This was such a great day! Charlie was a great guide and we had a fantastic time going through Luss, Oban, and Glencoe! I went in the dead of winter and it was still spectacular, so rain or shine or sleet or fog as it were, you cannot go wrong with this day trip!

My friend and I did this trip in December and we both loved it. Andy our driver was informative, friendly and great company. We visited Luss at Loch Lommond and had time to take photos. We also went to Glencoe during which was very snowy and cold but the scenery was fantastic. We visited churches, saw castles and was given lots of opportunity to take photos. One of the highlights for me was when Andy took us down a track and we were greeted by lots of deer that came right up to us. We had the opportunity to feed them as they ate out of our hands! great photo shots!! All in all this was a fantastic trip, well worth the money with a great guide in Andy. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone in winter and in summer

This is the best tour ever to see all the highlights of Scotland.
We found our meeting place pretty easily and the bus we were in was very comfortable.
Our tour guide was Callum and he was excellent. Being from Scotland he was full of knowledge and history. He kept us entertained with stories of Scotland throughout the trip.
The tour began with a short stop in Loch Lomond. Gorgeous small town - only regret was I wish we had more time to explore there.
We stopped for lunch in Oban - again wish for more time to explore this cute seaside town. Callum shared with us his favorite seafood restaurant and it did not disappoint!
Inveraray Castle was our next stop and it is gorgeous!! Spend the extra money to explore inside the castle it is gorgeous.
Our bus tour through the highlands was beautiful - we were lucky to have along with us on the tour a gentleman who was in his highland wear and brought along his bagpipes. His dream was to play bagpipes in the highlands and it made our dream of Scotland complete as well.
We went as a family with 2 kids 16 and 12. They loved the tour but I would not suggest it for kids younger as it is a long day.
Thank you Viator for another fabulous tour that made our Scotland adventure a success!!!

This tour was really good! After we had seen the have to sights on a previous Scotland trip, this was a nice one to take and see the sights not so popular. My husband really enjoyed the fishing town of Oban, lots of shops and seafood. Glencoe is always incredible, however we pretty much just drove through it, took some pictures, and continued on. Inverrary castle was also a treat as my husband has Campbell ancestors so getting to see the current seat of the Campbell clan was really neat. Entrance to the castle is extra , so if you don't want to go in, the small village is a few minutes walk down the road. Our driver, Callum, was excellent. He was so efficient we were able to stop off briefly at a few more castles along the way for pictures. He was funny and really could handle the terrifying! Scottish highland roads!

The tour of Oban, Glencoe, and Inverrary Castle was great. The roads were scary, though, getting by the big buses. All part of the experience. I was surprised at how much water was in Scotland.

Delightful all-day excursion, including stop at active residential castle entry fee extra. Knowledgeable guide/driver. Local man with interesting background and local lure. Loch Lomand is as beautiful as they say. As with most such tours, not enough time to take it all in. One problem was that even though we had booked over a month in advance, and had received confirmation from Viator, the bus/tour company did not have us down for May 2, 2017. The driver called his office which said we were paid for May 5. Lucky I brought the printout of our email confirmation, and lucky, too, that there was room on the bus. May 5th we were back in the States!

Fully enjoyed our trip with Callum-he was knowledgeable and friendly. We were lucky to have a small group on the day we went and Callum's historical knowledge only enhanced the beauty of the Scottish countryside.

We had a very pleasant day. The scenery is beautiful and wild. Peter, our guide and driver was the perfect host and gave us very good tips of what to see / visit or where to eat. We had the best fish and chips ever in Oban. Booking was reliable and rapid.
I would highly recommend anyone to take such tours in Scotland!
Thank you!

The tour was great! Our driver Hamish was extremely knowledgeable and kind. The only advice I would give is to bring change(coins) with you. There is a charge to use the restroom at the first stop!

Great driver-guide who truly appreciated the environment, history and geography of the area. A long day but there was time to explore Oban, Inveraray and Luss, as well as many stops to take in the breathtaking views. A terrific tour.

Amazing tour, Stephen was a great tour guide. It's great value day out from the city in some stunning scenery of lochs and castles and Oban is a fabulous fishing town. If feeling fit take the walk/steps up to McCaigs Tower for fanastic views over the bay. Fish and Chips is another great experience in Oban, some of the best I have ever had. Don't fret over the weather, as long as visibility is good, you will have some views that just take your breath away and if Stephen is driving, you may get some goose pimple moments when he plays scottlish music at just right moment, for instance Amazing Grace just as we are driving through a beautiful Glen with mountain ridges aside you. This tour reminds how beautiful Scotland is. Great value

It was an awesome experience! Thanks Stephen for being an excellent and professional guide..... the calling of the deer and the visit to the old kirk will be treasured! Will most definetely do this again on my next visit.

Excellent tour, great experience. We saw a lot of places, the driver and tour was wonderful. The price is very reasonable given the length of the tour and all the places we saw. I strongly recommend it.

Loved the scenery on this tour, and the tour guide was fantastic, really knew his stuff. We heard lots of great stories and saw wonderful things. Lots packed into this one, with a good bit of time on the bus, so would recommend this at beginning of your vacation rather than end. We went at the end of our trip, and found ourselves falling asleep on the bus and nearly missing some of the spectacular scenery around Glencoe. Oban is just lovely.
