Owner description: Discover the beauty of the Isle of Skye in a day without the stress of driving with local knowledge and information from Donald and Roddy, your local Skye guides. We offer two relaxed day tours of Skye at the cost of £40 per person, one visiting Trotternish & Fairy Pools (daily from mid March to mid October) and the other visiting Neist Point & West of Skye (April to September, Monday to Friday) in a comfortable minibus with aircon. Both tours pick up from Uig or Portree areas. We also offer a day tour of Harris and Lewis during the summer on Saturdays only from mid May to beginning of September. This £65 per person tour picks up from Portree or Uig and gives the visitor a taste of the beautiful Western Isles before returning back to Skye late evening. This tour cost includes outgoing and return ferry fares. Experience the historical sites and magnificent beaches in 1 day.

I'm so happy we booked this tour! It would have been challenging to navigate Skye on our own and see all that Donald showed us in one day. The trip was perfectly paced so it never felt like we were spending too much time in the van, even though he said we probably covered about 120 miles during the day's tour. We had plenty of opportunities to get out and take pictures and we never felt rushed. My husband and I wanted to do the tour at the Talisker distillery so Donald dropped us off, took the other passengers to another location, and then they met us in the gift shop at Talisker afterward -it was nice that he was so flexible.

This trip would be a great value even at twice the price.

Our cheerful & humorous guide Donald picked us up from our B&B. WE were brought all over the Isle of Skye to see standard tourist spots as well as non standard fabulous scenic sites. The whole trip was well narrated, include a dose of Scottish history. Thank you Donald. This is a must-join if you come to Skye.

I had one full day in Skye to see everything. Having no idea what to see as a first timer without a car, I booked this tour based on other reviews. From the moment we got on the bus after Donald came out of his way to pick us up in Broadford, we had a ball. His wit and good humour had us laughing, and he made us feel comfortable straightaway by introducing us to the other people on the bus and soon we were all chatting like old friends. The tour itself was well timed, we covered a huge amount of ground and made a lot of stops, yet it never felt as if we were being rushed. Donald gave us a lot of information presented in an entertaining way and as a born and bred local he gives a different perspective than just any tour guide. Nothing was a bother, including dropping us back to Broadford at the end and even going back during the day when someone forgot their jacket at a stop! We left the tour with great memories, wonderful photos, friendly waves goodbye and the feeling of having made a perfect choice of Skye day tour. Thanks Donald.

We could have never seen as much of Skye on our own as we did with Donald. He took us to all the great places we wanted to go plus a wee bit more. He plans it so that you have the right amount of time to enjoy things and take pictures. Wear good shoes because you will do some walking. Donald is full of great Scottish wit and weaves it into his narration during the tour. That help make the experience even more memorable.

I loved my tour with Donald of Skye Scenic Tours. He was funny and informative, and made sure the group had input into what we really wanted to see. We got to see the wonderful scenery as well as some secret places only he knew about. Thanks for a great day out, Donald!
