Tour Reviews

Wonderful guide and group to travel with. We had a good bit of time at each site. Accommodation at B and B were very nice. I'm ready to go back!!

(Kitty D – August 2017)


This three-day trip was everything described and was a wonderful experience. The guide was knowledgeable and had a terrific sense of humor. I'd recommend this trip to anyone else who is considering a visit to the Orkney Islands.
