Response from Timberbush T, Front Office Manager at Orkney, Ullapool & The Northern Highlands - 5 Day Tour from Glasgow
Responded 19 Sep 2019
Hello PeterLee95, Thanks for taking the time to leave a review for your Driver-Guide Andrew T and your 5 Day tour to Orkney and the Highlands. It's wonderful to hear you enjoyed your time with us! I am so pleased to hear that Andrew made the tour extra special for you with his knowledge on history and culture etc., his language lessons and excellent guiding skills. I am glad you enjoyed the stories and learned about Scotland in the most scenic and memorable way! I am glad the itinerary and timings were not too busy for you and that you found the tour relaxed and flexible! I am sorry to hear that you were roomed with unfortunate snorers but as you have kindly stated we would prevent this if we could! Skye and Orkney in one tour would indeed be a great tour - but this would increase it to a 8 day round trip so hopefully this can be configured in the future! Thank you again for the kind review. Please think of us again if you wish to tour more of Scotland! All the best, Shea
