Doing what: Orkney Islands Day Trip from Inverness
Excellent day out, the guides and drivers both up from Inverness, and on Orkney were fantastic. A long day, but well worth it!
We were really worried that the tour might be cancelled as it had been the day before due to stormy weather and the forecast for the Sunday was not good, however we woke up to glorious sunshine and total calm. The day lived up to all our expectations. Stuart, our guide was knowledgeable and his stories about the local history were humorous. I have already recommended this tour to numerous friends as it was the highlight of our two weeks stay in Scotland.
Excellent day out, made extra special by a full day of blue skies and sunshine showing of the Orkney landscape. Everything went to schedule made special with the ferry to start and finish with. On the island a polite and very helpful coach driver giving us a continuous fully informed commentary and just significant time at each venue to appreciate the key items. Highly recommended way of catching the main flavour of the Islands in a day.
A fabulous tour with excellent tour guides who were friendly and informative. All journey times went like clockwork and there was time to spend at each tour highlight including Skara Brae, Ring of Brodga, Kirkwall and the Italian Chapel near Scapa Flow. A thorougly interesting and enjoyable day trip from Inverness. Well worth a visit!

Doing what: Wildlife Cruise from John O'Groats
This is an excellent, value for money cruise.The crew seemed to know all about what birds were flying about and also the island. We would recommend this to all
A lovely day out. I now want to go back to Orkney for a longer trip to explore further.
Cant recommend the day trip from John O'Groats to Orkney enough. Well organised from getting on the boat until getting off again at the end of the day. A coach was waiting as we got off the ferry and we were very quickly on our way for a very busy day. Our coach driver come tour guide had lived on Orkney for many years and was a mine of information. His good humour and helpfulness helped make this a very special trip. We spent time in Stromness and Kirkwall as well as seeing sights such as Skara Brae the Italian Chapel Scapa Flow the Churchill Barriers and the Standing Stones. Thoroughly recommended.
We also saved money booking on the internet through Viator on the price at the Ferry terminal which was a bonus!!
Most excellent tour and guide (Stewart). Very knowledgable and there was plenty of time to see the sights as we drove along. Just the right amount of time at each of the areas of interest. Orkney is a beautiful island.
Truly remarkable and all worked according to plan. The weather was brilliant and the wide Orkney skies gave fantastic views. The coach driver gave excellent commentary and all the major island features were seen. One has to ask the question - what would have happened if the day had been windy and wet, with the boat not being allowed to sail from John O' Groats?
Everything you want/need to see in beautiful Orkney is included in this maxi day trip. Stuart, the driver, was funny, knowledgeable and friendly. The coach was comfortable and the pace of the trip well-timed, ending at the beautiful Italian Chapel. Tip: if you have English Heritage/National Trust cards take them with you as they cover one of the entrance fees.
Very informative tour guided by locals who know the area and love to tell others about it's history.
