  • Perfect day, very nice day tour with our guide Rob and crazy scottish weather

  • Wonderful trip through amazing countryside, very detailed tour. Really enjoyed isle of Skye

  • A very long day but so worth it. With the very experienced driving of the amazing Karen we were so pleased we didn't try to drive the hair pin bends and one car roads ourselves! and our Tour Guide Sandy who had a story for every stop we spent an amazing day experiencing the windswept beauty that is the Misty Isle. I was thrilled after mentioning to Sandy how I would love to see Scottish heroine's Flora MacDonald's grave pulling up there in the rain which was a totally unscheduled stop. Those little touches make a tour a five star experience.

    Highly recommended for those with limited time but don't want to miss out on seeing the iconic Island.

  • Out tour guide, Jonathon, was extremely knowledgeable! Our driver, John was excellent! Such beautiful country! We thoroughly enjoyed our time on the tour! Wonderful day!!

  • This was the most breathtaking of the three day tours I took during my recent trip to England and Scotland. The places we were taken to, and there were a lot of them, were gorgeous. I would recommend this tour to everyone who visits the Scottish Highlands and doesn't have too much time to explore Isle of Skye. We covered as much as 450 miles in a single day and while we couldn't spend too much time at any one place, we did get a sense of just how strikingly beautiful Isle of Skye is. While this tour can be exhausting for some, it was 100 per cent worth it. Some of the places we were taken to, like Kilt Rock and Quiraing, are spellbinding and the effect they have on you can't be described in words or captured in photos. The day of the tour was, for me, the best day in the fortnight I spent in the UK.

    Our guide, Jonathon, was extremely knowledgeable, erudite and helpful. He entertained us throughout with tales and folklore from the Highlands in fact, it was obvious how well-versed he was with the places we visited and it was reflected in every bit of information he shared with us. He even played us some interesting music with local roots. He definitely helped take an otherwise great trip to the next level.

  • Absolutely met our expectations and then some. Johnathan, the tour guide is highly knowledgeable, engaging with the tour goes, and kept us on schedule. Karen, the driver, did an excellent job of getting us from place to place, and also shared her knowledge of Scotland with us. Absolutely gorgeous scenery, and the history we learned was incredible. We would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see Skye.

  • Tour was great but be prepared for a long day as lots to see, arrive back around 9.00 pm. Skye is beautiful and very rugged. Plenty of photo opportunities. Missed out on going into Eilean Donan castle, closed for function. Felt tour company should have known this-disappointed. Guide and driver great.

  • Highly recommend this wonderful tour. It was run at a nice pace, with option to buy lunch and dinner on the bus, and plenty of sightseeing spots and photo opportunities. Johnathon our guide is so well informed and told us many fun facts on our way to the sights. Would do this tour again!! the Isle of Skye is a truly beautiful spot and this tour covers all of the main highlights!

  • Loved this tour! Covered a lot of ground in an efficient amount of time, plenty to sightsee and absolutely amazing guides. Sandy was very knowledgeable and a gem of a guide throughout the entire tour, telling anecdotes here and there and bits of history in the Scottish Highlands that highly enriched the experience. Strongly recommended!

  • Isle of Skye is a must-go!!! It is so beautiful and the mini-hike that the tour guide brought us on, was a good workout! Highly recommended....
