Husband and I are booking "Skye" tour as well as the miscellaneous "Highland" one back to back, Monday and Tuesday June 19 and 2o. Highlands are vast, so a tour seems best bet. Queries: 1. Did you feel you got out of vehicle enough? 2. we're you actually touring, walking around, going into locations or snapping photos only to jump again? Can you eat lunch on your own or is it with group? seems to be, roughly $140 for each day. That's a good deal cheaper than others. so is there any negative reason for either trip? I see the itinerary but it doesn't list order or how long in each place. Is that decided on the go by the group? Finally was the return good? we have Caledonian sleeper train booked and board at 20:00 pm. Seem doable for that time limit on second day?
