Sarah McBurney is a superb guide for a thorough visit to the Shetlands. Her knowledge of the history, archeology and geology of the Shetland Islands are unsurpassed. She is expensive and worth every penny!

I was fortunate to have Sarah show me Shetland for 3 days. North and South Mainland and Unst. Everything was organised to the last inch. Sarah is a knowledgeable and entertaining guide and I enjoyed everything about the tours. Highly recommend See Shetland tours.
