Bill is a very knowledgeable tour guide for Skye. His enthusiasm for people to learn about Skye and his amazing story telling have made this the best trip ever for us. One of the best things about this tour is that, you will actually have a chance to walk around for about an hour at certain locations, not just you... More

We went on the one day Skye Bus tour during Easter with Bill as our guide/driver. It started out a bit late as we waited for some last minute passengers but everyone was quite relaxed. At the Fairy Pools, Fairy Glen and Neist Point - be prepared for a bit of hiking/climbing. It was quite muddy on the path to... More

I had this tour on the shortest day of the year(the winter solstice) and in rainy weather. Despite these obstacles, Bill made our trip very enjoyable and regaled us with stories about Scotlands past. For me the highlight was the Neist point , even in the bad weather the view was breathtaking. I would recommend Bill tours especially in winter... More

We previously did the 4 day Skye & Inverness Tour with this company. To date, it has been the only vacation experience that my husband and I really wanted to do again. This year, we came back with my husband's parents for a 2nd go-round. Our 2nd experience was as good as the first! We saw some new sites as... More

Real Scottish Journeys is the best way to experience the highlights and hidden gems of the Highlands that you won't see on other tours. On the 4 day Classic Skye and Inverness Tour, Bill makes Scotland come alive with his storytelling, music, and deep knowledge of Scotland's history, folklore, and culture. This active tour stops at well known landmarks, but... More

Our family (myself, husband and two teenage kids) took the 4 day Classic Skye and Inverness Tour. It was by far the best tour any of us have ever taken! Bill, the owner / guide is a delightful wealth of information tempered with an engaging mix of storyteller, intermittently sharing myths and legends, along with a passionate historian and a... More
