We had a great time. Angela was our tour guide, and she had so much knowledge about Scottish history and each place we visited. She told us some wonderful stories that kept us entertained. We traveled through some lovely country to get to the Isle of Skye and stopped in various places for photo opportunities.Our bus broke down while we were in Dunkeld, but once back on the road, she made sure we didn't miss out on any of the sights along the way. Our B and B was very comfortable and accommodating. We really enjoyed taking the Jacobean train from Malaig to Fort Williams. All in all, it was a fabulous three days.
A very enjoyable 5 day trip. Comfortable bus and places to stay. Our driver/guide was knowledgable and entertaining. A great itinerary.
Alan is the BEST guide - entertaining, quirky, knowledgeable and with such passion for his country and its history. The tour took us to places on the Isle of Skye with the most breathtaking views and Alan went out of his way to show us the hidden gems, not just the well-trodden tourist sights. The B and B showed us such warm hospitality and the staff were just lovely. The ferry/train took us pass some great scenery. Highly highly recommended. Only wish I did a much longer tour to take in more of the West Isles and highlands!!
Tour was well organised with a smaller group. A great tour guide. Andy did a wonderful job of giving us all a true Scottish experience with interesting narrative throughout the tour. The places we went to were spectacular.
Great tour. Beautiful scenery. Fun. Everything was well explained. Tour guide kept us apprised of any issues that may occur. Best tour guide ever.
No doubt , the star is this lovely ,stunning, varied countryside .
The rich culture is felt at almost every step one makes.
Sounds like a truism , but visiting Scotland is a must. This short tour surely
makes you want to see more.....
All this would have been half the fun without the absolute
exceptional 'performance' of our tour guide and driver Andy .
Incredible in-depth knowledge , good fun , extremely helpful.
This was entertainment at its best. Thanks Andy .
The bus we have used could have been more comfy / modern , with
The bus' condition clearly was a downside as well as the choice of B/B except for the one
at Inverness. The Jacobite train ride to us appeared grossly overrated.
Old train , totally uncomfortable/tight seats , windows allow only
limited room for photography . Our group evidently was placed in the
This tour was amazing!
Scenery of Isle of Skye is very beautiful, really enjoy ourselves.
However, I find that the duration given for each attraction is very tight and limited.
As sometime we need to walk to the location from the place we are being alighted and queue for the attraction, (which this take time).
Beautiful sights and lovely accommodation, but inappropriate tour guide.
Heather really knew her history and was entertaining as well. The beauty of the Highlands alone was worth it, too. The B and B was spacious for a B and B, we had a light and spacious bathroom ensuite which was nice, and the owners were welcoming and served excellent Scottish breakfast.
Angela was our tour driver and guide. She was very relaxed, professional and told the most wonderful stories with gusto and vigour. We once more believe in fairies. Angela was brilliant - the best guide we have ever had. Every day was filled with the most amazing scenery as well as interesting and varied activities. We loved everything about this tour.
This tour was amazing!
This is a must do. The breathtaking scenery, the history, the journey on the Jacobite Steam train was fantastic. Our driver Greg was informative, entertaining, and helpful. Value for money.
A great tour. The best part of the tour was the tour guide - Greg - who managed to make it even better. He did a great job explaining everything and really made the trip great. We saw a lot and did a lot. I loved the day of touring Skye. Beautiful country. The train ride was fun as was visiting the castles. Really loved Dunvegon. Highly recommend this tour.
Toni was fantastic, great knowledge of Scottish history, mythology and geology. Overnight stays were very good.
Great tour. Really enjoyed the trip and the guide. She was outstanding! I learned an awful lot about the homeland of my ancestors. It was ROUGH! Beautiful country.
A huge benefit of this tour was getting to know Dave, who became the face of Scotland for us! I felt as if all his stories and his keen passion for the history of his homeland elevated us to the status of "insiders."
The scenery throughout the 3 day tour was stunning, the very best for me being the QUIRAING. Walking up on those craggy green slopes with mist hovering around us was an other-worldly experience I will never forget. I would tell everyone they haven't really seen Scotland until they have visited the wild and rugged Highlands.
Katie, our driver was excellent. She did everything in her power to make our tour fun and interesting. The route was interesting, scenery beautiful and was, well, Scotland, so magnificent! Loved the Jacobite Train ride!
I didn't know that Viator was not a tour company, but a broker. I would surely travel with the tour company again.
Really 4 and a half. Guide was fantastic . Good group-mixed ages congenial. Should be five days. Too long in the bus everyday. Scenery beautiful
This was a wonderful tour and our guide Scot did a fabulous tour. The down side was I had booked an air conditioned mini bus and we got a large bus with 25 people. Additionally, there were just 6 of us on the tour that spoke English. It was very distracting to have the others not listening to the guide and to be talking not in English while he was talking. At times it was very had to hear what Scot was saying. This was disappointing. I chose to travel by tour so that I would have people to experience the trip with.
I love Scotland, what a fantastic trip. Our guide (Jamie) was great. Jamie was able to blend local music, food, and drink for each region of Scotland that we drove thru. I am slightly taller than 6' so the 3 days on the bus was a bit uncomfortable for me. The Rose Gardens (B and B) was quiet and the family staff were very friendly and helpful (good breakfast). Every bed in Scotland that I slept in left something to be desired (I can still feel some if those loose springs). The tour bus broke down in Portree on the 2nd day of the trip, which was great as it gave me the chance to sample a few of the local Portree establishments. Every meal was awesome. Jamie is a knowledgable guide and just a great guy. He was nice enough to sit and have a couple Whiskeys with me and my brother after a long day on the bus. Know that if you go on a Sunday most of the shops will be closed. Also, most restaurants all over Scotland stop serving food early so make sure you talk to the guide about reservations if necessary.
Tour was excellent!! Our tour guide, Andy, went out of his way to give us a memorable experience. The sights were breathtaking and the people we met were super friendly. Highly recommend it!
Joe is an excellent tour guide. He is responsive The trip is memorable!
Great tour, the driver/guide was so informative, his knowledge and ability to deliver it was terrific.
Also his patience was commendable with tardy passengers.
Accomodation was excellent and the places we visited were many and varied.
It was far better than I expected, I enjoyed it very much and would recommend it to any one.
The experience was much more than I expected. We enjoyed the stop to see the outdoor sites.
