Not only was the scenery incredible the drive kept the drive very interesting with historic information about the areas we were traveling in.
I totally recommend this tour to people from all ages and places in the world! Despite being a "Potterhead" (the tour took me to places I had always wished to go to experience Potter's films), I was able to learn loads of Scottish history while having a great time in those stunning landscapes! Simply PERFECT!!! I certainly exceeded all my expectations! Don't miss it!
Snowy mountains, spectacular lakes, a visit to the excellent visitor centre at Culloden, overnight at a cosy B and B, a knowledgable and amusing driver, and the highlight, the journey on the Jacobite train. This trip was everything I had hoped for. I highly recommend it.
My first time with this tour company and it was a great experience! Allan my tour guide was great and the train.....an amazing experience!!! Loved it!
The Glencoe area in Scotland is amazing....loved it! Fully recommend this experience....not many steam trains left!!, go for it!!!
This was a fabulous tour! I greatly enjoyed it. Our tour guide John Paul was very knowledgeable, funny, and stopped frequently to let us take lots of pics. I learned a lot about the Jacobites which gave greater meaning to the places we stopped at.
We saw a lot of places in a short amount of time but it's a trip I will never forget and is well worth taking.
We got to see A LOT of things in a short amount of time, which was really really nice! Our tour guide Collin was amazing and friendly and fun and gave us tons of fun facts along the way. It was a little bit rushed but that is the price you pay when you chose a tour that has a lot of things packed in 2 days! Overall, it was a great way to see the highlands and the B and B that was booked was amazing!
The Jacobite Experience with the Hogwarts Express train was a highlight of our trip to Edinburgh. This tour exceeded our expectations, with the majority of the success due to our driver/guide, Colin. He is by far one of the best we've ever met and will stay with us forever in our memories of Edinburgh.
I went on this tour with my daughters 14 and 11 and we all had the very best time. It was a small group in a mini bus with an excellent tour guide who made the whole trip even on the train so interesting. The scenery was stunning - we had informal stops for photos etc and the B and B was first class. I couldnt recommend this trip enough - 2 long days but well worth it.
One of the best tours we have ever done! Incredibly knowledgeable and personable guide. Great itinerary. Very nice mini-bus. Jam-packed from start to finish. Train ride was a blast.
What an amazing trip! Can highly recommend it to any age group. Our bed and breakfast accommodation was fantastic. We had amazing views of the Loch from our front door and a wonderful and plentiful breakfast to set us up for the day. The steam train ride was certainly a highlight, but our tour guide Colin was just as entertaining! Thank you Viator and Colin for some fond memories of the Highlands.
It was fun to get out of the city and see the country side of Scotland. It was so green and peaceful. The guide Steven was very friendly and he was constantly telling us about the histlry of Scotland. At each stop he gave us a good background about the area. He took us to a place that is similar to stone Henge. It was nice to walk around the structures and take pictures. We were the onlly ones there at the time. Steven took us the to the location where the book Peter Pan was written. We saw the building that the story was written. The Jacobite train ride was fun. We took pictures, visited with otheres and enjoyed the screenry. It was well worth the money to get out into the country and learn about Scotland.
Jean-Paul was awesome, very knowledgeable and funny. The "bus" was hugely uncomfortable though, they cram you into a sardine can.
The Jacobite train was AWESOME!
This was a great trip even though it rained most of the time. Suggestion to tour company, you need better sound system as the guide could not be heard at the back of the bus.
The Jacobite Steam train was interesting, and we were able to take lots of pictures. The journey itself was quite peaceful, just enjoyed the scenery. The seafood at Mallaig was amazing, but there wasn't much else to do in the little town.
The highlight of the tour was our driver, who kept us entertained with jokes and stories about Scottish history. This was very welcome as a lot of the trip was taken up by long stretches of driving with a few quick stops to take pics.
