I rate this tour 10/5 stars! Driver was witty, knowledgeable and super laid back. Vans were extremely comfortable. I took the Oban trip and I've never seen anything more beautiful in my entire life! I definitely recommend it.

We had a great tour with Discover Scotland's Isle of Skye, The Highlands and Loch Ness 3 day tour. Our driver/tour leader Bobby was a wealth of knowledge which he shared with excitement. Our time on the Isle of Skye was perfect including great weather. Bobby even made certain that we got to see some hairy coos up close!
