This tour is highly recommended, excellent value for money. The scenery is beautiful; Kilkenny was absolutely worth seeing. Overall the schedule was reasonable. I particularly liked the demonstration of the shepherd dogs (Border Collies) at work. Shepherd Mike reported a lot of interesting things about working with dogs and sheep. Our guide Erin took good care of everything and everyone, told us in an entertaining way and gave us a lot of different information. The driver was also friendly and attentive.

An amazing day with Brian and Dave! The guided tour by Brian was very informative, interesting and funny. Not even the bus rides were boring! A full day of breathtaking views of the mountains, lakes and valleys and spectacular architecture. Maggie and Rosie (border collies) did an amazing job at herding sheep with their owner Michael who told us all about farming and herding sheep. Overall a wonderful day and a big thank you to everyone involved in making the day so great!

Everyone was very nice and everything was planed to perfection. The mountains were beautiful. We really enjoyed the sheep herding demonstration!

Perfect option when you do not have a lot of time for traveling by yourself and rent a car! I absolutely recommend it! It was the great day!:)

Brian was amazing. 10 stars out of 5!!! Best tour guide we have had. And, the Highlands were beautiful! Much appreciated.
