This tour, locally run, was outstanding. OUr guide, John Wales, was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the area and really brought it alive to us, interspersing his narrative with very relevant music. The small group tour was an excellent way to go and I would do it again in a minute. The only issue I had was that it would have been nice to have just a little more time on the lunch stops in case you actually wanted to buy something other than lunch, but this was minor compared to the overall wonderful tour with a stellar guide!
Great view of highland. Professional guide and sweet accommodation. The weather is so good. It is a amazing and memorable trip.
Our driver/guide, John McDermott was born for the job. He has a very pleasant and relaxing personality important when you are spending 10 hours a day with the guy. The 16 seat minivan enabled us to go on back roads where the big coaches of other companies could never go. Flexible, personalized, and professional service in every aspect of this trip.
This was one of the best tours I've ever taken! The tour guide, John McDermott was wonderful! He was very authentic in his kilt and being from Glasgow, and really knew his history, geography and cultural information. It was a small group and he accommodated all our interests. Thanks!
We absolutely loved this tour. Gorgeous land. Kind and welcoming people wherever we went, and our guide, Murray, was simply the best.
Our tour guide John was awesome! I would highly recommend this tour. The scenery was amazing and we went through back roads that the big coaches can't go. Loved the stories and music themed to the areas we visited. B and B was lovely. We paid for the ferry £1(should have been included) not a big deal.
Had the most wonderful time, even with one windy/raining day - still spectacular. Only had 8 on our trip which made it extremely comfortable, but even with a full van I think it would be OK. Our Guide Graham was truly amazing, nothing was too much of an issue, his knowledge of the area and history was outstanding. Our B and B was fantastic, modern and the owners very hospitable. Would highly recommend this trip to anyone.
Excellent 3-day tour. Our guide Graham was fantastic. He told us many historical stories and played us Scottish music along the journey. He also tailored to the interest in our group.
Fantastic trip with our excellent tour guide Graham. Our B and B for the two evenings were very comfortable and in a quiet residential area. It was a memorable trip.
My husband and I booked this tour on a whim. Thank you James (our tour guide) for a fantastic time. We stayed in the Pink Guest House accommodation (if you are in the Isle of Skye, you must stay here). We were blessed with wonderful weather (perhaps we brought it with us) so touring every day was brilliant. A wonderful experience which I would recommend to all..... We recommend you eat out at the local restaurants as the quality in all restaurants was fantastic.
This was a great tour. The scenery was spectacular and our tour guide was excellent. Would recommend
Isle of Sky tour was great, our bus driver, George, had interesting stories and music and took us to some amazing places we wouldn't have reached in a bigger bus. Certainly glad I could enjoy the scenery and not worry about driving.
We had a great time touring from Glasgow to the beautiful Isle of Skye. The driver/guide George helped to make the trip unforgettable. Would highly recommend this tour to anybody interested in seeing and learning about Scotland!
Grahmn was a superb tour leader. Very knowledgeable and willing to please. The weather was gloomy but our bus was sunny!
Three days to the Isle of Skye was fabulous - the small bed and breakfast I stayed at was wonderful. Clean, comfortable, good food and there was even taxi service back from the town center. Food was great and the Rabbies tour person was great.
We absolutely loved our tour, Graham was great, knowledgeable of history and Scotland was fantastic.He had a great personality felt like an old friend was showing us around. Loved the Scottish music that he played along with the stories he told about the history. The B and B run by Angus was excellent, the rooms were a great size and nicely staged. The breakfast around the table in the morning was excellent. Overall the 3 day tour was a delight and highlight of our stay. The Highlands are majestic the scenes breathtaking.
Beautiful part of the country, nice combination with Glasgow and/or Edinburgh. Guide was fun and flexible.
I would recommend the trip to anyone who is planning on visiting the Isle of Skye. The tour operator was great and the tour guide/driver was knowledgeable, awesome and gave us a few history lessons on the way. Enjoyed the short stories that came with the sightseeing and kept our interest alive throughout the trip. Amazing job done by our tour guide/driver. We simply loved it - the B and B was awesome. Ask for Graham - he is the best guide in town.
This is the best tour I've done and I've done a few. Murray you made the trip interesting, educational BUT most importantly you made every moment fun. Right from the start you made everyone welcome. The scenery through Scottish Highlands and on Skye is breathtaking and amazing. The weather wasn't the best some of the time but we made the most of every moment. The clouds and mist gave the highlands so much character and mood. Our B and B was new and extremely comfortable. The owners were very welcoming and made you feel at home. The only down fall is that it is a little out of town BUT the owners have a van and drive in whenever you want to go. I'd love to do it all again BUT with the sun shining ......it is Scotland I guess.
I would like to thank our driver/guide Andrew for this wonderful trip at Isle of Skye. We were quite lucky to have a guide who was inspiring and provided information on the history, the geography, the culture, the fauna and flora, music, etc. It made our trip worthwhile and quite sympathetic. He was born on Isle of Skye and the love of his country is really fantastic. I will thus highly recommend this trip to my colleagues, friends and family! Also the bed and breakfast at Hazelmount in Portree was quite sympathetic. Margaret went out of her way to make our stay confortable and breakfast was excellent. She is awesome. So, thank you again for this wonderful experience!!

Great driver/host/guide. Wonderful B and B for over night stays. Enjoyed the tour very much.
One of the best tours ever. Great scenery, you really see the highlands. Skye was a fantastic isle to visit. Our bus driver was fantastic and kept us well informed and entertained with his stories.
We had a fantastic time on this Tour. Largely due to our awesome Tour Guide/Driver Paul. He is obviously very passionate about his Home Country Scotland and has a vast knowledge of Scottish History. He kept us enthralled with the History and funny stories about the Fairys and local Legends. Along with the Scottish music it created a great feel for the Highlands and Skye. He also went out of his way to ensure we got the most out of our Tour by taking little detours to show us different views of Mountains and an extra Distillery or two ;) he even opted to take the bus over on the Car Ferry from Glenelg rather than go over on the bridge (we did that on the way back) just so we could experience the crossing and see Skye from a different angle. A great experience for all of us - the views were amazing! Rabbis organised our accomodation at Woodpark Guest House and Angis and Murdo looked after us well. The best way to see Skye - let the professionals look after you!!
