A great way to maximise on the Scottish experience
Ruben
, Aug 2020
A great way to explore and maximise on the Scottish experience within a short time. Yes, it is a coach oriented tour (as clearly indicated at the time of booking) and thus it requires a fair amount of driving time. However, you benefit from visiting and admiring loads of scenic beauty spots and locations that otherwise you most likely would miss, let alone you need to know where these are in a first place. Also, if you are interested in the history of Scotland, its folklore, curiosities and stories... you are on winner. Our Scottish guide (Steve) could not have been more knowledgeable and the driving was made utterly enjoyable just listening to him and his stories. The accommodation we stayed in at Skye was home away (thanks Christine and Hamish) and a great addition to the overall tour experience. To top things up we had sunny clear skies during the three days; definitely a winner up North. Overall a truly unforgettable experience!

Isle of Skye Trip of a Lifetime
Anna

Steven H was our guide, bus driver, and all around good sport to be with! He was informative, efficient, professional, and very organized. He filled our three days with the scheduled stops, but also threw in a lot of "surprise" stops, where we trekked through the woods to see an incredible waterfall, stopped along cliff edges for beautiful views, and all while giving us a taste of the local legends and lore, as well as playing a variety of Scottish artists and groups with modern and traditional songs and music. At all times, he made sure everyone had a good time.

Very Good Tour

I traveled with my family. We were 4 adults. We were fortunate to have sunshine during our 3 day Isle of Skye and Highlands Tour and our driver , Nick was very good. He wasn't rushing us and was very informative and helpful . The scenery was fantastic and we toured so many areas. I would have given this a 5 star but our bed and breakfast place kept switching off the heater at night and it was cold..we did not appreciate that at all. Over all, we were very satisfied with the tour.

Our 3-day Isle of Skye and Highland tour was wonderful. Davey was our guide and driver and he was very knowledgeable, navigated the rough terrain well, and kept us to an aggressive schedule. The tour was well organized to see a lot in a few short days. If you have a short amount of time but want to see the highlights, this is a great option!

Great Tour!

We had Erin as our guide and Fernando as our driver - they were wonderful. Erin is so bubbly and knowledgeable and friendly and Fernando went out of his way to include fun stops not on the itinerary so we wouldn't miss out! Our B&B accomodation was wonderful - very nice large room with up to date bathroom, English breakfasts and great location. They pack a lot into this tour, but if you are looking to get out and hike, then this is not the tour for that. It's a great overview tour of the Highlands and history but you spend a lot of time in the bus. Just makes me want to come back on my own now.

Tour provided by Graham D and Ivan

I have visited many places in different continents, and I normally didn't provide any review. But I would like to rate this tour because it is the best I ever had. The views are breathtaking beautiful, which I thought would only appear in fairy tale story. No words can describle the beauty of the nature... if you are like me enjoy the nature, you should definetly not missing this trip. We are very lucky to have Graham D as our guide and Ivan as our driver. Besides being an excellent guide, Graham D is also a very good singer and he is very humorous , making our trip extremely enjoyable. Ivan is very friendly and is an excellent driver. I normally get car sick but this time everthing is perfect OK due to Ivan's excellent driving skill. Thank you very much and I hope I can meet both of you in the future.

Awesome place, Boring guide

There is no argument that Skye is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been, but our guide Catherine was all business-like and boring, my single room in the B&B was so tiny that Harry Potter's cupboard is bigger than it!!
