          A Great Tour and a Wonderful Time!
          This review is actually for December of 2022, but I am unable to select that far back in time. BUT I think it speak volumes to what a great trip we had that I am leaving this review over a year later. Gordon was a wonderful host and arranged great stops along the way. He showed us some historical sites and had a wealth of knowledge about the surrounding areas. There were 4 us in total and he was able to accommodate us comfortably. Planning the trip was easy and we were able to say different places we would like to visit and he worked on making it happen. We were a challenging group because it was winter and still very much dealing with COVID restrictions, but he succeeded nonetheless. Then to add more challenges, we needed to adjust the trip due to an extra experience we wanted to add on and he was very flexible there. One of the stops he arranged, ended up being just the 5 of us and the staff which led to a very intimate tasting experience where we left feeling like locals. All in all, it was a wonderful time and if/when we make it back to the highlands, we plan to book another visit with Gordon. I'm only sorry I did not get this review posted sooner!

          This is an amazing site to visit. It must have taken the people who built them a long time because some of the stones are very large. This is a must for all ages. Easy walking.

          Fantastic Day with Jim
          We had an absolutely fantastic day with Jim. We toured through the highlands. He took us to Tain as I wanted to visit my family ancestry. The rest of the day we let Jim provide suggestions and take us to places that he thought we would enjoy. My travel tip is book a trip with Jim and let him do what he does best and show you Scotland. He knows the country better and take you to places less traveled. Our day with Jim was our favorite day in Scotland. He is fun and funny! He really listens to you and what you are trying to get out of vacation and find place that you will enjoy. He was on time, polite, fun, and owns a comfortable and clean Audi! If we ever return, we will hire Jim for the full trip!

          Wonderful Tour and Guide!
          A group of six needed a ride from Inverness to Edinburgh with a few stops in Cairngorms. Gordon was a delightful guide! The ride was perfect as well as our stops, including a brief hike. We can't say enough about Gordon--delightful, full of local and Scottish facts and lore, comfortable vehicle, flexible and accommodating, good conversationalist. He was also extremely responsive during the booking process. We'd book with him again. Gordon, thank you so much for making our Scotland trip so smooth!

          Gordon was amazing !
          We booked Grandtours for 3 days. Gordon communicated with me months in advance and provided recommendations for distillery visits as well as made all reservations for distillery tours. He picked me and my family (4 people) in his spacious van from the Inverness airport. He drove us to all the distilleries (Glenlivet, Cardhu, GlenFarcis to name a few) and on the way gave us a wealth of information about Scotland. He also accommodated a last minute change and took us to see Loch Ness. Finally Samatha from his team drove us to Edinburgh Very patient, very helpful, just genuinely very nice ! Highly recommend !!!!

          Simply The Best
          If you're looking for a custom tour then look no further than Gordon at GrandTours! Gordon will with with you to create an itinerary that fits your needs precisely. Almost as important his vehicles are new and comfortable. And if you're one of those people that require prompt start times, know that he is the most prompt guide we've ever had the pleasure to work with--often times being 30-45 min early just to be safe. Gordon is just awesome!

          Best Scotland Tour Guide
          Gordon took us on a fantastic tour of 4 Spyside distilleries with a lovely lunch. Gordon is fantastic, he is a great driver/guide with an extensive knowledge of the area and distilleries. We had a lot of fun with Gordon and would highly recommend booking him.

          Grand Tours of Scotland - The Only Way to See Scotland Properly!
          Gordon at Grand Tours is Scotland's best ambassador! We spent 2 days with Gordon touring the Highlands, the Isle of Skye and the North Coast. It was nothing short of spectacular! We saw more in two days than we could ever have imagined. Gordon's easy going manner and wealth of knowledge of both history and local lore is what made this trip truly memorable. If you want to see the real heart and soul of Scotland, you need to see it through the eyes of a local like Gordon, who embodies the spirit and passion of this magical land.

          A proper personalised service!
          I had never been to the Highlands and I had never liked whisky, until spending one day with with Gordon. He had already taken my friends on a few distillery tours in the summer and upon learning I was not a whisky drinker, he imparted his wisdom on all things whisky and even suggested which ones I would like. He must of been right in his knowledge, as I walked away with two bottles of the stuff. Gordon also provided us with lunch and drive us back to our accommodation, a proper gent is all I can say.

          2nd tour we did with Gordon, and we enjoyed it very much! Interesting and informative tour, lots of lovely photos. Private tour is ideal because it allowed us to customize as we wanted. Highly recommend booking tours with Gordon!

