Excellent tour of the Scottish highlands with very entertaining guide

If you are in Scotland, Scottish highlands are not to be missed. If you have just 1 day, this tour is the one for you. This tour takes you through all the key highlands attractions close to Edinburgh - Queen's View, Hermitage walk, Dunkeld, Blair Castle, River Garry, Killiecrankie gorge, Glencoe, etc. The guide entertains you throughout the tour with various folklores and stories from Mary, Queen of Scots to the Scottish highlands. There is enough time to visit provided all of them except Queen's View and Blair Castle. You may require 2.5-3 hours for Blair Castle instead of 1.5 hours which is provided. As for the Queen's View, it's too beautiful to just take a few snaps and then leave. 20 mins is too less a time for that. I am a big fan for admiring natural beauty and I would require at least 1 hour to be at the spot. It was quite rainy on the day of the tour but Matt made the best of it and made sure that we enjoy all the spots even if that means we reach to Edinburgh 1 hour late.

Wonderful relaxing day in off-the-beaten-track locales

I loved this tour. Being able to wander in the gardens at Blair Castle was extremely peaceful and restful; I was able to see and photograph many small birds. I loved Queen's View, too; it's a majestic panorama of some of the best warm, welcoming highland scenery, and I would not have wanted to miss it. The walk alongside the river at the Hermitage was excellent as well; I felt like I was out in the countryside experiencing it, not just viewing it through glass all day long at top speed. When we were riding in the coach, it was nice to drive on less trafficked back roads where I didn't have white knuckles all day as we constantly passed endless lorries and dozens of other tour vans at top speed on impossibly narrow two-lane highways, as we did on the other highland tour I took with a competing company. Graham was knowledgeable, friendly, and authoritative; he kept us safe and well-scheduled, providing all needed information for comfort and safety. I appreciated his kindness.

Breathtaking scenery, amazing - Yvonne made it special

We have never visited Scotland before and we opted to join a tour as it would take away the planning, the driving and the stress involved in the logistics. We were drawn to this tour as it visited the Isle of Skye had a good itinerary and we wanted to travel the steam train. We were certainly not disappointed. From the minute we arrived at the check in for the adventure, the staff were friendly and organised. We had Yvonne for our trip, and she immediately impressed me. To be frank, she made the trip... given she was running the driving, the tour guide and planning etc. She was incredibly patient, knowledgeable about the local history and with a fantastic personality that drew everyone on the tour into what become a friends day out. We would have no qualm in booking again and are already looking at tours further afield and will certainly be asking for Yvonne by name. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Kirsty was our guide and she was a true professional. First class

Her “wee stories” were super, very informative and also with the great Scottish sense of humor. Being ourselves Scottish perhaps we appreciated them far more. THANK YOU KIRSTY for a wonderful trip. Will most certainly use Highland Explorer Tours again.

I have to leave a special word for Angela as she was really amazing.

The tour was beautiful, the places unforgettable, namely the Queen's View, Blair Castle and the tall trees. Longing to visit the highlands again with your bus's and super professional guides. Perfect timings and impecable driving.
