We had only one day to visit Orkney and we hired a car and driver to make the most of the sights we were interested in seeing. Sue from Explore Orkney Tours met us at the ferry and drove us around the island, making stops at the Italian Chapel, St. Magnus Cathedral and a little walk around Kirkwall, Standing Stones... 更多
We took this tour November 22, 2016. Our guide was very knowledgeable, very personable, down to earth and genuine! We learned so much and a had a great time. We would definitely recommend this tour to a friend. The forecast for Orkney in November is off-putting, but off season might be the best time to get into the sites. As... 更多
I spent my two days in Orkney with Explore Orkney tours, and I could not have asked for a better experience. It was the end of the season, and I was the only person on the tours both days, but the tours were still run just for me. Orkney is a beautiful, magical place, but the thing that will stay... 更多
We spent a magical day near Stomness on Orkney with Trevor as our guide. We learned an incredible amount that day about the early peoples who inhabited that area. Trevor was an absolute gem of a guide. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Explore Orkney requires 100% prepayment of the tour cost. The Explore Orkney website indicates that 50% of the tour cost will be refunded if a cruise ship does not call at Orkney. In August 2016 the Caribbean Princess did not call at Orkney due to weather. More than 24 hours in advance, we advised Explore Orkney we would not be... 更多
Explore Orkney would like to apologize for the delay in processing this persons refund. However this review is not truthful... 更多
Wonderful experience! Great to have a small tour and avoid the timing and locations of the larger groups. Family-run business. Our guide, Trevor, was knowledgeable and personable and we enjoyed our day tour. Growing up in the community, he brought a good perspective on life in the islands. Highly recommend.
We would highly recommend contacting this tour company rather than a ship's agent as you will get to see things the ships agents can not because of bus size. They are very friendly and knowledgeable about the Neolithic and Iron Age history of the area and can weave a story of Orkney's Nordic heritage that was truly eye opening for... 更多
We recently stopped in Orkney Islands on our cruise ship and they did not offer the shore excursion we wanted. We contacted Explore Orkney Tours to see if they could meet us off the cruise ship (email@example.com) and take us to the location we wanted to visit. While organising this we discovered that we could not buy entrance tickets on... 更多
Tour included visits to the Italian Chapel, Churchill Barriers, Tomb of the Eagles and Tomb of the Otters. All admissions and lunch were included which made it excellent value for money, particularly as we were the only ones on this tour on this particular day. Our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Would thoroughly recommend this company to anybody.
We were delighted (and fortunate) to have a personal tour with Kevin while visiting Orkney Islands while on our cruise. His professionalism and knowledge were quite evident in his guidance throughout the day as well as his love for the island he calls home. He became an integral part of our lasting experience of Kirkwall and of our memories. Thank... 更多
