The tour was as described and lived up to expectations - an all round enjoyable day out in the highlands with opportunities to see lochs, castles and mountains - KIlchurn Castle, Glencoe and the town of Oban were highlights.
The best you can get.
Highly recommend trip you can see lots of thing the driver guide is very help ful in the trip they cover lots of part in the Scotland I like timing as well
It was a most enjoyable tour and we had a great driver.
This was a wonderful tour, and our guide, Stewart, was fantastic! Before going, I was nervous that we'd spend too much time in the van, but there were lots of stops to get out, walk around, and explore. Stewart also gave us great info on history, geography, folklore, music, etc., so there was never a dull moment. The beauty of the Highlands could never be captured on film. Stunning!!!
Real good value - great destinations
The tour was good I will go again. Thanks great service.
Awesome tour! The van I was in had a brilliant tour guise - he was funny, warm, welcoming, armed with great tips and funny to the bone! I loved the Scottish music he played in between stops and his tips of places to eat and shop at were extremely helpful! I would highly recommend this tour as it gives you the best combo of the countryside - seaside towns, mountains, lakes, souvenier stops, Harry Potter, castles and old blood soaked battlefields. It was the best summary of Scotland in my mind! It was also a great relaxing pace - with more than enough time at each destination and more than enough time for lunch and tea breaks. The photos were stunning and I totally enjoyed my trip. Hands down one of the best tours I had in the UK! And we were back in Glasgow by 6pm too! Loved it.
Unique experience! Well organised tour, beautiful scenery, excellent driver/guide!
The tour was amazing and our tour guide was very funny.
