    The trip was wonderful. The views were breathtaking and our host, Gary, was not only informative, but funny and just an all-around very likeable guy. He made a long bus ride very pleasant. We stopped for lunch and bathroom breaks on the way up; and then for some whiskey icecream on the return trip.
    We chose to tour the castle ruins and then take a 30-minute boat ride on Loch Ness. WOW!
    I highly recommend the trip. It's all all-day adventure and well worth the time and money.

    We loved every single bit of our trip-from all the amazing stories and all the food recommendations. Our guide Neil was lovely and we got to know a lot of interesting facts about Scotland

    We had a lovely time on this tour, which is owed largely to our guide, Scott. Views of the breathtaking Scottish scenery were interspersed with his fun commentary, from fascinating historical context to hilarious jokes and anecdotes. My favourite part was his carefully curated playlist of songs related to Scotland, which Scott played in conjunction with the information he provided throughout the tour. The music really helped set the vibe, and made the (long) bus ride incredibly enjoyable. We even sang along together on the way back! There were several bathroom breaks and opportunities to take pictures of the landscape. Overall, we had a great experience with The Hairy Coo, would definitely recommend!

    We just finished an amazing tour of the Scottish highlands and the isle of skye. Rabbies took care of every detail. We had the best guide Queen Kelly of Scotland. She kept us laughing, educated us and shared some about herself. Lovely young person - she made this trip for us.

    We had the most incredible day with Highland Explorer Tours.

    Traveling with 3 kids, Steve B made the trip the best and I wouldn’t imagine doing another trip with another guide.

    12 hour seems like a long time when evaluating a trip but it is the way to go. (It even got us thinking about a multi day trip next time)

    Stops in Glen Coe and taking the boat on Loch Ness were our families highlights.

    Wonderful tour! Alan, the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and personable. He kept us informed of current and historical events of the Highlands. Lots of stops at truly interesting locations for photos, lunch, and rest breaks. Ashley is a great driver, very safe and made sure we were comfortable. The bus was modern, clean, and a pleasure to ride in. Well worth the cost!

    The views are stunning and the stops were well-chosen and well timed. Our guide Aleix was fabulous - he told us such interesting and relatable facts throughout the journey (lots of connections with popular culture - the story about Braveheart was incredible) and did so with humour and in a very clear way. This was my second time in Scotland, and his entertaining and heartfelt storytelling made me love Scotland even more than I did the first time <3 I also couldn't believe he shared all of this encyclopaedic knowledge while driving for 12 hours - I hope he gets paid 2 salaries because that's a 2 persons' job. Had a wonderful day, I highly recommend the tour!

    I had excellent time travelling with Jamie on a 3-day Highlands and Skye trip. It was a balanced history and nature exploration experience. Jamie took us to numerous picturesque places, showed the best photo spots and told many captivating stories from the history of Scotland and its legends. I had a feeling that we had just the right number of stops to make the trip interesting but not too tiring. Some stops were quick while others were more chilled where we had time to enjoy the stunning views without a hurry.

    The bus was comfortable, the hotel was excellent with a very good breakfast. Logistically, we were always on time.

    Highly recommended for both individuals and families.
