The commentary was so enlightening, informative, entertaining and engaging. The scenery was magnificent and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Mark the tour guide was THE BEST. We will definitely be back and we highly recommend this trip as well as the tour company.
Andrew is definitely the best guide ever! Charming, knowledgeable, kind as so very funny. He made this trip just wonderful. When Andrew spoke he made Scottish history come alive. Can't say enough good things about this tour and Andrew! By the way, the sites were interesting and the accommodations were very nice as well.
Great trip! Wonderful coverage of Scotland - especially Skye. Our guide was perfect - great knowledge, interesting anecdotes, very patient with some difficult travelers. He made the trip enjoyable - really appreciated his attention to detail, responsiveness to individual needs and desires. Loved it
The Scottish Highlands are beautiful and worth visiting, no matter what the weather... The tour and the accomodation were well organized, and our tour guide, Rob, was entertaining, knowledgeable and helpful. I had a blast :)
An excellent tour covering part of the highlands and the Isle of Skye. Our guide was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable, and provided excellent commentary. Unfortunately there was quite a bit of rain on the days that we traveled, but the guide was very flexible, varying the route to enable us to make the most of the tour depending on conditions. Would recommend this tour highly. Indeed, would recommend a longer tour if such was available and time permitted.

We had a wonderful time during our 5-day Scottish Highlands tour. The service was provided by Experience Highland in Edinburgh. Our group of 16 came from diverse backgrounds, was congenial and full of fun. The accommodation was comfortable and breakfasts provided were great. Brian was our tour leader, driver and guide. In addition to his sense of humour, knowledge on Scotland's natural history and its people(s), Brian also provides an insight into Scottish perspectives on the sites and events of Scotland. He is extremely attentive to the needs of our group and his pride and love of Scotland are evident. We have also learned much about the cultural aspects of Scotland.
I felt as though I had been in a Scottish history class. Our guide, Stephen was as knowledgeable as any guide that I have ever been with. He made the Highlands tour a fabulous experience. I will recommend this tour to everyone that I know who may be coming to Scotland! I will also recommend that they ask for Stephen as their guide. He was the magic that made for a great tour!
I have been wanting to go to Scotland for several years and did extensive research on the tour company that I wanted to go with - I was not disappointed in Viator's booking of Highland Experience. I traveled with my family at the end of April/beginning of May and we were lucky enough to get our tourguide. While driving through the Highlands he would give amazing accounts of various battles, Scottish historical figures and political intrigues - and he would deliver it all interspersed with great humor. We did a lot in our five days. He truly went above and beyond to make sure everyone was happy on the trip and that all of our individual interests were met. Before we arrived in each town and be left to our own devices he would give us a small tour and point out fun things to do or good restaurants to try. I felt this was especially helpful in orienting to the new environment. Our guide (and Highland Experience) was very enthusiastic and accommodating to a diverse group of interests (Harry Potter, to Diana Gabaldon, to specific highland battles and sights) - and everyone's interests were catered to! I have very good memories of this trip and wish to return to Scotland again - not enough time and still so much more to see!
Our guide Brian was OUTSTANDING. The accommodations were first rate and the entire 5 days were memorable. We learned with all of our senses. Brian taught us Scottish songs, history, lore, and facts. He managed to provide us with sunshsine, wind, sleet, snow, fields of green heather, hairy coos and new born lambs. We will recommend Scotland and Highland Experience to all our fdriends We KNOW we received real value for our money. Thanks again for Brian.
I loved the small group experience with a good mix of people, 5 days was just right to see everything without rushing! Lots of stops for photos and walks, views are worth it! Thanks to our tour guide for his knowledge on the lore and history of Scotland, and the soundtrack to the trip, much appreciated.
