Kate was a wonderful guide! - very accommodating to ensure a convenient pick-up and drop-off location when others who had booked the same tour switched to a private group. It actually worked out better for us to have a mid-late afternoon tour as it gave...More

Kate was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and friendly. She knows the prime spots to look for Puffins and we saw quite a few pretty close. The minivan we travelled in was of a good size and there was space even when full to capacity....More

Thanks Julie. The puffins can be a bit harder to see early in the season so I am very happy we found them (and a few other birds) for you this time round.

Had a wonderful day with Kate. The weather was against us that day, but still saw some amazing things and learned a lot from Kate’s vast store of knowledge of the area. Highly recommended.
