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 ..."

    I love the tour. Our guide Mark was very professional, organized the tour effectively, and he was also a wonderful story-teller. Learned a lot about Scotland history through his vividly told stories. And I think his taste of music is great too. The B&B we... Read more

    Me and my friend loved the tour. We had enough stops to take pictures or to buy food. We had really good weather even though it rained for one whole day. That was our favorite day, because we could experience typical Scottish weather. We had two good nights... Read more

    Hi Brooke, Thank you for taking the time to review your tour with us. I'm glad to see that overall you enjoyed your tour with us despite the typical Scottish weather! On the Isle of Skye most of the sites people wish to see, such as Old Man of Storr and Kilt Rock are naturally occurring and so are outside without any cover. If we were to change the tour to visit more indoor attractions there would not be enough time to see all of the beautiful scenery Skye is famous for, however I appreciate the weather can have an impact on the experience of your tour. Thanks again for your feedback, we are constantly looking to improve our tours and as part of our customer experience review will include your valuable feedback. Kind Regards, Fiona R

    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... Read more

    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

      It is a great site for looking at different offers. I am very excited about my upcoming trip later down in the year. I have recommended TourRadar to friends and family who want to travel. It is simple to book and secure tours. The communication is fast from tour companies which are needed when considering investments such as tours.
