          Fantastic day at Glen Affric!
          I had a wonderful photography tour to beautiful Glen Affric with Ryan. He was a great guide, taking me to a variety of places with superb views. The pace was unhurried and I was really able to soak in the spectacular scenery. He gave me helpful photographic advice and I learnt some very useful tips. The drive was very enjoyable, with interesting conversation and I learnt a lot about Scottish history. Ryan is very personable and a wealth of information! It was a truly wonderful and memorable day. I highly recommend Ryan and Sgurr tours.

          The perfect private highlands tour
          Let me start off by saying I was ready to rate Sgurr tours 5 stars before even taking the tour. Ryan is extremely prompt and detailed with email responses, and made planning our two days of tours with him an easy experience. I had a general idea of places to see throughout Skye and the Glencoe area, and Ryan made sure to include those in the itinerary as well as adding on locations we had no idea about-but were so glad to have seen! We did the Isle of Skye day tour, and it was the most beautiful 11 hours of my life. During the tour Ryan provided us with the history of the areas we drove by which added highly to the experience. The day is timed and planned perfectly, he has it down to a science! We truly felt we saw everything skye had to offer in the comfort of his well kept and roomy Mercedes-Benz van. I wasn't sure if Ryan could top himself for how well day 1 went, but day 2 just got better! It was jam packed with beautiful locations. Glenfinnan viaduct to see the Harry Potter train drive by, fort William, Loch Ness, and the incredible Glencoe area. Ryan took us to all of the scenic viewpoints where we could stop to take in the jaw dropping landscapes and grab some pictures. He also brought along his professional camera and took incredible pictures for us that will be treasured! I cannot recommend this company more. By the end of the two days we felt like we had made a new friend, and seen so much of the beauty that the highlands has to offer. Ryan is incredible with conversation and stories and the hours spent driving around the highlands were filled with history, laughs, incredible views, and good company (and even some whisky!) Ryan started this business himself, and the pride/attention to detail he puts in really shines through and makes the customer experience unique and special. Money and time very well spent, you will not regret booking with his business!

          A fun day exploring the highlands!
          Gavin was a fantastic guide and just fun to spend the day with on our tour. It was only two of us which made it nice to be able to adjust how long we stayed at each location. The vehicle was very nice as well. It was a wonderful tour! If they had availability while we stay in Skye, we would have booked with them again for later this week. We highly recommend it and have already provided individual referrals to friends back home who have plans to visit the area later this summer.

          Highland wilderness adventure!!
          Fantastic tour for people who are interested in photography and outdoor adventure! Ryan gave us loads of good tips and inspiration. We really enjoyed our day out - even in winter, Glen Affric is breathtaking! We got so many cool photos and memories to take home and Ryan was an amazing mentor and host. Would highly recommend this tour!!

          Great photography tour!
          I had a great day on the Glen Affric tour with Ryan. Glen Affric is a beautiful place with the glen, river, forest and mountains. Because you can reach multiple places from the same parking space, you don’t have to spend too much time in the car. With some photography tips from Ryan I got some good shots from the viewpoint and other places. Throughout the day I had nice conversations with Ryan. He was really helpful and never made the trip feel rushed. Thank you for the amazing day, I can definitely recommend people to book a tour with you!

          Great day and stunning views!
          We left early to catch the sunrise in the mountains and it was really worth it. Afterwards we checked out a few other places and I made some nice shots. Ryan was a nice and funny guide. He adjusted the tour to my needs and even took care about hot drinks and snacks. So if you're in the area and want to have a look around the highlands and do some photography, ask him. I will defintely book a tour with him again.

          It was fantastic trip and happy day!!! Stunning views, new skills, friendly chat!!!
          Tour has covered a lot of beautiful sites (hills, rivers, waterfalls, forest). Tour guide Ryan is in love with the Highlands and shows the best views. During all tour he helped with my camera and I gained new experience and skills. It doesn't matter what season or weather you are going to travel. You will enjoy the beauty of nature, the silence of the forest or the sound of a waterfall. Friendly chat with Ryan and having coffee with river view is much pleasure too. It was unbelievable and unforgettable day. Thank you so much for it, Ryan.

          Simple brilliance
          Amazing. My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Our party of 3 had a great time seeing all the sites. Tour covered many sites, and included hot drinks and snacks along the way too! Highlights simply too many to mention! This review would not be complete without a shoutout to Ryan, our guide who was fun, funny and took stunning pictures with endless patience, nothing was too much trouble, thank you Ryan, simple brilliance.

