It was an amazing tour! Our guide was Marita who’s got an incredible energy and made sure we didn’t get bored on the bus for one second! She’s very knowledgeable, told us many tales of Scottish folklore and other stories and entertained us for the entire trip. I have to say that we got extremely lucky with the weather as it was sunny the entire day and that made everything perfect. We came back to Inverness totally exhausted but it was worth it. I highly recommend this tour and Marita!

Andrew J was great and inspite of bad weather and unrelated changes to itinerary, he was great in ensuring everyone was well taken care of. I would only suggest that the tours be cancelled or rescheduled when the weather is not suitable so that the trip is actually enjoyable for tourists (someone like me who may not have checked the weather and booked this).

Absolutely lovely trip! Skye is a wonderfully peaceful place, and full of history too. Many thanks to our guide Adrian who shared many insights into Scottish culture, even his own clan’s history. Transportation and accommodation were quite comfortable. It was our third trip to Scotland, first to the island of Skye, and we believe it was well worth the money.

fell in love with Scottish Highlands and Isle of Skye. Our tour guide Andrew J was awesome and gave us a wonderful experience with his quirky wits and deep knowledge of the places. Must visit places in Scotland and highly recommend this tour

The trip was Fantastic. Specially Marta! She has a great knowledge of whole trip. Must recommended!!
