We really enjoyed seeing these interesting places. Tour guide was knowledgable and friendly. It’s a long day but well worth it. The only negative is we got rubbish seats on the bus. We arrived 20 minutes before tour left and were last of 16 people to board the bus. Which meant we had to sit at the back of the bus in a row of four which was a serious squash and meant we were all uncomfortable. The seats are child sized. We would definitely book again, but next time arrive an hour early and try to board bus in time to get either single or a pairs seat.
Gary, our tour guide, had us laughing the whole way. Very informative as well. The stops were a great mix with the right amount of time at each. Including a lunch stop in a tiny village with great homemade meat pies and sausage rolls, or u could have gone to the pub for lunch there. The lake was beautiful and we did a little hike around then up to a vista point. Stirling Castle was interesting and good to see. The distillery was perfect. A little intro, a couple tastes (if you add it) and a short but interesting tour of the process. Delicious white chocolate tablets in the gift shop. Highly recommend the excursion.
The driver (Rory) was great, told stories and made an extra stop at the bridges for photos. He kept us on track even though we had a couple stops take long.Sterling castle is less crowded than Edinburgh and we had plenty of time. Loch lomand is beautiful and the distillery was perfect!!
Overall the tour was ok, not not great. Sterling Castle visit was good with enough time.
Couldn't get enough time at Loch Lomond for the usual Cruise through the Loch.
Visit to Distillery was also good.
The guide/driver was quite friendly but should have given more information about the various locations. He missed to give lots of information of major landmarks.
a very interesting day out from Edinburgh , are guide was very good , are first stop was the stunning Stirling castle , where we were given a free tour which was very interesting
after a lunch break we were taken to see loch Lomond
but my highlight of the tour was the Glengoyne distillery tour , it was the first time I had been to a whisky distillery , and was explained how the whisky is made starting from the barley grains, and also learnt the difference between blended and single malt
also got try try some great whisky
I would recommend this tour while in Edinburgh
Our driver Gary was a recent hire and did a great job. The tour was well paced for all participants. I would have preferred a docent or guide in some places but we attached ourselves to a random group. The Glengoy e distillery was a treat, both from the whisky and our hosts. Humor and love of country were evident from everyone.. Highly recommended!
Our guide was very knowledgeable but a little formal maybe??
Stirling Castle was good but the next stop we felt was tacky
We saw a little of Loch Lomond but all too briefly!
The distillery tour was quite good but our guide was new so had to keep
saying I will check that
But the most annoying thing was that we were booked in to a show at 7pm and the bus tour should
have finished at 6pm but the guide allowed us all to look at the Shire Horses when we just di not
And so our evening was VERY stressed!!!!!
Your guide Barney was great! He was full of fun facts and kept the drive very interesting. The time spent at each of the stops was the perfect amount. And ending with the very interesting whiskey tour topped off the day perfectly. We found it very refreshing to get out of the City and see the countryside for awhile. Well worth the money!
