This tour was one of the best experiences of my life, the Highlands themselves are amazing and the experience was only heightened by the knowledge and general awesomeness of our guide, Tony. This is a great way to see some of the Highlands in one day and experience some truly fresh air. 10/10

We really enjoyed the West Highlands experience with John the Kilt wearing DJ. He bent over backwards to make us feel welcome and cater for our needs. John is obviously very passionate about his job which gave the tour an extra special dimension. It would be great in the off season to actually go into one castle however. The information, scenery and company were fabulous. We would happily do another tour with your company. Liz, David and Amelia

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Andrew, our guide, was very pleasant and knowledgeable. We had a very small group and he seemed to gear his comments and stops to our interests. It was the only day during our stay in Scotland that the sun was out all day! Absolutely beautiful.
