After a few minutes I got the hang of his Scottish lingo 😉 the stops where plentiful for some great photos and souvenirs.the bed and breakfast just around Inverness was superb and the village very picturesque. The second bed and breakfast not so 😱 my name wasn't... More

Slightly strange tour. My friend and I boarded in Glasgow- we weren't aware it called at Edinburgh first. As a result we were the very last on the bus and could not sit together (despite getting to our boarding point half an hour early in naive hopefulness). Bus was small and cramped. Our guide, Michael, was friendly but his stories... More

Did the 3 day Highlands and Isle of Skye tour. Bus driver/ guide Moray was fantastic. It was a pleasure listening to his stories, his knowledge was great . He had just the right amount of humour and kept the tour going at the right pace. Only complaint was I could not understand him with his true Scottish accent...only joking,... More

Our Driver/Guide was simply the best! Lots of lovely things on the way. I highly recommend going on a weekday during peak summer months. We heard stories of the traffic around Loch Lomond on weekends. It can really cut into your tour otherwise. Spend the extra money on the Inveraray Castle tour, it's really worth it. It has a wonderful... More

This is a very enjoyable tour. The guide, John Paul, was very easy going and knowledgeable. We were blessed with incredible weather as we took in the sights. There were lots of breaks to take photos, buy souvenirs, and grab a bite to eat.

Tour was arranged in US by AAA Viatours. The scenery, historical sites, and villages we observed were remarkable. The 2 B and B night stops were superior and full of local flavor, walking distance to village and pubs, etc. Downside was cramped bus and guide whose English was so "Scottish," that most of us got about 1/4 of his wonderful,...

Hi there, Thanks for taking the time to review your tour. All of our tours are run on luxury Mercedes mini-buses and mini-coaches. We believe that the combination of panoramic windows and small groups make these the ideal vehicle to run our tours on and for our passengers to enjoy Scotland. As a locally-owned and -run tour company, the majority... More

Excellent tours with visits to many breathtaking views of Scotland. Our guide, Moray, was very professional and knowledgeable about the history of the area, and had a great sense of humor as well. We even managed to catch the 'Hogwarts Express' at the Glenfinnan viaduct! Definitely recommended for anyone visiting Scotland for a short trip
