    I 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!

    This 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.

    We did the 2016/17 Hogmanay tour which included 3 day trip to Isle of Skye. The trip was amazing Skye is a must see! Macbacpackers made the whole trip enjoyable and well organised but the big thing that stood out was our amazing tour guide! Richard Galloway! His humour and knowledge made the trip! I would recommend macbackpackers to everyone!

    I just did the 6 Day Hogmanay Tour that led through the highlands & into Skye, and I'm so happy I did it. Our guide Richard was phenomenal and made the tour fun at any given point, there was never a dull moment. He knew so much about Scotland and it's history, and filled the empty space while driving with the local folklore. You hit all the highlights around the highlands, and learn so much about what has shaped Scotland and it's people over the past hundreds of years. We also hit some good weather, albeit as good as highland weather can get. This trip is exactly what I needed after living in London!

    I just finished the 6 night Hogmanay package for New Years including the 3 day tour around the Isle of skye. Richard was my tour guide and I couldn't thank him enough for making my first ever tour such a memorable experience! From the first 5 minutes of being on the bus he had us all laughing. He was very knowledgable about the history and geography of Scotland and the Isle of Skye. It was great listening to the many stories he had to share and the range of classic and modern Scottish music. Our bus group bonded really well which made for a truly amazing time. I can't wait to book my next tour in for longer this time a great teaser to the beautiful Isle of Skye. I will definitely recommend MacBackpackers to my friends and family. Richard you are an awesome tour guide and just a great person! Thanks for making this such a memorable experience!!!

    I did the 5 Day Skye & Highland Fling in June of 2014. My guide, Richard was awesome and Scotland was breathtaking but after coming off a rowdy, energetic, social tour of Ireland I was a bit let down with the other travelers on my tour. However, I decided to return with a friend for their Hogmanay tour and was I blown away. Richard was my guide again and after hearing what we visited during my first tour, he switched up the Skye tour to make sure I saw things that I hadn't the first time. Talk about good customer service!! It was an unforgettable time with fantastic people, places and stories. Highly Recommend. Thinking about doing it all over again for 2017...

The best part (beside Hogmanay itself): stopping to see and get pictures of Highland Cows!! Thank you for a great time! I'll be recommending to my friends and family when they plan their visits to beautiful Scotland!!
