What people are saying about Fort William

I LOVED this tour. Rich was our guide and he was fantastic, he had a bunch of wonderful stories about the highlands to share. The natural beauty of Scotland is really worth seeing- I highly recommend this as an activity. I didn’t choose the boat tour option and I still had a lovely lovely time walking around and seeing some of the shops. Each of the stops we took on the tour was worth while, at our last stop I bought some ice cream!

Had a wonderful experience going to the highlands, our tour guide was Robert who was amazing he had lots of fun facts to tell the group. I would definitely recommend this if you want to explore the highlands of Scotland

두기 가이드님 진심 최고 아는 역사적 지식도 많고 운전도 너무 잘하고 이동 중에 보이는 곳곳들에 대해 정말 유머러스 있으면서도 정확하고 자세히 해줘서 스코틀랜드에 대해 잘 알게 된 것 같아요!!! 에딘버러오면 꼭 ... 추천입니다

Wet rough day didn't get to see an Eagle unfortunately. Did get to see plenty of Seal's. The guides were great.

The tour was fun and informative at the same time. Highly recommended
