    Written on May 24, 2018
    5.0 - Excellent

    The MacBackpackers 3 day tour of Loch Ness and Skye actually includes many other stops and is probably best described as an abridged tour of the north of Scotland. The schedule is somewhat tight but enough time is provided not to feel too rushed at each stop. It definitely felt as if we got to experience a wide variety of different sites. As for our guide, Dave definitely suited my sense of humour although if you are easily offended, this may not be the tour for you. For people who can take a laugh however, Dave's somewhat colourful descriptions of events in Scottish history are very entertaining. If you are open to experiencing a more informal style of guiding, I would definitely recommend taking a tour with Dave even if you are more used to a prim and proper environment. If you have any ANZAC friends, then you will understand what I mean.

    Dave is an amazing tour guide. He seems to know where to go for beautiful views and perfect walks. He knows many stories about the area and hand picked a music playlist which suits the trip incredibly well. Dave balanced his stories well between folklore, facts, theories and personal experience. If you like an inclusive, personal trip, don't mind an occasional swear word and like to meet new people, MacBackpackers is definitely the tour for you!

    If you are thinking of going to Scotland I can't recommend MacBackpackers enough. The 3 Day Loch Ness & Isle of Skye tour was incredible & our guide Dave was great. A passionate Scotsman that made the whole trip awesome.

The accommodations were perfect, plenty of time for eating & sightseeing and a good mix of activities from hiking to graveyard wandering. I would recommend macbackpackers 100%. Thrilled & lucky that my hostel suggested it.
