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

My friend and I had the most wonderful experience with Gordon from WOW Scotland as he drove us through winter weather from one end of Scotland to the other. He noticed our interests and tried to show us everything that might be in our interest range. He also showed us bridges, how they were constructed and who built them as... More

Thank you for the review. We are delighted that you had such a lovely time, despite the stormy weather! The Highlands in January can certainly be unpredictable, but the remote winter wonderland that you experienced is also incredibly beautiful (particularly as most people are tucked up at home, letting us have the wilderness to ourselves!).

WOW - it was the best one-day trip of my life. A 16-seat Mercedes van, rolling through the Highlands to great Scottish music, guide extraordinaire Chris, and snow on the hills - it just doesn't get any better! Our flight into Inverness was late but that was the last mishap. Chris met us in the waiting area, got us settled... More

We are so delighted with your review - for your tour to be described as "paradise" and "the best one day trip of my life" is truly a glowing endorsement (particularly as you came in winter, which just shows that Scotland is amazing year-round!). Sincere thanks for taking the time to write in such detail. More

Gordon led my husband and I on a walking/hiking/eating tour of the Isle of Skye in September 2013. We had a wonderful time. He had us taking a dip in the Fairy Pools, crossing fields full of sheep in pursuit of waterfalls and climbing up and over mountains to find isolated beaches. Often, we were the only people visible for... More

Our family did a private day tour with Gordon on October 3rd to wrap up our travels in Scotland before we move back to the USA. Our day tour consisted of leaving Inverness and making many memorable stops along the way. Our first stop was a pasture of highland cows that we were able to feed. From there was a... More
