What our guests say...
Jean and I just wanted to let you and Frank know that we had a fantastic time on our outing on Thursday. The Neolithic and iron age sites we visited were really interesting. All were great, but we were especially impressed by Broch Gurness. And, the weather was just perfect! We are very grateful for the hard work you put into your tours and feel fortunate to have found you. Jean and Chris - USA- July 2022
Just a very quick email to say how much we enjoyed our day in Orkney and how very happy with the trip and help provided by Frank - we all felt it was above and beyond our expectations. Frank met us direct from the ship, took us to the places we expected and some we didn't encouraged us to take our time and was, quite simply, an excellent guide. Thank you both, and we'd have no hesitation recommending you to others or coming back to you next time we visit Orkney, one day really wasn't anywhere near enough time. Dawn and Mike- UK- July 2022
