    We (my daughter and I) enjoyed the 5-day Christmas Caper thoroughly. Richard was an excellent tour guide, he was very knowledgeable on Scotish history and the geography of Scotland. MacBackpackers and Richard made Christmas memorable with gifts, champagne, and dinner. We met many great people on the tour and would highly recommend it.

    I had an amazing time on the tour to the highlands! Richard was a great guide and I had a great time meeting and socializing with other people in my group. It was a wonderful way to spend Christmas.

    The Christmas Caper tour was great. MacBackpackers is a bit more low key than other tour companies but it was a perfect fit for a shorter tour in a small, beautiful country. The guide, Richard, was amazing and everyone kept begging him for for stories. It was a great, affordable and festive way to spend Christmas. Our whole tour had a blast and it's a good trip for those who want to get out and explore a bit rather than just experience tourist spots.

    I met a lot of the Macbackpackers crew at a TNT travel show and they convinced me to book the tour. I didn't even know what the itenery was nor bothered to look it up. I just knew that this trip was going to be an epic adventure from how they described and I wasn't disappointed! My tour guide was Richard, he was amazing and full of so many stories and jokes that he had us in stitches or crying (well, feeling sad) most of the trip. I would recommend either this tour, or any Macbackpackers tour!

    The 5 Day Tour was amazing! The people on the coach were great and we had lots of fun! Thanks to Graeme we learned a lot of stories about the history, myths and "were" fun facts of Scotland from an insider who really knows how to tell stories. The accommodation was good as well although you sometimes had to arrange yourself with the space in the rooms. The itinery was great and due to the small coach size we could visit places that you could not reach with a bigger sized bus. Also it was great that we could make suggestions where to go and the itinery could be adjusted to the group's interests. I can only recommend this tour for everyone who would like to spend not so much time on the coach and who wants to have an active time including hiking, swimming and lots of fun, new experiences and new friends around the world :-) thanks macbackpackers and graham! - Jana from Germany

    Before even getting off the bus at the end of this years 5 day Christmas Caper I had already started to research the tours MacBackpackers are offering throughout this coming summer - this surely has to be the best way of proving just how much I enjoyed this trip! Scotland is so deserving, and our guide Richards enthusiasm for its beauty and history was contagious!! By the end of the trip we had all discovered our inner Scots! Everyone should visit Scotland at least once, and MacBackpackers surely has to be the best way of doing so.
