    Hi! I am so glad that I booked a tour with your company! I learned so much more than I feel I would have been able to had I tried to travel the country without a guide. James was excellent! I don't think there was anything more I could hope for the the experience he provided for us. He was completely accommodating and had such a lovely attitude throughout our adventure to Skye. I will never forget my experience and am already imagining my next adventure to your beautiful country! Worth every penny. Thank you James! ♡

    We took the 3 day Skye tour with Brian. The first day was long and not very much info was shared. The time on the bus did not match the real time and on several stops there was a confusion on what time to meet. After talking to Brian about this he became more clear on times and where to find the bus. Our b&b was a shock. We asked for accommodations for 3 and we stayed in Kyle with Mike. There were 7 guests and one working bathroom. The rooms had not been vacuumed for what I would guess was a long time and the bunk beds needing dusting as the bed covers showed a layer of dust. We did not know whether to ask for another accommodation the next day or not. The town had maybe 3 restaurants and you had to walk to get your evening meal. The town was quaint and having come from Los Angeles a complete shock to us. The second morning we went downstairs to breakfast and Mike had prepared a meat eaters Scottish breakfast of eggs, sausage, bacon, and mushrooms. I can’t adequately describe the setting of tables, couches, books, and stuff in that room, but I can say that the breakfast was tasty and the host a very nice and sincere person. After learning that Getting supplies to Kyle is very difficult and what an effort it takes to get something simple like a toaster, or a toilet fixed, we felt grateful to share his home. Other people on our bus had better accommodations but it is the luck of the draw on what you get. Everyone stays at a different place. Internet was basically nonexistent due to weather. Day 2 we spent in Skye and we had more time to explore. Brian talked more this day and we saw several beautiful locations and had more time for lunch. We visited fort Williams and saw hairy coos and castles and many waterfalls during the day. Day 3was my favorite. We visited The collodin battlefield and visited lochness. We were traveling better as a group and Brian was a wealth of information on clan and Scotland. Hia

    Tour guide Andrew is such an amazing story teller with a great sense of humour and an incredible historical and general knowledge of Scotland. He made the tour so much fun and informative. The itinerary was well paced and gave me a wonderful introduction to the beauty and history of Scotland. Would highly recommend the tour and the tour company.

    Had a great guide with Brian. Very patient with straggling passengers. Went out of his way to make us comfortable on the bus and told great stories about the history of the sites we visited. The first day is long. The weather was mostly favorable but it takes a long time to get to skye. Once there we were shocked at the accommodations. 7 guests and one shared bathroom with a not very flushing toilet. The rooms were dirty and on a scale of 1 to 5, a one. However the owner was delightful and after talking with him a while it was obvious to us why nothing work d well. Satellite issues due to weather for instance. In the states the place would be condemned but I found mike a delightful host. The town had 2 restaurants so finding food was Cinderella

    I was really disappointed by this tour the one thing that made up our mind in choosing was the whisky tour which was cancelled leaving the tour guide to obviously scramble to find something else to do he took as to his friend cafe. Also beware of the lodgings on the last night I found hair mixed in our pizza and meal worms in my soup.

    Dear Sarah McInroy, Thank you for your feedback. We’re surprised you did not raise this with us directly during or immediately after the tour. Unfortunately, due to an unforeseen closure due to the weather we were unable to visit the Whisky Tasting on Skye. We hope you enjoyed the other impressive sights you saw on this date such as Kilt Rock, The Old Man of Storr, Uig and The Fairy Glen. We take complaints such as this incredibly seriously and have contacted the accommodation provider directly to get their response. As you’ll understand we allows guests to choose where they dine in the evenings. On this occasion it looks like you did not dine with our supplier but ate elsewhere in the village. Accommodation Owner: “There were no complaints about their food. They never complained or raised any concerns about the food. I asked them if everything was ok before they left and they said yes. I spoke to them extensively during their stay and they said nothing negative about their stay at all. I am sorry they had this to say about somewhere but as we do not serve pizza I cannot add to this as I cannot in all honesty see how it refers to us.” Kind Regards, Clare

    Our tour to the highlands was fantastic! Steven was an excellent tour guide, he had lots of stories about all the sites we were seeing. We made plenty of stops in between the main locations to get pictures and explore little towns. We chose to stay in the B&B, which I highly recommend. Our host David was very kind and his place was beautiful.
