Magical Orkneys

I joined this Rabbies tour because I wanted to see the Neolithic sites on Orkney, I was not disappointed. In fact the trip wildly exceeded my expectations. Skara Brae and the Ring of Brodgar were magical, and our guide, not an expert but well read and full of tales, was careful to take us to innumerable sites of interest, historical, geological and cultural, and was quick to point out things of interest, such as wildlife and traditional crafts, in passing. The Albert Hotel in Kirkwall was a good base, with staff who were friendly and helpful

The trip was well done and included everything as advertised. Kevin was the driver and he did an excellent job of modifying the schedule and sites to accommodate the rain. Helped us find a place to eat dinner in Orkney.
