Went with the option from the tourist office: lovely old man drove us around, but the tour was like being shown around by your grandad. You can imagine... hilarious in hindsight, frustrating in the moment. Not many options for independent travel: most people went with the ship, then walking tours (the tourist information had lots of information for that), and then local taxis charged 50 quid an hour to take you (up to 6 people I believe) where ever you wanted to go. We paid 35 quid per person, and certainly got to see some places you couldn't see on a big tour bus. Read Less

We walked out of the port (shuttle bus to town centre was laid on however really not needed). Lerwick isn't the prettiest place and again... we should've gone on an excursion! The museum is amazing however!

Enjoyable sightseeing tour by coach. Well-narrated, with an opportunity to see some authentic Shetland ponies, and their very passionate and informative breeder.

We probably didn't see Lerwick at its best as it was a Sunday and very dull weather. Don't expect a lot of excitement from the town! An organised excursion is recommended (we did not take on ourselves).

We opted not to take a tour here but took the shuttle bus from the port to the center of town and walked back to the ship stopping along the way. It was Sunday, not much open, but the museum was excellent.
