Our guide Andrew was great. Very knowledgeable and had some great stories. Unfortunately, we we with many people on our minivan tour that refused to wear their masks. Our guide tried to enforce this day one, but gave up after that. After using another tour company for a day trip which checked temperatures and insisted on hand sanitizer and masks, I think Timberbush could improve on Covid safety.

This was a really great tour! Really well organised, especially with the Covid regulations! It was a really easy and chilled experience and we got to visit some amazing places! Great for a solo traveller as well, this was my first solo experience and now I can’t wait to do more! The driver guide Callum was great as well! I couldn’t fault the trip! If you’re thinking about booking in the future, don’t second guess it, just go for it! You won’t regret it! :)

I had very little time left in Scotland, and I am very happy that I booked this particular 3 day tour to cover the most beautiful places of Scotland. In terms of experience and price value this is a perfect deal in my opinion. I have really enjoyed the company of Graham who is a highly professional tour guide with so much knowledge and loads of life stories to tell people. He has a very good skill of time management and skill of being flexible and adaptable to a group needs. I booked a trip with accommodation and absolutely don't regret it! The host-lady was lovely and everything was clean and tidy in the room and in the house. I think it would be great to have more time during the photo stops but I do understand that it is difficult to cover so many places in 3 days. It was a little bit difficult to find places for lunch and enjoy it in 40-60 minutes time, but we managed. I do recommend this tour for everyone who doesn't have a possibility or time to travel on his/her own.
