    Enjoyed the tour. Gary our tour guide is very knowledgeable and very nice guy. He made our trip jolly with some joke. I also would like to thank Gary, my husband dropped his phone somewhere and we knew he will never recover it. For some reason I called the tour company and inquired if they see my husband's phone. The guy who answered the phone said Gary is on his way to their office and said he found the phone and Gary himself brought cellphone in our hotel. Gary thank you very much again.

    This was a great way to see the Highlands if you don't want to be on the bus for 12 hours. This is less than 10 and we were able to see a lot of the old backwoods of Scotland. Our guide Gary was friendly and such a gentleman. He showed us as much as he could despite of the rain and cold. The town of Inveraray was very nice. We had a very good meal at the George Inn with fresh seafood.

    The highlands are beautiful. Inverary castle was ok. Nothing spectacular. Doune castle was underwhelming.
    The driver told us we couldn't be on our phones while on the bus, which I found was rather ridiculous. We're all adults and paid for this trip so if we chose to answer a phone call I didn't particularly see a problem.

    This was a wonderful trip, in spite of the weather (rainy most of the day). Paul was very informative, very helpful, and full of many interesting stories of the local history. The scenery was amazing - and my daughter especially loved being able to get up close to a "hairy coo"! The stops were timed well and we didn't feel rushed. Yes, there are a lot of stairs in the castle, but even with bad knees, I was able to enjoy the tours - but I balked at the spiral stair up to the top of Doune Castle!

    The trip was lovely! We traveled in a very nice luxurious and very comfortable Mercedes travel van. Our female guide made the trip! She was upbeat, funny, and told very entertaining historical stories during the lengthy rides in between the sites. It deff kept me awake and paying attention. It was raining, which changed some site seeing up a bit, but everything was just as beautiful! Such a breathtaking experience!! Would deff do again In the sunshine one day!!!

    This trip was outstanding and we enjoyed every minute of it. The driver was very knowledgeable and friendly. There was ample time to see each castle we stopped at and the additional side stops for photos was very much appreciated. I would go again as there was so much to see and take in!

    Great day trip! Stuart our driver and guide made our experience. He was extremely knowledgeable, factual, weaved interesting stories to the history, and upbeat! Stuart enjoys his job which overflowed to the passengers. We saw great countryside, 2 castles you could tour, other castles driven past and learned a lot about the local history. Don’t miss out!!!!

    Because of the tattoo, we had to disembark at Charlotte square rather than the royal mile. No problem except that there was no information about how to get to where we had started. We asked and he gave a wave of the hand, that way. We got totally lost and had to get a taxi, which was a sad and expensive way to end the day. Suggest you provide a map or at least detailed instructions! Otherwise a terrific day out!

    This was a great trip. The coach ride was broken up into easily manageable segments and the stops were a lot of fun. Our tour guide Paul was very informative and charming and a great storyteller.
