Useful Information

Useful information you need to know ahead of your tour and visit to Shetland:

Group Size

Our small group tours are for groups of 2 to 6 people. If your group is more than 6 people, please get in touch for further options. We can easily accommodate larger groups subject to vehicle availability.


Vehicles used will either be a saloon car or small people carrier, depending on the size of your party. These vehicles are not accessible for wheelchairs.


If you require wheelchair access, please contact us to discuss your requirements. Some elements of the tours are not suitable for wheelchair users.

Some walking will be required on all tours, but this can be kept to a minimum if necessary.

Tour Team

All tours will be led by a team consisting of an experienced driver and fully qualified Green Badge Tourist Guide for Shetland.


The only thing predictable about Shetland weather is that it is unpredictable! Please dress for the outdoors and wear suitable footwear.

Occasionally, it is not always possible to do the tour as described due to the weather. We will contact you in advance should there be any issues.

Exclusive Tours

All tours will be private unless otherwise specified in the tour description. We will not sell tickets to other people as there is no way to socially distance at this time. This also gives us more options if you wish to make the tour longer and tailored to suit your needs.


All entrance fees are included in the price, however, food/drink is an additional cost. If you would like to extend the length of the tour and include refreshments/lunch, please do not hesitate to ask.

Cancellation Policy

For 2021, Island Vista will waive all cancellation charges, giving you greater flexibility in this uncertain climate.
