What people are saying about Stirling
Our guide, Gregor, was just the best! He provided almost constant entertainment during the drives from stop to stop - from historical tid bits to relevant music to jokes - it was so much cooler and more exciting than I'd expected. I highly recommend this tour and if you get Gregor, you scored big! Each stop was incredible, the lochs of Scotland are breathtaking and inspiring. Staying the night in Inverness was wonderful - a nice smaller town and a welcomed change of pace from the hustle and bustle of London where we were the previous week. Plus Inverness is gorgeous. We stayed close to Ness Bank and the river at night and in the morning was so calm and peaceful. I will miss that place and can't wait to go back! And the food was amazing too! We ate at Johnny Foxes and the haggis stuffed chicken was one of the best things I'd eaten the entire vacation. Gregor also recited Robert Burns' Address to a Haggis on the way back to Edinburgh which was pretty cool!
Our driver/ tour guide was phenomenal with all his knowledge of essentially every question we asked. He was constantly engaging and making sure everyone was taken care of and happy. I would most definitely recommend this trip or any of the other ones they have to offer because their services are wonderful! I like to be active and walking around when I travel, however this was such a nice break between to sit and see the scenery but still go out and enjoy it within a few days time. I would highly recommend it too if you would like to truly see the beauties of Scotland and not have to worry about the TINY roads.
The tour group comprised many nationalities and age group by Garry our guide catered for all. An excellent tour guide with the right balance of information and fun.
First of all let me just say that we were a group of 6! Only myself female with a husband a four males! I thought oh lord they will kill me when we saw they were the only men on the bus!!! But NO Worries, our tour guide KRISTY was so amazing that they actually Loved it too!! She knew her history! This tour is absolutely for Outlander lovers but the rest of the family should also tag along csuse it’s also about Scottish history!!! She knew SO much! Was Hilarious and absolutely delightful!! Her partner on the bus Dunkin was also very sweet and polite! I absolutely recommend this tour and if you are lucky enough to get the awesome knowledgeable KRISTY you will LOVE it!
We had a wonderful time. The driver gave us an excellent commentary of all the areas we visited. His explanations were full of historical significance including a great deal of personal experience. The cruise on Loch Lomond should not be missed, although it was quite windy and a bit chilly, it was beautiful. Stirling Castle is an exciting place to visit especially if you are interested in Scottish history. A thoroughly enjoyable experience!
