  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
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.

    If your time on Orkney is short, this has got to be the best way to see the sites.
    Our drive/guide was Leslie. He is one of those people who, when you first meet them, you feel like you have somehow known them for a long time. Professional, kind, and knowledgeable, he made provided us with a memorable day. Hailing from Kirkwall, though a world traveler himself, he possesses an intimate knowledge of the area. The sites that he will show just cannot be missed, and provide some of the most beautiful and striking scenery in Scotland. Though you see a lot, you never have the feeling of being hurried. This tour, and Leslie, make for a wonderful day that is well worth the money.

    Excellent day with Dougie who was just so informative and upbeat. Pick up and drop off at the ferry so very convenient. Excellent and comfy van, perfect group tour size - highly recommend!

    We only went to Kirkwall for one day and it was an interesting visit. Everything is in walking distance and the Bishop's and Earl's Palace were great to explore, while the medieval Cathedral was fabulous. Quite unexpected in a small place like Kirkwall. Shops were lovely and enjoyable to visit. I regretted not having the time to spend in the Orkneys and experience more of the culture.

    Lovely day seeing the highlights of Orkney. Being in the presence of those stones at the Ring of Brodgar is hard to describe. Our guide Rachel is very knowledgeable about Orkney and I enjoyed her tour very much!

    Our guide Anna was knowledgeable, friendly and ever so accommodating to our interests and requests. Extra kudos to her for braving the elements with us as we encountered cold temperatures and high winds during our winter visit to the Orkneys. She even provided us with much appreciated warm drinks and chocolates. It was a great day exploring many of the wonders the Orkneys.

    Calum was a delightful young man who gave us the grand tour of Orkney! It was very much personalized and we got to know the area from someone who loves and reveres the history and culture of Orkney. He was not just a tour guide who spouted information from memory but someone who proudly told stories both historical as well as personal to give us a wonderful full flavor of the place. After our four hour tour we felt we really got to know Orkney as much as we can in those short four hours! We highly recommend Calum!

    Our tour guide, Dougie, was very knowledgeable and personable. We did the private classic tour (5 hours or so) and toured many of the sites in and around Kirkwall, including standing stone circles, Skara Brae, Scapa Flow, the Italian Chapel, and a church in downtown Kirkwall. The guide picked us up at our hotel and dropped us at the airport. It was a day well spent.

    Our tour guide Chris was extremely informative, interesting, friendly, engaging, very well organised and went well over the call of duty, taking us to fascinating places in addition to the formal itinerary. Consequently, the group gelled extremely well and the very best was made of the experience. Orkney is superb with a collection of neolithic sties that is unmatchable and a must have experience for anyone with a sense of the importance of the past. Top marks for all aspects and an excellent experience!

    If you are looking for a day out in Orkney look no further. Paul was very knowledgeable and made our day one to remember. He gave us information on local life and answered the many questions that our inquisitive kids had. He made us feel comfortable and adjusted itinerary and timings according to our needs - truly an enjoyable day.

    Kev, our bus/driver guide, was so informative and funny. The small group size, 16 participants in the mini bus, made for a comfortable journey. We were given enough time at each site to explore and take photos without feeling rushed. We had booked our own accomodations so can't comment on that service offered by Rabbie's. On our way to and from Inverness, where the tour started, we passed and saw every sites. I would recomend this tour if you wish to spend a few days in Orkney.
