Customer Testimonials

We had an absolutely brilliant day out with Island Vista yesterday! We did the 6h mystery tour of shetland, stopping for coffee and cake along the way. Jolene is a brilliant guide, really knowledgeable and fun :-) . Great day out even for locals, we learned so much about Shetland's history. Thanks for a great day Jolene and Paula!

While we were staying in Lerwick with our vessel, Jolene and her staff took care of all shore excursions and the complete organisation to my complete satisfaction. From the planning phase long before our arrival until the support during our actual stay, everything was perfect! It was a great pleasure working with Island Vista.

MV “Nordstjernen”

The professionalism, flexibility and dedication of Jolene and her staff made my own life as shore excursion manager much easier and gave us all a wonderful experience during our stay on Shetland, which was very much appreciated by our guests

All of our experiences and interactions with Island Vista have been exceptional. I was responsible for building a new cruise program to the Scottish Isles for Tauck. The design of the program began nearly two-years before the first actual arrival. I needed a sound and reliable partner in every port. In my research I was fortunate to find Island Vista; from my first communication with them I was confident I had found a great partner.
