Top Notch Tour
Frymom
, Feb 2020
This was a fantastic tour despite the icy cold weather. Our tour guide, Andrew was outstanding! He took us to as many sites as possible despite the rain and hail, and we were in awe of the beauty of The Highlands and Isle of Skye. Our guide was so fun and really engaging. He had a great sense of humor. He showed us all the best places to take pictures and he took pictures too and sent them to us. He worked extra hard by choosing alternative sites when conditions didn’t allow us to visit a planned site. Our overnight accommodations were good. The bus was very comfortable even though I am prone to motion sickness I had no problems, and we made plenty of rest stops. Because it was February there were no crowds and the weather was fine most of the time. This tour was top notch. I highly recommend.

Our tour guide was delightful. The weather was a little rainy and the midges thick at times, but overall a lovely stay. Our evenings was spent at the Askival B & B that provided a great breakfast to begin each day. Lots of sheep to see too!!!

Too much time on too much bus!

It is a whirlwind tour on which I saw a great deal of Scotland, northwest of Edinburgh. The scenery through which the bus travels is breathtaking, and I got to see quite a few places in the course of 3 days. Maybe 3 days is not enough, so I would treat this tour as a taste of places you might want to return to without a bus full of people. Because of the distance covered, I spent entirely too much time on a bus, with no opportunity to hike or explore. I would suggest that Timberbush provide an exact itinerary, as the driver seemed to be making it up as he drove, especially on Skye, where there was little time to stop and walk. Dunvegan Castle was on the original advertisement for the trip, but I had to convince the driver to take us there. He said, "We're going to a castle tomorrow," as if all castles were the same. Well, to a resident, maybe they are, but to a tourist who has read some history, a castle occupied for most of its time and one destroyed and rebuilt are 2 different things, both of them worth visiting, which is, eventually, what we did. I wish that our driver had stuck to a more informational patter. He disturbed many of the women in the bus by making sexist comments. Drivers should stick to the facts and legends of the areas they are driving through and to; I did not appreciate his political opinions any more than his sexist comments. It would have been a more pleasant tour if I did not have to be insulted every time a woman came up in history. As for hiking the highlands, forget about it. There was no time. Also, do not go on a Sunday. Everything is closed on Sunday on Skye. I would like to have known that in advance.

We had a great time on our 3 day tour and saw some breathtaking spots in the highlands and on the Isle of Skye. Our guide Martin S. was super friendly and knew all the best secret spots and activities. He could answer all our questions perfectly and had a great taste in Scottish music :)

Martin was an excellent tour guide. He provided a great deal of history and local lore in understandable chunks so that you could really take in what you were seeing and get the full experience. The trip was a great success. Would definitely travel with Martin again. Scotland is a beautiful country. I am very glad that I had the opportunity to visit. Overall I would recommend that the first night's dinner is set up in advance. Portree is experiencing serious overbooking with the number of tourists and restaurants just could not accommodate everyone.

Our tour guide Graham was truly fantastic in every way. He obviously loved what he does, and it showed in all that he did on this 3 day tour. I wish I had an hour to write up a review that would do justice to how fantastic our tour was. That said, I would rather leave a review than never get around to doing it for the sake of time now that I'm back in the rat race off of our vacation. He went above and beyond to make this trip enjoyable. He was knowledgeable on little facts of interest, played music for us that associated with different places. My wife was about 25 weeks along, and he made sure to look our for her as well. Also took time to discuss places to eat, the culture, etc. He truly looked out for us and our needs over the 3 days. Everywhere we went everyone knew him. He was polite, and kind in every way. I obviously can't vouch for all their tour guides, but if they're half as good as Graham, they'd still deserve 5 stars. I've had very few experiences that matched the level that was had with this tour. Very solid I would book with this company again. I've been recommending them to all of my friends and family since we got back. He made what would have been a great trip fantastic. Highly recommend. I'm hoping to get a group together and request that the tour company assign Graham to our group. That said, I'd book with them again regardless based on my experience.

It was an amazing trip. Our driver and Guide Andrew was very informative and helpful. He stopped at the right place for toilet breaks and great places for a photo. He knew where to visit and how to go around problems e.g. too many tourists, traffics etc. The tour visited many national parks that are not advertised in the title, such as Loch Lomond and Cairngorms National Park. There are some places we could not visit, but this is due to time constraint. I think this is a great way for a first time Scotland visitors to explore Scotland before visiting again.

Beautiful scenery galore Friendly tour driver. Alan was flexible to the desires of the entire group and very friendly. He listened to all questions patiently and offered answers for the ones he could and was honest about the ones he didnt know, and would research these when able to. Lots of sights. Wonderful weather, we were told many times we were extremely lucky to have 2 sunny days in a row The quaint seaside village of Portree was stunning and full of local flavor. We had an excellent at Antlers Bar and Grill, the meal was amazing and our waiter was a lot of fun. Dulse And Brose restaurant was top notch with a cozy feel to it and a food was presented beautifully. We were blessed with sunny weather the whole tour and were able to so many beautiful sites on this trip, it was trully amazing. Sites we were able to visit were: Old Man of Stoor, Kilt Rock, Lealt Falls, Skye Museum of Island Life, Flora MacDonald's Memorial, Dunvegan Castle, Eilean Donan Castle, and Fort Augustus Loch Ness. Again, the weather was great so we were able to do a lot outside. Our only complaint with this tour was we had a group on our bus that was late returning for most of the sites we visited so that held us up some. Another tour we went on was very clear on when the bus would be leaving and held to the schedule a bit better. But, all things considered, we loved this tour and would do it again given the chance. Timberbush Tours was great all around.
