My husband & I enjoyed Highland Explorer Tours' 5 day "Isle of Skye, Loch Ness & Inverness" tour on June 16-20th, with Heather as our tour guide. Heather was excellent and really transformed a wonderful tour into a most excellent one! She had a wonderful sense of humor and was full of information about all the areas we visited. She... More

We were very lucky with the weather and got sunshine throughout whole tour. Day 1. We started our trip towards Skye by stopping at the Forth railway bridge, outside Edinburgh. Next major stop at village... More

A much needed vacation brought me to Edinburgh, Scotland for a week. What did I do? Book this tour. It was fantastic. Amazing. Beautiful. I'm so happy I went. Keith, our tour guide, was awesome. He took us to some beautiful places. Thank you to Keith, and Highland Explorers for helping me to find paradise.

My family did the three day Isle of Skye tour. We have children aged 5, 11 and 15....the whole family loved the tour. Nick was a great guide and we learned a lot about Scottish history and legends. Skye was beautiful and it was a nice change from the city sight seeing we had been doing. We also thought it... More

This was an outstanding trip. Leaving from Edinburgh on a Saturday, we were treated to three days of beautiful sites and an incredibly informative and entertaining experience thanks to our guide Andy. If you are at all interested in history (I myself am a history teacher), you will thoroughly enjoy the in depth stories of Jacobite uprisings, the real history... More

Perfect length for a day trip to see the highlands. Don was an excellent tour guide - friendly with many stories about Scottish history. The day flew by. Glad he stopped the bus so we could get some beautiful photos by the lochs. Very much enjoyed the Famous Grouse tour and tasting as well.
