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!!
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
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).
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
