We did the treasures of Orkney trip with Clive and really enjoyed it. He was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions about the sites. The day was very busy but we got to see all the highlights of Orkney and take pictures at every stop. Would definitely recommend!

As I was only visiting Orkney for one day and therefore wished to see as much as possible, I decided to take a tour with Wildabout Orkney. Rosemary was most helpful and kept in touch about the availability of the tour and which sites would not be open (due to Covid). Wildabout Orkney made the reservations for the ferry and Clive met me when the ferry docked at Stromness. The full day's itinerary was well planned and, although there was much to see and information to digest, I did not feel rushed in any way and the day proceeded at a leisurely pace. Clive was certainly very knowledgeable and dispensed facts about the prehistoric sites with a gusto which brought the scene before me to life. His knowledge too of renewables on the island and general aspects of island life was immense and no questions were left unanswered. Thanks for an inspiring day, Clive

We took the 11 day Orkney/Shetland experience with our friends and found it packed with fun and adventure. Everything ran smoothly and as per Clive’s info pack. The local guides were also excellent. We came away with a good sense of the place and it’s people. Thanks Clive! Highly recommended.

Perfect tour to see all of the great highlights that the area has to offer! Knowledgeable tour guide with lots of information. We took the Northlink Ferry from Stromness and that was a wonderful trip in itself. Booking with this tour company, you receive tickets to go to the Magnus lounge for special treats and drinks. We were doing a road trip throughout Scotland and I decided to leave the car in the car park and enjoy this tour without the hassle of driving. It included all of our tickets as everything was included in the tour. After pricing it out, it was a much better deal to pay for the tour than to drive yourself around Orkney...and SO much more enjoyable. Make sure you go on a day that the cruise ship isn't there. We lucked out!

We booked a trip to Orkney & Shetland as a package through Wildabout Orkney. From our first enquiry until we boarded the ferry on our way home the service, information & organisation was first rate. The itinerary was a full one. Clive & James our island guides were very knowledgeable. We saw Tombs, Neolithic sites, Iron Age sites, Standing Stones, Wildlife & film sets. All in all a packed programme that we would have struggled to match travelling independently. It made a memorable holiday that we will treasure. I would have no hesitation recommending this holiday to friends, & have already done so.
