    Colin was an excellent guide - funny, knowledgeable, and a great driver. It’s a looong trip for one day but Colin helped pass the time with a lot of good tunes and bad Dad jokes. Glencoe and Loch Ness were well worth the trip, and the “atmospheric” winter weather made it all the more dramatic. Recommended!

    Our three day tour of the Isle of Skye left me speechless, and I have Kenny K., our tour guide to thank. Kenny could’ve treated us like flight attendants treat passengers. We are seated. We are told how to behave. We are told about our next stop. Conversation is cordial. He sits down, he drives and we don’t hear from him again until we get to our first location, but that’s not what we got. We got an engaging, funny, intelligent, well-meaning, and well-informed music loving gentleman who cared about and for each of us equally. He gave us three days we will never forget. Kenny led the way. He was the reason. So thanks to all 11 new friends on the bus and thanks to Kenny Kirk for bringing us to the Isle of Skye and making sure we saw all its beauty.

    This was an awesome experience and you get your money's worth!! Convenient starting point right on the Royal Mile. Tom was are bus driver and he was GREAT!! Extremely knowledgeable and funny! It is all of the estimated 13hrs so figure that into your planning. The views from the train and the stops that Tom made will make for some great pics! It was a nice contrast from the busy Royal Mile. I would do this again and would highly recommend (even if you aren't a Harry Potter fan).

    We absolutely loved Shug’s knowledge and story telling. He balanced a smooth bus ride with enrapturing stories, trivia and tips for the journey.
    Taking a lunch was the most recommended tip here but we actually enjoyed eating at all the places that shug recommended along the drive. Especially the whiskey ice cream! Our packed lunch remained a back up 😀.

    Had a great time on the underground tour with Dr Knox. Equal parts informative, spooky and funny. Great banter throughout. Would highly recommend!

    Our tour guide, Jen, was very knowledgeable and very friendly. She was also able to accommodate through the strike that was happening in Scotland. She rearranged the tour so we could see rooms before they closed early. We enjoyed it!

    It was absolutely amazing. The tour guide, Marcus, did a great job in telling something about the history of the city and stories about the vaults in a way that was very interesting ans entertaining. He also included everyone, always waiting until everyone was in the circle/room. It’s definitely worth the money and your time!

    In all honesty it was our first time to be on a three day tour and the overall experience was fantastic.
    The majestic sceneries of the highlands were highlighted throughout the tour. The allotted time for every spot was sufficient enough for us to immerse ourselves and savor the moment with the nature. We were astonished with the exemplary history, culture and tradition of the inhabitants and places that we visited.

    Given the fact that it was raining during the tour, our tour guide (MAJ)never fails to uplift the mood given the circumstances at that time. He was very informative; with almost everything under the sun about the tour, zealous, charming and was on the dot every day and we would also like to commend his choice of music from classic to modern scottish music/songs to pop & rock..we love it all lol and he even went out of his way to show us the best spot for star gazing,it was a wonderful evening and we are so thankful to Maj for it.

    In addition, the hotel was lovely as well, it is cozy, and close enough that one is able to walk to the town center where there is an array of pubs & restaurants to choose from.

    We would highly recommend the Highland experience tour to everyone who wants to unwind, connect themselves with the nature and is keen to know the great history that took part in the highland of Scotland.

    Monique did a wonderful job guiding us through the city! Very knowledgeable and kept it fun with Harry Potter trivia and some insight in JK Rowling’s life and inspiration. Fun way to see Edinburgh!

  • I absolutely loved this! Our guide, Charles, is a master storyteller, and I learned so much about the "hidden" history and the fascinating stories that surround the Royal Mile!

    Will do another tour with them next time I come to Edinburgh!
