This was exactly what we were hoping for! This tour took the guesswork out of the planning. It offered 2 days of seamless sightseeing. Our guide, Euan, was knowledgeable and easy going. Wonderful time!

It was an amazing tour, it totally cost every pound. Paul the guide was very relaxed and really leave us enjoy every place and always asked the whole group if we wanted to spend more or less time in each place. About the tour, it was what I really expected, saw many beautiful and interesting things and also learned a lot about it. Totally recommended tour! I would tell my friends for sure.

This tour was just great! Our driver/tour guide Andy was funny and full of so much knowledge. The stops were beautiful and Andy added in some extra stops because the weather was great. The B and B was lovely and reasonably priced. It was far nicer than some of the hotels I've stayed in on my trip.

Tour was wonderful. Alan our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history and all the places we went. I loved how passionate he was about his country. I would recommend him as your guide. He made our trip great even though we had lots of rain.

Very interesting tour with Allen, our driver and tour guide, being a great story teller. Stops at Culloden, Doune Castle and the Clava Cairns were noteworthy. Allen actually noticed that I had a wee bit of a mobility issue although did not require any special assistance and parked the van at handicapped spots a few times for added convenience. Thanks, Allen. Scotland is such a beautiful country, 2 days were hardly enough to skim the surface but Allen did his best to give us a very good sense of the place, its history, people and above all its heart and soul. Great experience.

Wonderful tour!!! Our driver and tour guide, Paul MacIntosh, was very knowledgeable and fun. We highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn and see this very beautiful part of Scotland. We loved our overnight hotel and the choice of side trips and walks when off the bus. The bus was quite comfortable and our group was great! This will be the company we go to for tours on our next trip to Scotland!

So happy we booked this tour. Our guide was Alan, and he was superb in his knowledge of history. He had a great sense of humor and I loved his music. He made every stop interesting historically, and he has great pride in his country. We chose the hotel option, and it was beautiful, right on the river. The sights are just breathtaking. Don't miss this tour!

In the 3 week vacation my daughter and I took, this tour was the highlight. There were only 8 women and our outstanding guide, Paul. We had so much fun, saw so many sights, and learned alot of history. The countryside is gorgeous. We had some rain, but it was Scotland.

Great trip with good educational history of Scotland. Our guide had excelent command of the history of Scotland and showed us many out of the way sites. I would rate him a five if he had better music to share on the trip. Should have played more of the Scot highlander tunes on this trip.

Danny was our guide and he did a splendid job. Gave us loads of information on the history of Scotland and made the trip most enjoyable. We stayed overnight in Inverness at a beautiful B and B. Culloden Battlefield was the highlight, eerie and serene at the same time. A must see!
