Access to Tour Guiding in Orkney

The need for step-on guides on cruise ship tours has become apparent for the 2023 season, and this intensive 8-week training course seeks to address that issue. This course runs over 8 weekends between 1st April – 27th May. 

There will be a single introductory evening session to those who have signed up on Wednesday 29th March to introduce the course and explain the systems involved.  In-person tour guide training will be all day each Saturday 1st of April to 27 of May, with the exception of Saturday 8th April (Easter weekend).  Places are limited.
