Very enjoyable tour. Guide was good. Bus was very nice. Took the cruise on Loch Lomond where we saw large old estate homes on the shores. Stirling Castle was very impressive -my favorite part of the tour. Our driver took a slight detour to let us see Doune Castle which was used in the filming of Outlander. Driver took another detour after coming back to Edinburgh to show us the three bridges including the famous railroad bridge. The trip was also good for seeing some of the beautiful scenery of Scotland. Good tour. Would recommend.
Stuart was an awesome tour guide, full of lots of historical info and he played some great songs for us. Stirling Castle was my favourite part of the tour. The little village of Luss was pretty. Great lunch at Woolen Mill Shop. Well worth the money for this tour.
From the moment we stepped onto the bus until we made our exit at the end of the day we were treated with extraordinary service and assistance. Our driver-guide, Pat Douglas, made the experience exceptionable. He provided an incredible amount of knowledge and humor to the trip.
Although the weather prevented us from cruising the lake, this tour was amazing. Laura was an excellent driver/guide. Luss and Aberfoyle were interesting stops. The Stirling Castle is very small but still quite interesting. The views from there were great.
Barry was excellent tour guide, very entertaining. Bit of added excitement along the way - which wasn't Barry's fault handled very well by Barry. One thing I found dissapointing, would have liked more time at Stirling Castle, not enough time to complete 45min tour. Would certainly book your tours on next visit to Edinburgh
We were in a small coach that had so many rows that there was not enough knee room for a comfortable ride - and it was a 6 hour tour. Our tour guide was Italian - he was a nice fellow but only knew what he had been taught or read in tour books. He never asked about our comfort in the bus and played music at a painfully high volume. He was asked twice to turn it down. We would not recommend Timberbush based on this experience. However, we had a great experience on Heart of Scotland tours - good equipment with a knowledgeable tour guide/driver. Just sorry we didn't realize and use them for this tour, as well.
We had a Fantastic time with Gary, our tour guide and driver. He was very knowledgeable about all the places we visited, told us fascinating stories as we drove along between stops. Lunch was great fun, eating, chatting and getting to know why each person booked the tour. Gary made the trip Fun! He told jokes, had a few sing-alongs in the van and told stories in such an entertaining way. I especially enjoyed signing along to Loch Lomond as we drove away from said place. Gary even answered all of our silly questions with such fun and wonderful wit. Our Gary went above and beyond getting us close-up to the doors and entrances to the Loch Lomond ferry, the Loch Lomond pier, that adorable little village we stopped by, Sterling Castle, etc. He knew who to ask and what to ask them in such a way that we were first in line for so many things. The van seats were comfortable and I like the way the seats towards the back were elevated so everyone had a good view. I especially enjoyed the USB plugs at our seats so we could charge our electronic devices during our journey. You never know where or when you will need one of find one when while on vacation. The pick up spot was a good location as in Scotland you never know if it will be dry or not and there were shops open for us in the area. There was a last minute road closure when we came back and Gary made sure to get us each Very close to where we wanted to be that evening. The tour exceeded our expectations. Thank you! Thank you Gary!
