Our tour guide Doug is was fantastic. Great sense of humor and gave us a great historical background of Scotland. The Highlands are beautiful and really worth seeing. We were picked up and dropped off at a convenient location to where we were staying. Really a great day.

Our tour guide Dougie was a riot. He provided an impressive amount of Scottish history as we drove north from Edinburgh to the Highlands. He was funny and informative and when I thought I didn't have enough cash for the Loch Ness cruise, he offered to pay for it himself and asked me to pay him back later. I certainly didn't expect that and fortunately I had enough cash to make it work. It's a long day but totally worth it. The visit to Glencoe, halfway to Loch Ness, is worth the cost of the trip. The view of the Scottish Highlands that you'll get in Glencoe is simply breathtaking.

Fantastic tour. Dougie really knew his history and added huge insight to areas we travelled through.
I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone as it was worth every cent.

Wonderful day! Guide was very knowledgable of the area and added to the experience by playing music at some points during the trip that really went with the scenery. Highly recommend.

It was excellent. It was my fault that I misunderstood the pick up rules. Although there were noisy passengers in front of us we could have not changed that. But the guide did an excellent job re telling all the information.

Because of the blizzard, we are not able to go to Loch Ness and the company offered us another tour to Loch Lomond.
The day before they tried many ways to contact us to inform us of the change even by informing our hotel, very thoughtful company.
The tour guide have a good sense of humour, played some interesting scottish song and the view along the way is amazing.
If given a chance, i will prefer to go to Loch Ness because Loch Lomond tour during winter is a little boring.
The company gave us a refund as our tour got cut short. I will definitely engage in this tour company if i will ever go back to Edinburgh for a tour.
