A Recent Review of this tour

We can't imagine a better way to explore Orkney then spending the with Simon. Simon was first rate. He was friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about Orkney. Simon knew how to avoid the crowds, was adaptable to our interests and scheduled lunch in a lovely brewery. We learned so much and thoroughly enjoyed our time on Orkney with Simon. We would highly recommend his tour.
