It was a fantastic tour in to the Highland - and we experienced a lot in one day.The guide was very good to tell about everything on the tour.
The weather was true Scottish summer - 4 seasons in the day.
Scotland is so beautiful. Our guide was very nice and told us everything we wanted to know about both past and present. The trip to the whisky distillery was very interesting. And the guide here was also very good. All in all, we had a great day and will remember it for a long time.
Great tour, beautiful scenery and friendly tour guide.
Excellent, tour guide wonderful very knowledgeable and informative. Just loved it, will return again.
Beautiful scenery of the highlands. I went in winter, was a bit cold, but the views were definitely worth it!
It was a good day trip but would have been excellent were it not for the weather. It rained all day, we walked in the woods in ponchos. The distillery visit was great and so was the stop over for lunch in a small quaint town called Pitlochry.
Great tour! Bus seats a little uncomfortable. Guide was excellent.
Driver/Guide Sarah was a knowledgeable and lovely person.
Enjoyed the fantastic scenery and the bush walk through the Hermitage.
Was disappointed about the choice of distillery tour. Nowhere on the VIATOR website did it say Dewars world of Whisky would be the destination. I didn't check the RABBIES website (which does list that in the description) as I mistakenly thought VIATOR would have all the information.
So apart from a considerable let down for my father and grandfather, for whom I'd organised the tour, it was a lovely day.
Martin was a great tour guide, informative, and interesting, and had great interlude music as well (Scottish, of course!). I traveled alone (was on a very short trip alone) and I had a great time with all the other people who were traveling in couples etc. So much to see and photograph and we had plenty of time everywhere. Would highly recommend this tour if you have one day to see the Highlands, the Lochs of Scotland and a great couple of shots at the Dewars factory.
The highlight of our tour was the tour guide herself. Laura was awesome! She gave us history of the regions by their importance to the places we visited throughout the day.
Overall, the driving was the drawback. We covered a lot of miles and, really didn't see too much in the way of difference from the Pacific Northwest ( where we are from). The whiskey tour was a bit of a let down but it was neat to see how a distillery works.
The little towns we stopped in had their charm but we either should have stayed longer in these villages and had fewer stops throughout the day or we should have had the chance to vote on where we should stop and for how long.
We gave this tour a 4 because the weather cooperated and we had no rain. It was nice not to have to wear a rain jacket all day.
One other thing we would like to comment on was the comfort of the bus.. Make sure you get a bus that has air! With 16 people on board (which is a full load), it gets a little stuffy and our air didn't work. Very stuffy and very smelly!
We always like to book with Viator and we will in the future but other than a few highlights throughout the day, this tour was one of our least favorites.
