What people are saying about Fort William
The tour was very interesting in terms of history and local facts. The nature was great. Brandon was the best guide I ever had, singing telling funny storys, joking. I very much liked that. He gave good information on ever stoppe. I had some challenges understanding all he said, as I'm Norwegian. I would however not hezitate to highly recommend our guide to other Norwegians. The Potter part of the trip was also interesting allthough I'm not the biggest fan. However my two kids are. If I should mention anything slightly negative, the information from Get your guide upfront maybe could have been better. The two youngest perhaps did expect a larger part of the tour to be on the train, and a smaller part on the bus. For me as a parent I had no problem with this, as the bus was quite comfortable.
All locations we went to were breathtaking and more than we expected how beautiful the country is. Our driver made extra stops that we all enjoyed. I wish we had more time to get lunch. Also the last stop was a little disappointing since we got to town after all the shops were closed except the ice cream shop but it had a long line. Not enough time to get the ice cream. We will definitely recommend this tour to everyone we meet.
Kenny was incredibly knowledgable about every part of the tour, but he didn't stop at giving you the facts, he was kind and entertaining. I loved seeing the highlands and Glencoe was breathtakingly beautiful. No signs of Nessie; she must have been napping. Bring a sweatshirt and a jacket for Loch Ness, it's chilly even in June! If you only have a couple days in Scotland, this is a great way to get a taste of the country.
Great tour guide who knew lots of fun trivia tidbits about Scotland. I enjoyed the commentary immensely. I did expect a few more stopping points, places to stretch legs and a few more walking areas, but it was a lot of ground to cover and see. Trip goers should know to bring snacks, and expecting to be on a bus or a boat for most of the day.
The sites we visited, Loch Ness and Glenco, were well worth the trip. But we spent the majority of our time on he bus. The bus driver, Paul, was a great driver but I grew very weary of his talking and story telling of Scottish wars and massacres. It’s was somewhat of a downer. But the sites were beautiful and the bus was comfortable.
