It was wonderful and our guide Dougie was amazing and had so much information and facts about Scotland and the Highlands. It's a great tour and I would recommend it to anyone interested in seeing the Highlands and in Scottish history!
Awesome tour. Driver Dougie was wonderful very informative about the areas and history.
Thank You .
My sister and I took this trip from Edinburgh. We were picked up on time from the hotel we thought that the tour was well paced, with plenty of time at each stop the boat cruise on Loch Lomond was definitely a highlight and our driver was friendly and informative. This is our second Viator tour, and both have been outstanding.
Great and beautiful trip. Boat ride was amazing tour guide very informative.
We took the Loch Lomond/Stirling Castle tour in early June and we had a wonderful time mostly because our driver and tour guide Brian was just wonderful. He was an excellent driver, extremely knowledgable, had and great sense of humor and remained extremely patient with not 1 but two obnoxiously rude sets of fellow travelers on the tour. We had a wonderful adventurous day on this tour. Loch Lomond was just beautiful and we loved the cruise. Our stop in Aberfoyle was a great way to spend lunch and time off on our own and Stirling Castle was the highlight of the tour.
Value for $. Driver cum guide was informative. Allow yourself more time at the Stirling Castle n you can skip Edinburgh Castle.
Yes was a good tour, plenty of stops, good boat trip on the Loch, but was a little upset two of our group couldn't make it, and we couldn't get any of our money back
The tour was good. But the guide was not as good as what I expected.
We expected to have a great experience based on previous reviews, however we ended up being very disappointed in this tour. The only positive thing we can say is the cruise on Loch Lomond was nice to take. The bus driver got lost during the tour of the national park and we got behind by nearly an hour which impacted our afternoon significantly. Lots of risky driving to try and make up for the time lost but all that did was cause anxiety and concern. We did not pass by Castle Doune as promised or at least it wasn't pointed out and that was a highlight for us for booking this trip. We had less than an hour to tour Stirling Castle which was a huge disappointment to us. The tour guide blamed a family that took too long for lunch but getting lost in the national park was what should have been blamed the most. The entrance fee to Stirling Castle is a bit steep and the castle definitely deserved a much longer visit. The people at the ticket office commented that it was quite a shame we were brought there by Gray Line and given less than an hour to see the site. Plenty to do in the historic section of Stirling for those that don't want to visit the castle but with only an hour before shops closed up, others were expressing their disappointment in the need to rush through. Also, when we returned to Edinburgh we were dropped off on the Royal Mile and had to walk to our hotel which was about a 30 minute walk away. Apparently the rules that apply to bus drivers limit the time they can drive, but this was a considerable walk and not something we were prepared for. We knew we weren't being dropped off where we were picked up but a 30 minute walk away was outrageous in our opinion. Very disappointed in the overall experience and the driver's lack of knowledge of the roads in the park.
