“Highland private guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

WOW with Gordon definitely enhanced our trip to the highlands. Our family was interested in locating a few ancestral clan sites and also hiking around some of the beautiful glens west of Inverness. Gordon had done some homework and helped us locate the family name sites. It was WONDERFUL not to drive and let him navigate the roads. We stopped by a great art gallery, h ad a fabulous picnic, took a fantastic hike through Plodda Fallls and beyond. We would not have ventured to the places we did without his expertise and car. He has been a mountain guide before so he was very comfortable and knowledgable leading us around the glens. He also was a good fit with our college kids.

“"WOW" doesn't say it all.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

Don't Miss your chance with WOW. Last year we were traveling in Scotland and booked a one day tour with WOW. We had a wonderful time so when we decided to travel Scotland again this year, and include Orkney in our travels, the choice was a natural one - we chose "WOW" again. Like most people we have very limited vacation time and the fact that we chose them again should let you know how impressed we were the first time around. From the minute Zane picked us up at our hotel it was obvious we were in for a very special experience. Zane had taken the time to research our interests and brought the Highlands and Orkney alive for us in a way that a book or written guide could not have done. From the breathtaking walks along desolate coast trails to the awe inspiring Neolithic ruins we came to see a special part of Orkney we would have missed on our own. If you are like us, and seek to make the very most of limited travel time, then I highly recommend you contact Gordon and book a trip you won't forget. We are coming back next year for a trip to the outer Hebrides and wouldn't consider any other company than WOW.

“Even Better than expected!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

We asked for a tour of the Highlands that was geared toward the "Monach of the Glen" enthusiast. Gordon not only took us to the sites we requested, but also researched and added other locations that made this outing even more enjoyable. His knowledge of and enthusiasm for Scottish history and lore was impressive and enjoyable. I would recommend that you add them to your itinerary.

“great guide and perfect organization”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

I organized an excursion with a group of 17 students.
Gordon was of a great help and always here to answer any requests quickly.
The excursion was great, super well-organized, taking into account my requests. Very funny guy on top of that.
What I do like as well is the fact of booking with someone independent who knows his region.
For the next trip I have to organize in Scotland, I am 100% sure to book via WOW Scotland for a longer trip.

“Couldn't ask for more!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

Gordon Pearson was incredibly helpful from the moment I contacted him. Determined to see Red deer on my visit, the flexibility of the tour and the Gordon's knowledge of the area meant I wasn't disappointed! Not only that but he went above and beyond to ensure that I saw as much as possible on my day tour. Great value for money and an experience I fear other tour companies would fail to match. Would happily recommend to anyone!
