“Great one-day option”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

We booked this tour as time only allowed one day on the Orkney. We had a fantastic day and our tour guide Neil (?) was excellent. He shared some fantastic stories that helped to create an image of the island and it's diverse history. This is a great tour for people who are interested in ancient or war history. My personal highlight was the Italian Chapel, I just wish we had less time at the shops and more time to admire this masterpiece.

We thought we would end the day with fish and chip take-away when we got off the ferry from the wee hut. Don't make the same mistake as us. The food was terrible, overpriced and the staff were rude. Luckily we spent the rest of the day sampling the fantastic food available on the Orkney.

“Great day trip to explore Orkney”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

If you are in this part of the world and have a day to spare then this trip is well worth it, so much packed into the day travelling around the sights of Orkney. Our guide was Stuart, who obviously has a great passion for the islands and was very informative and gave us plenty of time at the stops to make sure we got round them all and there was a few of them ! Excellent value.

“A Brilliant Tour of Orkney”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

We were over the moon to learn that we could take our dogs on this tour of Orkney since it would have been a real shame to have missed out especially visiting Skara Brae and viewing the remains of the fleet in Scapa Flow. The coach driver was very well informed, polite and friendly and the bus was spotlessly clean. All in all, an excellent day out and well worth the money.
