Tony was an excellent guide! Super knowledgeable and funny to boot. The weather left quite a bit to be desired but the experience of the games along with the bus ride with historical information interspersed with humor more than made up for it! Highly recommended to all!

How fun!!! I had such an amazing time on this trip! The Queen even came! Dougie was our tour guide and quite awesome. I think the only thing I didn't realize is that you have to pay for seats to sit down close to the action. As a photographer, this frustrated me but it ended up alright! REALLY long day, so be prepared!
Fantastic! the most impressive part: the tour guide! She was amazing! Good mood, great stories and historic details. I loved it all! Wonderful day!
Excellent guide who gave us very good information and interesting. Loved seeing the Highland Games in Scotland as my family had attended the Highland Games in Los Angeles for 30 years. A Must for visiting Scotland to walk around with the locals and enjoy the Games tradition.
We found the day to be perfect even though we had a break down on the way back.
The Games were amazing and there was no tourist theme to them at all - it was just pure Scottish traditional that we were fortunate enough to witness.
Our guide was first class- he was extremely knowledgable and funny
Great day at the Luss Games. Also stops at several interesting sites on the way to the games. Great driver who was entertaining and informative (Eoghain). Had a slight issue with the bus on the way home, which was handled very professionally and timely. Overall, a great day.
This was a fantastic day trip and I would highly recommend it
The weather :)
The Tour Guide - entertaining and informative
Ease of booking and location on Royal Mile (very helpful and friendly staff)
I think this is a unique experience and it an attraction to go when you're in Scotland. Also, me and my wife were lucky to have a nice weather (mostly sunny with a shower passing by) and very friendly people. We really enjoyed our time in Edinburgh and I wish we had more time for other attractions and to travel to other areas in Scotland - more to North or West... I mean.. more to the Highlands.
BTW... the Military Tattoo was GREAT!
