Welcome to See Orkney Tours. We are a small family tour company. We offer bespoke tours to suit your needs and wishes, taking you to sites of your choice.
See Orkney is a small family buisness, the guides are native Orcadians Lorna and her daughter Carrie, who are both STGA Green Badge qualified. Lorna has varied interests in Orkney including photography, golf and family history. Carrie enjoys playing the Violin (Fiddle) and searching for treasure on our beautiful shorelines. Both are of course interested in all things Orcadian.
