    This was an incredible day tour! The places we visited were stunning - the Isle of Skye was probably the highlight of my two-week trip around Scotland. The rugged beauty of its landscape, the sense of untouched wilderness, the vast magnificence of the slopes and hills all around us... I want to go back already! The tour was made all the better by our amazing guide, Jim - he was so knowledgeable and friendly. You could tell immediately that he knew his stuff, and that he was passionate about sharing everything with us. From start to finish, he kept us entertained and informed by telling us interesting facts, by telling us stories and cracking jokes, and by playing some wonderful Scottish music (he even explained the context of each song before playing it). He truly made the tour an unforgettable experience - my only regret was that the tour had to end! I cannot recommend this tour enough.

    Highly recommend this trip. Although it is a 12 hour round trip, there are so many highlights to see. There are also plenty comfort breaks throughout. We had a guide, Paul, who was knowledgeable and funny!! Left as a friend. Eileen donan castle is a must see on any trip this way.

    I loved this tour. It was the highlight of my trip, so far... The beauty spots are stunning and the pictures do no justice. Pack your bags and come to Scotland! Helen was a brilliant tour guide and was very patient and kind. We managed to chat for the whole trip (with 1 other person onboard). Thanks Helen for a great day!
