Great day tour in a small group with great tour guide

When booking, I was a little skeptical whether the tour was not too big for a day. Because what I didn't want to do was rush around like these Asian tourists who just flock out of the bus for a photo and then quickly drive on again. First of all: Fortunately it wasn't like this :-) Although I was at the wrong meeting point in the morning (there are several Cafè Nero in Edinburgh ;-)) John (our guide / driver) took care of me and waited until I was there. The five of us drove off, and in Glasgow five more people joined - all in all a nice size. John already told exciting stories about Edinburgh and his crooks on the way to Glasgow and shone with a lot of knowledge and entertainment factor. At each stopover we had plenty of time to explore on our own (of course always with the best tips from John "up close"). All in all, it was a wonderful tour that I can recommend to everyone! Thank you "Lord John" :)

We loved our daytrip to Oban, Inveraray and the Highlands. We could not have had a better guide, she was super welcoming and her storys were really interesting. We would absolutley recommend this trip to anyone!

The journey is too long. There is little time at the places, most of them on the bus. It would have been better to have stayed in Edinburgh.
