A long day but a good one, really is two days worth of tour in one day, but I still highly recommend this trip. Fascinating history stories, nice, knowledgeable guide and driver, and the Highlands of Scotland are indescribably beautiful. I also recommend taking the Loch Ness cruise (cost is extra) as it is beautiful as well.

Our tour guide, Kenny, was a great story teller. He was a stickler for keeping to the time schedule which allowed us to make a couple extra photo opportunity stops along the drive. The loch ness cruise was very nice, I get motion sickness pretty badly but had no problems on the cruise boat.

A long long day with most spent in the van but an excellent experience. Fantastic history stories from Ken our tour guide who comes across as a mean old buggar but he's really a big softy and a pushover who makes the day amazing. Windosr Castle is very busy in the summer so probably would not do that again but Glencoe was out of this world when it came to beauty and Lochness was very enjoyable. Well worth the money I would say with extra stops thrown in by Ken.

Fantastic experience - brilliant guide. Comfortable sized group and bus - not to small for such a long journey. Only tour company offering this route - felt very personal as this company does not follow ALL the other tour companies to Loch Ness. Great value for the length of entertainment you get. 100% recommend this company for comfortable midi-coach (appropriate for the tour) excellent guide, unique route and the ticket price.

This was a really good trip they packed a lot into the tour we travel far into the High lands (past inverness) and got to see and hear a lot of the history. My favorite part of the trip was getting on the boat cruise at Loch Ness and also thanks to the lovely weather being able to see the summit of Ben Nevis.
Some downsides were the short stops at some of the best view points e.g 10 minutes at Ben Nevis vs. a 30 minute toilet break...
Also the fact that the boat tour cost extra was a bit disappointing (£13 when we went) I was hoping that would be included.

You should inform us before, that there will not be no 'Rest room'/'toilet' facilities in the bus. Normally in this kind of long tour it has toilet facilities. I had my aged father with me that day. If i knew this I might have taken other tour. It was not suitable for him.

The trip itself was fantastic. The scenery and the beautiful drive and stops throughout Scotland were incredible. I wish the tour would have allowed us to actually go to a couple of the castles that we drove by throughout the day. I enjoyed our tour guides commentary throughout the trip, but on a 600 km drive, a little quiet time would have been fantastic too. Overall, I'm so glad my friends and I took the day long journey.

Saw lots of wonderful sites but realize that it was too much for one day. Would do it again over two days I didn't feel that the advertising made me aware that the attractions would often be whistle-stop or drive-past tours. As I am not from the U.K I was not aware of the distances involved. Also the bus was not as comfortable as the Hadrian's Wall trip bus and seats seemed a lot more cramped. We were in the back seat and were very fortunate that we had very considerate fellow passengers as it could have been quite difficult. Enjoyed the trip . The guide was fantastic. Commentary was excellent and well suited to the audience. Music was very appropriate and well-timed. George isvery skilled at his job and obviously has a strong sense of what is the right time, right place, right way to say things that gets his message across. It was just the bus accommodation and the description of the trip in the advertising that I was a little disappointed in. However, the presentation of the tour couldn't have been better. 5Stars for presentation, George..
