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.

Outstanding opportunity to see and experience many of the awesome historic sights in the Orkney Islands! Days were action-packed, but evening allowed plenty of time to relax, enjoy a good meal, and check out the pretty sea side town of Kirkwall. Our guide was knowledgeable, personable, and easy going which added to the fun of the tour. It was all that we hoped for!
Timeless! Guide was extremely knowledgeable and very entertaining. Sights were unbelievable and more than we hoped for#

This tour was just wonderful, nine of us on the mini van. Mark the guide was most knowledgeable and helpful. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to visit the Orkneys. We elected to stay at a hotel and it was good, very clean and wonderful food.
My wife and I really enjoyed this trip. Everything worked out well - the bus, hotel, sightseeing. We thought the driver was first class; nothing was too much trouble; he was cheerful, helpful, knowledgeable.
The guide from Highland Experience informed us that ours was the first trip they had conducted and we were thus "guinea pigs " for the tour. His joking persona sometimes conflicted with his sense of direction as the route was new to him. The sites visited were excellent and what we had wished to see. The addition of Broch of Gurness at my request (over view only - site not entered) and Dunnett Head and also Stromness at suggestion by others, were worthwhile and should always be included (weather permitting). Other stops left only a very short time at Culloden which was a disappointment to those returning to Edinburgh.
Great tour guide, Mark. Kirkwall hotel not good. My VISA card was hacked.
