What people are saying about Stirling

Really nice tour, Stuart was really a nice extra do this trip, he had lots of stories to tell. Beautiful scenery through this trip, Loch Lomond was amazing, the boat ride is really worth it. Just a bit sad that we didn't get to go to the Wallace monument, and we were so close to it. I think that who organizes this ride should have that in mind...

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

Well organised and everything was on time. Comfortable coach, felt safe. Neil was excellent, very knowledgeable and filled us in with interesting history. The only slight disappointment was that we felt very rushed at Stirling Castle, another 30-45 min would've made it really worthwhile.

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