A really excellent day out in the Highlands. A perfect mixture of history, chit chat and beautiful scenery (… and some whisky). We would (and very well may!) return to Scotland to do another tour with Iconic.

One of the main reasons we travelled to Scotland from Canada was to see the rugged and beautiful landscape of the highlands, as well as learn a bit of history about the area. This trip was exactly that and more! Our tour guide, Graham, was incredibly knowledgeable. He truly went above and beyond to ensure we would have a an all-around amazing trip. From history to geology to culture, we found ourselves wishing there were more hours in the day. If we could give the trip 10 stars, we would! Thanks again for an incredible day!

Taking a private tour is the only way to go. Everything was personalized to us and what we wanted to see and experience. Gary, our driver and guide, was knowledgeable and knew how to avoid crowds and give us a great day out to the highlands. Extra bonus... The vehicle was immaculate and had an amazing full roof skylight so we could see up the mountains. Hamish and Honey the Highland Coos are not to be missed.

I was looking for a way for my American family of 6 adults to travel from Edinburgh to Inverness without renting a car and was so lucky to find Will at Iconic Tours. His personable emails helped him create the perfect tour for my family. Not only did he plan a whiskey tasting at a Loch, he planned our trip to Glenfinnan Viaduct to coordinate with the train passing by! We had a wonderful lunch at a quaint restaurant. We learned so much about the history of Scotland. Our trip was full of memorable moments thanks to Will.
