John Paul was an excellent tour guide. The Isle of Skye and the Highlands are extremely beautiful. We saw so many incredible things. The scenery took my breath away!

This tour was amazing and seeing the Isle of Skye was a dream come true. Going to Loch Lomond on the way brought tears to my eyes as did Culloden and Clava Cairns. Owen was our tour guide and he told very interesting stories and kept us engaged during the trip. Our little B and B we stayed in was nice and the service there so friendly!

Our trip was totally amazing. Our tour guide, Owen was very good. He knew a lot of history that kept us entertained while traveling. He gave us just the right amount of time at each stop. We liked the small size of the tour. We were glad it wasn't full. Hope to go back soon and will book again with Owen.

Well informed and informed and knowledgeable. Made an effort to make sure everyone saw what they wanted to see and provided excellent advice on where the best spots to take pictures and to view the wonderful sights if Scotland. Even when the weather was cooperating Jim made sure we had a fantastic experience.

This tour was amazing! Loved all the sights we got to see. My only negative was that our driver drove incredibly fast through the mountains taking the turns so fast you would fall out of your seat/hit the roof of the bus with your head when you went over any type of bump in the road. We did have to catch another bus back to Glasgow at the end of our trip and the driver of that bus had his music BLARING so loud that he could not even hear the request to turn it down. I sat directly behind him and had to yell to request that he turn the music down. I also did not like that he would be scrolling through his phone while he was driving.

Gavin was knowledgable and fun. The accommodations were terrific and I loved the small group 6 and van. This was an easy and terrific way to see the Highlands.

It was a great tour,especially for someone looking to see the most famous sites in Scotland in a short time with company and a good guide.
Once you have done this tour,you will just be looking to book your next one!

The trip was wonderful but with some administrative and logistic errors. One lesson I learned from the trip is that it is better not to make any travel plan when returning either to Glasgow or Edinburgh as delays do occur due to traffic or some confusion over return time. Our tour guide had some Scottish accent and I had a hard time to understand him. But after all, we were visiting Scotland and should get a full flavor. Highland was spectacularly beautiful! No matter how many movies or internet images, it never beats to see with your own eyes. Now I start to have some understand why Scottish history had so much sad stories and why these people were so tough. The environment is so HARSH! I felt like an indoor cat in the wilderness when visiting many of the wow sights, such as the draw dropping landscapes for the 007 movie Skyfall. I was also in awe of Eilean Donan. Just breath taking. Now I start to understand why people go to the Isle of Skype. The island is just full of natural beauty everywhere. There are some famous sites that I did not see on our trip. I got attacked by midges and covered by bites at the Isle of Skye. Make sure you bring some Avon or insect repellent as I am still covered with bites. I am not a big fan for Day 3 such as Loch Ness but of course, it is so famous.

Overall the trip was great. The b and b on the first night was excellent, the one on the second night not so good. Cameron was an excellent guide and driver. A great introduction to the Highlands.

Our Guide Michael was professional and knowledgeable. The bus was over-crowded being stuck in the last row where 5 people are squished tightly together is unpleasant.
