We are the only Orkney tour company to be run by archaeologists, who live and work in Orkney all year round and have in depth understanding of Orkney’s archaeology, cultural traditions and history – as well as knowing all the best places to see seals!
Our tour leaders have worked on many of the major excavation projects in Orkney, and they are also accredited Orkney Guides, holding the Green Badge awarded by the Scottish Tourist Guides Association. This makes our holidays unique –every other tour operator offering specialist archaeology holidays to Orkney bring a tour leader with them, someone who does not live in Orkney and has no local knowledge.
We specialise in all-inclusive small group Orkney holidays - we are fully booked for our 2013 group holidays but we may have occasionally have late availability due to cancellations so please contact us if you would like to be added to our waiting list.
We are now accepting bookings for 2014 and currently have availability on all of our 2014 holidays - download our 2014 brochure for details. Please don't leave it too late to book since when we say 'small group' we really mean it - our maximum group size is just eight guests and we are usually pretty much fully booked for the forthcoming summer season by the end of the previous year.
For early and later season breaks, our private archaeology tours are ideal. Why not try our popular 4-night, 3-day Orkney Insights tour, or our 6-night, 5-day Orkney Experience tour?
If you are on a short visit we can also offer private day tours
