The trip was conducted by Rabies Tour. It was the best group tour i had in my time in Scotland. Our driver guide, Nick was simply amazing! This young chap knows his stories, his landmarks and was very engaging throughout the trip. He was a very safe driver too.
We visited many places at Skye, namely Niest point, Glenn Fairy, The Quiraing mountains and many more sights. It was simply beautiful beyond words. Just dress right for the weather. Umbrellas are not that useful at skye. A windbreaker with your snow caps and waterproof clothing are definitely more useful. It will keep u dry and warm.
I stayed 2 nights at the Feochan B and B at Portree which was arranged by the tour. The hosts were very accomodating. The house was very modern and seemed newly renovated, with fresh and clean linen to sleep on.
I enjoyed the tour very much. 3 days was just too short on Skye.

OMG I got to see the sites of Outlander. Castles, stones, and Falkland where the story started besides other sites in Scotland. Would absolutely recommend and would do again. Our driver Andrew was excellent telling us stories, playing Scottish music, telling jokes and giving us great historical information. Andrew your a doll!!!! And Skye is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Nothing beats the Highlands---so clean, fresh, and wonderful people. Stayed at a wonderful B and B---owners were accommodating, room was clean and comfortable and breakfast was fantastic.

Great tour with Jude - just sorry we did get lots of rain on day we visited Neist Point!! Definately bring rain SUIT for those days but getting it on and off with small comfy bus could be tricky. Wonderful tales and photo stops.

This trip was the highlight of our 3 weeks in the UK. Our tour guide, Nick was amazing and made our trip so interesting and fun. He started by asking what each of us hoped to see and then customized the trip to make sure our wishes were met. The bed and breakfast we stayed in was amazing -so welcoming and comfortable. Do not miss this opportunity to see the most beautiful area of Scotland! Our day at the Fairy Pools, the picnic on the shore and the Fairy Glen visit were highlights. We would go again if we ever return.

There aren't enough stars for this tour! James, our tour guide was informed, helpful, and a delight to tour with. A million stars just for James!! He kept the tour interesting with fun stories, anecdotes and a great playlist. I enjoyed the loose, easygoing nature of the trip - decisions for stops were often made just in time to turn off the road! For those who've been on big tours with strict, nearly impossible time-tables understand the frustration of feeling pressed for time and often a bit restricted in movement. This tour was totally different. James would often make a stop just because he knew how much we liked cows, or waterfalls, or whisky! The tour was a wonder at every turn with not a moment of boredom. We had tons of photo stops, plenty of bathroom breaks and good food everywhere we went. Viator booked us into a very sweet B and B, where we were well looked after. Very Highly recommended indeed!

I CANNOT GIVE THIS TOUR ENOUGH STARS! Nicky, our tour guide was THE BEST! Honestly, you can't go to the Highlands and up to Skye without him. He knows all the facts, tells really awesome stories that keep you interested and awake, even when you're exhausted from jetlag, and knows all the good stops to stop and take in the views.

The itinerary was perfect, day 1's drive up to the Highlands was beautiful, full of picture perfect stops. Day 2 on the Isle of Skye was my absolute favorite day on our whole entire 2 week trip. We saw sights that I wish I could describe, from Neist Point to the Faerie Glen to Kilt Rock, it was all incredibly memorable. When we went in early September, everything was so beautifully green--I'm not sure if it's like that all year round, but it was the perfect time to go. I think we also got incredibly lucky because we got no rain on any of our stops, but I do think it's unlikely to get no rain. Day 3, was a more relaxed day, as the itinerary was less packed as we made our way back to Edinburgh, but it was still incredibly enjoyable. Do yourself a favor and TAKE THIS TOUR!

We both really enjoyed our, three day tour, Grant was our driver and tour guide, he was fantastic.
He was really proud of his Scottish heritage and had a really great knowledge of Scotland's past history.
The best part of the tour was when Grant took us out to the other side of Skye, beautiful day and great scenery.

Grant would be the best tour guide we have ever had, and we have done dozens of tours around the world.

Say hello to Grant for us!

Amazing and beautiful tour! Our guide was Gail and she was the best! Excellent story teller, singer, and always had interesting information about each of the sites we visited, I believe she said she was a history major, so she knows her stuff! I would recommend this tour to anyone looking for a worthwhile visit to Skye. Our accommodations at the Caledonian B and B were comfy, our hosts were lovely, and the include breakfast was delicious! The mini bus was super comfortable with huge windows so we had amazing views of the beautiful countryside. Each location, from lochs to castles, were all fantastic, beautiful scenery, friendly people, and loads of places for pictures!
