- jennyWritten on January 13, 20185.0 - ExcellentSo glad to have been on this trip to finish off 2017 with a bang and enter 2018 with a bunch of legends! The tour from start to finish was filled with laughter, fun, new experiences, new memories made and breathtaking views of the Highlands covered in snow! Our guide, Richard, definitely made the trip! He is so full of knowledge and shared a bunch of stories, jokes and was always ready for a laugh! It was sufficient! MacBackpackers were really helpful prior to the trip and also during. Highly recommend going on this tour!Show detailed ratingsMacBackpackers commented on this reviewHi Jenny, Thanks so much for writing the review. We are delighted to hear you had a blast on the tour with Richard and a brilliant Hogmanay. We look forward to seeing you soon again! Cheers, Jaz xx
- BBryanWritten on January 8, 20185.0 - ExcellentFrom start to finish, this is one of the best tours I've ever done. I've stayed in a bunch of hostels over the years but Castle Rock Hostel is something special; a huge place with excellent facilities and views of castles from the windows. As for the tour itself, there really is no better way to round off your year. The Isle of Skye and the Scottish Highlands during winter are sublime. You HAVE to see it when it's blanketed by snow! You'll also have a load of fun on the bus with our tour guide, Richard being the most entertaining and knowledgeable guide I've ever experienced. His rich knowledge of the country's history and authentic Scottish humour will leave you with a deep understanding and love of Scotland by the time you leave. Your only problem then is the melancholy you'll feel for wanting to be back there! Overall a fantastic experience which I couldn't rate any higher.Show detailed ratingsMacBackpackers commented on this reviewHi Bryan, Thanks so much for taking the time to review us. We are delighted to hear you had great Hogmanay and amazing time exploring the Highlands and Isle of Skye with Richard. We hope to see you again soon! Best wishes, Jaz xx
- DDanielWritten on January 3, 20185.0 - ExcellentMacBackPacker's Hogmanay Hootenany was the ultimate travel experience! It was a perfect blend of exciting festival celebrations in Edinburgh, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and jaw-dropping natural and historical site exploration. What really made it stand out, however, was the enthusiasm, personality and incredible knowledge of our guide, Richard. Amazing!Show detailed ratingsMacBackpackers commented on this reviewHey Daniel, We're delighted to hear you enjoyed the Hogmanay in Edinburgh and the 3 Day Isle of Skye tour with Richard. Thanks for rating us. We hope to see you soon again! Best wishes, Jaz xx
- SSSeanWritten on January 3, 20185.0 - ExcellentTouring through Scotland and the Isle of Skye with MacBackpackers and Richard Galloway as our guide was an awesome experience. Richard kept the adventure fun, hilarious, and continuously entertaining with his banter, stories, and knowledge.

- SBSvenWritten on January 8, 20175.0 - ExcellentI loved every minute of this tour, and I mean every single one. With our tourguide Richard Galloway (proper top bloke!) not only telling us about any- and everything you may want to know about the places we visited and travelled through, but also making sure we all had one hell of a laugh, even bus rides were fun. Also, when I had a question during the booking process, assistance was immediate, helpful and friendly. The hostels we stayed in were some of the best I have been to. Castel Rock Hostel is situated absolutly brilliantly, and the staff were great. The places we went to see were (of course) breathtaking, Skye and the Highlands are a must see, pictures simply can't convey them well enough to do them justice! I also liked that there was enough spare time in the evenings to get to know everyone, the others on the tour were great, that really lifted the experience right up there!Show detailed ratingsMacBackpackers commented on this reviewHi Sven! Thank you for your review, we're so pleased to hear you loved your time with us! Hope you have an awesome 2017.
- BBenWritten on January 3, 20175.0 - ExcellentThis was the first ever tour I've done, and I couldn't reccommend it enough. Macbackpackers as a company were incredibly helpful throughout the booking process, and our tour guide Richard was absolutely brilliant. He was super interactive, and also was open to suggestions if anyone had anywhere they really wanted to check out on the trip. The accommodation provided for the duration of the trip was in great locations, and with good facilities too.Show detailed ratingsMacBackpackers commented on this reviewHello Ben!
