Driver-guides provide their own vehicle licensed by Orkney Islands Council (OIC). They are insured to carry up to eight paying passengers. Their vehicles must display an OIC licence plate. Some of our members are licensed commercial drivers and can offer tours in larger vehicles.
Step-on guides do not have their own licensed vehicle but can join you as a guide in your own vehicle. This can be car, minibus or coach, as long as they are not driving. Our step-on guides can also hire a vehicle with a licensed driver on your behalf.
Please see our FAQS if you have any queries, but please note that OTGA members are self-employed and each have their own terms and conditions which should be agreed at the time of booking.
