We were quite specific on our requirements to experience the Islands involvement in both World Wars, specifically from a Royal Navy perspective. Gordon not only came up with an itinerary that fulfilled this objective, he completely surpassed it! Gordon's historical knowledge on the subject was simply outstanding and the memory of our brief day on the island will remain with me for some considerable time. So, if you are considering a trip to the Orkney's, take Gordon with you! You won't be disappointed !!

We took a tour of the principal sites on Mainland, Orkney at the end of October 2019. Gordon was an excellent guide. He was knowledgeable, engaging, affable, and very accommodating of a family traveling with a two year-old. He has our highest recommendation.

Gordon was outstanding right from the start, We saw everything we wanted to see in our own time and had enough time to get a "feel" for the place. Andrew the guide at Ness Battery was also very good and arranged by Gordon. I would highly recommend Gordon for any kind of tour you want to do - his local knowledge is great and nothing was too much trouble. I will certainly be back :)

Gordon was an excellent, informative and organised guide. Our day was tailored to our interests, with enough time for us to browse and explore sites - we never felt rushed - but still managed to see a lot and finish on time. We thoroughly enjoyed the day, the itinerary and the banter!

Gordon was informative in a measured way and tailored my trip to my tastes to the tee. He was also extremely obliging I.e.helpful to me on a day I was not 100%. Lovely comfortable SUV to ride in.
