224 Kirkwall Cruise Reviews

One of my favorite stops was the Orkney Islands. The standard tour was to the Ring of Brodgar and having an archaeologist as a guide was great. We also took the bus into the town of Kirkwall and had fun exploring the town and shops.

We enjoyed the highlights of historic Orkeny tour. Our guide, an archeologist, took us to see the Ring of Brodgar. We were fascinated by these neolithic standing stones and all the history of the ancient Vikings in the British Isles.

We went on the Skara Brae and Brodgar excursion which was fascinating as Skara Brae had been on my bucket list. We also had a bit of a tour of the main island, including Scapa Flow. There were very long queues for the tenders on our return, but we toured the port and went to the hotel opposite to drink local whiskeys and an Irish coffee until the queues died down. Great day and the weather was good. Read Less

Could have spent less time here or skipped entirely. Just a small town to walk around. We saw the fort which was prob the coolest thing.

Did not join tour. The city is easy to go around on our own. Public transportation is available to the key places.

I'd previously visited the Neolithic Orkney sites which is a must. I wandered around town, in and out of the shops. Visited the magnificent Cathedral, Bishop and Earls Palace, the Museum. The Tourist Info Centre had free wifi. I sat down in the adjacent bus station and did my postcards and got stamps across the road from the PO. The day just went. Read Less

This was our 2nd Princess Tour - West Mainland Sightseeing and it was OK but it reminded us why we choose private tours. The tour guide was very nice but it was her first day on the job and she neglected to tell the bus driver to even slow down for the Standing Stones of Stenness. We just rode right past it with not photo stop. We were able to tour the Ring of Brodgar and see a bit of Kirkwall as we were whizzing by the sights. For us, Guernsey and Kirkwall were just bonus days so that was Ok. Private tours at Kirkwall were limited and booked up quickly. Plan far ahead if you want a private tour in Kirkwall. Read Less
