Hartstikke leuke trip waarbij je veel ziet, veel eigen tijd hebt en de tijd in de bus op een geweldige manier aan elkaar wordt gepraat door chauffeur Steward! Fantastische verhalen en anekdotes. Met humor als het kan, en serieus als het moet. Gewoon gaan!

Leuke chauffeur die veel kon vertellen over het eiland.
Kirkwall was een leuk stadje om te stoppen. Stromness vonden wij geen toegevoegde waarde hebben.

Chauffeur en gids Stuart was voor deze dag een cadeautje. Hij wist heel veel te vertellen en als 'eilander van buitenaf' wist hij zijn betrokkenheid goed te relativeren. De boottocht naar de Orkney's was door het stromachtige weer echter bepaald geen pretje. Toch is een dagje Orkney's sterk aan te raden.

This was an amazing trip. The bus driver was humerous and informative and we saw a lot in one day. I would highly recommend this trip,

The most amazing trip around Orkney. Great commentary from Stuart our driver and the scenery, archaeological sites and overall experience exceeded expectations. I recommend doing research on Orkney history before going as it will only enhance your tour although Stuarts explanation was brilliant. As a travel agent i highly recommend this trip

Die Tagestour war wirklich interessant. Stewart, der Fahrer war sehr sympatisch und humorvoll und man hat ihn gut verstanden! In Kirkwall war der Aufenthalt etwas zu lang, ansonsten war alles super!

Extremely convenient way to get a taste of the Orkneys from mainland Scotland and see the key Neolithic sights. Just under half the time is free time in the two major urban centres.

This day tour, starting at the harbour at John O'Groats, is a brilliant way to get the feel, the history and the culture of the Orkney Islands.
It starts with a 45minute ferry journey across the Pentland Firth on a small, passenger only, ship to Burwick on the Island of South Ronaldsay where the ferry is met by the coach and guide/driver for the day tour. We found our guide very informative, entertaining and friendly.
The tour introduced us to the highlights of the Orkney Islands, from the neolithic monuments and sites, the ring of Brodgar, the stones of Stenness dating back at least 5000 years and the prehistoric village of Skara Brae, to the towns of Kirkwall and Stromness where there is some time to explore on ones own, to the second world war Churchill barriers protecting the naval natural harbour of Skarpa Flow and the beautiful Italian Chapel built by Italian prisoners-of-war.
It is a very full day with a total time of nearly twelve hours. We would highly recommend it. We were very lucky in that the weather on the day we took the tour was beautiful with clear blue sky. This meant that we could really appreciate the views and countryside of Orkney as we travelled around. The ferry crossing was also calm. I suspect that in poor weather, the crossing of the Pentland Firth could be very rough and maybe unpleasant.
Note that the price of the Maxi Day tour does not include entry to the Skara Brae site run by Historic Scotland or the Italian Chapel. This two sites are essential places to visit and it would be nice if the Maxi Day Tour company did a deal to include these in the tour price.

A good day out if you want to try to see the sights in one day. It is informative and well run. Our driver Stewart was excellent at keeping us entertained! The days itinerary is available when you get on the bus. Book through Viator for a 10 discount!

Orkney Island was wonderful and was made even better by the beautiful weather. The Icing on the cake was the commentary of the bus driver Stewart, he was very entertaining and informative and regaled us with humorous anecdotes. A very enjoyable day and would highly recommend the tour to others
