We have done many tours with your company. Garry's tour is the best we have had. Orkney came alive for us thanks to him. We saw every important site and his knowledge and love for Orkney came through splendidly. There are wonderful things to see and thanks to Garry, we loved Orkney! A true 5 star rating.

We had a great time with Garry while in Orkney! He was very easy to get along and joke with, and we were able to see more than we imagined in the time we were together. Both my husband and I agreed that our tour with Garry was well worth it.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Katie. I'm glad yourself and Jon had a great day. I really enjoyed my day too and it was a delight to meet you both and spend the day with you. Garry

Garry was extremely helpful in planning our one day stop in Orkney. We discussed via emails places to visit and he prepared a suggested itinerary. He picked us up promptly from the pier with a comfortable private van for the 10 of us. Garry was very knowledgeable and easy to listen to about each ancient cite and adjusted our tour stops to accommodate us and the crowds. We were able to see many amazing things including a rare citing of a puffin bird in it's nest! We definitely recommend using Garry!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sandra. I'm so glad you and the gang enjoyed your time in Orkney. It really was a lovely day and you got to see a puffin :)

Garry was the quintessential tour guide. He helped us plan our Orkney visit, preparing an agenda of sites to see for our review before our trip. Gary met us at the ferry and off we went for a day of great sites that went by in a flash. Garry has excellent local knowledge and provided entertaining stories throughout the day, seeing a wide variety of Orkney's finest sites. Our agenda was followed with flexibility and we never felt rushed. We've given Garry the highest rating for his tour guide service.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your very kind words and I am very glad that you enjoyed your day. I very much enjoyed my day with you and glad that you got so much out of it.
