We had a tour with David in The beginning of May. He is an excellent driver and was very informative about the area. We saw bottle nosed dolphins and a rainbow on the way home. We fell asleep on the trip back to Oban . Our belly was full with delicious short bread cookies. Thank you!

Based on the excellent reviews posted on TripAdvisor, my husband and I chose Scenic Tours, with David as a driver, to chauffeur us to various distilleries in Speyside - We were not disappointed. David emailed with us frequently before our arrival to provide us with information about the distilleries and plan our tour. The tour itself was lovely. David picked... More

Touring with David was the highlight of my trip. Over 2 days - we covered my entire wish list of sights at a relaxed pace. David also provided a number of surprises that were off the beaten path and well worth a stop. Whether you want to visit historical sites, distilleries, a woolen mill, the lochs or the countryside and... More

Hi Nora, thanks so much for taking the time to post such a lovely and positive review. It really was a pleasure getting to know you over the 2 days and showing you around a wee bit of the Highlands.

We had a great trip to various distilleries with David last month on our trip to Scotland. He was a solid driver, clean comfy car, knowledgeable about the area and Scottish history and current news. Gave us good suggestions about our travels, we truly enjoyed our day tasting whiskey and thank David for his business!

Would highly recommend David, we had a lovely half day tour. As my husband has mobility problems it was an ideal way to see the beautiful countryside and David could not have been more helpful.

We travelled with David on a day trip off a cruise ship in July 2016. David provided us with excellent service including being on time, safe driving and providing insights into various places along the way. We would highly recommend David to anyone looking for a private tour in the Invergordon area.

My wife and I spent 7 hours with our guide David. The name of his small company, Scenic Routes-Day Tours clearly explains what he offers tourists. He showed us breathtaking scenery while touring the small country roads all around Loch Ness. There is little traffic on the quiet, winding roads, something that organized tours do not offer tourists. We discovered... More

We had a wonderful day touring with David who picked us up from our cruise ship at the port of Invergorden. We highly recommend David to others who want to do some independent, customized touring.
