Private Tours

Are you visiting Shetland as a part of a group? Would you like a tour tailored to your own interests? We can offer a bespoke small group private tour in one of our comfortable smaller vehicles. For larger groups we can arrange private tours in one of our minibuses or coaches.

We offer a flexible service and if you wish to only visit a particular attraction, contact us with your specific requirement.

For example we could take you on a trip to explore Shetland knitting in the South Mainland, combined with some stunning scenery and our famous ponies.  Find out more about the history of Shetland by visiting Jarlshof, our most important archaeological site plus a visit to some of our historical attractions. Or you might like a day trip to the dramatic cliffs at Eshaness. If you have watched the crime drama ‘Shetland’ we can take you on a tour of the filming locations. Whatever your interest we can help you have a great Shetland experience. Just contact us with your requirements! Let us help make your visit to Shetland unforgettable.

Prices below include vehicle hire plus a tour guide. Entry fees for attractions and any meals would be payable in addition to this.

“I will say that if you’ve ever been on one of those big bus tours with 60+ people, you’ll really appreciate the intimate, friendly, and personal approach Shetland Explorer Small Group Tours takes. Highly recommend these great folks!” Tony
