A fantastic journey with an accurate, intelligent and funny guide called Sergio. Plenty of stops, taking some extra stops to take incredible pictures. The tour was 12 hours long but we had the sensation of a much shorter trip. It's worth to recommend.

Our driver, Kenny, made our day trip unique and welcoming from the start. He was fun, entertaining with his music and history, both live and audio and we saw and learned a great deal about the area. The food and bathroom breaks were always perfect timing. Kenny's driving skills should be commended and he made this tour a day to fondly remember.

Fergus, was an excellent guide and I and my family was travelling with 8 year old twins are quite grateful for his help during the tour. We were quite motion sick but overall it was quite a rewarding experience. Will certainly come back some time in the future to explore Glen Coe in greater details. Must to do for anyone coming to Edinburgh.

The trip was excellent giving a real feel to the highlands. Fergus, the driver and tour guide was really good narrating the tour...loved his historical stories. The 12 hours went by very quickly.

Very good tour! It is a bit of whirlwind to do in one day, but it was a lot of fun. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to see the Scottish countryside and some towns. If you have more time though I would probably say go for the 2-3 day trip instead. You will have more time to really explore. The one day was all we could do and it was great for seeing the landscape and going out on to Lock Ness, but we didn't really get to see much of the small towns we stopped in briefly.

Great tour and great tour guide, Cameron! A full day of sightseeing galore! The Scottish Highlands are breathtaking; the boat ride on Loch Ness was so enjoyable with scenery that looked like a post card.
Cameron was able to provide very interesting details and history about Glen Coe and the MacDonald and Campbell clans.... and how a little of their 'feud' still continues on today. We especially enjoyed all the information about William Wallace and the 'insider extra' details that "Braveheart" left out! So glad we took this tour!

This was our first trip to Scotland. I chose the trip to the Scottish Highlands and a very glad that I did. At least once in my life I wanted to see Loch Ness and was surprised and happy that a boat ride on the Loch was part of the tour. While we never saw "Nessie" we did see wonderful scenery and learned a lot about the Jacobite uprising and the tragedy of Glen Coe. My husband and I have a passion for history so having an opportunity to expand our knowledge of British history made it more interesting to us. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area pointing out many things we would certainly have missed had we been on our own.

This tour was amazing and exactly what I hoped for when I signed up! Kenny was a wonderful guide and bus driver. I had a business meeting in Edinburgh and then just one day after the meeting to see the Highlands--and how could I travel all the way to Scotland and not see Loch Ness? This tour was just like going on a "power walk" of the Highlands. Got to see so much and enjoy with one day limited time. I highly recommend purchasing the Loch Ness boat cruise. Plenty of time to snap lots of gorgeous photos, buy some gifts and try some great lunch food and snacks. If you want to see as much as you can, enjoy local history stories while driving by the relevant sites and also have time to cruise Loch Ness and look for "Nessie" this tour is for you! the landscape is breathtaking! so glad I was able to join this tour!

Our trip to the Scottish Highlands was fantastic! It was a long journey, but I hardly noticed because the ride was beautiful, and we saw so many cool places. Our bus driver/guide, Mike, was great! Definitely the best guide of any of the day tours we've been on across Scotland and Ireland. A note: the boat trip at Loch Ness costs extra, but was definitely worth it in my book. You get a really lovely view of the land around the lake that you just won't get from the shore.

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.
