Awesome Highlands

Tour guide was funny and very knowledgeable. There were a few stops for overlooks and they were beautiful. However, I personally would have rather seen a Loch Ness gift shop. Highly recommend this tour to get your Highland feels.

Can’t say enough good things about this tour or our tour guide, Connor! My friend and I loved how intimate the tour was and how personable the guide was - we felt like we got the most well rounded experience and saw a very unique perspective of the Highlands. Connor was informative and very witty, which made the 12 hour tour so enjoyable. I’ve done lots of tours and this is the best I’ve ever done. I’d recommend to anyone and everyone going to Scotland!

Andy was a first-rate guide for our day long drive from Inverness to Isle of Skye. Our small group was able to learn from Andy's personal expertise on the history, the food and the economic of the Scotland. The weather went from sunshine to steady rain, which lended for outstanding photo opts of numerous waterfalls rolling from the mountians and a rainbow over the bay. We were glad to sit back, take in the scenery and let Andy do the driving for the day. I will recommend this company to others looking for adventure and to see the true Scotland. Thanks Andy!

We had a great time. Andy was our tour guide and he was fantastic. The weather was terrible that day but we didn’t let it stop our fun. Skye is beautiful and we wish we could have stayed longer. I highly recommend this tour.

Subsequent to this tour, I took a day trip with another company. The tour guide wasn't even Scottish, which made me appreciate Connor and the trip to the isle of Skye even more. Connor did an excellent job of both explaining things and driving. Only a Scotsman would have the insight that he has. I would take this tour again and enjoyed it thoroughly. thank you Connor!!!

We had fabulous weather and saw Loch Ness, Eilean Donan Castle and the beautiful Isle of Skye at their very finest. We are so grateful to our driver/guide Duffy for sharing his great knowledge, humour and anecdotes with us. We are four seniors and much appreciate his thoughtfulness and consideration during the trip. His employers are so lucky to have him. Highly recommend this tour. Thanks too Duffy. Donna.

We went on this tour with Connor. Our group was small -- only 5 -- so Connor was able to make a few changes to the order of the itinerary so that we could stop a couple more places than usual. Connor was both informative and funny, and talked with each of us. He was great at timing each stop -- not too long, not too short. Eilean Donan Castle was SO beautiful in the morning -- with reflections on the still water. And Skye is very worth the visit. We were able to spend time in Portree on our own at lunch, and then had stops at beautiful locations around the island. I highly recommend this tour. It's a long day, but worth every minute!

We had a great day with our guide Andy, who really knew his stuff and made us feel comfortable. The day tour is long but worth it, you see a lot of great sites in one day. This gives you a very nice picture of the highlands

Isle of Skye var magisk! Fantastisk guide som var både en dyktig sjåfør og historiker. Vil anbefale denne turen til alle som ikke har tid til å dra til de forskjellige stedene selv.

Kanon tur, vi fick se allt vi ville och veta allt om det vi besökte, och även mycket om Skottland, detta berodde på vår fantastiska guide Andy, som var kunnig trevlig och bjöd på sig själv.

A destacar el conductor y guía Connor, muy agradable y atento en todo momento. Al tour sólo le ví una pega y es que el "Old man of Storm" no se ve a la distancia que se vé en la publicidad del tour (la foto de arriba), se vé muy lejos y ya que no se ajusta a la realidad deberían cambiar esa foto.
