We enjoyed our 5 day tour of the Highlands with a great driver and storyteller Angela. Beautiful scenery, good companions, and interesting stories and legends. My only complaint is that the B&B's we stayed in were too far from restaurants. For us "Older Citizens" it meant a taxi ride to them and back. Also we nearly froze to death in... More

My Husband and I went on this tour on 11th October 2014 and it was marvellous - the tour itself was very interesting and we learnt so much history from our tour guide/driver she was very keyed up on Scottish history which we really appreciated and she was also a very very friendly person and made our day out a...

Had a really great time on the tour, had a great tour guide who took us to lots of different places that was outside of the itinerary. Good way to see Scotland

I did the one day tour. The driver was a great storyteller, so funny and played some whopper tunes along the way as well. You're taken the scenic route on the way with a couple of picture stops. I'd recommend going on the Loch Ness cruise when you get there as it's the best way to see the loch and... More

We went on the one day tour and could not have been more excited to explore the Highlands. As soon as we met the guide, we knew we were in for a something. He wasn't very talkative, or friendly. I went on a tour in Ireland where we had this amazingly funny and charismatic guide, who not only told us... More

We did the 5 day tour and our guide Scot was absolutely amazing. He knew lots of stories and history and his enthusiasm and love of Scotland really showed. He also played some fantastic music along the way which tied everything we saw and heard together. Saw all the sights and then some. The only negative was that we were... More

This tour was a good overall experience meant to give a general overview of the Highlands. The scenery is amazing. The B&B option is really just small hotel accommodation. Expect very basic rooms with Scottish breakfasts which are hearty and excellent. You will need to walk 10 or 15 minutes for a dinner restaurant. There are many scheduled stops for... More

It was a memorable experience with the breathtaking scenes changing along the way; the run through history with the visits of castles and monuments; the amazing villages that gave us a look into their animal and sea life; above all very knowledgeable and friendly guides Andy and during the later part of the tour Tony who would do an extra...

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour at the end of September. Our guide, Andy C., did an amazing job and went out of his way to make sure we all had a great time. The company was very helpful with every aspect of the trip (from booking, to giving advice and to responding to questions) and we would thoroughly recommend them. There's... More
