelandic too!
    Siggi is simply one of the very best drivers that I have come
    across in over thirty years of travelling. Not only is he a very
    careful and sensitive driver, he is equally caring and
    sensitive in the way that he treats people, he has a fun-loving
    yet gentle personality.

  • The magic of Iceland is now in our brain’s memory boxes to
    be cherished, thank you for making our holiday so wonderful.
    Neil and I found Iceland just as amazing as on our two
    previous visits, and we will make sure we do not stop at three
    Icelandic encounters.
    Wendy and Neil.
  • We wanted to tell you just how much we enjoyed your
    Northern Lights tour, despite the lack of the display of the
    shimmering wonder. We thoroughly appreciated the sheer
    professionalism, dedication and hard work that you put in.
    The organisation was brilliant, we saw lots of spectacular and
    fascinating new things, and it was a real delight to be part of
    a tour whose leader and driver are so passionate about their
    country. We are already looking forward to your Western
    Wilderness tour.
    Steve and Janet.
  • Thank you Jona so much for a wonderful
    holiday, there was something different and
    exciting every day and it was all brilliant!
    Thank you again for all your hard work and
    fantastic organising, hope to see you again on
    another tour.
    Jenny and Colin.
  • I just want to thank you so much for such a
    fantastic holiday. I have always wanted to go to
    Iceland and, wow, what a beautiful country – I
    loved it! I felt you gave us a wonderful insight
    into all aspects of the country and appreciated
    all the “extras” that you arranged for us,
    meeting your farmer friend was a delight!
    Julie.
  • Your organisation is faultless, from the
    information you provided before we left, to the
    day to day (almost hour to hour), adjustment to
    the itinerary as weather and time indicated.
    What was the high-light for us? Impossible to
    choose one, there were so many!
    Jeremy and Valerie.
  • Jona, I just wanted to say what an excellent
    holiday I had, in fact it was one of the best
    holidays I have ever had and I am so glad that
    I went with your company. I have never been on
    holiday by myself before, but would be more
    than happy to do so on one of your tours, as
    they are so well organised and you feel so well
    looked after.
    Clare.
  • Thank you for planning and organising such a
    wonderful holiday, so much attention to detail
    meant everything went smoothly. Our group
    members are all talking about taking a summer
    tour to Iceland with you!
    Jane.
  • What a wonderful holiday we had, what a
    fantastic country, what wonderful friendship we
    encountered, what marvellous experiences your
    programme provided, Fanney and Siggi were
    brilliant, absolute stars, a credit to your
    company, their country and themselves. We very
    much appreciated your personal interest in our
    progress and care that we should be enjoying
    ourselves, we will be making enquiries of
    further trips with your company, Jona Tours.
    Jane and Margaret.

Some comments from 2016

  • What can I say? – except a huge thank you, yet again, for such a wonderful
    holiday in Iceland, I loved every minute. I always feel so relaxed on your tours as I
    know you look after us so well, ensuring we have comfortable places to stay away
    from the other tourists And taking us to places off the beaten track, I just loved
    visiting your farmer friend!
    See you soon on another fantastic Jóna Tour experience!
    Julie Carter.
  • So where to start?? I know! WOW! Iceland is truly a wonderful place, the hotels
    were first class, the balance of the tour was excellent, you were right when you
    said Fanney and Siggi would add something special to the tour, they are a great
    team, your vision of Jóna Tours rubs off on them and your relationship with them
    shines through, thank you so much for making our holiday so memorable!

  • Brian and I had the most wonderful holiday – it was a fantastic adventure, my
    particular favourite was the Lake Hotel at Egilsstaðir and for wonderful
    hospitality and location the Country hotel at Sveinbjarnargerði, the trip on the
    snow tractor was awesome (most fun we’ve had in years) and the thermal dips is
    something I shall always remember. Fanney was a brilliant guide, very
    informative, organised and helpful. Thanks again for a memorable trip-don’t
    change anything-you are doing it all so well!
    Alison Dean.
  • Thank you for the lovely welcome home email, all part of your amazing service
    and care, we did indeed have the most marvellous trip and enjoyed every minute,
    Twill most certainly recommend the tour, it was so different and so well done – I
    feel very privileged.

  • I must thank you for another wonderful holiday, I don’t think I will ever tire of
    Iceland as there is always something new to see or do, thank you for giving us
    such a wonderful experience, I shall return yet again!
    Tricia Parsons.
  • Wonderful, amazing, incredible, fabulous, I don’t think I have ever used those
    words so often as I did on our recent holiday to Iceland, from Oli’s brilliant
    driving, to the wonderful scenery and places we visited. Highlights were the
    breathtaking ride up the mountain and the icebergs on the beach, and we saw the
    northern lights and the eclipse!
    H and P. Sills.
  • We did so much, saw so much, ate so much (what wonderful food) AND we saw
    the northern lights, they were dancing all over the sky! As I said the food was just
    brilliant. Thank you Jóna for your enthusiasm, we had a fabulous time, now
    boring our friends and family with our tales and photos, recommending your tours
    like mad!
    M and S Wilson.
  • The holiday exceeded all my hopes and expectations, Iceland is just such a
    beautiful country – scenery wild and wonderful. Experiences, and how you
    created that for us, the herring visit, the concert in the tank, your farmer friend a
    delightful gentleman, the wool factory visit, and Stella with her ‘way off the
    beaten track’ hotel, horses, cherry tree, thermal pools, and of course the majestic
    mountains, fjords, lava fields and basalt stacks. It was a sublime experience, the
    puffins, arctic terns and arctic fox cub, and of course your team!
