A very well organised trip , in a comfortable coach and with a very well informed driver, passionate about his home island, who kept us passengers engaged with his facts, figures and explanations. We visited the key places expected with good time slots to get a flavour of the history and life of the island. The boat trip across can be a little rough, but our day it was perfect. Possible sighting of cetacea was not to be for us sadly.
This tour is good value, the bus driver/tour guide was very friendly, helpful and informative. The Orkney Islands have an interesting history, the Neolithic Villge was spectacular.
Great crossing on the ferry,then the bus trip took us around the islands with the driver being a very good driver as well as tour guide, all in all a very enjoyable day.
It was good the only disappointing bit was you could hardly hear the guy due to the amount of your children when sat inside so we missed parts of the history given
Great trip, coach driver really informative and friendly. Very organised and plenty of time at places of interest. Amazing views. Highly recommend.
