When we originally contacted Gordon at WOW Scotland, we explained that we were a family of 4, had never visited Scotland before and had one day to spend touring around Inverness. We wanted to spend our day seeing things that we wouldn't find on our own....places off the beaten path. During the planning and booking Gordon and his wife were... More

What a wonderful day out with our guide Zane. I travelled with my parents to Scotland and we booked this tour well in advance to be sure to secure the date we wanted. My mother is of Scottish descent and we were able to explore parts of the Highlands that had direct specific relevance to her heritage. Zane was even... More

From the family owned coffee shops we "found" to the Portree community bazaar, we got to know the true Scotland. Zane and Sandy were so much fun and infinitely knowledgable. In my opinion, WOW is the only way to see Scotland

I have so many great things to say about this trip, I'm not even sure where to begin! I took part in a group day trip to the Isle of Skye and had an fantastic time. Gordon is a wonderful tour guide: friendly, knowledgeable, and entertaining. When not hearing fascinating stories about the spectacular countryside, we listened to music from... More

On August 11, 2014 our ship was unable to dock due to weather. We were booked on a tour with WOW Scotland. Our money was totally refunded without having to ask. It was nice to get a refund with no problems. I would definitely do use WOW Scotland again.

Thanks so much for this review. We know that you, and all of our other customers, were so disappointed that the Invergordon port-of-call was cancelled due to bad weather. However, we are glad that you appreciated the rapidly processed full refund. More

We chose to use an independent tour operator instead of taking a ships tour. I chose WOW tours based on reviews and was not disappointed. Our guide was Gordon (who owns the company) and he was great. We had a beautiful day with a walking tour of Invergordon, then a trip to Loch Ness, a stop at Cawdor Castle, and... More

Thanks for the review - we arranged the sunshine just for you :-) Just to clarify - the walking tour was of Inverness, not of Invergordon (just in case you are recommending this to anyone else). More

We sailed on Oceania Mariner to the British Isles 7/23 and booked all our own tours. We chose WOW Scotland for the Sutherland tour. We booked back in January for this July cruise. From the onset, Gordon & Kay Pearson were quick with replies, friendly and the service was excellent. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with Gordon WOW. The... More

I recently toured the Isle of Skye with Gordon. It was a fabulous day: We saw a large and varied selection of locations. The WOW tour of Scotland revealed a beautiful and unworldly landscape -- almost as if it were computer-generated. I've taken tours in England and Ireland, but Gordon's tour was far superior. Highly recommend this tour!

My wife and I had a very enjoyable day excursion with WOW Scotland from our cruise ship the Ruby Princess on July 30th 2014. I read the excellent reviews posted on Trip Advisor about this company and the company did not disappoint. Gordon was waiting for us at the pier and it was a short walk to the bus. Gordon... More

A rainy day, tea with some friendly locals and an impromptu whiskey tasting were highlights of our amazing tour with Gordon. We wanted to get off the beaten path to see the highlands and we did in very good company. It would be difficult to convey the incredible beauty of Scotland and the humor and congeniality of our host with... More

You must be the first person to say that "a rainy day" was one of the tour highlights - we are glad that you appreciated our typical Scottish weather! Seriously though, thanks for the review and recommendation - it is much appreciated. More
