    4.5 - Excellent

    It was a wonderful trip. Our bus driver, Steve was excellent. Tom McGiver, our tour guide gave us a full background of the history of Scotland. We wound up in the tail end of Helene, so couldn't visit Iona because ferries weren't running but had a very nice experience shopping/sightseeing in ToberMorey. Really had a good time!

    4.0 - Good

    This was a very good and very thorough itinerary. The guide and driver were excellent, and the accommodations were largely decent. My main concern is with the coach itself. The seats are very tightly packed, and taller passengers might find comfort to be a challenge. I am very tall, and the guide and the group were gracious enough to let me have the one seat that I could sit straight ahead in. I get that this may be a necessary evil to keep the prices reasonable (and eliminating a few seats would necessarily increase the price per passenger),

    Was very pleased with the ease that I was able to understand, and navigate your website. Have actually been looking at several other tour companies, some have played phone tag with me. Others have not bothered to return calls. Their websites have been difficult, to work and understand. Am super excited to be working with you. Am now working on finding affordable airfare. Thanks again. Looking forward to a wonderful adventure. Have already been giving several friends your info.
