Chris provided us with a “once in a lifetime” day-trip. We planned this Highlands Tour as a holiday gift to ourselves. Chris gave us a detailed, thorough and exciting history of Scotland. What a truly wonderful day.

We felt very fortunate to have Will as our guide to see and experience this tour of the central highlands. He was very helpful beforehand in suggesting the newish Bannockburn Experience. This interactive activity enabled all of our family of 4 to learn the background and actors in the Battle of Bannockburn and then to participate in a digital re-enactments of the Battle, with different family members on opposite sides. Prior to that we stopped at the foot of the hill below Stirling Castle and Will took a nice family picture for us.From there it was on to Callendar and a stop at Mohr Bread for scrumptious fare that included meat pies, bridies, macaroni and cheese pies, apple turnovers and eclairs! From there we made our way to the gravesite of Rob Roy (with a stop by a loch for some trick panoramic photography!). On then to an adventurous climb for a stunning view over Loch Voil at the MacLaren Clan gathering spot. For those not up to the climb, there was a comfy seat and friendly company to be had at a local pub.Will is a veritable treasure trove of historical information. We appreciated learning whilst taking in the beauty of the area. Knowing I was keen to see a Highland “coo”, we made a quick stop to do so and lastly before dropping us off at Scran and Scallie for dinner, Will took us by Dean Village for more photos and to tell us about that area. It was a wonderful day with good fun had by all and we highly recommend this tour! (Cheers, Will!)

I prefer off the beaten path experiences and sites. From the outset, Will was communicative, responsive, and really heard what I had to say. On a couple of our stops, I am confident in saying I was the only tourist there. Great conversation, terrific sites, It went exactly as I was hoping. Very highly recommended.

Our favorite tour of our 3 week holiday. We chose the eastern highlands because we wanted to see St Andrews. Chris was a perfect guide mixing humor, history and hidden gems of each area. St. Andrews was beautiful, as well as the surrounding area. We had a mix of driving and walking. We had the best and freshest fish and chips in Scotland. A great day. Thanks again Chris.

Our tour guide, Moira, took our requests and put together a customized tour. She planned the day perfectly, found a terrific pub for lunch, was interesting and knowledgeable. A real highlight in our vacation. Worth every penny!

This tour was OUTSTANDING and worth every penny! Will was so entertaining, knowledgeable, and just a pleasure to get to know during our day together. He peppered the day with little known sites, fun facts and surprised us with a few Game of Thrones and Outlander locations! When in Scotland again...and we will be...I will certainly be contacting Will!

Our tour guide Chris was fantastic! He was knowledgeable, responsive and just a pleasure to be with for 9 hours! I really appreciated his phone call the day before to discuss our options. He took us to a fantastic restaurant for lunch in the middle of the tour. We are a family of four kids ages 18 and 19 from the Bay Area. It was our first time using Viator and we're usually very picky. The day was fantastic, we know and understand more of the history of Scotland. Thanks Chris and we will definitely be using you guys and Viator again-
