What people are saying about Uig

Tour was a great overview around the Isle of Skye with stops along the way to and from Edinburgh. Our guide Adrian was very knowledgeable and kept us entertained throughout. One of our travel mates had an issue with her room when we got to Portree and Adrian called the tour company right away to have it straightened out. He was also great at letting us know at the beginning of the day the itinerary, how long each stop would be, how long it would take to get there and what to expect while there. I traveled with my daughter and chose to get the accommodations through GetGuide. They were in a delightful B&B about a 15 minute walk outside of the town. Highly recommend this tour!

Fantastic expedition, I got the accommodations included and was very pleased. Andrew was a great guide/driver and kept us all entertained with commentary, info, and great music selection. Tour was magnificent with some flexibility for what the group wanted to do. I was on the fence when booking this but am so glad I did, it made my trip to Edinburgh honestly.

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.

The Isle of Skye is absolutely stunning. We had the chance to discover incredible landscapes under a radiant sun. Our guide Gillian was very interesting and passionate about history. This is an excursion that I highly recommend!

Great 3 day stay with a great guide. Lots of buses but we discover the Isle of Skye and the Highlands in all their splendour. My darling even proposed to me on the unforgettable Isle of Skye
