    I went into the trip with no expectations because I have never done a haggis adventure tour before. But it was the best tour I have ever been on. Tops contiki, top deck, intrepid I’ve been on the them all. Gill was the best tour manager, her knowledge of the country and the stories she told was relatable and extremely extensive and exciting. She was down to earth, funny, and truely cared about how our tour was travelling. The highlands were phenomenal, such beautiful landscapes. And we got to plenty of time in each location we stopped. The Hogmanay festival was absolutely wild, truely something to experience when in Scotland. Lots of Harry Potter references in Edinburgh so great for all of the book series buffs.

    This was my first tour with haggis and it was by far one of the best tours I've ever been apart of. Gillian was an engaging and spirited tour guide and made the bus trips quite exciting. The trip was planned out well and Gill kept us informed and took care of us every step of the way. I'm glad I was apart of this trip and in the end, I hope Gill gets a raise. Just because she is just that amazing

    We've been to over 30 countries and Sandy was easily one of the best and most helpful guides out there. Great storyteller and true Scotsman, he went well out of his way to keep us informed and entertained and we thoroughly enjoyed our time. - The 3-day Isle of Skye portion was incredible even in the winter and had very decent hostels (minus food) and driving time - The Edinburgh piece was left open-ended, which might not be the best for those who want to continue an organized tour. Still, you'll have the chance to regroup for the welcome party, walking tour, ceilidh, Hogmanay torch procession/street party/Loony Dook, and the closing party. (Another option is just to do the 3-day Skye tour.) The Edinburgh hostel was top notch. Overall, highly recommended and absolutely will visit Scotland again!

    3.5 - Good

    The Haggis 7 day Sky High pre-Hogmanay tour was amazing! We saw a lot of the highlands and were allowed enough free time to explore on our own! Massive highlights were the Hike on day 1, climbing an amazing snowy waterfall and the castles and scenery along the way! Negative- Morags Lodge was great and really well thought out as a hostel however the heater in our room was broken and when we asked for more blankets we were not allowed any more. The same sort of situation at Saucy Mary's- they turned the heating and hot water off at night so the showers and our room were freezing cold when we got back from Hanging out (1am). The service at SM's was also slow and the husband was quite unfriendly towards us! The Hogmanay tour in Edinburgh was great! Specially loved the Ceilidh dancing! If our walking tour was more informative it would have been a little better, more history and facts than showing us the best pub!
