    Yvonne was a fun tour leader who knew just how to keep us interested in the many different stories of scotland. I am so glad I went on this tour with her!

    Yvonne was an excellent guide and the information and scenery spectacular. Unfortunately the tour was not right for me. It is designed for young people on very tight budgets with a “party” element. I regret I didn’t do a smaller more personal tour. This is nothing against Yvonne or Haggis. I believe the information might be helpful to other people of a “mature” age.

    This tour is perfect for solo travellers as well as couples, groups of friends... anyone who wants to learn about Scotland and experience as much as possible in just a few days. As a solo traveler I got to meet so many new people from all over the world and I wish it lasted longer. I never thought I could see that much in just 5 days, so many historic sites, so many stories, so much history and so many villages and towns we drove through and stopped in. Our guide and driver Rich was an absolute legend, he made sure everybody is having fun and feeling okay, he made us laugh and cry with his stories, legends and tales and his music choices were on point! He made this trip unforgettable, the guy deserves a raise!!! Thank you for an incredible trip, I will be back.

    Caitlin was an absolutely amazing tour guide. She is super knowledgeable, outgoing and eager to make sure everyone had a great time. Above everything else Caitlin was so obviously passionate about Scotland that it was infectious. Everyone one the tour was so captivated by her stories that it was impossible to not be excited about each of the things we saw and experienced.

    I'm Scottish (and living in Scotland) - I went on this trip because it offered the opportunity to see my very, very beautiful country at a leisurely pace without the need to work out the logistics of getting to each gorgeous location. I recommend this trip to everyone - and Kirsty was engaging throughout. I particularly loved the opportunity to walk about the likes of the Old Man of Storr, (I'm a keen walker - I would have loved the chance of more time in the Glencoe area which is frankly breathtakingly beautiful). My only gripe is the delivery of the Scottish history, it felt a little like retelling by Disney, and not to be taken seriously, but this is I realise is subjective. Unforgivable, however, is the little explanation given around the "sculptor", Andy Scott... He's a former GSA graduate and pretty successful. The kelpies were described as being "built as roadside art"... I think a little more was involved in their "creation" (sorry Kirsty lass, but as a former GSA graduate myself I couldnae let the description slide).

    I had an amazing time on the 5 day Hebridean Hopper with Haggis adventures! Kirsty was absolutely amazing! She did an excellent job getting everyone in the group introduced and had awesome stories and so much information about everywhere we went. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see some of the most amazing sights Scotland has to offer with a fun and adventurous group.

    This 5 day tour was an absolute blast! I learned so much and got to see so many beautiful spots around the Scottish Highlands that I will never forget. Kirsty was superb, informative, friendly, and above all KICK ASS AMAZING!! Her knowledge and story telling made this tour more engaging and exciting to be apart of. She is passionate about her job and above all her Homeland of Scotland. It really shows when she is talking to everyone as a group or even one on one. I won't forget the little random stories and "tid bits" of info she passed on during our bus tour. This is a trip I'll never forget and I will appreciate that I have a special place in my heart for Scotland. Thank you Kirsty!!

    I was really amazed of the quality of the tour. Our guide told us a lot about Scottish culture, so the tour was very touching a lot of aspects. The scenery was absolutely exceptional and made me want to come back to Scotland ! Thank you Kirsty for your good work and passion.
