Isabella "I did the 3 day Isle of Skye tour and it was amazing! Our guide Richard was absolutely incredible, he totally made the trip. As it was winter we had a small group which was actually great! We bonded very quickly and had an excellent few days roaming around the highlands, seeing incredible mountains, castles and seaside cliffs, jumping out to say hello to highland coos and and deer and listening to..."

    I just got back from the 3 day Isle of Skye tour and first of all a huge thank you to the best tour guide Neil! Such a great guy & his knowledge and stories made the whole tour better than imagined! He really went out of his way for us tourists making sure we would get the most out of the trip. I would highly recommend this tour & seeing this beautiful part of the world! We were lucky enough to get snow on our second night which made the view more magical the next day! Thanks again! :-)

    Neil was the best tour guide in eternity!! I will personally recommend Isle of Skype tour and him as the tour guide to all my friends who come to Scotland. In fact, I’ll tell them they have to go to Scotland solely for this purpose. His stories and knowledge were awe inspiring and we felt very safe in his hands. What a Gorgeous tour, I’m so sad it had to end! Thanks Neil you are hilarious.... like a ninja!

    I went on the 3 day Isle of Skye trip in the last week of June 2017. It was FABULOUS. I was a solo traveler and had a great time both with others on the trip and our guide. Our guide definitely knew how to plan our trip and was flexible enough to both give good recommendations but also allow us input on what we want to do. For example, we made an impromptu Whiskey Distillery tour on the last morning so that we could get to Glen Coe after the rain. I cannot recommend MacBackpackers enough over other tour companies. They are friendly, fun, affordable and do really know their beautiful country.

    Had the best time touring around the Isle of Skye with Richard at the helm. It was freezing (snowy and rainy--- bring waterproofs!!) but so very beautiful and I learned so much about the Scottish history from Richard. He tailored the trip to allow us to see what we wanted to see, but also gave us great recommendations. Highly recommend this trip!!!

We bonded very quickly and had an excellent few days roaming around the highlands, seeing incredible mountains, castles and seaside cliffs, jumping out to say hello to highland coos and and deer and listening to incredible stories of Scotland’s history and folklore. The way that Macbackpackers run their tours means they are flexible and means you as a traveller can help to form the itinerary. I had the best time and didn’t want it to end. I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone - in fact I have already recommended it to a few friends! I will definitely be booking another tour with them as soon as I can. :)

    I had a great time on the 3 day Isle of Skye tour! We had a nice small group and our guide Richard told us many stories ranging from historical, legends and geological knowledge. His stories really added extra value to my trip! The itinerary is really flexible and adapted to the wishes of the group.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • May 1, 2017

      Are meals included?

      The price of the tour doesn’t include food. However we make supermarket stops every day and each of the hostels has a well equipped kitchen for our guests to use. There will also be pubs and restaurants near each hostel if you feel like eating out in the evening.

    • May 1, 2017

      Is this tour suitable for a family travelling with a 13 years old?

      MacBackpackers tours have been designed for 18-40 year old backpackers and therefore the nature and style of the tours reflect this.

      We like our guests to socialise with like-minded young backpackers - on the bus, while hiking, in the hostel and in the pub. Our guests are mostly in their early twenties and book with us specifically because they want to hang out and party with other fun people their age. We are for young people travelling solo or with a like-minded friend and not for families I'm afraid.

      The language used on board our buses can be a bit offensive and the things we're talking about are for young adults and can be awkward for people outside the age bracket. Our activities are also designed for 18 - 40 year olds.

    • May 1, 2017

      Is accommodation included?

      Unless otherwise stated, eg. Christmas/Hogmanay packages, accommodation is not included in the price of the tour, but is guaranteed for you whilst on tour. You will therefore be asked to pay on arrival at the hostels.
