    Our guide Richard was fantastic, down to earth and very knowledgeable. Definitely a historic tour with a twist. We could pick where we wanted to go and he made it happen.

    A tour is only as good as the guide you are blessed with. And Neil at MacBackpackers is a real gift. It take a lot of energy and dedication to be an expert about so many wonderful locations, with all the history that permeates glorious Scotland, and Neil proved to be a master. This was my fourth trip to Scotland, and this tour especially surpassed all my other visits. Bravo Neil. And thank you.

    Heart is still full from such an incredible time on the 5 day Highland Tour! Loved the freedom of the itinerary and the awesome insight from our kick-ass guide, Mark; he was hilarious, had some great music playing and made everyone feel very comfortable- so much so that we were all referring to each other by nicknames and felt like a little family. Highlight was definitely climbing The Old Man of Storr despite hurricane-like wind and rain, lol, and having a group dinner on our last night. Was so sad to leave but our little squad is already talking of coming back for a reunion. Thank you so much for such an unforgettable experience :) Love always, 'Canada' xo

    Mark was an amazing guide. His sense of humour brought our entire group closer together from the first day. He was an awesome storyteller, and was passionate about the history of each place we visited. He gave us enough time at each location, and we never felt rushed. He had awesome recommendations for each place we visited. The bus was spacious and very comfortable, and the hostels were a great value. Highly recommend the 5-day fling tour! Thanks Mark!

    I had the best experience in Scotland, our guide Neil was super fun and made learning about their history really interesting and unique. I had never been on a tour before because I was worried I would spend the entire time on the bus but this was so amazing because we got to go out and see so much everyday, I would recommend it to everyone!

It didn’t matter the weather we got lots of time off the bus hiking to beautiful lookouts and walking through historical sites. Obviously five days was not enough and I will definitely being coming back, but it was none the less and amazing start. I highly recommend any of these tours for anyone who actually wants to feel and experience the highlands, not just stare at it out of your window!
