    We had the most amazing day, visiting beautiful castles and nature of the Western highlands. Our guide Russel had the perfect mix of interesting stories, bad jokes and fitting music for the tour. I cannot recommend it more! 10 out of 10.

    Very nice tour with a lot of stops to contemplate the landscapes and take pictures. Our guide was very helpful, albeit a bit hard to understand sometimes because he was talking so fast. The castles were a nice touch, as we managed to see at least 6 in a day.

    Our tour guide, Catty, was amazing. She is a great story teller and has so much information to share about the areas we visited. The scenery is beautiful and the castles were so different!

    Our guide Jim was fantastic! We learned a lot about Scottish culture and history from him during this day trip. The tour was well organized, we saw stunning sights and beautiful landscapes. Highly recommend this tour, it was our highlight of our Scotland trip.

    Great tour! If you get Queen Kelly as your tour guide she is awesome, very funny and lots of great stories and recommendations if you haven’t visited before. We had time before our first castle visit and Kelly squeezed in a quick stop to see Kelpies too.

    Awesome tour! A highlight of our trip. Stephen was an excellent tour guide! Definitely recommend it!

    Peter was a lovely guide. We would definitely go with him again. Very knowledgeable. This was our first time to both castles.

  • 01-Oct-2022

    All the places we visited were amazing and Ray, our guide, made the day even better. He was very informative and entertaining. Great day into the west highlands.

    The sights we saw were truly amazing but unfortunately I could have just saved the money on these expensive tickets and gotten my own car as the tour guide/driver David did not care to communicate clearly with us (or any of the other 15 passengers) at all. His microphone wasn't effective and he spoke rather fast, despite the fact that all of the passengers were travelling internationally. We reminded him 2-3 times that his words were not clear but it did not change anything. It's rather sad as the sights had so much history but we could not understand a word of it. I tried to ask the others on the bus to explain the facts to me but they could not help as they also did not understand most of it.
