Very well organized tour. The Eilean Donan castle was amazing.
As first time travelers to Scotland not willing to drive and not keen on group tours, my husband and I were a bit squeamish about taking a full day trip. However, from the moment we boarded the bus to the last step off, we were so glad we did. Kevin, our tour guide, was amazing. He was a wealth of information, a relaxed and patient man full of entertaining stories and antidotal tidbits. Scotland is a feast for the eyes stunning shades of green with gorgeous skies. Our journey to the Isle of Skye included a stop at the iconic Eileen Donan Castle where we were able to peruse the castle and grounds at a leisurely pace. Lunch in Portree on Skye was yummy, albeit rushed due to slow traffic on the way. Kevin made many stops on the trip allowing for photo opportunities and to see to our comforts. Our favorite stops were in the Highlands to capture images of the beautiful wildflowers and hillsides. At the end of the trip Kevin gave us recommendations for dining in Inverness. We tried one Hootananny which ended the day with a 5-star rating! Thank you Kevin and Viator.
Wonderful! So beautiful, hundreds of picture opportunities. Our driver/guide Gary was amazing, funny, informative, friendly. Wish we could have ventured further around Skye, you only stop in Portree and only for an hour. Due to traffic issues we stopped at Loch Ness on the way back, and it was getting dark. Didn't actually go to the castle, which I was disappointed in, and only saw it from the road above looking down. But a great trip, long day, but hundreds of beautiful pictures.
I really enjoyed the tour and Kevin was a very knowledgeable guide. I just wish we had a little more time for exploring the little town of Portee and maybe some of the outlands, Portee was beautiful, but the stop was for lunch and if you ate there wasn't time to look and if you looked there was time to eat. I would have loved to see the Fairy Pools. The weather was what I understood is Scottish, clouds hanging low in the morning and quite chilly, some rain and some sunshine. I loved the Elean Donan castle, beautiful. I would gladly do it again.
Best tour guide I've ever met, good on you Gary
People should never miss it!
Ian was our driver/guide...he did a great job in both roles. Lots of neat sights and helpful commentary. It was a long day, but a fun one. We highly recommend this tour!
The tour guide was very professional and he has very good knowledge of the place.
Guide is engaging, wonderful and informative there is plenty of stops for photos and to explore. My only wish is more time on the isle of Skye exploring rather then in town. I would have like to have seen the fairy pools for example.
This was a very nice tour. I was somewhat confused in the beginning because I didn't understand that when I booked with viator I would be going with Highlands. It took sometime to figure this out at the checkin but they found us.
