JP Orkney crafted a most wonderful tour for three friends and me. The owner provided insight, information, and an all round delightful experience. We still are talking about the great lunch and fun time.

I did a tour with Paul on Friday 16th June with three other ladies. I wasn’t feeling well and Paul went out of his way to make me feel more comfortable. Thank you Paul. When I did get to eat the packed lunch he provided, it was delicious.

We are a luxury our operator and booked a 2-day tour of Orkney with JP Orkney Tours on behalf of our clients. They were responsive and friendly from the outset and willing to be flexible and work with us to meet our clients' needs and interest. The clients had a wonderful time touring with Paul - we would highly recommend JP Orkney Tours!

You must book with JP Orkney tours. They are so amazing. You get a personal experience, great hospitality, and an up close look at Kirkwall. We loved every minute and all the details the company provides. Paul is a great guide. He is sincere, knowledgeable, and helps you make the most of your visit. He took us to many Neolithic sites, old castle ruins, we saw a Viking village, St Magnus cathedral and this list goes on. If you can , I highly recommend their picnic lunch. Paul and his wife , Jane, have a catering business and make homemade jams and chutney. ( delicious and I highly recommend getting some . About 3-5 pounds each) They make you a beautiful lunch and you enjoy it in a picture perfect place. In our case, we sat overlooking the sea as weather was in our favor. Of all the tours we have been on, we all (group of 6) rank this as number one. I highly recommend them and. I strongly suggest booking early as you don’t want to miss out.

We visited Orkney in May of 2023 and were lucky enough to enjoy a delicious lunch featuring wonderful products from JP Orkney. We purchased some of the Rhubarb Chutney and the different types of tablet to bring back home to Australia. The products were fresh and tasty. The chutney is brilliant with lovely bread and cold meats or with a cheese board. The home made Scottish tablet was so good.. I really loved the Cardamom flavoured one! It’s great to be able to enjoy memories of our fabulous trip as we are back home and I would happily purchase your products again! Cheers!!

A truly enjoyable and informative day with JP Orkney Tours. Paul is friendly and knowledgeable on the amazing history and life on Orkney, both historical and current. We got to visit the Standing Stones of Stenness, Skara Brae, Ring of Brodgar, Brough of Birsay and back to St Magnus Cathedral in Kirkwall. The Neolithic, Pictish and Viking history there is amazing. We also enjoyed a lovely picnic, prepared by Jane sitting on Skaill Beach. All in all a perfect day, he even arranged good weather for the day. His enthusiasm and matched humour made the day go well. Thanks Paul and Jane. You come highly recommended. Peter & Sue Quirk
