Had a lot of fun on this walking tour! Laurie is very knowledgeable (we had a few Shetland locals along with us, and a lot of the info was new even to them). Lots of history about the city, plus interesting tidbits, local lore and stories. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting who wants to learn more!

Brilliant week night tour with Laurie who is so knowledgeable in what she does. Despite living in Shetland a long time I learnt so much about where we live. Fully enjoyable evening whilst also enjoying the simmer dim and fresh air. Would definitely recommend this activity whether you are a visitor or Shetland resident. Good value for money!

We hired Laurie for two tours of Shetland. She had planned the days so we could see as many sites as possible in the time available. But she was flexible to include our wishes. She has extensive knowledge and academic training of Shetland archaeology. She has a great sense of humor as we discovered when we contacted her by phone a few weeks before arriving in Shetland. I highly recommend contacting Laurie or any other guide by phone prior to arrival in Shetland. Laurie has a SUV with great visibility that she drives. It’s very comfortable for those touring. We highly recommend Laurie. Shetlandwithlaurie.com

I decided to on a walking tour in Lerwick with Laurie after having lived here for almost 10 years. It was excellent. I thought the place but Laurie showed me so many details I had no idea about. Local guide who is passionate about her job. Plenty information, always time for questions and an unrushed experience all way through. Highly recommend Laurie.

Laurie took us to the northern reaches of Mainland and was the perfect guide. She is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, friendly and funny. She’s a good driver, too! We had a totally delightful day in her company. I’m sure you will, too.
