It was wet and windy but totally atmospheric... so Scotland. We had lots of places to ourselves. Travelling in Scotland in the winter is not for the faint hearted but I feel we were able to get a true Scottish experience through the commentary of our fantastic guide ... who also provided Scottish music for our journey. Loved being in the countryside. The Isle of Skye is so beautiful.

Great guide, true scottish highlands experience

Great tour which gave us a true Scottish experience of the highlands. Paul G, our guide was excellent, and he made the trip come alive for us. He packed in a lot of things to do in the three days and yet somehow kept it very relaxed and at the sensible pace. He is very articulate in his explanations and related well with a diverse group. Overall a great tour, great guide.

Amazing Highlands and Skye Tour

This tour completely blew us away! Nick was a perfect guide. He had so much love for the country and area and told both historical stories, but also wove in legends and tales. We loved that he had his own personal soundtrack that fit different areas we were exploring and he made the whole tour incredibly person. He was friendly and helpful and really brought Scotland and Skye alive for us. We were able to pack in so many gorgeous places and my husband and I were both floored with the immensity of the beauty on Skye. I only wished we'd been able to see the Fairy Glens, but it's hard to pack so much into just one day on the island. We'd recommend this tour to anyone we knew. Absolutely worth every penny.

This tour exceeded our expectations! Our tour guide Ian was so accommodating, telling us tales and folklore of the highlands. Not to mention the history of the areas that we traveled. He even played music on the bus (a mixture of Scottish and other artists) which made the experience truly special! We saw so many sights within those few days! We stayed in the small town of Portree at the Tongadale Hotel. It was a lovely hotel in the middle of town with a restaurant and bar downstairs. It was perfect for our two night stay. We can't say enough about this tour and did not want it to end! We would definitely do it all over again!
