Enhance your Orkney experience with a qualified Orkney guide
To book a guide please either contact all our guides with your requirements by clicking the link button above, or contact the individual guide directly.
Each OTGA guide has their own pricing structure, terms and conditions and cancellation policy, which you should confirm with your guide when you book your tour. All tours offered by our qualified Orkney Guides are unique and tailored to your specific requirements, and as such tour prices are negotiated depending on the circumstances of each tour, and our members are self-employed and set their own rates.
The tour price will vary depending on the service offered, what is included (e.g. entry fees, lunch etc) the language required, whether you require a 'step-on' guide to join you in your own vehicle or if you require a driver-guide with their own vehicle.
The Scottish Tourist Guides Association (STGA) advises that in general the following rates would generally be applicable in Scotland to 2015 tours booked via their office:

This equates to a minimum of £280 or £420 per 8 hour day simply for transport between sites in a licenced vehicle)
