I had very little time left in Scotland, and I am very happy that I booked this particular 3 day tour to cover the most beautiful places of Scotland. In terms of experience and price value this is a perfect deal in my opinion. I have really enjoyed the company of Graham who is a highly professional tour guide with so much knowledge and loads of life stories to tell people. He has a very good skill of time management and skill of being flexible and adaptable to a group needs. I booked a trip with accommodation and absolutely don't regret it! The host-lady was lovely and everything was clean and tidy in the room and in the house. I think it would be great to have more time during the photo stops but I do understand that it is difficult to cover so many places in 3 days. It was a little bit difficult to find places for lunch and enjoy it in 40-60 minutes time, but we managed. I do recommend this tour for everyone who doesn't have a possibility or time to travel on his/her own.

We saw a lot in only three days. Yes, there is a lot of bus riding, but I'm not sure what those complaining were expecting. It was during COVID restrictions, and the company was clear about expectations and provided a safe environment on the bus. Now, the bus was generally good. The minibus that had enough space and reclining seats. But on day two the bus was making so much noise it was rather annoying, and on the third day, it was borderline unbearable. Your guide was John, and he's a guide you'll hate loving. He's good with history as I was fact checking him. He was funny, accommodating and was going out of his way to grant some requests.

We were traveling with my adult brother who is on the autism spectrum And everybody especially our tour guide Alastair was very patient and wonderful with him. We had a three week trip in the UK and those three days in the Highlands with the wonder photo stops and interacting among the passengers was our favorite. My brother talked about this portion of the trip the most and we heard Alastair's name a lot as he reaped our trip to Friends and Family. Pictures do not do the highlands justice. We extended our trip just for this excursion and very thankful we did. It was Amazing!!

This tour is brilliant and very well-managed. There are plenty of stops along the way and plenty of chances for you to experience the beauty of the Scottish Highlands. As a Harry Potter fan, the highlight for me is definitely the Jacobite Steam Train, and not a lot of tours bring you to that. We also met a few highland cows and gosh they are cute. The coach is very comfortable too. Our guide Iain also made our trip super fun and enjoyable. He is knowledgeable and has bunch of funny tales to share. Definitely recommend this tour.

This was a really great tour! Really well organised, especially with the Covid regulations! It was a really easy and chilled experience and we got to visit some amazing places! Great for a solo traveller as well, this was my first solo experience and now I can’t wait to do more! The driver guide Callum was great as well! I couldn’t fault the trip! If you’re thinking about booking in the future, don’t second guess it, just go for it! You won’t regret it! :)
