This was an incredible tour! We saw an unbelievable amount of Scottland and #39;s sights, culture, and history. Our tour guide Andrew was a-mazing. He went out of his way to make the experience special for us. His knowledge of Scotland was matched only by his story telling prowess. A bard and a gentleman.

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent! Not sure how else to describe the wonderful 4 days I spent exploring the beautiful country of Scotland. Everything was perfect. It was probably on the best tours I've done yet...and I've done lots.

Excellent trip
Andrew was amazing and a wonderful host ,guide and raconteur
A few suggestions
1We arrived in Glasgow and took a bus to Edinburgh to join the trip only to find out we could have started in Glasgow .i reviewed the site and there was not mention of starting from Glasgow
2 the extra trips and sites were not mentioned in the itinerary and when we tried to pay by Visa we were told cash only .this should have been mentioned beforehand so we would have the correct amount
3 we thought a small group tour would have been 7--14 people but we were 26
4 we would have appreciated a brief itinerary printed for us so we would be prepared for the days activity
5 a mesh carryall on the back of the seat in front would have been helpful for storing papers and daily items
Accommodations were stellar ,meals were great
Definitely worth the money

This tour was fabulous! Our driver Tom was a wonderful person who knew so much about Scotland and was so proud of his Scottish history. He took the time to walk each person into their accommodations and ensure that they were in proper order and everyone was happy. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking to get a true taste of Scotland.

Andrew is definitely the best guide ever! Charming, knowledgeable, kind as so very funny. He made this trip just wonderful. When Andrew spoke he made Scottish history come alive. Can't say enough good things about this tour and Andrew! By the way, the sites were interesting and the accommodations were very nice as well.

The Scottish Highlands are beautiful and worth visiting, no matter what the weather... The tour and the accomodation were well organized, and our tour guide, Rob, was entertaining, knowledgeable and helpful. I had a blast :)

An excellent tour covering part of the highlands and the Isle of Skye. Our guide was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable, and provided excellent commentary. Unfortunately there was quite a bit of rain on the days that we traveled, but the guide was very flexible, varying the route to enable us to make the most of the tour depending on conditions. Would recommend this tour highly. Indeed, would recommend a longer tour if such was available and time permitted.

We had a wonderful time during our 5-day Scottish Highlands tour. The service was provided by Experience Highland in Edinburgh. Our group of 16 came from diverse backgrounds, was congenial and full of fun. The accommodation was comfortable and breakfasts provided were great. Brian was our tour leader, driver and guide. In addition to his sense of humour, knowledge on Scotland's natural history and its people(s), Brian also provides an insight into Scottish perspectives on the sites and events of Scotland. He is extremely attentive to the needs of our group and his pride and love of Scotland are evident. We have also learned much about the cultural aspects of Scotland.
