Great time. Sail and bus excellent. Driver fantastic! Knew everything, so interesting. Thank you, will recommend this.
A great day tour! Wonderful scenery and a terrific explanation given by a very friendly and humorous guide!
Excellent guide [Stuart] was well informed of the history of the islands, and had an A+ personality to go with it. A long day that just flew. Highly recommended.
The best day trip in years. Not expensive, short ferry trip, excellent coach, even better driver guide - very knowledgeable, safe and amusing - good itinerary - right number of stops, overall an outstanding day (helped by good weather).
Excellant Trip we had a super driver who explained everything about the Island and a super personality.
This was an amazing way to see the Orkney Main Island in a short amount of time. I loved the newpaper that came with the tour. The guide was amazing and witty. I would do this trip again.
Thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Orkney. Stewart, our driver and tour guide, was a fantastic source of background information to the various sights. He kept us entertained and was able to answer any questions we had. A must do trip when you visit the North of Scotland!
John O'Groats was easy to find and the little port had all the facilities we needed. The boat crossing was an experience in itself and the only thing I thought it missed was perhaps some occasional commentary about what was around the boat. John the coach driver was excellent and gave a very informative and amusing commentary.
We had a wonderful day in the Orkney Islands. Our tour guide, Stuart, was amazing. Although the weather started off rainy it turned into a beautiful day. The scenery and all the history were amazing.
This was an awesome tour! The driver/guide was excellent, spoke great English and was very knowledgeable. We saw everything we wanted to and just had a great time!
The coach driver is to be complimented on his excellent local knowledge and communication skills.
Great one day tour. Everything went smoothly from the time we arrived at the Ferry Counter at John O'Groats, the crossing across the Pentland Firth, onto the coach the tour itself and the return journey. Clare did a great job as a tour guide and I would recommend this trip if you only have 1 day and want to optimise your visit to Orkney.
Our trip to the Orkney Islands was great made even more so by an excellent guide named Stuart - we believe it was the best money we spent in the U.K. and couldn't speak more highly of it. The only fault we could find with this trip was a huge dog taking up one seat on the bus (it smelt).
A wonderful day out - Orkney is a fantastic place, loved everything we saw. Thank you for one of the highlights of our honeymoon!
