    I did a 3 day Isle of Skye and Lochness tour with MacBackpackers. It was absolute fun, full of stories, meeting fun new people, and exploring places. What I liked the most about the tour is that it is flexible, the guide would ask the group's suggestion for the day and give you the option and the hostels have amazing locations and fun features. Totally recommend staying in Castle Rock as it is just more convenient to board on and off from there. Also, 3 days is good but 5 days could be just amazing. Jusss sayin

    Dave was absolutely fantastic! The beauty of the Scotland was perfectly complemented by his in depth knowledge of relevant history and modern Scottish culture. Our tour consisted of brilliant scenery, expert local knowledge and enough relevant songs to fill several playlists. I would fully recommend Dave & MacBackpackers to anyone who wants to see the best of Scotland.

    Had a great tour of the Highlands with Macbackpackers. I love the Highlands and have travelled here before, but I enjoyed my time revisiting some of my favourite places and the tour guide, Dave, even showed me some places I had never heard of before. Dave was a great guide: funny, genuine and had lots of stories and information to tell. When the weather took a turn for the worst on the second day, he knew just where to go to take advantage of the wind and rain. Great tour, awesome guide and the Highlands. I couldn't ask for more

    Dave was a great tour guide who was extremely knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions. When conditions changed that were beyond his control he was extremely quick to make a new plan that was just as good if not better. He has a brilliant sense of humour and is great to chat with when you’re off the bus. The tour overall is well thought out and you’re never on the bus for too long between sites. I’d highly recommend the trip and if you get Dave as a driver you’ll have a grouse time.

    Dave was an excellent tour guide. He drove well all whilst telling us loads of information and stories relating to Scottish history. He also played great Scottish bangers!! Regardless of some minor setbacks (weather, time) we still got to see plenty of destinations and a variety of amazing Scottish landmarks!! I’d definitely recommend this tour to anyone.

    Davo was a mad c***, knowledgable Lad who provided all the information in the best possible way. Made the trip very enjoyable despite some "set backs" that were out of his control. absolute legend!

    I joined the tour to the Isle of Skye quite spontaneously. I saw the the flyer in the hostel and decided to join the adventure :) It was really breathtaking. I am grateful that I made that decision to join. I don't think I have seen anything like it in my entire life. The landscape Dave showed us was just mind blowing and beautiful! Dave was an excellent tour guide. He enriched the experience for me. He told plenty of fun stories and facts I would have never heard if I he hadn't shared them with us. In addition to that he told us about his personal views on life and his life so far. And the group I was travelling with was really inspiring as well. :) Plenty of different nationalities and very interesting, lovely people. I will always remember that trip and never forget it :) !! The trip has really had an impact on my life :) Thank you very much :) !!

    Stewart was a great guide. Our bus group was a little quiet...but he kept the stories and tunes coming. He also handled a traffic situation that forced us to reroute with grace. We enjoyed seeing all the different parts of Scotland and hope to return and see more!

    This tour was absolutely amazing! Stewart is a great tour guide - very funny guy! I loved his stories (and the swearing...and his rants about the English or the f***ing bad drivers ;-) ) The tour is a great way to explore a bit of Scotland if you only have a limited amount of time. I really liked the variety of things we could do, like visiting castles/cathedrals etc, whisky tasting and hiking. I especially enjoyed the hiking bits!!! Thanks so much and I'll definitely book some more tours with you guys!!! Oh, by the way, Stewart, thanks for the tipp about the bottle of whisky at Dalwhinnie. I'll definitely remember you in 10 years time ;-) All the best, Ina

Stewart was an absolutely outstanding tour guide and willingly adjusted the itenary to whatever the majority of the group was most interested in experiencing. Since it's impossible to cram everything completely in, Stewart helped us prioritize the essentials. He is very passionate/knowledgeable about Scottish history and eagerly answered all our questions. I also enjoyed listening to the eclectic Scottish music during our ride. The accommodations were two of the best all around hostels in the world and the views were unparralleld. We wanted to see as much as we possibly could view in the Highlands during our sadly short stay in Scotland, and this tour undoubtedly managed it. Thanks so much, Stewart and MacBackpackers!
