Very well run operation. Guide, John, was very engaging and knowledgable. The trip gives you a good understanding of the vastness of the estate and the way it helps preserve valuable wildlife and native trees. Saw both types of deer and some interesting birds. Binoculars are provided. Highly recommended.

Neil made our day. What better way for our family to experience the Scottish Highlands than with a true Scot taking us on a 1/2 day trip to see the beauty and history of the area. He was so accommodating - stopping anywhere we asked to take photos and seeking out his secret places to see the most scenic views and wildlife. Our family had an excellent time listening to stories of his family's interactions with the Royal family and legends of the area. Great snack of Scotish cheese and a spot of Scotch were nice too! You can't go wrong with a stay in Braemar or Ballater and you don't want to miss a tour with Neil and Braemar Highland Safaris.

Neil did an excellent job of explaining the history of the area and identifying the local fauna as he took my reunion friends and I on the tour, the views were spectacular and we were very fortunate to see a number of red stag, grouse and even a couple of golden eagles. Everytime we asked to stop so we could take photos he was more than happy to do so and it was a memorable experience for all.

Our guide Neil was extremely knowledgeable and gave us a good history of the local area, and looked after us really well. He provided us with binoculars and was more than happy for us to ask him to stop if we wanted to catch any photos. We saw plenty of wild stag, grouse and even saw two eagles flying overhead. The samples of traditional cheese, oat biscuits and whiskey certainly kept us warm! Definitely worth doing if you're in the area.
