Excellent tour loved the hotel, bus was a little small for good viewing but given group size not unexpected.

Excellent day from start to finish. Nice to be met by your representatives who are a credit to your company and ensured all our needs were met. A great tour and a great lunch. Highlights without doubt was Elizabeth Norton. What a great and accessible guide. Certainly would be interested if she does any other tours for you.

A very good tour; well managed, providing insightful information about the past. I would recommend it to others.

Overall, this was a well organized and informative tour. It went off without a hitch, we stayed in very nice hotels, we hit ALL the sites and had incredible experiences at each one, and I can’t say enough about Val Turner, our guide. As one local Shetland resident said to us, “If Val doesn’t know the answer, then nobody knows the answer!” If you want an in-depth learning experience about Neolithic life in Northern Britain, look no further.

Really enjoyed the tour. Paul Bahn is both an excellent globally important scholar on the subject and a brilliant communicator. As a consequence we had a really inspiring tour. Sarah Robertson was an excellent tour manager and we had a really good driver. We loved being located in Oust. While some of our group did not think highly of the hotel facilities, we enjoyed the old fashioned nature of the place. Its location in was especially brilliant as my partner Loraine had lived in the village during her PhD research. We had the added bonus of participating in the Transhumance festival at the neighbouring village at the beginning of our final day.
