What people are saying about Edinburgh

Excellent tour of the Scottish highlands with very entertaining guide

If you are in Scotland, Scottish highlands are not to be missed. If you have just 1 day, this tour is the one for you. This tour takes you through all the key highlands attractions close to Edinburgh - Queen's View, Hermitage walk, Dunkeld, Blair Castle, River Garry, Killiecrankie gorge, Glencoe, etc. The guide entertains you throughout the tour with various folklores and stories from Mary, Queen of Scots to the Scottish highlands. There is enough time to visit provided all of them except Queen's View and Blair Castle. You may require 2.5-3 hours for Blair Castle instead of 1.5 hours which is provided. As for the Queen's View, it's too beautiful to just take a few snaps and then leave. 20 mins is too less a time for that. I am a big fan for admiring natural beauty and I would require at least 1 hour to be at the spot. It was quite rainy on the day of the tour but Matt made the best of it and made sure that we enjoy all the spots even if that means we reach to Edinburgh 1 hour late.

Excellent tour with very entertaining tour guide and driver

Scotland is beautiful I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to visit the Scottish attractions outside of Edinburgh. The tour guide, Eric, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He kept telling stories about himself, Scotland and any other attractions we are going to or pass on our way. He also complemented many of his stories with a famous Scottish folklore song or one from the well-known bands of Scotland. The tour also provides some discount on the Loch Lomond cruise tickets. There was enough time to enjoy all attractions except Stirling castle. It is optional so we decided to explore the area around Stirling castle. Stirling city is beautiful but there wasn't enough time to go down the Stirling city and then up again as well so we were stuck with exploring just the area around Stirling castle. I think the tour should provide 2-2.5 hours at Stirling castle instead of 1.5 hours. A huge shout out to Eric and Timberbush tours for making it a memorable experience for us.

Breathtaking scenery, amazing - Yvonne made it special

We have never visited Scotland before and we opted to join a tour as it would take away the planning, the driving and the stress involved in the logistics. We were drawn to this tour as it visited the Isle of Skye had a good itinerary and we wanted to travel the steam train. We were certainly not disappointed. From the minute we arrived at the check in for the adventure, the staff were friendly and organised. We had Yvonne for our trip, and she immediately impressed me. To be frank, she made the trip... given she was running the driving, the tour guide and planning etc. She was incredibly patient, knowledgeable about the local history and with a fantastic personality that drew everyone on the tour into what become a friends day out. We would have no qualm in booking again and are already looking at tours further afield and will certainly be asking for Yvonne by name. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Fantastic tour with a friendly and funny guide.

Fantastic tour through the Highlands followed by a boat trip on the dark Loch Ness. Everything was well arranged. The tour guide / driver Allan was funny and was able to tell with great passion about the history of Scotland and occasionally interrupted by matching music. Pittstops were regularly held to enjoy the surroundings and take pictures. What I thought was a pity that we made a stop at the Callander parking lot and not at Doune Castle, which is just in front of it. Apart from that, we had a fantastic day.

The tour was excellent very enjoyable day

The driver Alan was excellent, funny, a mind of information very knowledgable, very flexible for photo stops and obviously loves his job. Gets involved with the passengers and makes you feel very welcome. Just a shame his team lost 7-0 on the day
