    Sophia was very knowledgeable and gave great historical facts as well as Harry Potter ones!
    LOVED the trivia questions and sorting into houses at the beginning of the tour.
    Although we came during Fringe, it didn’t impact on the tour or being able to stop off at any of the locations.
    Money well spent 😊

    Tip: use the toilets in the National History Museum before it starts.

    The speaker was factual and brief, although a lapel mic could have helped.the acoustics are a bit challenging.

    We loved every little bit of this tour. Alison, you rocked it. Thank you for sharing your knowledge, funny little stories, and all the useful info! You’ve made our day and we really want to get to explore more parts of Scotland as this was, as you’ve said, just the tip of the iceberg. Thank you for an amazing day!

    I had the most wonderful time on this tour, which I was so obligingly allowed to go on by the organisers when I'd accidentally booked a Loch Ness tour on the wrong day, and missed it. I knew almost nothing about the Outlander series (Googled the plot frantically on the bus lol) but by the end I couldn't wait to buy the books and watch the series.

    Baillie was a fantastic tour-guide, who's ability to speak multiple languages and play the bagpipes, as well as his background in theatre, made every person on the tour feel welcomed and included, and fully immersed in the Outlander world. I enjoyed myself so much, and could not recommend Highland Explorer Tours highly enough.

    James was a great guide. If you love outlander, you’ll love this tour. I’ve only watched a few episodes but the tour covered many spots the show was filmed in.

    The tour was perfect! We had a beautiful day and Andrew T. was a terrific guide! Both witty and knowledgeable, he taught us a lot about the filming locations as well as Jacobite history. We saw everything listed on the advertisement and then some! I was pleasantly surprised to also get to see the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots. If I had more time in Scotland I would definitely book more tours with Timberbush Tours!!

    Our tour guide Connor was a great guy and very friendly
    I enjoyed the stories he has been telling us on the road.
    Castle itself is amazing there are no words to describe it.
    I totally would recommend you to take this trip especially if you are a harry potter fan but even if you are not it is a great trip to see an old castle and the quiet town next to it
    A nice break from Edinburgh chaos

    What a wonderful time my husband and I had with Sam. I am a true Potterhead, but Sam made my non-HP fan entertained as well. We saw so many things (including wizard chess pieces and Dolly the sheep) that we weren’t expecting. Sam also gave us a great tour of Edinburgh and recommended a Fringe show for us (which was great as well). It was such a fun morning, filled with twists, turns, laughter, and treats, and an experience we’re glad we didn’t miss. Sam does not disappoint and his HP knowledge was outstanding.

    I had 2 day-tours and ended up having the second one as an solo-private tour. Mary’s Meanders went out of their way to give me an excellent experience! You don’t feel rushed while your at the locations and are given enough time to explore. Anne is a wonderful and very kind person and guide, she knows so much about the history of sites we visited! We had a lovely day together on the dragonfly-tour and Anne was kind enough to add a bonus by stopping by the Outlander-studio’s and as an extra bonus we visited some visible remains of the Antonine Wall and made a stop at the Falkirk wheel (not Outlander related, but still an amazing sight to see). Thank you so much Anne!

    I had a really special time at the Outlander walking tour in Edinburgh. The weather was very unfortunate that day (super cold and rainy), so I was the only person who wanted to brave the weather, and I was so grateful my wonderful tour guide Sam stuck it out with me. I ended up with an awesome and personalized tour all to myself! I loved the mix of Outlander info (both TV show and book) and Scottish history and was also happy my tour guide was an enthusiastic Outlander fan. It was a really unique and special afternoon and I highly recommend it to any Outlander fan visiting Edinburgh.

    The app worked well and I only got lost a few times. App helpful to get me righted again. If going in summer 2022 be aware of the construction at theBank of Scotland -you need to go through the wooden temporary pathway. Good to be able to stop and start at my own pace. Fun stories if Harry Potter back story. I would do another audio tour with this app. Recommend downloading the app (use Wi-Fi) and instructions to your start place ahead of time.

    Kat was amazing!! So much knowledge and fun facts in addition to Harry Potter. It moved at a great pace. And we saw a lot of areas we would not have known about on our own. My 11 year old loved the Harry Potter part. My 15 year old and husband and I loved it all. Big thumbs up!

    We had a wonderful time on our tour. Our guide, Nigel, was well versed in the history of each site and had fascinating stories that brought each to life. We took the 5 hour tour and loved ever minute. I’d recommend to any newbie to London who wants an overview of the sites.

    The mini bus was on stand early and so people arriving before the scheduled time could board immediately, which was appreciated.

    The driver, James, was very knowledgeable and had a good sense of humour. There was no dull moment and he was extremely informative, showing and describing things en route that were not related to Outlander, but which were of interest to the six tourists in the bus. He was most accommodating, taking pictures for people, opening doors and assisting a less able, older passenger as needed.

    James introduced us to the taste of Scotch whisky and gave small samples to everyone on the bus. That was an extra that was appreciated.

    During the lunch stop at a teahouse in Falkland it was not explained to the group that the soup, sandwiches and tea on offer were not included in the tour price. We were told that this is where we would eat and we all accepted what we given only to be surprised that an additional charge was to be levied. It was not expensive, the portions were good and the food was delicious. The service was great too. Thus, we were not unhappy to pay. Actually, we saw later that the Outlander tour brochure did state that food is extra, but the way in which it was presented on the day was a bit misleading.

    Another aspect of this tour that needs to be addressed is the amount of time offered for visiting Outlander sites. The time given was minimal and the cost of entrance fees to sites mount when couples or families are touring together, especially given that the tour itself cost £95.00 per person, so people expect more time to soak in the attractions of a favourite TV show. At Doune Castle (Castle Leoch) we only were given 25-minutes to tour the inside of a castle of particular interest to Outlander viewers. That is not sufficient time.

    Overall, the tour was a good one.