        I would highly recommend this tour to the Isle of Skye! Ryan is a fantastic tour guide. He is very knowledgeable about the history, friendly and easy to talk to. He went above and beyond to make sure my family and I saw everything we wanted to. His driving was great on those narrow and twisty roads!

        Gavin took us to Isle of Skye and made the trip so worth it. A beautiful country and he explained everything so well. The history of Scotland Highlands should be told to everyone. He was very friendly and funny as well. We had a blast with him. I learned about his country and he asked my country, which I believe he found very interesting.

        We had an amazing time on our tour! Gavin was a fantastic guide--knowledgeable about the area and with great stories to share. He took us to some off-the-beaten path spots around Isle of Skye. Highly recommend this company, best way to see Skye hands down!

        My family was so excited for our tour on the Isle of Skye. We booked with Ryan, who communicated well leading up to the tour. However once we actually got on the tour, it wasn’t anything like it was promoted to be. The entire time Ryan complained about past guests, complained about not being tipped, flirted with every woman he came in touch with, and talked about himself the entire tour. Worse still, he was completely unprofessional (and overtly sexual with the women in our party). And his driving was absolutely awful.

        Though his proposed itinerary is being able to stop and see so much in Skye, we barely saw anything at all.

        I would certainly never recommend him to anyone. There are other private tours and I would strongly suggest looking at one of those.

        Hello, I am terribly sorry that you feel like your Skye tour wasn’t what was promoted, and I am genuinely upset reading your review. I try to go above and beyond to ensure my passengers have the best experience possible. I am passionate about The Highlands and strive to deliver high quality tours - so much so, that I remember all my passengers! (1-day Skye tour from Inverness on 9th July for a party of 3). Skye has many sites, and it is impossible to see them all in one day when departing from Inverness. I try to adapt to the requests of my passengers, so they can capture the highlights in the time that’s been pre-booked. Even if that’s a toe dip in Loch Ness!. Summer is the busiest season on Skye, and I like to take passengers away from the usual busy spots and into the hidden gems, traffic is also heavy due to the tourist season – so I must take this into account. I always have my google maps tracker history as a reminder of what places we visit and for how long 😊 So here is a reminder of your itinerary from the day; Dochgarrach Hairy Coos, Lochness dip, Loch Clunie, Eilean Donan Castle visit, Sligacahn Bridge, Portree (lunch) The Quiraing, Old Man of Storr hike (2hrs), Portree comfort stop, Achnasheen comfort stop – Inverness. I also hope you enjoyed the professional photos that I took of you all at the fantastic spots! this is an extra I like to include - so you can take home your experience of the stunning locations. Your review includes some accusations, which I take very seriously. These are not sitting well with me, as I have never had negative feedback like it – nor was anything said by you on the day, or thereafter. I take pride in my friendly, genuine personality, and I always have a sense of humour on my tours – so I profusely apologise for any offense I may have caused. You are perhaps referring to the Old Man of Storr naming history! Which is maybe not for everyone to hear, but a rather interesting fact with the Gaelic and Old Norse language twist. I have had lone females on my tours, who have responded to say that they felt completely comfortable with me, and I know the locals so much so that we have ‘banter’. TripAdvisor allows you to express your opinion of an experience, but I would say your opinion is somewhat defamatory and unfair. I noticed that you left a similar review on TrustIndex – where you have insinuated that I coerce passengers into leaving positive reviews and have negative reviews removed. I can assure you, that all my reviews are 100% authentic and genuine. If I removed reviews - your review would not be on here. This is (another) serious accusation, which could potentially damage my reputation and the business that I am so passionate about and have worked tirelessly to establish over this past 18 months. Therefore, please consider your reviews and take into account consequences for business owners before posting such unfair accusations on a public platform. Additionally, passenger safety and comfort on board is paramount to me. I have over 28 years driving experience, including fire engine driving and large coach driving. Unfortunately, the journey to Skye and back includes narrow roads, that are extremely winding with a lot of corners and bumps. I can assure you that previous passengers have never complained about my driving. Please feel free to contact me direct via email should you wish to discuss this further. Very best wishes, Ryan

        I cannot say enough positive things about this tour. Ryan was an absolutely amazing guide and a phenomenal photographer! He is incredibly knowledgeable about the area and even taught us some Galicia! Now I am returning to the USA I’m realizing how special his pictures will be in our keeping our memories!

        Ryan was great! Very friendly and kind! He made sure we had a great experience and had the perfect shots for pictures in the Highlands! His van was very comfortable and offered great accommodations! I would highly recommend Ryan again and would use his services again if I return to the highlands!
