The highlands day tour was not quite as advertised. Rather than being in a small minivan, we were in a large tourist bus with Graham as the tour guide.
That having been said, the tour was an excellent one, and well worth the time. The stop at the Glenturret Distillery makers of The Famous Grouse provided a fascinating and informative tour of the distillery itself. The distillery tour allowed us to see the key ingredients in scotch whiskey and to see the various steps of the distillation process in action. This one is not to be missed if one is interested in how scotch whiskey is made.
The stop at the Wallace Monument was worthwhile as well, but we appreciated the recommendation too not bother with entering he monument. Just climbing the hill provided a sufficient lookout over the battleground and across to Stirling Castle.
The highlight of this tour was the Edinburgh Military Tattoo in Edinburgh Castle! We saw this on the last performance. Very impressive! And the Saturday events are capped with a wonderful fireworks display. Do not miss this one!
This tour was the highlight of our Scotland trip. While we drove through the beautiful countryside, our driver/tour guide, Ben, played wonderful modern and traditional Scottish tunes in between giving us the lowdown on Scottish history. The distillery tour was fascinating and we appreciated the chances to stretch our legs with walks at the Hermitage and in a little village. We had great seats for the Tattoo which was spectacular. I highly recommend this tour as a way to see a lot of Scotland in one day.
Our trip was fantastic and our guide, Graham was so nice and informative. Honestly, it was the highlight of our trip to Edinburgh. The tattoo was certainly awe inspiring, but our guide during the day trip was as good as they get.
Guide Yvonne made the trip a memorable experience. Loved the whiskey tour. Great day, great way to see the sights.
Fantastic guides with lots of knowledge plus good humour to go with it. The Grouse distillery trip was so interesting. The walk in the highlands was beautiful and relaxed as well. The tattoo was stunning. An unforgettable experience. In all, this was a brilliant day and evening out. Thanks to the organisers.
The day trip was excellent way to see the countryside, the whiskey tour was fun, and the Military Tattoo and fireworks were spectacular. A must do!
I gave this tour to my mother and my mom just LOVED it!!!
Please thank Dave the guide for a most wonderful experience!
This was a really fun tour. Dougie was our guide. Full of knowledge and very personable! The Hermitage was beautiful and it was nice to take a nature walk in the middle of our 8 day trip which included a lot of running around. Distillery tour was interesting even though I do not drink whiskey. But the highlight was of course, the military tattoo. If you are in Edinburgh during the festival, this is a must do. Simply stunning!
Baby Jamie was a terrific guide and made our tour a fantastic experience. Great sights, just enough commentary and info and an all around fun person to spend the day with!
Covered so much in one day , our guide was fantastic and added great commentary
