As usual, Viator came through with a spectacular day trip. The driver was knowledgable and freindly. The locations were wonderful to see . A great experience.
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!
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.
Gorgeous scenery, comfortable bus and a knowledgeable and friendly driver.
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.
The scenery was beautiful and I felt I saw a lot of the area. I think this was a great tour to find areas of Scotland you'd like to visit and spend more time at. For me it was a bit fast with minimal time at stops. It kind of felt like a commercial for visiting Scotland rather than a tour. It was easy to book and I felt the price was very good. The sights were second to none and I enjoyed most of the music played during our trip. I think I would prefer a larger coach trip in the future however. The small group size was nice but the seats were not comfortable for so much time on the road.
Oban was fantastic. The 3 hours drive through the highlands with no stops is a bit much for only stopping a few minutes. Warning: long time with no restroom!
The landscape of Scotland is unparalleled and seeing it all for a third time in less than two weeks was amazing. The problem was the driver. On my other two trips, the drivers were more than friendly that's par the course of the Scottish. They wanted to engage with you, talk with you, and get you really into your time with them. This gentleman seemed to be only concerned with ushering people on/off the bus. He muttered under his breath when a few people were a minute or two late. He was curt, unfriendly, and drove like a maniac. It takes a lot to get me feeling motion sickness, but when a few people express concerns and actually grab bags in preparation for sickness, there's a problem. The driver blamed it on the road, but I took this EXACT trip on the SAME roads going the opposite way a week earlier and it was a dream.
I wouldn't book with this tour company again. The other two companies were clearly focused on making this a memorable experience that guests would want to come back and relive, and that is what I intend to do with those tour companies not this one.
