    Best tour I've ever been on! It was like a 3-day comedy tour with amazing scenery and everything I wanted to see in Scotland crammed into a very affordable budget. I have no complaints, and highly recommend it to active budget-savvy tourists with a dark sense of humor such as myself.

    Without a doubt the best tour I've ever been on. The itinerary was amazing; filled with all Isle of Skye's highlights. Despite doing the three day tour, there were even some nice hikes included. Best part of the experience was busdriver Dave. During the rides he regaled us with tales, filled with relevant, interesting and fun information. On top of that, he arranged musical intermezzos, with songs that were relevant to the stories, and yet catchy. Truly an incredible experience. Would recommend it to everyone!

    I hope this is the right Dave - his name is Dave the busdriver on facebook and he does the isle of skye tours. Dave was incredibly funny, professional, and entertaining. You should be very proud to have him on your time - by far the best tour guide I have EVER had.
