Welcome to Orkney Archaeology Tours

We are the only tour company in Orkney to be run by archaeologists, who live and work here 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!


We specialise in all-inclusive  holidays  limited to a maximum of eight guests, but unlike other tour operators we do NOT require a  minimum number of bookings before the holiday goes ahead, and we do not apply any surcharges  to our prices, so you can book ahead with confidence.  


Over half of the places on our 2017 holidays have already gone  - if you have no flexibility in your travel dates  please book now for 2017 to avoid disappointment.


We also have a wide choice of  2018 holiday dates we can add you to our 2017 waiting list if your preferred 2017 week is fully booked.


We  availability for our private all-inclusive tours & private day tours  outside of our main 2017 holiday season, so before the 29th of April 2017 and after the 16th September 2017


Our tour leaders have worked on many of Orkney's major excavation projects, and they are also qualified & registered STGA Orkney Tourist Guides. Our tours are friendly, fun and informative and Orkney is an amazing place to visit - come and see for yourself!


We include a visit to the Ness of Brodgar excavation as an extra in your tour if your visit coincides with the dig season
