The drive itself was amazing. Got to see some beautiful countryside. Our guide, however, was just not as wonderful. Limited information, she seemed to take her cues from us, rather than what we were driving through. It may just be that she was young and needs some seasoning. The trip was definitely worth it, though
Great tour with Malcolm. Informative, good humoured and tolerant of a mobility restricted passenger! The drive was through some spectacular countryside and the weather was great. Regular stops for photography - and comfort were made. Explanations of the areas travelled through were concise and helpful. Music choice on the way back was quite relaxing.
This was a fantastic tour. Malcolm was an excellent tour guide, with a wonderful mix of humour, history, and information about the region, in a relaxed and approachable manner. The tour group was a nice size - about 12 people - with a good mix of people. We were reasonably lucky with the weather too though it was very chilly, even in June!. Duncansby Head was spectacular and it was great to have a photo by the John O'Groats sign!
Sadly we had terrible weather for this day tour - however - that is not the fault of the Tour! You get that in Scotland! Visiting John O'Groats had been on our "bucket list" for a while having done Lands End a few years ago! When we arrived at John O'Groats it was pouring down and freezing - however - we were on a mission to get our photo taken at the "Sign" which says you are "here" at the most northern tip. To our disappointment and frustration we found that the pole was there but not the sign! We went to the kiosk and they explained that you had to pay a fee for the sign to be up for your photo to be taken! This privilege had to be prearranged with a Photography Company that apparently had the "rights" to this tourist attraction. We were absolutely gobsmacked and appalled that this simple tourist attraction of a "sign" was owned and obviously had been exploited over many years! Also we were quite annoyed that we were not advised of this before taking the tour! Our Tour guide claimed no knowledge either (yeah right). By the time we arrived at Duncansby Heads it really was blowing a gale. A few of the braver tourists did the trek with the Guide and came back soaking wet and advised that they could not quite see the Puffins as they were so far away. In summary we found the whole day quite disappointing. Our guide also lacked a bit of personality which didn't add to the day! If you have a car - do it yourself and save your money.
