We are an independent company who specialise in providing bespoke private tours in the Scottish Highlands. Whether you would like a whistle stop day tour around Loch Ness, or a multi-day tour of the region, we can put an itinerary together to suit the requirements of your group.We don't follow the tourist trail (you can do that without us!) but instead our local guides make it their mission to show you the hidden gems of the Highlands, sharing their passion, enthusiasm and knowledge with you every step of the way (and indulging any weaknesses you may have for home baking, fine malt whisky or haggis!). Most of our customers end up being our friends, because you have most fun with your friends! We look forward to welcoming you to the Highlands soon and turning your vacation dreams into a reality. « less

We asked for a tour of the Highlands that was geared toward the "Monach of the Glen" enthusiast. Gordon not only took us to the sites we requested, but also researched and added other locations that made this outing even more enjoyable. His knowledge of and enthusiasm for Scottish history and lore was impressive and enjoyable. I would recommend that... More

I organized an excursion with a group of 17 students. Gordon was of a great help and always here to answer any requests quickly. The excursion was great, super well-organized, taking into account my requests. Very funny guy on top of that. What I do like as well is the fact of booking with someone independent who knows his region.... More

Gordon Pearson was incredibly helpful from the moment I contacted him. Determined to see Red deer on my visit, the flexibility of the tour and the Gordon's knowledge of the area meant I wasn't disappointed! Not only that but he went above and beyond to ensure that I saw as much as possible on my day tour. Great value for... More

A friend and I took a day trip with Wow where we went hiking in the mountains and it was incredible! Gordon was very personable and incredibly nice to us. He was great to talk to and knew a lot about the area he was showing us. What I found most impressive about the company was how flexible they were... More

Four of us spent a day on the Isle of Skye with Gordon Pearson from WOW Scotland. Gordon went out of his way to ensure that we saw as much as possible. We hiked, stopped at many places around the island, and ate a delicious lunch at a small out of the way cafe. While driving, Gordon pointed out many... More

From the moment I called WOW Scotland, I could not believe how helpful they were! I spoke to Gordon who bent over backwards to ensure he could make mine and my boyfriends weekend in Scotland the best ever! He offered us a walking guide tour of Inverness & met us only an hour later from when I called at such... More

Gordon is passionate about Scotland, his heritage and his culture and is willing to share his fountain of knowledge in such an engaging manner. We were able to organise a private tour of the areas that we wanted to see and Gordon was very accommodating. We had such a great day - it was cold, windy and snowing - but... More

I can't say enough praise for Gordon and WOW Scotland! Our experience created memories that will last a lifetime. Gordon was outstanding. He kept all of us entertained, especially my eight year old son. Our tour included unique stops highlighting the charming regions near Inverness. We were able to visit interesting sites off the beaten path and see Scotland as... More

My husband and I travelled to Scotland with another couple in October. We were fortunate enough to find Gordon and Wow Scotland which proved to be utterly FANTASTIC. He is so organized,knowledgeable and has a great personality. We enjoyed everything he had planned, especially Balnuaran of Clava, a prehistoric cemetary, the Kilt rock and DUN VEGAN. We had a grand... More

Like some of the other reviewers, we were on the cruise that had to change the itinerary because of bad weather. WOW Scotland did a great job of adjusting to the changes. We were able to still have the same guide, Zane. She was fantastic. She was knowledgeable about the areas we were visiting as well as passionate about the... More
