The overall tour was good. Disappointed how little time is spent at each stop.. wish there were less stops and more time allowed to wander and discover! Our guide, Adam, was fantastic. Very likable and informative.

George was a very knowledgeable tour guide. Through his knowledge and wit it was easy to stay focused on learning about the history of Scotland. The only thing I wish was different were the stops we made but this is no fault of George. George made sure the safety and comfort of the group was first and foremost important but without sacrificing fun.

The tour guide Niall was amazing, very friendly, great knoweledge and wonderful organized. The itinerary itself is ok nice views on the way. However next time I wouks choose a itinerary including a stop at the castle at lich ness as it was a little too boring for me.

Amazing! Loved this tour. It's a really long one, with a lot of bus-time, but they take a lot of breaks to let you stretch your legs and grab a snack, and they stop for pictures all the time. And what pictures! Breathtaking! Highly recommended, but be ready for a lot of time on the bus.

What a beautiful way to see and learn about the Highlands. Our tour guide Euan is simply the best!!!! He was very entertaining and knowledgeable. He not only told us about the areas we were travelling through but of the HISTORY of this land, which I thought added depth to the experience. The bus windows were wide enough to get some wonderful pictures as we go by and the music he was playing added to the ambiance. LOVED IT!!!!! Highly recommended tour for the entire family.
Thank you Euan for also going above and beyond for my family.

We really enjoyed getting to see the more rural areas of Scotland. A good introduction for tourists who have not seen this area before.

We traveled with Andy C. Even we hit some Scottish weather, our guide made it beautiful. He surprised us with his charisma, passion, outspokenness, sense of humor - that's not a guy you meet in a museum - instead we encountered a proffesional who loves his job.
The trip is quite long, you enjoy the Highlands from inside the bus, but it's the only way to see the diversity of the land. If you want to hike, you guide will show surely with sufficient details you where and when to go, what to take, how to prepare and travel. Of course, there were some stops in the most beatiful places, surely, we couldn't complain.
There's a cruise around the lake, you can take it or not - both options are satisfing, don't be afraid to explore on your own.
Thanks, Andy. We got more than we expected.

This was a wonderful day tour and truly, James is a national treasure. So many fun, funny, beautiful stories and he never got tired of sharing them with us. The bus was very comfortable and the scenery was so amazing!!!! It was a long day, but really fun and fulfilling. I would wholeheartedly do it again.

Amazing tour, the bus was clean and went on time. The tour guide Jimmy was absolutely great, did not realized 12 hours went by, he told us nice stories and knew a lot about the surroundings and folklore of the land. Highly recommend to get a real feel of Scotland !
