“Highly recommend Out and About Tours”
Reviewed October 19, 2011

This was our second trip to the Isle of Lewis, and our second time using Chris Ryan of Out and About Tours. I highly recommend Chris! He really makes the Isle of Lewis (and Harris) come alive with his commentary. And, you will be happy that he (not you) is driving on the winding island roads! Sit back and enjoy the scenery. Chris is a wealth of information on the historical sites, and also knows all the birds, flora and fauna, plus the history of the islands. We spent three days with him on each visit, and they were a great way to see the area.

“Hiking, spectacular scenery, wildlife, history, tied up with a great sense of humour”
Reviewed September 25, 2011

We spent three days with Chris getting to know Harris and Lewis. It was a combination of some great walks, nature and the splendid archaeological sites of the islands, tied up with Chris' ability to listen to what we were most interested in. He even threw in a wee bit of retail therapy and a few minutes at the end of one day to see the Lewis Chessmen who had come home for summer vacation.

There is no way we could have seen as much or done as much without his expertise.

“A thoroughly wonderful day out with a knowledgeable and friendly host”
Reviewed August 25, 2011

We stayed on the Isle of Lewis for a week and wanted a guided tour of a particular area. Whilst there is a superb selection of Wildlife, it can be a hit & miss game! We chose Chris Ryan - a qualified Scottish Ranger to try and get us in sight of Wildlife. He collected us (2 Parents and 2 tall Teenagers) in his roomy MPV and took us to the Lochs. The weather (as ever) wasn't too kind to us but Chris was great company, full of enthusiasm and great facts. He got us what we wanted, great selection of wildlife - including 2 fantastic Sea Eagles! The area was stunning, the day so very worthwhile - and he knows everybody, and most important - where to stop for morning coffee and lunch! A great day out!!
