A dynamic, personalised tour. It was great - Gordon is a fun guide, with lots of juicy stories to tell. I was brought up in the north of Scotland, but he took us ( a party of foreign students and 2 teachers) to places I had never been to before, as well as the classic Urquhart castle and Loch Ness....

My friend and I decided to make a quick getaway to the Highlands from our otherwise short trip to Edinburgh. Knowing nothing about the area, we were happy to stumble upon prior reviews of WOW Scotland walking tours. Gordon and his wife made a walking tour of the town very easy to plan, and Gordon picked us up at our... More

From our first contact, we (my daughter and I) found Gordon at WOW Scotland very easy to work with. Initially hesitant to get locked into a "tour" experience, I was assured that our booking would be built around sights that we wanted to see, and Gordon delivered so much more! I had recently discovered ancestral roots in Scotland and Gordon... More

Sandy is a great guide and showed me places on the Isle of Skye that, I am sure, not many tourists visit. Sandy is a kind and helpful guide and his great knowledge of places, history and fairy tales made this tour really enjoyable. I felt comfortable and can definitely but recommend Sandy and WOW Scotland more! Many, many thanks... More

Gordon took us on a great day trip out of Inverness. We had some hiccups at the beginning (road closures due to land slides from excessive rain) that he handled like a pro. He rerouted the tour with minimal delay and took us to spots that I don't think other tour guides would know about. One bonus we got from... More

WOW is right! What a great experience we had spending the day with Gordon. My husband, my parents and I were looking for an overview of the Highlands/Inverness area having never been to Scotland before. We had a few requests, but basically we let Gordon set the itinerary and show us what he loved about this part of the country.... More

Where to begin? Our day trip with Gordon and Paul was simply perfect. They are both so knowledgeable about this beautiful area of Scotland that we thought they might have even arranged the stunning dusting of snow on the mountains! My boyfriend and I decided to go to Inverness for a birthday treat and were looking for a tour that... More

Your review made us all smile, particularly Paul, who is delighted as our newest guide to have his first review on TripAdvisor be such a great one! Here at WOW we are experts in weather planning, as well as tour planning, so of course we were able to ensure that the mountains were dusted with snow especially for you ;-)... More

Gordon drove my wife, daughter and myself for a full day. We had an itinerary planned out, but early on in conversation Gordon found some of the things we were really interested in and rerouted us along to way. Some of our favorite memories were from places not on the pre-planned route. Also, he was very astute as to the... More
