We were traveling in a small but comfortable bus, the hostel is quite good for two-night stay, the living room is just an example of coziness :) Our guide, Marc, shared tons of interesting stories, legends and fun facts with us, as well as all sorts of Scottish music, and he definitely made this trip a lifeti..."

    When I booked the 3-dau Isle of Skye tour, I was expecting some pretty views, I got a lot more. Neil was a fantastic tour guide who was both informative and funny in equal measure. Easily approachable if you had a question as well which was lovely. The bus we rode on was also comfortable and a great way to see the highlands. The accommodation was also fantastic, beds were comfortable and the breakfast options were great, the local pubs and restaurants available for dinner were also great. The Highlands themselves were more beautiful than I had anticipated. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in exploring the highlands.

    THIS TOUR IS FOR BACKPACKERS. It was a small, amazing group of not too young, like-minded backpackers. We had a ton of fun in the Isle of Skye. Our tour guy was Dave and he was (sometimes painfully) funny and very helpful. He adapted our tour to include the things we wanted to do, including a 2-hour hike (which was rewarded by a bottle of whiskey for the group to share!) I really enjoyed this tour because it was very much geared towards our group. Would recommend to any backpackers on a budget because there were no "tourist traps" to get you to just spend more money. Accommodation was okay, nothing beyond hostel expectations. Scotland is a beauty and we embraced a little bit of liquid sunshine but Dave knew the best spots to take us. Great tour!

    During my 16 day tour of Europe, my time in the Isle of Skye with Macbackpackers was definitely my favorite part. Dave was a great tour guide--very fun, informative and funny. As a solo traveler, I would definitely recommend giving this tour a go!

    The tour was absolutely incredible. Apart from a bit of rain and wind, the Isle was breathtaking in every way and Dave made it a truly unforgettable experience. I will be sure to tell everyone I know about this so that they can have a similar experience as me.

    This three day Isle of Skye tour exceeded all my expectations! Our tour guide Dave made sure we had as much off-the-bus-time as possible. His great story telling talent, amazing playlist and many many jokes made the time on the bus just fly by. The scenery in the Highlands was breathtaking and the other people on the tour were all extremely nice and open which is perfect for when you're traveling solo! I had an amazing time, a big thank you to Dave and everyone on the tour!

    Highly recommend! Great tour had a lot of flexibility on where we went. Covered plenty of sights and landmarks. Richard the tour guide helped give it all a much more personal experience of Scotland, not something you'd get on a larger tour. Could not recommend Mac backpackers enough 10/10

    The three day Isle of Skye tour was honestly one of the highlights of my trip around Europe. Truthfully, much of this great experience was due to Dave, our tour guide. He was absolutely hilarious, had an extreme in-depth knowledge of the locational history, and made the entire trip fun, social, loose, and just an all around great time. Also, the music playlist was spot on. Awesome music that often times fit directly with the stories being told. So many tours are way too stereotypically “touristy” for me, but this one was different for all the right reasons. The small group size, the fun/joking environment, staying with the group at a hostel, and just being able to actually get out and about and experience things outdoors was worlds better than the traditional, stuffy “hop-on-hop-off” style tours. I wouldn’t hesitate for a single second to recommend this tour to my friends and, more specifically, I would tell them that if Dave was their guide, that they would be in for an incredible, informative, and hilarious adventure. You’re the man, Dave. Thanks for making the trip such a memorable experience.

    I went on the 3 day Isle of the Skye tour from the 22nd to the 24th of September and it exceeded my expectations. I typically enjoy going and exploring new countries on my own and at my own pace, but we were let ample time to go see and do what we wanted. Our tour guide Richard was very knowledgeable about Scotland and its history. What I enjoyed the most was that he gave us options on things to do, and all the things he recommended were fantastic. We lucked out with the weather but make sure if you do this bring some waterproof walking shoes! Thanks for a great trip.
