Enjoyed the tour but felt a little rushed at each stop. Didn’t have time to see much. The Inverary Castle was a rip off & not worth the extra £10. Not much to see there but scones were delicious. Seats on bus were cramped & I think I have a bruise where the seatbelt was digging in. It also would have been nice to have a toilet on the bus for the length of the tour. Our tour guide Robert was very knowledgeable & fun & the Scottish music was a bonus. He was fantastic. Overall enjoyed the Scottish countryside.

Stunning views, entertaining guide, glad to be hidden from the rain

The route was through breath-taking countryside. When rolling in the comfortable coach, the driver/guide was commenting on the area or letting us listen to a variety of local/related music. The whole trip was very interesting, comfortable and relaxing. Only drawback: we arrived an hour early back to Glasgow - while we would have loved to spend more time in Inveraray Castle. Also it might be worth considering if not to offer an optional visit to the Oban distillery (booking needed) as part of the tour.

We were so surprised at the quality of this tour based on the inexpensive fare we paid. We just arrived in Glasgow, were suffering from jet lag, and needed an easy day, but we didn’t want to waste our vacation time sleeping in the hotel. Charlie was exceptional. He taught us interesting history and balanced the trip with humor and local information. We were made to feel as if the tour had been customized for us! Thank you for a wonderful experience!

The Scottish Highlands are wonderful; we had the best tour guide.

The entire tour was wonderful. Our tour guide Andrew did a tremendous job. We could not get over the Splendor of the Scottish Highlands. We will definitely return to Oban. Andrew provided us with some extras. He had an excellent recommendation for a restaurant in Oban. Our 14 year old granddaughter really enjoyed the tour as well. We highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning more about Scotland the Highlands and the Coast.

Our drive with James took a little over the estimate which was perfectly fine. We stopped at a lot of locations to take pictures and get a good view of all the different places. We never felt rushed at any point. James had some interesting stories and funny jokes on top - we even got a little surprise on our way back :) Thanks a lot!
