Our driver/ guide Jamie was excellent, good driver, I'm impressed with his skills on narrow roads. Information useful fun sense of humor relaxing on return trip with his selection of music. Great value for price. Wonderful sightseeing trip would do it again

This was a very long day, 12.5 hrs. Jamie was terrific and kept it moving well. You are very lucky to have such a caring, compassionate and knowledgeable guide as Jamie. The tour was fantastic, thank you Jamie you’re the best!,,

This was an awesome trip. A bus full of people affords some logistical challenges. Long bathroom lines and food lines but nothing could spoil this beautiful ride. Our driver was patient and attentive. We were so glad we only took the half hour Loch Ness boat ride and explored the castle area. The castle area was very windy but the views were worth the rain and mud. Just beautiful. The boat ride ended up being a lot of people trying to stay dry. If it was sunny it would have been great. Top of the list for us.

It was a large bus so we did not have a small group experience and I should have read this before booking. The coach guids was good and he told us bits of information all through the tour. W felt that the bus should have stopeed at Fort williams for lunch instead of where it stops since Fort williams would have had a lot more choices. In the begining the bust guide made us wait for a long time before we could board the bus inspite of coming from the other end. This made us get the seats at the last row which was not acceptable to us.However looks like the guide was a kid so we overlooked it.We loved the Urquart castle experience though. It was great!

Great tour!! Long day but well worth it. Just wish we had more time at each stop...but understand there is a schedule to keep. Our Tour guide Paul was over the top the best. His knowledge, wit, personality made the tour a definite 5 stars!!

This tour has a lot of beautiful scenery. However, it is way too rushed and crowded. The meal stops are too short. The stop has one cafe and no enough toilets. There were several other coaches at this stop and there was not enough time to get food and use the toilet. The same situation occurred at the lunch stop. If you want to do this itinerary, choose a small group tour.

Such a great trip, we were able to see everything we wanted to. Long day, but definitely worth it.

Extremely long ride with very few non-exciting stops. I expected to spend more time outside considering Scotland's majestic landscapes, but we only got to see them through the window. Even the stops that we made were for souvenir-shopping instead of walking. The only 1-hour stop at Lochness only gave options of either taking a boat or visiting a castle. Those who didn't want to do either of those had to spend that hour in a cafeteria. There should always be a third option to walk around! But the stop was made at a place where hiking route was almost impossible to find, and the driver didn't suggest anything better to do. I found one hiking route not very far using which wasn't easy to do, this should be advised by the tour driver.

This was a great tour of the highlands overall but I would try to go with a smaller tour if I were to do this again. I was disappointed we were not able to stop to see Glencoe due lack of space for the bus to park this was the part I was most looking forward to.

Excellent and inclusive tour around the Highlands. Beautiful scenery and interesting places. A bit too much sitting though, 12 hours trip is tough on your bum, so definately not suitable for kids. Our guide Patrick was great, lots of trivia, interesting and funny stories - and he drove fast, sometimes a bit too fast.
