    My 3-day tour with Richard was the highlight of my trip to Scotland. Anyone considering renting a car and doing it themselves should seriously consider otherwise. This tour was cheap, fascinating, and extremely entertaining. I would do it again next weekend if I could. Richard was very accommodating and sincerely cared that we got the most out of our trip. I really wanted to visit a castle my ancestors lived in. It wasn't on the itinerary and was out of the way, and I didn't think we would go. He suggested that we go before I had even asked if it was a possibility.

    Awesome tour, covers lots of Scotland's highlights in a small time frame. Our guide Richard was an awesome bloke with a vast array of stories, facts and information. Also a great sense of humour. They let you change up the tour a bit and decide which places you want to spent more or less time in, which is great, depending on the type of people on the tour and the weather. Accomodation and transport in also comfy and clean.

    This tour was incredible. Great vehicle and accommodations! There's no way I'd have found all of things we saw and experienced without our guide, Dave. He took us to the most beautiful locations, shared a bit of Scottish lore and history, and made a great playlist for trip. 5/5 for sure! Thank you!!

    The 3 day Loch Ness and Skye tour was absolutely bliss. Our driver cum guide, Dave, was a great guy. He probably deserves some kind of award for his work. The hostels we stayed in were really nice too, specially the hostel on the shores of Loch Ness. I would highly recommend this tour company.

    Such an amazing tour! Loved that they had a smaller bus which allowed us to have a more personal experience. The driver Dave really made the trip. He was very professional and told the best stories. I recommend this tour to everyone, especially a younger or more active crowd

    This was a wonderful tour! The whole tour was well thought out, and our tour guide - Richard - was extremely knowledgable about the best spots, the stories of the land and what to do to make the most of our time in Scotland. You could tell he had a true passion for his job and Scotland. The views are obviously incredible, and this tour felt like we were being let into secrets that tourists don't know about. It was a local tour, which meant that we got to see the best spots and marvel in the real beauty of Skye. The hostels were great, welcoming, incredible locations and very clean with good facilities. I really appreciated that we could change up the itinerary based on what we wanted to do. It made it feel personal and like a private tour. All in all it was a Fantastic tour. Would recommend to anyone considering going to Skye.

    We had a fantastic 3 day tour of Lochness and Isle of Skye (despite the lovely Scottish weather). It was such a flexible tour. Our tour guide Dave really took into consideration what the group wanted to see and would adjust the itinerary accordingly. He told us the lengthy history of Scotland while making the stories interesting and relatable. I've been on many organised tours in my life and nothing has been so relaxed and flexible. 5/5 stars I will definitely be recommending this tour to my friends.
