We had so much fun because we had the coolest driver ever! Brian Smith made the trip very lively. I normally sleep during travel but this is was different. We did not even notice the time and we did not feel that it was a long travel.

It was great! We highly recommend it. Brian, our tour guide was amazing! He was knowledgeable about scottish history and made it fun and interesting all through out the trip. His energy is just Wow! Request for him ;)
