    To book send us an e-mail giving date(s) you wish to go, and number in your party. When we confirm the date you have requested a deposit of £ 100 is required to secure the booking; this is normally non-refundable. The balance of cost of the trip must be paid several weeks before departure of the trip.
    If you are resident in the UK then transfers to our bank a/c are free and the easiest way to pay. If you live furth of the UK it is probably easiest to pay by PayPal; see note immediately below.

    Please note
    that we should receive the actual amounts mentioned, not less any commissions or charges. In the case of PayPal their charges come to usually a little over £ 4 for each £ 100 they transfer. So for a trip costing £ 530 we would normally:
  • invoice you for £ 104 initial payment, expecting to receive just under £ 100;
  • invoice you for £ 447 final payment, expecting to receive just under £ 430
    Force majeure - in a Scottish islands context, this usually means adverse winds (though road blockage by a jack-knifed artic is also possible, or - more remotely - landslip). Since improvements to the Gills Bay terminal we have not had to cancel or modify any Go-Orkney MegaTour in the last 11 years. In the event that we cannot get to Orkney for any reason we give you a tour of some of the many scores of prehistoric sites in Caithness and east Sutherland, and spectacular coastal scenery, returning to Inverness by 1830 hrs or so. We make a refund of £ 60 + ferry charges.
    We do suggest to prospective clients that they give a selection of dates. However many - probably most - of the clients for these trips come to Inverness for 2 nights only, evidently for the sole purpose of fitting Orkney into a tight schedule.
