We do not use ropes in this canyon but their are lots of swims, slides and jumps to be tackled as we start our descent. You will have two experienced canyon guides with you at all times during your half-day tour and they will ensure that your trip is both safe and enjoyable.

    The tour was on a nice coach/tour van with USB ports for every seat. I thought this was great for keeping my phone charged between stops. Our tour guide was phenomenal!

Almost every stop has restrooms, a cafe, and souvenirs. The tour has tons of opportunities to take pictures as well. Fort William is a cute little town. I recommend the restaurant The Great Glen.

    I had a great time on my two day tour. I went the week after Hogmanay, so it was cold. But totally worth it! It was so beautiful seeing all of the architecture and just the colors of the Highlands. We went to see standing stones at Clava Cairn, the Hermitage, as well as the Glenfinan viaduct (to name a few) which is featured in Hardy Potter. Hearing that I was an Outlander fan-Michael, my tour guide tried to squeeze in any sights he thought I’d appreciate along the way. It really helped make my trip multidimensional, more than just staying in one city the whole time. It also took the stress of planning independent exploration and all the details that requires, off of me. This made it so I could relax and more fully enjoy my trip. Thanks you guys for helping make my trip memorable. Michael you were fantastic! Cheers

The driver and tour guide Neil was full of information some rather a bit gruesome but fun all the same. This is a lovely tour, a great day out, as an anxious single traveller it was perfect to explore in a safe way. Loved the Kelpies, and Stirling castle, the cruise on Loch Lomond was relaxing and enchanting

Brilliant day out! Ally was a great tour guide, so much fun and very knowledgeable. The scenery was amazing, can’t recommend enough. There was a little bit of walking, but nothing too strenuous. Definitely still manageable for someone with reduced mobility.

We had so much fun because we had the coolest driver ever! Brian Smith made the trip very lively. I normally sleep during travel but this is was different. We did not even notice the time and we did not feel that it was a long travel.

Very nice day, lots to see and regukar stops. Jim our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.
