This was an awesome- one of the best I have been on. We did it through viator through a local co called Rabbys. The van was comfortable and the variety of castles and sight to see were amazing. Lots of time to get out and take photos and explore. The highlight was Mike our guide. He had a wealth of information about Scotland and its history and a gift for story telling. We hardly wanted to take a break from the stories to see the castles. Great day and great price.
This tour was exactly what we were seeking. The trip combined castles to see with beautiful nature scenes in the Highlands. We were not disappointed.
I don't think I've ever enjoyed learning the history of a place quite so much as on this tour. Our tour guide/driver was friendly, knowledgeable and funny all the way through the day.The castles and sights along the way were breathtaking, it's amazing how much of the structures have survived in some cases. I think Doune castle was probably the best, especially with the Monty Python connections. Inverary Castle was beautiful as well.
Our trip was wonderful and all we thought it would be. Our guide Joe was extremely knowledgeable and personable. He was very entertaining and sang to us.
Our guide, Mike, was fun and knowledgeable, telling us stories about Robert the Bruce and Mary Queen of Scots so we really connected to the places we were going and seeing. The weather was perfect, though I know that was all luck, and there was plenty of time to see all the places we wanted to see within the castles and lochs. The only thing I wish was that we'd gotten closer to Stirling Castle. since we never actually went into Stirling and only saw it from the back. Otherwise, everything was absolutely perfect.
Jane. Our guide, was fantastic. Great stories that were told with a sense of humor and a solid understanding of history and the countryside. We saw wonderful castles and lochs and were not disappointed at all.
A great tour with a fantastic tourguide! Our tourguide had so much knowlegde - it was incredible. He was also great at telling all the stories about the fascinating history of Scotland. The scenery and castles were beautifull. Besides a great tour we have learned so much about this amazing country.
Heather was the best!! I could've listened to her stories the whole time and I would've been happy (record them and i would definitely buy them ;p) Visiting the amazing castles along the way was just perfect too!
The company, the tour guide , the content and of course the Scotland surrounding were beyond my expectation. Highly recommended.
Although it was raining almost all day long we had a very nice excursion. Our guide was very nice, entertaining.
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.
