We had a wonderful 3 day tour and we're lucky with good weather. Our driver and guide Brian was thoroughly entertaining throughout the trip, with his unique storytelling talent , great sense of humour and the knack of playing appropriate music relevant to the places we were visiting. Am very glad we booked our own accommodation on this trip.

Neil, our driver/guide was a wonderful fount of knowledge and lore. He considerately built in 2 hikes since we don’t typically sit on a bus all day. Would have loved more movement on first and last day but long drive was necessary to get to and from our destination. Skye is gorgeous.

Hi there, thank you for your review! I'm happy to hear that you had a great time out on tour with Neil and that he was full of knowledge and stories.

Paul B was wonderful but the air conditioning on the bus didn’t work well and the speaker system had problems.

Hi there, Beverly. Thank you for your review! I'm really glad that despite there being some issues with the air conditioning and the speaker system, you were still able to have a brilliant tour with Paul B as your driver-guide. We will definitely look into those as well as we like to ensure we have the best coaches about. Hopefully we will see you again some day soon! Best wishes, David

Hi there, Charles. Thank you for your review! I'm glad you had a great time on the 3 day Isle of Skye, the Highlands and Loch Ness tour with Gillian. It's such a beautiful part of the country and it must've been made better with Gillian's knowledge! Hopefully we will see you again soon! Best wishes, David

Very exciting tour and we got to see many cool spots in the Isle of Skye. My only feedback is that I wish we got to see Fairy Glen too. Jim, our tour guide, was also very knowledgeable and played really nice music. Will definitely go again when i come back to Scotland

Hi there, Ellyne. Thank you for your review! I'm glad you had such a great time your 3 day Isle of Skye, Highlands and Loch Ness tour with Jim and that you found him very knowledgeable with a great taste in music. I'm sorry you weren't able to visit the Fairy Glen, this is due to the fact that often that path is very muddy, and it's quite a way from the parking for the bus, which can mean it's not accessible for everyone. Hopefully you get to see them some day! Best wishes, David

Our guide gave us a most excellent experience. Making sure we got the most out of the time we had, we saw all of the places we wanted to see and more. As a first timer to the Isle of Skye, I was blown away by the experience. I will be using Viator to book my next tour for sure.

Scenic tour with great guide

We had a great time with Graham on this tour. Pickup was timely, and Graham provided information throughout; he also broke up the drive with scenic pull-offs. His knowledge of the area paid off as we had great weather and he was able to fit in additional stops.

Thanks for the review, Marcia. It's wonderful to hear you enjoyed your time with Graham, your Driver-Guide. All the best, Amy

Flawless way to discover Scotland's natural treasures

We had the most profitable time we could in the Skye Island and some other stops before and after getting there: Loch Ness, photo stops, etc. But also some surprises like beer and Whisky tastings. We had a terrible weather the first day (considering Scotland's usual weather and that it was the 11th of December) but Graham managed to take advantage of all the itinerary could give us. Accommodation was great too in a guest house, but I suggest to be given more info about it, not until last moment. Also sometimes you feel there aren't enough stops from the bus, but it's still difficult to stop all the time and miss the daylight to see all the programmed spots in the tour.

Highlands Tour

This is a must see while in Scotland. Our tour guide and driver Neil was fantastic - highly recommend that you get him as your guide. He was very knowledgeable and even knew really good places to stop for the food breaks. We saw so many sites on and off the beaten path. Don't leave Scotland without doing this!

I did the 3-day Isle of Skye, Loch Ness, and Scottish Highlands Tour from Glasgow, ending in Edinburgh - I'm so glad I signed up for it, it was a great trip! Neil was our great driver and guide and storyteller - he's extremely knowledgable, lovely, and funny. And has an amazing talent of telling epic tales about the history of Scotland and Skye (and many other things including movies made, sheep, legends and witches) to make even longer periods of driving very enjoyable. Overall and excellent tour, I highly recommend it!
