This tour is well worth the money, visiting many tourist spots and Charlie, the bus driver/tour guide was amazing. He had commentary and music that showed great history and cultural knowledge of our trip, the areas we visited and the culture of Scotland. Highly recommended.

Very enjoyable tour on 31 July 2016 to Loch Lomond and Oban. Did not enter Inveraray Castle as instead walked around the beautiful village nearby. Continued north to the Highlands amid stunning scenary, saw Highland cows. Fish and chips lunch in Oban. Our guide, ( David ? ) was a fountain of knowledge with just the right amount of History....

I loved this tour! Highly recommend. We departed from Glasgow (although it departs from Edinburgh also if you are staying there) and made our way up to Inverness for the night, making many stops along the way. Our guide, Hamish, was excellent. He really made this an unforgettable experience and I think everyone on the tour would agree. He tailored... More

We booked the Glasgow Shore excursion while taking the British isles cruise. Our driver/guide Jamie was waiting for us just outside the gate of the ship dock when we got there at 8:30am for our 9am meeting time. All the cruisers who booked this tour had no problem finding the coach except 2, Jamie was waiting patiently for the missing... More

I had booked this tour based on previous reviews and the tour pretty much did what it said on the tin, a long day visiting Loch Ness, Glencoe and the Highlands. As I wanted to show my husband as much of Scotland as possible, I thought this trip would be perfect but bear in mind that it starts from 8am... More

Concerns: Highlands-Whiskey tour from Glasgow Although our high expectations, it was not unfortunately not really exciting. - The tour guide continuously repeated that he didn't do this tour so often - talked far to slow - told us more about his wife than about any other things. And he wasn't even possitive about his wife. One could at least explain... More

Superb tour, fantastic tour guide Stephen who has obviously done his homework on all the history and stories of old. In between chatting he played songs through the coach system which were relevant to the places we were visiting and by scottish artists. The variety of styles of music was to suit all tastes. As well as the stops on... More

Had a tour up to the highlands with Charlie and it was beyond amazing. He was so informed and gave us the full Scottish experience. The scenery was like nothing I've ever seen. By far one of my favourite things I've done in Scotland. Would do this again for sure!!
