    I cannot recommend this trip enough. The Highlands are a beautiful place to experience. This was on our list of must see places and we were not disappointed. On the way to Loch Ness you make many stops to see highlights of the Highlands. The ride in itself is scenic and wonderful. We signed up for a day trip and had a blast. Brian was AMAZING. He was spirited and an excellent guide along the journey. He went above and beyond to be accommodating and entertaining. This included a themed playlist of fun music along the journey. We loved spending the day as his group! Highly recommend the Hairy Coo tours. They were timely and organized The coach was high quality and the memories made were irreplaceable.

    The smaller group is the way to go on these trips. The minibus was comfortable and our guide, Jim, was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of information. You are on the minibus a lot so be prepared for that, you go a good distance. The stops are fairly short except for the Loch Ness cruise, which is 50 minutes long so you spend about 90 minutes there. The cruise is fine and, since you are there, might as well do it. Other stops are 5 minutes for quick pics at some great scenery. A long day, but overall good one.

    A great tour! So many amazing stops along the way and then a bunch more experiences on Skye. Our tour guide, Cliff, was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and told lots of interesting stories, both historical and pop culture references about Scotland and our locations. Highly recommend.

    Our tour of the Highlands from Edinburgh was absolutely amazing! Ryan Riley was our guide and tailored the tour for our needs and time constraints in mind. He did a fantastic job and the day was perfect. We cannot thank him enough. We are already talking about our next trip to Scotland and will definitely request to have him show us more of the beautiful country. Thanks again, Ryan! And let us know when you make it to the states. Maybe we can meet up and show you around.

    Isle of Skye was amazing. Our tour guide, Kelly “Queen of Scotland”, made it enjoyable, educational , and especially fun. She is an incredible story teller who has definitely found her calling as a Scotland guide. Highly recommend this tour particularly with Kelly.

    Sean was an excellent tour guide. He was engaging and thoughtful. He had great information and interesting stories at every site we stopped at. He was interested in what we had to say and answered all our questions. We would highly recommend Sean and the Walking Edinburgh tour as a great introduction to your time in the city.

    Great day trip to Loch Ness.
    Chris, our Gide, tells great stories about the history of Schotland and his own life.
    He tells us about what we can see from the road and on the way home we make an extra stop by the Forth bridge.
    Time flies and this trip is ending.
    Also thanks to the driver Nathan.
    He drives safely and comfortably.

    This was an amazing over the top tour experience! Our guide, Fraser, delivered everything promised on the tour booking site and then some! Started on time, start location was easy to find. First stop was the Kelpies with ample time to take all the photos we wanted to. Then continued to Balloch by Loch Lomond where we were given an hour 30 minutes to either tour the little town or take an hour boat ride. Afterwards we headed to lunch BUT Fraser made a detour so we can have an upclose experience with the Highland cows, amazing, friendly, beautiful creatures!!! The last stop was at Stirling Castle with plenty of time to tour the whole grounds, exhibits and take photos of the whole area from higher grounds.
    I highly recommend this tour as the operator and guide delivered more than promised.

    Five stars is not enough for this company and our wonderful guide Nathan. It was so nice to be picked up right at our residence and Nathan brought two booster seats for my kids (5 and a very small 8) so they were able to see out the windows. The vehicle was spacious and clean and Nathan had brought a picnic basket full of tasty snacks which was a huge hit with the kids. It was freezing cold and this wonderful man still stopped and took every picture we asked and hiked all through the Highlands with us. Nathan was a wealth of knowledge and we learned so much Scottish history throughout our day together. My husband and I are huge Harry Potter fans and we were able to see Dumbledore's final resting place, the location of Hagrid's Hut and the Forbidden Forest, and we were right on time to watch the Hogwarts Express cross the viaduct. We opted for more Harry Potter locations rather than Loch Ness at Nathan's suggestion and it was absolutely perfect. We stopped at a nice little restaurant for lunch which was delicious and just overall could not be more pleased with our experience. We were planning to go to dinner after our tour and Nathan kindly dropped us off at the restaurant when we were all finished. I cannot recommend this company enough, I believe any tour you choose with them will be spectacular!

    David was an excellent guide. Even though I have lived many years in Edinburgh, I learned a lot. I found some parts of the climb quite difficult, mainly due to scree on steep paths, so was very grateful for his patience and support to steady me. He was also very good company. Thank you. 12/10 from me.

    Great hike to see the natural beauty of Scotland! The hike is very steep so hiking poles are recommended if you are not an experienced hiker. Rishi is very knowledgeable and provided a history of the area; a description of the geographical landscape including the flowers, trees. and grasses; along with the birds and animals. We saw highland cows, sheep, and heard several different birds. He provided a great selection of snacks with bottled water. This is one hike not to miss while you are visiting Edinburgh!
