Private all-inclusive archaeology holidays & day tours

2021 Private tour update: Please see below for our updated availability for summer 2021 for private tours in line with current social distancing guidelines.


From mid September until the end of April (i.e. outside of our main holiday season) we offer completely private archaeology holidays ideal for an early or later season break. These are all-inclusive tours, with accommodation at a good local hotel, breakfast and à la carte dinner at your hotel, lunch at a suitable pub or tearoom whilst on tour, all entry fees, all ferry fares for island day trips as appropriate,  and the services of your personal archaeologist driver-guide included in the price. 


Although these tours are private, we do offer discounts for larger groups, so bring your family and friends! Our 4-night, 3-day 'Orkney Insights' archaeology tour shows you the best of the Orkney Mainland, and the linked South Isles including the Churchill Barriers. Our 6-night, 5-day 'Orkney Experience' archaeology tour includes full day excursions to the neighbouring islands of Rousay and Hoy. If you have limited time in Orkney or would like to arrange your own accommodation we can also offer private day tours.


We can arrange tours of any length and we can customise your itinerary to your exact requirements but please note that our private tours are only available outside of our main small group holiday season. Simply contact us and let us arrange your perfect break - whatever your interests. More details and outline itineraries may be found in our brochure, which may be downloaded below.
