We had an absolutely fantastic weekend in Skye with Danny and Bill in November. We were a group of 32 students from the University of Edinburgh hoping to see the very best of the Scottish highlands, which we certainly did! We did the 3 day Skye tour, also going though the Cairngorms and Glen Coe. The trip was perfectly run... More

We took a day tour of Skye. It was a relaxed way to explore all of the highlights of the island. We had plenty of time at all of the stops, and our guide kept us entertained with history, funny stories and Scottish music during the drives. Knowing the history and the local legends, we got so much more out... More

This was a great day tour. Bill was so friendly and personable. It felt like he knew all of us and made us feel comfortable because this is a small group tour, with a small bus. He knows everything about the island and you can feel his passion for where he lives. He tells great stories that explain history, and... More

Bill was the best guide one can imagine. We had a wonderful day! He is such a good story teller you feel like you were back in time. Fairies, magic and that unbelievable landscape! Also there is the dificulty of driving on the inverted side, so glad we did not do that and ended up like the guy who fell... More

Skye Bus Tour was excellent. Bill told us funny stories all day and kept us laughing! Good timing at each stop and fantastic suggestion for U-Tube to see 'the ridge' which really put the skyline into perspective after our tour. Great sites, great advice for lunch and fantastic company - all round great day on isle of skye.

Bill is truly doing what he was meant to do! We travelled Scotland for two weeks with our two teenage daughters, and Bill's tour blew the other coach tour we took out of the water - and the other one was pretty good! Super fun, and a just-right combination of fact, legend, music, sitting, hiking, etc.

The one day tour of the Isle of Skye is a great way to explore it, in the rain or in the sunshine. Bill, the guide, is a very friendly 21st-century hippy, and will tell you amazing stories while taking you to the most beautiful spots of the island with his van. I recommend the tour to everyone who is... More
