Amazing trip from Edinburgh to the highlands of Scotland. Our guide / driver Nestor was awesome and made it a great “Scottish” experience. He played great Scottish music and gave the history behind it along side with the epic scenery which really created a unique and enjoyable experience. What I loved the most was that Nestor set the ground rules/expect and at the beginning so there were no surprises and everything went to plan. We had extra photo ops which I was very valuable for me and my wife. He dodged the busy areas so we all can have more time and privacy to take better photos. Overall a great trip, thank you Nestor for sharing your culture with us!

Very nice excursion which makes us discover the Highlands and the nature of Scotland. Super guide always very attentive and attentive to the group. Good driving from the driver. The town of Fort William where the lunch break is not very interesting but there is a nice café and the time passes quite quickly. We spend a lot of time on the bus but we don't see the time spent, there are pee/view breaks all along, the guide makes relevant comments and punctuates the day with a rather nice playlist. We would like to thank them for this great tour. Glencoe and the Glenfinann Viaduct are a must see!

What can I say apart from it was fantastic, Fraser our guide was informative and knowledgeable he was brilliant, John our drive was very good. The sights we saw and experience were amazing. It’s a long day but worth it. You have lots of stop off’s for photo opportunities and toilet breaks. Definitely worth the money will definitely do one of these again.

The tour itself was beautiful. The guide, Paul, was amazing. He was always available in case anything happened and was really good at explaining the history of each site.

The day was perfect from start to finish! Penny, was amazing, knowledgeable, fun and made the whole experience exciting and enjoyable.
