Our original tour was canceled because the driver was sick, but the tour company representative (Katrina) communicated the change early, was very thoughtful, and got us booked on another tour. I'm sure the original tour would have been great, but the Loch Ness/Glencoe/Highlands tour we ended up on was better than we could have imagined. Our guide/driver, Kenny, was absolutely delightful, engaging, funny, and informative. We loved him. We made many stops, we felt well taken care of, we had fun, we saw amazing things, plus the weather was fantastic. I can't recommend this tour -- or Kenny -- highly enough!!

From breathtaking scenery to fascinating history, you've got it all on this tour! It is a wonderful way to see the Scottish highlands if you don't have much time. The guide was extremely knowledgable, but also kept us thoroughly entertained for the whole trip with his stories, re-telling of the history of the region, intermingled with his "Dad jokes" and unique sense of humour. Even when the start of the Glasgow marathon saw the closing of half the streets in Glasgow, so the driver/guide had to re-orient himself to find his way out of the city, he never appeared flustered or angry. This was a thoroughly enjoyable tour which I would highly recommend.

Guide seemed to have some personal issues as he wasn't as friendly as some of the others. I did 8 day trips in Edinburgh and Dublin and this guide was by far the worst. But it was a sunny day and visiting the locations was excellent.

This trip was FANTASTIC. Small group, 6 people in a mini-van. The driver/guide was John Paul who was so informative and knowledgeable on all the aspects of history and culture. I thought the trip was worth the price and I would book another tour with Viatour. Kudos to John Paul for making a memorable trip to Oban and the West Highlands. This tour was great since it gave you a contrast of the coast and highlands. Well worth it!br/> Cathryne Sundel- New York City/USA

I liked the tour and guide was helpful and had the knowledge. But only like to tell that instead of one hour if we could get two hours in Oban, it would be better.

So much trash lying around sights we visited. It woul be a good idea for tour companies to participate in keeping them clean.

It was a good trip through the Scottish highlands, however we should have had 2 hours in Oban to give us enough time for lunch and sight see. We only had 1 hour which certainly was not enough. I felt rushed and didn't really get to enjoy Oban. The. Driver was nice and knew his history well.

It would have been better to go deeper into the highlands, or to see more castles, then to go to Oban. The guide was good and the castle we did go to was beautiful.

Although the scenery was pretty, the Rabbie's trips were much better. This guide played pre-recorded messages about Scotland that you could buy at a store and on the return trip played the Wimbledon tournament the whole route.
