What people are saying about Orkney

Best money I've spent in a very long time. From stepping onto the ferry to returning, it was a great experience. Very comfortable tour bus and the places we went to was very interesting and with the driver's knowledge explaining the area it made it even better. Driving round myself I would have missed all the places and never knew anything about them, so well worth it ,even with the drivers (Darren) corny jokes made the trip an experience not to be missed

It was a really nice and cheap option to see the islands off of the mainland of Scotland. The speed of the boat was really nice so you could see a lot and had a lot of time to see it. You have a great chance of seeing seals, sheep on the islands, and puffins. I think it was definitely worth it!

The tour guide was amazing…. Really funny with wealth of information and stopped with enough time at various locations with tips & tricks of visiting various areas….Orkney is beautiful Thank you

Mike (guide and driver) was very knowledgable and entertaining. Covered a lot in a short tour.

Great day at the Orkney and seeing all the highlights
