I took this tour on my own, to explore some more of the beauty of Scotland. Our guide, Steven, told us great stories about the places we drove through and visited. The Isle of Skye is a beautiful place to explore, as is the rest of the highlands. The tour visits some of the amazing highlights of the area; our tour guide gave us options to choose from at certain points of the trip. All in all, I had a very pleasant, beautiful, and memorable 3 days.

Amazing Experience

We had an absolutely great time!! The accommodation arranged by the company was absolutely amazing with a stunning sea view! The bus was very comfortable and spacious a vital thing for the hours spent driving. Andrew treated us like proper kings!! He is a great story teller and knew the answers to all of our questions!! He is also very fun and was kind throughout the journey. He also very happily took us to the Fairy pools (which was not included in the package).

A well organized tour with a very friendly and helpful driver Dave.

I would suggest that who ever is choosing this tour in winter, it is highly recommended to take a knee length boots with you as to go down to see the fairy pools is a bit messy and one might end up with wet feet. However, I would recommend this tour.
