Antonio "The trip, the scenery, the tour guide, the experience to flavor and understand the Scottish culture outside Edinburgh, is unbelievable! I would suggest the trip to anybody. The hotel was also great. My only disappointment was out of anybody's control, and weather related: wind did not allow us to take the ferry from Skye to Mallaig, and did not let us see a castle we wanted to see.

    Gill was the best guide we could've imagined getting. Not only was she knowledgeable but she was funny and personable and really made the tour interesting and fun. I was in awe of her driving skills on narrow winding roads, specially since she was treating us to the most amazing sights and really cool information!! I love learning about all the areas I visit and Gill was perfect. There were enough stops so you didn't get too tired of the bus and I loved the fact that she gave us all the information we needed but let us explore on our own! This tour made me want to move to Scotland and start hiking all the Munros!!

    Caitlyn is such a sweet gal. We loved Portree, dancing, all the stories & music. The battlefield history was very moving from her point of view.

    I absolutely loved this tour!! Caitlin my tour guide was AMAZING!!! I would give 10 stars if I could for her! She told us so much about where we were and where we were going. You can tell she LOVES Scotland so much and is very proud to live there. Also what an amazing driver!! I was repeatedly impressed by her driving skills and felt so so so safe at all times. She made the tour so fun! Just realized I haven't said much about the tour. It was fantastic and I will definitely be back to rebook. I saw so much and have a great appreciation of wonderfully beautiful Scotland

The hotel was also great. My only disappointment was out of anybody's control, and weather related: wind did not allow us to take the ferry from Skye to Mallaig, and did not let us see a castle we wanted to see. Also, the seats in the Jacobite train were not good to see the scenery (we were in the front sears of the front coach, and could not see much).

    Fantastic tour guide doing his last tour, took us on a short but epic journey around the Isle of Skye complete with stories and details of historical events of the same. The tour itself was filled with beautiful scenery and iconic landmarks. Highly recomended and best wishes to our guide Tony on his future endevours.

    This trip was a once in a lifetime experience! I highly recommend if you are coming to Scotland and want to check out the highlands! I say do the 5-7 night tours to really experience the highlander ways. Our guide, Richard, was one of the funniest/ knowledgeable guide I have met. He really takes pride in his job. 5 star tour company!

    Our 3 day trip with Highland Explorer was fantastic! Great guide Mahri, who looked after us, told us stories of Scotland and the history. She absolutely made the trip for us, making sure that we all left with a love of Scotland. Recommended!
