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. We still have a few places available for our 2017 holidays and we have availability on all our 2018 holidays
We can add you to our 2017 waiting list but would advise you to book your preferred 2018 dates first, then we will switch you to 2017 if a cancellation becomes available - otherwise you may also miss out in 2018. This is especially important now, since Orkney is about to feature in a major three-part BBC TV documentary called 'Operation Orkney' and we are anticipating an extremely high demand for our 2018 holiday places following broadcast.
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. We also visit other active digs if accessible during your holiday, including the Knowe of Swandro in Rousay
