The trip was fantastic, lots to see and we stopped at lots of beautiful landscape places which were all picturesque. We got to see lots of the highlands cows, the travelling we did was over 300 miles and even had a boat cruise on Loch Ness with a glass of wine which was lovely. But unfortunately, we did not see the Loch Ness monster ( Nessi)!!!!

Fantastic tour and excellent tour guide Alan. Our tour guide Alan was very informative and knowledgeable about Scotland history. The optional Loch Ness cruise also well worth it.

Was brilliant. Our driver guide was so amazing with his knowledge of the history. Non stop talking about everything. Will definitely recommend this tour. We might do another one different part of the country. Give it a 10 out 10.

The trip was very worthwhile. The only complaint I have is that the seating was two crowded on the bus. The whole trip would have been more enjoyable if there were three seats across instead of 4. That said, I get the economics of it all.

The trip covers good part of Scotland an travels through the heart of highlands. Allan our guide had very good knowledge and gave very good description of throughout the journey. However it was mostly travel and sitting in the bus. We had only 1 stop at Loch ness which was for an hour. The rest were all photo stops only. The lunch stop again was a let down. We were given an hour only but at that stop the cafe we went to did not get our order even after 45 mins! This was the case with others who travelled with us as well! All of us had to get a refund for same. Oh yes one other point for the coffee stop in morning at Killmorgh (I guess), watch out for the rude lady at the cash register!

Hi Sumanth_D. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the Loch Ness tour has much as you had hoped. We do stress that this tour is a long day, with the highlight of the day at Loch Ness. I'm sorry it wasn't ideal for you; I feel some of the organisation at meal stops may have detracted from your enjoyment of the tour, so I will be in touch with the eateries mentioned to discuss your complaint with them. I do hope that despite your complaint, you enjoyed seeing more of Scotland! Best wishes, Amy

Searching for heritage

Driver Paul immediately recognised that passenger Catriona (Iona) is deaf and he removed his mask to enable lipreading. He went above and beyond our expectations as a guide. This was Ionas first visit to Scotland and the day trip gave her an insight into her heritage and the beauty of the Highlands (despite the rain)
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
Thank you for your review, Iona! It's wonderful to hear you enjoyed your time exploring Scotland with Paul; he's such a thoughtful guide who loves what he does - I'll pass on your kind words to him; it'll make his day! All the best, Amy
