Alison "This tour, but especially our guide Caitlin, was amazing. I brought my 7 and 10 year old kids and I very worried they would be bored. But Caitlin was so engaging with her stories, music, props and just her general demeanor, the kids and everyone else had a fantastic time. Caitlin has such genuine passion and love for Scotland and now we do too! This was truly a trip we always remember. Cannot wait..."

    Simply Outstanding. Notwithstanding, the sentimental reason for our trip Scot Wilson became an instant kindred spirit. He read our circumstances and our love for family and our Scottish ancestors with the accuracy of a patriot. We loved him and he loved us back with Scottish pride and encyclopaedic details of his beloved country. We couldn’t have been more pleased. God bless Scot and our ancestral Scotland. Sandy and Bryan Shields May 14 the Highland Fling.

    This was one of the most wonderful experiences we have ever had, and it was all thanks to Scot. He was so knowledgeable, kind, entertaining and talented ( legit - this guy can sing, dance, even played the accordion for us!!! ). We went on another tour in another country after this one, and just kept musing to ourselves about how we missed Scot. He had a beautiful story for everything we passed. A beautiful song for every moment. It was truly an experience we will never forget. Love: Shabi and Christian ( the only non Scots!)

    What we would liked most was Caitlin! She was delightful, informative, passionate, kind, funny, and very well prepared. We especially appreciated how she included our two granddaughters in her presentations and reenactments. She helped make the tour more enjoyable for them and they loved her. Thank you, Caitlin!

    This was hands down the best tour I have ever been on! Caitlin was our main guide, but we were also lucky enough to have Jemma and Michael with us, too. From the first few minutes Caitlin was welcoming, funny, and warm, and she made everyone feel comfortable the whole time. Not only that, but she was also extremely funny and engaging with her commentary and overall fabulous personality. She felt less like a tour guide and more like an old friend. As a former tour guide myself who's worked in hospitality, I can confidently say she shattered my expectations for this tour and set the bar higher than I could have ever imagined for any future tours I go on. Jemma and Michael were also amazing! Jemma's hilarious stories were so entertaining and her energetic attitude was infectious. Michael's friendliness and knowledge of all things whisky and haggis was just what we needed as newbies to the country, and I know he'll be an awesome guide on all his future tours. I have honestly thought about this trip and the Scottish Highlands every day since leaving, and it's definitely not something that's going to stop anytime soon. Thank you again Caitlin, Jemma, and Michael for an unforgettable tour that I'd love to take again someday!

    Hi Karen, Thank you for taking your time out to leave such a great review for Caitlin, Jemma and Michael's Highland Fling tour! It's great that they all shared their vast knowledge about all thing haggis, whisky and history. We look forward to welcoming you on tour in the future, Annabelle

    Caitlin's passion for Scotland's history was so evident in her excellent storytelling. She was funny, compassionate, and so much fun. I've recommended this tour to countless people already and the tour was an obvious highlight of my month of travel. Also a shout-out to Caitlin's co-guides and trainees Jemma and Michael. Jemma's jokes and stories were a fantastic addition to the tour and though this was Michael's first ever tour, his stories and whisky knowledge added another dimension to an already well-rounded, informative, and super fun tour.

    Hello Caitlin, Thank you for such a positive review! I am so pleased to hear that this was the highlight of your travels, and that Caitlin, Jemma and Michael truly entertained you! I hope that you can return to Scotland soon! Best, Jenay

    Calum was great with stories and answering questions, however I found him quite unapproachable and blunt. He wouldn’t interact with us outside of the bus and one night with alcohol he came across quite rude to some of my fellow tour guests. Peter on the other hand, was incredible! For his first 5 day tour he interested with us, he made us feel really welcome and was happy to try and answer any questions we had. I feel like the hostel on the isle of Skye saucy Marrys was probably the bottom grading hostel out of the three we stayed at but over all it was a good trip. The itinerary was a bit confusing though, each day we weren’t told where we were going or what we were doing so it was hard for us to figure out what shoes to wear or clothes. We always had time for lunch but it was always between 11-2:30 which is quite a broad time to be guessing when we were going to have lunch as we were never told. But great experience, bit expensive for what we paid but would recommend! Thanks guys!

    Caitlin and her copilot Jim gave us a great experience of the Highlands and Skye, filled with fun, music and spectacular weather! She’s incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about all things Scottish and shares that knowledge with humour and warmth. A great trip all round.

We also had the delightful presence of Jim, a trainee. He was also knowledgeable and added colorful personal anecdotes. We especially enjoyed his stories about climbing - made me wish we had time for that! He is also going to make a terrific guide!
