This was an excellent tour except that we found out late that the option of visiting Sterling castle was actually not included. Had we know that earlier,we would squeeze in another day or another tour to do that. However, the tour was very enjoyable.
It is a trip to Loch Ness and a few stops on the way there, and a few stops on the way back to Edinburgh. The stops were scenic and good for photo taking. It is rushed, but I think that is the best any operator can do with a day trip to cover that many miles.
Kenny was the tour guide. Strict and stern with regards to punctuality. He has a unique sense of humor, which luckily I can totally relate. This also means the tour group were on time at every stops, and allowed us to squeeze in more stops for photos.
Great driver and guide, thanks to Max it didn't seem like a 12 hour trip
Funny and awesome places we visited
The tour was exceptional. It gave an excellent experience of the beauty of the highlands. Our guide, Fergus, gave quite a bit if history and explanations along the way. It was well presented, with musical interludes. I would reccommend this tour to anyone wishing to experience the beauty of Scotland.
Fantastic. The Tour Guide was very knowledgeable, funny, and very proud of his country. The sites were amazing. Highly recommended tour.
This was a great tour. Lots to see and do and the guide was magnificent. Would highly recommend it.
Even though the day was mostly driving, this was still my favorite part of my trip to Edinburgh because the Highlands were so beautiful, and the boat cruise around Loch Ness made it all worth it. There is just so much beauty in the landscapes that it's overwhelming. Highly recommend.
We had a fantastic time on this tour. The scenery was breathtaking.
Kenny was such a lovely tour guide!! We were so fortunate to participate on such a beautiful day! The highlands tour was a great way to fit more into my trip!! I highly recommend this tour! :)
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.
Kenny is the best tour guide in Scotland. Loved him and the tour. Three thumbs up
Andrew is definitely the best guide I have ever met with since I came to the UK! Passion, knowledge, skills, he has anything that you will want to see in a guide
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!
Shelley is the tour guide, she is superb, passionate about the Scotland!
