What people are saying about Edinburgh

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.

Excellent tour with very entertaining tour guide and driver

Scotland is beautiful I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to visit the Scottish attractions outside of Edinburgh. The tour guide, Eric, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He kept telling stories about himself, Scotland and any other attractions we are going to or pass on our way. He also complemented many of his stories with a famous Scottish folklore song or one from the well-known bands of Scotland. The tour also provides some discount on the Loch Lomond cruise tickets. There was enough time to enjoy all attractions except Stirling castle. It is optional so we decided to explore the area around Stirling castle. Stirling city is beautiful but there wasn't enough time to go down the Stirling city and then up again as well so we were stuck with exploring just the area around Stirling castle. I think the tour should provide 2-2.5 hours at Stirling castle instead of 1.5 hours. A huge shout out to Eric and Timberbush tours for making it a memorable experience for us.

Excellent tour to the Highlands with friendly guide Hamish

We wanted to go on a tour a little remote of the overcrowded "ususal suspects" like Loch Ness. And we are happy, that we chose this awesome tour to the Highlands with Blair Castle, Queens View and Falls of Dochart. Our group was small (only four travellers; thank you Timberbush, that you didn't cancel the tour!), so the experience was quite private. Next to breathtaking views in the Highlands the visit to Blair Castle was an outstanding highlight. And our very friendly and knowledgable driver/guide Hamish showed us many other beautiful places along the road. We took the tour on a Sunday, so the traffic was quite low. We can highly recommend this tour for people who love nature and don't like it so busy.

Amazing walking tour with enthusiastic guide

Since we were but with 4 in total, Simon - our tour guide - had oceans of time to stop and explain every bit of mystery and history surrounding the Royal Mile. We wandered around town, strolling into hidden closes and discovering curious nooks, at a relaxed pace. The guide was able to provide us with plenty information and facts about the Mile and the city of Edinburgh itself, that you immediately feel like you'd lived there yourself for some time. Pity that he had to leave us at the Palace (since no guides are allowed inside), but even there he set us on our way with the audio-guides. In all a great experience, and would definitely recommend this organisation (and this tour)!

Fantastic- guide was knowledgeable, funny, engaging and the tour great

Brizo was engaging with typical Scottish humour. He had a wealth of knowledge and made the history and stories of the areas we drove through come alive. He clearly loves his country and wanted to pass that on to us. He played super music and got the whole bus singing! The tour stops were wonderful as well. From the whiskey distillery to the hairy coos to the scenic vistas and Loch Ness, it was super. We would highly recommend this tour to everyone!!!!!
