Gordon at GoOrkney is an amazing guide. He is very kind and he was very knowledgeable about the area and it's history. We spent a whole day with him and we all agree that we would never have seen as much of the island or learned as much if we had chosen a group tour or went out on our own. We highly recommend Gordon at GoOrkney.

This was an 80th Birthday trip for my Mum. We had fantastic email correspondence with Go Orkney from the moment I contacted them. Insightfully understanding and thoughtful, everything that we might need and lots of ideas of how to structure our two days, I cannot recommend Gordon Deans highly enough. We originally booked for a two day tour of the Islands but Gordon was so brilliant and available we had a third day together, there is so much to see and Gordon is so knowledgeable about everything. From the Archaeology, History of the Islands to the Creative Trail, where to eat, which art galleries to visit and secret beaches to hide away, watch birds and collect shells. It was a perfect few days. We were very sad to leave but we shall return as there is more to see.

Hi Madeleine and thank you for your thoughtful words and wonderful review and for the opportunity and privilege in helping to make your Mum's 80th Birthday trip so special. I'm delighted that you both enjoyed your experience with GoOrkney and that we were able to extend this into a third day. As you will have realised, here in Orkney we are really spoilt for choice when it comes to our depth and breadth of history, creativity and natural beauty and I very much look forward to catching up with you again when you return. To be continued....... Cheers. Gordon

My cousins and I spent two full days exploring Orkney’s history and natural beauty as well as our family history. Gordon”s knowledge of the islands as well as his personal connections with people living there resulted in the experience of a lifetime as I discovered family information and the context for their lives. Gordon became a friend and our time with him was two days spent with a knowledgeable and flexible friend who wanted to meet our interests while showing us a great time. He also had suggestions for how we might spend our free day in Kirkwall and helped us make dinner reservations. I can’t say enough good things about this experience including Gordon’s knowledge and his warm way of interacting. Thanks

Thank you Julie for your kind words and excellent review. The feeling was mutual. It is always a pleasure to share Orkney's amazing treasures and the added benefit of helping you to connect some of the dots in relation to your ancestry and connection to Orkney was such a privilege. I hope you all find the time to return and that we get a chance to meet again. Cheers.Gordon

Really great tour, Gordon had planned an amazing day, turned up early, knew all the history as he is from the island, and took us to all the major sites and some beauty spots. He had booked everything ready, at times when cafes and ancient sites had no slots left. The car was spotless and he had thought of everything you may have needed..water, raincoats and binos. Good comms throughout, highly recommended.
