Our 4-day tour with Mac (MacKenzie) was incredible! It is an “Outlander” tour, but the depth of Diana Gabaldon’s books came alive with Mac. His knowledge of Scottish history was exceptional. His interlacing of the books’ fictional aspects with actual events was remarkable. For Outlander fans, this was wonderful. But even more importantly, Mac’s history of Scotland, its people, trials, successes, defeats will all remain with us. Aye, we were transported to another time. Much like Claire was, only in our imaginations. Thank you so much Mac.
Fab trip, fab scenery and attractions and even fab weather on the main day. But what made it even more enjoyable was Kev, our driver and guide, who maintained a truly warm and pleasant ambience throughout with his good humour and patience, wit and wisdom. Kev is a veritable fount of knowledge and he delivers it with such a light touch that you never feel it's TMI. His personal anecdotes and local folklore add a further dimension to what is a truly spectacular and memorable trip. Thanks Rabbie's and Kev.
A very well organised trip , in a comfortable coach and with a very well informed driver, passionate about his home island, who kept us passengers engaged with his facts, figures and explanations. We visited the key places expected with good time slots to get a flavour of the history and life of the island. The boat trip across can be a little rough, but our day it was perfect. Possible sighting of cetacea was not to be for us sadly.
This tour is good value, the bus driver/tour guide was very friendly, helpful and informative. The Orkney Islands have an interesting history, the Neolithic Villge was spectacular.
Great crossing on the ferry,then the bus trip took us around the islands with the driver being a very good driver as well as tour guide, all in all a very enjoyable day.
