    Steve P was an amazing tour guide and organised activities for us to do that weren’t on the itinerary. It was great fun having someone with so much knowledge share stories and show us around for 5 days

    The tour was great and our guide Duncan was excellent. The accommodations were a bit tight at times but it was cozy. The uncontrollable weather highlighted why everything is so green.

    Book it already! 5 days exploring a great portion of Scotland. Tons of highland coos and if it rains you get tons of waterfalls coming down the highland hills.

    The Highlands are breathtaking to tour through. Most of the itinerary you think you’re going to see, you actually do. Some of the places were not open. I would recommend the Jacobite train ride and the Lock Ness boat ride. Both are well worth the extra... Read more

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • Are meals included in the tour price?

      Your tour will stop at some excellent and varied restaurants en route with traditional and contemporary options to suit every palate. For maximum flexibility, your Tour Guide will be on hand to give you the locals’ tips on the best hidden gems and then the choice is yours to decide where, what and with whom to eat.

    • Can I be picked up or dropped off somewhere other than the Highland Explorer Office?

      To make the most of your tour, Highland Explorer only picks you up and returns you to the Highland Explorer Office to prevent wasting time on Day 1 of your tour. Most city centre accommodation is only a short walk/taxi ride from the office and has good public transport links so there should be no trouble getting there!

    • Are there any luggage restrictions?

      Highland Explorer allows each passenger to have one main piece of baggage with the total weight being no more than 44lbs/20kgs. You will find that the majority of tours have a 20kg luggage limit per person, as this provides luggage room on the transport for all travellers in the group. In addition, you can bring one daypack onboard the transport but you must be able to carry this around with you.
