You're not going to believe the beauty and 'interesting' you'll see on this tour. It's the people, the lakes, the bays, sheep, cows and deer, that makes this tour so special. This is a bespoke tour. Bespoke means the itinerary is flexible. Your local guide has lived in the area for 45 years. 25 years as a driver / guide. Reviews are 5/5 because of the flexibility this tour offers and the experience of your local guide. Yes, we have a plan so you get back to your ship on time but everything else is decided by you and your expert guide on the day. There's no rush like many other tours. We say this is a 7.5 hour tour but if time allows it might just as easily be 8 hours, just so you experience all you want. This private tour has a number of recommended easily added 'options'. We'll have time for just ONE of these options on this fabulous day away. Book now! * Guides are licensed and have passed all Police checks.
