    Kenny the Tourist guide and motorist is THE BEST
    Great tour
    Magnificent landscapes and scenaries
    Highlands are amazing

    This is an interesting tour, but it makes for a VERY long day. We spent about eight hours on the bus which is to be expected. We covered a lot of area. It was a beautiful ride through Scotland. I do wish we would have booked a small group tour for this tour. The Urquhart castle was neat and the boat ride was fun. Loch ness and Glencoe are so beautiful. Driving to Inverness was not worth the extra time it took. It was just a short drive through the city. The meeting point was easy to find. Overall a good day through the countryside.

    Our group of four agree that the Scottish Highlands is one of the most beautiful areas we've ever visited... and we went in winter. We will have to return in summer!
    It's a long drive but the scenery is amazing and our tour guide (Patrick) was very informative. We learnt loads in terms of the areas history, geography and interesting trivia.

    This tour was really fantastic. Our driver and guide, Kenny, was so sweet, easy to listen to, played great music, and told great stories. Our tour never felt too long, with the right amount of stops,and plenty of bathroom stops, He was dressed in a traditional Kilt which looked so great. Bus was comfortable and we never felt cramped. Highly recommend this tour.
    Thanks so much .

    What a glorious part of the world to see! Absolutely splendid tour, I highly recommend it!! “King Dan” our tour guide was a delight to boot!

    My driver was Danny (aka King Dan). He was an excellent guide and very pleasant. On this tour, you get more for your money as you stop at some of the villages on the Scottish highlands. Also the prices up the highlands are excellent. My only feedback is to let customers know that the tour also has an option to take a cruise or go to a ruin castle at extra cost. Otherwise roam around at the rest stop or eat in the restaurant. I opted for the cruise on Loch Ness and enjoyed it immensely. I would book a tour with this company again. Hopefully Glasgow next.

    This was a bucket-list trip for my wife and me, celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary, and we want to say that thanks to Martin, our guide, the entire experience was amazing! Martin went out of his way to include as much as possible for us to see and experience during our tour. He was also very knowledgeable and funny, keeping us all interested as we learned about the history of Scotland. We will absolutely recommend this specific tour to our friends and will forever speak highly of Martin as we tell them about our wonderful experience seeing Loss Ness! It absolutely lived up to everything thing we hoped it would be.

    Gary was a wonderful host for his country, we enjoyed the commentary and his expert driving in rainy conditions.

  • 13-Sep-2019

    The trip was long! Your information said a 16 passenger bus. There were 3 60 passenger buses. I expected a small group tour. I felt lied to by you.
    The tour was fine however.

    Trip was fun. David was our guide and was spectacular. Fred was our driver, also fabulous. Now I want to return and stay a few days.
