Love the tour and love the whole highland experience which the scenery are gorgeous! Howard lead a good tour and bring us to a perfect view for viewing the Hogwarts Express!
It was a nice tour. Michael, our driver was cool.
The stops in Dunkeld, Hermitage, Newmore and culloden were good. We also got a couple of stops in between like the highlands border and Loch Ness for photos until we reach the absolutely amazing Fort Augustus, located at the bottom of Loch Ness. Be aware that the bus does not stop in Inverness, it just goes through it. I think they should make some time, at least 30 minutes to include a photo stop there.
Oaklands Bed and Breakfast in Fort Augustus was amazing. The hosts were a lovely elder couple.
The second day was really good. We went to Fort William to take the Jacobite train. Although it only reached Glenfinnan because the rail was closed due to some mud collapse, it was a nice ride. The viaduct is beautiful. Then we had lunch in Glencoe, an amazing valley.
HE was kind to take us to Doune Castle as a way to replace the time gap in the Jacobite train. It's a cool castle. Then we got two photo stops in Stirling Castle and Falkir before heading back to Edinburgh.
Great tour! Definitely brings you to places that and #39;s hard to get to unless you drive yourself! Guide was extremely friendly and helpful. The hogwart express was awesome - a must for Harry Potter fans!
Great tour, would definitely recommend!
Our guide John Paul was excellent and provided entertaining commentary on the sights and history of Scotland. The scenery was utterly gorgeous and of course the steam train ride capped it all off in a grand way!
This tour was amazing!
We had a great trip. Michael was a superb group leader, stopping at many scenic spots for us to take photos. And, he is a great story teller! So, the history was interesting and the scenery was spectacular.
It was amazing. We had so much fun. We were expecting a full 2 day tour on the train but it was actually a bus tour for the 1st day and the Hogwarts train for the 2nd day. Our tour guide was funny, entertaining and knowledgeable. The B and B we stayed at was one of the best we had stayed in during our entire trip. I would definately recommend this tour.
Gary, our tour guide, was a delight! He ensured everyone's needs were met and we were safe as a group. The Jacobite tour visited several Outlander sights, drove through the beautiful Highlands, and stopped often for photo opportunities. We chose the option of a hotel stay and was not disappointed as our room overlooked Loch Ness. The train was nice, however, I would recommend when choosing a seat you choose one on the side of the platform. We expected the train to turn around for the return trip where we would have an opportunity for photos. The view from our side of the train was less picturesque.
A GREAT TOUR, WILL RECOMMEND IT. JUST NEEDED MORE TIME FOR PICTURES OF THE BRIDGE.
