She was fun, informative, patient and professional. She engaged us with stories, songs and great attention to seeing that we had all we needed. Collet went above and beyond the call of duty to help 3 of us who needed attention due to mobility issues. She was compa..."

    The hotels were beyond ridiculous - and NOT in a good way. If you want remote areas and terrible conditions book this tour. There are many, much better ways to see the beauty of Scotland. If I was backpacking I wouldn’t stay where they’ve put us. Our tour... Read more

    very long days - early starts, and often did not get to our destination till 6.00pm, with instructions to be ready for dinner at 6.45pm. We sometimes felt our guide was filling in time, as he didn't want to get to our destination too early, mWe'd have been... Read more
