    Brilliant day out! Ally was a great tour guide, so much fun and very knowledgeable. The scenery was amazing, can’t recommend enough. There was a little bit of walking, but nothing too strenuous. Definitely still manageable for someone with reduced mobility.

Brian Smith took on my family and I on a trip to the highlands and he made it a memorable experience. The tour was full of information, history and interesting knowledge. Brian is full of life and filled our day with laughter and brilliant jokes. We travelled to highlands and passed beautiful scenery. We stopped off and took pictures of the exquisite landscape around us. The tour guides are so informed they are able to tell us where to look and when to take our phone out for pictures. All in all, we really enjoyed our trip and he made it spectacular for the children.

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 ;)
