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!
A very long day but a very good day. Loch Ness cruise was thoroughly enjoyable, Glen Coe was amazing and the driver/guide Kenny was outstanding and informative
Great day. Left at 8am and returned by 8/9pm. Mike the tour guide was excellent!!!
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.
Very good trip and the driver was exelent. Impressiv that the driver could holde the time and told stories about the area.
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.
Gives good taste of the Highlands. Long day. No rest rooms on board bus. Guide "Kenny" was great. Pls. be advised that you must have cash for the Loch Ness cruise - no credit card capability.
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.
