We had a 4 hour minibus tour with Grant Redfern, a very good local guide. We joined a group of two couples who’d booked independently and had a great tour. We visited a Croft Museum and the lighthouse at the southern tip of the main island. Grant even detoured to introduce my wife to some Shetland ponies - at the home of Grant’s sister. We learned a lot about the Shetlands and took in a number of beautiful views. Well worth the time!

This was an amazing tour in Grant's minivan, with five other guests. We toured the town of Lerwick and saw filming locations for the television series, Shetland, then moved out into the countryside where we toured a croft house, gazed at seabirds and seals, saw Shetland ponies, visited a lighthouse, and saw an incredible archaeological site. We stopped for coffee along the way, and had lunch at a hotel where we chatted nonstop, all with Grant as our delightful host. It is a day I will never forget!

Did both a North and South Mainland tour with Grant and both were spectacular! I booked a trip to Shetland on a bit of a whim and wasnt sure if I'd find any tours still running so late in September, but Grant replied to my inquiry very quickly! I've only gone through some of the south tour photos, but I have attached some of the beautiful places you will see. Grant's tour of Jarlshof and seeing Eshaness were the highlights of my trip. Shetland is just stunning and touring with a local guide who has an obvious love for his home was wonderful. Would recommend for anyone heading to Shetland and I can't wait to come back and see more!

Grant's a great guide, very accommodating, prompt, and a top bloke. We did a tour of the South of Shetland, and his local knowledge and connections were well worth the cost of the tour. We had a nearly full van on the day, but this didn't detract from the experience at all, we got to see a lot of Shetland, and sites we never would have stopped by (much less appreciated).

I found Grant Redfern and Shetland Minibus Tours through TripAdvisor and we had a great time this morning. I sent Grant an email inquiry for a 4.5 hour visit aboard the Star Breeze. He responded promptly did reported that he had two couples already booked for a tour of the southern part of the Mainland Island. He was waiting as promised at the dock. He drove us all around the southern part of the island, pointed out and explained all the important sites, and was a wealth of information. Grant is a local who has a deep knowledge of the Shetlands. He’s personable and it is clear that he loves what he’s doing. You won’t go wrong if you choose this company.
