A great day out
Oct 2021 • Friends
Craig was our guide for the day and what a great day it was. We were a small group of seven people and everyone hit it off which made it even better. Craig was knowledgeable and really knew his stuff. Saw some amazing sights and laughed a lot that day. Would definitely recommend and use again.

This is a great day out. Our guide Drew made it really special.
The format of the 8 seater vehicle is affordable yet avoids the resultant delays of a large group. The points of interest are well planned and the balance between having a day out and being informed was correct.

Thanks for the review for Drew, it's really nice to hear you feel we have a great balanced tour, informative but still fun. We agree the smaller vehicles mean less waiting on tardy others, always a bugbear of our own! Haste ye back

A fantastic Scottish experience!
Jul 2021 • Couples
What a great day we had with our fantastic tour guide, Bill! There were some fantastic stops included in this tour and we learnt so much about our surroundings at each step of the way. We went away with so much knowledge regarding Scotland's history and a new-found appreciation for the country. This tour is fantastic value and I would recommend it to anyone wishing to explore this part of Scotland. Thank you again to Bill for providing us with an experience that we will never forget. :)

A wonderful day trip
Aug 2021 • Solo
A brilliant day with our excellent and very funny guide Drew. Glenfinnan was the stop for watching the steam train coming over the viaduct, in true Harry Potter style. Great photo opportunities as the train also stopped.

Lots of great sights, scenery with the added bonus of sunny weather. The Commando Memorial was very poignant and moving. Loch Ness is truly beautiful but unfortunately we didn't see Nessie.

Also booked the Isle of Skye tour and lucky to have Drew as a guide again. Excellent guides really do make the difference. So, 2 x 5 star ratings for both trips.

Thank you Cathy for leaving a great review for Drew . It's such a shame that Nessie wasn't feeling outgoing but this certainly didn't spoil your enjoyment of the tour. Hope you got some fab photos. Haste ye back

The trip was great irrespective of the cloudy day. We arrived at Glenfinnan on time and managed to secure a good spot to watch the train passing by the viaduct. Craig was very informative and funny throughout the trip and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour.

Thanks Albert for the review for your trip with Craig. It's really spectacular the view of the steam train coming over the viaduct "Harry Potter" style, but the scenery there too is truly spectacular. So "Happy" you thoroughly enjoyed the day. Haste ye back
