One of the best trip ever. Our tour guide/driver name Gordon was great! He was knowledgable and provide lots of informations throughout our journey. Many places that we went to capture scenery and all of them were amazing.
Beautiful. Wonderful. Our guide Ally was awesome. Great tour..
Fantastic tour fantasting guide Duglas. Take the boat tour definitely! !
This is a fantastic tour. We had a very nice tour guide, Robin. He was very passionate about his job giving us loads of background information, historical stories and mixing his explanations with appropriate songs and musics. All made our trip absolutely fantastic. The number of stops for taking photo is good as well as the group is small only 15 persons on minibus.
We had an absolutely wonderful day. The weather was beautiful, we saw more than we ever thought we would. Our tour guide, Jonathan, was fantastic!! He was full of so many interesting stories and kept us informed of every stop we'd be taking. All the lochs were amazing, and the ruins of a 700 year old castle was just icing on the cake!
Great day in the Highlands! We were also so lucky with the weather! Time spent on the boat trip along Loch Ness and also the time at Glen Coe made me wish I go back hiking there. Highly recommended!
Ally Alastair was our tour guide and he has an encyclopedic knowledge of Scottish history. You gotta do this tour.
This was a fantastic tour and highly recommended. Our guide, Jonathan was very entertaining and full of interesting facts. Stops along the tour, in small towns like Callandar and Pitlochry, are great. The highlands are amazing and there will be plenty of photo opportunities. There's plenty of choices for lunch at Fort Augustus. Best way to see the highlands from Edinburgh.
The driver Richard was very knowledgable and told us all the famous landmarks and the story behind them. There were plenty of time for photography. The views were sensation. The lunch was not the best at the Moorings. It is definitely a worthwhile trip if you are in Scotland.
We really enjoyed seeing the beauty of the Highlands and feel we learned a lot about Scotland on the tour. Eric was wonderfully informative and entertaining. The three Scottish songs he sang were a highlight of the tour for his voice was lovely. Three cheers for a terrific tour guide!!!
Excellent tour. Lots of interesting information by our guide Jan and nice Scottish tunes while on route. Well worth the money.
Eric, the singing driver, was amazing! Great knowledge of the local history, and the young fellow on the boat, can't remember his name, was very engaging and funny. I highly recommend this tour.
Had a great rime, the guide was funny, new his history and was a pleasure to be around. Good level of stops as well.
Gill was so knowledgable, and gave us a history lesson. I bought books on Scottish history after this tour. Loved the beautiful trip and back. I would say skip the boat ride on Lock Ness, unless you just want a boat ride on the water. Nothing more to it than that. Overall, great trip.
I loved this tour,Pete was Great..my only regret is wanted to see Urquhart Castle ?
maybe next time.
Took this tour in early August 2015. We were so fortunate to have the amazing Stephen as out trip leader for the day. Stephen made Scottish history and folklore come alive as we travelled up to the highlands. We learned so much about this country in one day that it felt like we really got to know the place. Stephen even played Scottish music and sang a little on our tour! Apart from the trip leader, the tour itself was amazing and we got to see everything we wanted. a big bonus was the small size of the bus. Stephen put all 16 or so guests at ease and we all got along talking all day long! On the way home we asked Stephen to get us close to a highland cow and he absolutely delivered!! The trip was inspiring and I', sure we'll be back to the highlands one day.
It was a great tour, not least because of our guide Audrey, her infectious enthusiasm, sense of humor, cheerful attitude, and competence. Audrey, thank you very much!
I loved that this was a small group. I brought 12 people so we got our own bus plus 2 people that joined us. The Highlands were amazing, breathtaking. Loch Ness was a typical tourist trap, probably won't go there again. To be honest, I don't remember Glencoe. What made our trip truly wonderful was our guide, Ally. There were a few teachers on the bus and we all commented on how he would give us history and then later go back and quiz or make reference to what he had told us before. We definitely learned the most about Scotland because of him. Ally was friendly and animated, which made the trip very enjoyable. If I book through the local tour company again, I will request Ally!!
Excellent tour, beautiful bus, entertaining tour guide out of Rabbis in Edinburgh. Scenery was fabulous, a definite must!
The driver is the best driver ever, perfect arrangements, awesome and impressive.
This tour was absolutely fabulous! The sites were stunningly beautiful and our tour guide, Gill, was a pleasure. She was extremely friendly and informative, and also provided wonderful music as the soundtrack to our journey. I would recommend this tour to everyone.
