What people are saying about Scottish Highlands

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.

Fantastic guides on the bus and boat. Lovely trip.

I am not normally a fan of tours but this one was great, with a very interesting and entertaining commentary from the coach driver, and interesting history and local information commentary on the boat. There was heavy traffic in Inverness the day I booked, meaning that the bus arrived / left late and we missed our timed boat. We were given two options for how we wanted to do the tour (2 hour cruise, or cruise and visit the castle) and everyone’s choices were accommodated, we just arrived back in Inverness later than originally planned. We were also given complimentary snacks on the cruise because of the delay. The castle is beautiful and the cruise really worth doing as you find out more about Loch Ness.

Absolutely worth the money, friendly informative and enough time !

Everything went well, Busdriver has been very welcoming, friendly informative and funny , ship crew just the same and the Hot chocolate with Whiskey soooo good . I have been at Urquart castle before but to see it from the Loch has been just amazing and I think we had enough time to walk around ( 55min) . all in all it has been a great tour and even my son (10years) enjoyed every minute ! Thanks to everyone involved, I would highly recommend it !

Fabulous day out with great guide and driver.

We thoroughly enjoyed our day at Loch Ness and exploring Urquhart Castle. The weather was warm and sunny. The drive to and from was made interesting by our guide Alan and a good ride by driver Marius. The whole tour was well organised and coach was comfortable. I'm glad I chose Get Your Guide which was good value for money. Thanks guys for a lovely scenic afternoon out.
