Excellent! I would highly recommend this tour. Really, I had an enjoyable time in Scotland. Thanks Viator’s Provider of the tour for this special moment in my life. Just concluded if you don’t know the Highlands, you don’t know well Scotland. Tour meeting point: it was in front of Rabbie’s store at the Royal Mile/High Street. Staff really friendly in the reception. Tour vehicle: Rabbie’s Edinburgh - A mini bus Mercedes, comfortable for two days trip; Tour guide: really nice-friendly guy and good driver. He kept a good and funny environment during the tour. Always, he was caring about his “tour people”. He was caring about time-toilette, to keep everybody around to not lose themselves in the Forest, walkings, etc. He always giving us tips about the places (History, Geography, General Knowledge… linking with movies as well). He also gave us info about restaurants at the stops. Tour schedule/planning: perfect. In terms of knowledge, history you can learn lots with the tour guide-driver as well. Our guide always giving info about places, geography and history of the places. Kids may be bored at some point. But good for taking photos, enjoying the places. Tour B and B (Ardross Guesthouse-B and B): Lovely stay. I must confess I am a bit fussy about to sleep at clean places. It was my first experience in a B and B. I read a previous review they wrote B and Bs were a good option. So it really was better than I thought. Family B and B and so much better stay than many hotels. Free with good signal wii fi. Great location few metres on walk to Inverness (3 min): town, old town, Ness walk, shoppings, Tescos, good pubs with food, restaurants, tourist spots as Inverness Castle, Church St Andrew. Bright room/Comfy bed. My room was as clean as “mother cleans our room”. Good smell. I felt like a friendly home room, not only an accommodation. Tasty and simple breakfast (hot, drinks and cold options). Ok, the Highlands weather was not great, but I still had one of most enjoyable times/trips (I have been travelled lots of places in our world! I would describe myself as a well travelled person!)
It's been a superb short break for myself and my niece. We love it and would go again. Thanks to our tour guide Euan who had been so friendly and make this trip more colorful. Thanks again.
This was a great trip - I really feel like we had a special experience. There's no way I could have seen so much or such special things independently. Our trip was planned so well that we arrived at a Loch Ness beauty spot just in time for sunset. That, and the time in Glen Affric were truly stunning, unforgettable experiences. Many thanks to Barney too - you were great!
Loved every bit of our tour - except that it didn't go longer. We were in the worst storm for 100 years but the tour was adapted to take in conditions and we got to see more of the beautiful Cairngorms. The highlights were Eric's beautiful singing and the wonderful Atherstone B and B in Inverness.
This was one of the best tours I've been on in terms of the knowledge, cheerfulness and fabulous good humour of our tour guide (who also doubled as our driver)...and I've been on lots! Despite typical cold and wet weather in the highlands, we managed to see everything, had all our questions answered about absolutely any topic and had great recommendations for local food and entertainment possibilities during our night over in Inverness. Way to go Audrey--you are one amazing tour guide! The scenery was spectacular and history abounds. This is definitely the way to see the countryside beyond Edinburgh for those who have limited time.
This trip is incredibly beautiful, educational and fun. Emily was our guide and her knowledge of everything (except numbers, as she would tell you) is amazing. The 2-day trip just makes you wish you had 5 more days to enjoy the Highlands! Wish there had been a way to get to Pitlochery earlier since it is such a scenic place, but for all we saw, I would highly recommend this trip.
the tour was fantastic. George our guide was a wealth of information and was good fun to travel with. he made sure that there is plenty of photo opportunity and he welcome suggestion and special stops. thanks you George for a great 2 days
Great way to see the countryside and allowed me to see places I would not have travelled to being a solo traveller. Enjoyed the trip very much and met some lovely people. Petula was terrific - highly recommend!
Great 2 days with a knowledgeable organized. Funny guide (Bob). Everything went smoothly. Took a lot of pics and I would have wanted more because I liked it a lot. Congrats to all. We will pass the good word!!!
Instructions given easy to follow. Very friendly greeting from the tour guide Shelby was very cool!! This tour is highly recommended. Guide was very entertaining and informative. We saw some wonderful scenery and were given many photo opportunities by the guide. Overall totally enjoyable would do it again!
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2-day trip with Bob through the Highlands. He was courteous, professional, and gave just the right mix of history, information and folklore to maintain interest while we drove. Photo stops were well timed for scenic beauty and opportunity to stretch. The bed and breakfast was lovely! Our daughter and son-in-law were with us and enjoyed it as much as we did! Thank You!
Great trip! Öur tour guide/driver Audrey was fanatastic. She was funny and informative. I highly recommend the tour.
Dear Viator and Robbie Tours -
Our tour was excellent. We went on a 2 day excursion to Loch Ness and Inverness.
Our guide was Audrey who was wonderful. My wife gets car-sick and Audrey made sure that she had a seat near the front of the van for the whole two days. Please thank her for us...... Audrey was also very cordial and knowledgable.....
We really enjoyed working with Viator and Robbie Tours.....
Thank you, again .
Very nice and interesting trip to the scottish highlands with a fantastic driver/guide Audrey whom she had a very good knowledge of the history of Scotland and also of the scottish highlands. I think without her it would have been less interesting. Thanks from Alvin + Lorna form Malta
Really enjoyed the tour. Tour guides, Derek and James were great, very friendly and knowledgeable. Was a bit worried about the accommodation in Inverness as I only requested a 3 star, but it was excellent. Overall, I would highly recommend this tour, especially if you aren't really into the big tour thing, the small group was good.
This tour is absolutely wonderful! Our tour guide, Ali, was enthusiastic and loved showing us the beautiful sites along the way. I loved Mrs. Molly and the B and B she owned in Inverness. Highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see beautiful Scotland!!!!!!
This was one of the best tours that I have been on! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. I learned so much from taking this tour and it far exceeded my expectations.
Loved all of it! The views were spectacular. The ride was very comfortable, lots of stops to stretch and enjoy the wonderful views. Very organized. Our tour guide Derrick was the best! Very entertaining and knowledegable.Would definitely recommend.
Great Tour! Knowledgeable Tour Guides! Comfortable Mercedes Van!
I loved this tour. Our guide Ali was very friendly and had alot of knowledge about all of the places we travelled to!! The scenery was beautiful and it was nice to meet new friend's on the trip I would definitely do another tour. Had so much fun.
WOW!!! This was my 5th trip to Scotland and my 3rd Viator tour. I truly thought that there would be no more to see,but I was wrong. Our energetic, enthusiastic guide encouraged us (mostly 50 yr +s) to go past our comfort zone and to experience new levels of excitement, AND WE DID! The wilderness hike at Loch Affric was breathtaking, literally and scenically. The fresh air was refreshing to our lungs. While the moutains, flowing waters, heather, and cairn were endless. Our tour also benefited from the immmense volume of historical as well as present day information provided entertainingly by our guide. Everyone appeared to be pleased with the photo opportunities, especially when the bus stopped along the roadside and we all found ourselves focusing our cameras on a highland bull being flaged our way by our,yet again, dedicated guide. Now, in closure, my very first experience in a B&B has to be ranked a 10. A peaceful room with a castle view provided by wonderful people. What more could be asked for?
Excellent tour, plenty of time to enjoy various stop offs, tour guide Ally was fantastic, funny, helpful and informative. You havent experienced the real Scotland unless you take the time out to do this 2 day tour.
tour guide excellant the only thing I would have liked to do bit more shopping.But this would not deter me from my rating.
