We are the only holiday company in Orkney to be run by archaeologists. All of our tours are personally led by either Dr Caz Mamwell BSc MA PhD FSA Scot or by Dr Dave Lawrence BSc MSc PhD FSA Scot, who both live in Orkney all year round and have an in depth understanding of Orkney’s archaeology, cultural traditions and history – as well as knowing all the best places to see seals!
We offer all-inclusive holidays with no more than eight participants in the main season from May to mid-September, with private tours outside these dates for individuals, couples or friends up to a maximum of eight people who are travelling together.
Our 2022 holidays are fully booked but we do have availability on our 2023 holidays. We can add you to our 2022 cancellation list on request, if you would like to book a 2023 holiday we would be happy to switch your booking to 2022 if a suitable vacancy arises.
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. Our tour leaders have worked on many of Orkney's major excavation projects, and they are also qualified and 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!
