We had a lovely trip with our tour guide Scot!
He shared Scottish history in an elaborate manner and even sang songs and made us learn a song and sing with him!.
Apart from ensuring to cover all must visit places on one of the longest day highland trips from Edinburgh that included Hogwarts (Jacobite steam) train experience it was very kind of him to include special requests for visit to farm and see hairy coos. He kept to his promise and we got to see a close up view of two giant hairy coos namely Honey and Hanish!
Jacobite express was simply a dream come true and this tour made all of this possible!

Thanks a lot,
Tanushree and Bhaskar

A long yet fruitful trip! The tour guide Scot provided us so much info about the history of Scotland. The steam train ride is also a wonderful experience, it took about two hours where you can enjoy the beautiful scenery in Highland.

The visit of many interesting siteq related to Harry Potter.
Improvement: slowing down the car near some sites, to take better pictures e.g. Near The island where Dumbledore's tomb was located in the movie.

Me and my boyfriend are both big Harry Potter fans, this trip really went above and beyond our expectations.
The views are amazing the whole way through and Scot our guide was so informative and funny, kept us entertained throughout.. even with a little sing song!
It was a long day but it went really quick as it was so enjoyable.
We met some lovely people on the way and had a sing song with Scot on the coach.
Over all an amazing experience I will never forget.

We took a full day review with Highland Tours and our tour guide was Scot. He made our long 12 hour journey very easy and interesting for us with all his knowledge and surprises about so many locations in and around Scottish highlands. He kept the group on time and was extremely polite, very helpful to clarify how and where to get best picture from.
Scot was honestly one of the best tour guides that we have had on so far. The uniqueness of this trip was that he was driving and also sharing stories, and didn’t let us miss even one single stop of good views.

When I booked this trip with Highland tours, I didn’t come with too high expectations but Scot made it outstanding for us and I want to thank him for an amazing experience.

Hi,

Nothing makes us happier than being told that we exceeded your expectations! Thank you so much for sharing your experience of your tour and for recommending Scot as your guide. 12 hour-tours are not a challenge for him - he is just made for this!

We hope we have you travelling with us soon again!
