      Night trip to Devil's Pulpit
      Ferenc was very nice and welcoming person , he made sure that we were safe through the whole trip , he was very helpful when he dropped us close to our place on our way back. The trip was something else, very halloweenish , although I don't recommend to take that trip at night otherwise you will miss all the details. The driving was a bit reckless , for a person with motion sickness it would not be the best thing.

      A very disappointing family outing -- never again
      Our family of seven took DreamChaser Adventurers tour along with one other gentleman. Our driver instructed us into the van, acting like he was in a great hurry. He drove recklessly at high speeds on rain soaked roads, increasing the impression that he was in a "rush" to be somewhere else. He never told us his name until I asked him upon arriving at the Wheel. He said it was "Fennants" like tenants? He gave us little information at either sight. He acted like he was doing us a big favor by letting us stay to watch the wheel rotate. He gave us only 25 minutes at the Kelpies and then rushed us back to the starting point and dumped us off 1 hour before the tour was supposed to end. The Trip Advisor website clearly states it is a 4 hour tour https://www.tripadvisor.com/AttractionProductReview-g186534-d19495044-Visit_the_Two_Most_Iconic_Landmarks_of_Scotland-Glasgow_Scotland.html The other complainants were misinformed, the advertisement did not include the opportunity to ride the wheel. Though there were other positive reviews for other drivers who were named we did not have this information before we signed up in order to request one of them. Our conclusion: It would have been cheaper, less stressful and better quality to have booked an Uber and bought a Tour book.

      whistle stop tour
      I think the guides last job was as F1 racing driver. Make sure you strap in!! The visit to the Kelpies involved a brisk 20 minute walk there and back - unfortunately I dont do brisk 40 minute walks anymore - all to save £3 by not using the official [nearer] car park. This is not a leisurely trip. Felt I was being hurried along all the time. Probably cheaper to take a black cab from Glasgow It would have been nice if the boat trip at the Falkirk wheel had been included

      Driver knew nothing for very pricy tour
      Hungarian driver told us he knew nothing about either of these sites. Di d not allow for time to ride the Falkirk wheel. Very pricy tour and very disappointing. Would not recommend this tour at all.

      Disappointing
      We were rushed at The Kelpies. We were given 45 minutes to walk quite a distance to see them and walk back again. No time to go to gift shop or inspect The Kelpies properly.

      Would have liked to have had more time at each landmark.
      Driver was very polite and pleasant but we felt rushed. We were given only 45 minutes to see Kelpies and we had a long walk there and back.

      Unforgettable Experience!
      We were on a waitlist for May 5 (Regal Princess) and luckily were able to reserve a tour. Service and communication were great from start to finish and we want to recognize Karen for making the tour truly unforgettable! She was very informative and funny! .

      A hidden gem, check it out.
      I needed a burst of excitement for my trip to Glasgow. Something unusual I would otherwise have missed. I got that here, with an exciting trip to nature at dusk. For 2 hours I was physically and mentally somewhere else. I would recommend it.

      Such a Unique Experience
      My friend surprised me with this adventure and I must admit this was once in a lifetime experience. I never ever was curious before visiting a forest at night time in the dark, but now I understand what I missed out on. We drove through some dark narrow country roads which had already an eerie feeling to it, but then we arrived to the forest and went on foot. The guide gave us some pretty powerful head torches which made things easier to navigate between the trees. The exciting part started when we had to descend into a gorge in the dark. It gave me a fright first when I saw the downward route but our guide was super experienced in terms of showing us every single and I mean Every single step. Like he knew the place with closed eyes or something. It was just so cool. Once we arrived to the gorge, you could hear the water gushing down between the rocks and just the sheer silence that went with it. We walked through the water barefooted and we spotted some really interesting looking fish, almost looked like a group of tiny eels. The biggest surprise of all was hearing some squeaky sounds and then some really cute otters appeared out of nowhere. I couldn’t believe my eyes! I would have never of thought seeing so many wildlife in the middle of the night. So so worth it ! I can highly recommend it as it is such a unique experience. Thank you and I hope to come back in the future.