          Absolutely fantastic whisky tour!
          Let me start by saying that Gordon was a lovely guide, fun and knowledgable. Like having a friend along for the beautiful drive up into the highlands - a friend who knows a good deal more about whisky and history! He arrived promptly with a very comfortable vehicle built for the slightly icy roads and drove us through the sunrise, asking us about our favorites before settling on a few distilleries that he thought we would like. We were never rushed and felt that we could make changes all the while. He also was kind enough to find us a great spot for lunch in between the tastings. All of his recommendations proved to be great ones and we really enjoyed the tour from start to finish. I would encourage anyone to trust him with your tour and you won't be disappointed. I will certainly be back for a longer one next time!

          Gordon was a fantastic tour guide. Great communication, very knowledgeable, and he was able to adapt the tour to ensure we saw the things we most wanted to see. He really went the extra mile to make sure we had a great day. Would happily recommend.

          Private MacKenzie Geneology Tour
          I was starting to feel frustrated that I may not be able to see the three things I wanted to see in a single day tour as many tours did not offer flexibility or they had big ticket prices for customization. Then I found Gordon and GrandTours and problem solved. He was able to secure a private tour to Castle Leod (even though they ate closed dueing the winter season), a visit to Eliean Donan and a chance for me touch the waters of Loch Ness. And all of this was for a reasonable price. Wow! Gordon was in good communication with me from initial planning to the day we met. He was timely, had a very comfortable van, we felt very safe with him, and he obviously knew the area well. He had great knowledge about everything we asked him, was kind, considerate, funny, and a gentleman. Most importantly I felt he genuinely cared about our experience which made the day trip even more special. You can believe we will book with him again. You should book with him too.

        Gordon is an amazing guide, catering our trip to Isle of Skye to exactly what we wanted. He was so well informed and educated us on everything along the way. This was one (if not THE) highlight of our trip and would recommend him to anyone looking to explore the Highlands!

        Our private Isle of Skye tour out of Fort William with Callum was all we hoped for and more than we could have imagined. Like the prior reviewer, we were on a group tour that included a ferry crossing from Mallaig and then a very brief drive in just the southern part of Skye; it didn't include the iconic sights I most wanted to see. My wife encouraged me to search for a private tour and Gordon, the owner of Grand Tours of Scotland, was extraordinarily helpful and responsive in scheduling one for us even though he personally already was booked with someone else on the day that worked with our group tour schedule. I had confidence in his selection of just the right person to take us and it was the best decision we could have made.

        Callum immediately noticed I had my Nikon DSLR camera and deduced, correctly, that I was looking for amazing photo opportunities. From that point on, his primary motivation seemed to be making sure we got to enjoy as much as we possibly could of his beloved Isle of Skye. And, boy, did we!

        Almost as much as that, though, we felt we made a great friend with whom we had much in common. We truly regretted parting at the end of our wonderful day with him.

        We will book tours through Grand Tours of Scotland and ask Gordon to schedule Callum with us on our future trips to Scotland -- and there WILL be future trips to Scotland!!

        Isle of Skye was beautiful and was the absolute highlight of my trip to Scotland. Green rolling hills, tall craggy mountains, interesting geological formations, great hiking with scenic views… Skye is incredible. This tour was fantastic and Gordon was a great tour guide, very knowledgeable, friendly, and engaging. He spoke of history and legends and even provided a celebratory whisky shot after one of our hikes. Thank you, Gordon. Slàinte!

        Excellent experience from the start, prompt replies to inquiries, interesting and informative tour. Gordon has a lot of knowledge about the area, and happy to answer all our questions. Comfortable vehicle with sunroof. Private tour was very convenient for our family of 4 adults, and Gordon was flexible to adjust on the go depending on the weather. Highly recommended, would book with Gordon again.

        We booked 2 full day tours with Gordon - the Culloden tour and the Skye tour. Both days were amazing! Gordon adapted the tours to suit our different interests and mobility limitations. We covered a lot of ground and hit the highlights and some hidden gems, from castles to distilleries to natural wonders. The entire area is absolutely beautiful. Gordon is extremely knowledgeable and a very kind guide.

        Gordon D was an excellent guide with knowledge of the area and its attractions. He was able to turn a blustery, wet day into an interesting one discovering the treasures of Skye and outwitting the rain to get the best photographs.
        We enjoyed our day out together.

        I arranged this tour for myself and my very active 82 year old mother. Gordon was the best! He showed us so much and was extremely accommodating for my mom who wanted to hike but not on hard trails or too far. Gordon was able to give my mom and I a great experience and a taste of hiking in the Highlands! Gordon was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our questions. It was so great to have a local show you the sights. I highly recommend this trip!!!!
