This is a great tour and a great way to see the highlands! The guest houses were great as well. Everything was well organized and professional. We had a great time!
Great trip and must congratulate Jamie and Highland tours for this excellent package. Great sites visited and the excellent knowledge of Jamie brought each to life in a historical sense or visionary picture. From Oban to Inverness a pictorial delight with lochs, mountain ranges, castles, great music in the evening and food. A tour must
This tour was spectacular. Our guide, Joe, was a true Highlander. He took us to some great places and told some wonderful stories. I would definitely do this tour again. The only thing I could do without was LochNess. It was a bit of a tourist trap but still fun. LOVE LOVE LOVE Skye. Our weather was amazing. I am ready to back.
Absolutely amazing trip. Loved the tour and our tour director was fantastic. Definitely go on this tour!!
A wonderful trip: outstanding scenery, outstanding guide thanks Andy:-, fascinating history and great company. Would go again tomorrow if we could!!
We went with Hghland tours 5HEX from September 7th-11th. It was most wonderful vacation we ever had.Our tour guide Jamiewas superb. He was so energetic and courteous and great story teller that he kept us entertained all day every day. I wish we could get more time in Oban to stay.Thnx. Manjusri Majumdar.
Great journey...Nick, our guide, was very informative, full of stories about each area. The accommodations were excellent. Not having to drive...a blessing! The train ride is a train ride...not a big deal, but getting to Portree, Oban, Inverness, Loch Ness, Culloden...all amazing. We all enjoyed it tremendously!
Great! Had a wonderful time and Nick took great care of us all!
This tour formed part of a birthday present from my family and I could not have wished for a better present. My daughter accompanied me on the tour and we both thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The weather performed admirably. We had hot sunny weather for the entire 5 days apparently a rarity in Scotland! and this made the experience that much more enjoyable.
The tour arrangements were excellent. We drove through areas of magnificent scenery. At the various point of interest stops ample time was allowed for people to explore and take in the sights.
The accommodation arranged for the overnight stops was of a high standard. We selected the B and B option and were very happy with the comfort and quality of the food. The B and Bs were also conveniently located close to the town/village centers.
Andy our guide was tremendous. His joking banter kept us amused and his knowledge of the areas we travelled through and points of interest we stopped at was extensive. This together with his history lessons coloured with bits and pieces of folklore added to the enjoyment of the experience.
Andy had the ability to take a busload of strangers and convert them into friends. He also managed to find some degree of personal connection to Scotland for members of the tour party. These actions greatly enhanced the tour for us.
The highlight of the tour for us was our attendance at the Skipinnish Ceilidh during our overnight stop in Oban. Although this was an evening activity and not part of the official tour itinerary our attendance was based on a recommendation from Andy. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening and got quite caught up in the spirit of things. We did not realize there was so much Gallic blood in us!
We would highly recommend this tour to anyone considering visiting the Highlands of Scotland.
This tour was really great and truly showed the beauty of Scotland. Our driver Andy was incredibly funny and knowledgeable and went out of his way to make sure we saw everything we possibly could so we wouldn't miss out. The b and b in Oban was just lovely and all had very nice breakfast.
