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.

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.

Are you ready for adventure?! Rose is so buckle up! (Rose is the guide

Rose did a phenomenal job guiding us through time and to the highlands. Not only did she share stories of great adventure and myth but of personal life experiences and fun moments. This made all the difference and created a more personable experience even without being face to face! Now that’s talent!! She even shared how much she loves her job and co-worker Stephen... who is apparently a phenomenal human so.. KEEP IT UP STEPHEN! Thanks Rose for the trip!! I hope this review gets to a raise!! I promised you a good one!

Fantastic tour with a friendly and funny guide.

Fantastic tour through the Highlands followed by a boat trip on the dark Loch Ness. Everything was well arranged. The tour guide / driver Allan was funny and was able to tell with great passion about the history of Scotland and occasionally interrupted by matching music. Pittstops were regularly held to enjoy the surroundings and take pictures. What I thought was a pity that we made a stop at the Callander parking lot and not at Doune Castle, which is just in front of it. Apart from that, we had a fantastic day.

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!!!!!
