Really excellent tour! I would have loved a bit more historical commentary, but otherwise, the trip was fabulous. Chris was very accommodating and knowledgeable. He runs a tight ship, but does it with a smile - we made it to all our destinations on time and even had time to stop off at a few great photo opportunities to stretch our legs now and then. I don't think we were ever confined to the coach for more than an hour. We saw beautiful locations, admission to all the attractions went without any hiccups. All we had to do was sit back and enjoy the experience. Would definitely do a tour with Highland Experience again!

Great tour! You get a good amount of history and pop culture knowledge about Scotland. Doing the train was a great highlight. Loch Ness is beautiful as well.

This trip was amazing! The scenery spectacular! Great group of people and our guide, John Paul made the whole trip. He was extremely informative and made the whole experience so much more enjoyable. A lovely, funny man.

Possibly one of my most favourite tour experiences in Scotland. Our guide, Martin, was very knowledgeable about the areas we visited. I loved the ride on the train, and I am a big HP fan so it was pretty awesome! I did a one hour boat tour in Mallaig which was amazing as well. Colloden also gave me the shivers but was worth it. Loved the night I spent in Fort Augustus, especially because I'd been in city lodgings the whole time. However, it was a bit scary walking back to the B and B that night because there were barely any lights in the little town and my B and B was not close to the town centre. But this just made it all the more fun. Loved Loch Ness!! Loved everything - a great experience which I highly recommend.

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!

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!

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.

Fantastic excursion through some gorgeous and historically-significant countryside. I would recommend this trip without hesitation. Our guide, Frank, was perfect. He knew when to share information, put on music, or just let us chill. He was excellent and always let us know what was coming up, what to look for, and how the day was going to proceed.

The size of the tour was perfect - not too many people, not too few. The B and B I stayed in was excellent. Not only did we get to see and do everything that was on the tour, but our guide added in a few things like a very short side trip to some standing stones, which is something I've always wanted to see. The guide, Frank, was very knowledgable about the Jacobite era of history. For me, seeing the standing stones, spending time on the Culloden battlefield, and riding on the Hogwarts train were the best parts.

This was the highlight of our time in the UK! Scotland is a beautiful country. The tour was made awesome by our tour guide, Mark! Complete with kilt, charm and humour. He was knowledgeable about the places and sights we saw. This happened to be our last tour of our stay and it was the best. So relaxing! We saw Loch Lomond, Loch Ness, Culloden (battlefield), a stay in Fort William (Stobahn B and B), topped off by the train ride! I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to see Scotland!!

Our tour guide, Mike, was simply outstanding. We had not done our research reading before we went so Mike's commentary was fascinating ( and validating) that we had booked the right tour. Being rabid Harry Potter fans (my friend and I are elementary school teachers) we were snapping photos from the very beginning of the "Harry Potter Hogwart's Bridge!" It was even a bigger thrill to see the people who had hiked out to the bridge tressle to take a photo of the train from above! The group was very diverse, but appreciated the attention from our tour guide. Overnighting in our Bread and Breakfast was a true delight. He was running the B and B alone, but he was cordial and attentive. There were 7 of us staying ther,e and it was great fun! I have traveled a great deal, and I was truly impressed with the people, the country, the history, and the entire experience. Being from Alaska, I truly appreciate the diverse experience of Scotland. Truly a delight!

I am in love! Mark was awesome. Full of information, quirky sense of humor, and very accommodating.

This tour was one of the best I've been on while traveling through the UK. I highly recommend it.

Lovely experience. We booked this trip as part of UK tour mainly for our 10 year old who is a Harry Potter fan. There was much more. Beautiful scenery, history of Scotland and the Jacobite uprisings, a few short hikes through the glens and the hermitage, loch ness and much more. Our tour guide Howard was knowledgeable, funny and friendly. He was quite spirited and took us on short hikes during the trip, which my son and I enjoyed very much. Good walking shoes and a rain jacket come in handy. We had wonderful company in the coach. The Hogwarts express runs from Fort William to Mallaig which is a port town close to the Isle of Skye. There was an option to go seal watching during lunch hour in Mallaig. We chose to stay in the village. There is not too much to do in the town for children other than a nice lunch. There is a small art gallery, museum and a book store.
The Hogwarts train ride was definitely the highlight. Our hike up to the viewpoint in Glenfinnan to watch the train chug along the via-duct was the best part.
There were quite a few children and Harry Potter fans on the trip which made it entertaining for the children. The history, hiking and scenery was quite engaging to the adults.
Our B and B in Fort William was nice and the hostess really lovely. However , if we had the option, I would have preferred to stay at accomodation on the loch ness. Although we stopped at the loch ness, a short stop at the lochness store would have been interesting.
Definitely recommend to both families and solo traverlers.

What an exciting adventure in the Highlands! Our tour bus driver, Mike, was very informative and extremely patient with less than desirable members on our tour. The Jacobite Hogwarts Express was fun and the scenery was picture book perfect! The B and B I stayed in at Fort William, was very clean and the breakfast was yummy! The weather also cooperated with our tour and it was excellent.
