    Caitlin was fantastic and a true pleasure to guide us through the week. She’s a fun loving free spirit who has a gift for sharing the rich history of Scotland. She was also very punctual with each drop off and pick up (almost exactly to the minute) so that we got to see as much as possible throughout the week. Her stories were entertaining, her recommendations for food and entertainment were spot on, and her joyful spirit was infectious for the rest of the group. Thanks Caitlin for a memorable week!

    Caitlin was the perfect tour guide! I was really worried that the tour would be a bit boring, but with her good story telling skills, her music and her good vibes, the tour was perfect! I recommend it to any curious tourist, it showed us a great oversight of the highlands (I only did the one day tour), and made me want to go again! Thanks again for everything

    My 15 year old daughter and I had a fabulous trip with Highlander Explorer Tours, would recommend this 5 day tour. Our guide Steve was really knowledgable and friendly and made the trip into the highlands fun. We had the best time.

    Questions & Answers

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

      • September 1, 2016

        Is the accommodation included on this trip?

        Included in this trip is accommodation in 3* B&B (there is also an option to upgrade to an Highland Hotel Accom. for additional cost).

      • August 3, 2016

        What will the weather be like?

        Predictably unpredictable. The Highlands wouldn’t be so green, and the lochs so beautiful, if it didn’t rain from time to time. Scotland has a worse reputation than it deserves in terms of weather but come prepared for a bit of everything. Wet weather gear, sunblock, t-shirts and jumpers are all recommended.

      • August 3, 2016

        Are there any luggage restrictions?

        We recommend one reasonable sized suitcase or piece of baggage and one small carry on bag per person, up to a maximum weight of 15kg. We are unfortunately not able to store any extra luggage at our Office. Waverley Train Station has luggage storage and it is also worth speaking to your accommodation provider as they may have secure storage facilities too.

        You may find it useful to bring a small bag in which to keep your purse, a bottle of water and anything you might need during the day. You can bring this bag onboard the bus with you and store it in the overhead luggage rack.

        Booking was really easy! The options were displayed clearly and I was able to filter. I especially liked that they recommended a travel insurer because I've never had to get travel insurance. No hassle experience and now I'm ready for my tour!
