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!!

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I'm very glad we decided to go with the tour, and not travel on our own. The views were so beautiful, I couldn't imagine driving a car while looking at the scenery! Our guide, Tony, was not only informative on the facts, but also on local folklore and legends told with a genuine sense of humor. The only bad part of the whole trip, was where the tour ended. Honestly though, I don't think 3 days is enough time!
