This trip was fantastic!! I have done lots of tours throughout Europe and the UK and Jane was by far the best Guide I have come across! Loch Lomund is amazing, everyone should see it.
I loved it :)

Our tour guide John Wells was cheerful, informative, and an all-around wonderful tour guide! The stops on the tour were amazing and beautiful - the only complaint I have was that I was unaware that it would be an extra admissions fee into the Doune and Inveraray Castles. So just a warning, if you are on a budget, neither is included in the tour price. We were given the option in Inveraray to just look around the town and the loch, but there was no such option at Doune. Otherwise the tour was great and I would definitely recommend it.

The tour guide, Scott was an excellent commentator on Scottish history and history in making. Nice and easy itinerary, well worth it.

Scott was a fantastic guide. He knew so much about Scottish history and culture which allowed us to see with wider open eyes. If we go back to Scotland, we will probably do this tour again and will cross my fingers that we'll have Scott!

Since we are big Downton Abbey fans, we loved seeing Inverary Castle where the Christmas special was filmed. The whole day was great fun

Shelby was a great guide, expressive both in voice and hand gestures as she gracefully pointed to the map while driving the Highland roads, and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour. It was wonderful to learn so much about Scottish history and the whole day was one of the highlights of our trip.

The tour was wonderful. Fortunately we had good weather! The scenery was breathtaking, and our guide, Jan, was very knowledgable, personable, and entertaining. It was money well spent!

Fantastic! Exploring all the castles was amazing as was the scenery. It is a long day with lots of driving - but the driving is part of the experience thanks to the scenery but also the guide! Our guide was Euan and he was seriously the best tour guide I've ever had in all my travels. He was welcoming, funny and knowledgable about such a wide range of subjects: history, art, current affairs, politics and linguistics. He made the day, seriously. He recommended two good spots to grab a bite, again two of the best meals we had.

We had the best day out. Not only because of the wonderful scenery and interesting places we visited but because we had the best tour guide ever! He gave us history, past and present, as well as a few jokes and some rather good singing along the way! Thanks to Joe our day was made very relaxed and entertaining even for our 7 year old who enjoyed the 10 hour trip as much as everyone everyone else did. Would book another one for sure next time we're in Scotland.

a very enjoyable day. Ally was just amazing.Very well-informed and entertaining and an excellent driver as well on those perilous roads! The special detour he made on the trip from Inverary was the best.It is called 'the road to Hell' but was more like my idea of Heaven. The scenery was outstandingly beautiful and the drink of water at Moses' Well was pure nectar. We had plenty of local history about Robert The Bruce and William Wallace,Queen Anne(of the square coffin!),Bonnie Prince Charlie, examples of the Gallic language and Scottish music. I found the Loch Lomond song as we skirted the banks of the loch particularly touching especially when Ally explained the story behind it. I also enjoyed singing along to 'Mull of Kintyre' Ally has a lovely voice! Hope he liked mine!
We were a little squashed in the coach but had plenty of stops.The fish and chips in Inverary are not the best and rather pricey! Ally kept us all entertained. Such energy! Story-teller,historian,comedian,actor,singer,excellent photographer and driver all in one!! Just brilliant!
Thank you.

Amazing tour! Our guide, Pete, was fabulous! Fun, entertaining and professional all at the same time. I couldn't have asked for a better tour of the country.
