While the bus ride from Inverness to John O'Groats was a bit long, we had some beautiful views along the way and our tour guides kept us entertained with plenty of historical information. We enjoyed the ferry across to the islands, the time in Kirkwall St. Magness Cathedral, Bishop's and Earl's Castles and, the main attractions of Skara Brae, the Ring of Brodgar with spectacular mounds of heather and the Standing Stones of Stenness.. A lot was packed into that one day.

This is a long day trip but well worth the time. The trip up the north east coast of Scotland is breathtaking. John O'Groats is a lovely little town where we waited for the ferry to the Orkney's There is a nice gift shop and a good little food stand to grab something to eat while waiting, and the food can be pre-ordered on the bus. The ferry ride was beautiful. Then you will stop at Kirkwall a very lovely town. St Magnus is well worth a visit. Skara Brea is fascinating and there is a lovely beach there as well. There are many beautiful thing to see. Too many to mention here. Time is limited because there are so many things to see and do, but as they tell you this is but a taste of the Orkney's its one of the best day trips that I have taken in Scotland. The Orkney Islands are really beautiful.

Orkney is amazing! This was a highlight of our 8 days in Scotland. The island is beautiful and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Skara Brae, Kirkwall, the stones. Our tour guide on the island, Alan, was simply the best. Great stories and he entertained us every step of the way. We had a traffic issue on the bus on the way up oil truck got stuck that blocked the road for over an hour but they managed to hold the ferry so our tour wasn't ruined. I cannot recommend this tour enough.

Quite splendid. Very helpful and entertaining crew, Scara Brae et al was wholly impressive, and the whole day was wonderful, especially as we had fine sunny weather. I'd happily do this trip again and have recommended it to others.

Absolutely wonderful, long tour day. The bus was comfortable, the ferry ride was bracing, and the bus driver on the island was both knowledgeable and a terrific, humorous story teller. We particularly enjoyed the World War 2 stories and artifacts, as well as the amazing prehistoric sites.

It was great and considering I was not well I can still say it was a suberb trip.
It was a long trip but we will be back. The most interesting trip I have ever had and we have traveled a lot including Canada and America. The commentery was first class.

Very nice tour. It would be helpful if the guide on the first segment of the trip would review the day's itinerary. As an example most people didn't understand that a second guide would meet us once we disembarked the ferry from John O' Groats. Otherwise this tour was very well run. The drivers were knowledgeable and very helpful.

Amazing! Orkney tour guide was great. The bus tour picked us up from the ferry dock and provided commentary throughout the whole tour. Ring of Brodgar and Skara Brae was awesome to see. So much history and places to see on these small islands.
Highly recommended

This was a remarkable trip - if only to get a taste of life in the Orkney Islands. We packed so much in to this one day tour from Inverness especially being able to visit Skara Brae and the Brodgar Ring and to see the beauty of these islands. We were very lucky as the day was bright and sunny so the crossing of the Pentland Firth was calm and beautiful - i would highly recommend this to anyone interested in seeing the Orkney Islands - the people were so friendly and kind - much enjoyed - Jill Kirby

I had a wonderful time on this tour. The guide was informative and funny. He was also an excellent driver. I only wish that we had slightly more time at the sites that we visited, even just 15 more minutes. But I understand that there are long distances to cover. Overall, the tour was good value for the money, informative, and entertaining.

The bus tour on Orkney, with tour guide Andy, was outstanding. He gave a detailed and clear history of each location and told lots of funny local stories as well. Our 7 year old daughter loved it as much as the parents and grandparents did !! Excellent value for money too

Enjoyed the trip,Scott our guide misinformed us about Penelope Keith having opened a tea room in Avoch,not sure where he got his info from.Plastic gloves should be worn when making coffees especially after handling money for our sandwiches. Bus driver with funny hat was excellent with info .

Great tour, very well run. I would have preferred skipping the Italian chapel and use the time to get out of the bus for quick pictures at the standing stones of stenness, but otherwise I think the itinerary was great.

We all enjoyed the Orkney day trip and felt it was well organised. We think that we got a good idea of the highlights of the Islands and found the driver/ guide to be very knowledgeable and interesting.
