Very enjoyable tour

This is a beautiful tour and Vickie did a wonderful job driving, telling us historical and interesting facts and keeping us amused. She went out of her way and spent extra time making additional stops when weather got in the way at one of the scenic stops. I would highly recommend this tour if you have a day to go to Skye.

A fantastic tour!

Last Sunday we did the Skye tour and it was great! Kevin showed us a lot of beautiful places with stunning views. He knew a lot about Scotland, the history and the environment. He was really kind and made the whole expierence fantastic; best guide we could wish for. We stopped at a lot of places to look around and make some pictures. Except for the lunch stop in Portree, we didn't have time to stay a bit longer and do some walking. For us this was fine, but if you would like to stay a bit more in nature maybe this is not the tour for you. It was nice to have a small group and the bus was really comfortable. Kevin was a safe driver and if we had any questions, he was really helpful. Thanks a lot!
