Please note that Orkney Travel would only cancel your tour in exceptional circumstances (eg. Staff illness, vehicle breakdown) and will always do our best to find a suitable replacement.

If you wish to make any changes to your tour, please let us know at your earliest convenience. We will always do our best to accommodate. If we are unable to accommodate your change then you may cancel your tour subject to the standard cancellation policy.

Orkney Travel will always do our best to visit everywhere on your itinerary. However due to limited availability on some sites and site closures, we may not be abvle to visit everywhere listed. In the event that we are unable to visit a site, we will provide an alternative site to visit instead.

Many of the sites we visit are not very well maintained or have uneven surfaces. You visit these sites entirely at your own risk and Orkney Travel will not be liable.
