Oban was wonderful if only for the FOOD! Fresh seafood on the wharf, eaten standing up in the rain was an added laugh and a great experience of a lifetime! Great castles/palaces/stately homes too! Not to be missed no matter what the weather though the sun did shine throughout the day highlighting the massive expanse of Scottish scenery. A the the driver as well whose name I have sadly forgotten since it was quite a while ago. My first experience at rating the tour was when we first arrived home but somehow it never got posted and I have been too busy since to try again. But with careful prodding from Viator, I am trying once again.
Interesting excursion that included sights for all tasts. Enough time to visit all sights. Not too long in the bus.
So much fun! Had plenty of time at all of the sites and Robbie was incredibly entertaining!

I had an amazing experience. A nice relaxing way to experience the west coast of scotland. Highly recommended this one. Willie our tour guide provided us with a short history of Scotland...very entertaining. Thanks Willie.
Stops in the village of Loss and in Oban were the highlights. Enjoyed lunch in a restaurant on the wharf in Oban.
Would have enjoyed spending more time here being a sea port right on the water was a different perspective to the Scotland we had been experiencing.
The guide was extremely knowledgeable about the region and history of Scotland. Trip length was a perfect balance between driving and stops for sightseeing. I really felt I got my money and #39;s worth.
This is a wonderful use of time when in Scotland, one I can't recommend high enough. You have to see this country anyway you can, and their vans are a very comfortable way. The itinerary was thorough and the guide's spiel is informative, to say the least. The only knock on the trip was the soundtrack of Scottish music played here and there. Quiet contemplation would have been as nice if not nicer.
Michael was our driver and guide on the Oban and Western Highlands day tour. He is engaging, eloquent, knowledgeable and entertaining. He is the best tour guide we have had to date. The coach was clean and comfortable and the tour was well organized. Great value for the price. A terrific way to see the beautiful countryside of the western highlands and learn the history.
This was a great tour led by Fergus. We got to see many places and were given just the right amount of time to spend in these places. Of course, now that I've seen them and heard some history about them, I will be returning some day in the future to visit again. Fergus was very knowledgable and friendly and a lot of fun.
Fantastic. The driver was very informative and fun. Beautiful scenery, good stops with plenty of time to see some highlights of that particular area. Definitely recommend. Only downfall would be the directions on the meeting point. The information from Viator says to meet at the Tourist information centre ... which I went to, but it wasn't the location, I then had to run about 2kms to the bus stop where they were waiting for me. Made it extremely stressful by giving the wrong directions on the meeting place.
This is a great tour! We loved our guide. He was interesting and informative. He told us stories and about the history of Scotland as we traveled between stops. We never felt rushed and always had plenty of time to explore and take photos. The bus was also comfortable and in great condition. We would definitely recommend this tour!
A power-packed day full of beautiful and diverse scenery with ample time to stop and enjoy every stop. Our guide was amazing! Not only did he prep us with information prior to each stop but he also gave us a complete and detailed history of the fight for Scottish independence while driving!
Comfortable pace, affable guide, lovely scenery…a pleasant and relaxing day.
Excellent trip, driver was very friendly, accommodating and very knowledgeable regarding local history and he even played some Scottish music to accompany the trip. would recommend to anyone.
A wonderful day trip that is perfectly paced with lots of nice stops. Definitely worth doing. Colin McNeil was a particularly good guide - great stories!
This is great tour.The guide was fantastic.I got to try some terrific Scottish seafood in Oban.I highly recommend this tour to anyone.
We had a wonderful trip to Oban. The sun shone for us too! Our guide Mark in his swinging kilt was a joy to listen to. Full of facts and great stories of the clans. His historical knowledge was really great, he told us just enough to give a flavour of each place we stopped at and made us want to cram in everything we could. All in all a fantastic day. Well done Mark!!! - MR AND MRS EKE, KENT.
I can't think of anything about this tour which wasn't of a high standard. From the tour guide Alexis to the fish and chips at Nories Fish Shop in Oban to the Highland scenery. Everything left a lasting impression and we were sorry that we didn't have more time to explore the West Highlands.
We love our tour guide she was very informative. Highly recomended.
My daughter and I can't say enough good things about our trip. The whole experience was enjoyable from beginning to end. Colin was a very knowledgeable guide, and kept everyone on schedule with his humour, and entertained with his amusing stories and anecdotes. His expert narrative brought Scottish history to life, making it ever interesting and engaging. Well done Colin! I recommend this trip whole-heartedly.
