About
Orkney Trike Tours offers exclusive, exciting and completely unique way of exploring the beautiful islands of Orkney. Don’t be just a tourist in a car or a coach, stand out from the crowd and arrive in style. We promise a bit more than just a tour - we give you the “journey” across Orkney. Off course we understand that riding a trike is not for everyone so we have an additional car which can take 4 people around Orkney. Sometimes we use both vehicles so that up to six people can tour Orkney taking turns to ride on a trike. Additionally we now offer escorted motorcycle tours where you use your own motorcycle. Orkney Trike Tours put You at the centre of all we do. Your time here is precious so we take the strain for you. We will pick up, from your Hotel, cruise ship or Ferry and drop you back.off there, or anywhere else you choose. Tell us what you would like to see and do and we will organise the best tour for you whilst you are here on Orkney.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a wonderful half day tour with John on his trike visiting various sites on Mainland Orkney. John is an excellent host, very knowledgeable about Orkney, warm and entertaining and we can't recommend him highly enough. We had a renewal of our wedding vows for our 20th anniversary which John accommodated beautifully for us. Such a fun way to see Orkney, very very good!

Obviously the Trike is the star but so is the service John our guide gave on our Neolithic sites trip on the Orkneys. His knowledge of the islands history is excellent, giving us in-depth info at the sites. All care was given to make sure we were safe and comfortable on his Trike, especially as the weather was mixed.
Yes we definitely recommend you consider using Orkney Trike Tours for your visit to the Islands.

If you want the most unique way to visit Orkney, then this is the ONLY way! John is an amazing guide, and his Trike is the best way to see this amazing island. John met us at the cruise terminal right on time, got us all settled and ready before setting off. John took us through Kirkwall and the surrounding countryside for an awesome two hour tour, and everywhere we went the locals knew John and would wave a hi. After the tour was over, John took our two teenage boys on their own tour which was simular but different to our tour. During their tour, it started to rain and John was prepared with rain gear in the Trike's trunk. Would highly recommend this tour - it was an absolute blast!

John has a great personality and loves to show off his island. He knows all sorts of history and local info. The view from the back of the trike is like no other - thrilling but safe and comfortable. He gladly tailored the tour to the time we had available and the specific places we were interested in. A unique experience worth planning.

What a brilliant experience on the trike tour. John was a great 'host' and ensured we were enjoying it. People were waving and smiling when they saw the trike. Would recommend this to anyone

Amazing experience. The trike was our wedding car! John arrived early and had decorated the trike in ribbons. He made sure we were warm and kitted out, even wiping the seat when the rain came, bless. He gave us a little tour through ear pieces in the helmet, as we were travelling along. It wasnt bumpy or uncomfortable. An amazing experience and you couldnt ask for a nicer person.

John met my daughter and me from our cruise ship and we had a brilliant morning tour with him out to Scapa Flow which is where we'd particularly wanted to go. Unfortunately it rained so heavily throughout our trip that we got a bit wet even under the waterproof gear John provided but that didn't really matter because our stops were so interesting. He was a knowledgeable, friendly guide and I would recommend his trike tour as a fun way to see Orkney. We were very pleased we did it - even in rather dire weather conditions.

We had a great half day tour with John - which was fantastic. I'd highly recommend, especially at the start of a holiday as there were so many places, not in the guidebooks, that John took us to that we wanted to explore again. It was myself and daughter (12 years old) - we asked for a tour on vikings and local history. We both really enjoyed the places John took us, his knowledge and stories and especially the trike!

Arranging the tour and pick up/drop off was really flexible and easy. It was really a memorable experience. Thank you John.

This is a brilliant experience and was so much fun. The tour of the war sites was in itself worth the trip in itself with John proving an insightful and friendly tour of many visible sites as well as many that we would simply have driven past without his knowledge and expertise. For us the highlight is without doubt the nature of this tour and the once in a lifetime opportunity to do something like this on a trike with John. The weather as you would expect in October on Orkney was changeable but that just added even more to the day and to the memories which we will take with us. John provides warm and waterproof clothing so I would recommend doing this in all weathers.
