review 25 Jul 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

We enjoyed the whole trip but most of all we liked the archeology - it was easily accessible and everywhere.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Make a special trip to the Skerries Bistro and enjoy not just a wonderful meal but also a multi-chambered cairn in the car park. We had the personal services of an archeologist on a tour of the Tomb of the Otters for a small fee.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We tried to support local crafters and museums.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

An excellent vacation which was quite an adventure.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Day trip to Papa Westray

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

If you want a good restaurant you need to book before you leave home.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes. We went late in the season and people such as the Spiggie Hotel, the boat out to see whales etc would have been empty otherwise.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Excellent

review 25 Oct 2016

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Getting to travel around both Isles and seeing how beauiful they are and getting to fuss wild Shetland Ponies

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

For the time of year we went, which was mid October, make sure you have got warm, thermal clothing. If you are wanting to see the Puffins, Dolphins etc to go before September.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Absolutely, because some of the local areas rely on tourism, the local people are some welcoming and enjoy speaking with tourists. Also any donatins are ploughed stright into the local areas to help keep local tourist sights in a good condition and to preserve them.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

It was fantastic to see the contrast in both Isles and to see the nature, unspoilt beauty. The wealth of wildlife and to see them in a nature environment. The wealth of history and to see how the areas have evolved throughout the years. Also the possibilty of seeing the northern lights.
