Stunning scenery, Gaelic speaking guide
Katherine_D
, May 2022
The best thing about this tour was being able to soak in the scenery of this beautiful place for an entire day! Our tour guides, Kyle and Luke, had plenty of information, background stories, music and jokes to share. Kyle is an experienced driver (which really helped since I’m prone to travel sickness) and had extensive knowledge of the history and language of places we visited. We especially liked hearing him speak Gaelic and explaining what the names of places meant. We made plenty of stops to breathe in the fresh air, walk around and take pictures.

Hi there, thank you for your review! Skye is really beautiful, so I'm glad you enjoyed it with Kyle and Luke! It's great to hear that Kyle was a great driver which helped with your travel sickness and that they were full of knowledge about where you're visiting! You'll have to start Gaelic lessons so you can learn what even more Scottish place names mean. Hopefully we will see you on another tour soon as well to show you even more of Scotland! Best wishes, David

Great tour guide!! Very informative and educational. Great tour if you like getting out a lot to take photos outside of the bus although after a long day can be tiring. Was not aware the price included the bus and to the castle but not actually to get in the castle itself.

Marita, our tour guide, was super nice and funny. She made the experience extremely pleasant even though the weather didn't cooperate to give us the best views. The weather did allow us to see some amazing waterfalls, as the rain was rather consistent all day. Even with the rain is was a beautiful experience and one I would recommend to anyone!

We picked the worst day to take this your as it rained the whole day. Our driver Ryan was great and made the most of it, but some things we just couldn't see because of the cloud cover. Still was a great time anyway.

The trip is totally worth every penny! Our guide, Ryan, was entertaining and very informative. He made the experience special by providing historical information as well as helpful hints and funny stories. He added a personal touch by including some stories about his own experiences. The scenery is beautiful and cannot be imagined without taking this trip in person. Thanks Ryan!

Day spent with Amazing views and photos at isle of skye

Julian was our guide and it was a big bus with around 30+ people. Even with so many people on board everyone was on time and the trip went on as scheduled with lot of photo stops and breaks. Eilean Donan castle was amazing and so was the Isle of Skye. We stopped at lot of places to capture the beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean, waterfalls, Old man of store, kilt rock etc. Only suggestion is that the guide should speak bit loudly on the mic so that he is audible till the last seat.

Hi there, thank you for your review! It's great to hear that Julian was such a great guide on your Isle of Skye tour from Inverness and that everything was on schedule despite being a bigger tour.

Hopefully we will see you on another tour some day soon! Best wishes, David
