Owner description: Peedie Orkney Tours offer a wide range of tours tailored specifically to your needs. Peedie Orkney Tours offer privately guided tours in our own spacious and comfortable vehicle, which can carry up to 6 passengers. I can also arrange tours for larger groups. I am available to act as a "hop-on" guide for anybody arriving to the islands in their own vehicle, or to any coach groups visiting the islands.

We found Diane by searching for a private tour guide to take my wife and I around for an afternoon during a very brief visit by our cruise ship. Miles better than a ship organised excursion.
Diane is well versed in Orkney matters and gave us a brief and very interesting tour in her comfortable vehicle (which would have taken 4 or 5 people). She is friendly, relaxed and easy to spend time with.
Importantly (for cruise ship passengers) she ensured we were back in comfortable time for our sailing.
As we did not know the Orkneys at all, she chose the route and destinations and what she showed us was perfect.
We would have no hestitation is recommending her.
Thank you Diane.

Diane was a wonderful guide, showing our family of five (including 3 children aged 8 and under) around Orkney. Diane selected wonderful sites did a great job of bringing them to life. She was also very flexible, taking her cues from the children and adjusting the itinerary to make sure that we all were engaged and having fun. We recommend her enthusiastically.

We spent a fabulous day with Diane in August. We had found Diane on the internet and worked out all of the details with her in advance. We wanted to see some of the main archeological sites, but we also wanted to drive the islands and really get a feel for the place. Diane was the perfect host. She picked us up at the boat and took us on a tour of the islands and then to a terrific locals pub with a great lunch menu. We then drove around the islands and really got a feel for the mist and the heather and the cows and the extraordinary scenery. I highly recommend Diane. She is terrific.

We found Diane's service through the Internet and made arrangements with her by e mail. From the outset she was friendly and efficient, established the places we wished to see and made further helpful suggestions. After these consultations she sent a timed itinerary as confirmation.
Diane met us from our cruise ship holding a clear notice and wearing a big smile. As agreed her husband was with her as co-guide and driver of the comfortable and spacious car (there were just two of us) on this occasion.
Both were friendly, helpful and informative and gave us a local perspective of life on the island.
There was attention to detail - working torches for neolithic tombs and wet wipes for dirtied hands and knees after crawling in and out and a helping hand for steep terrain! They booked advance tickets for Maeshowe and an enjoyable lunch at the beautifully located Standing stones hotel. Thank you for a memorable day Diane and Richard.

Four of us had the extreme pleasure of spending a day with Diane touring her wonderful homeland in the Orkney Islands. I found Diane on the internet prior to our trip, made contact with her, and she was waiting for us at the pier as planned. She is fun, knowledgable, and we would tour with her again on our next visit. We saw all of the island attractions that we requested without the ordeal of being on a bus. Her tour pricing is very reasonable. A private car tour is the way to go and I would recommend Diane and her company again and again. Thank you Diane.
