Kind words from our guests

Dear David,

This is just to thank you once again for the marvelous tour you managed to put together for my group last week.

We very much enjoyed your company and learned so much about life in Orkney thanks to your extraordinary knowledge.

Our historic experience of more than 5000 years ended on Sunday afternoon at the contemporary Folk concert at Kirkwall School, which was most enjoyable also.

Thanks again David for your thoughtfulness.  We and our fellow travelers very much enjoyed spending the day with you

For some time I have wanted to visit Orkney and have recently enjoyed five days based in Kirkwall. I am single older traveller with some health issues and was concerned that it may be difficult to get around without a car. I was fortunate to be in touch with David of Orkney Tailor-made tours. David helped me to devise a 5 day itinerary which took in Mainland, Hoy, Shapinsay, Burray and South Ronaldsay.

Orkney punches well above its weight- there is so much to see, so much to learn about, from world beating Neolithic sites through to World Wars 1 and 2. I could never have seen as much as I did if I had not had David’s pleasant, very well informed  assistance. Nothing was too much trouble.

What can I say about the overall experience? The history, the gentle beautiful scenery, the unexpected millions of daffodils lining the roadsides all over Mainland, the quality of the light, the quietness, the ever present backdrop of water and the friendliness of everyone I met made it a visit I shall never forget. It would be invidious to pick out any one outstanding thing as nothing failed to impress.

So thank you to David and Margaret for putting the icing on such a rich cake.
