Stuart provided a really great tour with attention to every detail. The bus was clean and safe and Stuart is a great driver. He gave good commentary with a side of humor. Everyone in the group interacted together and appeared to enjoy the day travelling together. Stuart added some nice personal touches, a wee toast of Scotch whiskey, at his own expense, with some Irn Bru fir himself. He also took us to a wonderful place called Clog & Craft where we met some local artists and crafters. I had a leather belt very quickly custom altered for me and we bought a number of unique gifts. Stuart recommended a lunch spot that turned out great also! 😋 The whole day was relaxing and very enjoyable. Even the weather cooperated which I am sure Stuart arranged in advance. 😉 Highly recommend the tour and Stuart! Slàinte mhath!

Thank you so much Dan for leaving this great review for Stuart. We love you so enjoyed your tour and your photos that you shared with us are spectacular. The moody skies behind the Glenfinnan Monument are awesome. It's always good to listen to the guides recommendations for both food and gifts if that's what you're after. All our guides have a special wee extra for their guests and Irn Bru is the drivers only choice! Haste ye back and Slàinte mhath

We had a great experience with this tour. Craig, our guide, was amazing. Craig was funny, personal and told us a lot about all the stops along the way. The highlight was seeing the train on the viaduct and the beautiful Loch Ness. World recommend it.

Its just a driving and simple introduction. The tour guide seems not passionate. A very boring tour.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
We are really sorry your didn't enjoy your experience to Glenfinnan with us. The tour is so much more than just driving, there are the designated attractions and plenty time to be out the bus and exploring. All our guides are usually very passionate and this seems so out of character. Enjoy the rest of your travelling.

Thank you Robbie for this very enjoyable and memorable excursion, full of history and nature , all delivered in unforgettable Scottish brogue! We loved the tour and would do it again. I learned so much about Scottish history and the Jacobites. Especially loved the statue and memorial garden for the soldiers.

Bill was an amazing tour guide. Very knowledgeable and gave us interesting information on the history of scotland. Loved the little stops he took us to, especially the waterfall. Most of all, i loved the scottish shortbread made by his wife maerie! Would definitely recommend Bill as the tour guide as well as the tour itself

We booked this tour and we were lucky to have Bill as our guide. He happily toured us around while telling us history of the places we went to. Bill even gave us a bonus song at the end of the trip,that is on top of a whiskey shot and short bread.

Glenfinnan viaduct is the obvious highlight, and Robbie made sure we got there in good time for the 10.45 train. Robbie turned out to be a very good guide, and fed us lots of information throughout the day. Good views of loch Ness, and Urquhart Castle, plus we all heard about John Cobb, who died on the loch trying to break the water speed record in 1952. All in all, a very enjoyable and satisfying day.

Our driver and guide that day was John Coleman and he was beyond excellent. We learnt a lot about the clans, the clearances, Outlander, Mary Queen Stuart and her husband. I easily could have been in tour for a couple of hours more and the attention we got, including my little one was so good that we changed a different trip we had with another tour operator. Absolutely worth every penny.

Beyond excellent is a fabulous review for John. Thank you so much. We love you felt it was worth every penny and found John such a "happy" guide. It's lovely to learn so much, yet have such a fun day too. We're "happy"your little ones had a great tour too. Haste ye back.

The tour was very well organised and Alan, our tour guide, was brilliant. We saw the most stunning glens and the famous Glenfinnan viaduct that featured in Harry Potter films, with the steam engine going over it as well. Much recommended

Thank you Luke for such a kind review for Alan and the Glenfinnan and Glencoe Tour. We love you enjoyed the seeing the Hogwarts Express going over the Glenfinnan Viaduct. It is quite spectacular for a Harry Potter lover. Thanks also for the recommendation. Slainte!
