        I joined this tour on a solo trip to Scotland and it was the absolute best. Dave the tour guide was so funny and informative and taught us the history of Scotland in a great story he spanned or as we drive from place to place. I learned so much and saw more on this tour than I possibly could have if I tried to travel the country alone. Also met Amazing people from around the world who I’m still friends with. Dave is the best guide ever and I highly recommend if you want to fall in love with the most beautiful country in the world.

        Dave is great tour guide and is very knowledgeable. He was able to provide the perfect mix of of popular tourist stops and off the beaten path stops. His stories along the way also complimented the tour perfectly. Next time I am in Scottland, Dave will be my first choice for tours!

        I'm not sure why I decided on an autumn visit to Skye but I'm really glad I did as it added to the sense of atmosphere. The weather wasn't perfect but it didn't need to be when you have an entertaining and enthusiastic guide who is passionate about Scotland.

        I still saw everything I wanted and more and I loved that Dave was flexible and gave options depending on how we were feeling. Having someone that was fun with an insane sense of humour while still keeping an eye on safety was important as was being able to sit back while someone figured out the logistics of travel and acommodation. I went to see the end of the autumn colours and also got a beach, castles, sunsets and whisky!

        If you want a serious formal 'herded around like lemmings' tour then this isn't for you. But if you're prepared to get your shoes muddy and laugh until you can't breathe then Dave's your man.

        Highly recommended!

        This tour was the the highlight of our month long trip in Scotland. It was an amazing way to see the highlands and the isle of Skye. Our hike of the Quirang on Skye was unforgettable and one of the most beautiful places that I've ever been. Dave is a one of a kind tour guide who will show you the beauty of Scotland and have you laughing with his stories and tales of Scotland along the way.

        We had the utmost pleasure of exploring the Scottish Highlands with Dave for 3 days. I still regale my friends with stories of our trip. You'll walk away from this tour with infinite more information about Scotland than you walked in with and retell stories of your trips for years after. Thanks Dave!

        I can’t recommend Adventure Alba enough, 5 out of 5 stars. I was planning a first visit to Scotland with only 3 days to see the sites and didn’t know where to begin. After reading several reviews, reached out to a few different companies. David was the most flexible and helpful. He helped me put together a great plan for a mother & son tour. We had the added benefit of working with two tour guides Dave and Lieke. They were both knowledgeable of Scottish history, as well as entertaining. We had the most enjoyable, three days, that ended up being very flexible based upon the perfect weather during our visit. I can’t wait for my next visit to Scotland, and will only use Adventure Alba. They made us feel as if we were leaving as friends. ~ C. Mitch

        Decided to go on this trip as a part of a solo trip through Scotland and it was awesome! Dave (tour guide) was very entertaining, funny, and good about pointing significant places out. He told lots of stories and told our group a lot interesting info. Definitely recommend it!

        The journey I took in the Highlands was led by Dave and it was the funniest I've ever had. With his ability of storyteller and his sympathy, he made my trip special.
        Thanks for letting me discover the beauty and the stories of the Highlands.

        It takes a special kind of person to deliver a 5 star review; however, cannot say enough great things about Dave. His knowledge, his stories and his quick wit transformed what could have been an ordinary tour into an extraordinary tour.
        I highly recommend taking this tour with Dave!! I had such a great time, it was hands down my favorite part of my month long backpacking trip. 🥇
