    Everything was great. Our two guides, Rich and Duncan, were amazing. The first day the ferry to go to Isle of Lewis was not available but they managed to arrange the tour so we didn't miss out anything. I'm very happy to have chosen a tour to visit Scotland, and even happier to have chosen Haggis Adventures.

    I had two guides. Midway I lost Rich and gained Duncan. Both were fabulous for the following reasons 1) excellent drivers and always concerned about our safety as in (watch traffic crossing the road here, path likely to be slippery, take your time) 2) incredibly knowledgeable about the locations and the history. Always sharing new facts and information. Unbelievable base of knowledge - really impressive.. And I loved that they obviously love and are proud of Scotland. 3) kind, witty, fun, and courteous, a great combination. Both were super well rounded fellows. 4) real givers - never holding anything back. If they knew good places to eat, we were told, pubs? we were told. Places to avoid, we were told. They were really present for our group in spirit, word, and deed. Honestly we couldn't ask for better leaders and guides. I hope you give them both a good bonus. They deserve it. They work very hard.

    Rich was awesome, we couldn't have asked for a better tour guide or driver! There is no aspect where he could have improved. Rich you rock!!! We had Steve on the first 3 days, very nice guy but definitely not as good of a tour guide nor driver, not bad but need improvement. Let me explain, Besides Steve's accent he doesn't communicate as well and doesn't repeat instructions clearly. Many times nobody in the bus knew exactly what he had told us (we all had different versions) or when we were supposed to come back to the bus. The fact that the rear speakers didn't seem to work (I pointed this out to him) didn't help, we moved forward in the bus on day 2. Generally speaking it would be nice to have a daily itinary with aproximate stop times so we can plan our day (and belly). Steve posted a map of the tour with stops listed only on day 3 :(

    Favourite parts were the Outer Hebrides, hairy coos, Ceilidh, and all the stories. Steve was also super nice and flexible + accommodating, such as with making sure the two of us that were vegan were well fed :)
