Karen "I loved this trip! I did the Highlands trip over xmas and they really put on a show! It was a busy 5 days exploring the highlands but not rushed - the perfect amount of activities, driving, eating, drinking, dancing, relaxing. I saw a lot and the days were spaced out well as in you were never really on the bus for long stretches. Every single stop was great! It was nice to stay in a few different ..."

    The Haggis Mega Highland Tour was fantastic. I have never been on a bus tour when the traveling between stops seemed so short. There were always interesting little stops to make and interesting facts and banter and songs to keep our spirits high. Calum and Rich were the perfect tour guides on our bus and there were extra Haggis Helpers at every night stop to make sure our accommodation was all sorted on our arrival. I'm not an extrovert and usually dread forced social interaction but the tour was so perfectly arranged that everyone had the option of sticking together or doing their own thing every night. I was so busy having fun with pub quizzes and Ceilidhs and beach parties that my family got cross I wasn't sad about not being home for Christmas. Would highly recommend this tour to any Christmas Orphans wanting to do something with a limited amount of time and money.

    Hi Julie, Thank you for the great review. I am delighted to hear that your Christmas was so memorable and that you had so much fun that you didn't even miss being away from your family! I'm glad that Rich and Calum, as well as the other Haggis staff, were welcoming and organised plenty of activities to keep you entertained. Best Wishes, Brenna

    A festive fling away with like minded travellers! Tour leaders were friendly and enthusiastic; very upbeat and helpful. Accommodation was good and tour went well. A casual and friendly way of seeing Scotland.

    The tour was great and I really enjoyed it. Personally, however, I prefer to spent more time at one place to walk around in the field/lake a bit more, rather than go from one to the other with only 10-40 minutes at each place.

    Hi Esther, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I am pleased that you had an enjoyable time on tour and I hope that it was a very memorable Christmas for you. I am sorry to hear that you felt there was not enough time at some stops. There are so many beautiful places that the guides love to stop at so passengers can experience as much of the stunning Scottish scenery as possible. Best Wishes, Brenna

    This tour actually rocked!! Christmas with Haggis is something that I will never forget. Yvonne was a ‘pocket rocket’! She was an amazing guide and had us well cared for the whole trip. In fact all the Haggis crew had us well looked after. I loved how everyone travelling was just ready to have a good time. I would highly recommend this tour company!!

    The Xmas 2017 your was actually incredible. The best run tour I've ever been on and our guide, Yvonne, was amazing! The accommodation was great and the included food was of a high standard. And as an added bonus, we got a great snowfall and had a big snowball fight with all the passengers, tour leaders, and hostel staff! Would highly recommend this tour!

    Hi Nerilee, Thank you for the 5 star rating. I am so happy to hear that you had such an amazing time on the Christmas tour and that it exceeded your expectations. How fortunate to experience the Highlands in the snow and the snowball fight sounds like it was lots of fun. Best Wishes, Brenna

    The trip was fantastic! It's awesome that this runs through Christmas, as everyone on board was away from home. Touring Scotland was the best thing you could do if you can't go home to see your family. We all had a lot of fun and an excellent Christmas day, which featured one of the most stunning scenic places I've ever been to (and I'm from NZ, so that's saying something). Highly recommended. Thanks Rich, Callum, Catlin, Yvonne et al

I saw a lot and the days were spaced out well as in you were never really on the bus for long stretches. Every single stop was great! It was nice to stay in a few different locations too. One of the accommodation options is a hostel in shared rooms but it was a lovely little hostel. The hotel where we spent Christmas was amazing and exceeded my expectations. It was my birthday too over the tour and everyone made it super special. It was just the perfect balance between being a party tour combined with sightseeing. I enjoy having more than a few drinks and having a laugh (especially on my birthday!) but the days were still so interesting and enjoyable and so glad I could have so much fun both day and night. The last night trivia is the perfect end to the tour, best trivia I have ever experienced!
