The one-day trip to Eilan Donan Castle and the Isle of Skye was amazing. During the trip we could stop at tons of different locations to enjoy the panorama and take some pictures, including Loch Ness, astonishing cliffs on the ocean and a lot of noce places around Skye. Definitely recommended for the price if you don't have much time but still want to grasp the vibe of the Isle. Will definitely come back with more time to enjoy the whole Isle.

Fantastic ! James was very informative, friendly, and polite. Great driver- cautious and on time to start & on time getting us back. Added in a lot of additional stops for not only sight seeing; but, he also seemed to know where restroom facilities & great food places on the way & back in town. Great Tour

Worth every penny! The guide was amazing and knew so much about the history of the places we were passing. We stopped and got out of the bus a lot to take pictures etc. of many wonderful places and animals we saw from the bus. The day was very well planned but also flexible to changes and this created an ideal pace for the entire day. There were enough bathroom breaks and opportunities to get food and drinks. Absolutely nothing negative to say bout the day! :)