      Phenomenal Experience
      We had the best time! The drive was pleasant and we drove though beautiful Scottish countryside scenery. The hike starts out going across some fields where we could see the waterfall in the distance. Ferenc pointed out heather and grouse during our trail. The hike was fantastic, the views spectacular and the air was fresh and clean. Ferenc's expertise was appreciated as he guided us down the trail to the base of the waterfall. He checked things out by going ahead and then coming back and telling us what we would do to be most safe. He gave us step by step directions when climbing down part of the waterfall and I always felt safe, even though it seemed very challenging at times. Ferenc will take many amazing photos of you on this lovely adventure. It was by far the most fun and one of a kind experience I have had in the UK. I will definitely do this again and highly recommend Ferenc wherever her is available.

      Out of this World Experience
      I just attended this Experience and I must admit it was something that I have never ever experienced quite like this. Even though you are in a swimming pool, being able to discover breathing underwater for the first time, it really shakes your world. First, your mind keeps telling you that it cannot be done, so you feel like you don’t want to let go the side of the pool and your comfort zone, but with the help of Ferenc, the Instructor, you gradually gain confidence and sink beneath the surface. The feeling is indescribable, the way your body becomes almost weightless, the calm feeling of hearing and watching the bubbles floating in front of your eyes. I learnt a lot and I mean a lot during these couple hours ! At the end I felt like a different person and I cannot wait to become a scuba diver and discover the magic of the Seas. I will for sure start my Scuba Diving course in the near future. Amazing Experience, Instructor and I will be back for more !

      Definitely recommended, very unique Experience
      This was an amazing experience. The host was very polite, picked me and my friend up in the city centre. We felt like VIPs travelling in a black Mercedes minibus. Although the route to the site goes through mostly on a highway, we thoroughly enjoyed the ride, was not too fast, so we could still gaze out to the passing fields dotted with grazing animals. Once we arrived, we went for a three hour walk in the forest, alongside the Clyde river bank. The walk is quite easy as there’s a path that you are following and Ferenc pointed out some beautiful flowers and interesting moss formations alongside the path. We stopped at several lookouts to take some beautiful photos of the waterfalls on the river. Ferenc offered to take some amazing photos from different angles, with the waterfall behind us. He was very knowledgeable about the area, took us to the other side of the river where not a lot of people go to so we could even have a better view of the area. We had some interesting conversations with him, about Scotland, the Experiences he does, his travels and of course, the scuba diving he has done around the world. He is a very interesting person to spend the afternoon with. Very energetic and friendly personality. Feels like you have known him for a while, which made the Experience even more enjoyable. The place he takes you to is just breathtaking, definitely worth a visit which we couldn’t have done it on our own, not without a car for sure. Hope to go to one of his other Experiences in the future.

      Can be done on your own
      I hesitated to write a review because the operator of this tour is clearly a hard-working person but I do have concerns about this tour. 1) The guide climbed the guardrail at a scenic lookout over a rapids portion of the river and while straddling it, first encouraged me to do the same, then when I declined to do so, offered to take the photo himself, only coming down when I walked away. 2) The driving was fast, aggressive with abrupt stops, failing to attend to the flow of traffic. Nausea inducing. 3) The guide kept trampling on plants and roots that were off the beaten path, explaining that he was searching for wood suitable to make a slingshot. This didn't seem consistent with the spirit of a hike at a "UNESCO Heritage and Wildlife Reserve". 4) The timing of the tour is awkward, as it starts so late that the shops and museum at the site are closed upon arrival and upon return to Glasgow, it is late for dinner. The tour guide was also unable to answer any of the questions I had about the region. It wasn't so much a tour as a walk on a trail beside a river with a friendly, enthusiastic complete stranger. Overall, I felt as though this tour operator could benefit from apprenticing with an existing tour operator to learn the safety and ecology standards of the industry. You're better off taking the bus out and doing this hike on your own timing and at your own pace.

    Beautiful location not too far outside of the city. Our guide knew the area very well.
    He took us to some amazing spots and was very helpful with taking photos etc.
    He seemed to be in a hurry to get there and get back when driving. When we were at the site though, he did take his time. Total trip took a 3-4 hours

    So many good photos. It was just the tour guide, my dad and myself. Guide was very patient. Anyone should be able to hike this. It is a little rough and you might get messy but it is doable.
    Due to the fact there were only two of us we got back early. The glen was really nice. Be warned if you go in the water, it might be freezing cold.
    Our guide was great and helped everyone through hiking the whole trail.
