Enjoy sitting in the van all day.

The original tour I booked got cancelled but it was replaced with fewer locations to see. Like Lochness, glencoe and the highlands. It would have been great if the driver stops and let us enjoy the sites for a longer time but he seldom stop and if he stops, we have five or ten minutes😏. At the stop where we get food, we couldn’t eat well because we have twenty minutes only. We spent ten minutes before we get our food.😌. Overall, we sit in the van long hours and just sight see.

We had a great day despite raining throughout . Our driver cum guide Andrew was very entertaining. The views were breathtaking. Went to a pub that was more than 300 years old. Superb trip !

Hi there, thank you for your review! I'm sorry to hear that you weren't so lucky with the Scottish weather - you can never know what to expect with it, we can get all 4 seasons in one day. I'm glad that you were still able to have a brilliant day with Andrew as your driver-guide and that you saw some beautiful scenery. Hopefully we will see you on another tour in the future - with better weather! Best wishes, David

The trip from start to finish was excellent. Stunning scenery. All the castles were memorable. Neil, our guide was very informative and interesting and committed to providing a day out for us to remember. Would have liked to stop for more photo opportunities e.g. driving along Loch Lomond and St Conan's Church. Will definitely book another tour in May. Highly recommended.

Had a fantastic trip. Our driver Stuart went above and beyond to make our trip exciting, from interesting facts to fun anecdotes whilst keeping us entertained with fitting music! Although the weather wasn’t great we saw some beautiful sights! We travelled with a young child who really enjoyed the trip!
