It was a very impressive tour. It was a long day- but if you do not have a lot of time in Scotland it is s a great way to see a variety of areas. Loved it and would do it again

Our guide Alex was phenomenal. Villages, lakes, breathtaking mountains, castles, everything was excellent and we could not have asked for any more. Alex was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and didn't rush us. Cannot recommend him and the tour enough.
