What people are saying about Luss

Neil was an excellent driver and guide! Really gave a ton of insight into Scottish culture and history. He made the experience great. The sights we saw and many places we stopped to visit were more than enough to make me happy with the tour. I'd definitely recommend this over renting a car (unless you're wanting to do day hikes in some of the areas, since the stops with the van are not long enough for something like that). Overall very happy with the value and recommend to anyone!

I enjoyed this tour so so much! i was will a lovely group of travelers and Frazer was our guide. he warned us he’d speak a lot and he did but it was always very interesting facts and things about the area we were in at the time. he also played some good tunes

Had an absolutely lovely time - seen the loch from the shore many times over the years was lovely to see the shore from the loch instead - many thanks

This was a wonderful tour with Jeff C of Rabbies Glasgow! He kept us fully entertained and engaged and educated!

Great guide and he made very good plan for our trip
