    Brilliant! Thanks a million to Richard and our travelling clan they were the best people to share the tour with. It was my first time in Scotland and it will not be my last: the scenery, the people, the history, the culture and storytelling is incredible and second to none x

    Tour was really fun, got to see a lot of different parts of the Highlands and other spots. Neil was an absolute gem of a tour guide. The tour wouldn't have been nearly as good without his wealth of stories and great sense of humour. Would highly advise doing the longer tour though, you'll get more time to explore and soak in the experience.

    We had a fantastic tour! The stops were great and I loved the hiking on Skye. Our group was nearly alone for the most part there, not touristy at all (for anyone concerned: there were choices how long/difficult a path you wanted to take, so everyone could have fun). The hostels were both very nice and so was Castle Rock Hostel in Edinburgh (not included in the tour, but a perfect place to stay a few days earlier/later). Dave was brilliant! No matter if he was talking about history, folklore, culture or current events or just made jokes, he made everything entertaining and memorable. And with a fitting soundtrack :D.
