A really excellent day, covering the main attractions in Skye. Donald's cheerful, informative commentary, and his attempts to teach us all some "garlic" added to the value and made the day very interesting. The frequent stops were of ideal length, and an alternative shorter walk was offered at a particularly hilly spot.
The seating was comfortable, even for middle aged people with creaky knees and we would thoroughly recommend the tour.

This was an awesome tour from start to finish. We went in early April 2022 and the weather was dicey all day, but our amazing tour guide, Donald, adjusted on the fly to have us in the right spot for the right amount of time when it mattered most, so most sights came out very well. We had 7 passengers in the group which was nice and small, and the van was very comfortable and quiet.
Donald was a charming wealth of information and the tour covers some serious ground at the most amazing sites on this beautiful island. Well worth the time. Well worth the money. Great tour!

We did this as a private tour and Donald was wonderful even if the weather was not. He built the itinerary based on our wishes and added little extras to make it better. He is extremely knowledgeable about Skye, friendly but yet professional. I would highly recommend this tour.

Went on a day tour with Skye Scenic Tours. I have previously been on other tours around Scotland and this was by far the best! A very good price for the experience and Donald was amazing. He made sure everyone was having fun and had lots of funny and interesting facts to tell us. The bus takes up to eight people which makes it much more personal and cozy in my opinion. I highly recommend!

Donald made the trip for us with his knowledgeable insight into the island's heritage and culture and witty repartee. Great overview of top sites enabling us to make decisions on how to spend the rest of our holiday. Being a mini bus tour enabled us to meet tourists from other countries and chat about our different experiences of travelling. A really satisfactory day out, excellent value for money and great not to have drive around Skye's somewhat interesting roads.

This tour was the absolute perfect way to see all of the glorious sights on the Isle of Skye. My wife and I couldn't imagine how long it would have taken to navigate the island to see everything that we were able to see on the tour. Donald is the perfect tour guide - very knowledgable and funny. Knowing the island so well, he was constantly changing the itinerary on the fly due to the weather, while always checking with us on what we wanted to see. In the end, he was able to take us everywhere... entertaining us all along the way. This tour can't be beat, especially for the price.

This tour was amazing, Donald is a highly skilled driver and gave a very educational, good humoured and enlightening commentary whilst negotiating single track roads full of camper vans. We took in all the main sights, some of them from unusual places. He was able to answer all our questions about the island and its history. He was also attentive to our needs. I would highly recommend this tour.

We really enjoyed our scenic tour of Skye with Donald, who was a great laugh and very knowledgeable. We were picked up and dropped off from where we were staying, which is an excellent service.

We were given plenty of time at each stop to take
it all in. There is some walking involved, some of which is across stepping stones and loose rock, but this is optional. Donald knows all the best places to stop for those all important photo opportunities.

There is a stop at a new cafeteria where you can purchase drinks and snacks but not much else, so would recommend taking a packed lunch.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend doing this tour. It was approximately 8-9 hours long, but the time flew and we enjoyed every minute.

An excellent and very full day with Donald who, as a true local from Skye, knows his stuff. A perfect sized tour, only 8 people max. This packs in a lot, mainly on the top half of Skye, which allows you to then go back and spend more time at those places you want to see again. A reasonable amount of time at each stop considering the itinerary, a very nice lunch spot at Neist Point and the Quiraing was an absolute highlight but needs its own visit to do it justice. Even having to wear masks in the tourbus didn't put a downer on the fun - Donald has a story or two for sure. A great Skye adventure!

Had a lovely and memorable tour around the Skye, all thanks to Donald who was very friendly and has a wonderful sense of humour . The trip was full of interesting facts and stories by Donald, about every place we visited. He is a wonderful teacher as well, since by the end of the trip we learnt few sentences in Gaelic. Would highly recommend taking the 'Skye in a day tour' with Donald for anyone visiting Skye.
