A safe and careful driver. Knowledgeable and passionate about Skye. Oh, and the sights were awesome too. Despite bad weather Bill was able to provide us with... More

We only had one full day on Skye so thought it best to do a day tour. Bill's tour was recommended to us by the proprietor of the B and B we stayed at. Local knowledge is always good. Bill is a great tour guide - interesting, a great story teller and a sense of humour. The weather wasn't great... More

My friend and I have visited Skye this June. We joined Bill's group and he was just amazing, funny and knowledgeable person who showed us around the skye. We also have adequate time to explore the trails on our own with his guidance. This is the best tour experiences I have every have. All the spots we went were stunning... More

Without a car, it's tough to get about on Skye. However, Bill did an amazing job of meeting our needs and fitting in everything we wanted to see. He was informative and entertaining. One of the ten most memorable days of my life. Book and enjoy!

Four active "Seniorish" ladies did this day tour from Portree. It was excellent in many ways. The guide, Bill, was a wonderful story teller and historian, so we were engrossed in the journey and locations. We had alot of time at the stops to take long hikes, that was really unexpected yet appreciated. We stopped at a unique, exceptional small... More

We visited Skye for the Bank Holiday. We spent the day with Bill and Real Scottish Journeys touring the wonderful Isle of Skye and what a great day it was! Bill had the day orchestrated from the places we went to see to the wonderful stories he shared with us to the endless facts he offered to the beautiful music... More

Although the weather was truly terrible on the day, he still managed to provide an entertaining tour which included a walk to the Fairy Pools (got soo wet!!), Kilt Rock, The Quiraing and Fairy Glen plus photo stops for...

We highly recommend this tour to anybody contemplating a day visit around Skye. Our guide, Bill was simply a joy to listen to - very informative, funny, and importantly a masterful story teller (very important when talking about Scottish history). We found it more interesting listening to him than the actual sights itself! We loved it especially when he took... More

This was such a fun day! Bill was a great tour guide. I loved that he incorporated folklore and stories along with the historical aspect. He was very knowledgeable and personable and allowed us plenty of time to explore at each location.

This tour easily rates five bubbles. The reason is, of course the tour guide, Bill. He is knowledgeable, personable, tells funny stories and regales you with the historic, geologic and mythologic background of the Island. He is the consummate story teller. Add to that his music collection, which he plays in between his talks and you have the perfect background... More
